Elf Dupes

Elf is a drugstore makeup brand that has been around since 2003, but they have recently gained a huge popularity by duping high end, or more expensive products and making their own, more affordable, version of the product. I have personally used a few of these “elf dupes” and I have to say they make amazing products for a fraction of the price! Here are some of Elf’s most popular, and obvious, dupes to high end products.
