Possible Dupe for MAC "All That Glitters"?

Heres another possible MAC dupe!

As you might have seen, i recently got my hands on some gorgeous glamour doll eyes shadows to review :) (click here for full review and swatches!) 

Well, one of the shadows i picked was "He Loves Me Not" and when swatching it, i found it to be very very similar to MAC's all that glitters! Lets find out for sure :)

Overall, i definitely think that GDE's "He Loves Me Not" is a total dupe for MAC's "All That Glitters"

Both are buttery soft, very pigmented and blend amazingly well. The main difference between the two is that He Loves Me Not is a finely milled eyeshadow and is in powder form, whereas All That Glitters is in pan form. PLUS, there is of course, a price difference: GDE goes for $6 for 2-2.5g whereas MAC goes for $17 for 1.5g. (However, Glamour Doll Eyes is only available online so there may also be a shipping cost depending on where you live)

Overall, i love both shades! If you are tight on cash and dont mind using powder shadows, i would totally recommend Glamour Doll Eyes! However, if you're always on the go, in a hurry or just like the pan form better, the MAC one will be more travel friendly.

Since i have both....
For daily everyday basis, I will probably stick to using All That Glitters because its more convient and mess-free. However, for days/nights out, i think i'd switch to using He Loves Me Not because i find it more buildable since you can easily pack on as much color as you want :)

What do you think? Let me know! :D
