For those who wish to cut down their beauty spending, any good quality make up duplicates – or ‘dupes’ – are welcome additions to the cosmetic collection.

And popular New Zealand make up vlogger, Shannon Harris, recently discovered what she believes to be an almost ‘identical’ dupe for YSL’s popular Fusion Ink foundation.

The best news is that Wet n Wild’s Photo Focus Foundation costs just AUD $7 (USD $5.99) whereas the YSL product costs AUD $89.

‘I think [Wet n Wild] is a really good dupe for the YSL foundation which is one of my all time favourites,’ the 25-year-old said.

‘Today I am going to be comparing the two in a half-face tutorial – I might have to custom mix a colour to make it look really good. 

‘The Fusion Ink foundation – it was ridiculously expensive but for me it was worth it because I really love this stuff and it lasts forever.’

Shannon started by priming her entire face before applying each foundation. 

‘This foundation you can often see my freckles through but I still love the way it looks. It is so easy to blend and it does last well on me, normally,’ Shannon said of the YSL product.

‘Sometimes it sits a little bit funny on my nose so I have to put a little bit of concealer over it but other than that I love the way it looks.    

‘The Wet n Wild I have been using a lot lately. I’ve been using it in day to day life and I really like it. It’s so stunning and it seems to sit decently on my nose.’

She then went to the gym and on a walk and found that afterwards, both foundations had still performed excellently
