Known Dupes: Romp, UD Smog, UD Snakebite
Tempting is a medium brown shade with a lustre finish, meaning it is chocked full of glitter. However, this one is not as bad as some other Lustre finish eyeshadows I’ve tried; the glitter in Tempting is MUCH more manageable. If you’re trying to decide between this one or Romp, either or will do – they really are exactly the same shade, which is probably why MAC discontinued Romp not too long ago. (I personally prefer Tempting over Romp, don’t ask me why! :)) There are a variety of ways to wear this shade; it functions well in neutral combos and provides a really amazing base color for some of the brighter color in MAC’s collection. I personally prefer it on the lid, as I don’t feel Lustres looks right in the crease, but that is a personal choice. If you’re looking for more combos you could use with Tempting, you may also refer to the Romp Spotlight post here.
