The mother of all dupes..How can they get away with this!?

I'm going to show you a few photos. I am certain that every single one of you will be know what the following product is...and if you don't -shame on you!





Is this the cult complexion enhancer / highlighter from Benefit which we all know and love? - HIGH BEAM retailing at £18.50 

NO IT IS NOT!
INTRODUCING THE MOTHER OF ALL DUPES!
Technic 'High Lights' 

I recently bought this from Bodycare for £1.99. That is correct one hundred and ninety nine English pennies. I was shopping with Mrs Mama Jones at the time and I actually screeched a little too excitedly and a little too loud, 'mum, mum! they've got high beam! look! look!'

Only on closer inspection did I see this minxy little dupe for what it really is - which is just a fabulous product. High beam is a staple in my kit, I use it on cheeks, brow bones, cupids bow and mix with body lotion on the decolletage for a subtle shim shimmy. I have used the Me Me Me version of Beat the blues which was thee original dupe for High Beam but I found the shade and the formula to be too dissimilar to be a true dupe. This however is essentially the exact same product as High Beam. 

If you love High Beam you need this in your life! Get hunting for it pronto! 

That is all for this evening

Love

Miss Jones

  12. Wow what a dupe! I love how it's not even trying to disguise itself, off to Bodycare I go come Monday! x

  13. @Aysh im not sure what store would compare in other regions. Its basically a very cheap superdrug it doesn't stock many cosmetics but every so often a corker like this appears. The brand is Technic maybe google that? sorry not much help with that one xx

  14. Crazy! And as far as I know, that's not the only Benefit product they make. I have no idea how they get away with it, but it's pretty funny :p
