High-End Lipstick Dupes!

Nice to see you again!
Today I'm bringing you a post I've been meaning to do for a while, but it's gonna be kind of long (long post klaxon!! Go and get a cuppa and, if you're feeling wild, some cake too) so I've been putting it off because I'm a lazy so-and-so.

We all love a dupe, so when I was clearing out my makeup ready to move house I thought I'd see how many of my higher end lipsticks I had dupes for, and the answer was..a shocking amount! 
I didn't realise how many lipsticks I had that were the exact same colour until I had my clearout! So I took some pictures of the dupes and then gave away the drugstore dupes to my best friend Emma, who always benefits from my makeup clearouts by inheriting a huge carrier bag full of makeup (at least someone benefits from my reckless spending...).

I will admit that some of the dupes aren't readily available in Superdrug or Boots as I've had them for a long time but they do pop up on Ebay, Amazon or Fragrance Direct sometimes for very cheap so it's worth keeping your eyes peeled! But I will insert links to where you can buy the dupes when I can.

Dupes for: MAC Impassioned
I would say that this Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in shade #2 is a pretty perfect dupe for MAC Impassioned! 
The formula is also similar too, long lasting and creamy, I would say the only difference, and the only thing that makes me like the MAC lipstick more, is that fact that it smells like vanilla!

These are sort of dupes, they're dupes for the colour but not the finish but I figured they deserved a mention.
These are basically matte versions of MAC Impassioned, Sleek True Colour lipstick in Heartbreaker is a perfect colour match whereas the Revlon Matte Balm in Unapologetic is slightly more coral/red toned.

Dupe for: MAC Strong Woman
 MAC Strong Woman is a limited edition lipstick so I was really chuffed to find a dupe for it!
Collection lipsticks are really great quality and probably my favourite cheaper brand!
This is Perrie from Little Mix's chosen shade, link here.
It's slightly glossier than MAC Strong Woman but for a fraction of the price, it's totally worth buying!

Dupe for: MAC Viva Glam Nicki
This might not be my best work dupe-wise, the Fashionista Natural Pink is less pink and more coral, plus it's glossy, but I thought it was good enough to warrant a mention seen as the Fashionista lipstick is only £2.99 on Ebay!

Dupe for: Stila Colour Balm lipstick in Gemma
This is another colour-not-finish dupe, Sleek True Colour lipstick in Mystic is a bit more pink and also matte.
The Stila Gemma lipstick is a little bit glittery and also glossy, plus it smells of mint which I love, but if you just like the colour then this is a dupe worth considering.

Dupe for: Urban Decay Revolution lipstick in Bang
These Urban Decay lipsticks are my favourite, so finding a formula dupe is near impossible because they're so amazing, but Rimmel Retro is a great colour match, a bit more red than Bang which leans more orange but still a great dupe.

Dupe for: Urban Decay Revolution lipstick in Anarchy
The Maybelline lipstick is a lot more glossy as you can see, but as a colour match it's pretty good! 
These both make your teeth look really white which I love in a lipstick!
But I would say that Urban Decay Revolution lipstick in Anarchy is my favourite lipstick of all time, so that's pretty hard to beat.

Dupe for: MAC Plumful
 MAC Plumful is a fab lipstick, I love it for Autumn and it always looks really polished, and I think this Avon Pro To Go lipstick is a really good dupe!
This is one of those lipsticks that's hard to track down but they do appear on Ebay so if you keep checking you might be lucky enough to find one!

There we go! I think I tracked down some good dupes, and this is just in my lipsticks, I dread to think how many I have in my eyeshadow collection!
If you have any good dupes then let me know in the comments :)
