If you’ve never heard of the drugstore makeup brand e.l.f, you’re welcome. I’m about to open your eyes to the cheapest and best beauty haul of your life. E.l.f. boasts a comprehensive line of makeup and skincare products that are almost all under five dollars. But the thing about e.l.f. is that a lot of their products are identical (we call ’em dupes) to high-end luxury makeup products for a fraction of the price. See for yourself.
