These Dupes For Fan Favourite Products Will Save You $$$

What is a makeup dupe?

The word "dupe" is short for duplicate which basically means a similar or copy of a product. A makeup dupe is a product that has a similar formula, finish or shade.

In this article, you will find a range of drugstore dupes for cult favourite high-end products. The price of a product doesn't determine its quality so before you splurge on that $100 foundation, check out some dupes instead.

1. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation VS Loreal True Match Super-Blendable Foundation (save $85)

While critics have raved over the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, this Loreal foundation is a very close match. They both have the same glowy skin effect and have roughly the same amount of product in the bottle.

2. Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer VS Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer (save $32)

As a fan of both the Tarte Shape Tape concealer and the Revolution concealer I honestly sometimes can't tell the difference. From the formula, coverage and even the applicator, these concealers are practically identical.

3. YSL Touche Eclat Brightening Concealer VS Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer (save $52)

This YSL concealer is a favourite amongst many including celebrities like Lili Reinhart and Lucy Hale. If you want to recreate their look on a more affordable budget then this Maybelline concealer is the way to go. Tip: use a shade lighter than your skin tone for a brightening effect.

4. Beauty Blender VS Real Techniques Blending Sponge (save $13)

Some people are very specific when it comes to their beauty sponges, with many opting for the Beauty Blender as their go-to. But let's be honest, how many of us can really afford to spend $30 on a makeup sponge. Well, the next best thing is the Real Techniques sponge which is almost half the price!

5. Benefit Hoola Bronzer VS Maybelline City Bronzer (save $37)

Want a bronzer as good as Hoola but not sure what to choose? Well, look no further because the Maybelline City Bronzer is the perfect match. Not only is the shade a dupe but the Maybelline compact also comes with more product. It sounds like a win-win to me!

6. Kylie Cosmetics Kylie Lip Kit VS NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme in London (save $20)

There is no denying that ever since Kylie Jenner released Kylie Cosmetics her liquid lips have a been a staple to any makeup lovers collection. Her lip kits can be quite expensive especially for international consumers who have to consider conversion rates and shipping costs. The NYX lip cream has a very similar shade a whole bunch of other too in a variety of formulas.
