Whatâ€™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 itâ€™s very expensive and I am on a shopping ban or a budget.
Option1 â€“ Remove my ban, break my Piggy Bank and go for it.
Option2 â€“ 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 â€“ 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 â€“ Expensive Pink was on my mind for very long. But after having had so many eyeshadows already I didnâ€™t want to invest one more. But this Pinkish Goldenish Pearly Shimmer was calling put to me. I wanted it. (Check Anamikaâ€™s review)
I found out a dupe of MAC Expensive Pink, which isÂ InglotÂ (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 â€“ Intense Shimmers- – Rose 03 â€“ Glittering loose powder eyeshadow with built in brush.
Itâ€™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. Itâ€™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.
