MAC's Cranberry Eyeshadow: Dupes & Swatches

I love a Cranberry colored eyeshadow. This is a really flattering color, but I do not see it used a lot ... well here are some dupes for the MAC Cranberry that might be more readily available and more cost effective.  Here is hoping this color takes off.  Give it a try.  The swatches below are using the shadows wet. Click here for information on using shadows wet.

Hard Candy Metallic Cream Eyeshadow: #429 Rose Amour
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil: Rust
Maybelline COlor Tattoo: #30 Pomegranate Punk
NYX: Rust (not shown yet but I will swatch soon)
Ulta: Covet (Top)
Hard Candy: Secret Rendezvous (Middle)
MAC: Cranberry (Bottom)

About $8 but normally you can get it on sale cheaper
The Cranberry Color is a little more plum than the real Cranberry, but not by much

About $6 normally at Walmart
The Cranberry color is a little more rose colored than the real Cranberry, but not by much

The follow 2 picture are the exact same shadows w/ a little different lighting

From Left to Right
MAC: Cranberry
Hard Candy: Rose Amour
NYX Jumbo Pencil: Rust
Maybelline Color Tattoo: Pomegranate Punk (on the purple side) 

p.s. If you use these colors dry using a red based cream shadow will help them pop.  A good option is the NYX jumbo eye pencil in rust or the Maybelline tattoo in #30 Pomegranate Punk
