Just over a year ago, I was in love with a very expensive lip balm. It cost £25 and was such a luxury purchase! However it was worth every penny; my lips felt amazing when I used it and lipsticks applied like a dream over the top. I am talking about the Dior Lip Glow. This was a firm favourite for a really long time.
However, a year down the line I have found an identical dupe. Elf has flown over from the states (probably running away from Trump) and landed in Superdrug stores across the country.
I saw their lip scrubs and lipsticks, which I also love, but what has really impressed me is the Gotta Glow Lip Tint. This cost me £4.50 and product wise, looks identical to my old favourite.
This is a lip balm that also tints the lips slightly with a rosy your lips but better shade. The Dior one also does this, which was one of the reasons that I loved it. I could get away with wearing just this on no makeup days. It looked really subtle. With the Elf tinted balm, you get a bit more colour to the lips, although it is very similar.
The formula is just as nourishing and feels just as luxurious. Yes the packaging is basic, but for £4.50, I don’t really care about pretty packaging. I just want a product that works.
I am so glad to have found a dupe for that lip balm. I absolutely love this and will purchase it again once this bullet runs out.
What amazing dupes have you found lately?
