MAC Amber Lights Dupe!

I try not to blog more than once a day, but this dupe is too awesome to not share right away! I only have a few MAC eyeshadows because they are pricey, and I think there are cheaper alternatives that are just as pigmented, smooth, etc.  Anyways, if you have been wanting to get your hands on MAC's Amber Lights..here is a dupe that is pretty darn close. 

Go out to your drugstore and purchase Maybelline's Trio in Bronze Glitz.  The top shade resembles it's high-end counterpart, and I don't think you'll be disappointed.  The whole quad in itself is very pigmented and smooth, but most importantly, the texture of that top shade feels just as creamy and butter-smooth as Amber Lights. 






From the swatch, you can tell that Amber Lights is slightly more golden, but I promise the difference is so slight that they look almost identical on the eyelids. Yay for cheap alternatives! :D

You could use this color in the center of the lid them smoke it out using a darker shade like a plum, black, or dark brown!
