By  - 5 months ago

If there’s one thing makeup junkies look forward to during overseas trips — it’s all the makeup waiting to be discovered. Entering a foreign drugstore is a little daunting, especially with shelves upon shelves of lesser known brands.

But don’t get too overwhelmed! Here are 7 European drugstore dupes for high end cult-faves.

Kiko Water Eyeshadow in Light Gold vs ABH Illuminator in So Hollywood

This instagram favorite brand may have fazed out their So Hollywood highlighter, but you can get the same golden glow with this Kiko eyeshadow and it’s buttery soft formula.

Essence Camouflage Concealer vs Tarte Shape Tape

Only a few concealers can hold a candle to Tarte’s Shape Tape. It’s known for its full-coverage, non-creasing formula, and many claim that the Essence Camouflage Concealer does the same!

Rimmel Natural Bronzer vs Too Faced Soleil Matte Bronzer

It’s always summer in the Philippines, so we at least have to pretend we’re at the beach every other weekend. Rimmel’s Natural Bronzer has a smooth satin finish with gold flakes for that extra punch.
