Drugstore NARS Dupes!

By  |  0 Comments

While out shopping today I came across some interesting makeup finds!  I am OBSESSED with NARS makeup, it’s almost ridiculous how much I love their stuff, but sometimes I can’t justify spending their prices for certain products (mostly eyeshadow).

NARS Portobello (Depotted)
Maybelline 70D

To me, neutrals are neutrals. These colors aren’t EXACT, perfect dupes but honestly they’re close enough for me! If I could go back and do it all over again I would definitely pass on Portobello and just stick with the Maybelline 70D set. The Maybelline duo is slightly cooler than Portobello and it isn’t quite as pigmented but for as little as I use colors like this exclusively I would totally be ok with the slight differences.

As far as the quality of the Maybelline shadows go, I’m surprised at how silky smooth they are.  Granted, their color payoff isn’t as high as the NARS shadow but a few extra coats of shadow will remedy that situation.  I was a little afraid that for $2.95 and $3.95 I would be getting some powdery, white shadows that had no color but this isn’t the case at all.  These shadows have a satiny finish to them and blend really easily.

Any other dupes that you guys know of and love?  Let me know!

Until next time :)
