Transcripts

00:00

we are gathered here today because being

00:01

a girl is expensive and I don't think it

00:04

has to be I went out and I bought all of

00:05

the dupes to my favorite makeup products

00:07

and I want to see if I can replace the

00:09

expensive makeup product with the

00:11

cheaper dupe version of it I'm hoping we

00:12

find some hidden gems today but I'm also

00:14

hoping that I don't completely lose my

00:15

eyebrows again oh my God oh my God what

00:19

did I do but they're back so it's okay I

00:21

guess we just have to get started to

00:23

find out first up the super goop glow

00:25

screen it's obviously been used this

00:28

retails for $38 and then we have the

00:30

dupe which is the e.l.f wo glow and this

00:33

is only $13 I figure how I'm going to do

00:36

it is we'll put the expensive product on

00:38

this side of my face and the cheap

00:39

product on this side of my face and then

00:40

come back at the end of the day and show

00:42

you how both of them held up yeah this

00:44

one's obviously well loved I do love my

00:47

glow screen but $30 is kind of a lot so

00:50

I'm hoping that we can like the dupe do

00:53

I even look any

00:54

different no it's so funny I feel like

00:57

they look similar on purpose like elf

00:59

knows what they're doing out here making

01:00

a more affordable dupe but is it a good

01:03

dupe that is the question it doesn't

01:04

look as like shimmery this feels more

01:06

like a skin tint and it smells more like

01:08

real sunscreen which is good or bad

01:10

depending on if you like the smell I

01:11

like the smell I'm curious to see how

01:13

they hold up all day long as far as the

01:15

element of It kind of giving you a glow

01:18

and a little bit of like makeup with it

01:20

there's a little bit more shine and a

01:22

little bit more coverage whereas this

01:24

one I feel like is literally just

01:25

sunscreen but it's $13 so do with that

01:27

what you will okay next we have the

01:29

01:53

remember like these went so viral on Tik

01:55

01:57

that's bronzing the thing about these

01:59

though is I feel like you can't really

02:00

tell unless it's like under your makeup

02:02

so this will be a little hard to judge

02:04

now for the Newbie okay that's like

02:07

super glowy that looks pretty good okay

02:09

very similar it feels really soft and

02:12

like moisturizing when I'm putting it on

02:14

I like it these kind of both look the

02:16

same to me so I think I might have to go

02:18

with the dup on this one I still love

02:21

you you're wonderful just expensive next

02:23

up we have primer we have the milk Hydro

02:26

primer retailing for $38 and then we

02:29

have the e.

02:30

power grip primer for $10 which is crazy

02:34

I might wait to judge these ones until I

02:36

put on my Foundation ooh my gosh it

02:39

reminds me of that like snail Muse in

02:40

remember when that was going around this

02:42

is one of the few products I actually

02:43

haven't tried yet oh yeah that feels

02:45

like it would be a really good primer my

02:47

face is

02:48

like look at that stick milk doing is

02:51

proud per usual let's see about elf. the

02:53

only makeup I could afford in high

02:55

school was drugstore makeup so I was

02:57

living off of like E.L L'Oreal

02:59

Maybelline all of those Brands and then

03:01

after college when you know I started

03:03

making more money and I could afford to

03:05

go to places like Sephora and Ulta I was

03:07

so excited but I will always love these

03:09

Brands so much ooh okay this one's a

03:12

little more liquidy as you can see it's

03:14

like dripping down my finger wa that is

03:17

sticky the amount of stuff that is going

03:20

on my face today this is a full beat

03:23

ladies and gentlemen this doesn't feel

03:25

quite as like smooth and calming but it

03:28

feels very sticky I will say this side

03:30

of my face feels extremely sticky right

03:32

now and this one I don't feel it which

03:34

is nice cuz I don't like feeling things

03:36

on my face now we have this one is going

03:38

to be so hard for me this has been my

03:40

Holy Grail foundation for 8 years this

03:43

is the Giorgio Armani luminous silk

03:46

Foundation I have literally been using

03:48

this forever even when I couldn't afford

03:50

nice makeup I would splurge on this and

03:52

then the rest of my makeup will be cheap

03:53

so I'm very curious if Essence Pretty

03:56

Natural will do the job this is um no

03:59

pun intended $69 and this is $16 also I

04:03

don't want to talk about the color of my

04:04

Foundation I did my makeup routine on

04:05

Tik Tok the other day and everyone

04:07

freaking roasted me and told me that it

04:09

looks green and I need to go get color

04:10

matched I need to get my eyes checked

04:12

and you know what maybe I just like

04:13

looking tan and you know what it doesn't

04:15

look green I think it was just the

04:17

lighting was just the lighting right I

04:19

feel like luminous silk is the perfect

04:21

term for this Foundation cuz it just

04:24

looks so like silky and soft and I love

04:28

it so much it also gives really good

04:30

coverage which is nice I would go

04:32

through periods of time where I'd have

04:34

cystic acne and it would still cover my

04:36

cystic acne without feeling like cakey

04:38

you got some big shoes to fill Essence o

04:40

it has aloe vera in it okay right off

04:42

the bat I'd say it's not as much

04:44

coverage it's actually looking pretty

04:47

good why does it look so good what are

04:49

you it looks so good it's like glowy and

04:54

honestly like other than the color

04:55

difference like both sides look the same

04:57

I did not think this was possible but I

05:00

might have to hand it to the dupe on

05:01

this one I mean $16 to like have that

05:05

glowy finish on your face oh this is

05:08

hard I did not expect this I didn't

05:10

think that many dupes would take it but

05:12

this like the dupes are kind of crushing

05:13

it today I also will now rate the

05:15

primers honestly I think both primers

05:18

did a really good job I think I'm still

05:20

going to stick with the milk primer

05:23

though I do I like how I don't feel it

05:25

as much like this part of my face does

05:27

feel a little stickier and heavier still

05:29

but the one it also did a great job so

05:31

again preference now we have concealer

05:34

we have the giorio Armani luminous silk

05:36

concealer to match I have been using

05:39

this one forever as well this retails

05:40

for $42 it's pretty small it does last a

05:43

while though and then we have the Nyx

05:45

bare With Me concealer serum this is

05:47

only $12 these price differences are

05:50

crazy got like a few few acne scars oh

05:53

wo it's like a okay how do I apply

05:57

that okay your brush

06:01

speaking of dupes I gave up Beauty

06:03

blenders years ago and switched to Real

06:05

Techniques and these actually do work

06:07

better than Beauty blenders in the

06:08

refraction of the price this did a great

06:10

job I'm not sure if it's the foundation

06:13

or this concealer but this side is

06:15

starting to look a little bit more cakey

06:17

and textured than this side but it still

06:20

looks really good I'm going to go ahead

06:21

and hand it to the expensive one for the

06:24

concealer we have the Anastasia Brow gel

06:27

I love Anastasia I've been using their

06:29

products for a very long time this is

06:31

$26 and then we have the e.l.f brow lift

06:34

gel that is only

06:36

$6 I love gel cuz I don't know if you

06:39

can tell but I have very thick eyebrows

06:42

and nothing but gel Works to hold them

06:44

in place so I feel like I'm a really

06:46

good tester for this because my eyebrows

06:48

do not want to be tamed I used to use

06:51

the ones that were like in a tube and

06:52

you kind of like brush it into your

06:53

brows and those didn't do anything not

06:56

for a second of the day but the gel work

06:59

works

07:00

so freaking well that is staying all day

07:04

and then I'll use the other side of my

07:05

brush for the E.L one so I don't get it

07:08

all like mixed up here we go it's the

07:11

same product it works just as well my

07:15

brows are now Frozen into place giving

07:18

it to the dupe on this one that is crazy

07:20

I was convinced that I would find really

07:23

good dupes but I didn't think there

07:25

would be this many I don't want to get

07:26

my hopes up too high but it's going

07:28

really well I feel like a lot of these

07:29

dupes

07:30

are crushing it this is going to be

07:32

another hard one the rare Beauty blush I

07:34

love this stuff so much I love rare

07:36

Beauty my company donates to the rare

07:38

impact fund every month that is part of

07:40

the donations that we make every time

07:42

someone buys one of our hugs of the

07:43

month 10% goes to the rare impact fund

07:46

so I'm obviously a little biased but I'm

07:48

going to set my biases aside this one is

07:50

$23 I think that is super affordable for

07:53

a really nice makeup brand that works

07:55

really well but there's the elf dupe for

07:58

$7 going with the tried and true does

08:01

anyone else smile when they put on blush

08:03

or am I just weird I'm really curious

08:06

[Music]

08:11

about that was a bad

08:13

idea got it okay that's honestly so

08:16

ironic because Selena G's literally made

08:18

these so that they're easy to open for

08:20

people that have some autoimmune

08:22

struggles like myself I've always looked

08:24

up to Selena but like getting diagnosed

08:26

with an autoimmune disease I feel I look

08:28

up to her even more more and seeing what

08:30

she's done and how she's been able to

08:32

overcome so much of it and how she's

08:33

been able to like impact others that

08:35

struggle with it not to go on my Selena

08:38

Gomez Fang girl rant but bear with me

08:40

the colors are a little different I

08:42

could only find so many shade matches

08:44

this one's a little more patchy I would

08:46

say I feel like it's very light I

08:48

probably need to build it but there's

08:49

like kind of patches missing like here

08:51

the rare Beauty one just like looks a

08:53

little bit more like my skin I think I'm

08:55

going to hand it to rare Beauty on this

08:57

one okay bronzers I very excited for

08:59

this one because this is my everyday

09:01

Charlotte Tilbury bronzer as you can

09:03

tell we've been through many of these

09:06

this retails for

09:07

$58 but when I was a wee young one in

09:10

junior high and high school this is

09:13

actually what I used I used the

09:14

Physician's Formula I got it at Target

09:17

it is $13 I know for a fact that this

09:20

one works really well and it smells

09:22

delicious what's cool though is I found

09:24

out that you can actually get refills of

09:27

just the inside and it's cheaper that

09:29

way that you don't have to like buy the

09:30

packaging too so that's like a little

09:32

hack if you're wanting to buy this one

09:35

okay she is blendable she's easy to work

09:38

with we're going to go in with the

09:39

physician formula smells so good it

09:41

smells like smells like coconuts it

09:43

smells like the beach do you want to

09:44

smell it I wish that worked she's doing

09:46

her thing damn I might be switching back

09:49

over to Physician's Formula after this I

09:51

am just obsessed with the smell of like

09:53

sunscreen and coconut and anything that

09:55

reminds me of the beach feel like it

09:57

just makes me so happy if I were to be

09:59

completely honest which is hard because

10:01

this may ruin some brand relationships

10:04

and future opportunities for me I think

10:06

this one looks better I think it

10:08

actually Blended a little bit better I'm

10:10

impressed I'm going to give it to the

10:12

dupe on this one one thing about me is

10:14

I'm always going to be honest anyone

10:15

who's followed me for longer than like a

10:17

month probably knows that at this point

10:19

next up we have highlighter this is a

10:21

benefit tickle highlighter their

10:22

highlighters are so freaking cute again

10:25

benefit is a brand that I love so much

10:26

my mom lived in San Francisco for a long

10:28

time and she went went to the very first

10:30

benefit she introduced it to me when I

10:31

was a kid and it became one of the

10:33

makeup brands I'd like play with in her

10:35

makeup kit so my hardest always going to

10:37

be with benefit this one is $35 we also

10:40

have the Wet n Wild highlighting powder

10:43

Mega glow this one is $7 highlighter is

10:45

so hard it really depends on what you

10:47

like do you want to be blinding people

10:49

in space do you want to be you know like

10:51

a sunshine glow do you want it to be

10:53

like a subtle like from within glow do

10:56

you want it to be dewy if you want it

10:57

dewy don't go for powder we just take

10:59

them moment look at her okay that is the

11:04

benefit highlighter can you see it how

11:06

do beauty queens do it how do they how

11:08

do they make it look so

11:11

easy where is it

11:14

okay I see her I don't think I like that

11:17

it looks a little sad like some of the

11:19

makeup on this side of my face just

11:20

looks kind of like patchy whereas I feel

11:22

like this side of my face looks a a lot

11:24

more like it's just part of my skin I'm

11:26

giving it to benefit on this one it is

11:27

absolutely not biased I really do think

11:30

the benefit one looks better another

11:32

absolute favorite the benefit roller

11:34

lash I have been using since I was 15 so

11:37

over 10 years now I use the roller lash

11:39

and the bang lash and I'm addicted to

11:41

them I've tried a ton of mascaras I've

11:43

never found anything better I stick to

11:45

them they're

11:46

$28 but someone recently told me the elf

11:49

came out with a dupe I mean look at the

11:51

color scheme they're coming for you

11:53

benefit this is the Lash and roll

11:55

curling and lifting mascara this one is

11:57

only $6 but what will it live up to my

12:00

tried and true the love of my life dude

12:02

I remember the first time I ever got to

12:04

meet the benefit team they took me to

12:06

San Francisco and I went to the office

12:08

and I got to meet everyone it was so

12:09

cool and I told them how I've only used

12:13

their mascara for like 10 years and they

12:15

sent me home with like 20 of them yeah

12:18

look at

12:19

that they're the same wow that's so

12:23

interesting all right let's try them

12:25

out I am very judgmental on mascara what

12:29

I tell you I have gone to a drugstore

12:32

and I have tried every mascara I've even

12:35

tried like the fancy like designer

12:36

mascaras and nothing has lived up to the

12:39

benefit roller lash and bang lash okay

12:41

you cannot tell me that is not perfect

12:44

they're so long they're not clumped

12:46

together they look so natural that's why

12:48

it's my favorite going to go with

12:50

elf I'm excited let nervous some of

12:54

these dupes it's like everything I

12:55

believed is a lie you know like how much

12:57

money have I spent okay

13:00

took a little bit more like working

13:01

withd to make the lashes look good but

13:04

looks really

13:06

good I will say the roller lash was

13:10

easier to work with like this one I

13:12

swiped it like twice and it was done

13:14

this one I had to fiddle with it a

13:16

little more but if we're looking at if

13:17

the dupe can do the job God I handed to

13:19

the dupe on this one I'm so sorry I

13:22

still love you man dupes are just taking

13:24

it home another classic benefit product

13:27

this is actually I believe this this is

13:29

the very first product they ever came

13:30

out with it is the Bena tint you can put

13:32

it on your cheeks you can put it on your

13:33

lips little PG-13 comment um this was

13:37

originally designed to be like the color

13:39

of your nipple and then this random

13:40

brand that I've never heard of but

13:42

apparently is a good dup is only $6 and

13:44

I got it on Amazon I will say looking at

13:46

the ingredients it looks like this one

13:48

has some more toxic ingredients so right

13:52

off the bat I probably wouldn't choose

13:53

to use that one it's so cute it also

13:56

smells good it smells like roses I am so

13:59

tempted to go get my lips tattooed I

14:01

just wish they were a different color so

14:03

I use this to fulfill my need to tattoo

14:05

my lips got the bentin on now for aot

14:09

lip tint heart water it smells just like

14:12

the cough sht my mom used to give me

14:14

okay well Nostalgia I guess okay this

14:17

one might come down to preference cuz

14:19

this one's just like this one's just

14:20

darker and this one's more natural based

14:22

on smell and ingredients I am going to

14:25

choose benefit for this one um I think

14:28

this one's just a little bit safer maybe

14:31

to use another product that I clearly

14:33

love because look how small and used it

14:36

is is the Charlotte Tilbury lip liner in

14:39

pillow talk this is $25 I think that's

14:42

honestly like not too bad and this is

14:44

the Nyx lip liner dupe for $5 and

14:48

sharpen this bad boy it's going to get

14:49

even

14:51

smaller my favorite color like I feel

14:54

like it just like looks so good and

14:56

compliments so many different people

14:57

it's also pretty creamy through

14:59

Charlotte Tilbury now for next it's

15:01

definitely not like as creamy at all

15:04

it's very dry I will say like user

15:07

experience and look I probably am going

15:09
