Save Your $: Eyeshadow Palette Dupes

I don't know about you, but I'm trying to ball on a budget. Eyeshadow palettes are super pretty but some of them are too expensive for my liking. This is where dupes come in. These are dupes that I've come across in my recent reddit/youtube searches. 

For all of these dupes I suggest searching youtube for review videos!

First up we have a dupe for the Tarte - Tartlette Toasted palette. The colors are super pretty but I watched so many negative reviews of the Tartelette palette on youtube that I lost interest. The ColourPop Double Entendre is much cheaper and the reviews are much better than the Tartlette! If I didn't have a bunch of warm palettes already I would order Double Entendre in a heartbeat (Mainly because its on sale right now for $12.80)!

The next 8 dupes were created to be direct dupes. Like, these shades were created to be as close as possible to the original palette. If we're talking in "Steal Like an Artist" terms I guess you could file these under the bad theft category. It's a slight moral dilemma for me, but in the words of the musically inclined but not so great human R.Kelly, "My mind is tellin me no, but my bank account, my bank account is telling me its okay fam..."

I love the Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism, Subculture, and Modern Renaissance palettes (I bought the prism with a gift card at Sephora and subculture and modern renaissance with coupons at ulta) but they're expensive if you don't have a gift card or coupons, so if you don't want to spend the $42 on them these dupes are a great option for you!

I own the Aphrodite, Athena, Solstice, and Supernova palettes and I love them! I don't know all of the characteristics/lingo that make an eyeshadow great but they stay on may eyes and blend well and thats all that really matters to me. All of these can be bought from shophush.com. They do this weird thing where their website and app have different inventory, so I suggest using their app to place any orders you want to make. Also, all orders through their app have free shipping so thats a plus! I placed my last order on a Sunday, it shipped on Tuesday, and I had the palettes in hand on Friday. I've had a great experience with the company so far!

One thing to note, since some of these palettes are pretty popular they do sell out, but Hush announces on their Instagram when they plan to restock and on which platform they will be restocking (website or app).
