From trend-setting products to sworn essentials, icons and fans alike have been gushing over Charlotte Tilbury for a while now.

The British beauty master has worked with Hollywood’s finest, such as Nicole Kidman and reality royalty Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian.

Charlotte Tilbury Beauty first launched in London back in 2013.

For 20 years, Charlotte worked as a makeup artist before creating her line of beauty and skincare products.

I tried Kourtney Kardashian's $116 morning routine - I was right to dread it

There’s no question you would fall in love with at least one of these products – but that’s the problem.

If you’re okay with spending a minimum of $24 on one lip liner every couple of months, then buying these products isn’t an issue.

Yet, for some, that price is too steep, and they would rather not get hooked.

Luckily, some fans claim to have found cheaper dupes for Charlotte Tilbury’s products, and buying six could save you a total of $165.

Makeup fanatics and curious consumers have rushed to try each one.

The question is, are they as good as the originals?

CHARLOTTE TILBURY HOLLYWOOD FLAWLESS FILTER DUPE

Famed for the start of the glowy makeup look, Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood Flawless Filter is one of her most popular products.

This sheer and sparkly base is used under foundation and on its own.

But for $44, it’s an expensive product to keep as a staple.

When ELF Cosmetics dropped their $14 Halo Glow Liquid Filter, beauty lovers were eager to see how it compared to the flawless filter.

TikTok’s makeup influencer Mikayla Nogueira posted a video of her testing the two products next to each other on her face.

Mikayla uses the shade fair in the Hollywood Flawless Filter and the Halo Glow Liquid Filter.

She describes the applicator of the ELF product to be “massive” in comparison.

She uses two different brushes to buff out each on her skin.

“It’s absolutely a perfect match. I’m not messing around, I take dupes very seriously, this looks identical,” she says.

Other makeup creators on TikTok have agreed that this dupe is one of the best in general.

CHARLOTTE TILBURY HOLLYWOOD CONTOUR WAND DUPE

The fact that the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand has been out of stock for months clearly indicates how popular it is.

Contouring with liquid bronzer has changed the game for easy, everyday looks.

Unfortunately, not only is this product constantly out of stock, but one tube is $40.

But Makeup Revolution’s Eye Bright Concealer in Warm Chestnut has been suggested as a $7 dupe.

TikTok beauty artist Lex gave this one a try.

In her video, she dots the Hollywood Contour Wand along the right side of her face and the Eyebright Concealer along the left.

Placing them both on her cheekbones, the top of the forehead, and the outer corners of the eyes, Lex blends these products out with a brush.

“It’s fairly sheer,” she says about the Charlotte Tilbury product.

“A slightly dryer consistency, but still very blendable and more pigmented,” Lex adds about the Revolution Eye Bright.

Her conclusion: “A perfect AFFORDABLE dupe for the sold-out Charlotte Tilbury contour wand.”

DUPES FOR CHARLOTTE TILBURY’S BEAUTY LIGHT WAND IN PINKGASM AND SPOTLIGHT

Another iconic product from Charlotte Tilbury’s wand kit is her $40 Beauty Light Wand in Pinkgasm.

This pop of pink shimmer is said to pinch the cheeks like no other.

But TikTok creator Rose Siard begs to differ.

Rose tested the dupe for this product: the $7 Makeup Revolution Bright Light Highlighter in Divine Dark Pink.

“This might be one of my favorite dupes yet,” she prefaces the video.

Rose places one product on one cheek and one on the other.

“I think they pretty much look the same,” she says.

Victoria Alyn tested the $13 Flower Beauty Spotlight Liquid Highlighter Opal to see if it was a viable alternative to the Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand in Spotlight.

This Beauty Light Wand is the same price as the Pinkgasm one, $40.

In her video, Victoria places both spotlight highlighters on either side of her forehead, cheeks, and nose.

The match is “insane,” in her opinion.

CHARLOTTE TILBURY PILLOW TALK LIPSTICK AND LIP CHEAT DUPES

The Pillow Talk Collection by Charlotte Tilbury quickly gained popularity even among women who don’t typically wear lipstick or lipliner.

But the allure of this rich pink lip combo was enough to make people want to try it.

The Pillow Talk Lipstick in Pillow Talk Medium is $34, and the Lip Cheat Lipliner in Pillow Talk 2 Medium is $24.

While the lipstick may last longer than the single pencil lip liner, the two products are still pricier than most.

Beauty lovers Katherine King and Hasime posted TikTok’s trying the dupes.

Katherine tested the $10.99 L’Oreal Color Riche Les Nus Intense Lipstick in Nu Impertinent as an alternative to the Pillow Talk Lipstick in Pillow Talk Medium.

Katherine initially thinks the colors won't match

At first glance, Katherine thought the Pillow Talk Lipstick was more “cool-toned.”

Katherine ends up shocked at the way these two lipsticks match perfectly.

“Once they’re on the lips, to me, they look absolutely identical,” she says.

Hasime filmed her swatching the $5 NYX Professional Makeup Slim Lip Pencil, Long-Lasting Creamy Lip Liner – Peekaboo Neutral next to the Pillow Talk Lip Cheat Lip Liner.

Carefully drawing a line with each pencil, Hasime tested the two colors, and they were the same.
