The Accidental Dupe

Since I’m on this kick to shop my stash, I thought I’d break out MAC’s Bough Grey (from the Liberty Of London collection) and just blend it out with a little bit of Cloud Nine (Kjaer Weis). What I realized is that it looks exactly like Rock & Republic’s Emerge.

Well… almost like it. Emerge is more pigmented and blends out a bit more easily. Bough Grey needs to be packed, but once it’s on, it wears all day. I wore it today with no primer, and it wore beautifully.

*That roughness near my jawline is the result of my currently healing skin. It’s still VERY dry in some areas and tends to ash out with even the lightest dusting of powder. On the up side, it didn’t look like that in natural light. The flash just accentuated the roughness. I’m healing faster than I thought I would. I should be ship shape by week’s end!*
