A few weeks back I blogged about mytop 10 beauty must haves under £10 and whilst looking through my makeup collection I’ve started to notice just how many amazing high street dupes their are for high end products, and I’m talking practically the same product for a fraction of the price! I’m going to do a part 2 of this post as I’d found some amazing dupes for blushers, liners, lipsticks, brow gels etc so keep an eye out for that but for now, here are my top dupes…
I’ve been using the Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight and contour sticks daily since I got them as they are so quick and easy to use with great results. This chubby stick is perfect for highlighting along cheek/brow bones and it’s definitely a staple in my everyday makeup bag. However, for just under a third of the price the SEVENTEEN Skin Wow Primer is a great alternative. It can actually also be used as a Primer, so applied as a base before your foundation for an all over glow – perfect for the summer months or just dab it on normally as you would a highlighter.
The Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact is one of the prettiest products I own, the shimmer, shades and packaging scream luxe and it’s a product I use in the summer months when I have a tan. Recently whilst browsing Boots I found this amazing dupe from SEVENTEENfor a quarter of the price, the shades aren’t quite as shimmery but the similarities are incredible for the price!
I’m actually wearing the Clarins Everlasting Foundationtoday and have been loving it lately, it really does last incredibly well all day! Whilst trialling some foundations recently I found that the Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundationwas a great dupe for this product as it also has great staying power and they offer a wide range of shades too!
The Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara is one of my go-to mascaras as it really volumize my lashes but also curls them too (definitely a great night out option for impact lashes!). For a more wearable daytime mascara I’ve been reaching for the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascarawhich also offers amazing volume and a very similar outcome for less than half the price.
TheUrban Decay Naked 3 Paletteis one of my favourite palettes as I just love the pinky/nude shades it contains – and the shimmers are beautiful too! I use it a lot and before it started to run out rapidly I decided to hunt down a cheaper alternative. When the Makeup Revolution Icon 3 Palette was released it was dubbed the ‘UD Naked 3 Palette dupe’ by many beauty bloggers and it is an amazing alternative for just £4!
Lately I’ve been wearing the Bobbi Brown Art Stick (Hot Orange)so much and it’s definitely a new favourite shade for me by a long shot! The formula is lovely and the colour is super pigmented and I found it lasted all day! I recently spotted theMaybelline Colour Drama Lipstick (Fab Orange)the other day and couldn’t believe the similarities! I had to pick it up as my affordable back up for when my Bobbi Brown one runs out – if you’re not looking to splash out then I’d 100% recommend the Maybelline one as it’s a great product!
