I got a makeup dupe from Target for just $6 – it’s ‘amazing’ and 80% cheaper than the original at Sephora

TARGET has a secret makeup dupe just as good as a Sephora original and at a fraction of the price, a TikToker has shared.

Jacquelyn Fricke, otherwise known as TheShoppingBestie on the app, describes herself as “your budget-friendly bestie who finds dupes, clothing, and lifestyle needs.”

Jacquelyn told her more than 160,000 followers about a new dupe she discovered, and this one could be hiding at your local Target.

The dupe is 80 percent cheaper than the name brand: Sephora’s Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara, which has a price tag of $28 and a 4.2-star website rating.

When Jacquelyn discovered an alternative, the ELF Lash ‘N Roll Mascara, priced at $6 at Target, she wondered if it could live up to its predecessor.

“Everyone said ELF made an exact dupe for Benefit’s Roller Lash Mascara,” the TikToker said.

“It’s only $6 so you know we had to put it to the test.”

Upon opening it, she said: “The wand is giving skinny vibes.”

When it came down to the moment of truth, Jacquelyn was noticeably impressed.

“It is starting to give a large and full baby,” she said.

While Jacquelyn initially worried the dupe didn’t curl as well, she found after some time the mascara performed perfectly.

“It was too stunned to speak,” Jacquelyn said. “This is amazing.”

Altogether, Jacquelyn and other shoppers can save 80 percent by purchasing the Sephora dupe, which has a $6 price tag compared to the less affordable $28 Sephora alternative.


There are a few surefire strategies to save the next time you find yourself on a Target run.

On Tuesday, you should expect bargains for women’s clothing, pet products, and groceries.

Wednesday follows with men’s clothing, health and beauty products, diapers, lawn and garden items, and furniture.

Staff then put some yellow clearance stickers on housewares, lingerie, shoes, toys, sporting goods, home decor, and luggage on Thursdays.
