Dupes: Drugstore Week

For the first post of Drugstore week I thought I would do another dupes post. So after going through my makeup collection I've found some drugstore products that are very similar to some of my favourite high end items.

e.l.f Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder in St. Lucia vs. Nars Laguna Bronzer and Deep Throat Blush
This is a pretty well established dupe already. Even down to the packaging, this duo is supposed to be similar to Nars. I think the blush in this palette is often considered to be a dupe for Nars Orgasm but when I swatched them I found Orgasm to be a much deeper shade of pink. The e.l.f blush is a little bit chunky and has glitter but the overall tone of pink is the same as Deep Throat. The bronzer is also extremely similar to Laguna, just a little bit darker.

NYX Lip Liner in Nude vs. Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk
While the formulation of these two lip liners are very different the shades are the same. The Charlotte Tilbury lasts hours longer and is a little bit more drying compared to the NYX liner but for a 5th of the price it's a good dupe.

ByTerry Ombre Blackstar in Misty Rock vs. Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow in 38
The ByTerry Ombre Blackstar eyshadow sticks are very expensive so it's exciting to be able to find a decent dupe. Both eyeshadow sticks can be blended out nicely but once they set, they won't budge for hours. The shades are also similar. The ByTerry one is more shimmery and a bit lighter in colour but the Kiko stick gives a very similar effect for a much smaller price tag.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer vs. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer
These concealers are very similar in that they are very creamy and high coverage. Nars comes with a high price tag so to find something similar in the drugstore is nice. I personally like the Nars concealer a little better because I find it's a little thicker consistency but the Maybelline concealer is amazing as well.

Clinique Chubby Stick in Super Strawberry vs. Revlon Kissable Balm Stain in Honey
Back when these came out there were a lot of reviews comparing the two. Both are a similar idea with similar packaging. This is one of the only dupes where I really prefer the drugstore dupe much better as the Revlon option is more of a stain so it lasts longer. It has a minty smell which I don't mind however the writing has rubbed off the packaging which is annoying. These particular colours are similar although the Clinique Chubby Stick is a little darker pink.
