Can You Tell Which Star Sneakers Cost $600 More Than The Other?
SHEfinds receives commissions for purchases made through the links in this post. I'm a sucker for anything with stars. So when I saw Heidi Klum's metallic star sneakers, I had to have them... until I realized they cost $645. Fast-forward a few weeks later, and I found lookalikes of the Saint Laurent Court Classic Sneakers with Metallic Stars. Except, no joke, this pair from Topshop costs just $45. *Adds to cart* Can you tell which star sneakers are more expensive? Click on the images below to reveal if you guessed right!

Which Movie-Themed Clutches Are Better–Charlotte Olympia’s or Kate Spade’s?
Apparently, movie-themed clutches are a thing these days. Two of our favorite brands, Charlotte Olympia and Kate Spade, both have film-inspired bags out right now. And a few of the handbags are almost identical. Charlotte Olympia's Movie Night embroidered leather shoulder bag ($495) is $137 more than Kate Spade's Cinema City Popcorn Bag ($358), but otherwise, the bags are weirdly similar. If you don't feel like carrying around a carton of fake popcorn (we personally prefer the real thing) you can opt for this Take Pandora Perspex clutch ($995). The Kate Spade version is technically an iPad sleeve ($50), but no one will know the difference. We prefer Olympia's clapboard clutch because it actually snaps shut and you can run around screaming "Cut!" at people all night. The handbags are cute, but we can't image a grown woman using a bag shaped like a popcorn carton. Is there a demand for movie-themed clutches that we just didn't know about? What do you think about the film inspired handbags? For more crazy handbags, check out this #selfie tote bag, this open cage clutch and these new Soludos totes.
Can You Tell Which Black Fringe Bikini Is From Forever 21?
The countdown to the official start of summer is on and the best way to celebrate anything is shopping right? Celebrities love a good fringe bikini and it was just seen in the premiere of Bravo's new show Princess: Long Island during an unforgettable scene (for those of you who know what I'm talking about, awkward much?). Bikinis can sometimes be way over priced, but one of these options won't break the bank. Now you can get the look too and dress like a celeb, but first you have to guess which fringe bikini costs less. Answer: The one on the left is Forever 21 Fringed Bikini ($10.80) and the bikini on the right is the L*Space Audrey Fringe Bikini ($73). Which bikini do you like more?

YSL Glossy Stain Vs. L’Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain
Do you know what Yves Saint Laurent and L'Oreal beauty products have in common? Well, believe it or not, they are both owned by The L'Oréal Group (aka the world's largest cosmetics and beauty company). Which means occasionally L'Oreal products can be "dupes" (or duplicates) for YSL cosmetics. It doesn't happen all the time, but every once in a while YSL and L'Oreal come out with virtually the same product in terms of the forumla. We've seen rumors on the internet that the L'Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stains ($9.99) are very similar to the extremely popular (and expensive) YSL Glossy Stains ($34). We decided to give them both a try and compare the results: YSL Glossy Stain: This luxury lip stain has rave reviews because it combines the texture and shine of a lip gloss with the long wear of a lip stain. I applied about 3 coats to achieve the color I wanted. At first, the stain felt wet on my lips. After 1 or 2 minutes, the stain dried and had a glossy finish. I found that the color got a bit darker once it dried. This wasn't a problem for me, but it's something to be aware of when you are applying it. It lasted for solid 4-5 hours on my lips before I felt like I needed to reapply it. The packaging is beautiful but it's expensive ($34 a pop!). YSL Glossy Stains are available in 24 different shades so it's almost impossible to pick a favorite. L'Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain: The packaging is very nice, but it is lighter and cheaper than the YSL packaging. Both the L'Oreal and YSL products have rounded wand applicators that are similar in quality and performance. It took about 4-5 coats of the L'Oreal Shine Stain to get the color I wanted. Like the YSL stain, the color got a bit darker after it dried. It had almost the exact same finish and lasting power (4-5 hours) as the YSL Glossy Stain. At $9.99 these lip stains are a steal, but they only come in 12 colors. Verdict: It's a tie! The YSL Glossy Stains and L'Oreal Shine Stains are extremely similar. It's hard to say that one is better than the other. Both glosses have the same consistency and pigmentation. My favorite feature about both products is that you can build up the color--you can keep the color light with only a coat or two or you can layer it up for a bolder look. The L'Oreal Shine Stain takes more layers to build up, but this can be a positive quality if you want more control over your lip color. The only other difference is the packaging. YSL packaging is more luxurious but you get almost the same exact amount of product in each tube (YSL is .20 oz and the L'Oreal is .21 oz). If you want to invest in one nice lip stain, I recommend the YSL Glossy Stains. They come in a wider color range, so you can invest in the perfect shade for you. Personally, I rather get the 3 different L'Oreal Shine Stains for the same price. Either way, both lip stains are long-lasting and easy to wear. I highly recommend them both, especially if you are not a fan of traditional lipsticks. Test your taste skills some more: can you tell which pair of ankle boots costs $700 more than the others, which striped neon clutch costs $100 more or which PVC pump costs $600 more?
Target Copies Proenza Schouler’s PS1 Bag–But What About All The Other Fashion Copycats?
Proenza Schouler's PS1 bag at Net a Porter vs Mossimo's satchel at Target. Target's newest messenger bag, by Mossimo, looks just like the uber-coveted Proenza Schouler PS1 bag and Proenza Schouler is not happy.
