Charlotte Tilbury foundation ‘dupe’ hits the shelves for half the price and makeup artists are obsessed: ‘They’re identical’
- MCo Beauty has launched a brand new Flawless Glow skin perfector ($35)
- Beauty lovers claim it is ‘identical’ to Charlotte Tilbury’s Flawless Filter ($65)
A budget brand has created a dupe of Charlotte Tilbury’s iconic Flawless Filter foundation for half the price – and it could be even better than the original.
MCo Beauty has just launched the much-awaited foundation and makeup artists are already calling in the ‘most iconic dupe of 2023 so far’.
The brand’s Flawless Glow complexion perfector ($35) even looks like the more expensive brand’s foundation with a gold lid and red lettering.
And it is sure to fly off the shelves when shoppers learn how the two products compare.
Charlotte Tilbury’s Hollywood Flawless Filter ($65) is a staple in any beauty lover’s makeup kit, but the high price usually causes hesitation.
The MCo Beauty product is much more affordable and often available at discounted prices at Woolworths, Big W, and Chemist Warehouse.
‘I love MCo’s new product – it’s so beautiful and luminous on my skin,’ said Sydney makeup artist Ashlee Day.

MCo Beauty has just launched a much-awaited ‘dupe’ for Charlotte Tilbury’s popular Flawless Filter foundation – and it’s half the price
The professional makeup artist shared a video where she compared both products side-by-side.
‘MCo Beauty has just launched a dupe – and it’s literally the most iconic dupe of the year so far,’ Ashlee said.
‘It’s their brand new Flawless Glow foundation, and I cannot believe they finally came out with this!’
As a brand partner, Ashlee revealed that the product had been ‘a long time in the making’.
‘We know this formula and we love it,’ she said about CT’s Flawless Filter as she applied it to the left side of her face.
‘It cancels out redness and evens out your skin tone.’
She admitted that she was ‘extremely excited’ to try MCo’s dupe, and applied the formula on the other half of her face.
‘It’s blending well, and MCo has more coverage to it – which I absolutely love.’
‘The product is still giving that beautiful luminous glow but more neutral.’
Ashlee admitted that while she loved CT’s foundation, she often found it to be very ‘golden’ and ‘yellow’ which did not wear well at nighttime.
The woman also picked out another flaw with CT’s formula.
‘The Charlotte side is definitely emphasizing the pore area [around my nose] a lot more, which is why I don’t reach for this product as much.’
‘However, MCo is not emphasizing my pores, fine lines, or texture at all – and I can honestly say I like it better than the CT side.’
Dubbed the ‘most iconic dupe of 2023 so far’, the brand’s Flawless Glow complexion perfector ($35) is sure to fly off the shelves
Many were excited to try MCo’s new product and see how it measured up against their high-end favourite.
‘I’ve been loving all of MCo’s other products – this looks like a hit as well!’ a woman said.
Another added: ‘Wow, both are beautiful on you.’
‘I literally added it to my cart immediately,’ wrote a third.
Fans have also pointed out that the dupe is so similar that the packaging is ‘practically the same’ as well.
‘Wow – I couldn’t even tell the difference between the bottles for a second.’
‘There’s no difference between them.’
