Maybelline Bad to the Bronze, Nude Compliment, and Sleek & Spice Swatch Comparisons

Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Color Tattoo Eyeshadow

I’m so scared someone is going to throw a rotten tomato at me if I don’t do a swatch comparison of Maybelline Bad to the Bronze, Sleek & Spice, and Nude Compliment. I’m probably doing you a complete disservice but unfortunately I rarely have time to dig through my stash and just list every single dupe there is for another shade I review. If I blogged full time I’d def try to commit to doing something like that but I don’t and I find it a real chore to search through my stash and try and find dupes of everything I post about.

*head desk*

It’s exhausting.

What’s equally exhausting is people asking me is that a dupe for this is this a dupe for that. Oh lawd. It seems like everything has to be a dupe for everything else. Most recently I get a lot of questions about the newest Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Tattoo Eyeshadow shades so I decided I’d end all the discussion about the most popular shades being dupes for a shade already in the permanent collection, Bad to the Bronze, as I feel like it isn’t a dupe of the two newest shades and I’m unsure really why people might feel they are similar. I’m probably missing something here but I suck at shade comparisons anyway so don’t take my word for it but here are some swatches so you can decide for yourself.

Plus if I’m honest at $5.99 each I’m almost positive the world won’t end if maybe sorta kinda Bad to the Bronze resembles something you already own! It’s not a $30 eyeshadow so we should be ok! :)

Boscia The Art Of Multi-Masking Kit Spring 2014

Boscia The Art Of Multi Masking Kit

I like to think I mastered the art of multi-tasking! A full time job, life, and Musings of a Muse, does that meet the requirement for multitasking? Maybe but I sure haven’t really mastered any of it I’m sure.

However, I can at least be in control of my skincare multitasking or should I say multi-masking?
