If you’ve ever perused the beauty tag on Pinterest then you know that makeup dupes are extremely popular on the site. As much as I love a good makeup or beauty dupe, not all of the dupes mentioned are golden. How many times can I say “dupe” in this post? I thought it would be fun to test out some Pinterest makeup dupes and see if the two products really are interchangeable or if they are as different as night and day.

5 Pinterest Makeup Dupes Tested

NYX Soft Spoken vs Kat Von D Lolita II

No. No. Definitely Not. These are not dupes. I could tell simply from the packaging that they’re not the same. NYX Soft Spoken is more of a pinky brown nude while Kat Von D Lolita II is more of a terra-cotta shade. I even compared it to Kat Von D Lolita and they’re still not dupes. Lolita is much more brown and super matte while NYX Soft Spoken never dries fully matte.

Wet n Wild Sugar Plum Fairy vs MAC Rebel

Yes! I did a post on Wet n Wild Sugar Plum Fairy being a dupe for MAC Rebel a couple years ago. They definitely are! MAC Rebel is more creamy, but they’re both a beautiful plum berry shade. They’re perfect for fall, which will be here soon enough!

NYX HD Concealer vs MAC Pro Longwear Concealer

Maybe. The NYX HD Concealer is a little harder to blend out and not quite as creamy plus the packaging is completely different from the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer. But, they are both full coverage. I’d say they’re not complete dupes, but the NYX HD Concealer is a good alternative since it’s much cheaper.

L’Oreal Amber Rush vs MAC Tan Pigment

MAC Tan Pigment Dupe

Yes! Although I think the MAC Tan pigment is a tad bit more pigmented, L’Oreal’s Amber Rush is basically the same exact color! They both give a beautiful bronzey rose gold metallic look to the eye, and I love them both so much.

NYX Liquid Illuminator Sunbeam vs Benefit High Beam

Maybe. NYX Sunbeam is a darker pink toned liquid highlighter and has more sparkle to it while Benefit High Beam is a milkier pink. Personally, I like the NYX highlighter better. It blends beautifully since the formula is creamier, and looks seamless on my skin. I find High Beam to look a little patchy. They’re not exact dupes, but if you have one you certainly don’t need the other.
