How much do you think you have spent on makeup and beauty products since you started wearing them? Well, grab onto something because you will be shocked to learn that the average woman spends $15,000 on makeup in her lifetime! Insane, right? Although the amount may come as a surprise, the truth is not so shocking when you look at the facts according to Mint. On average, we spend $43 on makeup per shopping trip which adds up to a little over $200 a year! I bet you’re now wondering how you can avoid spending so much on cosmetics without compromising quality. Enter dupes! When it comes to cosmetics, you can almost always find a cheaper alternative to the suit your needs.

Let’s start with the Naked Palette by Urban Decay. This is the palette that revolutionized the world of neutral shadows and 6 years later, the Naked clan including the original palette have proven that neutrals are far from boring. Featuring 12 gorgeous bronze-hued shades, packaged in almost-too-pretty to open chocolatey velvet case, this Urban Decay Palette has all the basics you need to create your favorite looks from the office to girls night out.

The W7 Cosmetics In The Buff:Lightly Toasted Palette is our pick for the ultimate dupe for Urban Decay’s original Naked. The British-made palette is not your typical drugstore alternative to a high-end product. It contains hues nearly identical to those in Naked with high-quality pigmentation and longevity. If you’re someone who wants to rock the trends but for less then this super affordable palette will fit the bill, only setting you back $21 on Amazon!
