    I know of another nearly spot on dupe for JS Androgyny & it’s only $6-another Colourpop liquid matte, in the color StingRAYE. I have it & Androgyny & next to each other it’s really difficult to tell them apart! StingRAYE, despite being a liquid matte, doesn’t dry down totally matte for some reason. But it doesn’t transfer much, stays on a long time, & if you can’t or don’t want to spend the money for the JS one, it’s an excellent option!

    Wow! Thanks for the info.

  3. Jess says:

    The swatches for Lolita and Statement Nude are definitely mislabeled. Lolita is a terracotta nude, and there is no way it could pull that red. If the color in the image is KVD, it very well could be Nosferatu, though the finish is a bit too glossy for me to believe that it’s an ELL.
