What's better than brilliant beauty buys? Why their purse-friendly designer makeup dupes of course!
We love nothing better than snuffling out good designer makeup dupes here at Beaut HQ. There's something so satisfying about feeling like you've found a little glitch in the Matrix. Previously we've found some great budget versions of favourites from NARS, Make Up Forever and MAC.
Today, though, we've found a dupe for a Laura Mercier cult classic, a Chanel lipstick and one of Bobbi Brown's most enduringly popular products. Want to know what they are? Check out all the deets below.
Laura Mercier Undercover Pot VS Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer
Want to banish dark circles, cover up blemishes and set everything for a long lasting finish in one fell swoop? Then you'll need these clever concealer pots in your make-up bag, stat. Both the Laura Mercier (€42) and Soap & Glory kits (€13.50) offer two shades of concealer (one for under eyes and the other for on-the-spot coverage) and a special setting powder. The main difference? €28.50.
Chanel Rouge Allure Lipstick in Passion VS L.O.V Cosmetics Lip Affair Lipstick in Christina's Red
When it comes to lipstick, what often separates the premium buys from the more budget friendly ones is the feel, wear time and the packaging. But L.O.V cosmetics have taken everything into account with their brilliant Lip Affair Lipsticks (€9.99). From the luxe, magnetic-click style packaging to the rich, hydrating formula these feel a million miles removed from their price tag.
We love the nudes and pinks in the collection but Christina's Red is a dead ringer for Chanel's best selling Rouge Allure Passion (€34).
- Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick VS Revlon Photoready Insta-Fix Foundation
Stick foundations have had a bit of a resurgence over the past few years thanks to a vast improvement in formulas (no more super heavy pan stick thankfully!). But one of the most popular has always been Bobbi Brown's Skin Foundation Sticks (€38). These can be blended to a natural finish easily and are great for on-the-go top ups too.
If you're a fan of these cult classic foundations, but want to save yourself €23 then it might be time to check out Revlon Photoready Insta-Fix Foundations (€14.99). The texture and finish is a lost identical, but the main difference is in shade selection with the Bobbi Brown offering 24, whereas Revlon has nine.
