DUPES for MAC Satin Taupe vs. CoverGirl Tapestry Taupe



Wet N Wild Nutty Eyeshadow $1.99



I purchased this CoverGirl single eyeshadow in Tapestry Taupe at CVS (reg. $4.99) for $2.49 with a coupon after hearing it was a close dupe to MAC Satin Taupe. And i have had the Wet N Wild Nutty eyeshadow for a while. Well, i couldnt really tell if they were dupes until i had all 3 so i decided to go ahead an purchase the CG shadow - it cant hurt to have an extra of one of your favorite shades!! BTW i totally forgot to photograph the MAC eyeshadow, lol, sorry! I was more focused on the swatches. *Photos are mine.

3. Wet N Wild Nutty eyeshadow single - also a dupe
They're really similar!!! Dont you think? As far as formula and finish go they are nearly identical, although MAC Satin Taupe is a tad more silky feeling, and CG Tapestry Taupe is a tad more light reflective. Otherwise theyre almost exactly the same... and technically IRL i could barely tell a difference at all.
This review started out as a review onlyon CG Tapestry Taupe but i then decided to do a dupe post instead. I'll do an EOTD with this soon! Thanks for reading, commenting, and liking! Please follow :)

  3. I love CG's tapestry taupe! I'm not so sure NYX's rootbeer is as close of a dupe though because I have that shadow and it's a pretty dark, cooler-toned brown. :)
