After I talked a fair amount about how much I LOVE the YSL Sheer Candy Cool Guava lip color I had a few ladies ask if there was a less pricey alternative.
So I set sail toward Walgreens in search of one.
Then I found one that I though “eh, this has got to be pretty close.”
Then I took photos to show how similar they are.
Then I looked at the photos.
And then…I felt, like, really dumb.
Because I paid $34 bucks for something that I could have had pretty much the exact same effect with for $5.
And I call myself FRUGAL!
I comforted me for having bought the YSL by saying that I love the packaging (it is pretty great) and that it is a smidge warmer and feel the teensiest bit more shiny but aside from that they are super similar.
Of course, I had to share this find but it also got me thinking about other dupes.
Are there any products you are dying to have but can’t bare to make the splurge?
Let me know if the comments and I will go on a hunt for you!
Also! I’m going to make a Q&A video so if you have any burning questions at all (about anything!) throw ’em out there and I’ll do my best to answer them:)
