MAC Vellum was a long time favorite of mine. Once I hit pan on it, I went looking for dupes. NYX Opal is very close. While I never had the pleasure of owning MAC Smoke and Diamonds, I do find Eucalyptus to be lovely, especially if you’re a taupe fiend. I love Snow Candy.
How could you not like Red Pink? Super bright! Purple and Deep Purple both need a little extra TLC to get them to opacity.
Pure Skin is interesting because it’s a yellow-toned creamy matte with subtle gold shimmer. Pure Gold is a gorgeous bronzey gold. Yellow Gold is bright but fun.
Charcoal Brown is a great warm brown-grey crease color. Smoked Mountain is sort of like a blackened olive. Lots of fun. Very Pink Pearl is nice. All of the pearls seem to have good color payoff.
I always think Sunny Day is not aptly named, because it’s pink. Extreme Apricot is fierce. Hot Orange has fun gold glitter.
I can see why Atlantic Blue and Kiss in Casablanca are favorites. I like Turquoise Pearl. Orange Zest Pearl is a fun way to try out orange because it leans a bit peach and it’s not a loud bright shade.
