Splurge or Save

Over time I’ve tried and tested so many products, expensive and affordable! In my opinion a lot of the affordable products are sometimes better that the more expensive! I’ve put together some products, which are by no means dupes, but in my opinion are better or do the same thing 🙂 let me know what you think!!

L’oreal True Match Foundation vs Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

I have a full review of the L’oreal True match here. I’ve heard from numerous people that its a dupe of the Giorgio Armani Luminous silk and I gave it a go and I have to say I prefer the L’oreal true match! The texture is pretty similar, the coverage in my opinion seems to be a little better in the True match and there is a pretty big difference in the price!! The L’oreal True match works out at €14.99 and the Luminous silk is €45!!

Blank Canvas E30 vs Penneys Ps range eyebrow brush

I absolutely LOVE the Blank Canvas Brushes. The E30 is the perfect brush for your brows, it has an angled brush and the other end is a spoolie and it works out at €7.99. Penneys now have a brush which is the exact same and only €1.50!! 

Essence Eyeshadow base vs Urban Decay Eyeshadow primer lotion

Eyeshadow primers are so handy to provide a smooth canvas before applying your eyeshadow, help your eyeshadow stay in place for longer, to even skin tone and to intensify the colour of the eyeshadow. The texture and colour of the Essence and the Urban Decay eyeshadow primers are different but in my opinion they do the same job, I even prefer the Essence, it seems to have more coverage.The Urban decay works out at €23 and the Essence is €3.09!!!

Urban Decay Naked Skin Complete coverage concealer vs Catrice Liquid concealer 

These are by no means a dupe of each other, even though I did read it somewhere that they were. There is more of a shade selection in the Urban decay concealers with 11 and in the Catrice there is only 2! The texture and the coverage of the two concealers are very similar in my opinion! The Urban decay concealer works out at €22 and the Catrice is €3.99 which is pretty big difference!!

Inglot AMC Eyebrow gel vs NYX tame and frame tinted brow pomade

The shade I would use in the Inglot brow gel is 20 and in the NYX I use 04 ESPRESSO and they are very very similar, they are both long lasting but texture of the Inglot is slightly thicker than the NYX, but other characteristics of these products are very similar! The Inglot gel liner works out at €16 for a 2g pot and the NYX works out at €7.75 for a 5g pot.

Any questions feel free to ask!!

Much love
