Always waiting for the perfect timing? It’s hard isn’t it? To time your online orders with the new release of that Kylie Lip Kit you’ve been wanting to get since a year ago!
Make-up lovers know the struggle of purchasing products that are not exclusively available in the country. Whether it’s an established brand or a start-up, it always seems unavailable or out of stock whenever you visit their websites. And if they’re available through online shops in the country, you get second thoughts because you know replicas and scammers are abundant in the web.
But girls, if there’s one thing we swear by, it’s that you don’t have to buy expensive to look expensive. While high-end brands add a touch of luxury and exclusivity, we all love a good bargain from time to time. So to help you out, we’ve gathered the best dupes for those hard-to-find make-up favorites to keep you looking fabulous (while you wait for the next restock) without breaking the bank.
NYX NUDE ON NUDE PALETTE VS. URBAN DECAY NAKED EYESHADOW PALETTE

MAC COSMETICS LIPSTICK IN VELVET TEDDY VS. KYLIE LIP KIT IN CANDY K
Coveted around the world, Kylie Jenner’s lip kits are definitely a must-have for avid make-up collectors but since these aren’t mass-produced, its limited stocks always run out before any of us could click that order button. So if you find yourself empty handed during the wee hours of the morning after waiting for the restock, just head over to your nearest MAC store and get yourself the perfect Candy K dupe: Velvet Teddy.

Get those gorgeous Louboutin red nails minus the price tag with O.P.I.’s nail lacquer in Red Race. It’s the perfect dupe for the Rouge Louboutin nail color and it costs way cheaper than its counterpart, like what we said earlier looking expensive doesn’t have to be expensive at all.
