In my recent tutorial Eva longoria inspired make-up I used M.A.C melon pigment on the lid but found a similar product 1/5th of the price. I wouldn't call it a DUPE as it's not an exact match however it is very close and equally as pretty.
The pigment in question is by Collection 2000 called Paradise.
You can most definitely see the similarity however the differences I can see are that the Paradise has more of a gold tone and the Melon has orange tones. If I was to choose a favourite out of the two it would be the Collection 2000 eyeshadow as it is finely milled in comparison to the M.A.C one and it applies smooth and evenly.
£2.99 (varies, some are priced 99p on Amazon)
The quality and quantity are incredible on the Collection 2000 pigment making it a very reasonable and highly recommendable product.
To foil apply a metallic eyeshadow on a flat shader brush and spray with a light mist of water like Fix +. It crease a smooth foil like finish that looks stunning on the lid.
You can purchase the pigments at Boots and Superdrug but I have found it difficult to find them selling it on line.
Which do you think looks the best?
