Covergirl Tropical Fusion Eyeshadow Dupes
A few weeks ago, I blogged about Covergirl's new tropical fusion eyeshadow. I've had several requests for this colorful palette and I know why! Not to make matters worse but, I'm going to give ya'll a few more reasons why you need to grab this.
I was instantly drawn into the beautiful green shade as I'm TOTALLY fixated with green this year and last. It may be the combination of my green eyes or the impossiblty of getting ahold of in Nars Zulu nail polish. How's that saying go - we always want the impossible.. Not only impossible but, extremely limited. Hard to find + Rarity = Cha ching!
On to the good stuff. Last night was the first time I had a chance to play with my Cool Heat shadows from Mac. Big suprise but, I fell in love with Gulf Stream. Something was oh so familiar about this gorgeous green. That's because it's an exact dupe of the covergirls Tropical Fusion green shade. The only true difference is mac's version is a tad frostier. Check out the swatches below.
Your not only getting Gulf Stream but, Submarine too. Two MAC eye shadows at $36.00 + Tropical Fusion Quad $4.99 = $31.00 savings. The blue isn't a 100 percent dupe like Gulf Stream but, it's pretty darn close. Submarine is a tad on the navy side and frostier.
Fab and Flashy is a tangerine shade compared to covergirls orange/coral. Covergirls version is really pretty but no pigmentation and staying power along with the yellow shade. The yellow texture was just plain awful. A matte that is chalky and has no pigmentation at all. Eyepopping is a gorgeous bumble bee colored shade that looks gorgeous with greens. It's classified more as an lime green, but appears more yellow on my NC30. Although eyepopping is a limited edition it's still available on ebay and resonably priced too. Just make sure it's a trusted MAC seller.
