If you’re a Charlotte Tilbury stan like us, you’ve come to the right place.

On the latest episode of What the Dupe, PureWow creator Matthew set his sights on the Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Finish Setting Powder ($46). He compared the best-selling product with a cheaper alternative—No7 Lift & Luminate Finishing Powder ($15)—to determine whether it’s a worthy dupe.

In the episode (see above), Matthew explained the purpose of setting powder. “The dewy luminous look is very popular right now, but you don't want your face to look like an ice-skating rink,” he said. “So, it’s nice to really lock in all the products you have with a powder without taking away the luminous finish of the look you’re trying to go for.”

“I am always trying to keep my skin flawless throughout the day. I powder my t-zones a lot because I tend to be oily in those areas,” Matthew continued. “I will always put a loose translucent powder under my eyes to bake. And then if I want to set, I put [setting powder] on top, and it really does help lock all of the makeup in.”

Matthew also admitted that the Charlotte Tilbury setting powder is always sold out. According to the beauty expert, “four are sold every minute around the world.”

So, did the No7 Lift & Luminate Finishing Powder live up to expectations? Watch the video to find out.
