MAC Whirl Lip Liner Drugstore Dupe

MAC's Whirl Lip liner became one of their most coveted products when Kylie Jenner's lips stepped on the scene. Her makeup artist noted that Whirl was on of the products he frequently used on her and this thew makeup lovers in a tissy over this product (myself included).
I was randomly browsing the lip liner section of NYX Cosmetics in my local Ulta, when I noticed a shade called Mauve. Automatically I thought this could possibly be a dupe for Whirl, but with all the hype around Whirl I thought for sure I would have heard of this already...but I had heard nothing of the sort! I scooped up Mauve from NYX and the moment I got home I whipped the two out to see if it was a match.

And what do you know?! Perfect color dupe!!!

The MAC lipliner will cost you $16.00, which is pretty pricey for a lip-pencil. I picked up the NYX option for $3.49 at my local Ulta, not to mention all NYX products were on sale for BOGO 50% so I got another lipliner as well making both around $2 each. 

MAC Whirl has better staying power than the NYX version (put through a eating/drinking/water on swatch test) but if you are looking for a color dupe alone and don't mind re-applying here and there...NYX Lip Pencil in Mauve is hands down an exact dupe! 

Will you give the NYX option a try?!
