The best affordable beauty dupes
We know the drill. Obsessively checking your banking app for a balance update before buying another coffee, yet, the chance of a two-for-one deal or new product drop at your fave beauty boutique and you’ll be clicking ‘add to cart’ faster than you can say ‘actually broke’.
If you’re trying to do better, check out these dupes that’ll make less of a dent. They’re more cousins that twins but they’re definitely related. When payday rolls around, by all means jump on those luxe loves. Just remember to drop some dollars into your savings account too, because you can’t pay your rent in fleeky brows. Just sayin’.
