Are they a dupe? Kat Von D + Makeup Revolution


Dupes: Kat Von D + Makeup Revolution Shade + Light Palette

Are they really dupes?

The resemblance between these two palettes is a given. If you were to hold them both side by side you will almost think they’re the same thing. This is why we have companies like Makeup Revolution who dupe high end cosmetics so well.  This gives makeup enthusiasts more opportunity to get some products that would other wise be expensive and out of reach.
Kat Von D has some amazing products and so does Makeup Revolution. One is high-end and one is drugstore. The difference in price between these two is on another level.
I myself own products from both brands and I love them both dearly. Obviously there are some things about the products that I do and don’t like from both.
Now here are the products that everyone is talking about…

The colors look almost identical from the picture above. The names of the actual palette are rearranged but are basically the same thing. This is a dupe after all, right?

Here are some of the products that Makeup Revolution has supposedly duped in the past. Note that these are not all the products but just a few…

Makeup Revolution Ultra Strobe Cream = Mac Strobe Cream
Makeup Revolution Strobe Balms = Mac Cream Colour Bases in Hush and Pearl
Makeup Revolution Duo Face Sculpt= Makeup Forever Sculpting Duo
Makeup Revolution Pro Illuminate = Mac Oh Darling or Charlotte Tilbury bar of gold Highlighter
Makeup Revolution Ultra cream Contour Palette = ABH Cream Contour Kit
Makeup Revolution Ultra Powder Contour Palette = ABH Powder Contour
Makeup Revolution The One Foundation = Mac Face and Body
Makeup Revolution Anti Shine Balm = Stila Anti Shine Balm
Makeup Revolution The One Concealer = Benefit Fake Up Concealer
Makeup Revolution Aqua Priming Base = Smashbox Primer Water
Makeup Revolution Iconic Smokey Palette = Urban Decay Naked Smokey
Makeup Revolution Iconic 1 = Urban Decay Naked 1
Makeup Revolution Iconic 2= Urban Decay Naked 2
Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 = Urban Decay Naked 3
Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro 1 = Lorac Pro 1
Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro 2 = Lorac Pro 2
Makeup Revolution I love Chocolate Palette = Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette
Makeup Revolution I love Caramel Palette = Too Faced Semi-Sweet Palette
Makeup Revolution Radiance Palette = Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette
and the list goes on and on …

What do I think?

I think both palettes are great. They both have pigmentation and the color selection is heaven for someone who loves neutral matte shadows . I like the packaging of the Kat Von D palette but at the same time I would have preferred the packaging to be like the old contour palette. 
Honestly, it comes down to what you like and can afford. It took me a long time to get the Kat Von D palette because of the price tag but the Makeup Revolution one is super affordable. Basically you are getting the same colors in a palette at a reduced price.
Makeup Revolution is known for duping higher end products as you can see from above…
