When the Makeup Geek x Manny palette came out a couple months ago I, like many others, fell in love with the shade Mars – a deep cherry red with a matte finish… I was not lucky enough to get my hands on it, so I instantly started looking for dupes. The easiest one to get was Make Up For Ever’s M846 Morello Cherry ($25.00 CAD | 2g / 0.07oz).
Effortlessly create endless eye looks that range from beautifully natural to highly artistic with this unique eyeshadow palette. With its breakthrough, gel-powder formula blended with ultrafine pigments, Artist Shadow leaves a smooth, even result that gives lids super-saturated, lasting color. An easily-blendable formula that features diamond, iridescent, matte, metallic, and satin finishes, it is an accessible shadow for the professional makeup artist and the everyday woman.
I have never spent $25.00 on an individual shadow before, but I am so extremely happy that I allowed myself to splurge on this. It is unlike anything else I own. It swatches red but once I start blending it on my lids it transforms into this amazing raspberry colour… and to say it’s insanely pigmented would be an understatement. As I don’t have the Manny palette I can’t confirm that it is a dupe, the swatches look similar but I think it’s a bit more pink than Mars once it’s blended.
