Do your wallet a solid and sub in these affordable beauty products fresh from the FYP.

If you're anything like me, you've forked out more than you care to admit on makeup and skincare. But the price tag doesn't always reflect the quality and you can often pick up excellent dupes of cult fave products for a bloody steal. If you don't want to waste your time sorting the duds from the top tier dupes, look no further than TikTok.

I've stumbled across so many goodies thanks to the legends on that app. So, I thought I'd return the favour and round up the beauty dupes under 20 bucks that I've come across thanks to TikTok.


1. NARS Radiance concealer vs Maybelline Fit Me Concealer

💸 Saving: $27

The NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is a long wear best-selling concealer that receives rave reviews online. If you can't justify the price tag, the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer has been dubbed a top notch dupe that offers full coverage and will last all day long.

2. Urban Decay Setting Spray vs NYX Setting Spray

💸 Saving: $44.54

The Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray is a hot commodity among beauty buffs, but $55 is a little on the expenny side. If you want to lock your beat in place while keeping your skin glowing, TikTok suggests the NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray. It's a lightweight mist like the Urban Decay spray but for less than a third of the price.

3. Fenty Beauty Skin Tint vs The Ordinary Skin Tint

💸 Saving: $33.30

The Fenty Beauty Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint provides more coverage than a tinted moisturiser but is lighter than a foundation. While it is a fan-fave, a few people on TikTok have pointed out that The Ordinary's lightweight serum foundation is a convincing dupe. Not only is it cheap as chips, but it's also available in 21 shades compared to Fenty's 15 options.

4. Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturising Lip Colour Balm vs Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain Honey

💸 Saving: $17.05

Similar to the Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturising Lip Colour Balm, the Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain Lip is a good option when you want to give your lips a pop of colour but keep them moisturised. The Revlon lippy may not contain shea butter and mango extract but it works just as well and is almost half the price.

5. Fenty Gloss Bomb vs Maybelline Lifter Gloss

💸 Saving: $22.53

If you wanna get that Gloss Bomb look for less, TikTok swears by the Maybelline Lifter Gloss. It's formulated with hyaluronic acid, which hydrates and smooths your lips. Like the Fenty Gloss Bomb, it has an XL wand for easy application and is available in a mix of shimmery shades.

6. M.A.C Ruby Woo lipstick vs Flower Beauty Petal Pout lipstick

💸 Saving: $27

So it turns out that everyone's fave red lipstick has a $9 dupe. The Flower Beauty Petal Pout Lip Colour is apparently a solid dupe for M.A.C's iconic Ruby Woo Lipstick. I haven't tried this particular shade but I can vouch that Flower Beauty is amazing and one of my go-to pharmacy beauty brands.

7. Glossier Cloud Paint vs MCoBeauty Lip & Cheek Tint

💸 Saving: $88

Not only is Glossier a little exxy, it's also really hard to get your hands on in Australia. If you don't have $100 to spend on blush or lip stain, TikTok recommends using the MCoBeauty Lip and Cheek. A TikTok user tried 1 of each product on her cheeks and I honestly could not tell the difference.
