Dupe means to find a cheaper replica of an expensive item. I love dupes especially if I can't get to my local Sephora or MAC counter. Here is my newest one:
e.l.f Lilac Petal shimmering facial whip is a dupe that I found today while shopping in Target. I bought it in hopes that it was a dupe for Benefit High Beam (my favorite Luminizer EVERRR) so let's look at them together:
The High Beam is a little more pinky than e.l.f, I was a little leery. But then I blended them in...
And look! They are pretty similar huh?
The packaging is a little different and I personally like the squeeze bottle better, but you can judge for yourself.
and here is Benefit:
(its more like a nail polish brush...)
This High Beam has lasted me 3 years, its a little more thick than when I first bought it but it was my go-to highlighter...until recently. It's almost gone and the closest Sephora is 2 hours away. I was glad I found this e.l.f dupe. The e.l.f luminizer is a steep $ 1.00 online and can be found in local Targets. The Benefit luminizer is $ 24.00, so for a $ 1.00 you cannot beat trying this gorgeous highlight.
Tip: I use it to highlight my cheekbones/brow bone/nose like this:
Do you have any dupes your want to share with me!?? I love discovering new dupes!
