The Daily Dupe: Benefit High Beam

The newest addition to One Haute Mommy is the Daily Dupe, a post dedicated to saving beauty-a-holics, like myself, money without sacrificing quality. "Dupe" is short for duplicate and in the beauty world dupes are products that are very similar in appearance and almost always have a wallet-friendly price tag.

Benefit is one of my fave beauty brands and High Beam highlighter is one of my favorites. It’s all about the shimmer. This liquid illuminator comes in a soft pink hue that flatters all skintones. It softly reflects light for an instant spotlight effect, plus gives skin a dewy finish. The only downfall to High Beam is the $26 price tag. Without further adieu, meet Elf Shimmering Facial Whip in Lilac Petal.

 Elf Shimmering Facial Whip in Lilac Petal is as close to a complete replica of High Beam as you can get. The color is the same, the amount of shimmer is the same and it only costs...wait for it...$1. Yep, I said it $1.

The verdict is simple, save $25 and get the ELF version, you will not be disappointed. One Haute Mommy gives Elf Shimmers Facial Whip in Lilac Petal an A+.


  1. Wow! Thanks for the tip! I have never heard of dupes, but I will keep checking your blog. That's a lot of money to save! kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you.

  2. I love ELF products and this looks so pretty. I will definitely be saving my $25 and get the ELF one, especially if they do the same thing.
