MAKEUP GEEK ‘TYPHOON’ vs VIOLET VOSS ‘SMASHLEE’ (LAURA LEE PALETTE)
New dupe! I came across this guy by accident. Back when I compared UD CRUX and MAC TRY ME ON (teal and gold duochromes) a bunch of you asked if I’d compare all of my blue/green/gold duochromes. So I pulled a bunch of them out to see which ones were the most alike. And while these two are a lot more green than the others that I’ll be comparing, it turns out that they’re nearly exact dupes for each other!
TYPHOON is one of MUG’S duochrome shadows. It’s a deep teal with a strong emerald green shift. And it’s only $6!
SMASHLEE is in the VIOLET VOSS X LAURA LEE PALETTE, which I believe was $45. I know it’s LE and currently sold out but I wouldn’t be surprised if they restocked it again at some point. Of course $45 is a lot more than $6 but you’re getting 19 other shadows as well.
So if you’ve got the LAURA LEE PALETTE then you can safely pass on TYPHOON. But if you weren’t able to get it and you love this color then you’ve got an inexpensive alternative!
Also I’ll be posting that blue/gold comparison sometime soon!
Same comment as above. Just wanted to check the box to notify me if anyone responds because I’m having the hardest time finding a dupe for “typhoon” 🙂
I am a little confused. Is the Lauralee “smashlee” color the best dupe for MUG’s typhoon? or is it MAC’s try me on and ud’s crux?
Smashlee. Colourpop up and up is very similar as well.
I know right! Also mug flamethrower is a dupe for the color bitty in the palette. And insomniac in the manny nya palette is like the color Yoshi on steroids.
