Beauty Dupes – My picks from Beauty Base

You know I love good dupe so when Beauty Base contacted me to pick some items from their site to show some new dupes, I had to accept their challenge.

I picked three items from the Milani range and I am really excited to share them with you. Two of the products I have, one I don’t but I have done my research and it seems to be a good dupe.

Base 1

The dupe for a cult classic

Base 2I chose the Milani Strobelight Instant Glow Powder in the shade Moon Glow as I had heard it was a dupe for the classic (and one of my favourites) Soft and Gentle by MAC.

I have both and I put them to the test.

Base 3

Base 4

Soft and Gentle is on the left and the Milani one is on the right. Although they are not exactly the same in the heavy swatch on the hand but the effect on the face is almost the exactly spot on. You wouldn’t know the difference.

The Milani one was so good, definitely comparable.

The Dupe for the hottest palette right now

Base 5

This is the Milani Everyday Eyes Palette in the Earthy Elements and it really has similar tones to the much coveted new Naked palette from Urban Decay.

I have both of these palettes and there are a few looks that you can create that are similar. I swatched the colours that were most like each other with the Heat palette on the right on the Milani on the left.

Base 9

Base 10

The dupe that will be the most exciting

Base 10

I don’t have the original product but I have it on good authority that this product from Milani is a nearly exact dupe.

This Amore Matte Lip Cream in the Shade Adorable (vegan friendly) is a nearly exact dupe, not just in shade but in formula and longevity to the Kylie Cosmetics shade Candy K. One of her first and most wanted lip kits.

Base 11

There is a plethora of other dupe products on their sites, including the much loved w7 brand which always have great dupes of higher end products so please go and check them out if you get an opportunity.

Have you got any dupes of high end brands that I should know about? Do you love getting products that give the look of something more expensive but don’t hurt the purse strings?

    These are some good dupes. I’ve been trying out a few Milani bits recently and I am actually really impressed with the brand.

    It is amazing what dupes you can find when you look for them, I am loving the look of the eyeshadow palette, that has some gorgeous shapes in it.

    Really nice products! x

    These are such good dupes, especially when you see how they look swatched side by side. Time to check out Beauty Base stat!

    Thanks for sharing!

    I like that you went for gold and brown colors in all the products you have chosen. They are a perfect addition to your make-up kit at the end of the summer, to make your tan stand out. I always use golden shades when I’m tanned.

  9. September 25, 2017 / 10:25 pm

    I love the golds, those are my favourite shades through the summer with a tan. I never really switch it up for the seasons but I think I might!

    Love that lip cream and like that it is vegan friendly also.

  11. September 26, 2017 / 5:17 am

    I think when you find products that are a perfect dupe especially on application it’s always nice to have them in your arsenal and these seem like really nice dupes

  12. September 26, 2017 / 5:26 am

    What beautiful shades! It’s great that there are more affordable alternatives available for these products – more in line with my limited budget!

    The lip gloss is a gorgeous shade and the palette looks great too. Definitely an interesting website to know about for dupes!

  14. September 26, 2017 / 8:50 am

    The highlighter strobe dupe looks really good. I find a lot of brands are doing similar palettes to the naked ones x

  15. September 26, 2017 / 11:25 am

    It’s always a good thing to know where you can track down good dupes. I think the vegan lip is great – love that shade.

  16. September 26, 2017 / 12:55 pm

    I bet the dupe highlighter is so much cheaper, I’ll be getting that instead of the MAC one!

  17. September 26, 2017 / 2:55 pm

    I love the copper looking eyeshadow it looks right up my street. It’s so nice to find all new products ????

  18. September 26, 2017 / 9:18 pm

    Wow! That highlighter is incredible! I love the look so much!

    I love the colours in that palette. So autumnal and perfect for this time of year.

  20. September 27, 2017 / 1:21 pm

    We’ve never tried dupes but I’m sure my daddy and the bank manger would thank my mummy for trying some instead! These look very good dupes!

    These all look great dupes. The Mac soft & gentle is one of my favourite highlighters but I don’t use it often as it was so expensive. I’ll definitely try the Milani Strobelight version. It looks prettier in the pan than the Mac one!

    I love this lip cream and was an amazing dupe! I was considering buying a Kylie Lip Kit but I’m going to try this instead – thanks!

  23. September 27, 2017 / 10:38 pm

    The glow powder looks amazing, I love finding things that are a bit cheaper and save me some pennies!

  24. September 29, 2017 / 11:08 am

    This highlighter looks so good, not to mention the whole palette. NEED them!

    As someone who used to work at MoneySavingExpert and was constantly on the lookout for dupes on make-up, perfume and alcohol, things that we all love but can cost a bomb lol. These dupe finds are brilliant, well done x
