Makeupalley’s Facebook page often shares possible dupes on the weekends. Today, one of them was regarding Nars Cruella and Nyx Snow White being possible dupes. Seeing as I had both, I decided to do some swatches for you! I added one to their post as well.

Here we go! Prices at the time of this post. Nyx Snow White goes for a reasonable $6.99 at London Drugs. Nars Cruella goes for a whopping $30 at Sephora. Yikes. Well they do look pretty similar in tube.

And also look pretty close in swatches! Photos taken in indoor light by a window, with flash, and then outdoors on an overcast day.

Nyx Snow White is actually more intensely pigmented, perhaps just a smidge deeper, and has a creme finish as opposed to Nars Cruella’s velvet matte finish. Now, my skintone can make any shade pull warmer than it is, therefore both of these almost look like they have a brown base, but they do not! They both look very pink once worn/wiped off, and it’s a clearly blue based pink. The flash also really brings out the pink. I wish that translated to my lips too. 😦

Having both of these too will likely last me a lifetime of super intense red lipping, but if I had to purchase one, of course I’d go for the cheaper Nyx. I did buy it in the first place after all, but the Nars Cruella as part of a Sephora birthday bonus they had at the time. I usually just use Snow White as a blush, just a tiny tiny dab on my finger blended out gently as a cream blush looks nice.

 

Thanks for stopping by!
