Are the Versed Mood Lighting Luminizing Glow Drops a worthy alternate for the Fenty Beauty Eaze Drop'lit All-Over Glow Enhancer? Let’s find out.

On the latest episode of What the Dupe, PureWow creator Matthew compared Fenty Beauty’s best-selling product with a less expensive dupe by Versed.

In the episode (see above), Matthew explained the hype behind Fenty Beauty’s Eaze Drop'lit All-Over Glow Enhancer. “These Fenty All Over Glow Enhancer Drops have gone viral for a really good reason. They serve so many purposes,” he said. “You can mix them with your moisturizer to add a little bit of glow. You can put it under your makeup like a primer for a base glow.”

Matthew applied one product to each side of his face. While assessing the Fenty Beauty product, he noted that it’s “super lightweight, not sticky at all and feels super hydrating.” He explained that it’s very “sheer—almost blurring in a way—but also illuminating.”

As for the Versed Glow Drops, Matthew revealed that he wished “it were more noticeable” because the Fenty Beauty product is “more tinted.” However, he admitted that it lives up to expectations. “The application feels the exact same,” he said. “The product feels very similar.” Keep scrolling for more details on each product.
