Sephora beauty dupes: Calgary employees share affordable makeup dupes in viral TikTok

These product swaps can help you save big at checkout.

Sephora employees from Calgary are going viral after sharing their favourite product dupes on TikTok.

When it comes to finding the very best in beauty products, sometimes it's best to turn to the experts. Sephora employees have a wealth of knowledge about the many brands the store carries, and apparently, where the best dupes are too.

A recent TikTok video has gone viral, as a group of Calgary Sephora employees took to social media to share "total dupes" for high end products.

At the time of publish, the video has racked up more than 1.3 million views — and it's only been five days since the 47-second video was posted.

The employees shared affordable alternatives from several popular makeup brands, including Too Faced, Dior and Charlotte Tilbury. All in all, the seven "dupe" products retail for a total of $180, compared to $312 for the cost of the originals — a savings of $132.

Beauty lovers were quick to flood the comments with praise, calling these recommendations "the only dupes I’m trusting."

"Sephora dupes are [for real]," one TikTok user wrote. "Their formula is so good, like no joke."

"Are they paying y’all for an ad [because] I just got influenced," one person wrote.

"I want it all," added another.

Others were disappointed that the secret had been spilled, with one person writing, "noooo stop telling people my dupes."

"Not my fav mascara about to go out of stock," added another.

Given how quickly TikTok can influence shopping trends, there's good reason to suspect that many of these dupes might soon sell out. However, if you want to give any of them a try, scroll through to shop the Sephora employee-approved dupes for yourself.
