M.A.C Cosmetics Lipstick Dupes Vol. I

Who doesn't love saving money for something that could be the exact same product just a different packaging? Don't get me wrong, I love M.A.C lipsticks as much as the next beauty crazed gal, but sometimes the forking over the $16 for one lipstick can leave a hefty dent in my bank account. 

That being said there are TONS of inexpensive alternatives lingering around the drug-store that are strikingly similar to some of the most loved lipsticks from higher-end brands. This post is going to be Volume I of listing out some amazing cheaper alternative lipsticks, that have the same great shade and are very very similar!

M.A.C. Viva Glam Nicki (no longer available)
Not only is the Viva Glam Nicki limited edition and no longer available, you could literally get eight of the Wet N Wild lipstick for the price of one! The colors are identically that-hot coral pink color-and once on the lips the only difference between the two is that Pinkerbell is a matte finish and Viva Glam Nicki is a satin. 

Again, same deal with this pair. The colors are identical when swatched next to each-other, except Cherry Bomb is a matte finish and Media is a satin. Cherry Bomb one one of my go-to lipcolors this winter, it lasts all day long and although it is matte I feel it is not that drying on the lips!

These two happen to have identical color and finish (both being matte). The Revlon lipstick is a tad more expensive than the Wet N Wild, but it is still half the price of one M.A.C lipstick!

These are extremely similar in color shade. Both a creamy pink-nude tone. While the Maybelline option does have a gorgeous sheen to it, the M.A.C lipstick is a cremesheen. Their cremesheen formulas are very glossy and luxurious so that is were you will be able to notice a difference here!

Is there any particular choices you would like me scope out for Volume II?

  1. which girl does not love lipsticks, but on a serious note everyone has to shop within budget. Love this post to bits, I can now purchase new lipsticks on every occasion by buying the dupes of my favorite shades.
