Dupe Alert: NYX Cottage Cheese and Rimmel ScandalEYES Witness White


 Left to Right: Witness White, Cottage Cheese

Hello Everyone!

Recently I have been finding a lot of dupes in my make up collection. To me, this is kind of surprising because when I bought these products, I did not expect them to be dupes! However, it is nice having products to compare and see which ones I prefer. TOday, I have NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in 608 Cottage Cheese and Rimmel ScandalEYES Eye Shadow Stick in 001 Witness White. I have had Cottage Cheese for a while now (probably 5 or 6 months) but Witness White is a new one for me. I have a few of the Rimmel ScandalEYES Eye Shadow Sticks so I already knew I enjoyed the formula when i got Witness White. You can find both of these at Ulta for $4.49 each.

For the color, I find them pretty much identical! They are both pearly whites. Witness White has a little bit more of a shimmer to it but on the lids, they look exactly the same. I was so surprised I just noticed how alike they are. They do differ in formula however. I find that Witness White goes on a lot smoother, creases much less and lasts longer than Cottage Cheese. Although I love Cottage Cheese, I have myself reaching for Witness White more often. As for packaging, they are both chubby sticks. Cottage Cheese is a little bit chubbier but it really does not make a difference. Overall, they are both lovely products and both are very budget friendly. I have found myself to prefer the Rimmel ScandalEYES but for $4.49,they are both amazing.

Have you tried both? Which one do you prefer?

Lots of Love,
Rena

  5. I've never used any of the two products you have here, but looks like I will be grabbing for the Rimmel one before the NYX one! Thanks for the dupe alert!

  8. The Rimmel ScandallEyes does look better (at least it does to me) but really are similar. And I like the color!

  9. Both being a white shade I'm not too surprised how similar they are. Does make me wonder how many other similar colours the two brands have. I shall have to see for myself, haha. Hope you have a great day :)
