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 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?
