Many qweens have taken it upon themselves to test, swatch, and review different formulas on TikTok to find the ultimate makeup dupes – we thank them for their service! After combing through tons, here are the trending makeup dupes that are guaranteed to save you a LOT of money – if we’re talking numbers, that’s $110.
1. TikTok-Trending Dupe for Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter, $49
The Drugstore Dupe: e.l.f. Cosmetics Halo Glow Liquid Filter, $14
This viral drugstore glow-boosting formula makes your skin look radiant and oh-so-dewy, like the cult-fave #CTFlawlessFilter. It contains finely milled powders that soften the appearance of pores while moisturizing squalane and hyaluronic acid hydrate for a fresh finish. With eight shades that work on all skin types, it’s the easiest (and cheapest) way to attain that #RedCarpetGlow on bare skin or over makeup.
2. TikTok-Trending Dupe for Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer, $21
The Drugstore Dupe: Maybelline Lifter Gloss with Hyaluronic Acid, $10
According to TikTok, you can recreate that mega-glossy Fenty effect with Maybelline’s high-shine glosses! Enriched with hydrating hyaluronic acid, the formula smooths fine lines and adds an explosive shimmer that instantly makes your lips appear fuller. They even have twice as many shades as Fenty, so you can choose from peachy pinks, ruby reds, and golden browns to match anything in your wardrobe.
3. TikTok-Trending Dupe for Glossier Cloud Paint Gel Cream Blush, $20
The Drugstore Dupe: Maybelline Cheek Heat Gel-Cream Blush, $8
To keep your blush under budget, go for Maybelline’s water-based blush. Like Glossier’s blush, it’s a gel-cream tube that applies and blends effortlessly, achieving everything from a rosy flush to a dewy, sunkissed glow in seconds. Pro tip: mix, match, and layer any of the six shades in their collection if you’re feeling playful!
