URBAN DECAY DUPES!

Hey everyone!

So I’ve been out on the lookout for dupes, and I found that Emily from emilynoel83 (GO CHECK HER OUT AND SUBSCRIBE TO HER!) had some great MAC dupes!

Here’s Emily’s video:

But today I’m here to tell you guys about some phenomenal URBAN DECAY and MAC dupes that I found from mainly Wet ‘n Wild eyeshadow palettes/trios which I am in LOVE with! These eyeshadows are not only creamy, beautiful, and quite affordable, but also are über pigmented whether they are shimmery or matte eyeshadows! These Wet ‘n Wild palettes run anywhere from $1.99 to $4.99 which is amazingly affordable and can be found at any drugstore (even my local Lucky’s grocery store). The following dupes are mainly for the Urban Decay Naked palette and the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette. I have also found dupes for the Urban Decay Glinda palette! I also found MAC and Urban Decay eyeshadows that are virtually identical. Without further ado, here are some dupes as well as their swatches.

The Wet ‘n Wild trio Walking on Eggshells is a great dupe for a few Urban Decay shades in the Naked and Naked Basics palette. The “browbone” color from the trio (a creamy white shimmery shade) is an amazing dupe for Urban Decay’s Virgin and Venus. Virgin is slightly pinker and less shimmery, but Venus is virtually identical to the “browbone” color. The “eyelid” color (a shimmery pinky/champagne color) is the perfect dupe for Urban Decay’s Sin, and the “crease” color is a great dupe for Urban Decay’s Smog! Smog is slightly darker and more shimmery, but UD’s (Urban Decay) Buck is the perfect matte color that can be duped by the WnW (Wet ‘n Wild) Walking on Eggshells “crease” color.

Next, I have dupes from WnW’s Blue Had Me at Hello palette which features eight amazing shadows! The dupes are for UD’s Creep and Crave which are a shimmery black shade and a matte black called the “definer” shadows in their palette. Emily above mentions that the matte black from the WnW palette is also a dupe with even better formulation for MAC’s Carbon. However, I beg to disagree as even though the WnW matte black is beautiful, UD’s Crave still reigns as my go-to matte black.

Now WnW’s palette Comfort Zone is also an eight-shadow palette that features amazing greens and neutral colors! I found an exact duplicate of UD Darkhorse with one of the darker brown shades called also the “definer” shadow from the WnW palette.

Now I have some dupes for the UD Glinda Palette from the WnW eight-shadow palette in Petal Pusher. They aren’t exact dupes but by mixing some of the shades and building up the color, the same colors from UD can be created.

Here I have UD’s Walk of Shame or WOS (Naked Basics) and Foxy (In Naked 2 palette and Naked Basics) which are exact copies of MAC’s Brulé and MAC’s Vanilla. Compared to Vanilla, which is more pink-based, Brulé is more of a yellow-based skin-colored shade.

My last dupe is for MAC’s Satin Taupe which is the “eyelid” shade from WnW’s Silent Treatment trio. These colors are perfect dupes.

Beautiful Mascara Application

Here is Wayne Goss’s video on this amazing trick he discovered! (Oh by the way, if you don’t know who he is, go check him out and SUBSCRIBE to him! He is absolutely amazing!) I tried this out, and I’m hooked. All you need to do is take a little bit of mascara or liquid liner, coat the tips of an eyelash comb, and comb through your lashes. INSTANT lash definition and NO clumping! I learned that layering on mascara with this technique gives you some of the best results!

Would You Rather TAG (Beauty Edition) + My First Post!

Hey everyone! This is my first blog post, and I’m super stoked! I can’t wait to be posting more for you guys! I already have a few things planned, and maybe a video tutorial or two! I hope you guys enjoy! Yes, I did a tag as my first post. WHY NOT?! 😀 so here we go!

QUESTIONS:
1. Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?

This is a tough one, but I’m going to say palettes and eyeshadows.  It’s easier to create a whole makeup look with mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, etc. compared to ONLY eyeshadows and eyeshadow palettes. 

2. Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?

Chop my hair off. It can grow back. 

3. Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?

Coral. More versatile in my opinion. 

4. If you had $1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup?

MAKEUP!

5. Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?

Eyeliner as lipstick. I do it all the time! If I need a bright purple lip, I’ll take Urban Decay’s 24/7 Pencil Liner in Psychedelic Sister to line my lips!

6. Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?

I haven’t tried much MAC, so I’d say Sephora. 

7. Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life?

Lip color. 

8. Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?

Summer clothes in winter. I sleep in shorts 365 days a year. 

9. Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round?

BRIGHT!!!!!!

10. Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?

Eye because I NEED my Maybelline Baby Lips in Quenched. 

11. Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun?

I live in messy buns. 

12. Would your rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?

Not able to paint my nails. 

13. Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday?

Shave my eyebrows. They can grow back. Typical answer 😛

14. Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?

Nail polish. Definitely.
