IT seems like a new beauty dupe comes out every week these days.
But how do you know if they're any good?
Well, influencer Regan Ellis took it upon herself to try out Aldi's latest offerings and Primark's ones, to see which was best.
Regan began with Aldi – starting with their dupe of the Bobbi Brown primer and following it with the Cashmere Glow foundation, a dupe of the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation.
"I'm really pleasantly surprised by that," she said.
"I feel like my skin just looks airbrushed with it. I really like it, it doesn't feel too heavy either.

Next she used Aldi's eyeshadow primer – a dupe of Urban Decay's one – and followed it with the Quad eyeshadow palette, a dupe of the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk palette.
Of the eyeshadow she said: "For £3.99 it was fantastic. It looks pretty."
She concluded her Aldi make-up try on with the dupes of the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk lip range – a lip liner, lipstick and lip gloss in the shade Perfect Nude.

"I'm obsessed with the lipliner and the lipstick," Regan said.
"They go on really well, they're really buttery and they smell like chocolate!"
She then added the lip gloss, and gushed: "Oh, this gloss is everything!"
Next, Regan gave the Primark dupes a try, although she admitted at first: "I'm a lot more sceptical to try the Primark dupes than the Aldi ones, don't ask me why!"
She began again with the dupe of the Bobbi Brown primer, before using her normal concealer and then trying Primark's dupe of CHarlotte Tilbury's Flawless Filter foundation.
"To be fair, that's not really doing much for me," she sighed.
She swapped it for the dupe of the Maybelline Fit Me foundation, which she preferred, but said the Aldi foundation had more coverage.
Regan then gave the whipped bronzer a try, which she said was "buildable but not wow", and then tried out the highlighter wand – a dupe of the Charlotte Tilbury one.
"I feel like that looks pretty," she said.
She then went to do her eyes off camera, before returning and saying of the palette: "Did I love it? No I didn't.
"There was a lot of fall out. It wasn't very buildable. The pressed glitters in it were lovely but the actual shadows in it I hated. Not a fan."

Concluding, she said: "The Flawless Filter dupe was c**p, the actual foundation was alright, the cream bronzer was alright, eyeshadow and eyeshadow primer was c**p and the lipsticks were nice."
"So far Aldi is WAY better than Primark!" she captioned her video.
