Makeup addiction, a very expensive condition… Sometimes our favorite High-end makeup brands are a little bit over the price and so beyond reach for our budget. However you can easily find Korean Makeup duplicates with same quality, but for a cheaper price. That’s quite unbelievable, isn’t it? Let’s go through some high-end beauty products and their Korean Cosmetics match.

Stilla Vs Holika Holika

Stilla Eye shadows are well known for highly pigmented colors and long lasting products. Through the beauty community, reviews are unanimous toward this product. Still the price ($24) is pretty expensive. In Korean cosmetics, the perfect dupe is the Holika Holika Eye Metal Glitter (Stilla dust). Using the same paddle foot applicator for the perfect eye application as Stilla, the Holika Holika Eye shadow has the equivalent pros.
