I decided to start a new series called dupe alert. I show you an inexpensive version of a popular high end product. It's always a great thing when you can get a cheaper option that's just as good. The first post in this series has to do with a popular blush from MAC. Check it out!
I love MAC Gingerly Blush. It's a peachy brownish color that looks good with any makeup look. I saw YouTube guru BeatFaceHoney use it in a video and I was sold. Then a few months ago I reviewed a new blush sent to me by Iman. I fell in love with it and it even made a favorites video.
The Iman Luxury Blushing Duo in shade allure actually comes with two shades but I happen to swirl them together to come up with a great balance between the two. Then suddenly, it hit me that it makes a great dupe for MAC's gingerly blush.
As you can see, Gingerly is on the left and Allure is on the right. Pretty similar right? On the cheeks it's pretty identical.
And the best part is that the Iman version retails for $11 while the MAC version is $21. I actually prefer the versatility behind the Iman Duo. You essentially have 3 color options - each shade individually or a new shade swirled together.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post. More to come. If you have any great dupes, let us know in the comments below!
