Dupe Alert Dupe Alert!

One of these is a $4 drugstore item and the other is a $22 high end product. Can you guess which is which? They aren't exactly the same but more or less indistinguishable once on the eyes.

On the right we have the NYX Jumbo Pencil in Iced Mocha, on the left the MUFE Aqua Cream in #15.

I did an eye look with each of them on different days and finally today I had an "aha!" moment. To be completely honest, I prefer the NYX. I prefer the pencil delivery system over the pot. I also don't experience creasing when I apply over UDPP. If you tend to have oily eyelids, I'd obviously go for the MUFE but if you don't have creasing issues, save your $18 and get the NYX!

wow, that's awesome! The NYX e/s actually looks a bit smoother/less chunky than the MUFE e/s.

I've had my eye on Iced Mocha for awhile but now I'm going to get it for sure. Thanks for the swatches! :)

Stephanie said...

WHAT! Awesome dupe! I love NYX jumbo pencils so I'm going to need to get this color now! Thanks! :D

Wow, they look the same to me!

Kimberly said...

The NYX does look smoother. Yep, it's the one I'd go with. I love my NYX pencils.

Great dupe! I think have that NYX jumbo pencil too! :)

Jennifer said...

wow you really found a great dupe !thanks for sharing!

really nice, I only have the mufe aqua shadow in cream and the payoff could be better tbh but I didn't find a dupe for that one yet!

Stephanie said...

Great dupe! I should use my neglected NYX pencils. I don't have this color yet though!

@Mimsy: That's what my husband said too! And another surprise, the NYX still has remnants on my hand the morning after (post multiple handwashings) while the MUFE is almost nearly gone.

@Stephanie: It's an awesome color, especially if you are a lover of taupes! =)

@Cosmetics Aficionado: Pretty much!

@Kimberly: This is my first and only but I might pick up a few more now. =)

@Miss ♥ Nikka: Cool! =)

@Jennifer: You're very welcome! It's a lot harder to find dupes than I thought. I know I've been trying to find drugstore dupes for a lot of products and many simply fall short.

@splattergirl: I'll get right on that!

@Stephanie: If you like neutrals, this pencil is a must have and yes, you should use them more!
