Does anybody keep up a lookalikes list these days?

Several years ago there were a few web sites that would list all the lookalikes they had found for expensive and discontinued cosmetics. At that time I took all those and compiled them into a huge file, and I shared it with anybody who was interested. My computer that was on crashed so I lost my list for awhile, and now I'm sure everything's so different that my old list is useless and irrelevant anyway. By this point, probably everything that was on that list is history! Is anybody currently making an effort to compile all the current lookalikes into one file or web site?

Tip: NYC 'Sugar Coated' lip balm in the tin is a lookalike to MAC Creamsheen 'Boy Bait'.

MAC lipstick lookalikes:

(A few:
MAC 'Angel' = Maybelline 'Born With It'
MAC 'Cream Cup' = Rimmel 'Airy Fairy'
MAC Viva Glam 'Gaga' = Revlon 'Baby Pink'
MAC Sheen Supreme 'Impressive' = Rimmel 'Paradise' very close
MAC 'Jazzed' = Revlon 'Smoked Peach'
MAC 'Violetta' = Cover Girl 'Divine')

One of those mentions how much cheapie E.L.F. High Definition powder is very like the pricier Makeup Forever version.

I just recently figured out that Bedazzled Biscotti (by Cover Girl) is a pretty good dupe for Urban Decay's Midnight Cowboy.

I want to know where girlfriend lives that she is finding Bourjois e/s for $5, or at all, for that matter.
If I don't finish my Etherea eye shadow in 2014, I will eat my own head.
