With there being SO MANY different lipstick brands it can be hard to choose which one better suites you or better yet.... which better suites your coin! I say that because as you know, beauty products can run a bit pricey depending on your budget.
Now I'm no big makeup fan at all, however I know some of you prefer the "known name brand" because we think their products may have a longer wear, or more pigmentation etc. and some do. However, did you know that some of the major cosmetic brands also own other brands making them the "parent company". This can be a major key as far as pricing because if you don't want to pay $17-30 for a lippie, maybe the parent company will have a dupe for a much lower price like $3.50-$7.99. Big difference right?!
Estee' Lauder owns: Clinique, Bobbi Brown, M.A.C, Tom Ford Beauty, Smash box and Tory Burch to name a few.
L'Oreal owns: Maybelline New York, Garnier, Lancome, Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren, The Body Shop, NYX, Urban Decay, Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) and more.
Louis Vuitton-Moet Hennessy (LVMH) owns: Dior, Givenchy, Make Up Forever, Sephora's namesake line, Kat Von D, Marc Jacobs and more.
Johnson & Johnson owns: Neutrogena, Aveeno, Clean & Clear, Lubriderm, Ambi and more.
With that being said, take a look below at some great, almost mirror dupes!
