Cruelty Free MAC Eyeshadow Dupes

Cruelty Free MAC Eyeshadow Dupes

I frequently get asked for cruelty free MAC eyeshadow dupes, so I decided to go through the MAC eyeshadows still in my collection and match them up with some currently cruelty free eyeshadows. Some of these are just similar, in my opinion, more than dupes. All of my MAC was purchased when MAC was cruelty free. MAC is not currently cruelty free. Swatched on my N0 skintone. This post contains a mix of press samples and products purchased by me.

$6 each

All Makeup Geek is cruelty free. Most are vegan. See the list of non-vegan shades here. All shades swatched on Too Faced Shadow Insurance primer.

MAC Blanc Type dupe

Makeup Geek Vanilla Bean – MAC Blanc Type
Blanc Type is cooler-toned and more matte than Vanilla Bean. Vanilla Bean pulls warm on me.

MAC Shroom Dupe
Makeup Geek Shimma Shimma – MAC All That Glitters
Shimma Shimma is supposed to be a MAC Shroom clone. Shimma Shimma has the same finish as All That Glitters. They’re both in the peach family to me.

Makeup Geek Beaches & Cream (not vegan) – MAC Orb
Beaches is deeper and more peach beige, Orb is a lighter pinked-peach-beige.

Peach Smoothie is supposed to be a dupe for MAC Samoa Silk. Purely Naked is supposed to be a dupe for MAC Arena.

These look identical to me but MUG has MUCH better pigmentation.

Makeup Geek Bedrock – MAC Copperplate
These look identical to me. Copperplate was a favorite of mine and I really love Bedrock.

Makeup Geek Pixie Dust – MAC Sweet & Punchy
These look identical to me. MUG has better pigmentation. I love this bright color!
