Drugstore Beauty Doubles
I love high end make-up, but sometimes what I want to buy and the amount in my paycheck don't match up.  That means I'm always looking for a beauty bargain — especially when I can get a similar product for a third of the price! After scouring the aisles at the drug store,  I found some great products that are comparable to those high-end items I see behind expensive beauty counters. Here are some of my favorite "drugstore doubles":

NARS Turkish Delight, $24 & Bonnie Bell LipLites in Strawberry Parfait $3.75

Kim Kardashian made NARS Turkish Delight a cult classic, yet this gloss can be very sticky, not to mention more expensive.  LipLites is the drugstore alternative for this costly gloss.
