Heeramandi: An Over Thought Out Review

Makeup Dupes | PIXI Endless Silky Eye Pen | MAC Frost Eye Shadow | Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat | MAC Matte Lipstick

While buying the OG products has its charm, it is not always pocket-friendly. Dupes however is a great way to get the OG look without burning a hole in your pocket. Here are some dupes for high-end luxury makeup products which can be added to your vanity at a fraction of the cost. 

PIXI Endless Silky Eye Pen (Black Caviar)
Dupe - Forever52 Waterproof Smoothening Eye Pencil (Pitch)

Thus supposedly affordable brand is expensive in India, thanks to all the import and custom taxes. That’s the reason why I have added it to this list. This pencil liner is perfect for the current makeup trends of Latte / Americano / Cappuccino makeup. This highly pigmented, creamy PIXI eye pen is not just brown, but a brown with a bit of Red and Wine mixed in, which is what makes it a unique colour to look out for. 

The dupe from Forever52 is also creamy and super easy to use. Both these pencils are easy to blend and are smudge-proof. 

Unfortunately, both the PIXI and Forever 52 are not currently available on Nykaa and Amazon. However, I am still linking the products below, so in future, if they are available you can buy them.

MAC Frost Eye Shadow (Amber Lights)
Dupe - Nykaa Cosmetics Quad (Night Out)

This creamy satin-ish MAC bronzy golden colour is a very good eye shadow. It gives you that soft glistening look which almost makes your makeup look effortless and soft-romantic. The dupe is from Nykaa and it’s not a single like the MAC, but a quad. So you are technically not just getting the MAC shade, but three others as well at a fraction of the cost. In fact, the formulation in the Nykaa one is a tad bit more creamier than the MAC one, so if you like creamy formulations, this is the one to be.

Dupe - PAC Colorlock Lip Liner (Brown To Earth)

The Charlotte Tilbury lip liner is again a little Browny Red and would go well with the eye pencils that I mentioned above (more so if you are going for that browny makeup). Now, the dupe for this is from PAC, and according to me, these two are exact same colour.

MAC Matte Lipstick (Whirl)
Dupe - Nykaa Matte Luxe Lipstick (Artisanal Coffee)

This MAC lipstick is a beautiful brown shade, but the price of a MAC lipstick is hefty as we all know. So here’s a Nykaa dupe yet again, once this lipstick oxidises a bit so give it a few minutes for the shade to match MAC’s.
