Have you met Christine’s (Temptalia) new and improved Makeup Dupe List?

You know that time in your makeup life when you find the perfect shade of golden peach blush only to go home and realize you have several hundred of the same color? I always wonder if it is a blessing or a bummer when this happens. Because I admit I have some sort of design to own every single shade of golden peach blush out there no MATTER HOW similar they are to each other! Where as other times I’m like, “Oh man, bummer, this is so the same color!”

Or how about those times you fall in love with a product but it’s been discontinued! And silly you, you didn’t purchase a back up! Now you need to head out there and see if you can find the same shade somehow, someway, it’ll become a life goal to re-discovery that long gone shade…

You don’t have to dedicate your life to the search though! Just head over to she’s done all the work for you! her new makeup dust list allows you to search for your dupe easily! So if you’re looking to see if that NARS Blush shade you love and know has some sort of dupe out there that you must try out from another brand here’s your chance to look it up and compare it to any number of similar colors! Or if your favorite Clinique Eyeshadow has been axed, now you can search out an exact dupe for it, less mourning time for you!


  • Just start typing the product name and Temptalia’s database will display a drop down menu to choose from.
  • Compare a swatch of your favorite shade side by side to other similar shades.
  • Quickly find out if the shade you’re searching is LE, permanent, or no longer available.
  • Save your product finds for later to Temptalia’s wish or vanity list.

It’s the easiest way to find a beloved shade’s dupe!

I kinda have to stay away from it, this morning I was searching for NARS Orgasm dupes and came across several hundred shades from brands like Clinique, Smashbox, and Wet n Wild…now I want to haul them. How diseased is that?
