I had to interrupt the bevy of E.L.F. haul reviews for a quick update. While in MAC the other day, drooling over the Semi-Precious collection, I nearly bought Blue Sheen. Well, it’s a good thing I didn’t because I am now $15 and 7 colors richer. Wet n’ Wild’s Blue Had Me at Hello palette ($5 at drugstores) has a nearly exact dupe for it along with 7 other awesome shades!

And, yes, this was taken in the mall mere minutes after I swatched it. The things I do for you, lovely readers.
This is the dupe:
Brothers from another mother? I think so.
I don’t know if they are supposed to be applied wet, as MAC’s are, but I do it anyway and the results don’t bother me one bit.
Later this week (or next), I will have a swatchfest and review of this palette as well as a look. But, for now, I just wanted to let you know before you spent too long moping about the price or worse, if you were going to buy it!
