Reader Request: Swatch Comparisons of UD Baked and MAC Amber Lights

Good day everyone! It’s bright and early (a little too early for moi), and I have a reader request to share today. Someone emailed me asking for a comparison of two very famous gold eyeshadows. I obliged, and here they are:

UD Baked, MAC Amber Lights

Baked is definitely more of a true gold. Amber Lights is orangey-gold.

With flash: Baked, Amber Lights

Don’t hesitate to send me more reader requests. I will try to fulfill as many as I can! Happy Monday, everyone!

    Thanks for the great comparison swatches! I’m so glad I got to see this as I have amber lights and was considering UD too! Oh by the way, when will you be posting a winner for the contest?

    • Hey P, I emailed the winner and she sent me her address. I wasn’t sure if I should post directly on the blog to say who won. I have seen a lot of nasty comments on other sites/blogs from people who didn’t win giveaways, and I don’t want to engender any animosity towards the winner. I was worried about that, so I decided to simply close the contest and email the winner directly.

      Do you think I should have made it known who won?

        Hi Thanks for the reply…I def think that’s fair that you did that 🙂 No worries, was just wondering! Maybe just add a little addendum to the post saying that the winner has been mailed their prize? Or nada if you want! Thanks again.

      • That is a good idea! Thanks for the feedback, I will do that in the future. 🙂
