Dupe: Mac's Entremauve Pigment

Hi everyone, I wanted to start a on-going post topic on dupes. There are many brands out there and there's especially one brand ahemMACahem that always comes out with these great collections on a monthly basis and honestly no one can keep up with buying these wonderful products. Some of these wonderful products closely resemble another product from a previous collection or from the regular line. So this will be a ongoing topic that will surface my blog to help myself and individuals in better product purchases. If you would like to contribute please do!



So I ordered some mac pigment samples from thebodyneeds.com and Entremauve was one of them. It's a dark purple with some blue and pink reflects. I tried it out and I absolutely loved the results. Since I only ordered a sample I was a bit scared to use it on a regular basis because I didn't want to run out especially since hunting it down is a bit difficult since it's one of those long ago limited edition products. So I was browsing through mac pigment swatches on Specktra and user did a comparison on Entremauve vs. Grape and it's pretty similar. The first photo (above) doesn't really show a strong similarity but I believe its the lighting because the Grape pigment is closer to the light source which makes it appear lighter.

^^ As you can see Grape (regular line) is pretty similar to Entremauve but with better pigmentation.

Hope this helps:)

Pop Champagne: Both pigments are from Mac but Entremauve is LE and Grape is in their regular line.
