Flirt cosmetics (found at Kohl's department stores) look like a mix of NARS and MAC!!! Their eye shadows look like a lot of MAC shadows. And the blushes look like a lot of NARS blushes. They even have some tube things that look like NARS multiples, but smaller sizes. they're reasonably priced also. blushes are about $12 and almost everything else is $10
