“It girl” product dupes

As new trends are on the rise, so are the prices; check out these dupes to save some money.
Aaliyah Lizak

Stanley Cups have gradually shown up throughout the past year. They come in multiple colors and are quite expensive for a water bottle. Every “it girl” has one of these water bottles to keep themselves hydrated and it would be a shame to miss out on this dupe.

Dupe: Simple Modern 40 oz tumbler
FUNUS 40oz Tumbler $17.99


Charlotte Tilbury has taken over every makeup guru’s life. They provide an assortment of makeup and skincare products. In my opinion, I think these prices are outrageous for makeup and there are many different products out there to save your bank account.

Dior Lip Glow Oil has become the new way to moisturize your lips, all the coquette girlies depend on Dior Lip Oil. Lip oil is a moisturizing tinted lip gloss that does not actually leave a tint like it advertises. Dior is a designer brand so it comes with a designer price. They have many dupes for Dior Lip Oil, but the most similar is sold at Walmart for $7.59

Dior Lip Glow Oil $38

Sea-Maid Lip Gloss Hydrating Lip Oil $7.59

Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum cream is advertised as a fast-absorbing body cream that helps tighten skin: The smell of this lotion is addicting, I own this myself and can not stop using it. I love this lotion but there are definitely better alternatives out there for a cheaper price. The OGX body lotion is rumored to smell very similar if not the same as the Bum Bum cream. Another famous product of theirs is a body mist (Brazilian Crush Cheirosa ‘62) that smells the same as the Bum Bum cream which is mainly salted Caramel and vanilla, the dupe for this body mist can be found at Urban Outfitters.
Brazilian Bum Bum Body Cream $48

OGX Extra Creamy + Coconut Miracle Oil Ultra Moisture Body Lotion $13.15

Sol de Janeiro salted Caramel body mist
Brazilian Crush Cheirosa ’62 Bum Bum Hair & Body Fragrance Mist $ 38
Gourmand Eau De Parfum Fragrance $25

Lululemmon is known for their comfortable and adorable active wear and accessories, they are also known for their outrageous prices. Recently, the Everywhere Belt Bag has taken the world by storm, and every “it girl” uses them for their Target runs. DHgate provides almost the same item with logo and all for only $7.59 but it may take a few weeks to arrive once ordered. Another popular product of Lululemmon is their Scuba Hoodies; personally, I think there is nothing special about this hoodie and you can get the same exact product on Amazon for a reasonable price.
Everywhere Belt Bag $38

Luxury lulu fanny pack everywhere belt Bag $7.59

Scuba Oversized Half Zip Hoodie $118

Tmustobe Women′s Half Zip Hoodie $36

Olaplex is a line of intense repair hair products that are full of protein to strengthen heat-damaged and colored hair. One of Olaplex’s more popular products is their hair moisture mask. Olaplex is expensive and over-rated, you can get the same amount of product and result from Elizavecca cer-100 hair mask for only $7.62.

No. 8 Bond Intense Moisture Hair Mask $30

Elizavecca cer-100 collagen coating hair protein treatment 100ml $7.62

The Ugg brand has been around since 1978 and has fallen in and out of trends for as long as I can remember. Ugg is known for their high quality and incredibly soft shoes. The Australian brand has always had extremely expensive prices that not everyone can afford. Lately, many people have fallen back in love with their slippers and their classic ultra mini boot. Amazon provides look alikes for a fraction of the price.

Classic Ultra Mini $140

CUSHIONAIRE Women’s Hip pull on boot +Memory Foam $70

UGG Women’s Coquette Slipper $119

WaySoft Genuine Australian Sheepskin Women Slippers $70

The soft, glowy and natural makeup look has come back into style. Milk Makeup provides hydrating products and their Hydro Grip Primer is an award winning primer to help makeup blend on to your skin better while also hydrating your skin. Elf Cosmetics is known for making great and affordable products, they provide a dupe for the hydro grip primer for only $10.

Hydro Grip Hydrating Makeup Primer $36


A fear of aging and wrinkles has taken over the younger generations, a great way to prevent skin damage is SPF. Supergoop is a popular facial sunscreen brand and can be found at Ulta and Sephora. Supergoop provides an array of different sunscreens such as tinted, matte and watery sunscreen. Their most popular product is their Glowscreen, which provides a slight tanned and glowy look. The famous sunscreen brand Coppertone provides this same product for $5.69.

Mini Glowscreen Sunscreen SPF 40 $22


Drunk Elephant has taken over everyones makeup routine as well as their wallet. The most popular product is their D-Bronzi Drops which is a skincare product that you can mix in with either moisturizer or foundation. This product will leave you looking tanned and picture perfect. L’oreal Lumi Glotion is the same product for a cheaper price, when purchasing buy the dark shade for that tanned look.

D-Bronzi™ Anti-Pollution Bronzing Drops with Peptides $36

True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer $15.99

Aritzia is known as a high end retail store, they have adorable clothes in every category but the most popular are their Divinity jumpsuit and the SuperPuff jacket. Again, these products are overhyped and way over priced. There are multiple dupes on amazon. You can also find a similar puffer jacket at H&M.

Dvinity jumpsuit $98

SOLY HUX Women’s Spaghetti Strap High Waist Skinny Jumpsuit $27.99

The SuperPuff $250

Puffer jacket $49.99

Skims is a loungewear brand founded by no other then Kim Kardashian. Skims is worth the hype because Kimberly made sure to include a variety of skin tones so your lounge wear will blend in. Even though it is worth the hype, it is not worth the price. There are multiple dupes for the whole line on amazon for half the money.


Long Skims Dupe Dress $20.98
