L'Oreal HiP Studio Secrets Professional Shocking Shadow Pigments

Intrepid and Visionary
I found these L'Oreal HiP Pigments on Clearance at Walgreens today so I thought I would give them a try. Intrepid was $3.19 and Visionary was $6.19. The original price was around $12, so I think I got a pretty good deal. Walgreens also has a BOGO Half Off deal on L'Oreal products, so that applied as well and saved me another $1.60. Both came with a mini eyeshadow brush as well.

Intrepid is a dark reddish brown that reflects blue. Visionary is a warm gold color. I took photos of them next to a full size and charm size of MAC pigments for comparison. They are very tiny, but obviously quite a bit cheaper if you can find them on clearance like I did. Both apply well and have good pigmentation and texture. Visionary is slightly chunkier in texture but I was able to blend it out and get an even swatch. Here are the swatches!

 Intrepid immediately reminded me of MAC's Blue Brown pigment when I swatched it, so I did comparison swatches of the two. It looks identical. Intrepid is an exact dupe of MAC Blue Brown pigment and I have seen it listed as a dupe on other websites. I believe on Temptalia's Dupe List they say it is a 90% match but I have to disagree. I would say it is 100% match. Intrepid is the one that was $3.19 on clearance too, so if you are into Blue Brown you should check out your local Walgreens and see if they have any.
