NYX to MAC Dupe Series: NYX Spring Flower VS MAC Swish

So I'm back to my NYX to MAC dupe series. It has been awhile since I did one of these, but I had every intention to geting back to this.

If you are new to my blog, this is a series that I started based on the NYX to MAC dupe list that I found on-line.

On the list, I highlighted all the MAC shadows I own and bought the corresponding NYX shadows that are claimed to dupes for the MAC shadows.

The point of the posts is to how close these said dupes really are to the MAC shadows, in hopes to save you all some money!

Here are some the past NYX to MAC dupe series, in case you missed them or just as a refresher:

So this battle is with NYX Spring Flower and MAC Swish

Here they are in the pans:


 AND the swatches..do you know which is which??
NYX Spring flower is on top and MAC Swish is on the bottom.

They DO look pretty similar, Swish is more pigmented and a bit more purple, but the colors are very similar.

What do you think of the colors? LMK!!

I'm going to have to look at that dupe list. I own over a 100 NYX shadows and might have some really good MAC dupes and not know it. LOL Great post :)

This is such an awesome post.... I love dupes (especially when it means saving some cash) They are very similar that's for sure, the MAC one like you said is a bit more pigmented but other than that you can't fault it :)

I just grabbed 'Spring Flower' because I've hit pan on 'Swish' and while I love it (I have an affection for it since I wore it on my wedding day), I don't wear it enough to justify snagging another one from the M.A.C counter. I mainly bought the NYX e/s to compare the two, lol, but it's a lovely shade and they are very similar.
