Let's see if we can save some money in the beauty department? Since y'all loved last week's dupe buster I am doing it again, thanks to a comment's suggestion. Today I'm testing for a Stila "Kitten" dupe--the most common one suggested is L'Oreal "Iced Latte." Stila is $18 (Sephora) and L'Oreal is around $7.99 (+ or - at any drugstore). "Kitten" is my favorite shadow of all time. This shimmery pink nude looks amazing on everyone, but what if there is something for half the price? Let's see:
I happen to own "Kitten" in a palette (top pic, In the Light palette) and in the small pot (pictured above from a gift set). As you can see in the side-by-side comparisons, they are similar.
Then, I did a swatch test on my arm (hand swatch in video). "Kitten" is a pinky champagne whereas "Iced Latte" is more of a white gold. Again, this is VERY obvious in the video.
- A guy: "Yeah."
- 6 yr old: "Why are you making me look at your eyes? You look crazy."
There you have it.
And here they are on my light-medium skin tone with full makeup (and some taupe shadow in the crease). In this instance they look identical. While I prefer Stila, you can't go wrong with L'Oreal.
In the video below, I go into more detail:

What dupes would you like to see busted next?
- My Thursday began horribly: one of my good friends passed away suddenly. I had to step away from everything for a couple of days, so if you noticed my absence here (and everywhere) that is why. Thank you for your prayers and sweet words. She was our sunshine and she is so missed. I'm still in shock and denial.
