High End Shadows: Drugstore Dupe!

I am very drawn to taupe or pink shades with a nice satin or shimmer finish. One of my all-time favorite eyeshadow colors (which as you can see has been shown some major love), was discontinued, but I have a dupe!

Bolt BlogsI absolute love my Benefit shadow but was happy to see how similar some others were in my collection. I always knew these colors were close but never realized just how much when swatched side by side:

Urban Decay Sin: Every so slightly more taupe ($19)

Wet ‘N Wild Walking On Eggshells Eyelid Shade: Super creamy pink ($1.99)

Benefit Leggy: A touch more pink and sheer (Benefit shadows $20)

What do you think? Do you have any good dupes? Let me know below!

    Urban decay sin is my ultimate fave shade so it’s nice to know there are others similar if I can’t get hold of it!! X

    Another good dupe for sin is the Benefit cream eyeshadow in R.S.V.P. and the Pur cosmetics eye polish in Satin – if you want a cream shadow option.
