Ahhhhh.... MAC Shimmermoss! My go to pop of teal eye shadow choice! Did ya know that MAC eye shadows are $15.00 for 0.05 oz? It`s no wonder that so many of us are opting for cheaper drugstore alternatives to our high end tastes.
L`Oreal HiP Studio Secrets Professional Bright Eye Shadow Duo in Showy features a frosty blue green/teal and a matte blue. The frosty teal color reminded me so much of MAC Shimmermoss, so I decided to pick it up. I always hate traveling with my expensive makeup because they can get so trashed in my luggage/carry on. I thought for $7.99 for 0.08 oz (0.04 oz for each shadow), what did I have to lose?
HiP stands for "high intensity pigments". L`Oreal HiP duos are known for it`s amazing pigmentation and longevity. Actually, as I write this post, this duo is rated at a 4.2 on MakeUpAlley right now. I`ve worn this all day in 80+ degree summer heat (don`t ya just love pops of color in summer) and it`s held up great over my UDPP. As far as quality, this duo is pigmented, creamy, and easy to blend.
Now, are these dupes? I`d say they`re about 90% dupes, but not 100%. I`ve actually done some research and saw that the L`Oreal HiP Studio Secrets Professional Bright Eye Shadow Duo in Showy is actually much closer to MAC Parrot (or at least what I can tell from pictures) but I don`t have Parrot, and honestly I think it`s pretty darn close to MAC Shimmermoss.
