We all love makeup. Everyone is a makeup artist these days. There are loads of makeup products available in the market. Online shopping has made it easier to reach international brands too. But for some reasons if it is not possible for you to buy high end cosmetics all the time but also you don’t wanna compromise on the quality then don’t you worry girl, I’ve got you covered. Here are the top 10 makeup dupes for you. This will help you save a lot of money without compromising on the product quality. You can get them online on Nykaa.
A good makeup look should start with a good primer so that it doesn’t look cakey, stays on place and lasts longer than normal. This one is not hard to guess though as it has been around for quite a long time. Yes, I’m talking about Miss Claire Studio Perfect Professional Makeup Primer (clear variant) Now this product is an exact dupe for NYX Professional Makeup Studio Perfect Primer. The packaging, consistency, fragrance are similar for these two except for the price. The NYX primer retails for Rs.1325 while the Miss Claire Primer retails for Rs. 595 only. You can get it at an even more discounted price online.
Girls! MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation has a dupe. The Ace Of Face Foundation Stick by Sugar Cosmetics does the similar job as the MAC one. The formula is not similar though but they work similarly, the coverage and staying power is insane. Both of them give medium to full coverage, blur out large pores and fine lines, do not settle into creases, gives you a photo ready look (they make your skin look great in pictures) for full 24 hours plus the sugar foundation stick comes with a kabuki brush. The price difference is quite big for these two. The Mac foundation is priced at Rs.2500 and the Sugar foundation is at Rs.999 only. Wink Wink !!👀👀
3. Beauty Blending Sponge
I know you’ll need a blending tool to blend out your foundation. Here’s the dupe for the Iconic Makeup Sponge. It’s the PAC Beauty Blender Sponge. The prices are US$20 for the former and Rs.485 for the latter.
4. Eye Shadow
Here is a great dupe for the creative soul. A whole eye shadow palette with the most basic shades. Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette – Iconic 2 has the similar shades as Maybelline New York The Nudes Eye Shadow Palette. These two palettes are a must have for a makeup junkie as they have the most basic colours like the matte brown, black or the shimmery gold, bronze and copper. The retail prices are Rs.1050 and Rs.899 respectively.
Wet n Wild MegaGlo Contouring Palette – Dulce De Leche is the perfect low price dupe for the L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro Contour Palette – 815 Deep. Both of them contain similar shades. The L’Oreal one comes with an applicator brush though. Formula wise they are same, they work quite similarly and last for a long time. These two retail for Rs.499 and Rs.1300 respectively.
Blush is must to get that rosy glow on your cheeks. Bobbi Brown Blush in the shade Slopes and Milani Rose Powder Blush – 01 Romantic Rose have the similar colours, powder formula. The staying power is good for the Milani Blush. These are priced at Rs.2850 and Rs.1300.
For highlighters I have picked Milani Strobelight Instant Glow Powder – 03 Sunglow which gives similar radiant illumination as Maybelline New York Face Studio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter – Molten Gold. Despite the price difference the Maybelline highlighter stays put very well and does the exact same job. The best thing is these are buildable so layer on if you want that blinding glow. Price is Rs. 1325 for the former and Rs.550 for the later.
8. Lip Liner
This is really hard to decide as there are loads of options available, but this little thing from NYKAA is doing an amazing job. So yes, Huda Beauty Lip Contour pencils can be replaced with the Nykaa Lips Don’t Lie lip liners. Nykaa has similar colours available ranging from reds to pinks to nudes, these are water and transfer proof, matte finish and they last all day long. These lip liners retail for Rs.1500 and Rs.350 only.
Mac Ruby Woo and Milani Color Statement Moisture Matte Lipstick – 68 Matte Iconic are similar colour in different containers. Unlike Ruby Woo the Matte Iconic one has a moisturizing formula that keep lips hydrated but gives matte finish. These two retail for Rs.1500 and Rs.770 respectively.
10. Makeup Fixing Spray
To make sure your makeup stays on place a makeup fixer spray comes in handy. MAC Prep + Prime Fix + Mattifying Mist is a high end setting spray whereas PAC Prime Setting Spray is an affordable option. Both of these can be used prior to applying makeup to prime the face and as a finishing spray to lock the makeup in place. They are priced at Rs.1650 and Rs.796 respectively.
