The AMT dupe guidelines are as follows:
1. Must be sold individually. Dupes in other palettes are only helpful if you already own the palette.
2. Must be cruelty free. Sorry mac.
3. Must be good quality.
4. Lastly I do my best to find affordable options but I don’t have any $2 eyeshadows. They’re mostly in the $5-6 range. The combined cost of the dupes is ALWAYS going to be more than the cost of the palette. I’m not a fucking wizard. Jeez. Sorry about that. Every time I do a dupe post some helpful person (and by ‘helpful person’ I mean ‘asshole’. Hopefully that was implied.) likes to let me know that it would cheaper to just buy the palette. My right eyelid has already started twitching in anticipation.

All and all I’m pretty happy with these dupes. For the most part the abh mattes are pigmented than the colors I compared them with. But that seems to be making them difficult to blend so I don’t know if that’s a plus or minus. I just thought it was worthy noting. If you guys have any other dupe suggestions, feel free to leave them in the comments!! The Viseart dark mattes palette also has a lot of similar shades
