Best of/dupes make up items

I have a rare shopping trip planned today and I have tonnes to pack into the day.... what with trying to be French and my new need for a leopard print coat...

So make up-

I always get the ysl touché eclat. Is this still the best or is there something better/cheaper that is just as good?

I’ve been using the ysl touch eclat foundation- which I love- but is there something that’s better now?

Any votes for Foundation brush?

And I plan to get a no7 colour match for lipsticks- want a red and a berry I think- but is this the place to go for this?

Mascara- I had been using Lancôme hypnose but I just don’t rate it anymore? I want them to look natural but better!

I’m 40 natural redhead/dark auburn green eyes fair dry skin- if it’s relevant.

Max factor masterpiece mascara is brilliant.

I would second a max factor mascara- I go proper old school for 2000 Calorie.

The boots lipstick match was ok and I got a nice ‘me but better’ shade but not world shaking.

Great. Thanks for that. I’ll go for that this time. Lancôme is a lot to pay when I feel so underwhelmed by it.

I really like the No7 Stay Perfect mascara for everyday. It’s not dramatic, but it’s enough for workwear. I like Chanel inimitable for something more dramatic.
I would like to try Charlotte Tilbury’s fat lashes though.
