Cheers to Great Friends!

Great friends are hard to come by.
I mean, would your gal pal let you purchase the last Wet n Wild *Limited Edition* Pixie Holiday Palette in Night Elf even though she found it first???
If your answer is no - your friend is average.
If your answer is yes - your friend is SUPREMELY AWESOME like mine!

*Short rambling. Ignore if you prefer, swatches below!*

If you haven't caught on yet, I now possess the uber coveted Night Elf (eyeshadow palette) and it's all thanks to my great friend, Nina.
I would have never noticed the palette if it weren't for her hawk eyes! I literally stood in front of the palette not noticing it until Nina saw it and proceeded to scream and jump in my face. Since she saw and held it first, it was only fair that she should buy it. The disappointment in my face must have been draining the life out of her because she ended up letting me buy it!
All Nina wants is the MAC Club/Too Faced Label Whore dupe which is (conveniently) included in the new Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Collection 8-pan palettes. I (the Queen of Hoarding All Limited Edition-items) want the palette to complete my collection.
I am only missing the Sugar Plum Fairy palette now! :D
After much rambling, I shall shower this post with (comparative) swatches of Too Faced Label Whore and Wet N Wild's supposed dupe :)
                          Left Side(s): Too Faced Label Whore, Right Side(s): The Dupe




(Click swatches to enlarge!)
 

Lastly, the palettes altogether!
 

Excuse the last photo as I'm just showing off!

About the swatches - you can tell Too Faced Label Whore & "The Dupe" are definitely similar but not identical. Both appear to be twins in pan but swatch like sisters. I find that "The Dupe" is more red toned and Too Faced Label Whore leans on the greener side. Both share a brown base. Another note: Too Faced Label Whore is described as a metallic brown with blue iridescent. Like I said, I think Label Whore is greener than WnW's dupe but I do agree with the official description. I sometimes see the eyeshadow greener than blue or vice versa.
I will be back to do a comparison review with more swatches once I get my hands on the new Wet n Wild 8-Pans. Oh and once again, cheers to great friends!

I have noticed that the wnw version has a redder toned brown than MAC club, but I never conmared it to Label Whore. Thanks for the swatches!

Shop,
Definitely pretty but I don't know how to wear it with other eyeshadows!

PCS,
I wish I owned MAC Club so I could compare all three eyeshadows together. Oh well, maybe next time!

Jenny,
Mmm gummy vitamins. They get a little addicting sometimes don't they? It takes a lot of resistance to eat two only, once a day. Glad I could help :D
