Let’s hear it for Mekong! Hip hip hoo- wait a moment, what’s this?
Wet n Wild Comfort Zone just showed up. It claims to have a clone of Mekong!
Whaaaa? Stayed tuned for more makeup drama!
I swatched these two in an attempt to investigate Comfort Zone’s claim:
Having completed our investigation, here’s what we found:
- Mekong has more glitter, and is easier to apply. It’s smoother and glides onto skin easily.
- WnW Comfort Zone’s dupe is powdery and as a result, appears less pigmented. It’s pigmented, but because there’s more fallout, less of the eyeshadow stays on the skin.
Otherwise, it’s a dupe! The tradeoff here is that if you get the $5 Comfort Zone palette, you’ll miss out on the smooth application of Mekong. However, Mekong is rather pricey, so if you’re on a beauty budget, Comfort Zone might appeal to you. I did a post on some dupes Comfort Zone has for other shades.
