"MAC Lovers on a Budget"

NYX Glitter Cream Palette 

Okay all you MAC makeup lovers. Here's a list of products by NYX, which according to this anonymous MAC makeup artist, the products on this list are comparable to MAC. I have a few of their products in my kit, which I enjoy using. Now with all the sudden interest in NYX, and the comparison to MAC, I feel it's worth checking out their line. Plus, their price points are a great value for the quality. NYX link below. Have Fun! Beware this a long list, but worth the read.

First off, before I worked for Mac and had a discount, I frequently bought NYX makeup, especially their shadow trios. Their makeup is very pigmented, and absolutely great. I will gladly make a list of comparables for you, but i'm only going to do ones i'm absolutely sure of...

NYX Liquid Foundation = Mac Hyper Real SPF 15 (Mac Pro only): NYX Twin Cake Foundation = Mac Studio Fix Powder or Studio Tech Maxfactor Pancake Foundation = Mac's Full Coverage (Pro only) NYX Concealer Jar = Mac Studio Fix Concealer NYX Concealer Stick = Mac Studio Stick Concealer NYX Concealer Wand = Mac Select Moisture Cover

NYX Bronzer Powder = Mac Bronzers
NYX Loose Face Powder = Mac Select Sheer Loose NYX Highlight & Contour Set = Mac's Sculpt & Shape (Mac Pro only)

NYX Mosaic Powder Blush = Mac Mineralize Blush NYX Rouge Creme Blush = Mac Blushcreme
NYX Powder Blush = Mac Powder Blush**
** I noticed a lot of the
NYX blushes have the same name as Mac's blushes and are very similar in color (dupes).

NYX B07 Flat Top Brush = Mac 187/188 Duo Fibre Brush NYX B01 The Big One Brush = Mac 150 Large Powder Brush NYX B24 Kabuki Brush = Mac 182 Buffer Brush NYX B02 Cheek Brush = Mac 168 Large Contour Brush NYX B03 Blush Brush = Mac 129 Blush Brush NYX B05 Foundation Brush = Mac 189/190 Foundation Brush NYX B06 Powder Brush = Mac 134/150 Powder Brush NYX B08 Fan Brush = Mac 184 Duo Fibre Fan Brush NYX B09 Flat Foundation Brush = Mac 191 Square Foundation Brush NYX B10 Blending Brush = Mac 217/222 Blending Brush NYX B20 Concealer Brush = Mac 194/195 Concealer Brush NYX B15 Smoke Brush = Mac 219 Pencil Brush NYX B13 Shadow Brush = Mac 213 Fluff Brush NYX B14 Shading Brush = Mac 239 Shading Brush NYX B11 Primer Brush = Mac 242 Brush NYX B12 Crease Brush = Mac 224Tapered Blending Brush NYX B16 Contour Brush = Mac 275 Medium Angle Brush NYX B17 Smudge Brush = Mac 228 Mini Shader Brush NYX B22/B18 Angled Brush = Mac 266 Small Angle Brush NYX B19 Liner Brush = Mac 209/210 Liner Brush NYX B21 Definer Brush = Mac 212 Flat Definer Brush

NYX shadow trios are similar to the Mac special edition palettes that come with three or four shades together. I believe NYX makes 45 different trio palettes alone, not to mention their single and loose shadows. Their single shadows have the same finishes as Mac ones, ie. Pearl, Frosty, Matte, etc. Some shadows I can attest for: NYX Black = Mac Carbon NYX Cream Cheese = Mac Nylon NYX Midnight = Mac Black Tied NYX Irises = Mac Electric Eel NYX Morocco = Mac Deep Truth NYX Golden Orange = Mac Orange NYX White = Mac Gesso
NYX Deep Bronze = Mac Bronze NYX Herb = Mac Brun
NYX Yellow = Mac Chrome Yellow NYX Hot Pink = Mac Passionate NYX Platinum SIlver = Mac Electra NYX Seafoam Green = Mac Newly Minted NYX Khaki = Mac Mink & Sable NYX Marrakesh = Mac Greensmoke
NYX Deep Purple = Mac Beauty Marked NYX Lime Juice = Mac Bitter NYX Antique Gold = Mac Woodwinked
NYX Odyssey = Mac Contrast

NYX Tube Lip Gloss = Mac Lipglass
NYX Lip Gloss w/ Mega Shine = Mac Lustre Glass NYX Lip Plumper = Mac PlushGlass
NYX Sheer Gloss = Mac LipGelee
NYX Tinted Lip Spa = Mac Tinted Lip Conditioner NYX Diamond Sparkle Lip Gloss = Mac Dazzle Glass NYX Round Lipstick = Mac Slimshine
