Ladies and Gay, we all know the struggle of loving a certain shade but then we look at the price tag and go “whuuut??”. Been there, Done that. Some newbies would either spend anyway or look for a cheaper lipstick that would compensate for it but the shade would be different BECAUSE they don’t know about dupes. Dupes have been around for a long time but it’s only been recently when makeup artists and lovers have really get into it. It probably started because of the Kylie Lip Kit by Kylie Jenner and then blossomed to other products to help other makeup lovers afford and slay like the high-end ones.
So here are FIVE LIPPIE DUPES that I love and have tried!
NUMBER ONE: MAC SPIRIT LIPSTICK VS E.L.F. PRALINE MATTE LIP COLOR
See the price difference?? Not to mention, E.L.F. is a really good brand and well-known in the makeup industry which makes it even better that it can be a dupe to another well-known lipstick.
NUMBER TWO: MAC CREME D’NUDE LIPSTICK VS E.L.F. NATURAL NYMPH MINERAL LIPSTICK
This is a highly-recommended one. Although Creme D’Nude seems a bit darker, it’s one of those lipsticks that appears lighter when applied. they’re pretty much the same shade but obviously the price isn’t!
NUMBER THREE: MAC CREME CUP LIPSTICK VS NYX SOFT MATTE LIP CREME IN TOKYO
Creme Cup has blue-ish undertone for a pink shade wherein Tokyo is a baby pink kind of shade but they’re both pretty and I definitely think you should buy both even if it’ll cost you a lot.
NUMBER FOUR: BENEFIT’S LADY’S CHOICE FULL FINISH LIPSTICK VS E.L.F. NATURAL STUDIO MATTE LIP COLOR
Benefit’s Lipstick isn’t really popular but I’ve swatched it before from a friend and it’s really pretty. E.L.F. is almost the same shade and it’s really cheap so I recommend you get this if you like going for a natural and nude look.
NUMBER FIVE: MAC SHY GIRL LIPSTICK VS NYX PUMPKIN PIE EXTRA CREAMY ROUND LIPSTICK
Both of these lipsticks are to die for! They’re a nice shade of peachy nude and it’s really pretty and you could actually wear this for a casual everyday look.
That’s all I have for you today, and I apologize for those who find it kind of weird and annoying that I made dupes for MAC 4/5 and suddenly there’s a Benefit lippie. These are tried and tested lippies that I LOVE and recommend so I didn’t really realize that it was almost all MAC dupes. Anyway, I hope you liked this and if you did make sure to leave a comment and tell me what dupes you liked and if you have some dupes you know and recommend please let me know. Merci!
