Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter vs Elf Halo Glow

Make up Dupes - Charlotte Tilbury vs Elf

The classic red carpet product that used on practically every celebrity on the red carpet is the iconic Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter and for good reason, It smoothes, blurs and leaves the most beautiful youthful glow to the skin but at £39 pounds is extemely pricey! Luckily the wonderful team at Elf have created such an amazing dupe that you literally cannot tell the difference and it’s only £14 and they have an amazing shade range.

Fenty Gloss Bomb vs Maybelline lifter Gloss

Beloved by so many, the Fenty Beauty gloss bomb is simply fabulous but a little pricey at £18 but the Maybelline Lift Gloss is liteerally half the price at £8.99 and dare I say it… I actally prefer the Maybelline one!

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat vs Revolution Pro Brigtening Concealing Wand

Beauty Dupes YSL vs Revolution Pro

Probably the most iconic under eye product to ever exist, YSL’s Touche Eclat is great at giving that wide awake glow with minimal effort but you can get a very similar result from the Revolution Pro Brightening & Tightening Concealing Wand at just £7 compared to the YSL one at a whoping £29!

Mac Ruby Woo Lipstick vs Barry M Bombshell Lipstick

Why pay £22 for a lipstick when you can have pretty much the exact shade for just £5 and i have to be honest ladies, I prefer the Barry M one!

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder vs Elf Halo Glow Setting Powder

The Laura Mercier powder is an item you will find in pretty much every make up artists kit and is used on a-list celebs worldwide but if you are looking to a cheaper alternative for everyday use then the Elf Halo glow setting powder is quite literally the next best thing and only £8 compared to the Laura Mercier one at a whopping £37!!
