Finger Swatches of my Melt Cosmetics Gemini Palette Dupe
Will I Try to Dupe Another Palette?
I will definitely attempt to dupe another eyeshadow palette. First, the process of duping was fun. Second, why not save money if I can?!
I love that pre-made palettes can serve major creative inspiration and usher in color trends in the market. However, we can usually recreate pre-made palettes with shadows we already own.
Due to the unique undertones in this palette, I bought many of these single shadows. Although there are nuances to each shade in the Melt Cosmetics’ Gemini Palette, colors often look less differentiated on the eye than they do when swatched.
I could have saved more money if I tried to find Melt Cosmetics Gemini Palette dupes in my current collection. However, I don’t mind spending money to support indie brands. Plus, I like having the single shadows organized similarly to the actual layout of the real Gemini Palette.
