Cruelty Free Dupes for MAC Colors

Makeup Geek swatches

By Phyrra, Staff Writer

There are many cult classic colors out there from MAC. Because MAC is no longer cruelty-free, we’ve found some great cruelty-free alternatives for you from Makeup Geek and Silk Naturals, so you can wear your favorite shades in cruelty-free formulas. This list contains mostly eyeshadows, but some blushes and lipsticks as well. Thanks to Sheila from Painted-Ladies for the Makeup Geek dupes.

For those of you who don’t know, dupes are colors that are either exact matches or nearly identical to one another.

These cruelty-free alternatives are less than half the price of MAC eyeshadows without sacrificing quality or pigmentation. In many cases, these alternatives have better pigmentation and blendability.

Makeup Geek eyeshadows are $5.99 to $7.99.
Silk Naturals eyeshadows are $4.00, blushes are $6.50, and lip products start at $4.50.
