SPLURGE OR STEAL: MAKEUP

July 18, 2014 Charlotte Cho
Korean Makeup Edition

One of the things I love most about Korean beauty products is that you can often find amazing, high quality alternatives (or as the blog world loves to call them: dupes) for high-end name brands. I like to consider myself a savvy shopper and I love sharing my finds with friends—here's a list of my fave steals.

$34                                                                                 $15

I have always been pretty terrible with applying liquid eyeliner—but that was only until I stumbled upon felt tip pen liners. The marker-like tips offer so much more control than the traditional flimsy liquid brush. I love the Clio Kill Black pen because it's a deep, intense black that stays put all day.

Benefit Benetint                                        Tony Moly Delight Tony Tint
$30                                                                             $10

Intense, brilliant lip stain lovers, the Tony Moly Delight Tony Tint ($10) is for you. Don't let the name fool you: This product is most definitely stain that doesn't budge a centimeter (even through all those morning lattes). If you like lighter stains (especially one that works on the cheeks), the Benefit Benetint is a reliable pick.
