My Favorite Makeup and Their Dupes

I have a newfound love for high end makeup but that doesn’t mean I’m foregoing my love for Etude House, Maybelline, ELF, and just recently I developed some lovin’ for Revlon, Wet N Wild, NYX and Fanny Serrano cosmetics. Some of the products in the said lines are comparable to high end ones. I’ll give you 3 of my favorite dupes.


First, the bestselling NARS Orgasm with its dupe, ELF Glow:

Here are swatches:

Another favorite is NARS Super Orgasm:

The dupe is the Dear Darling Blush from Etude House. I’m not sure what the exact shade is but at the back it says CH004 C91020. I made a review of this blush here.

And lastly, MAC Chez Chez Lame and ELF Luminance:

I super love ELF Luminance! I guess you can see the evidence. They’re so similar. See here:

I think Chez is a limited edition thing but Luminance is a staple so if you missed Chez, just grab a pot of Luminance. I also did a review of this here.


I have a ton of makeup and I’m sure there are still dupes somewhere there. I’ll post more when I discover them.


  1. great post E! thanks for sharing this dupe list. :)

  2. I want to try ELF Luminance. It's pretty! :)

  3. I want to try the e.l.f. Luminance too!! It's soooo pretty!!

  4. hey E, I'm taking notes! :) i'm so into highlighters, illuminizers (?)-- anything to create that glow, that barely there make-up. Keep it up! Will be waiting for your next dupe post :)

  5. can you post on lipsticks dupes?

    and the elf illuminance is intriguing

  6. I will try with the lipstick dupes but I'm not making any promises. I'm very careful when I buy lipstick so my collection is quite varied.

  7. @Sherbeth: Then I suggest that you invest in matte bronzers too. Bobbi Brown is big on bronzers for that no makeup look.
