The formulas and colors of luxury makeup are ~gorgeous~. But they come with a price—a BIG one—and most of the time they're not easily available to us. Luckily, the Korean beauty industry is all about combining quality with low prices.
Here, we have 10 popular makeup products—which come from brands like Tom Ford and Urban Decay—and their affordable and just-as-good Korean counterparts.
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner
Dupe: Clio Waterproof Brush Liner, P825, Trinoma
Both are easy to use, have brush tips, jet black pigmentation, and their own groups of fans. The only difference is Clio's is more wallet-friendly!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz
Dupe: Holika Holika Wonder Drawing Skinny Eyebrow, P395, The SM Store
The brow pencil is just as thin and delivers the same natural effect as the OG.
Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Cushion Foundation
Dupe: Laneige BB Cushion_Pore Control, P1,950, Robinsons Magnolia
This foundation provides long-lasting coverage because of its oil control system that blurs pores and imperfections, while refreshing your complexion!
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
Dupe: 3CE Pink I'm Good Mascara, P1,195, Sephora.ph
This mascara curls and volumizes for a doll-eyed look, just like Better Than Sex!
Sephora Collection Rouge Lip Tint
Dupe: Labiotte Wine Lip Tint, P640, Althea
A lip tint that gives a "just bitten" effect and is both lightweight and pigmented.
YSL Touche Éclat
Dupe: Banila Co. So Strobing Pen, P865, Landmark Trinoma
The Touche Éclat is famous for giving skin a subtle lit-from-within look—but it'll cost you serious $$$. Good thing Banila Co. came out with a similar version that you can use all over your face and under your eyes!
Benefit The POREfessional
Dupe: Innisfree No Sebum Blur Primer, P608.87, Innisfreeworld.com
This primer fills in pores, blurs out any imperfections, and controls oil. It sounds exactly like the POREfessional, right? ;)
Tom Ford Eye Quad in Cocoa Mirage
Dupe: The Face Shop Signature Eyes in Cashew Brown, P995, Shangri-La Plaza
From the packaging and the size of the shadows, to the brushes included in the palette, there's no doubt The Face Shop's quad took inspo from the cult fave!
Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Sticks
Dupe: Etude House Play 101 Blending Pencils, P478, Greenbelt 4
They have a range of neutral shades that are just as creamy and long-wearing, but are oh so affordable!
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
Dupe: Etude House Proof 10 Eye Primer, P298, SM Megamall
For anyone who says drugstore primers don't work, please try this one.
