Not Quite Dupes – UD Primer vs. NYX Jumbo Shadow Pencil

Okay, so I discovered a Not Quite Dupe this week I thought I would share.

I love my Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin–it has a goldish, rosey finish to it that is a fabulous underlay for many looks. I also happen to own the UD eyeshadow Sin, which I use all the time, sometimes even as a face contouring highlighter. So what a treat to discover that my NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Yogurt is nearly identical in shade. So much so that I almost could not tell them apart.

Now, I call this a NQD for two reasons. One, the NYX Yogurt is definitely roseier/pinkier than Sin. But also because I find that the NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencils do crease on their own if not set with a shadow on top. But since I always lay eyeshadow on top of my UD Primer as well, it’s kind of the same thing, isn’t it? Sort of? Not quite. Hence the NQD designation.  But when you compare the UD Primer Potion in Sin at $20 vs. the Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Yogurt at $4.99 (and often Buy 1, Get 1 50% Off at Ulta), you can decide for yourself if it’s close enough…
