Six Of The Best Primer Dupes UK

Six Of The Best Primer Dupes UK

Behind every perfect face full of makeup is a brilliant Primer. There are some crackers out there but at a price. Scrimp on cost but not performance with our Best Primer Dupes UK list...

1. Urban Decay Primer Potion* £17 from Debenhams Vs NYX HD Eyeshadow Base* £5.50 from Boots

Want your Eyeshadow to pop? Urban Decay Primer Potion is saviour of that task but for £££'s. Save yourself some money and snap up this NYX copycat.

2. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer* £26 from Boots Vs L'Oreal Infallible Primer* £7.99 from Superdrug

Smashbox are famous for their Photo Finish Primer, so can this L'Oreal Infallible one live up to it's hype. Hell yeah - and some! Seriously, your makeup ain't going anywhere with this underneath.

3. Benefit POREfessional* £24.50 from Boots Vs Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser* £7.99 from Superdrug

These are almost identical. When tested on half of the face - I couldn't tell the difference at all. As it good as it gets in the dupe world.

4. Tarte Timeless Smoothing Primer* £27.50 from QVC UK Vs L'Oreal Studio Secrets Resurfacing Primer* £14.99 from Very

A lot of bloggers and vloggers swear by this Tarte Primer so you know it's a top product. Unfortunately, it's only dupe out there is discontinued. However, it's pretty convincing.

5. Make Up For Ever Step 1 Mattifying Primer*£24 from Debenhams Vs Bourjois Happy Light Matte Serum Primer* £10.99 from Boots

There's one big difference between these two Primers - the Bourjois one has a strong smell. Performance wise, Make Up For Ever gives a better matte base but if you're on a tight budget then this Bourjois one will do just fine.

6. MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime CC Colour Correcting SPF 30/PA+++ Illuminate* £25 from Debenhams Vs NYX Professional Makeup Studio Perfect Primer - Lavender* £10 from Boots

Got redness to the skin? You'll be hard pushed to find a better primer than MAC's Cosmetics Prep + Prime CC. NYX have smashed it though with their Lavender Primer - Save yourself £15 and ditch the MAC for this fantastic Primer.
