Is it REALLY a drugstore dupe for Laura Mercier Ginger?
When I bought the romand - Zero Velvet Tint, I also bought ROMAND Better Than Cheek [ROMAND X Anne of Green Gables] - 07 and I was surprised to find that it's a drugstore dupe forlaura mercier - Matte Eye Colour- Ginger. Although you can see that Laura Mercier Ginger is more of a pink shade while Romand is more orange from my arm swatch, it actually looks the same when applied on my face! Laura Mercier's powder is very compacted, doesn't easily fly and is less pigmented than Romand's, so it's very beginner friendly and you don't have to be too careful when you're applying it. It also blends easily. Romand's powder is also very soft and silky and offers a higher color payoff. Beginners need to be careful when applying it. If you're thinking about getting Laura Mercier's Ginger but don't really want to spend that much, you can go for Romand's blush 07 instead.

I Swear This Is The Best Dupe
Skin tone: fair to light My original choice Benefit Gold Rush benefit - Gold Rush Blush Price: $30 for 0.17oz/5g This blush has been popular in the past few years. I bought a full size of Gold rush, but cannot find it. So I bought a blush bar which includes some hot blushes. The one in my picture is the travel size Gold Rush. Gold rush is peachy brown tone blush. It’s not that pigmented but buildable. It is makeup beginners friendly. You will never apply too much blush, which makes your cheek too red. This shade is really useful. It's not only blush but also a bronzer. The slight brown tone can make a soft facial line. The shimmer is also slight. The best dupe Milani Baked Blush 05 Luminoso MILANI - MILANI Baked Blush Price: $7.99 for 0.12oz/3.5g This blush is a big size compared to many other blushes. Many people say this Milani baked blush can be used as an heirloom. It’s also a peachy tone blush. Compared to Benefit Gold rush, Luminoso is slightly more orange tone rather than brown tone. But when you apply it to your face, it is hard to tell which one is what. Milani blush 05 Luminoso is highly pigmentated and long-lasting. Last time, I wear it to the gym, after sweating it still looks fabulous. It’s sweatproof. One point I have to mention is the shimmer. The shimmer is exactly the same with Gold rush. So, Why not buying Milani baked blush 05 Luminoso? It’s so affordable. Only 7.99, you will get a big size high-quality blush. It even comes with a brush in its case. (But the brush is not that good I have to admit).
