Lipstick Dupes

Let's Get Lippie - This week I will be bringing you all things lip related from my favourite lipsticks to the best formulations, how to care for your lips and wonder products. Stay tuned because there will be plenty of lip addict madness.


I think it's time for some lipstick dupes, don't you? 

Lip Colour Dupes

Chanel La Diva is a stunning, yet complex blue toned pink. It leans a little flamingo pink without the yellow tones. One that transforms on each skin colour and a definite crowd stopped however the price tag will most certainly stop a purchase. I was very happy to find a drugstore dupe for this incredible shade, the Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm in Showy is almost an exact dupe but it is a smidgen lighter, on the lips however, they are identical. 

Estee Lauder Pure Colour Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Insolent Plum is a stunning, plum shade. It is an intense reddened purple that is a nice mix of berry and vamp. An incredibly similar dupe for this beautiful, rich shade is Mac Rebel, the only difference being their undertones as Mac is a smidgen more purple however like the Chanel dupe, on the lips these are identical.


Lip Formula Dupes

The Lancome L'Absolu Velours Velvet Matte Lip Colours are an incredibly rich, creamy liquid lipstick that don't hold much shine and leave a velvet finish. They last incredibly well as the velvet finish reduces any slip, however they aren't in the slightest bit drying. They are incredibly pigmented and super easy to just swipe on and go. There is an almost identical formula in the drugstore, the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets are a creamy, velvety lip product that last incredibly well and leave a beautiful velvet finish on the lips. The only difference is how these feel on the lips, the Lancome feels more luxurious as it stays creamier for longer however they both perform exactly the same.


A famous formula dupe for the YSL Glossy Stains are the L'Oreal Glamshine Stain Splash. These are honestly the exact same product, they are both a liquidy, long-lasting gloss that you can wear sheerily or build up coats to increase colour, gloss and also longevity. Once the gloss has faded, it leaves a stain on the lips so that your colour will last all day/night. The only difference? The shade range. L'Oreal have a much more limited shade range in comparison however there are some gorgeous shades in their collection.



What's your favourite lipstick dupe?
