June Perfect dupes

Lots of you lovely make-up savvy consumers commented on how helpful our previous post on the perfect dupe was so we decided to bring it back each month showing you a cheaper, close match to a more expensive brand.

 

 

Chanel Pro Lumiere V's Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation

At Pixiwoo we all loved Chanel Pro Lumiere and we were disappointed when Chanel discontinued it.
 After trying tons of different brands including Chanel's replacement perfection Lumiere we decided our opinion on the closest match was the fabulous Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation.
 Healthy mix serum foundation is a radiant, gel based, vitamin infused foundation that provides medium buildable coverage whilst being long wearing on the skin.
 At £9.99 its definitely worth a try, the only downside is that it is only available in 6 colours so may not suit all skin tones.

                                                                     Saving of £22.01



MAC Aqualine liquidlast V's Marks & Spencer turquoise liquid liner 

In my opinion one of the best colours MAC did in their Liquidlast liner was Aqualine. It was a real vibrant metallic turquoise that once it dried it did not budge.
When we saw Marks & Spencer new Limited collection we couldn't believe how similar the turquoise was to MAC's version.
 If anything I actually prefer the brush on the cheaper dupe as its slightly shorter and firmer.
This liner has the same colour payoff and longevity too.
Priced at £4.00 and available from www.marksandspencer.com

Saving of £9.50

MAC No 4 Lash V's Amazing Shine lash No 747-S item 663

MAC No 4 lashes are a hand made natural length, wispy lash.Great for creating natural volume without looking too bulky.
 Amazing shine lashes have a huge variety of lashes that they probably make a dupe for most premium cosmetic lashes.
 Item No 663 is almost identical and is 100% human hair.Looks pretty much the same on.I would still use Duo glue to apply though just to make sure they stay secure.
Priced at £1.99  and available from http://www.amazingshinenails.com

 

Saving of £8.01

 

 

Becca compact concealer V's MAC Studio finish concealer

Becca compact concealer is slightly different in the fact that it contains two colours in one product which is really great to mix or for blending.
Giving medium-full coverage it is a similar texture and finish to MAC Studio finish.
 Mac Studio finish is just a tiny bit more creamier. MAC concealer has an SPF of 35.This SPF is obviously really great for protection but just be careful of the flash back that SPF causes when having your photograph taken.
At £13.50 Studio finish is a real bargain and a huge saving.

  4. Thankyou so much for this, I really love the dupe posts and videos. As an avid follower of many beauty blogs I dont hear enough on this topic. I have been looking for a cheap dupe for benefits coralista, there is one in superdrug from the Look make me blush range in flush which I think might be similar but a tad more glittery. What do you think? If you know of a good dupe for Coralista please let me know as its such a unique peachy/glittery colour Dana x

  20. Really, the Healthy Mix Serum is very simular to Chanel's Pro Lumiere? I'm using the Bourjois HMS since they just released it. It's my fav foundation and I'm now up to my fourth bottle.

  21. I've been wanting to try Bourjois foundation for a while hoping it'll steer me away from my VitaLumiere Aqua :) Laura x

  22. Thanks for this, always looking for cheaper versions! I have two questions, firstly, would you say the serum is suitable for those with very dry skin? And also it doesn't look like you can actually buy the lashes from that website, do you know of any distributors? x

  23. I wish they had bourjois here in NZ :-D but hopefully I can pick some up on my trip to Aus.

  25. Love this post as I am always on the look out for good dupes. The MUA eyeshadow in shade 12 is a really good dupe for MAC's club eyeshadow and is a fraction of the price, you should check it out.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Is the healthy mix serum similar to the 10 hour sleep effect foundation? Because it seemed that the healthy mix serum comes in the lighter shades and then the darker shades were only available in the 10 hour sleep effect foundation? I really like that healthy mix serum but there is no way I can find the right shade :(

  27. The MAC Turquoise liquid liner was my staple for years, since I was in highschool. I would love! To try the dupe! Is there a website for the USA?

  28. I had an amazing lipstick by Chanel called Rouge Coco Mademoiselle (#5) and several beers later in a bar in Soho it fell out of my purse forever. I contemplated buying another, but I'm a student and can't always afford £23 lipstick. I found the perfect dupe in Rimmel's Kate Moss Collection (#19). Both are a dusty almost corally rose and look amazing on anyone AND you'll be saving like £20. x

  29. I agree with you. I think the Bourjois foundation are really good high quality for a superdrug brand. I use the healthy mix foundation. I also try and find really cheap make-up as oppose to expensive ones and compare to see which one you should get.
