List of MAC/NYX dupes!

So I found some lists of MAC/NYX dupes! There are sooooo many!!!!

Review: NYX Eyeshadow Trio - Golden/Rust/Walnut Bronze (+ MAC dupes)

Hey everyone!

First of all, I wanted to say that I'm really sorry for the lack of posts. It was my first semester in college and I was just getting used to things. Now Winter Break is here, and my plan was to write a lot of posts, but now I'm leaving for New York. However, I figured that I should at least do a couple before I leave.

So today, I'm going to review the NYX Eyeshadow Trio in Golden/Rust/Walnut Bronze. It consists of three warm shades perfect for an autumn look! Two of the shades are very wearable for an everyday look while the other is a bit more dramatic, but perfect for the crease and to just add a pop of color.

The colors are very pigmented! I bought this at ULTA for $8.39, but I used a coupon and bought some other stuff so I got it for cheaper. You can find these three shades in the NYX single eyeshadows, but they cost about $6 each, so it would be better to buy the trios. Some people have said that the quality of the NYX singles are better, but I really see no difference. These shades are perfect as an all-over lid color. Also, the colors are perfect for a Bollywood/Desi bridal look! There is very minimal fallout and with a primer, the colors won't budge at all!

Here are the swatches:

I used the NYX Eyeshadow Base in Skin Tone underneath the swatches. (I shall be reviewing that product soon!)

So now for the most amazing news ever! These three eyeshadows have are comparable to some colors of MAC eyeshadows!

- NYX Rust = MAC Cranberry (They look exactly the same!)
- NYX Golden = MAC Amber Lights (Again, pretty much the same!)
- NYX Walnut Bronze = MAC Twinks (a little lighter though) or MAC Antiqued

So I'm not so sure about the last one. I don't own any MAC eyeshadows, but I did check these out when I went to the MAC store. I'm going to check out MAC Twinks and MAC Antiqued again to see if it could really be called a dupe. If anyone has these colors, do let me know if they're close in comparison. I shall keep you all updated on more dupes and let me know if you know of any more!

So that's all for now folks!

Do let me know if you own any of the NYX trios and in what colors!

Sum vir.
