High End Make Up Dupes!

Hi Guys,

I thought I'd do a bit of a different post today and see what dupes I have in my make up collection, I might do a few of these little posts over time, today I've got a few MAC dupes I found!

Some of the dupes are more colour wise and some just texture and similarity wise as I don't have everything in the same shade but they're still dupes of each other.

Clinique vs MUA
Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Hefty Hibiscus is very similar to the MUA Power Pout in Runway, packaging wise and shade wise, plus with a £14 difference they are surprisingly similar! I have to admit the Clinique one just wins of pigmentation and lasting power but I find the Power Pout's are just a teeny bit more hydrating!


Urban Decay vs ELF
I have to admit I much prefer the ELF Eyelid Primer over the Urban Decay Primer Potion, The ELF one on me lasts a lot longer and is saving me which is insane! I do prefer the packaging of the Urban Decay ones but the products in side are identical!

Red Shadows are very hard to find on the drug store market and during this time of year MAC Cranberry is a firm blogger favourite, I think I've found a very close dupe for a fraction of the price. Aka MUA Single Shadow in Shade 25 Pearl. I've only just bought Cranberry due to having the MUA Shade, Cranberry doesn't cause as much drop down and is slightly darker but for a pound you cant really argue with MUA.

Make Up Forever  vs Rimmel
Make Up Forever is notoriously hard to find over here in the UK and when you do track it down it is very expensive! So I was very happy when I realised the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Eyeliner in Bronze is a dupe for the MUFA Aqua Eyes Waterproof Pencil in 2L. I cant find either of them lasting for a certain amount of time over the other. So if your in the UK or just don't fancy forking out £13.50 for the MUFA one, Rimmel is the place to go!

Chanel vs ELF
I love the Chanel Illusion D'Ombre Cream Eye shadow's  My purse however does not. So when I picked up the E.L.F Long Lasting Lustrous Eye shadows I was very intrigued! As looks wise these seem very similar, yes the Chanel one does feel a lot more smooth and luxurious but these E.L.F ones are pretty amazing themselves and pack a punch of pigment!

MAC vs Revlon
My last dupe is for one of my all time favourite lipsticks, MAC's Girl About Town! Its a very bright fuchsia toned pink and the Revlon Lip Butter in Lollipop gives it a run for its money! The MAC one is more pigmented as its a lipstick and not a butter, But saying that the Lip Butters are very pigmented, more moisturising and practically the same shade, Plus you could build up the layers of it and probably make it as intense as girl about town if you wanted to!

(Swatches: Left to Right - MUA Shade 25, MAC Cranberry, MUA Runway, Clinique Heftiest Hibiscus, Rimmel Bronze, MUFA 2L, Revlon Lollipop and MAC Girl About Town)

I hope you've enjoyed this post, I tried to keep the extremely obvious dupes out and I do know of a few others I just don't have their high end rivals! But maybe I'll do another one of these posts with a few more in the future if you've liked this!
