Do you like to try new makeup but don’t want to have to take out a bank loan first? Me too! I have been trying makeup dupes, which are affordable alternatives to expensive, high end makeup. You can get the same look for less.

I have a free coupon database at the top of my home page where you can find coupons for popular makeup brands such as L’Oreal, Maybelline, Cover Girl and more. Just type in the name of the brand you are searching for, and the current coupons will be displayed.

The makeup dupes can be found at Target, Walmart, drugstores and online from Amazon.com.
