10 Dupes For Favourite International Makeup Products That Are Not In India


We’ve all grown up watching Bethany Mota and Zoe Sugg’s makeup tutorials with them using their holy grail makeup products. Be it the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette or the NARS Orgasm blush, we’ve long pestered our relatives living abroad to fly them in for us. Unfortunately, these and many more cult favourites have still not made their way to India. So, we found makeup dupes that are locally available and work just as well, to keep you engaged till your next trip abroad!

Fenty Gloss Bomb- Fenty Glow

Dupe: Maybelline Lifter Gloss- Topaz

While Rihanna’s beauty brand took the world and TikTok by storm, we were left wanting. However, Maybelline’s recent launch of their Lifter Glosses adds a similar high shine to our lips. Their Topaz shade, in particular, is a close dupe of the Fenty Glow-both are shimmery nudes with a rosy brown undertone.

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder

Dupe: Kay Beauty HD Setting Loose Powder

The Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder has undoubtedly been in every makeup guru’s vanity. Luckily for us, Katrina Kaif’s HD Setting Loose Powder offers a similar experience. Both have a unique quality of reducing the appearance of lines and blurring uneven skin texture.

NARS Orgasm blush

Dupe: Flower Beauty Flower Pots Powder Blush – Warm Hibiscus

NARS’ Orgasm blush is a universally loved shade because of its peachy pink undertone and subtle shimmer that suits every skin tone. Although we can’t wait for the brand to foray into the Indian beauty market, Flower Beauty’s Flower Pots Powder Blush in the shade Warm Hibiscus comes very close to it.

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

Dupe: L’Oreal Infallible Full Wear Concealer

From their huge doe-foot applicator to their formula, the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer and the L’Oreal Infallible Full Wear Concealer are almost identical. The latter offers a similar stay and finish as the cult-favourite Shape Tape from Tarte. No doubt the two are the best-selling products of their respective brands.

Rare Beauty Positive Light Liquid Luminizer- Enchant

Dupe: Swiss Beauty Drop And Glow Liquid Highlighter- Light Pink

Makeup lovers all over the world have accepted Selena Gomez’s beauty brand, Rare Beauty, with open arms. As much as we’d like to be a part of this, we’re bound by our borders and of course, import duty and customs! However, Swiss Beauty’s Drop And Glow Liquid Highlighter in the shade Light Pink comes to the rescue. Both have a soft pink undertone and offer a buildable glow, and the dupe is available for a much cheaper price.

Farsali Skintune Perfecting Serum

Dupe: Makeup Revolution Liquid Powder Pore Blurring Makeup Serum

Farsali’s Skintune Blur is a real-life blurring filter for the skin with a unique primer + serum formula, much like the Makeup Revolution Liquid Powder Makeup Serum. Both are lightweight and comfortable on the skin, minimise the appearance of pores, and get rid of excess oil.

Milk Makeup Cream Blush + Lip Tint

Dupe: SUGAR Cosmetics Face Fwd Blush Stick- Pink Prime

Milk Makeup’s cheek and lip tint in the shade Werk is a buildable and blendable peachy rose shade. To get the same look, SUGAR Cosmetic’s Face Fwd Blush Stick in the shade Pink Prime offers the right pop of colour.

Patrick Ta Major Glow Body Oil- Bronze

Dupe: The Body Shop Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil

Patrick Ta and The Body Shop both offer products that leave your skin moisturised while giving it a warm glow. They are non-greasy, add a hint of shimmer and enhance the natural tan of your skin.

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

Dupe: E.l.f Cosmetics Stay All Night Setting Mist

No international makeup tutorial video ends without a spritz of the much beloved Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. It is believed to melt makeup into the skin and make it look seamless while setting it in place. E.l.f Cosmetics’ Stay All Night Setting Mist is longwear – upto 16 hours – and is equally lightweight. And it’s a pretty exacting dupe.

Glossier Lash Slick Mascara

Dupe: Wet n Wild Mega Length Mascara

This fan favourite has an identical twin! While the Glossier Lash Slick Mascara offers maximum definition and water-resistance, so does the Wet n Wild Mega Length Mascara. The secret to the two is in the wands that coat each eyelash from root to tip.
