Looking for some drugstore makeup dupes? I’m testing dupes for popular items like the It Cosmetics CC Cream, Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk lipstick, and more! Come see if I found a good dupe!
You all know I love finding a good makeup dupe. It makes me giddy to find drugstore makeup products that perform just as great as their high end counterparts. I’m a huge believer in mixing high and low. The drugstore is full of amazing quality products and I never sleep on in. Neither should you!
Today we’re going to be testing some popular high end makeup against some drugstore dupes. I’m also doing a 6 hour wear test with these products on and giving you my thoughts after that.
Makeup Dupes Tested – 5 Popular High End Products and Drugstore Dupes
Watch the video to see a full demo, comparison and 6-hour wear test! What do you guys think after watching the video? Did I find some good ones? Now let’s break down each product!
You’ll have to watch the video to get the full explanation, demo, and wear test (not giving it all away here in the text). But, here are the products and prices broken down if you’re interested! You can click on any of the below images and it will take you straight to the products!
It Cosmetics CC Cream Dupe
The It Cosmetics CC Cream is a cult favorite product among so many people, and has been extremely hard to dupe! What I love most about it is that it is full coverage, has great ingredients, and has an SPF of 50. There wasn’t anything quite like it on the market as far as coverage and SPF, until this dupe went under my radar. You’ll see there are some differences in the ingredients and the consistency, but you’d be surprised how the coverage is compared to the CC cream! I will say, the oil-free matte version of the CC Cream is still my favorite and performs even better (and I have yet to find a dupe).
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder Dupe
Ever since I got my hands on the Charlotte Tilbury Powder, it was love at first use. It’s a beautiful, finely milled powder that truly makes the skin look airbrushed. It looks amazing on the skin no matter how it’s applied – whether with a damp beauty blender or a brush! I accidentally stumbled upon this dupe and was pleasantly surprised how nearly identical it is.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder Dupe
I’ve been using the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders for years. They are gorgeous finishing powders to use on the skin. I like to use them when my face is looking a little flat and dull – they bring the skin to life and give it a little glow without them looking too shimmery or glittery. I started using this dupe a few months for the same use and it dawned on me that it reminded me so much of the Hourglass powders.
Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lipstick Dupe
I’m pretty sure I’m shook the most by this drugstore dupe. The Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lipstick is one of the most beautiful and flattering lipsticks I own. It is loved by so many people (seriously a cult favorite!) and is such a unique shade. It’s pretty hard to dupe! I’ve been trying to for the last few months, but finally grabbed this dupe and knew immediately we had a winner. You’ll see in the video that the formula is slightly different but the shade is dead on!
Fenty Gloss Bomb Dupe
I’ve been obsessed with the Fenty Gloss Bomb in Fenty Glow for months. I love the formula, I love how flattering it is over my neutral lipsticks, I love how juicy and glossy it is, and I love how it’s very comfortable to wear. It’s truly a beautiful product! I found this dupe and was pleasantly surprised! The shade is not exact (the Fenty gloss is a little more of a darker pigment), but the shine, luminous particles, and how it looks is nearly identical.
