High-end Makeup Dupes #2 (Ft. Hourglass, Freck, Dior, Fenty)
The Hourglass Ambient® Lighting Powder ($48) was revolutionary when it first came out. Who would thought a setting powder can set makeup and illuminate face at the same time using smart light reflections? There are a couple of brands that followed suits after Hourglass, the Laura Mercier Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder ($39) is a close dupe (per its name) that gives a soft-focus subtle glow; the Flower Beauty (such an underrated brand) also has a light illusion powder ($13.99) that has great reviews.
How amazing that freckles were once thought as imperfections, and now are considered as 'beauty marks' and are so celebrated products are made for us to draw on faux freckles.
Please try supporting the original product if you can spare a couple more bucks though :)
Dior skin glow foundation ($52) was one of the few foundations that we've all used up at beautydupes.xyz. It's hydrating without being oily, liquidy and light in texture - easy to apply, and wears well without becoming oxidized. If this is what you are looking for, here are some of the closest dupes: (drug store) MaybellineDream Radiant Liquid Foundation ($12.99); (cruelty-free) IT CosmeticsYour Skin But Better Foundation ($39.5); (black woman owned) UOMA Beauty Say What?! Foundation ($39).
This is one of the most searched products at beauty dupes. Our hypothesis is that it's a great product that definitely lives up to its hype, but some probably don't like its scent or are looking for more affordable alternatives because…gloss is one of those products you have to reapply frequently and gloss junkies cannot help but keep reapplying ( you with me?).
