OK, let’s be real for a second—as much as we love and fixate over our makeup products, there’s no denying that our beauty obsession is the enemy to our bank accounts. Like, as much as we want to purchase every luxury or cult-favorite release from Sephora or Ulta, our dwindling account balance always seems to scream at us to rein it in. So when we discovered a list of makeup-artist-approved makeup dupes on Reddit’s MakeupAddiction, we were the most amount of stoked.

While the users on the sub-Reddit aren’t all confirmed makeup artists, we can confirm that each of them are very (see: highly) makeup obsessed. The thread started when a curious user asked, “MUA, what’s the best dupe you’ve come across? It could be a dupe in terms of colour or formula,” and, with 31 comments and growing, the list is currently jam-packed with seriously on-point duplicates of brands, like Benefit and Nars. And to help make your duplicate hunt even easier, we’ve combed through them all and found the top five makeup dupes from the list. Click through to see them all, and give that credit card a break.
