We all like a dupe right? Last year it was all about Aldi candles and Jo Malone candles this year it is all about make up and the best makeup dupes. I was recently sent the Avon set which includes Avon’s smarter beauty money savings makeup range. These makeup dupes include foundation, eyeshadows and a lip colour.
Research shows that a woman will spend up to £22,000 on make-up products in her lifetime which works out at almost £366 a year*. With this in mind, Avon knows that when it comes to beauty, being smart with how much you spend is just as important as the quality of your products. We all know that here at Mums Savvy Savings we are always looking to make our money go further. We like a bargain and we like getting the most for our money iwhich includes these best makeup dupes.
Proving that premium beauty doesn’t have to come with a premium price tag, Avon has put beauty heavyweight MAC to the test.
Creating one unique beauty look, using eight similar products from each brand, Avon’s latest Smarter Beauty campaign shows you that by opting for the Avon face, you get great quality, the ultimate in staying power AND you could save yourself £135, adding almost £300 to your wallet EVERY YEAR*.
MAC is often the brand we associate with high quality makeup but it does come with a high price tag and I wanted to see if you get more for your money if you spend more.
Therefore I put the products to the test and vlogged myself doing so. I have rosacea and really wanted to see if it covered my redness. Watch the vlog to see!
After I had put the best makeup dupes through their paces I continued to wear them for the rest of the day to see if they had staying power. My favourite product was the lipstick. Despite questioning the brightness I had so many compliments during the day. I also find that lipstick does not last very long on me, I am constantly reapplying. However this lipstick absolutely stayed put. It lasted for hours which I was not expecting and I was very pleased with the results.
I wore it again last night and it stayed on all evening without reapplying.
Here is me with a full face of the best makeup dupes.
What do we think? Would you swap your makeup and try Avon based on this? I’d also love to know what other dupes you love.
