5 Dupes Of Your Favourite Celebrity’s Go-To Beauty Products

Untitled design (12)

Most of you will unanimously agree with me when I say that celebrities are OG influencers. I mean, I know de-influencing is having its moment right now but there have been plenty of times when I’ve seen my favourite celebrity sport a distinct look or use a specific beauty product and immediately wanted to try it out for myself. As much as I love a good splurge on beauty products, this economy doesn’t let me do that!

Luckily, there’s a possible dupe for every luxury cult product out there. So you don’t need to burn a hole in your pocket if you want a lipstick that Alia Bhatt owns or want to smell exactly like Deepika Padukone. Here are dupes of the beauty products celebrities enjoy using.

Alia Bhatt

Product: Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution in Pillow Talk

Dupe: Maybelline New York SuperStay Ink Crayon in Lead The Way

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution in Pillow Talk & Maybelline New York SuperStay Ink Crayon in Lead The Way

If there’s one lipstick that’s been a cult favourite ever since it launched, it has to be Charlotte Tilbury’s Matte Revolution lipstick in Pillow Talk. Loved by celebrity makeup artists and celebrities worldwide this lipstick is a universal shade of pink that flatters every skin tone. Yes, it doesn’t wash out at all! So naturally, when Alia Bhatt sported an ultra-minimal makeup look at her wedding, the Internet demanded a breakdown. Her makeup artist Puneet B Saini revealed that she used Pillow Talk.

The lipstick retails for ₹3150 which can burn a hole in your pocket. The Maybelline New York SuperStay Ink Crayon in Lead The Way is an exact dupe, in a very similar formula. It’s a creamy matte lipstick which doesn’t dry out the lips and is also long-lasting. Three meals or more, kisses and long days—it stays through it all.


Product: Invisimatte Instant Setting + Blotting Powder

Dupe: NYX Professional Makeup Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Mattifying Powder

Fenty Beauty Invisimatte Instant Setting + Blotting Powder & NYX Professional Makeup Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Mattifying Powder

While everybody’s eyes were fixated on Rihanna’s riveting SuperBowl performance, beauty freaks like me were only noticing how she retouched her makeup with Fenty Beauty’s Invisimatte Instant Setting + Blotting Powder. When #BadGalRiri uses a product, you know it’s worth every penny. This setting powder promises a matte finish while blurring out pores. As dreamy as it sounds, this powder doesn’t retail in India and calling it from abroad is expensive.

Luckily for us, we have a dupe in NYX Professional Makeup’s Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Mattifying Powder. This one comes with an oil-absorbing rice powder formula which performs exactly like its Fenty Beauty counterpart.

Kim Kardashian

Product: La Mer Moisturising Cream

Dupe: Mario Badescu Seaweed Night Cream

La Mer Moisturizing Cream & Mario Badescu Seaweed Night

Not only Kim Kardashian, but almost every celebrity out there can’t stop raving about the luxurious La Mer Moisturising Cream. But let’s be honest, this moisturiser’s price point will cost you an arm and a leg. Even though it doesn’t retail in the country, it costs a whopping Rs. 2,00,000 and above for a full-size bottle. This intensely moisturising cream is meant for drier skin types, and its barrier-building formula features a Miracle Broth, something that is unique to La Mer. With sea kelp or seaweed that is bio-fermented, this cream infuses deep moisture and gets rid of dry and flaky patches.

With an unrealistic price point, the dupe saves the day! Say hello to Mario Badescu’s Seaweed Night Cream which contains ingredients like seaweed extract, collagen and elastin—together which moisturise extra dry skin and improve its texture too.

Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush in Believe

Dupe: LoveChild by Masaba Band Baaja Blush in Bubblegum Baraat

Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush & Lovechild by Masaba Band Baaja Blush

2022’s favourite viral makeup product, Rare Beauty’s Soft Pinch Liquid Blush is something we always see Selena Gomez using. This blush has often been sold out which isn’t a surprise because its formula and pigment both are impeccable. Just a drop of the shade believe is enough to give you the prettiest flush of colour that looks healthy and natural. It also blends seamlessly with or without makeup, making it a makeup must-have.

Through my love for liquid blushes, I discovered that the newly launched Band Baaja Blush in the shade Bubblegum Baraat from LoveChild by Masaba comes very close to this one. With intense pigment that also blends beautifully, this blush features a buildable formula. A little product goes a long way with this tiny tube.

Deepika Padukone

Product: Narciso Rodriguez For Her

Dupe: Zara Bright Rose

Narciso Rodriguez For Her & Zara Bright Rose

Ever since our global icon Deepika Padukone’s favourite perfume was revealed to be Narciso Rodriguez’s For Her, the scent has been out of stock on multiple platforms. A feminine and musky scent which has notes of roses, and peaches along with musk and patchouli, this scent is a head-turner for sure. Now, who wouldn’t want to smell like Deepika all day long?

Finding an exact dupe to perfumes can be a little tricky owing to the different notes present in them, however, after lots of hunting we’ve come across a similar scent in Zara’s Bright Rose. This fragrance features notes of rose, patchouli and cinnamon making it a close match.
