The £3 Rayban Dupe

Thursday, 27 July 2017

Who doesn't love when a brand makes a similar product to one another with the only major difference being the much cheaper price tag. Yay for dupes. Although I'm all for companies taking inspiration from another companies product and making a cheaper version, I don't totally agree with people claiming to be selling the legit item but it turns out being a fake. Especially with makeup on places like Ebay and Amazon because you never really know which ingredients are being thrown in there and they could be harmful. Also not to mention they're completely ripping off the original manufacturer and misleading people.

In this case however, Primark have brought out new sunnies that look pretty similar to the Rayban Round Metal ones. What's so special about this I hear you eagerly ask? The price difference is quite substantial. The Primark sunglasses cost only £3 whereas the Rayban version, which are almost identical, can cost up to a whopping £146.
£3 vs £146 for a pair of sunglasses. Madness.


The Rayban Version: £146.50



I've never been that bothered about wearing expensive brands or spending ridiculous amounts of money on clothes/accessories/makeup especially when you can get a cheaper alternative that's probably the exact same level of quality. More so when it comes to sunglasses. I've more often than not been happy to opt for a £2 pair from Primark. They do the job just fine. I've bought quite a few pairs of sunnies from primark, I'm a bit obsessed.

For £3 you really can't go wrong. They're high quality and although they're thin metal frames, they're not flimsy or unstable. The reflective colour is really pigmented too. You know with some sunglasses that claim to be reflective but don't actually turn out to be that mirrored? Not these bad boys. They're ideal for when you want to hide dark circles behind big shades on no makeup days in the summer. 


I had to stop myself from buying the rose gold pair too (I'd already bought 3 other pairs oops) but I might have to go back and get them.....

  5. I don't see any harm in a dupe - i think it is good to encourage more expensive brands to make their prices more accessible by introducing competitive items.
