Real talk: Finding a good makeup dupe is one of the purest forms of joy in life.

While they may have slightly less staying power than the products they emulate, finding a cheap dupe means being able to test out a color or trend without committing your life savings to the cause.

DupeThat is an Instagram account dedicated to finding and swatching dupes for practically every new lipstick, eyeshadow, highlighter, etc. that comes out.

While every shade of makeup will look different on every skin tone, DupeThat's finds showcase the similarity of product colors as accurately as possible.
