Duped: MAC Browset & Etude Color My Brows

By Leicarballo @leicarballo
Picture I've been using the MAC Browset since make-up school, on both me and my clients, alternating between the shades "Beguile" and "Girlboy", depending on the color of our hair. I just love how groomed and softer it makes the brows appear.
Once a product works for me, I seldom switch brands but when I stumbled upon the Etude Color My Brows brow mascara t their store, I knew I just had to try it. And since my current hair color is a bit brown with highlights, I chose the 02 shade which in my head looks a lot like "Girlboy".
So just to see  if these 2 products are indeed similar, let's compare them side-by-side. Picture

Picture The Etude Color My Brow's spoolie is actually easier to work with since its head is pointier Picture Etude's Color My Brows #2 appears lighter while MAC's GirlBoy appears with a slight hint of red Picture Bare vs. Brows with Etude Color My Brow #2 Picture Etude vs. MAC Colors are nearly similar except that once worn, "GirlBoy" has a slight hint of red as seen in the photo above.
Overall, I can say Etude Color My Brows is a good and much more affordable alternative to MAC Browset.  The latter has definitely been duped! Now I can't wait to compare the other shades against each other... :)
XOXO, Picture
