Hello Lover!

I received some messages from friends asking if there were similar products that they could use that didn’t cost as much.
Of course that made me rummage through my makeup collection, Target, and local beauty stores to find what I think are pretty decent alternatives that don’t break the bank.

Here is my list of swaps:

Fit Chick's Simple Makeup Swaps - Vol 1

1. Moisturizer
Estee Lauder DayWear Plus runs about $45 VS St.Ives Collagen Elastin for $4.50

2. Primer

Smashbox Primer usually goes for $15 to $36 dollars VS ELF Primer for $6 bucks.
Honestly, the ELF primer is a little lighter and goes a long way.

3. Foundation
Clinique Even Better Foundation is about $30 VS L’Oreal Lumi True Match $6
I literally have only used Clinique since I started wearing makeup but if I had to choose a close second this would be it.

4. High Definition Powder
Make Up Forever HD Microfinish Powder for $35.94 VS ELF High Definition Powder for $6

5. Concealer
Estee Lauder Smoothing Creme Concealer for about $23 VS NYX HD Concealer $6
I know the Estee Lauder is a Creme but the stick has the same thickness, covers just as well and lasts just as long.

6. Kabuki Brush
Givenchy Kabuki Brush for $49 VS Crown Brush Kabuki Brush for $5

7. Booster
Benefit Sun Beam Booster for $26 VS Physicians Formula Happy Booster for $14
I personally love both the Sun Beam is a liquid and the Physicians Formula is a powder but they both give a sun kissed look.

8. Eyebrows
Lancome Le Crayon Poudre for $25.50 VS Wet N Wild Ultimate Brow Kit for $5
I own both and a lot of high end brow products. I use the brow kit over all of them.

9. Eyeliner
Stila Smudge Pot for $20 VS Rimmel Scandal Eyes Gel Liner for $6
The smudge pot is a little thicker but Rimmel gel liner is a good starter if your interested in trying cream eyeliners.

10. Mascara
Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara for $27.50 VS Covergirl Lashblast Mascara for $8
This Covergirl mascara is one of my favorite mascaras
