Let’s face it, dupes are just as good as the real thing.
TikTok is great at showing us expensive products that we probably don’t need and can’t afford, but it’s also great at showing us dupes for all these viral products. If you’re someone who’s easily influenced but on a budget this Black Friday, we’ve got you as we’ve put together all the best dupes you need to try out this year.
Not only will you be saving money by buying the dupe product instead of the real thing, but you’ll also score some extra savings thanks to the Black Friday sales. Who needs a real pair of Uggs when you can buy 4 things for the price of one?
The e.l.f. Halo Glow highlighter is a dupe of the Charlotte Tilbury beauty light wand which is perfect for the girls on a budget. For just £9 (without a discount!) it’s a bargain when you consider the Charlotte Tilbury one will set you back £30. It comes in 3 shades, Champagne Campaign, Rose Quartz and Liquid Gold which will suit a range of skin tones and give you a flawless glow all day long.
Another Charlotte Tilbury dupe? You bet! The Halo Glow Liquid Filter is a dupe for Hollywood Flawless Filter and costs a fraction of the price of the original. It comes in 12 shades to suit a range of skin tones and undertones and can be used as alone, under makeup, as a highlighter or mixed with foundation. It will give you a beautiful glow and radiant dewy skin for a glam everyday makeup look.
Whether you already have one pair of Uggs and can’t keep up with all the new styles or you can’t bare to part with the money for a real pair, Ego has some great dupes. These Ugg Tasman dupes would originally cost you £27 but during Black Friday you’ll be able to score them for just £18.90 if you’re quick! You might as well buy two pairs.
Want to try the Dior lip oil but don’t want to part with the money? The Nyx fat oil lip drip is the perfect alternative. Not only is it way cheaper, but it also comes in 8 shades ranging from clear, to pink and brown shades. If you want a long-lasting and hydrating lip oil you can easily grab a few shades without breaking the bank.
You don’t need a Dyson Airwrap. However, if you’ve been sucked in by the endless TikToks showing you how easy it is to curl or dry your hair with minimal heat, you probably need the Shark Flexstyle instead. For half the price of the Dyson, the Flexstyle does pretty much the exact same thing. You also customise yours by choosing which attachments you need for your specific hair type and can enjoy the same technology as the Dyson to auto-curl your hair with minimal effort.
If you don’t want to spend loads of money on smelling good, the Artiscent Atelier Eau De Parfum in the Musk Doré scent is a common dupe of the Paco Rabanne One Million aftershave. While the original costs £48 for a small bottle, this dupe is just £11.99 (without student discount!) which is a bargain.
Don’t waste your money on the original Stanley Cup when you could buy this dupe from Amazon for a fraction of the price instead! With all the same features it’s perfect for staying hydrated throughout the day.
The Uniqlo bag took the internet by storm, but if you’re on a budget this dupe from Amazon is just £3.99! This is the perfect everyday bag for carrying your phone, keys and wallet and can easily be worn for any occasion.
Don’t forget you can get loads of big student discounts this Black Friday using your Student Beans account!
