So I was window shopping on the Ulta Beauty website not too long ago and was checking out the NYX brand when I realized…they sold two different sponges. And there’s a price different between the two NYX sponges. Which got me curious — is the pricier one better? Are one of these a good Beauty Blender dupe? What’s the difference between these sponges?? So I purchased them both to test out and share my results with you all!
Dupe or Dud | KVD MetalMatte vs Okalan MatteMetal | Eye Look Comparison!
I originally saw the Okalan Natural MatteMetal palette on Shop Hush and had to get it to test out against the KVD MetalMatte palette that she launched for the holiday season of 2016. I own that palette, really enjoy it, and know many people regret not picking it up (darn, limited edition). So I’ve tested them out — side by side — this past month to see…is the Okalan a good dupe for the limited edition one??
Dupe or Dud | Urban Decay Razor Sharp VS NYX Vivid Brights Liquid Liners
It’s time for another “Dupe or Dud” match — and this time we are comparing the Urban Decay Razor Sharp liquid liners against the NYX Vivid Brights liquid liners. They certainly look the same…but is the quality/colors the same? Let’s get into it!
Dupe or Dud | ABH Subculture Palette vs Bad Habit Retro Love Palette | Eye Look Comparison!
It’s time to battle these two palettes out! I received the Bad Habit Retro Love palette earlier this year (I hauled it in this video) and I’ve been testing and comparing it against the ABH Subculture palette to see if its a cheaper (and more user-friendly!) dupe! Or is it a dud? Keep reading to find out! 🙂 [Read more…]
Dupe or Dud | ABH Modern Renaissance vs Wet n Wild Rosé in the Air Palette
The buzz surrounding the new formulation and addition of matte shades in Wet n Wild’s popular Color Icon line hit an all-time high when we saw their Rosé in the Air palette. Last year the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance palette basically revolutionized the beauty community for it’s fantastic formula and warm-toned reds and oranges, so of course everyone immediately saw the similarities between these palettes. And considering the price difference, everyone has been asking….”is it a dupe for Modern Renaissance??” Well, let’s dive into the nitty-gritty!
Clinique Take the Day Off vs IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup | Which is Better?
I’ve heard about Clinique’s Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm for a while, but never got around to trying it. Then when IT Cosmetics sent me their new Bye Bye Makeup Cleansing Balm — and fell absolutely in love — I knew I had to get the Clinique one and compare them. So I did just that…can you guess which one was better?
Dupe or Dud | LORAC Light Source Highlighter vs Pixi Beauty Glow-Y Powder
It’s been a hot minute since we’ve had a good dupe or dud here, and this one actually dropped in my lap on it’s own. Pixi Beauty recently collaborated with 4 Youtubers and I was generously sent all the products to try out. When I was trying the Glow-y powder in Santorini Sunset I realized it reminded me of my beloved (and holy grail!) LORAC Light Source Illuminating Highlighter in Daylight. So of course I had to share and dupe it out with you guys!
