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.

Milk Makeup Blur Stick

Okay so let me start off by saying, I thought this would be the weirdest product known to man. 

The product description on this item is: The universal face filter. Silicone-free Blur Stick minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines to create a smooth, matte finish. Invisible matte coverage blurs pores and fine lines on every skin tone. Swipe for a smooth finish and makeup that doesn’t budge. Silicone-Free & Oil-Free formula won’t clog pores so skin can breathe. This product is vegan. All Milk Makeup products are cruelty-free

My review: I put it on after prepping my face with my UD prep spray and Farsali Unicorn tears. all i can say is… GOODBYE PORES!!! This product is a new holy grail. I have fairly large pores and this makes them nearly invisible. I was shocked. I actually use this product as a base and apply my primer over this product. The Blur Stick is silicone free which is great compared to benefit porefessional. honestly. for $36 i recommend everyone have this in their makeup bag. its amazing. Great job Milk Makeup!
