PSA: We found 10 dupes for your favourite high-end makeup products.

More and more affordable beauty brands are creating makeup products that closely resemble popular high-end options. Some are so similar we'd consider them dupes

Whether that's because they match in colour, consistency, or better yet - both, we've found 10 products that are near-perfect matches for their expensive counterparts, at a fraction of the cost. 

From the beloved Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation to the cult classic NARS Orgasm, here are 10 dupes for your favourite high-end makeup products.

But first, here's how to create a non-smokey eye without black. Post continues after video.

Here are three other dupes for high-end makeup products we swear by.

Flower Petal Pout Lip Color Spiced Petal, $9.99.

This is a near-perfect dupe for the cult classic Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk. The colour is practically identical, the consistency is super creamy and it's more affordable!

MCoBeauty Instant Camouflage & Contour Concealer, $22.

This is the closest thing we've found to the ever-so-popular Tarte Shape Tape. It's thick and full coverage (perfect for covering pimples and discolouration) but doesn't crease in fine lines.

Flower Pots Powder Blush Warm Hibiscus, $13.99.

And lastly, our favourite dupe for NARS Orgasm. Not only is it cheaper than the OG blush but it's super similar, too. The colour is a mix between pink and peach, it's extremely pigmented and has a soft-satin finish - so it gives a glowy, warm flush to the cheeks.
