drugstore dupes

so one of my absolute favorite things about cosmetic companies is their affinity for creating amazing products that their customers fall in love with, but discontinuing them or having limited edition collections. MAC is famous for their limited edition collections, and there was a time when it was necessary to know every new product that they would unveil. but when collections start coming out every week- it got to be too much to keep up with. one of my all time favorite eyeshadows, just so happens to be a member of one of these limited edition collections and I made it a personal mission to find a dupe before I used up the last of the product.

The original on the left (MAC "Glamour Check!" from the Starflash Collection) and the drugstore dupe (Revlon Satin "Shimmering Sienna") look different in the packaging, but when swatched both are a silky bronze amber shadow with fine shimmer.

it's basically impossible to tell the different between the two (Revlon & MAC)

this color will be gorgeous for warm smokey looks during the fall and winter. with a nice bright highlight on the inner corner and a matte deeper chocolate brown on the crease and outer corner, this shimmery shade all over the lid would really pop. run a bit of the lid color along the lower lash line and you have a smokey look that can look day or night. the bright amber will make blue and green eyes stand out, and make darker eyes glow. gorgeous!
