Dupes: Yes? No? Maybe So? Edition #1

Eye Shadow Dupes

Finding inexpensive dupes for items that we love are something that I live for. If I can find something that looks, works and stays on for as long as my ‘expensive’ item I will repurchase it, till I can’t anymore. There are just so many brands out there and they are constantly putting new items on the market; it makes you want to buy everything. Sometimes you do and then the moment when you find a drugstore dupe for that expensive shadow and then the guilt beings.

Normally, if I purchase something but then later find a dupe for it: I will wear one item on one part of my face and the other on the other side.  In order for me to determine exactly which one I love more and which one I will keep.  I try not to keep products that are extremely similar (dupes) that way I can keep trying different products instead of keeping ones that I won’t use. I guess you can say that gives me more space to store new products.

For this post I have 6 main products that I have discovered were dupes for each other. Some look different in the pan but when you swatch them they look completely different. Also, some of the formulation differs a tad bit; and also with the others it’s almost an identical formulation/ finish.

MUFE Artist Shadow D750 $21.00
NYX Prismatic Golden Peach $5.99

MUFE Artist Shadow ME728 $21.00
NYX Prismatic Liquid Gold $5.99

NYX Nude Matte Eyeshadow  $4.99
Mac Matte Eyeshadow  $16.00

NYX Loose Pearl Eyeshadow $3.00
Mac Pigment Eyeshadow  $22.00

L’Oreal Infallible 24hr Eyeshadow $7.99
Chanel D’Ombre Long wear Luminous Eye shadow  $36.00

Revlon Illuminance Cream Shadows in Not Just Nudes $7.99
Smashbox Limitless 15-hour Cream Shadow  $ 16.50

This is a new series of that I am starting here on my blog. I will be posting a dupes post twice a month or three times depending on how many dupes I have found. If you think you have a dupe that was not yet mentioned, please let me know. I would love to hear what products you think are dupes.

Thank you for reading dolls, until next time dolls.
