MAC Bloggers’ Obsessions: Jealousy Wakes Comparison Swatches

Now, I have no problems comparing Jealousy Wakes to other products, because it’s the shade I created and it doesn’t bother me to share comparisons with all of you. ย Part of me hoped to find something comparable, but the other part wanted to find nothing, just because that was the whole point! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • MAC One-Off is more of a green–it has a stronger yellow undertone, less teal/blue (this shade was limited edition).
  • MAC Emerald Green is significantly yellower. This was one of the inspiration pieces for Jealousy Wakes, but I knew I wanted something with less yellow. This is a PRO pigment (and one of my favorites!).
  • MAC Gulf Stream is a blue-teal, so it doesn’t end up being comparable–it almost seemed like it would be when I saw it in the pan. ย This was limited edition.
  • Urban Decay Graffiti is a much lighter, brighter green with a yellow undertone. Would be pretty with Jealousy Wakes!
  • MAC Humid is really nothing like it, but I had a few readers ask how close it was.
  • MAC Shimmermoss ends up looking so much bluer compared to all the green shades. Again, not at all comparable!

I haven’t tried it, but you may be able to get rather close with MAC Teal and Emerald Green pigments – a little mix of both just might get you there. ย I’ll play around with it later on this week to see.

See comparison swatches!
