Essence VS. Laura mercier, dupe or not?
Hi,guys, I gonna compare 2 hghlighters that are raved about on Youtube. laura mercier - Matte Radiance Baked Powder Compact and essence - Pure Nude Highlighter,which is said to be a dupe of LM 💛Volume Laura Mercier 7.5g and Essence 6.5g are both pretty large sizes. 💛Powder Both pressed powders are pretty loose and so fly everywhere easily, but they can also be picked up easily using a brush. 💛Shade Color Laura Mercier is a champagne pink gold shade, which is lighter compared to Essences' beige gold shade. Both shades do not offer high color payoff, so there is not much difference between the two. 💛Makeup effect They give a subtle watery shimmer as if the skin is glowing from within, so it's suitable for an everyday work look. Summary Overall, Essence is not that different from Laura Mercier, and both are highlighters suitable for beginners.

$27 lip oil vs $16 💋💦
Listen, I really really like the Kosas - Wet Lip Oil Gloss but, I think it is super pricey for what it is. The packaging is gorgeous, the product is really nice, I personally really like the scent, but $27 for 4.2 grams is 😬 But I think I found something super similar and at a more reasonable price point. The CALEY COSMETICS - BEACHY KISS NATURAL LIP GLOSS WITH PROBIOTICS is such a nice product and I think it’s a pretty good dupe for the Kosas lip oil in formula, texture, wear and look. They both have a similar ingredient list with ingredients like castor seed oil, sunflower seed oil, rice bran extract and the Caley lip oil (gloss) is also formulated with probiotics to help strengthen the skin’s natural barrier which is amazing! I’m wearing the Kosas lip oil in shade jellyfish on my top lip and Caley lip gloss in the shade mango mojito on my bottom lip, literally indistinguishable. Only thing that sucks (for me) it’s the applicator, it’s so small on both products, you need to go in like three times to get good application. The Caley lip oil is $16 for 9 grams which is definitely a lot more worth it in my opinion 😋

DUPE SWATCHES | Dior Lip oil vs. Kosas
Kosas - Wet Lip Oil Gloss DIOR - Lip Glow Oil Not a super huge price difference ($27 vs. $34) but a dupe nonetheless! The Kosas lip oil is amazing. It smells great yet is subtle. This is more of a hydrating gloss in my opinion but it adds such a gorgeous shine! This particular color (Jellyfish) is a very subtle pink but shows up as a clear sheen on the lips. This is such a convenient and cute container to throw in a bag! The dior lip glow oil I also thought was going to be a thin oil, but is definitely a gloss! This one is more thick and tacky than the Kosas one but not uncomfortable. This Cherry version has a subtle pink color that looks so natural and fresh on the lips. The color is more prominent than the Kosas one. I love the applicator! It has a thick rounded lip applicator that makes it so easy to apply. While these are very similar glosses, I prefer the texture of the Kosas one. It is still pricey at $27 but I love all the colors it comes in and I will for sure be repurchasing! If you were considering the Dior lip oil, maybe consider trying the Kosas one first.

MILK MAKEUP IDENTICAL DUPE!!!
I can’t believe I found an identical dupe to the holy grail milk makeup hydro primer! 30 dollars compared to 6 dollars! As you can see, same color and consistency! I prefer the dupe over the actually milk makeup! It hydrates my skin better and doesn’t ball up when I apply my foundation. This is an amazing product and a must have for your makeup collection.

Worth It | Stila VS. NYX
When talking about color correcting concealer, Stila and NYX must be the two popular brands. Today, I will compare the products from these two brands and see if the NYX one can replace Stila one. STILA Correct And Perfect Palette | 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Price: $72 Hydrating | 🌟🌟🌟🌟 Long-lasting | 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Coverage | 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 First time I bought it is because of the packaging. Like most Stila Palette, it is gold, solid, sturdy packaging that says sophisticated and luxurious! This also comes with a booklet to guide you on how to use every single product in this palette. Very handy indeed. All of the creams are very pigmented, easy to blend, not oily and not dry. The orange one is the highest coverage. All are lightweight and long-wearing. It doesn't cake under the eye. Foundation blends with no issues on top. The only shortage of it is the higher price. NYX COLOR CORRECTING PALETTE | 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Price: $12 Hydrating | 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Long-lasting | 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Coverage | 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 It is fantastic! I use this every morning on my darker undereye circles. The mixture of yellow with a bit of the apricot color is effective for covering the eye area! And stays ALL DAY without setting powder. A light coat of the green is great for any redness. I usually wear it under foundation for a more polished look. It totally replaced the Stila one for me. Because of the dupe, I think the Stila one is not worth a big amount of price. NYC color correcting palette can definitely replace it and give you an amazing experience.

$6 Dupe for Milk Makeup’s Flex Highlight
No look is complete without highlight—and they can be surprisingly really expensive. I love to layer my highlight and start with a crème variation. Then, I’ll dust a powder highlight in a similar shade on top for a high-intensity shine. I had been hearing so many amazing things about Milk Makeup’s Flex Highlight and was so excited to win it in a giveaway. But I never committed to buying it because it’s a hefty $34. This is such a cult fave because of its smooth formula, which is fortified with hyaluronic acid to make the skin appear plump and dewy. It also contains crushed gemstones to create a megawatt glow. $34 is a lot of money for a highlighter, if you ask me. If you’re looking for the same level of shimmer and smoothness without the price tag, then I recommend trying the Butter Highlight Physician’s Formula—which you can buy for $6 at Target! This formula is so smooth that it melts into the skin and delivers instant radiance. It’s also infused with murumuru, cupuacu and tucuma butters, so it has that same hydration component and leaves the skin hydrated and dewy. A little goes a loooong way with this highlight – so make sure you’re taking the excess of your brush before applying. *SWATCHES IN FOLLOWING POST* Milk MAKEUP - Flex Highlighter PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Butter Highlighter
