Brandefy compares value brand beauty products to prestige brand products to help savvy shoppers outsmart marketers. We find dupes to save you money. We compare ingredients and have real people try supposed dupes side-by-side. No paid reviews aloud!
To all those who have wondered why some products cost $25, while similar looking ones are $4; we’re here to be your beauty detective. We’re basically the makeup FBI! Sometimes, that expensive product is only pricey because tons of marketing dollars have been poured into it. We want you to pay for a quality product, not marketing spend.
We’ve compared everything from cult favorite mascaras to poppin’ lip colors! We’ll tell you what brands are cruelty-free and what our beauty besties thought of a dupe.
With the Brandefy app, you can:
Search for the products you love to find dupes
Find dupes for cult favorites without the cult favorite prices
Browse ahead of time and save items to your favorites list - to get later
Agree or disagree with dupe comparisons by commenting directly in the app, to help thousands of shoppers make a better decision.

Ratings and Reviews
Honest & reliable
I am shopping in target and I am deciding between name brand and store brand on a regular basis. I look to see if BRANDEFY has compared it yet, and often they have. I get to save money OR know that name brand is better depending on the product. I suggest checking it out to know the honest difference between name and store brand.
One minor suggestion
Love it so far, but I'd love to be able to save products I want to try and be able to view them all at once. A pipe dream would be to then sort them by the store, but just being able to save would be nice!
Developer Response ,
Hi Lynnz -- WE LOVE this feedback! We are a startup and can incorporate all these wishes! We are already planning on adding a filter by store and can certainly add a "save product" category. If you have time for a quick user call, we'd love to get more specifics so we can build them in in early 2019. You can contact us via our website at brandefy.info. Thank you! - Meg, founder of Brandefy
Super handy for finding dupes
This app is fantastic for saving money! As a makeup junkie, i am a sucker for high end products. My wallet, on the other hand, can’t handle that lifestyle. This app has been amazing for finding dupes similar to the high-end brands so that i can save money and look good!
