|MAC Fashion Fix Pro Longwear Eyeshadow|
These ProLongwear shadows are disappointingly no where remotely near as good as the previously released Pro Longwear shadows - they're patchier, less pigmented and chalkier, and need quite a bit of working with. I loved the previous Pro Longwear shades, and have most of them. These... hmmm.
Back to Fashion Fix. It's a satin-matte finish. It's supposedly "Dark Cool Slate Grey". It's a good a description as any; it's not quite a taupe, it's not quite a brown, it's not quite a grey. Like I said, an interesting - I can see this being useful as a lid colour with a darker crease, or as a socket colour with a really light lid shade.
It's €21.50. This is not cheap, not for a single eyeshadow. So in the interest of Dupe WeekTM ;-) I thought I'd try to find a cheaper dupe.
And find one I did.
I've found dupes for MAC eyeshadows before in the MUA coffers (eg this great dupe for MAC Club) so I thought I'd head straight there to see...
|L -> R: MAC Fashion Fix, MUA #19|
MUA Shade #19 is a reasonable enough approximation of this. It's also matte. It's a cool-toned brown, perhaps a tiny bit slightly warmer than MAC Fashion Fix.
