Beauty: Drugstore Dupe from Almay

Stylish StuffJulie SaldarriagaComment

I absolutely love finding affordable, beautiful dupes for high-end products. This balm from Almay in "Blooming" is the perfect dupe for Urban Decay's Naked Lipgloss in "Love Child." What I love about the balm is that it's not too sticky, and it's a perfect shade of pink. Urban Decay's gloss definitely lasts a bit longer when it comes to the color, but this is a great substitute for glam gals on a budget!

Both products have great results and lasting effects on your lips. According to Urban Decay, "86% of participants had a significant improvement in the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and said their lips felt nourished... 76% had a significant improvement in volume and hydration." So, if you can afford the $20 price tag, it's definitely worth it!

If you're looking for something more affordable, that is still good for your pout, Almay's Color + Care is gluten-free, hypoallergenic, and has lip conditioning properties for less than $5. Either way, your lips are going to feel luscious and look beautiful. These two shades are ideal for a natural, feminine look.
