Even the most devoted makeup gurus have paused when they鈥檙e about to make a hefty purchase on their fave product. Sure, NARS concealers are great, but are they really worth the $20+ pricetag when $1 concealers exist at your local CVS? Luckily, we have beauty vlogger ItsMyRayeRaye to answer that question for us.

Last Thursday, Raye posted a video that鈥檚 steadily going viral 鈥 probably because it鈥檚 totally fascinating. The video breaks down every single step of Raye鈥檚 makeup routine, but in a new way 鈥 using the higher-end products on the left side of her face and the drugstore alternatives on the right.

Raye compares products like Lanc么me vs. Loreal, Mac vs. Colourpop, and Jane Iredale vs. Elf, and it鈥檚 pretty wild to watch.

But perhaps the wildest part of all? At the end of the video, you can鈥檛 tell the difference whatsoever. She looks equally perfect on both sides, thus proving that, when used right, drugstore products can be great swaps on a budget.

Of course, the price tag and the look aren鈥檛 the only factors to consider when purchasing makeup 鈥 you may just prefer the feel of Glossier鈥檚 luxe highlighters or the creamy texture of NARS lipstick. When it comes to makeup splurging, you do you 鈥 but it鈥檚 comforting to know that, in a pinch, you can head over to your local drugstore for a makeup revamp.
