So, my lovelies, let’s take a look at one famed heavyweight in the makeup world and it’s reputed, more affordable sibling.
I speak of Rubenesque and the alleged dupe, Apricot Frost.
Rubenesque is on the left and AF is on the right.
On the top is Rubenesque, on the bottom is AF.
While the two have that strong gold base, Rubenesque is distinctly more peachy.
AF looks more peach in the pot, so it was surprising to see it look more gold than anything else once swatched.
The color difference is noteworthy if you’re thinking of getting Rubenesque. If you want a standard gold cream shadow, save a bit of money and buy Apricot Frost.
