Vegan Beauty Dupes for Cult Beauty Classics
As a way to mark Veganuary, we thought it would be good to give you guys some Vegan dupes for some cult beauty classics. These vegan beauty products are great alternatives to a few of the big mainstream faves. We want to help you guys make the transition to green and vegan beauty as easy as possible and show you that there is a whole world of green beauty out there that doesn’t mean a compromise on products, quality or formulas.
Ere Perez Beetroot Lip and Cheek Tint as a dupe for Benefit’s Bene-tint Lip and Cheek Colour
Starting off with a dupe that is almost the same as the mainstream version. The Ere Perez Lip and Cheek Tint is a great vegan alternative to the Benetint from Benefit Cosmetics. Both products are multi-use as they are both intended to be applied on the cheeks and lips. Both products have a liquid formula that stays put for a long time, with a vibrant colour pay-off. One thing that is different with these products is the applicator. The Ere Perez offers a doe-foot as opposed to a brush, giving you more accuracy with your application. The Beetroot Lip and Cheek Tint is available in two shades, ‘Joy’, a cherry red and ‘Fun’, a fuchsia pink.
Couleur Caramel Perfect Complexion Concealer as a dupe for YSL Touché Eclat
Everyone has heard of the Touché Eclat from YSL, known for its ability to brighten areas of the face and disguise dark circles. The Couleur Caramel Perfect Complexion Concealer is a great alternative because it does everything the Touché Eclat claims whilst being Vegan-Friendly and Organic. With the same twist-up packaging and brush applicator, this is a very comparable vegan beauty dupe. The Couleur Caramel Perfect Complexion Concealer is available in 3 highlighting shades to cover imperfections and highlight the face.
Couleur Caramel 263 ‘Deep Red’ as a dupe for MAC Ruby Woo Lipstick
MAC Ruby Woo is one of those iconic lipsticks that every beauty addict has heard of, a true red that will suit everyone. If you are wanting a vegan alternative, we recommend Couleur Caramel’s Deep Red (263), the shade is almost an exact match to Ruby Woo with an intense red tone with a blue base. The lipsticks from Couleur Caramel are long lasting with intense pigment. They are also cheaper than the MAC lipsticks so this is a great dupe all-round.
BYBI Babe Balm as a dupe for Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream
If you are looking for a vegan multi-use balm, similar to the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream, look no further than the BYBI Babe Balm! This balm can be used anywhere to add a dose of hydration and moisture. It can be used on dry skin, nails and cuticles, as a lip balm or even as a glossy highlighter - the list is endless. Much like 8 Hour Cream, BYBI’s Babe Balm is multi-use with endless possibilities and is a must-have in anyone’s beauty stash. The main difference between these two products is that BYBI’s offering is 100% Natural, Cruelty-Free and Vegan, making it a no brainer to rotate this wonder balm into your routine.
Evolve Beauty Gentle Cleansing Melt as a dupe for Clinique Take The Day Off Balm
Most skincare junkies have heard of Clinique’s Take The Day Off Balm as a must-have first cleanse product to remove makeup and daily grime. The Evolve Beauty Gentle Cleansing Melt is a fab alternative to Clinique because it does exactly the same thing whilst being Vegan-Friendly and slightly cheaper too. The Gentle Cleansing Balm contains ingredients such as, Baobab Seed Oil, Sweet Almond Seed Oil and Sunflower Seed Oil to cleanse the skin and leave it feeling hydrated after use. The Gentle Cleansing Melt from Evolve Beauty makes the first cleanse step a breeze as it easily melts away makeup and daily impurities. It comes packaged in a recyclable, glass jar.
Sappho Mascara as a dupe for Benefit They’re Real Mascara
They’re Real Mascara is one of the Benefit’s most well-known products because it gives a volumized, false lash effect. Sappho’s Mascara is a great alternative to Benefit’s They’re Real. Sappho’s Mascara gives lashes volume, length and definition with a formula that is suitable for sensitive eyes. The main difference between these two mascaras is the fact that Sappho’s is formulated with the highest quality natural and organic ingredients whilst also being Vegan. Despite the full coverage jet black formula, the Sappho Mascara is easily removed with just water - no scrubbing or rubbing at the delicate eye area, yet another reason why this mascara is amazing!
We hope our Vegan beauty dupes opened your eyes to the world of Vegan and Green Beauty. These are just some of the many alternatives to mainstream brands that are better for you and the environment. As beauty lovers, we don’t have to compromise our ethics to enjoy modern formulas, textures and shades.
