NYX to MAC Dupe Series: NYX Iced Mocha VS MAC Satin taupe

I'm back with the NYX to MAC dupe series. I thought it would be  fun to see if the dupes were really that close or just a waste of time and hopefully in the process, I could save you some time and money!

I could not wait to see the results of this one!!

SO...Can you tell the differance??Photobucket

this one might be easy since so many people are satin taupe lovers

So..yeah..Nyx Iced Mocha is on the left and MAC Satin Taupe is on the right.
Satin Taupe is much more pigmented than Iced Mocha and IMO easier to work with. Iced Mocha is VERY soft, almost to soft for me. HOWEVER, they are pretty close in color, so I think it is a pretty close dupe colorwise, not identical, but close enough for me. It you want satin taupe and can not afford the $14.50 ($11 for pro pan) than this color is really a great dupe!


Side by side..IMO they look more identical in the pan than the swatch

SO..what do you think? Is it a good dupe?

My two favorite sites to buy NYX products are at and

Totally agree with you on this. Iced Mocha is a nice taupe but yeah, it is kinda soft... I use it lightly in the crease on lazy days with just matte highlight and mascara. Looks nice using it like that!

this is a very close dupe especially for the many satin taupe lovers out there.
i have seen so many bloggers and yt gurus use gingerly. it looks gorgeous on lighter skin tones. i'm on the search for a perfect bronzer for my skin tone for the days i dont want blush. cant wait for your review & i enjoy being "blogger besties" with you lol
