Whether you've been noodling on buying a luxe firming moisturizer or treating yourself to an oh-so-comfy pair of celeb-approved UGGs, we understand the hesitation. Yes, brands like Crème de La Mer, Charlotte Tilbury, and UGG offer premium goods, but those products often come at higher price points.

If you've been holding off on treating yourself to luxe clothing or skin care, you're in luck because there are look-a-likes for nearly all of your favorites that won't break your budget (they're just like the real thing!). To make shopping easier, we did the due diligence and hunted down dupes for all things expensive, be it $380 moisturizers for only $28 to $100 UGG slippers for half the price. And we must have done a good job, because our readers couldn't stop shopping them!

Scroll down to shop the dupes that our readers just couldn't get enough of this year.
