Review

Pixi’s cult-fave Glow Tonic is an award-winning skincare product that helps remove impurities while also lightly hydrating & protecting skin.

Pixi’s contains 5% Glycolic acid [key ingredient] which removes the top layer of dead skin cells, helping to reveal the healthy layer of skin underneath. It also helps to regulate oil levels. 

The Ordinary has this great affordable alternative. Both products contain Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Water for soothing the skin and antioxidant Panax Ginseng Root Extract. And the Ordinary has the key ingredient Glycolic Acid but at 7%, making it a more effective at exfoliating.

The best lipstick I’ve ever brought “darlings” 😂

No words for this one. I brought a few bits from dupeshop now, but this lipstick has blown me away. It’s creamy and nourishing, while still looking matte and the colour is perfect. Overall life saver as I really wanted to try more shades from the CT range but seriously can’t justify spending that right now

I have both creams and can vouch

I’m usually sceptical when it comes to getting dupes for moisturiser and prefer to just pay more and get the ‘real deal’. But this has well and truly converted me. Gives me the same results, feels identical! Absolutely over the moon

Best chubby stick dupe ever!!

been using the chubby sticks since forever so happy I’ve found a cheaper replacement. The only difference is that the packaging of this is fatter whereas the Clinique is slimmer 🤣

reminds me of the clinique chubby sticks

I've been using this cream blush for a few weeks now and I am extremely happy with it. It goes on smoothly and blends easily, giving me a radiant, healthy-looking glow.

Creamy, pigmented, easy to blend and glowy

The best blush I’ve ever used. Super glowy and gives my cheeks that perfect flush of colour. Never looks cakey, it just blends in like second skin

unbelievable Smashbox primer dupe

I’ve been using the smashbox primer for years now, it’s been my go to and I could not do my makeup without it. I brought this as smash box isn’t available in the UK anymore (which I was so upset about). But I’m seriously blown away with this primer. It feels like the same product just in a different package. I’ve attached a pic for anyone who hasn’t seen what the smashbox primer is like and how similar the two are. Thank you dupe shop!!! (Left side is dupe shop primer and right side is smashbox primer)

Amazing pigmented lipstick

Ordered this after seeing it on Facebook and it's incredible! Looks extremely similar to my favourite mac lipstick. It's so creamy and pigmented and loved that it arrived in only 2 days.. Super happy customer

Actually as described.

I’ve been using the YSL touche eclat for years this is probably my eighth bottle and it was the only primer I’ve found that actually makes a difference to how I look. I’m abit staggered at how this dupe shop primer actually is miles better than the YSL. It gives a much smoother finish to my makeup and my skin breaks out less since I switched (maybe because it doesn’t have glitter) anyway I would recommend this to anyone looking for a YSL dupe or just a reliable primer!
