I think the cheapest, best dupe for this product would be the NYC Big Bold Angel Lash Mascara. It's in a purple tube. The wand is amazing. It gives your lashes volume, but also is very good at not clumping. I used to get it at Target, but now I order it off Amazon Prime for $5. Can't beat the price and I always get complimented on my lashes. I think layering these two mascara's are great, but alone this mascara can do wonders!!
