Beauty: £6.99 Dupes for Nars Copacabana and Iconic London Illuminators

 If there’s one thing I’ve been really into lately it’s liquid highlighters and when I saw that Barry M were releasing a range of liquid highlighters I knew I had to try them out. However, I didn’t realise how close they were as dupes for two liquid highlighter favourites I already own…

So I bet you’re wondering, why do I love cream/liquid highlighters? I find them a lot more wearable than powder highlighters as they give a much more ‘natural’ effect. On no makeup days, I love mixing a couple of drops of this with my Kiehls moisturiser and on make up days I love mixing them with my foundation to create a dewy look. I also love using the highlighter over my foundation base to create the perfect amount of glow.

When comparing these two highlighters together, I do prefer the NARS Copacabana as it blends in more like a cream but the Barry M ‘At First Light’ is a lot more like a highlighter as it’s more intense. I think on no makeup days NARS Copacabana is great as a base but when it comes to mixing highlighter and foundation together, you’ll get a more noticeable result from the Barry M highlighter.

Barry M Liquid Chrome Highlighter in 'Beam Me Up'  -£6.99
Iconic London Highlighter in 'Original' - £32.99
Another dupe you say? Both these highlighters come in at under the price of NARS Copacabana and the Iconic Illuminators so even more reason to treat yourself to them and if you buy them on ASOS (through the links above) you can get a further 10% if you’re a student too!

As you can see these shades are both incredibly similar and I actually think I prefer using the Barry M highlighter as it is easier to build up and to create a more intense and defined look.

What do you think of these highlighter dupes? Will you be picking these up?
