Mac Whisper of Gilt Dupe

I remember the time how I screamed at a Mac counter when I finally found very famous MAC Whisper of Guilt Extra dimension highlighter from MAC Glamour Daze collection and found out that it was the last one!  I did not think that this higlighter was going to be that famous.

Initailly, I bought it because I wanted to use it as an eyeshadow when I despearately was looking for MAC Blonde's gold pigment, which turned out to be permanent.. And no.. this is not the dupe I am going to write about. However this is also a very close dupe.

Also when I was in Italy I swatched an Kiko Water eyeshadow in 208 - Light Gold, which also was a dead on dupe for MAC Whisper of Guilt. But I did not pick that because I already found a cheaper alternative.

The cheaper and most accessible dupe for Mac Whisper  of guilt is : Catrice - we are the champagnes eyeshadow.

Left: Catrice - we are the champagnes. Right: Mac Whisper of Guilt

                           Left:Mac Whisper of Guilt. Right: Catrice - we are the champagnes

The only difference I noticed between these two is that MAC one is more finely mild and feels a little bit smoother. Pigmentation wise, Catrice - we are the champagnes eyeshadow is more pigmented, in my opinion.

So, if you think that you missed on MAC Whisper of Guilt and trying to buy in on ebay for ridicilous high amount of money, just give Catrice - We are the champagnes eyeshadow a try! 

MAC Whisper of Guilt : 27,50 for  9 grams of product. Sold out LE
Kiko Water eyeshadow in 208 - Light Gold - 8,90 for 3 grams of product at kikocosmetics.eu
Catrice - we are the champagnes:  € 3,99 for 3grams of product at Kruidvat & Trekpleister

Untill next time,
