BEAUTY gurus have found an affordable duplicate for one of Charlotte Tilbury’s best sellers.
Charlotte Tilbury is one of the biggest names in beauty.
The brand has a cult following that swears by the products.
One of the most popular products is Charlotte’s Magic Cream.
It’s so good it’s literally won awards for its long-term skin benefits like brightening, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and an overall smoother complexion.
The benefits are due to the “magic eight” of highly effective skin care ingredients such as vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, aloe vera and shea butter.
The Magic Cream is priced at a staggering $100 for a 50ml jar.
Luckily, some beauty experts scoured the stores to find an affordable duplicate.
IT’S A MIRACLE
Makeup artist Emma (@emmacmua) tested Revolution Beauty’s Pro Miracle Cream along with the Magic Cream to see if she’d found a scam.
In a TikTok, she applied the Miracle Cream to one side of her face and the Magic Cream to the other.
First she noticed that the Magic Cream was a bit thicker than the other.
But once she started working them into her skin, she said they felt very similar.
“Honestly, they feel the same way,” she said.
“I would recommend ten out of ten. If you want a bargain, go for it.”
Revolution Beauty’s Miracle Cream contains many of the same ingredients as the Magic Cream, including vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and shea butter.
People who have used the Miracle Cream have reported that wrinkles were reduced, their skin felt smoother and plumper, and they looked more radiant.
Best of all, a 50-milliliter jar is only $14.
It used to be a UK exclusive but has just made its US debut and the company claims to be selling a glass every six seconds.
For almost every quality beauty product, there’s a copycat product in the drugstore somewhere.
Kelly Strack has dedicated her TikTok to sharing beauty tips and scouting for scammers.
Recently she was able to find a near replica of the Urban Decay Vice Lip Bond Liquid Lipstick.
It promises moisture and a glossy shine that lasts all day and retails for $25 apiece.
Kelly said the Maybelline Superstay Vinyl Ink is basically a clone of the Urban Decay lipstick.
The Maybelline version offers the same qualities as the Urban Decay version but costs $9.
In one video, Kelly applied the dupe to half of her lip and the original to the other half.
“You’ll see that they’re pretty much identical in color,” she said on TikTok.
“Maybelline’s model is a hair darker, but once it dries you can hardly tell the difference,” added Kelly.
Six hours later, she called again and found that both lipsticks were still perfectly intact.
One shopper went beyond beauty and found a pair of $25 sandals at Target that are more comfortable and almost identical to a $90 pair.
