Another day, another influencer makeup drop. This time, it's none other than YouTube beauty superstar Jeffree Star, who for the last two weeks has been teasing his Blue Blood palette, filled with every shade of blue Cinderella could ever dream of.
However, call me crazy, but it will be a cold day in hell before I fill my cart and spend my hard-earned money on anything with Star's name on it. But that's OK; I can still take part in the trend with a daring, blue eye look created with other products. And for those out there who share the same sentiment, we've put together a list of 5 dupes that come with a smaller price tag and much less guilt. This is our kind of blue blood.
