Look what I found! It’s a dupe!
I’ve been gravitating towards matte nude lipsticks lately, so it was a matter of time before I was owning similar ones I gues…
This is Macs Velvet Teddy lipstick and Maybellines Color Drama Intense Velvet Lip Pencil in Nude Perfection.
Both matte, warmtoned browns. They differ a bit in texture, but not much - I love them both equally. The Maybelline one is a lot less expensive, but then you’ll have to sharpen it, which is kind of a drawback.
If you have been on the internet within the past 48 hours I’m sure you have heard of the very hyped up Kylie Jenner Lip Kits. They are a lip liner and liquid lipstick duo in 3 staple shades. My favorite is True Brown K a deep brown that looks like it may have a slight burgundy tint to it. There are also two nude shades: Dulce K which is a beige nude, and Candy K which is a lighter pinky nude. The collection launched this morning at 9 PST and sold out in minutes. I managed to get my hands on True Brown after the site crashed 3 times. I’m so excited to get it, ever since she posted a photo of her wearing it a few months ago, I have been waiting to purchase it. I’ll definitely have a review when I get it in the mail in a few days, so stay tuned! If you were not as lucky as I was to score a Kylie Lip Kit, or if you are just not into liquid lipsticks, or are not interested in the hype I have a little gift for you. I chose 12 MAC lipsticks that work as great alternatives to the shades in the Kylie Lip Kits. So without further introduction, here they are:
True Brown K Alternatives:
Film Noir (Satin) - An intense brown
Desire (Lustre) - A warmed burgundy wine
Antique Velvet (Matte) - An intense brown
Deep Love (Matte) - A deep brown wine
Dulce K Alternatives:
Royally Riotus (Amplified) - A malty, warm brown
Whirl (Matte) - Dirty rose
Spirit (Satin) - A muted, pinky-beige brown
Retro (Satin) - A muted peachy-pinky brown
Candy K Alternatives:
Twig (Satin) - A soft muted brownish-pink
Kinda Sexy (Matte) - Neutral pinky-rose
Half n Half (Amplified) - Creamy pink
Blankety (Amplified) - Soft pink beige
Let me know if you end up purchasing any of these shades. I chose MAC because they make some of the best lipsticks in my opinion, and I own an embarrassing amount of different lipsticks. Tweet me if you scored a Kylie Lip Kit or if you want a blog post, or video blog about the lipstick.
PS: I still do not have a laptop, I was hoping to share my EDC blog with you all but I have all my videos on too many devices and it is too much data to put on one to use iMovie. Hopefully I will get my replacement soon!

Hey Hilary, Mac Fix Plus has been on my wist list for awhile now. I've seen it on youtube make the crappiest eyeshawdows look amazing! Any dupes for that?
Hi there! MAC Fix Plus is a great makeup product and serves many purposes, but it is somewhat of an *indulgence*. For the purpose you have in mind, you don’t need anything that fancy! Any setting spray will work, because the only thing you need is something to dampen the brush and eyeshadow slightly to make it pack onto your lid more intense. I’d recommend the ELF Makeup Mist & Set Spray, which you can get at Target or Kmart for just $3!
The ELF spray and Fix Plus have very similar ingredients, and this spray will do the job just as well! And if ever you were to decide to treat yourself to the MAC spray, I’d recommend getting the travel size! It’s the same price per ounce as the full size, and isn’t as tough on your wallet.
Here is a list of all the MAC Lipstick dupes I have collected or found out myself. Sometimes, you really want the color a MAC Lipstick has but don’t want to spend $15+ on it. I love lipsticks, and if I can have every beautiful color out there while saving money on them, why wouldn’t I? Now, these products may not have the same formula or finish as their more expensive counterpart, but they have pretty much the same color/may be darker or lighter a smidge.
