Dupe Alert: MAC Well Dressed and ELF Shy

Hi my lovelies, how is ur day going? I finally decided to do some swatching of some blushes that I have mainly to check whether is any similar to the NARS sex appeal which I'm planning to get. 

After some swatching, I realised that the NARS sex appeal looks abit like peachy keen from ELF. 
I'm still contemplating whether to get it or not.

Noticed how similar ELF's Shy and MAC's Well Dressed is to each other at first glance in their respective packaging? when I really swatched it and look really closely, there is a slight difference in color and texture. ELF has a more chalky finish and less pigmented while MAC is more pigmented. But still one retails at $18.50 and the other one at $1.00!!

I think I won't return it after all just cos the ELF one is so small and before I know it I'll already be done with it. Will just keep Well Dressed as a backup since now I'm really too lazy to go out to the mall and going into the MAC store will only make me wanna buy more things.

Also, I just wanna give a shout out to this lovely beauty blogger Jess from Jessying. She's such a sweet person and if you haven't check out her blog, u really should..she's got so many interesting post about make up and skincare which I love reading! =)

Have a great Tuesday!



  1. babe, u are just being too kind! U are one lovely soul..

    indeed the mac well dressed and ELF shy both looks almost similar .. but big differences in price right! And both got such a weird name :P

    I like ELF Duo!

  2. Jess- Np babe! U've been such a sweet person...Yea..the price is such huge difference, one is RM75 and the other one is like RM4...haha...but well looking at the better texture and pack's still worth i guess...i'm gonna catogorized that as my guilty splurges. =P


  3. ELF cosmetics tend to be chalky. But considering the price it's understandable. Good dupe though. I guess if you're wearing either people cant tell the difference. :)

  4. i actually ordered elf shy yesterday from the elf website :D
    i can't wait for my package ^-^

  5. Thanks so much for the great swatches. Love your profile pic btw!

  6. Yup they look almost the same. Too bad I don't have access to Elf here


  7. gosh, I never expect ELF have something similar color as MAC

    good job =D!

  8. Yen- It's very little difference when u apply it on the face...haha...but i'll jus keep the mac one as a back up for now

    Nikka- I love ELF too...they are soo cheap! :)
