2. MAC Face and Body Foundation Dupe


The MAC Face and Body Foundation is one of the brand's bestsellers, but it costs £££'s. Taking the makeup down past your neck? Try this excellent NIP+FAB Foundation for £12.95, from Superdrug and save yourself a fortune. Coverage is light, but buildable to medium for both foundations.

3. Estee Lauder Double Wear Dupe

It takes a lot to compete with Estee Lauder Double Wear but this ColorStay Foundation by Revlon is a cracker and costs only £12.99. Not only does it cover every bit as well as Double Wear but it's long lasting too.

4. Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation Dupe

There isn't a lot between this Benefit Foundation and this Rimmel number. Both give a light to medium coverage with a fresh, dewy finish. If I am honest, the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation lasts longer on the skin and costs just £8.99.

5. Clarins Everlasting+ Foundation Dupe

There's a whopping £20.71 difference in these foundations. The Rimmel isn't an exact dupe and the finish is much nicer on the Clarins, but if you run out and you're skint, grab this Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation for £8.29, to tide you over.

6. Chanel Vitalumière Aqua Foundation Dupe

With Bourjois and Chanel owned by the same company, it's not surprising to find that these two foundations are rather alike. Both offer that 'second skin' look and for the price difference, the Bourjois Healthy Mix at just £10.99, is a great alternative.

7. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation Dupe

For that 'Insta-filter' look, you can't go wrong with the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. How does the L'Oreal Lumi Magique, at £10.99 compare? Slightly, heavier in coverage and not as long lasting, but the finish is spot on.

8. Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation Dupe

The Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation is the foundation to buy for that made up look. It's a 'night out' laster, and takes some beating. The NYX Invincible Fullest Coverage Foundation is one of the best dupes, I have ever come across. Don't just take my word for it... try it out for £11.50!

9. Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick Dupe

Skip the powder when you plump for either of these foundations. Maybelline give Bobbi Brown a run for their money with this easy-to-apply dupe. This Fit Me Stick will only set you back £8.99.

10. NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation Dupe

The NARS All Day Luminous Foundation offers full coverage with a matte but not flat finish. L'Oreal's Infallible Pro-Matte offering doesn't quite match the coverage, but it's as good an effort as you'll find for under £9. The finish is an impressive match though.
