Dupe for MAC Cornflower pigment

So...I'm trying to stay away from the MAC store because I'm patiently (haha...let's be honest, impatiently) awaiting the Surf Baby collection....which I want most of!  Well, I guess I should say that I want most of it right now...because I haven't seen the swatches yet, so I could very well change my mind!  :)  I wanted to make a stop at Ulta....and only because my daughter wanted to go to look at the temporary hair dye.  She recently asked for purple streaks in her hair and we did it (it looked so cute) but she wanted to see what other colors they what a great excuse to go into Ulta!  =D  Here's what I picked up!
Now, these were all totally impulse  I use NYX pencils as a base over TFSI....I have many of them, even though I only use a select few it seems haha.  I picked up Rocky Mountain Green and Electric Blue.  I also got some NYX Ultra Mania Pearls.  I have one, in Turquoise and I do like it (although the packaging of these are a pain in the rear).  I see so many looks by Starryskies214 with the Ultra Mania Pearl in Jade and I love I really wanted to try this out!!  I also got Space...although I really wanted the purple one, but they were  So...when I got home...I opened these and swatched them.  Space looked familiar to me....this is a pretty close dupe for MAC Cornflower pigment!  Here are the swatches!

 It isn't as pigmented, but pretty darn close...and about $18 cheaper!  Cornflower is on the top and Space is on the bottom.  I hardly use my Cornflower pigment...I think I've used it 2 or 3 I would be totally fine with only having Space!!  ;)   I had to work today and my makeup looked great when I left but I didn't have time to take pictures (I always seem to be running late lol) however, when I got home...not so much!  So I promise to post a look tomorrow!! 


  1. Very pretty! I heard lot of great things about those! I have a coupon from ulta but I dont even know where it is :P

  2. Oh yay! How do you like Jade? I love Space over a black base! Can't wait to see what you come up with using them!

  3. I haven't used Jade yet...I will probably use it tomorrow though, it is super pretty! I think just about everything looks best under a black base! =D I would love to see a look from you using the Space!
