The Comparison/Dupe Beauty Thread

I always see a lot of questions regarding dupes, swatches, comparisons for products that have come out.  Is it similar to such and such, is there a dupe because the item you loved is discontinued or being discontinued, etc.  I thought it would be easier to have one thread where members can ask for a dupe on a beloved product, find swatch comparisons, or side by side comparisons of the actual product to another (to see if they are similar or not). 

 

I hope this thread provides useful information for those that need it.

If you love MAC Hibiscus or YSL Extreme Coral. I think Dior 744 Diorama is a good dupe.

Comparing Nars Orgasm with Armani beauty Euphoric. Side by side pan comparison and swatch. They may look similar but the Nars one has more shimmer and gold and isn’t as smooth as the Armani one.

Re: The Comparison/Dupe Beauty Thread

Would you say the Armani wins out over the Nars? I have Orgasm in the old formula when it was much better, but I've been on the hunt for something similar that's not as chunky as the newer version of Orgasm!

Re: The Comparison/Dupe Beauty Thread

They look very similar and both gorgeous @SportyGirly125 !

Re: The Comparison/Dupe Beauty Thread

Wow!! Swatched they look so similar!! @SportyGirly125 

Re: The Comparison/Dupe Beauty Thread

Thanks for this comparison, @SportyGirly125 !  The Armani is very pretty. 😍

Re: The Comparison/Dupe Beauty Thread

Thank you for the swatches, @SportyGirly125 !  Seeing them together is an impressive difference.  I love the Rose Edit! 

Re: The Comparison/Dupe Beauty Thread
