Nyx Opal, Snow Candy, Eucalyptus

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.

Nyx Red Pink, Purple and Deep Purple

How could you not like Red Pink? Super bright! Purple and Deep Purple both need a little extra TLC to get them to opacity.

Nyx Pure Skin, Pure Gold and Yellow gold Pearl Swatch

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.

Nyx Charcoal Brown, Smoked Mountain, Very Pink Pearl

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.

Nyx Sunny Day, Extreme Apricot, Hot Orange

I always think Sunny Day is not aptly named, because it’s pink. Extreme Apricot is fierce. Hot Orange has fun gold glitter.

Nyx Atlantic, Kiss in Casablanca, Turquoise Pearl, Orange Zest Pearl

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.

  1. Hi, I would love to see side by side comparisons of the NYX shades and the MAC shades so we can see how close in resemblance they are.

  2. Hey Melody! I would have to get swatches from another blogger since MAC isn’t cruelty free – I don’t want to go out and buy them. You got any you want to share? πŸ™‚

  3. Hi Melody,
    I own MAC Vellum & Nyx Opal, so I can swatch those side by side for you.
    I think I have MAC Swish, Aquadisiac, Viz a Violet, Lucky Green, Stars n’ Rockets and Parfait Amour. I don’t own the corresponding Nyx shades, but I will see if I can get my hands on them!

  4. NYX is NOT cruelty free! They are selling to China.

  5. Carreen – they just won a PETA award for promising NOT to sell in China. Please see my recent post.

  6. Is there a dupe for Mac beet lip liner and Lancome Linen?
