Over the years, I’ve become a dedicated, loyal Glossier customer. And it’s clear why! Glossier’s products are high quality, their packaging is adorable and I speak from experience when I say their customer service is on point. Although Glossier is not exuberantly priced, they are definitely not cheap, which I know causes people to hesitate. Trust me, I get it. This is why I decided to make the ultimate Glossier dupe guide.
Although I love Glossier, I always want to save my readers (and myself) some moolah! I totally understand having a hard time justifying the price. I’ve done a lot of research, have purchased a lot of products, and have some awesome Glossier dupes for you.
Let’s get into it and save you some money, shall we?

The Boy Brow is my favorite product from Glossier. I’ve been using it for years! It fluffs up your eyebrows, gives them a very natural look, and makes them stay put all day.
Glossier’s Boy Brow comes in 5 colors (clear, blond, auburn, brown, and black) and is $17 for .11 oz. Definitely a high price for such a small amount of product.
Boy Brow Dupes
The first Boy Brow dupe I have for you is the Colourpop Brow Gel. This product has a similar brush as the Boy Brow and actually comes with the same .11 oz of product, but at less than half the price at $8.
It comes in 4 colors which are clear, blonde, light brown, dark brown, and soft black. Overall, this product performs pretty similarly to the Boy Brow and there’s nothing of major importance that makes these products different besides the price, which is why it’s a great Glossier dupe.
The second Glossier dupe is Essence Make Me Brow. The applicator is similar to Glossier’s but the formula is a little different in the sense that it is slightly watery. But as long as you have a q-tip handy to clean up, you’ll be fine.
Make Me Brow comes in 4 colors which are blonde, brown, ash brown, and chocolate brown . Plus, you get .13 oz for $4. Yup, you read that right! Only $4.
Next in this Glossier dupe guide is another fav of mine, Cloud Paint. I love this product because it’s the best way to add a subtle hint of color to your cheeks. They also have so many different colors for all skin tones.
This product goes on smoothly and you can apply it with your fingers, making for an easy application. There are 8 shades available, in which I’ve tested them all (am I obsessed? Maybe). My favorite is Puff which is a light, cool pink. This product comes in a .33 fl oz tube and can be purchased for $20.
Cloud Paint Dupes
The first Cloud Paint dupe is Flower Beauty Blush Bomb Color Drops. This product is similar to the Cloud Paint because it’s pigmented and has the same lightweight feel. It’s also easily buildable. The only difference I noticed is that the color doesn’t last as long as Cloud Paint but I know that isn’t a deal-breaker for some people.
The Blush Bomb Color Drops come in a .3 oz tube and are only $11.50. They also come in 8 different shades. Here are some of those comparable shades. These are by no means the same, some are cooler or warmer than others, but they’re at least moderately similar.
Puff – FB Bubbly
Haze – FB Bitten
Beam – FB Nectar
Another Cloud Paint dupe is Maybelline Cheek Heat. The formula of this product is definitely a little patchy and it’s also not super pigmented, but if you’re able to have some patience and work with it then it should work out fine for you.
However, if I’m being honest, I would buy Cloud Paint or Flower Beauty over this. This is a last resort product, maybe if you’re just looking to test a cream blush. But hey, test it out and see for yourself. You get .27 oz for $8 and it comes in 6 different colors.
FYI, I did not test either of these products on top of foundation because I don’t wear foundation (just concealer sometimes) so if you wear foundation, I don’t know how these will sit on top of it.
I did enjoy Glossier’s Future Dew, the formula is great. However, I don’t think it’s something I necessarily need to use since I have pretty oily skin and don’t need any more “glow”. However, it does make your skin extremely radiant!
I do enjoy it, but I personally don’t think it’s worth it with the $26 for only 1 fl oz.
Future Dewpes (see what I did there?)
So in reality, there is no spot-on dupe for Future Dew. But there are a ton of products out there you can use to get a similar radiant effect. The first is this Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Lotion. Where this product is better, in my opinion, is through its sunscreen because Future Dew doesn’t have any sun protection.
This product makes your skin super hydrated and glowy. So if you’re looking for a product to give you some glow and you’re not strict with having the same ingredients as Future Dew, then I suggest this product. Also, it’s only $14 for 3 oz. That’s 3x the amount of product Future Dew offers for a way better price!
The best way to get a radiant glow is simply by mixing your moisturizer with a serum like The Ordinary’s Squalane. This will give your moisturizer even more hydration and therefore, give your skin a beautiful glow.
But like I said above, there isn’t one product that’s exactly the same as Future Dew but by mixing something like this with your moisturizer, you’ll be able to achieve the same results.
Super Bounce, Pure, & Glow
Glossier’s Super Bounce, Pure, and Glow are all fantastic products, I must say. The packaging is absolutely beautiful and the products themselves perform perfectly within their specific duties.
But tbh, the ingredients in these products are pretty simple and can be found for a much cheaper price rather than $29 for 1 fl oz each, or $67 for all three (even though that’s a decent discount, it’s still pricey!)
Super Bounce Dupe
Super Bounce is basically just hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5. Because I that, I recommend using The Ordinary’s Hyaluronic Acid or The Ordinary’s Marine Hyaluronics. These products are essentially the same thing, but the Marine Hyaluronic doesn’t contain vitamin B5 to my knowledge and it’s a little bit more watery.
But all in all, these products are very comparable to Super Bounce and I highly recommend them. You can get 1 oz for $7.50 (Hyaluronic Acid) or $8 (Marine Hyaluronics), which is fantastic!
Super Pure Dupe
Super Pure is made of primarily niacinamide and zinc. And guess what? That’s exactly what The Ordinary’s Niacinamide + Zinc is, hence the name.
I really don’t have much to say about this besides the fact that it proves Glossier’s Super Pure is pretty overpriced, especially considering you can get the same ingredients and 1 oz size for $6.50.
Super Glow Dupe
I couldn’t find a product with the exact ingredients for Super Glow, as I could with the other two “Super” products I mentioned above. But all Super Glow essentially contains is vitamin C and magnesium.
That being said, basically, all you need is a vitamin C product and you’ll be set. I found this comparable one from The Ordinary (which is clearly killing it with these dupes) so I recommend you check that one out.
I’ll be honest, I’m really not obsessed with Glossier’s Balm Dotcom. I know it’s a cult favorite for some people, but I’m a die-hard Burts Bee’s fan. I’m not a fan of flavored products and don’t really like the consistency. It feels too waxy for me, in my opinion.
However, if you love it, I have some dupes for you to check out so you don’t have to spend $12 for a .5 fl oz tube.
Balm Dotcom Dupes
The first dupe I have for you is Jack Black Lip Balm, specifically in the duo. The reason I’m suggesting the duo is that although you’ll be getting two products in this pack, you’ll still be getting the same amount of product as the Balm Dotcom. By that, I mean each tube in this pack is .25 fl oz (Balm Dotcom is .5 fl oz).
The reason I recommend this is that you can get more than one flavor for the same price of $12. However, if you don’t want mint and pineapple mint, then you can buy individual lip balms for $8 which come in 5 different flavors. Plus, this lip balm has SPF in it which is a must-have!
The next Glossier dupe I’m going to recommend is Elf’s Ride or Die Lip Balm. This product is definitely a little bit more glossy but they’re pretty comparable.
This lip balm is awesome because it comes in 4 different flavors and is only $6 for .42 oz. Definitely worth it.
I’m a big lip gloss person and Glossier’s Lip Gloss is my favorite (I have 3 of them at the moment). It’s an absolutely beautiful product and it gives your lips such a lustrous shine.
I also love that it comes in 4 different colors, although I’ve only tried the clear. But, for a clear lip gloss, I totally understand the price can be kind of steep at $15 for .12-.14 fl oz (depending on the color you get).
Lip Gloss Dupe
Glossier’s lip gloss stands out as a gloss that isn’t sticky. It was a bit tricky to find a Glossier dupe because so many glosses are sticky. But I found one that was pretty good! If you’re looking for a great affordable option then I highly recommend Elf’s Lip Lacquer.
It’s $3 for .08 oz. Sure, you get a little less product than Glossier’s Lip Gloss but you can’t beat that price.
I’m obsessed with Glossier’s Lash Slick. I know a lot of people in the beauty community don’t like this product and I totally get it. I first received it as a gift and wasn’t sure if I would like the brush because it just doesn’t look too promising and the bristles aren’t super long.
But let me tell you, there’s no other mascara that makes my lashes look as long and fluffy as this one does. I’m personally willing to splurge on this. You pay $18 for .29 oz. But if this is still too much for you, don’t worry! I have a good suggestion for you below.
Lash Slick Dupe
There are so many mascaras out there, but I did narrow down this bad boy as a great Glossier dupe. The brush on CoverGirl Flourish by Lash Blast Mascara is slightly different than the Lash Slick brush. But they do the same thing to your lashes. By this, I mean that they both make your eyelashes look natural and fluffy with no clumps.
I’m sure there are other products at the drugstore that do the same thing like this, but this is the one that was suggested to me and I found it to give a fairly similar result to the Lash Slick. You get .406 oz for $11.99. More product for half the price!
I realllllllly like Glossier’s Wowder. It doesn’t make my skin look cakey which is really important to me cause although I have oily skin as I mentioned above, I also have a lot of dry patches.
I mainly put this on my forehead and under my eyes and it doesn’t make my face look overly matte which I also love. But honestly, I don’t think I will be repurchasing this product. The price is $22 for a .25 oz container. It’s really not a lot of product for the price.
Most drugstore powders will work well as dupes for Glossier’s Wowder. But I narrowed it down to two, with the first being the Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder. This powder is incredibly popular throughout the beauty community because of its price and performance.
It creates such a beautiful, silky look on your skin. You also get a ton of product for the price, coming in at 2.3 oz for $4. The only thing I hate about this product is the lack of color range. Like come on Coty, let’s get it together with the deeper shade ranges.
Maybelline’s Fit Me Powder is great. Although it has a lot less product than the Coty Airspun, it’s such an awesome powder and it also comes in a better range of shades (definitely not perfect though, Maybelline also has some work to do).
There’s not much to say about this product because it performs well, it doesn’t cake and it doesn’t make my face feel too dry. You get .7 oz for $8.49, which is a really amazing deal.
Glossier’s Skin Tint is the perfect product for me! I don’t typically wear foundation but when I do, I want it to be light, sheer, and not look cakey. That’s exactly what this product does for me. It also comes in a decent color range which I appreciate, but they could really expand on deeper shades.
It gives subtle coverage and literally looks like I don’t have anything on. I don’t have any beef with this product except the price. You only get 1 fl oz for $26. Skin Tint does last a while but it’s still a little pricey for such a small bottle.
Skin Tint Dupe
The best skin tint dupe is the Morphe 2 Hint Hint Skin Tint. This product hydrates the skin leaving a radiant glow with natural coverage. It comes with a dropper applicator so you can control the amount of the product you use. In my opinion, when it comes to a great Glossier dupe, this fits the bill.
This product is $18 for 1oz. While this isn’t the cheapest product on the market, it certainly saves you a few bucks when compared to Skin Tint! Plus it comes in 20 shades whereas Skin Tint only comes in 12.
Milky Jelly Cleanser
Glossier’s Milky Jelly Cleanser is a very nice product. It makes my skin feel very smooth and fresh without stripping it! I also have moderately sensitive skin and this doesn’t irritate my skin at all. I don’t have anything overly negative to say about it.
The price really isn’t the worst for a face cleanser. It comes in two different sizes, 2 fl oz for $9 (this is probably best used for travel) and a 6 fl oz for $19. I don’t think this price is unbearable for some good skincare but I understand this may not be the case for everyone.
Milky Jelly Cleanser Dupes
Don’t sleep on Elf! Their Bounce Back Jelly Cleanser is pretty comparable to the Milky Jelly Cleanser. Fair warning, if you don’t like coconut or you’re sensitive to fragrances, then you will not like this product. Also, why are companies still putting fragrances in their products? Sigh.
This definitely isn’t a perfect Glossier dupe by any means, but you can’t beat $6 for 3.38 fl oz. The product feels exactly the same when coming out of the bottle although I don’t think it’s as hydrating as the Milky Jelly Cleanser. But overall, a decent product.
CereVe’s Hydrating Facial Cleanser is not “milky” by any means. But it’s incredibly hydrating and does exactly what the Milky Jelly Cleanser is intended to do. I used this for a while before switching to Murad but it really is a great product, especially for dry skin.
It’s also great for sensitive skin, so if you’re looking for a good face cleanser just in general, this is it. This product comes in a couple of different sizes. It comes in 8 oz for $14.99, 12 oz for $15.99, and 16 oz for $17.99. Honestly, just get the biggest size. You’re getting double the product for only $3 more.
I have acne prone skin and I started using Glossier’s Solution when it first came out. I do like it, it got rid of all the dead skin on my face and I feel like it definitely helped my acne.
I’m on prescription acne medicine so I don’t try to rely on skincare products to do all the heavy lifting when it comes to my acne, but it did a great job of cleaning my skin. You get 4.4 fl oz for $26. Not the worst price, but also not the best.
One of the main ingredients of Glossier’s Solution is glycolic acid, which is why The Ordinary’s Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution is a great Glossier dupe! I love this product, it makes my skin feel so fresh and also helps my acne.
I noticed fewer breakouts since using it, similar to Glossier’s Solution but you get SO MUCH MORE PRODUCT for a fraction of the price! That’s what makes it a great Glossier dupe. Clearly, I’m excited. You get 8 oz for $10, so check it out.
Although I don’t wear eyeshadow very often, this is a pretty cool product and fits the bill when it comes to Glossier’s “less is more” business model.
Glossier’s SkyWash comes in 7 different colors and goes from a liquid to a powder when placed on your eyes. It’s pretty easy to apply but I must say it can be a little patchy. You can get Skywash in a .11 fl oz tube for $18.
It was a bit tough narrowing down a similar dupe to Skywash. I couldn’t find a product with a similar formula. I decided to check out Colourpop and saw their Colour Stix. While this product doesn’t go from a liquid to a powder, it gives the same bright finish as Skywash.
Colour Stix comes in 21 colors with a mixture of bright and neutral so you can find what works best for you. You can purchase this product for $7, which you seriously can’t beat.
