It's dupe time! And this week we've found a copycat of one of Bobbi Brown's iconic products.
Finding a good dupe is like solving a crossword puzzle to us here at Beaut HQ. It gives us a feeling of deep satisfaction, with a smidgen of smug thrown in for good measure. This week's dupe is an almost-twin of the cult classic Rouge Pot by Bobbi Brown and comes courtesy of Glossier.
The multi award-winning Rouge pots can be found in makeup bags across the world. But at €28 each, they ain't cheap. To clarify though, we have no problem paying for products that are good quality. But it is nice to find a dupe that's pretty much the same, and also saves some cash!

Now that Glossier are shipping to Ireland, we're able to finally tell you all about the goodies they have in their stable. Included in that stable, are the Cloud Paints (€18). Much like the BB Rouge Pots, these give skin a natural flush of colour that looks healthy and glowing. And as a dupe, they work beautifully.
Glossier Cloud Paint
The soft, gel-cream texture is a dream to work with and blends effortlessly. It has a buildable formula, which is code for "hard to get wrong" meaning you won't find yourself looking like Aunt Sally unless you really lash it on. As they say, "If you can finger paint, you can Cloud Paint".
There are six shades to choose from in the Cloud Paints, whereas there are seven in the Bobbi Brown Collection. So not a huge difference there, then. Both brands offer wearable shades designed to suit different skin tones. The coral and pinks tones are especially similar.
Have you tried the Cloud Paints yet? Or is Bobbi Brown your go to?
