MUFE Flash Palette DUPE

Happy belated Halloween ya'll!

So this Halloween I had a dilemma. I wanted to do some really good quality makeup but still couldn't bring myself to splurge on the Makeup Forever Flash Palette. $99 for some makeup I would only use once a year?! I just couldn't. Makeup Forever is also not a cruelty free brand.

I felt stuck. I've tried using other Halloween throw away palettes in the past but I knew if I invested, the makeup would turn out 100x better.

And then I found the Anastasia of Beverly Hills Lip Palette. I examined it, asked a Sephora rep about how comparable the two palettes are and I tested it. Besides the fact that it doesn't include the silver & gold, I didn't see a difference between the two for what I needed to use it for.

$48 online & at Sephora
Anastasia Lip Palette used for entire face
I forgot to take a picture before I used it (I was just so excited), but this gives you a good indicator on how little I used for the look seen here.

I know what you're thinking... the pans are bigger in the MUFE Flash Palette & there are more color options such as green and peach to choose from. But thats the glory of mixing primary colors! You can achieve those same colors by mixing what is in this palette. I also would never find myself using even half of the MUFE palette so the size of the lip pans are fine with me.

I felt the consistency was good to play around with. The formula didn't crease on my face and it stayed really well. Very, very buildable. The palette also includes a spatula, brush & mixing plate.

Tell me what you think! What did you dress up for this year on Halloween?
