lorac 2

dupes/alternatives masterpost ✨

Hey loves, this masterpost was partially requested and I’m so excited.  I recommend to do your research before buying the dupe, some of the dupes are better than others. Some brands are repeated. Here is a dupe masterpost for MAC lipsticks. Here is a dupe masterpost for liquid lipsticks. Here is a spreadsheet of Coastal Scents eyeshadows to MAC eyeshadow dupes. Most of these dupes I found online so I do not take credit for any of those but some I researched myself. This is under read more because this list is very long. :) If you have any more dupes or questions, feel free to send them in.

gabby do you have any cheap makeup brand recs? i'm low on cash rn but in desperate need of some new lip products and pretty much everything tbh :(

i’ll give you some of my fave products from them too if ya want honey

mua / makeup academy - do not test their products or ingredients on animals but ingredients aren’t necessarily vegan or vegetarian friendly, ships worldwide

  • paint box lip palettes £4 - i have all 4 and i adore them, my faves are imperial plums and rose rouge, but they’re all incredible and have matte and gloss looks in them that you can mix for different colours or finishes and come with two lip brushes for lining and filling
  • luxe velvet lip lacquers £3 - comparable to gerard cosmetics hydra matte liquid lipsticks (£20 on their site or £9.50 on beautybay (!!!!)) (especially packaging wise) my faves are dash and passion but you can get a bundle of 8 for £20
  • lipsticks and matte lipsticks £1 each!!! - idk if it’s the fact it’s £1 and i can’t complain but they’re very similar to the freedom lipsticks £1 (which i also love and you can get 5 in a set for £5) and great to build up a wide collection without breaking the bank
  • 12 shade palettes £4 - similar to sleek’s palettes £7.99 if you’ve ever tried them, quality wise similar to mur palettes (great pigmentation especially for the price) my faves are heaven and earth, undress me too, romantic efflorescence and spring break
  • luxe eyeshadow palette £8 - 10 shades/palette, all incredibly beautiful and pigmented, both palettes are gorgeous tbh and they’re paradise and utopia (like look at the pictures those shadows genuinely look like velvet)
  • eye brushes from £1.50 to £1.95 - their e4 eyeliner brush is so great, i’ve used it with gel liners before and it’s >>>> and their e7 eyebrow brush is great for powder and wax brow products and also the thin-ness (lmao) of the brush makes it great for gel eyeliner application also
  • face brushes from £1.95 to £5 - i don’t use many brushes outside of my morphe set atm but i do still use their f11 highlighting brush, it’s great for defined highlighting on the cheekbones
  • undress your skin highlighting powder £3 - i haven’t actually tried any of these but i’ve heard and noticed from swatches i did at superdrug they’re pretty much the exact same as the mur vivid baked highlighters £3 or £8 for a palette of all 3 colours (mua’s iridescent gold is the same as mur’s golden lights which is one of my fave highlighters ever tbh)

makeup revolution and sister company i heart makeup - do not test products or ingredients on animals, cannot claim products which are vegan friendly but are looking into it, ships worldwide

  • radiant lights highlighter £5 - i already mentioned their vivid baked highlighters which are a fave but,,, lemme tell you about radiant lights,,,, this shit saved me. no exaggeration one of the most beautiful highlighters i’ve used, like it has the most beautiful pearlescent finish, if you ever see my wearing highlight especially on my nose, aka most of my selfies bc this is my holy grail, i’m using this. it’s perfect for everyday natural looks and buildable for more glamorous looks and usable as a subtle all over highlight. i use exhale but i also have the radiant lights palette £8 and sometimes use the others over a matte bronzer and they’re gorgeous. the palette is an incredibly affordable alternative to the hourglass ambient lights palette £60 (!!!) and most of their products are styled as affordable dupes so
  • i heart makeup blushing hearts highlighters/blushes/bronzers £4.99 - dupes for too faced sweetheart blushes £24, my faves are goddess of love, peachy pink kisses and summer of love
  • face palettes £4 to £8 - blush, bronze, concealer and both powder and cream contour palettes, great for building up your makeup collection, all come with 8 shades. their ultra cream contour palette and ultra contour palette both £8 are very similar to the ABH contour kits £30, their golden sugar blush palette £6 is one of the prettiest palettes i own, all their blushes are incredibly pigmented and only need a super light hand so will last forever, their hot spice blush palette £4 is another fave. they also have concealer palettes £6 and a bronzer palette £6. 
  • ultra velour lip creams £3 - i have a few of these and i adore them, i would say they have a demi-matte/cream finish but they’re really hydrating and pigmented and i use the colour can’t we just make love instead pretty much all the time i take it everywhere with me
  • i heart makeup lip lava £2.99 - slightly comparable to too faced melted lipsticks £19, if you apply it sparingly and spread it, you can achieve a matte/demi-matte finish or if you put translucent powder over them, you can get a matte finish but otherwise, they’re liquid lipsticks and have a satin finish for the most part, i use the colours tremor and unleash
  • i heart makeup i tint my brows £1.99 - just a good tinted brow gel with a perfect sized brush, not a great colour selection but it does slightly darken my brows to give them a thicker look and has a better brush than certain drugstore brow gels (*cough* tf is up with the maybelline brow drama brush pls god)
  • pro fix makeup fixing spray £5 - highkey,,, i prefer this fixing spray to my mac fix+ £17, the smell is a lot more pleasant, and it leaves my foundation looking freshly applied all day like it genuinely looks perfect after like hours and hours of being outside like i went into town it ended up raining and i’d been walking in the rain for a good two hours tbh and i didn’t have an umbrella i was sticking to the sides of buildings in hope of shelter i got home and my face was like,,, honey u thought,, it was still full coverage and everything i was like damn!!! i use the normal one cos i have dry skin but there is one for oily skin too. 
  • brushes £1.99 to £9.99 - genuinely good brushes, don’t shed at all and are really soft, their e301 crease brush is an essential imo
  • eyeshadow palettes £1.50 to £8 - their £8 palettes have 32 shades (comparable to morphe’s 35 palettes but much smaller), my fave is flawless matte, their i heart makeup line has several takes on too faced’s chocolate bar palettes (original product priced at £39) for £7.99 and they also have urban decay naked palette (original products priced at £38.50) dupes for naked 1, naked 2, and naked 3 with 12 shades for £4 and like i’m not lying when i say they are reaaaaally similar to the real thing. they also have a dupe for the lorac pro palettes (original around £30 i could only find the price in $) so lorac pro 1 and lorac pro 2 dupes are £6.99
  • also if you sign up to their newsletter/email thing, they have new offers every week, and sometimes they have an offer where if you spend £30 on makeup, you get an extra £30 worth of makeup (already chosen by them) for free. they did it on black friday and back in september but you get so much considering how cheap they are

freedom makeup - does not test on animals, ships worldwide, from the makers of MUA and MUR so very similarly priced and styled, but targeted to a much more ~professional consumer

  • pro makeup essential artist kit £18 - includes a colour correcting kit, similar to the nyx 3c palette £10, mattifying primer, a highlighter, an eyebrow kit, an eye primer, a fixing spray and a contour powder duo. 
  • pro studio strobe cream £8 - just a really pretty liquid highlight tbh, you could probably get cheaper alternatives, like the nyx born to glow liquid illuminator £7
  • pro melts £3 - lip lacquers that come in the prettiest shades like sold out, no heroes and d-ream
  • pro lipstick collections 5 lipsticks for £5 - i have the bare collection, and they have the prettiest neutral shades, although if i’m honest, on the lips, they’re not that different from each other. they have nice packaging though, great for storage as you can see the colour on the bottom of the tube

elf - do not test on animals, do not ship worldwide but do ship to a wide variety of countries and have sites specific to different countries

  • hydrating under eye primer £4.50 - prevents under eye concealer from looking cakey and dependant on the concealer can reduce creasing. tbh is my second favourite to smashbox’s photo finish hydrating under eye primer £21
  • contouring blush and bronzing palette £4.50 - comparable to nars’ blush and bronzer duos £32
  • baked blush £4.50 - i don’t actually personally own a lot of elf stuff but my sister has this in pinktastic and it makes for such a pretty highlight

new york color / nyc - owned by a parent company that do test on animals, but apparently only do it when required by law (i think only when retailing in china) so do third party testing, idk if they ship worldwide but they do ship to a lot of places

  • liquid eyeliner £2.49 - one of my fave drugstore products ever tbh it’s great and lasts forever imo
  • expert last lip lacquer £3.99 - my fave is madison square mauve
  • smooch proof 24hr lip stain £3.99 - i have quite dry lips so i never used to wear lipsticks or anything, and i lived by this product for years through high school tbh 
  • nyc big bold bronzer £2.99 - it was probably the first bronzer i ever used and i loved it tbh

sonia kashuk - do not test on animals, sold in target who ships via borderfree to over 220 countries but not all

  • eye couture eye palette £14.98 - one of my fave matte palettes tbh, this and the sonia kashuk quads £9.99 are great eyeshadows imo but not the most affordable in comparison to the above brands
  • clear brow gel £4.37 - great for setting your brows if you’re using a powder or pencil (i use this when i’m using my brow whiz and the hairs stay in place all day and i don’t ever have like smudged lines or anything

individual products i love

  • milani baked blush (cruelty free, sold at target shipped via borderfree) £5.32 - i could yell all day about how much i love luminoso and dolce pink
  • collection lasting perfection concealer (cruelty free, only available in the uk as far as i know but could be on amazon) £4.19 - i wish this was available everywhere so y’all knew how great it is honestly i buy 2 whenever i run out of one it’s my holy grail the coverage is amazing, not so great under the eye unless mixed with a primer or moisturiser. their illuminating touch £4.99 would be good under the eyes and is comparable to maybelline dream lumi and l’oreal lumi magique
  • collection #blushandglow £4.99
  • collection eyebrow kit  £3.99 - before the brow whiz this was my fave brow product ever, comes with two brushes, a clear gel and three colours
  • colourpop, any product tbh $5 to $8 i believe (cruelty free and vegan with a few exceptions, only ships to a couple of countries but will hopefully expand or you can ship them through a courier, i used comgateway) i have the where the light is quad, the where the night is quad, lumiere lippie stix and lumiere lippie pencil - the pencils are a little creamier than i’d like but great for filling in the lip and incredibly long wearing
  • nyx soft matte lip creams £5.50 (cruelty free, idk if they ship worldwide but they’re available through a lot of retail stores) - my faves are amsterdam and sao paolo
  • barry m nail polishes £2.99 to £3.99 (cruelty free, ship worldwide but have restrictions on certain products) - my fave nail brand tbh, i own so many barry m nail polishes, mainly classic, glitterati and speedys, my fave ever shades are ballerina (classic) (pretty much my go to, i’ve repurchased twice, it’s my fave ever), starlet (glitterati), speed demon (speedy), lap of honour (speedy), get set go (speedy), berry cosmo (classic) and ruby slippers (classic)

What's your fav eyeshadow palette

Modern Renaissance I’m basic! The Lorac Mega Pro Palette 2 is one or my other most used and the Urban Decay Alice The Looking Glass is another but I’m pretty sure it was limited edition.

Also Anastasia Beverly Hill single in China Rose is a number one for me


Purple Reign.

I purchased a bunch of glitters from Violet Voss a while back and this is  my first chance to actually use them. I was amazed at how easily the products applied! I didn’t use very much product and I didn’t have a panic attack because I was getting glitter all over my room, so that’s great.

The Steps:

1)  Apply ‘Tangerine’ from the Lorac Mega Pro 2 palette to crease (or you can use  any orange)

2) Follow with ‘Saddle’ from the same palette (or any brown) 

3) Cover lid with Rimmel Scandaleyes eye shadow stick in ‘Blackmail’ 

4) Get rid of harsh lines using ‘Black’ from Lorac Mega Pro 2 and a crease brush

5) Cover lid with Violet Voss’ ‘Brooklyn’ Glitter Using adhesive

6) Draw line as shown using Color Tattoo by Eyestudio in Painted Purple

7) Apply Nyx Eye Pencil in ‘Purple’ to waterline

8) Smudge ‘Deep Purple’ from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Self- Made Palette into lower lash line to get rid of harsh lines

Additional Products Used:

Face: Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow- Ebony, Mac Studio Fix Foundation NC45, Face Studio Master Concealer in Medium 40, Ben Nye SK-3 Shadow Wheel, Ben Nye Banana Powder, Black Radiance Pressed Foundation Powder- Rich Mahogany and Ebony, and Mac Soft & Gentle Highlight

Eyelashes: Andrea 45 Black

Lips: Nyx Liquid Suede in ‘Amethyst’ , Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in ‘Abu Dhabi’ , and Nyx Eye Pencil in ‘Purple’ to create the perfect ombre
