10 Beauty Dupes that Won’t Break the Bank

Don’t worry, we’ve all done it– spent a little too much on a high-end beauty product that probably made you think “did I really just spend that much?” While it’s nice to splurge on an occasional product you truly love, it’s not always realistic to have a full collection of high-end products, especially if you’re a broke college student like me. But the good news is, today’s technology makes it super easy to find the best reviews and secrets to the finest dupes on the market. The app Tik Tok is one of the best places to find influencers to compare high-end products to their cheaper counterpart, letting you in on the best secrets. I have gathered 10 of the best dupes reviewed on TikTok, from makeup, to perfume, to skincare that people swear are exact matches. Say goodbye to breaking the bank–I suggest you run to get your hands on these before they sell out.

  1. Maybelline Lifter Gloss ($6.99) for Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb ($20.00)

    VS     

The Maybelline Lifter Gloss is a staple that is always in my bag. It’s a perfect gloss that makes your lips look full, hydrated, and super glowy. It comes in a variety of shades that you can find at Target, or pretty much any drugstore and is a fraction of the price of the Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb.

  1. CoverGirl Skin Milk Foundation ($9.99) for Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter ($44)

  VS 

Another staple in my makeup routine is the CoverGirl Skin Milk Foundation. This is a super lightweight foundation with a dewy finish that makes your skin look hydrated and healthy. This is only $9.99 and can be found pretty much anywhere. It’s also vegan and cruelty-free which is always good to look for when buying products.

  1. OGX Extra Creamy + Coconut Miracle Lotion ($6.99) for Sol De Janerio Brazilian Bum Bum Cream ($45)

  VS 

If you’ve smelt the Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, you know that the scent transforms you to feeling like you have been on the beach all day in Cabo, salty hair, and got the most perfect tan. While it is a nice staple to have, the OGX Extra Creamy + Coconut Miracle Lotion can do just the trick for only $6.99.

  1. Makeup Revolution Eye Bright Concealer ($10) for the Charlotte Tilbury Contour Wand ($38)

  VS

Influencers have been getting creative and using the Makeup Revolution Eye Bright Concealer for contouring. This is said to be just like the Charlotte Tilbury Contour Wand, with the consistency and finish being exact.

  1. L’Oreal Paris Air Volume Mascara ($10.99) for Benefit They’re Real! Mascara ($26)

  VS 

You cannot tell the difference between these two products–– the L’Oreal Air Volume Mascara is lightweight, so you can apply many layers without it getting clumpy. Just like the Benefit Mascara, your lashes will be long and voluminous. 

  1. E.l.f. Cosmetics Putty Blush ($6) for Rare Beauty Cream Blush ($21)

  VS 

Cream blush is becoming all the rage these days because it helps to give you that dewy look. The E.l.f. Cosmetics Putty Blush blends in just as nicely as the Rare Beauty Cream Blush and comes in several shades to go with any skin tone. 

  1. NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer ($16.99) for Guerlain L’or Radiance Concentrate With Pure Gold ($74)

  VS 

The NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer has been all over TikTok and is said to be even more hydrating and glowy than the Guerlain L’or Radiance Concentrate, which retails at $74. The NYX product even has gold specs and gives your face a perfect base to do your makeup.

  1. L’Oreal Infallible Concealer ($13.49) for Dermablend Cover Care Concealer ($28) 

VS 

Sometimes it’s hard to find a full coverage concealer that isn’t too thick or cakey, but this dupe blends perfectly into your skin. It is lightweight but also does the job of covering any dark circles or imperfections. 

  1. Revolution Highlight Reloaded ($7) for Benefit Cosmetics Dandelion Twinkle Soft Highlighter ($30)

  VS 

If you are trying not to spend $30 for a highlighter, look no further than the Revolution Highlight Reloaded, which is a match for the Benefit Cosmetics product. Being only $7, you cannot pass up the opportunity for that perfect shine.

  1. Zara Red Temptation ($25) for Maison Francis Baccarat Rouge 540 Eau de Parfum ($325)

  VS 

Last but not least, my absolute favorite dupe. If you haven’t heard yet, the Baccarat Rouge 540 perfume is the best smelling perfume of all time. It’s sweet, sexy, soft and you are sure to get compliments on the scent. The only downside is that it retails at $325. However, Zara came out with Red Temptation which when wearing, cannot be distinguished from the Maison Francis scent.
