So as some of you know my obsession with Make-up.. and well i'm a bit on a budget after my last shopping spree[s]..

it's so hard because i barely just got back into make-up/beauty.. and i just love everything.. i've been searching everywhere on the web.. and found that since i've tried NYX Cosmetics, they are the next best thing to MAC (since i can't afford every single thing!).. but i wanted to put this together (took bits and pieces and put them in alphabetical order LOL).. I did NOT make this list, I just searched forums, google, other blogs and found all of these and thought i'd share this all with those that are on a budget like myself but still want to get some amazing cosmetics.. :)

This is the list of Possible MAC/NYX Cosmetic Dupes (read disclaimer at bottom please)... When i'm able to buy anything - i'll swatch them to compare! :) if any of you have swatches you'd like to share, please feel free to comment/e-mail so i can add them... of if you have any to add on here! :) enjoy!

If you'd like to add to this list - or have any possible NYX dupes - i'd love for you to add them to this list! ;) you can post a comment or e-mail me at

DISCLAIMER: I DID NOT put this list together on MY OWN. I do not own most of these colors. like i mentioned above. I got this list from piecing them together from different links/website that had these RECOMMENDATIONS. MOST of them did not have a picture swatch of the items, so I CANNOT guarantee the validity of the dupe. This list is FOR reference only - please use at your own discretion.


  1. WOW! Thanks for the compilation list - I really have to try out NYX, I am sad I missed out on their MEGA $1 sale awhile back. *sighs* :) I would love to see you swatches one day too!

  2. This is awesome! Thanks so much for the list!

  3. You have to really check some of these because some of them are incorrect.

    I have all of these and they look nothing alike:
    MAC Mythology = NYX Jazzy Bronze
    MAC Humid = NYX Mermaid Green

  4. Terrific list. Do you have a fitness routine that matches your beautiful face?

  5. @Irene - it was really out of curiousity because i DO want to try all of the nyx products lol!

    @prettyaspeaches - your so welcome! some of them might/might not be really correct - so just fyi when your looking!

    @Rai - Thanks for the correction. Like I mentioned in my post - I did not actually put/make this list together (as i don't have them) I did however, just piece them together for various websites etc and A LOT of them had NO pictures of the swatches - so when you say i have to really check - it's hard because i don't even have the colors myself. I appreciate the input though. I've updated it to reference that they may be incorrect.

    @Cindy - I do have a fitness routine (but don't know about the beautiful face! LOL - having terrible issues with skin atm!) i'd love to post my routine when i get a chance!

  6. I featured this post in my Friday Favorites!

  7. Oooh, thankyou so much, saves me a lot of searching!
