10 Primer Dupes

10 Primer Dupes for all you ladies! Do you like to wear primer? I usually wear it only when I’m going to have a long day, instead of just 4-6 hours. I’m one of those girls who likes to take their makeup off as soon as I get home and I know I don’t have to go back out. It’s good for your skin to breathe!

I have  an uneven skintone and some issues with large pores around my nose, so I usually use a color correcting primer or a clear one that will fill in my pores. My current favorite is the Smashbox Photo Finish, but I’ve been meaning to pick up the Monistat Chaffing Gel since I’ve heard SO much about it and am damn curious to see if it works. It is supposed to be a gel with a powder finish, and that sounds about perfect for my skin. I like to use my elf Studio Tone Correction Powder over my foundation to make sure there is no more redness peaking through.

Let me know what your favorite primer dupes are!

5 MAC Eyeshadow Dupes!

5 MAC Eyeshadow Dupes

5 MAC Eyeshadow Dupes

I’m a huge fan of drugstore eyeshadows. Not only do they save a ton of money, but a lot of them are so similar it’s near impossible to tell them apart when you see a swatch side by side. I haven’t tried a CoverGirl eyeshadow in so long, but the swatch for Vanilla/French Vanilla was so close I had to include it. I swear by the WnW eyeshadows– just not their new matte line with the bold colors! Those ones are quite chalky. I prefer to use some sort of primer/base for my eyes- it helps the color pop, stops creasing, and prolongs the wear. I’m allergic to the Maybelline Color Tattoos (just found this out a few weeks ago…) and I’m now on the hunt for a new fav base. What’s yours?

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Dupes

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Dupes via LipstickDupe

I love the new Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks just as much as the next girl, but at $22 a pop? Maybe not so much. For me the formula is really soft and winds up rubbing off on everything. (For those of you who are a bit more technical: It transfers. A lot. On everything.) I thought maybe adding a liner underneath would help, and even went as far as adding a little powder eyeshadow over the top and it still moved around during the day.
But hey, these are fast becoming a holy grail for so many that maybe it’s just me. Let me know in the comments!

Links are to swatches so you can see the true colors! (not affiliate)

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Anarchy Dupe Milani Raspberry Rush

Urban Decay Anarchy dupe Milani Raspberry Rush

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Anarchy Dupe NYX Matte Shocking Pink

or NYX Matte Shocking Pink. This one is pretty close. I’m not going to lie to you guys, it isn’t perfect by a long shot. But, like the second Naked 2 dupe below, it’s close enough that if you already own the NYX one you might want to splurge on a different color than something you already (almost) own.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Naked 2 Dupe Wet N Wild Fergie Daily

Urban Decay Naked 2 dupe Wet N Wild Fergie Perfect Pout Fergie Daily

Some say Wet N Wild Bare It All but I don’t think it’s very close when you swatch it. It’s decently close, so if you already own it you can rock it.

or Wet n Wild Fergie VI Pink, but it is a pretty big difference. Look up some swatches and see if it is close enough for you to rock!

Radiant Orchid Lips for 2014

2014 Color of the Year Radiant Orchid in Lipsticks

Happy New Year!

First things first, a HUGE thank you to everyone who is reading this! I started Lipstick Dupe this summer and never in my wildest dreams imagined that by New Year’s I would have over 500 people visit my blog every day! You are all amazing and I can’t wait to see what 2014 will bring! Now for the Radiant Orchid Lips I know you’re here for!

If you are here from Pinterest–> Welcome! Follow along for more posts like this! 

 I have been so excited to share with you Pantone’s Color of the Year in lipstick! 2014 is the year of Radiant Orchid!

“An invitation to innovation, Radiant Orchid encourages expanded creativity and originality, which is increasingly valued in today’s society. An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®

Sounds good to me! Joy, love, health, and creativity? I hope you’re as excited as I am! But wait until you hear what it means for beauty:

“A modern and surprisingly versatile shade, Radiant Orchid enlivens the skin, making all who wear it feel more healthy and energetic. Blending both cool and warm undertones, purple is an appealing hue for distinctive combinations and flattering to many hair, eye and skin tones.
This multifaceted hue is seductive when combined with red and pairs well with its sister shades of lavender, purple and pink, which provides an assortment of lipstick and blush options. Radiant Orchid’s exuberance also acts as a brilliant finishing touch to nails.”

Luckily for us, this year Pantone chose to go with a color that is much easier for you and I to pull off comfortably. Last year was Emerald, and 2011 was Tangerine Tango. Both were bold, bright, in-your-face colors and limited the choices for lipstick shades unless we’re brave enough to rock LimeCrime’s incredible Opaque Lipstick line. (Ok, Tangerine Tango is a pretty rockin’ lipstick color. But Emerald?)

Radiant Orchid is surprisingly easy to pull off, and there are already so many brands that offer the color in their permanent lines. Here’s a sampling of the shades that are about to be must-haves!
