beauty budget: nars turkish delight dupes

I'm a huge fan of NARS Cosmetics. I think their blushes are phenomenal {Orgasm, Douceur, and Dolce Vita are my favorites}, their bronzers are perfect {I wear Laguna}, and their eyeliners are the best out there.

But I'm just not a huge fan of their lip gloss. Even though Turkish Delight is a very pretty and popular color, I can't bring myself to jump on the bandwagon. I think their glosses have this weird plastic smell that hits you right as you open the tube and lingers on your lips. So while I love the range of colors, I can't justify spending the money on them.

Luckily, I've found other lip glosses that are pretty similar and come at a lower price point.

The pictures aren't really true to their color because when you see them in person, these two drugstore picks are much more similar than they look. Baby Blossom from L'Oreal is probably the closet of the two since NARS is a bit pinker than Revlon, but both are worth a try. I think the quality, finish, and texture are all extremely comparable. At just a third of the price {will vary depending on where you buy}, you'd be saving yourself quite a bit of money. 

And who doesn't love that?
