“So first things first, we have the Flawless Glow Radiant Glow Primer Foundation Hybrid, and this is the dupe of the Flawless Filter by Charlotte Tilbury.  

“This is £5 and I got it in the shade Buttermilk. We are going to be using this as a glowy primer today as I have another foundation to try out which is very exciting. 

“So let’s give this a go. Hopefully, this will be my shade when it rubs out. It’s quite light at the moment.

“Right I think this is going to be absolutely fine and I’m glad I got a foundation to go on top of it because this is not giving me enough coverage.”

In the comments, Alicia’s followers shared their own reviews of the Primark dupes, with one writing: “I have the foundation and it is amazing, in my view. You really don’t need to put a lot on either as it goes a long way.”

Another said: “After watching your Primark foundation trial, I ran to Primark and got some myself best thing I’ve ever had! Better than my MAC.”
