Mac Eyeshadow Dupes

I love Mac. Their eyeshadows are so nice, but if you don’t want to shell out $15 to $20 for one eyeshadow, there are several dupes you might want to check into. NYX makes quite a few Mac dupes and so does Wet and Wild. Here is a list of dupes. If you know of a dupe for any product, please let me know!!

Essie Poppy-razzi Polish: Experiment With Me!!!

This was such a neat effect.  I had no idea that white polish would change my neon polishes.  I learn something new everyday:)  Have you tried the Essie Poppy-razzi polish in Camera or any other color with the white polish under it?  How about another brand’s neon polish?  Do share your experience with me!!

Eyelash Primer Showdown: Urban Decay versus Dior Show

Dior Show Maximizer or Urban Decay Eyelash Primer?  My pick is Urban Decay.  The formula is slightly thicker so it takes less work to build up product.  The brush is smaller, which is just a preference of mine.  Plus, Urban Decay is several dollars cheaper, which is always good!  They are both excellent products!  Nothing wrong with either one of them. You can’t go wrong!
