Drugstore MAC Sculpt & Shape dupe!

While I was shopping at Target the other day I came across the clearance rack and saw this little bronzing duo by L’Oreal. It is called the Glam Bronze Bronzing Duo. The regular price for this was I believe $9.99 and it was marked down to $6.98. I really don’t take lots of chances with drugstore makeup.. but really caught my attention was that it looks EXACTLY like the MAC Shape & Sculpt Duo in Lightsweep. It was actually, the only shade of the shape & sculpt collection that I never got a chance to purchase. I was a little skeptical, but when I popped open the compact, I could see that the powder is very finely milled and is silky to the touch. I went ahead and purchased it in “Matte Bronze“. There was only two sitting on the rack.. so I don’t know what the other shades look like.

and it comes with a mirror and brush! I would prefer to use my angled blush brush or my ELF blush brush to contour and highlight. This brush would be useful if you’d like to mix the colors and apply it as a bronzer.

I love the texture of this. And it’s pretty pigmented. I’m impressed. And WHOOPS! I accidentally labeled this picture “maybelline” but its L’Oreal. I’ll fix it tomorrow..

Here is a picture of MAC Shape & Sculpt in the shade “Lightsweep” courtesy of user “thejuicy” on MUA.

Here’s a swatch off of Temptalia.

I think they look EXACTLY the same. Except that MAC’s highlight has the tiniest bit of shimmer.

If this has been something you’ve always wanted to try, definately check out this dupe! 🙂

ULTA has buy 1, get 1 for 50% off on several brands. And if you’ve got a $3.50 off coupon from the flier, thats a pretty sweet deal.

I got a couple NYX things. This ended up being like $8?

NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Smokey Look
NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Perfect
NYX Lip Liner Pencil in Natural
NYX Eye Brow Pencil in Dark Brown

So far, I really like everything. I never tried their Mega glosses before, and I had no idea they have the scent of cherry cough syrup.. yuck. But it’s not a big deal. I wore Smokey look today and it really brightened my face and gave me some color. It’s like a pretty nude pink coral. Natural really reminds me of one of my MAC lip pencils.. I can’t put my foot on it.. maybe Hover or Subculture?

I also received all of my swap items I’ve been waiting on. I’ll have pictures to come!

  1. Great post! And I love the site – you have a beautiful, exotic look).

    I have been big on drugstore brands for a while now. Some of the cheaper products are actually pretty good. (I LOVE NYX!) I will check this Loreal bronzer out.

    I think L'oreal do the best everyday bronzers,I have the regular GlamBronze SPF 10 and it's great so I will have to check this one out too!Also,L'oreal are planning to release a compact with a pink blush on one side and a bronzer on the other-hopefully it will be a dupe for Benefit Perfect 10!x
