Drugstore Makeup As Good As High End?

Hey Beauties!

Today we are talking about more affordable options - dupes! I'm going to show you some low-priced products which work the same as highly-priced high end makeup.

Firstly, I have some lip product dupes.
The first one is this Makeup Revolution lipstick in a shade Rebel With a Cause. The lipstick has a satin finish and it's a dark pinky purple shade - the same as Calvin Klein Delicious Luxury Creme Lipstick in Desire. Makeup Revolution has a tiny bit more purple in it so CK one looks a little bit more rosy, but you cannot really tell once it's on the lips. And the Makeup Revolution one is only 1£! (It is also said to be a dupe for MAC lipstick in the shade Rebel (how obvious), but I don't have this one, so I can't insert swatches). CK Lipstick is 8£ on Amazon.co.uk

Other lip product dupe is strickly a colour dupe. Catrice Colour Infusion Longlasting Lipstain in the shade Red & The City is a dupe for Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Balm in the shade Roomiest Rose (6). These are burgundy reds. Althouth colours are veery similar, formulas are not. Catrice lip product is a lipstain, which makes it more matte and longlasting, but it's quite drying on the lips. I don't recommend this if you have chapped or sensitive lips and the Clinique is actually moisturizing itself as it's a balm, however, it's quite pricy, so if you want to save some money you can check out the Catrice one. Catrice Longlasting Lipstain: 2£. Clinique Chubby Stick: 17£. (The one in the photo is a mini one).

The next dupe is 10 times cheaper than the high end product! That's a price difference! It's E.L.F. Tinted Moisturizer and it's a dupe for Artistry Tinted Moisturizer. These have similar formulas, the Artistry one is a tiny bit lighter on the skin but they both look the same applied. E.L.F. Tinted Moisturizer in the shade Ivory is similar to Artistry Tinted Moisturizer in Tint 2. E.L.F. Tinted Moisturizer: 3$ (around 2£). Artistry Tinted Moisturizer: 20£.

The last dupe is Makeup Revolution Iconic 1 for Urban Decay Naked palette. Makeup Revolution actually does more dupes (they have ones for UD Naked 2 and Naked 3 as well), where they make identical shades! The best thing about this is that the quality is the same as well! Makeup Revolution eyeshadows wear very nicely and they're longlasting. I'm sorry, but I don't have UD Naked anymore, so I can't insert picture as I don't want to use anyone elses, but here a link for the palette: http://www.urbandecay.co.uk/naked/naked-palettes/naked-palette. Makeup Revolution Iconic 1: 4£. Urban Decay Naked palette: 38£.

That's it for todays post. I really recommend trying these products if you wanted to get the more expensive option, but couldn't afford it! Please comment down below if you have anything to say! Maybe you have found your own dupes? Share them with everyone!
