THE DUPE THREAD!

A place to help each other find dupes or color match. Smiley Happy

 

I often find myself looking up products that I wish I could find a dupe for or seeing something and trying to match the color. Thought this be the best place to ask Smiley Wink

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

Anyone know a dupe for LA Splash Honey Blonde? Harder to find in Canada, although I think I can purchase but afraid I might not like the product.

 

ETA: A 90's type brown that matches the color in the swatch below...

Hi veronika23,

 

Are you a KVD fan?! You might like the Ciate London Liquid Velvet™ - Moisturizing Matte Liquid Lipsticks as well. 

 

Best,

Mali

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

Thanks I'll take a look!

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

so i saw a swatch of this on an arm and it looked nothing like this, a picture of another girl wearing it and also more on the orange. the first swatch reminded me of giorgio armani 200 

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

also mac photo

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

Thanks I'll look it up Smiley Happy

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

This looks a lot like an LE NARS lipstick they released last spring - or at least how the color looked on me.

 

I'll have to get back to you on the name of it; Liguria maybe?

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

Cool. Thx Smiley Happy

 

ETA: That is the name, looking it up now. Seems close! Looking for a yellow/brown 90's type of color.

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

Waht about the new Colourpop Ultra Satin in Tansy? This picture is @noirojos, I am "friends" with her on IG. This is lighter on her, but on fairer skin, it looks like Tansy might be similar.

 

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

Thanks. Hoping to find a shade from a brand I can get without crazy shipping lol

 

 

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

I'm slightly addicted to looking at swatch comparisons/dupes on Instagram. 🙈

 

Does anyone know of any good accounts besides @dupethat? I'd prefer suggestions for accounts primarily focused on swatch photos. 

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

angelamarietanner does tons of dupes!

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

ooo that's a good one! Thank you!

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

@vanedb posts a lot of dupes, but her page isn't solely swatches. Maybe check her out?

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

Good suggestion! Followed... Smiley Happy

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

I'm looking for a dupe for Rezy by liplandcosmetics. I thought of Mac Runway Hit or Kinda Sexy but I couldn't find any dupes online. Smiley Happy

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

I can't even seem to find the shade you are looking for online...

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

it was a collaboration with Amrezy from IG. I'm sure Colourpop has something really similar.

 

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

 Just wanted to drop by and say what a great idea for a  thread!

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

Okay, this is probably a bust but I thought I'd try anyway, because I need to save $$ (just officially applied for grad school, and if I get accepted, I'll need to starting saving hard.)

 

I recently bought the mini size in Benefit's POREfessional Face Primer, and I love it. I didn't expect to, but I wanted to see what the big deal was, and I get it. I really do, but the full size is $31 and for a primer, that just hurts.

 

SO. Is there a dupe for it? Preferably a dupe I can buy at Walgreens or Walmart?

 

Or just drug store primers that have the same balmy feel, basically.

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

It's been a long time since I've used Porefessional so I can't tell you exactly how similar they are, but I would suggest the L'Oreal Magic Perfecting Base primer.  It comes in a jar, which is kind of annoying but I find that it's a good primer.  It could get thick, so you usually only need a little but it makes my face feel silky smooth and it blurs everything pretty well.  It's probably worth a shot!!

 

 

and good luck with grad school!!

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

I'll look into this, thanks!!

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

Hi @PaiigeeI came upon this post. I know it’s a bit old but was wondering, if you would like, I can send you all the deluxe size/samples of the Porefessionals that I have received in past GWP. I have no use for them, need nothing in return. Send me a PM.

Re: THE DUPE THREAD!

I'm looking for a DUPE for Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in Taupe. Any more affordable options? Or any dupes in an eyeshadow palette from another brand? Any help would be awesome, thanks!
