A Look with Tamanna Palette + MAC Dupes!

tamannaHappy Thanksgiving Week!

Lately I have become a little obsessive over Anastasia’s Tamanna palette and I simply cannot get enough of these HAWT warm toned shades. Festively speaking, I also go a little nuts around this time with the cranberry colors … so I couldn’t help it. *insert big grin here*

While I love this palette to death, the colors in here are pretty dupeable unfortunately. So, for those of us who already have the MAC eyeshadows, you can also use the below substitutions and get a VERY similar, if not identical look. At any rate, if you don’t already own the below MAC shades, this is a REALLY great palette to own – and at only $29, you can’t beat the price (compared to spending $40 for the below shades collectively)! And if you need full instruction, I’ve included the video tutorial for you below as well. 🙂

  • Sangria = MAC Cranberry
  • Chocolate = MAC Handwritten
  • Bengal = MAC Soft Brown (or MUG’s Creme Brulee)
  • Noir = MAC Typographic

  1. Oh my! I have wanted this palette for the light blue color but now I see that I really want the cranberry color as well! What’s a girl to do? Here’s to another palette that I want!

  2. Hey Z! Would you say that quality wise these are not as good, just as good, or better than their MAC comparisons? And do you have dupes and/or swatches of the other colors? I am cool toned but thanks to my hazel eyes I think this palette may be wearable for me. However if Sangria is too close to UD Sonic (which I really like) from Vice 3, unless the other colors are unique enough I may not bother. If you get a moment could you please swatch the three side by side: Sangria, Cranberry, Sonic?

    1. Hey K!
      I would absolutely (without a doubt!) say the Tamanna eyeshadows are equally comparable to their MAC counterparts in quality. It’s hard to tell them apart! I’ve made a note to do those swatches for you and will email them to you tomorrow (11/26) 😉

  3. I wanted to tell you that I tried Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer and I really, really like it. They actually have a shade that is light enough. I have it in Chantilly.
