The Best Makeup Dupes For Your Fave High End Products
We all aspire to have that dream makeup collection, but with price increases and an abundance of products to buy, it makes this fantasy hard to live out.
Lately, our top drugstore brands have been dropping products that have been hitting a little too close to home, and by too close we mean that these makeup dupes have been duping!
So, without further ado, here’s our top five makeup dupes for all your favourite high-end brands.
L’Oréal Paris – Infallible 24hr Freshwear Liquid Foundation €14.99
Armani Luminous Silk Foundation €52.00
The Armani luminous silk foundation is renowned for leaving your face with a flawless, glowy and natural finish. Its formula is to die for, but the price is…not so enticing.
Enter the L’Oréal, Infallible 24hr Liquid foundation; long-lasting, nourishing, and seamless…the perfect dupe for our Armani favourite. We are obsessed!
E.l.f – Halo Glow Liquid Filter €15.00
Charlotte Tilbury – Hollywood Flawless Filter €49.00
The iconic Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter can be found in almost everyone’s makeup bag. It acts as a base and can blur and even out the skin tone, which is why some people use it as a light-wear foundation.
The launch of the viral Elf Halo Glow Liquid Filter was a complete game-changer for our flawless filter fans. The similarity between the two is incomparable, and some would even say that it has more coverage.
With that price tag… it would be rude not to give it a try!
Morphe Colour Pencil – Sweet Tea €6.00
M.A.C Lip Pencil Lip Liner – Stripdown €24.00
M.A.C Stripdown, the god of all lipliners. It’s giving Alexa Demie’s Maddy from season two of Euphoria.
We all strive to find the perfect nude and with this heavenly pencil…M.A.C. has nailed it. But with greatness comes responsibility, and these lipliners tend to have a mind of their own.
Luckily, we have discovered its Morphe twin and for a fraction of the price; Morphe Colour pencil in Sweet Tea. Now you won’t feel so bad when you lose your little friend on your next night out!
E.l.f Halo Glow Setting Powder €9.00
Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder €48.50
The holy grail of all setting powders. This Laura Mercier gold dust is a godsend, loved by literally everyone who uses it.
If you’re saving up to treat yourself, E.L.F’s setting powder can tide you by in the meantime! It’s super affordable, and has a similar finish to the Laura Mercier – though we can’t lie, it’s a tough one to come close to!
Catrice – Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer €4.50
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer €33.00
The dupe of all dupes and a personal fave!
The Nars radiant creamy concealer is renowned for hiding dark circles and leaving a long-lasting, matte finish whilst adding moisture to the skin; but for such a tiny bottle, it can set you back quite a bit.
If you’re in search of this kind of coverage face but at a lower cost, then the Catrice Liquid Camouflage concealer is your new best friend! We’ve witnessed first-hand the magical formula of this secret Nars dupe.
