NARS Eurydice dupe/ Wet n Wild Lust palette




Top: Nars Eurydice, Bottom: Wet N Wild Lust palette



I really love NARS cosmetics, so I was super excited to discover a perfect dupe for Eurydice.

I had bought three Wet n wild palettes a while back, Lust, Vanity and Greed.
I paid $3.99 a piece for these at Target (on sale).

To my surprise these are actually very nice colors, and the color payoff is excellent. I guess I used to think Wet n Wild was cheap quality in general because of the low cost. Boy they have really stepped up their game.

Fast forward to now, I was looking through my NARS makeup stash, doing swatches, etc. and one duo stood out in particular. I knew I had colors that resembled them.

Light bulb flash! My Wet n Wild Lust palette.

These are the closest dupes I have found, and actually I like and prefer the Lust palette for $3.99 over the Nars Eurydice which I paid $32.00 for.
Not just because the price is way better, but the colors in general are better in my opinion.

The Nars one looks prettier in the palette, but once applied to the eyes, it doesn't look as pretty.
So I tested one eye with Nars and one with Wet n Wild. I wore it all day long. I asked several people which side looked better and most said they couldn't tell the difference.

When I pressed them to please choose a side, no one could tell it was two different products. Additionally, 9 out of 10 said the W n W looked better.

I hope this will help you out if you're in the market for a more economic version.

Let me know your thoughts??

  1. Wow! To say I'm shocked is the understatement of the year. I have to admit, I wasn't too keen on WnW shadows...some of their other products, but not the shadows. I Just didn't think the color payoff was enough for me... this was a while ago. I know they've revamped their line so I was wondering... Now I see! I'll purchase some! Thanx!!! ;) xx
