COLLECTION Dupes

Collection is the make-up brand I first ever used as a teen and as a brand it is one I have fallen back in love with, mainly because of these two products which team up as amazing dupes!


COLLECTION Dupes

The Collection Gorgeous Glow Bronze Brick which costs just £3.99 is brilliant. There is a great range of shades from a highlighter to a much darker bronzer and they are all highly pigmented, much more so than I would have expected at that price. They are a velvety smooth powder formula which makes them really blendable. Then I have the Bobbi Brown Bronze Shimmer Brick, which I have duped before and whilst it is an incredible product, highly pigmented shades and as blendable as you want it to be, it costs £32.50.


If I had to choose a favourite, Collection edges it for me with this Glow Gorgeous palette because it highlights as well as bronzes and the shades are much more workable.

The Collection Speedy Highlighter, which is priced at £2.66 in Superdrug. As a Crayon it makes the job of adding some highlights to your face an absolute breeze and it is perfect for on the go. Then there is the Boots No.7 Instant Radiance Highlighter for which the Collection Speedy Highlighter is the perfect dupe and again I have duped this before. I love this No.7 Highlighter, it is has an amazing formula which dried incredibly quickly and creates an amazing highlighting effect and it costs just £9.95 but the Collection version is almost a third of the price!


Again this Collection offering is incredible, I absolutely love it and have already bought a back up in case I should run out.  It is so similar to the Boots No.7 version it is impossible not to love both, but the highlight that comes from Collection, as you can see below, is amazing and for me it is the winner of the two.

So these are the two current dupes that I am loving right now!  What do you think? Have you found any decent dupes lately?

  2. Wow there really isn't much of a difference between these!! I hate how expensive makeup is but am always dubious of the really cheap ones as I'm never sure of the quality :/ This highlighter looks great though, I'll definitely be looking out for this because it's an item I don't already own!

  7. I can't believe Collection are still going, I'd long forgotten about them. I have to admit I don't own enough make up to be too excited about dupes as I do like to spend a bit of money when I am buying make up. But you've definitely found some products worth looking at here :)

  10. I love this post and I love a good dupe! I actually have a collection shimmer brick type product, I think it's the only collection item I own in fact and I do use it.
    I found a very close dupe for Asphyxia eyeshadow from Urban Decay from Freedom Makeup, Brights 227 mono eyeshadow and it's a £! It's amazing, literally my favourite dupe :) x
