What’s the first thing I do when I like an expensive makeup product for myself? Something that I fall in love with and dying to get. But it’s very expensive and I am on a shopping ban or a budget.
Option1 – Remove my ban, break my Piggy Bank and go for it.
Option2 – Act nasty. Force my hubby to buy me the stuff , promising him that I will not ask for any gift for the next 3-5 months
Option3 – Look for a cheaper dupe.
I definitely go for the dupe option first!! If the dupe is equally good and so much cheaper why not. I am not buying dupe of some life saving drug. Come on!! I have even gone from Dupe ka Dupe. Before you all think I am some kanjoos. Pls check what I am talking about.
MAC Eyeshadow – Expensive Pink was on my mind for very long. But after having had so many eyeshadows already I didn’t want to invest one more. But this Pinkish Goldenish Pearly Shimmer was calling put to me. I wanted it. (Check Anamika’s review)
I found out a dupe of MAC Expensive Pink, which is Inglot (407- P -ES-2) which is for INR300(Refill only) + Duo box INR 400.
The pics may not do justice to the right color but trust me they are very very similar.
Now time for even more sasta dupe. I got my hands on Bourjois Paris – Intense Shimmers- – Rose 03 – Glittering loose powder eyeshadow with built in brush.
It’s a lovely pinkish, goldenish shimmery shade. Almost 2 tone. It shines as the light reflects on it. Ideal shade for a day or night outing. It’s in a tiny jar with a cute brush inserted into it. I love the packaging. Very convenient. No additional brush required. Hygienic. You can pick the right amount required. No spill.
