MAC Lipstick Dupes
MAC lipsticks are a bit of a cult product in the makeup land with classic colours like Ruby Woo and Whirl gracing many a makeup bag. For me, the MAC matte lipsticks are a must have not just because of the colour selection but also their staying power. You really can pop it on in the morning and just need a quick touch up at lunch. They are complete no fuss lipsticks with all the punch!
As much as I love a MAC lippie, sometimes the old bank balance won’t stretch to spending £17.50 on a slightly different red shade than the other 12 I have. Worry not kind reader, as there are some bloody brilliant dupes on the High Street for your favourite MAC mattes.
MAC Lady Danger – Sleek Lip Dose soft matte lip click in You Already Know
Shade: warm toned orange
I wrote about you Already Know in my summer makeup essentials post and to be honest my feelings haven't really changed on this one. Packaging is gimmicky and you do need to reapply but in terms of colour pay off and shade, this is exactly the same as the infamous Lady Danger from MAC. And the lip click comes in at an affordable £5.99.
MAC Russian Red – Revlon Ultra HD matte lip colour in Passion
Shade: cool toned, medium-dark red
Taking a step to the darker side of red lipsticks we have Russian Red from MAC and its high street equivalent – Passion. One thing I will say about Russian Red vs Passion is that the latter doesn’t have as great staying power. It gives a lovely colour but doesn’t dry down to a full on matte finish. Other than that, it is a really lovely dupe for Russian Red if you aren’t after a full on matte finish.
MAC Lady Be Good – Sleek Birthday Suit
Shade: warm toned, dark peach
We’ve done enough talking about reds so lets go over to the nudes. Oh er, Mrs.
Lady Be Good is one of my go-to everyday nudes when I don’t fancy a bold, statement lip. It is a great dark peach shade that works with pretty much all eye shadow looks. Birthday Suit from high street favourite, Sleek, is pretty much identical. It has the same dark peach shade, amazing staying power like the MAC equivalent and is only £4.99!
