dupes/alternatives masterpost ✨

Hey loves, this masterpost was partially requested and I’m so excited.  I recommend to do your research before buying the dupe, some of the dupes are better than others. Some brands are repeated. Here is a dupe masterpost for MAC lipsticks. Here is a dupe masterpost for liquid lipsticks. Here is a spreadsheet of Coastal Scents eyeshadows to MAC eyeshadow dupes. Most of these dupes I found online so I do not take credit for any of those but some I researched myself. This is under read more because this list is very long. :) If you have any more dupes or questions, feel free to send them in.

Purple Reign.

I purchased a bunch of glitters from Violet Voss a while back and this is  my first chance to actually use them. I was amazed at how easily the products applied! I didn’t use very much product and I didn’t have a panic attack because I was getting glitter all over my room, so that’s great.


The Steps:

1)  Apply ‘Tangerine’ from the Lorac Mega Pro 2 palette to crease (or you can use  any orange)

2) Follow with ‘Saddle’ from the same palette (or any brown) 

3) Cover lid with Rimmel Scandaleyes eye shadow stick in ‘Blackmail’ 

4) Get rid of harsh lines using ‘Black’ from Lorac Mega Pro 2 and a crease brush

5) Cover lid with Violet Voss’ ‘Brooklyn’ Glitter Using adhesive

6) Draw line as shown using Color Tattoo by Eyestudio in Painted Purple

7) Apply Nyx Eye Pencil in ‘Purple’ to waterline

8) Smudge ‘Deep Purple’ from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Self- Made Palette into lower lash line to get rid of harsh lines


Additional Products Used:

Face: Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow- Ebony, Mac Studio Fix Foundation NC45, Face Studio Master Concealer in Medium 40, Ben Nye SK-3 Shadow Wheel, Ben Nye Banana Powder, Black Radiance Pressed Foundation Powder- Rich Mahogany and Ebony, and Mac Soft & Gentle Highlight

Eyelashes: Andrea 45 Black


Lips: Nyx Liquid Suede in ‘Amethyst’ , Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in ‘Abu Dhabi’ , and Nyx Eye Pencil in ‘Purple’ to create the perfect ombre

Lorac Mega Pro 2 Palette - launching December 2015!

I really loved the shades in the Mega Pro 1, despite not being able to get a hold oof it last year. I also love how unique the product was. This year just not as excited about the shades in this palette. I’m also uneasy about how they will launch this palette considering how unsettling it was last year.

What do you ladies think?
