Beauty Dupes

Looking for an alternative to the pricey Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream? Glossier's Priming Moisturizer Rich is such an underrated product IMO that is very similar to the magic cream, in texture and in the result. But you can save $65 by getting the Glossier one.

We wrote more about why the glossier priming moisturizer rich is a dupe for the magic cream in our recent dupe alert.


I bought the Coola dew good illuminating serum sunscreen in one of my FSA account spending sprees. I just started using it last week and WOW.

It gives the from-within glow that the Charlotte Tilbury flawless filter gives, with no shimmers.

This is much more natural than the Supergoop! Glowscreen. I much prefer the Coola one.


Love an old Hollywood look!

Temporary tattoo as makeup?!

@melodiousbruno on IG has been posting tutorials on how she incorporates butterfly temporary tattoos into her eye look. I bet this look would be super popular for music festivals.


I love the lavender shimmery eye look that Jennie Kim got at Met Gala.

Based on her makeup artist’s photo, Jennie wore two ILIA eye tints to achieve this look, the soft lavender matte shade in aster, and the chromatic grey lavender shade in dim.


Pris on Twitter always has some unusual takes. Like mixing the Inky List polyglutamic acid to give the foundation a serum-like consistency to go on more easily. Genius!
