Hey guys, so today I’m going to be bringing you
six eye shadow palettes that are
better alternatives to the more expensive options.
So, basically these are dupes,
but they are not similar enough to be called “dupes”.
They’re just eye shadows that happen to be very totally similar to
the more expensive palette option
that I’m gonna be presenting you with.
Or they’re totally similar, same price,
but there’s either more shadows in one of them that are better quality
or they’re just however many shadows
that are a better quality for the same price.
So it’s kind of like somewhere in between those two realms.
When I was thinking of this video,
I was thinking of all of the times
where I really wanted to buy an expensive palette,
but also didn’t want to shell out 12 dollars per single eye shadow to dupe it.
Because sometimes when you dupe a palette with single shadows,
it ends up being more expensive than the more expensive version of it.
Technically, so I thought why not go through all of my palettes and see like what similar
what could actually replace the more expensive one
without you having to really spend too much more money.
So I really hope you guys find this helpful.
If you do, please give this video a thumbs-up
so that other people searching the topic can discover the video.
But, yeah. Let us begin this swatch party.
It’s pretty much what’s gonna be? Swatch par-tay.
The first I’m gonna be discussing are
Urban Decay 的Naked Smoky 和 Melt的 Gunmetal
the Urban Decay Naked Smoky and the Melt Gunmetal stack.
If you have been wanting to pick up the Melt shadows, but
four or five shadows for $50 is a little bit out of your price range
or you are like not comfortable spending that much on so few shadows.
那么我强烈推荐Urban Decay 的这盘Naked Smoky
I definitely recommend checking out the Urban Decay Naked Smokey palette.
They are very very totally similar.
I would say some of the shades are pretty exact
只是Melt stack 的金属感更强
although the Melt stack has a much more interesting range of metallics in it.
但这盘Naked Smoky 的颜色非常棒
But there is a great range within this Naked Smoky one,
我觉得Naked Smoky 比较干 质地滑顺
I’ll say the Naked Smoky slightly more dry and smooth
whereas the Melt stack is more dense and smooth,
so that the Melt stack will blend a little bit easier,
but you are getting a better value in the Naked Smoky
Naked Smoky 的性价比更高
than you would be for the Melt stack.
So it’s a perfect tradeoff.
Urban Decay Moondust 的 绝佳替代
A really bitchin’ alternative for the Urban Decay Moondust Palette
is the Elf Prism Eyeshadow Palette.
These are very very very similar in formula.
I would say the only difference is that
Urban Decay 更干
the Urban Decay ones are a little bit more dry
a little bit more glittery.
Whereas the Elf ones are still kind of dry,
not as glittery. They are like a slightly chunky metallic.
However, as you can see there are some very identical
near exact colors between the two,
so it’s definitely a super good tradeoff.
The Moondust palette is a little bit more effort laden
like you have to put in a lot of effort to get these really to show up
and give that big pop of glittery goodness whereas the Elf one is more effortless.
And I feel like since this is very cheap that’s a really good upside to it.
You are spending a lot of money with this and having to work a little bit more with it,
whereas with this one you are getting a lot of the same tones
and the formula slightly better.
These next two are probably the most unexpected
alternative for one another and that is the
Anastasia Beverly Hills Mario 和Natasha Denona Star
Anastasia Beverly Hills Mario palette and the Natasha Denona Star palette.
As you can see, the tones in here are pretty similar.
The Star palette obviously has a wide, wider range of textures and finishes,
whereas the Mario palette is kind of
all mattes and satins with a little bit of metallics thrown in.
I feel like this is a really good tradeoff for those of you who’s been wanting to splurge
on the Natasha one but just can’t bring yourself to do it
这是非常好的替代 而且Mario 比昂贵的Natasha Denona 好太多了
because the Mario one honestly is way better than this expensive Natasha Denona one.
The Mario palette is like truly buttery,
like…I feel like everything just kind of like
you slap it on and it’s just like blended
There is no real work you have to do
whereas the Natasha Denona one.
The metallics in here honestly are not good
not good at all.
So I feel like if you are looking to buy this
for the metallics definitely pass on it
and pick up the Mario palette instead.
Mario 的金属质感 哑光和珠光更顺滑 容易上色
Because the metallics, the satins are a lot smoother and a lot easier to work with.
And they are also way more fucking affordable.
This next one, you guys let me just preface
by saying and finally when I’m picked up the Viseart.
Viseart, how would the hell you say it, Warm Mattes palette
Honestly, don’t spend your $80 on this.
Seriously I’m like so let down
because this was so raved about and I was just like…
说实话 有那么多质量更好的眼影 可以选择
Honestly there are so many eyeshadows I have, they are so much better.
例如我手上这盘被称为 Jouer 的替代色
This is a dupe for the Jouer, what is this called,
the Essential Matte & Shimmer Eyeshadow Palette.
As you can see the tones in here are very very spot-on,
aside from like the cool toned, the blue grays that are in the Viseart one,
and the Jouer one is so much cheaper, so much cheaper!
And I find that they are both full of really dense,
almost gridy mattes. So if you have dry eyelids
or any dryness going on, make sure that you use a really hydrating eyeshadow primer
before you use both of these or they are going to really kind of look
cakey and texturize up there.
I know many so people love the Viseart palette.
But it seriously was not for me, I don’t understand why it is $84.
Lastly, for those whose view either refuse to buy the Kylie Palette,
because of whatever stigma you have attached to her
or you just don’t think they’re worth the money.
I have a combo comparison for you.
这盘 Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaiseance
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette.
与Kylie 属于同一色系 颜色更多
You are getting way more shadows and it is the same exact color family.
The Kylie shadows are a bit smooth,
almost too smooth to the point where you kind of have to a digging into the pans a little bit.
与Modern Renaissance 相比一点都不飞粉 之前说过 我的那盘飞粉非常严重
Absolutely no fallout whereas the Modern Renaissance palette, as I’ve said before my channel has tons of fallout.
But on the upside you are kind of using a little bit lash shadow.
There’s really not a huge tradeoff between these two other than the fact
只是Anastasia 这盘和Kylie这盘价格差不多 颜色更多一些
that the Anastasia one you are getting way more shadows for the same price as the Kylie one.
And the formula is just slightly better in the Modern Renaissance.
Until I used this Kylie palette, I’ve never really come across shadows that were almost too smooth to be really good,
like these are just way too smooth, smooth, too silky, to work to their best potential.
I feel like there’s no patchness there’s just something a little bit weird about them.
So I’ve got upside to this video.
Hope you guys found these alternatives really helpful.
