As much as I love Tom Ford, I can’t afford all the Tom Ford I would want to buy. Which is pretty much everything. And that goes the same with a lot of makeup. This, of course brings us to the dupes. Dupes have come a long way, well some of them. They used to be all terrible and now only most of them are terrible. There are, however, some real dupe finds out there in the drugstores (or on Amazon), the problem is, like most things, there are so damn many and how do I know which dupes are the good dupes without getting duped in the process? Well, charmers, that’s why you have me. I go and get these dupes and I test every one of them. Like I said, some dupes are better than others. For you, however, I will only give the great ones. I feel that unless it’s a great dupe, you might as well just spend your hard earned money on the original. As always, if you have a fine, let us here it.



#1. Charlotte Tilbury HOT LIPS KIM K.W $34.00


NYX Butter Lipstick – Snow Cap $6.96

Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in Kim K. W. is hands down one of the best go to nude lip colors and I was surprised to see that NYX butter Lipstick in Snow Cap shade is basically almost the same in color and texture. Both are so creamy and comfortable, which makes them perfect for everyday use.


#2. Giorgio Armani Beauty Lip Magnet Liquid Lipstick $38


Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque $5.34


The same texture, the same formula, the same glossy finish. But one is cheaper.





We adore CHARLOTTE TILBURY FILMSTAR BRONZE & GLOW for its creamy texture (yes, powder can be creamy), for great pigmentation, for its longevity and very wearable daytime shades to give you a naturally glowing complexion. But there is almost identical dupe for 10X less of a price – W7 HOLLYWOOD BRONZE & GLOW. They are both super easy to apply and blend. Both have a sun-kissed shade of bronzer (as opposed to the awful orange tones of most bronzers). Both highlighters give you perfect glowing summer skin.


#4. Tom Ford Lip Color Matte in First Time $53.00


Maybelline New York Color Sensational Inti-Matte Nudes, Naked Coral $5.22

Tom Ford lipsticks are gorgeous, but not everyone wants to spend $53 on a lip product. So I was really excited when I found Maybelline Inti-Matte Nude lipstick in Naked Coral to be so similar to Tom Ford Lipstick in First Time shade! They are identical not only in shade but in formula which is luxurious and non-drying.


#5. Too Faced Sweet Peach Papa Don’t Peach Blush $39.89


Milani Baked Blush, Luminoso $7.59

Those blushes are extremely similar. In fact, I would say they are identical. You can’t tell the difference when they on your cheeks.


#6. Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder – Secret Brightening Powder $26.00


e.l.f. HD Undereye Concealer Setting Powder with Brush, Sheer

I’ve really been loving Laura Mercier Secret Brightning Powder for the real brightening effect that it gives. It’s great when i need to set my under eye concealer with a powder. Great news: you can buy almost the same product for $3 instead of $26 – e.l.f. HD Undereye Concealer Setting Powder is a great drugstore dupe.


#7. Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush-Peach Beach $30.00


Milani Baked Blush, Berry Amore $6.97


Too faced blush in Peach Beach is an amazing blush and it’s perfect if you want a peachy glowy look to your cheeks. I found it to be extremely similar to Milany blush in Berry Amore shade. I am really impressed how much they look alike. When you look at them side by side you cannot spot the difference. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
