We love a good cult beauty product – you know, those ones Instagrammed over and over every day. Take Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kits, Anastasia Beverley Hills’ Glow Kit and Brow Pomade for example. Thing is, there’s a price tag involved with these products and we reckon, with a sneaky bit of detective work, you can get dupes for much cheaper! Check this out…

Highlighting Kit

Want to get that ABH Glow? Well, at a recent event we discovered the Glowly Grail (we’re proud of that one) of highlighting kits. So good, in fact, we think rivals the Anastasia’s cult Glow Kit. Priced at just £25, Nude by Nature’s Highlighting Palette is £14 cheaper and includes some similar shades. Use the bronze to add warmth and definition, rose to for radiant colour and champagne to illuminate. The best bit? They’re 100% natural and cruelty free. Sold!

Cheek Sculpting Kit

Love Urban Decay’s Naked Flushed Compact? Us too! But paying £25 might seem a  bit steep when you discover Rimmel’s Kate Sculpting Palette is priced at just £6.99. Including a highlighter, bronzer and blusher each, it makes sense to get all your sculpting bits and bobs into one cheeky palette. Be sure to choose Rimmel to save over £18 though! It’s a no-brainer.

Flawless long wearing foundation on the top of your beauty list? You might be tempted to splurge £31 on Estée Lauder’s Double Wear Foundation. Think again! Here at Love Me Beauty we’re huge fans of Revlon ColorStay Makeup, thanks to its super long wear and buildable coverage. Not only that, it’s available in two different formulas for combination/oily and normal/dry skin. Including oil-controlling salicylic acid or hydrating hyaluronic acid, it not only stays flawless all day, but can help keep skin clear and gorgeous too!

Brow Pomade

Keeping those brows in check ain’t easy! And you might be persuaded to spend £15 on Anastasia Beverley Hills’ Dipbrow Pomade, after seeing a tutorial on Instagram. But what if we told you you could get a similar product for just £6? We’ve said it before – NYX are the kings of quality, affordable makeup and their Tame & Frame Brow Pomade is no exception. Just over a third of the price of Anastasia Beverley Hills’ version, it’s got a 4.2 star rating on Feel Unique too. Give it a bash!

Liquid Lipstick

We love a liquid lipstick as much as the next gal, but spending £25 on one shade is just not economical. Especially if we love all 50 shades! Sorry Anastasia, but NYX have done it again. Their best selling Soft Matte Lip Cream is priced at just £6 and boasts rave reviews to boot. The best bit? You can get 4 different colours for the price of one ABH shade. Bargain!
