Finally! This shit has taken me FOR- EVA- AH! After this I never want to see those godforsaken Pastel palettes ever again! You may not have picked up on this… but these palettes definitely weren’t my cup of tea. However they have decent reviews on sephora so take my opinion with a grain of salt. And say what you will about Huda but the woman knows how to create a unique color story. I had a bitch of a time trying to dupe these palettes. Thank the Gods that this is the last one! Oh and fyi the shimmers were basically unusable until I did a half assed job of repressing them (I poked at them up with a metal spatula and then smooshed them back down using the same spatula). They look hideous but they perform much better now. Okay let’s get on with it!
▪️1 vs Devinah Cosmetics London Fog ($5, -20% w/ affil code BEAUTYCULT)- we’re off to a bad start here because this first one isn’t a dupe. They look similar in these fingertip swatches but on the eyes London Fog is a good bit darker. It’s also worth noting that 1 and 3 look basically the same on the eyes, imo
Other options- Devinah Fenella, Shroud Cosmetics Creepin’ It Real, Cloud Beauty Jeanne, ColourPop Flux
▪️2 vs Touch of Glam Mistletoe ($8, -15% w/ affil code BEAUTYCULT)- 2 is a sheer yellow green with blue microglitter. Mistletoe is a damn near perfect color dupe with a much better formula
Other options- TOG Leprechaun, Clionadh Chandelier, Looxi Limon
▪️3 vs Sydney Grace Sea Foam ($5, -15% w/ non-affil code BEAUTYCULT)- 3 is a minty green matte. Sea Foam is a little lighter. As mentioned previously, 3 is very similar to 1. 1 pulls a little more blue but I can barely tell the difference on the eyes
Other options- ColourPop Lookin’ Fresh, ColourPop Checkmate, MUG Shore Thing
▪️4 vs ColourPop Ladybird ($6, -10% w/ affil code BEAUTYCULT)- before I destroyed my palette, 4 was a mixture of light green and taupe. All mixed together it has a sheer pearlized base with silver sparkle. Ladybird is a little warmer
Other options- ColourPop I Heart This, Nabla Water Dream, Nabla Glasswork, Devinah Tallulah, ABH Metal, Clionadh Elixir
▪️5 vs Beauty Escape Andromeda ($5.50, -15% w/ non-affil code BEAUTYCULT)- 5 is a soft yellow green. Andromeda has a similar base color but it’s more opaque and less glittery. 2 and 5 are very similar as well
Other options- Looxi Triton, Looxi Glazed and Confused, Clionadh Sol, Devinah Gelicide
▪️6 vs ColourPop Soo Good ($4.50, -10% w/ affil code BEAUTYCULT)- 6 is a peachy pink gold with pink sparkle. Soo Good looks exactly the same to me
Other options- CP Painted Lady, ABH Gem, MUG I’m Peachless, Nabla Lazy Days, BEC Pegasus, Looxi Nova, CP Take a Break
▪️7 vs ColourPop Charge It ($4.50, -10% w/ affil code BEAUTYCULT)- 7 is a muted matte coral. Charge It is more pink
Other options- Sydney Grace Creme Brulee, Sydney Grace Honesty, Devinah Penelope, CP The News, Sydney Grace Payton’s Puppy
▪️8 vs Devinah Cosmetics Everlasting Gobstoppers ($8, -20% w/ affil code BEAUTYCULT)- 8 is an aqua blue with green sparkle. Everlasting Gobstoppers has a similar base color and sparkly finish but it shifts teal and pink. And it’s much prettier tbh
Initially I thought that Fair Beauty Treasure Trove was going to be a perfect dupe because the pans looked identical (before I savagely mutilated my palette that is). But they’re actually pretty different. Also if you’re interested in marbled shadows, check out Fair Beauty! Their pans maintain their marbled design so you can actually transfer the pattern onto your eyelid. Or you can swirl them together to create a solid color.
Other options- Clionadh Cryosphere, Sydney Grace Mint Green, Sydney Grace Fin, Devinah Mist, Devinah Inamorata
▪️9 vs Lethal Cosmetics Yonder ($6)- 9 is a matte teal. Yonder is a little more green.
Other options- Nabla New Heaven, ABH Aqua, ColourPop Muscle Beach
One last thing- here’s a side by side with the CP Mint to Be palette. As you can see there’s 3 somewhat similar colors but the rest are pretty different.
Tada! All done! Next dupe project will be Norvina vol 4!
