Hopefully you caught my review of my first 4 Jordana 12 HR Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencils & if you’ll know I promised some comparisons! Promises must be kept right? So here I’m comparing the shades in my collection for reference…& there is a dupe in here for a much beloved limited edition shade! Keep reading to check it out!
So just in case you missed my prior reviews, check out my thoughts on the Milani Shadow Eyez in my favorite Limited Edition neutral shades & my beloved Rimmel Scandal Eyes Jumbos! Seriously…I love these formulas so much! & of course, the Jordana 12 HR Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil review itself as well!
I’m going to talk about these from left to right, for reference. Let’s start out with Jordana 12 HR Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil in Continuous Almond. This is my favorite type of base, light & pretty neutral. Plus, matte which is rare. Immediately I thought of my Milani Shadow Eyez in Almond Cream which might be my favorite shade period. It is a limited edition shade as well & I’ve been kind of hoarding it so it didn’t disappear on me!
So…is it a dupe? Almost! The first shade on the left is Jordana Continuous Almond & next is Milani in Almond Cream. You can see Almond Cream is a bit lighter while the Jordana is a touch more peach. Close enough for me though, I think this will be a great replacement for my beloved limited edition shade!
On the right side the two swatches are Jordana 12 HR Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil in Tenacious Brown & Milani Shadow Eyez Limited Edition Shade in Espresso Line. To my eye, they are absolute dupes. Tones, texture, matte finish, & creaminess are identical. Perfection!
Next up is my blues & greens! As always, I go from left to right.
Blues left to right: Jordana 12 HR Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil in Aqua Last, Milani Shadow Eyez in Aquatic Style, & Rimmel Scandal Eyes Jumbo in Tempting Turquoise. I’m calling Jordana Aqua Last & Milani Aquatic Style dupes! Dead on color & texture! The Rimmel is a touch more green & a bit thinner.
Greens left to right: Jordana 12 HR Made to Last Eyeshadow Pencil in Endless Emerald, Milani Shadow Eyez in Green Safari, & RImmel Scandal Eyez Jumbo in Gossip Green. Absolutely nothing near a dupe here! Completely different shades & I love them all! I can’t wait until fall…I really rock green in the fall most! Love all 3 of these shades, completely different tones.
I love these pencils so much, every single one. You have to work oober fast with these to blend them out if you’re wearing as eyeshadow but they’re totally worth it! Plus, bargains! 5 years ago there wasn’t anything like this at the drugstore…appreciate it guys! Drugstore makeup can only get more amazing!
