Two Makeup Geek Eyeshadows that are Dupes…for Each Other?

Makeup Geek Last Dance and Homecoming

One of these things is not a lot like the other

The other day I posted about my favourite Makeup Geek eyeshadows. I’m a big fan of MUG and really enjoyed the eyeshadows I’ve ordered. Of course, like any brand, there have been some “misses” but nothing as peculiar as these two shades: Last Dance and Homecoming.

Makeup Geek Last Dance and Homecoming


Although Homecoming is described on the MUG site as “medium brown with gold shimmer” and Last Dance as “satin medium to deep plummy brown”, these two shades seem to be identical. Check out the swatches and see if you can tell which is which:

Swatches: Makeup Geek Last Dance & Homecoming

Swatches: Last Dance & Homecoming

Now, I’m not sure if this was an accidental mis-labelling situation? I feel like these might both be Homecoming. If anyone else has ordered either (or both) of these shades please let me know what you think. Are these just really similar or could this have been a mistake?

UPDATE: I emailed Makeup Geek with a link to this post, and they confirmed I had been sent two Homecomings. They sent me a new Last Dance right away for free which was super nice of them! To see the REAL Last Dance, check out this post.

As always, thanks so much for reading!

  2. That is bizarre. I also think you received 2 Homecoming. Check out this swatch which shows Homecoming and Last Dance together:

    Last Dance should be a deeper shade!


  3. They do look close! Thanks for the heads up! Was looking at ordering a few more shadows from Makeup Geek. Enjoying them so far! 🙂


  4. I don’t own either of these shades sorry hun, I’m of no help! How were the swatches looking online?

  5. That’s a bit frustrating! I can see some tonal differences, but nothing significant! I wonder how that slipped past them….
