The Dupe Thread: If you have... you don't really need... - Page 29

post #841 of 854

I went through all my mac eyeshadows, and this is what i found:

Brun, Dark edge (from tempting quad), Concrete and Mystery are extremely similar to eachother. I wish i knew this earlier, because i basically have 4 almost identical colors.  

Rich flesh is very similar to both Cork and Wedge. Its like if Cork and Wedge had a baby it would be Rich flesh. But they are all so similar that you really only need one of them imo.

Haux and Quarry is very similar. Haux is a tiny bit darker. Maybe a TINY bit more red if you really study it. All in all you dont need both. 

Mulch, Bronze and Romp are pretty similar. Romp is a bit more gold. Mulch is a bit more plum. I wouldnt have gotten all of them if i knew how similar they were. 

Graphology is like a matte and a tiny bit darker version of Contrast


Seedling and Omega are identical in the pan, but the texture is different, and swatched on the skin Seedling is a BIT more gray/taupey. But you definately dont need both. 

Handwritten and Embark are pretty much identical colors. But because Handwritten is a matte2 it has slightly better texture imo.

Hey is very similar to Naked lunch, but creamier texture. Its also very similar to All That Glitters, but ATG is slightly more peach.

Brule and Blanc type are very similar. But Blanc Type is a TINY bit lighter and has better payoff. (matte2)

:)

and of course other ways around (don't need jest if you have all that glitters, etc) although the textures are different, they are all very similar in colour in my opinion.

that's all i can think of right now. i'm sure others would be able to help a lot more.
Have to disagree on this one, All That Glitters is tan/beige (on me anyway, I'm NW20) and Jete is pinky/peach. But Jete and Jest and Hush are all similer.

Pink Source and Pink Venus are close. Mancatcher and Lavender Sky are close too, on me anyway.

Really?

All That Glitters looks extremely pinky/peach on me.

But then again I´ve got a very yellow skintone.

Any dupes for Naked Bliss mattene? I'm looking for a nude l/s that is not too warm and has a little pink-mauve going on.

Wow, came across this just googling dupes.I love that it's here, I do agree with lots of these dupes! With that said (what a first post right lol) I have to say, though Brun, and Mystery are similar, there are differences within them. While on my eyes they turn out much different. I've used Brun and Mystery both with All That Glitters and both had a different look for what I was trying to accomplish. Mystery gave a lighter smokey look than Brun. I also find Brun to be cooler then Mystery. So to me, they are not exact dupes for one another. If you like a darker shadow go with Brun, if you want a litter warmer color go with Mystery. I have both and have lots of uses for each. Also FTR, I own Concrete as well. This color is more of a cooler-toned shadow than Brun and Mystery. This is better for cooler combos and looks. Its personal preference but I am glad I have all 3 :).

Cranberry has more red in it than SV imo.

Late reply, I know, but Hue or Fresh Brew could fit the bill.  Naked Bliss is really nice.

Blackground, though it doesn't have the blue glitter/shimmer flecks that Sculpt seems to have.
