MAC Lipsticks: Find Good Dupes @ the Drugstore! + Huge Dupe List!

Come on now, whose ears don't perk up a little bit when you hear that there is a dupe out there for a more expensive, high-end lipstick? Well, mine don't. That's only because I have a shopping problem and if I want something, I tend to buy the real thing. But in doing too much of this, I may be relegated to find less expensive versions of the things I love. I hear the question, "Is there a drugstore dupe for this?" a LOT. I have heard and seen a few good dupes for MAC lipsticks and I thought I'd share some of them. I also add more as I find them! Sign up to follow my blog and be updated when I post something new!

  1. thats a big dupe list put together for MAC lipsticks....nicely done!

  2. I wish I could take credit for all that work! But I found the list on and thought I'd post it because people are always looking for things like this!

  3. Love the shades...the Revlon Color burst has also some very good shades for the darker skin tones.MAC lipsticks bring a lot of quality with them and that is why they are so loved.

  4. Great list (whether it's yours or not)!

    I can easily say that MAC's Prrr & Rimmel's East End Snob are not very similar (in my opinion). As far as I know, a dupe should be almost identical and very similar to what it's being compared to, and those two are not.

    Prrr is a pale, frosty, pinky peach GLOSS, where as East End Snob is a lipliner. I can only assume they meant Snog, which IS a Vinyl Gloss (and it sounds like Snob), so I will compare Snog, which is a true rose pink (no frost, no peach). I love both colors, but would not consider them to be similar at all. I think Snog would be more of a dupe for Shiseido's gloss in Chianti Rose.

    I own WnW lipliner #666 and think it's a great product; very inexpensive, odd color to describe - not wine, burgundy, or maroon, but kind of in that family, yet so easy to pair with a variety of different shades! I cannot compare it to MAC's Spice, but can say MAC describe's it as "pink cinnamon stick."

    That's all I have - hope everyone is safe and kind :)

    1. Thanks for your comment, I am not sure how good any of these dupes are.. so that is good to know! And yeah the East End Snob thing doesn't make any sense ha ha! I will tell you I've been wearing that WNW #666 liner for roughly 15 years... yikes and it is an excellent dupe for Chanel Lip Liner in Nude. Both are that bronzey shade of pink. I hesitate to say pink but you know what I mean. Great comment, thank you!
