Beauty Splurge vs. Steal of the Week: Bobbi Brown Finishing Powder

Splurge vs Steal: Bobbi Brown Finishing Powder

In this weekly column, I’m bringing you my favorite budget-friendly beauty products (and their high-end equivalents!) that are available online and in-store. This week, we’re chatting finishing powder (!). Also make sure to check out my blog, for even more beauty product reviews, tips and tricks.

Bobbi Brown Brightening Finishing Powder is not only pretty to look at, but it also serves as a brightening pick-me-up for your face. The powder illuminates your skin and adds a little healthy glow, even when your skin is looking a little, errr, drab…but the price? No bueno. I have no problem spending money on a product that’s totally necessary but getting a little glow is NOT worth $52, at least not to me.

The alternative? e.l.f. Studio Tone Correcting Powder not only looks almost exactly like the Bobbi Brown version, but it also has the same results! The colors blend together seamlessly and work to neutralize redness and also brighten you up, a la Bobbi.

Amazing dupe! Gotta love Elf:)

Nyx also has one that is pretty identical
to Bobbi Brown.
I use it all the time and it's great!
