MAC Twig Lipstick Dupes!

Mac Twig Dupes! Rimmel Kate Moss and NYX

There’s a few people from Twitter looking for MAC Twig Lipstick Dupes, and I am one to oblige! Rimmel Kate Moss 103 and 104 are almost identical in color,  and to be honest MAC Twig and MAC Mehr are also nearly identical, so that is why in a previous post I say Rimmel 104 is a MAC Mehr Dupe.

I’ve also heard some people say that Jane Kind of Carob and Maybelline 870 Afternoon Tea were dupes, but when I looked at them I didn’t see it. Maybe they are very sheer?

My Top 17 Dupes of the Moment!

My Top 17 Dupes of the Moment

Hello ladies! I’m so sorry for not updating you last week!

I’ve been working on some surprise posts for my followers on Twitter! When you message me and ask for a dupe I take it to heart! (@LipstickDupe if you want to ask me anything! Hint- I’m currently working on Body Shop dupes!)

I’ve also been working on my Liebster Award, so that post should be live next!

For today, I wanted to share with you my Top 17 Dupes of the moment that I’m using regularly!

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick F Bomb Dupe Jordana Twist and Shine Balm Stain Rock n Rouge

I love these new(ish) Jordana Twist and Shine Moisturizing Balm Stains! I also have the Candied Coral and I wear both of them all the time. My only issue with them is the caps come off pretty easy, so I don’t trust them loose in my handbag.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Catfight Dupe Revlon Cherries in the Snow

I love Revlon lipsticks, and this is one that I’ve had for years. Cherries in the Snow was one of the first bright red lipsticks I ever bought.

Beauty Blender Solid Soap Bar DUPED!

Good morning ladies!

How was your Valentine’s Day/President’s Day weekend? We just hung around the house and cleaned. We cleaned everything. I love spring cleaning, and so does my boyfriend, so we went room to room, top to bottom, cleaning every surface. It took a while for it all to come together, but a clean house is so nice!

What took the longest to clean you ask? My Beauty Blender. WHY WON’T YOU JUST COME CLEAN?? I’ve always just given up and decided it was “good enough” and left the bathroom frustrated. I used up my Beauty Blender Solid Soap ages ago, and just can’t get myself to go repurchase it at $15.95. Like, seriously do you know how many lipsticks I could buy with that money? haha

I reserve “emergency trips to Target” for, um, that time of the month, so my boyfriend was understandable confused when I said we had to go to Target, and it was an emergency. On the way there I explained what was happening upstairs with that damn magic sponge. He told me to just throw it away and give up, but I love my Beauty Blender! I wasn’t about to give up on it now.

I wound up buying 3 bars of soap: Dove Unscented Beauty Bar, Ivory Simply Ivory, and Dr. Bronner’s Castille Bar Soap in Almond.

And let me tell you, we have a WINNER!

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Dupes

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Dupes via LipstickDupe

I love the new Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks just as much as the next girl, but at $22 a pop? Maybe not so much. For me the formula is really soft and winds up rubbing off on everything. (For those of you who are a bit more technical: It transfers. A lot. On everything.) I thought maybe adding a liner underneath would help, and even went as far as adding a little powder eyeshadow over the top and it still moved around during the day.
But hey, these are fast becoming a holy grail for so many that maybe it’s just me. Let me know in the comments!

Links are to swatches so you can see the true colors! (not affiliate)

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Anarchy Dupe Milani Raspberry Rush

Urban Decay Anarchy dupe Milani Raspberry Rush

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Anarchy Dupe NYX Matte Shocking Pink

or NYX Matte Shocking Pink. This one is pretty close. I’m not going to lie to you guys, it isn’t perfect by a long shot. But, like the second Naked 2 dupe below, it’s close enough that if you already own the NYX one you might want to splurge on a different color than something you already (almost) own.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Shame Dupe Revlon Black Cherry

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Naked 2 Dupe Wet N Wild Fergie Daily

Urban Decay Naked 2 dupe Wet N Wild Fergie Perfect Pout Fergie Daily

Some say Wet N Wild Bare It All but I don’t think it’s very close when you swatch it. It’s decently close, so if you already own it you can rock it.

#beautychat: 5 Favorite Mascaras?

@SarahLouieKegan asked on Twitter:

“@LipstickDupe I am running out if mascara and want to try a new brand. What are your top five mascaras? #beautychat”

And I thought I would answer here so I don’t have to break it up into multiple tweets!

My top 5 Mascaras of the Moment are:

Jordana best lash extreme Volumizing Mascara

1. Jordana Best Last Extreme Volumizing Mascara. My holy grail, thanks to Lauren Curtis! @laurenbeautyy Hands down the best mascara I’ve ever tried. You can order it online or find it at most Walgreens.

Dior Diorshow Mascara Dupe LOreal Voluminous Mascara

2. L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara (Fantastic dupe for Dior Diorshow mascara!)

Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express

3. Maybelline Colossal Mascara Volum’ Express- Original formula. I love this stuff! I can’t remember a time when I haven’t had this in my collection.


4. Maybelline Great Last BIG Mascara replaced the regular Great Lash. I’ve used the regular one for… 10+ years? But I love the BIG wand.


5. L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara. I use this one as a second coat over any mascara that doesn’t add enough length or when I’m going for HUGE lashes.


What about you? What are your favorite mascaras?

Budget Friendly Makeover for Valentine’s Day- High End Beauty Dupes!

Happy February! I love February. It’s my best friend’s birthday on the 5th, Valentine’s Day is always so much fun, and at the end I have my Annual Sister’s Day!

Erin, if you’re reading this: Happy Birthday! I love you!

I always feel like giving myself a bit of a makeover for Valentine’s Day, whether it is a new body scrub or new lipstick. I always want new lipstick though… But there is nothing more stressful than wanting to look your best, without breaking the bank.

I’ve come up with my favorite High End Beauty Dupes for a Budget Friendly Valentine’s Day Makeover!

If you add it all up, the totals come to: $89.98 vs $480.50!!

 Origins Clear Improvement dupe Freemans Feeling Beautiful Charcoal and Black Sugar Mask

Origins Clear Improvement :Dupe: Freeman’s Feeling Beautiful Charcoal & Black Sugar

Let’s start with a combo product: a mask and a scrub in one! The Freeman’s Feeling Beautiful Charcoal & Black Sugar Polishing Mask is one of my all-time favorites.

The Activated Charcoal helps to absorb excess oils, and the Black Sugar acts as a polishing scrub. Apply to whole face & neck, let sit for 10 mins, and then give your face a massage for a few mins. When you rinse this off, your skin will look so clean!

Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish Dupe Tree Hut Shea Sugar Body Scrub Brazilian Nut

Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish :Dupe: Tree Nut Shea Sugar Body Scrub in Brazilian Nut

Speaking of scrubs, take this Tree Hut Shea Sugar Body Scrub in Brazilian Nut and really go wild on your legs! It leaves you so soft and exfoliated! And for the price, you really can’t beat this dupe!

Kerastase Chroma Riche Mask Dupe LOreal Damage-Erasing Balm

Kerastase Reflection Masque Chroma Riche :Dupe: L’oreal Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm

While you’re in the shower scrubbing away to a new layer of skin, slather your hair in this amazing hair mask by L’Oreal! I can’t tell you how much of a HOLY GRAIL this is for me! My hair has been dyed and dyed and blow dried almost every morning. It needs some serious amounts of moisture and repair. I try to use this once a week! It lasts a really long time, and most of the time you can find it on sale for 2 for $5.

Chanel Diwali Dupe Wet N Wild Fergie Gold Album

Chanel Diwali Nail Polish :Dupe: Wet N Wild Fergie Gold Album Nail Polish

As noted in the image, you’ve gotta see a swatch to believe this one! Go Here for a pic!

Nothing quite finishes off an outfit like a nice manicure, so go for it! Gold nails are classy and eye catching.

Tom Ford Traceless Foundation Dupe Maybelline Fit Me Foundation

Tom Ford Traceless Foundation SPF 15 :Dupe: Maybelline Fit Me Liquid Foundation

I haven’t tried the Tom Ford one myself, but I trust that it is a real dupe because I saw Wayne Goss Makeup Artist do a whole YouTube video on it! See it Here.

YSL Touche Eclat Dupe Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer

YSL -Yves Saint Laurent- Touche Eclat :Dupe: Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer

We’ve all been there. You just can’t fall asleep.  Thinking about your big day tomorrow or just have too much on your mind. Don’t sweat it! Maybelline is here to save the day!

Some other dupes are L’Oreal Magic Lumi, Milani HD Advance, Boots No. 7 Radiant Glow Concealer, and The Body Shop Lightening Touch concealer. I love the Maybelline one the most out of the ones I’ve tried.

MAC Select Cover-Up Concealer Dupe LA Girl Pro Conceal Concealer

MAC Select Cover-Up Concealer :Dupe: LA Girl Pro Conceal

My personal life saver in a tube: LA Girl Pro Conceal! Omg, I don’t know what I would without this. Not only does it do an incredible job covering all manner of blemishes, but it comes in 18 shades so you can use it as your contour/highlight! And seriously, for $2.50 you really can’t beat anything else. LA Girl Pro Conceal lasts the whole day, has a brush applicator, and covers everything.

MAC Cherry Dupe Revlon Red 675 Lip Liner

MAC Cherry Lip Liner :Dupe: Revlon Red 675 Lip Liner

Wanna rock a red lip this Valentine’s Day, but not sure it will last through dinner? Try using a red liner underneath! The liner will give the lipstick something to hold onto. Check out this infographic on how to wear and make red lipstick last!

MAC Craving Dupe elf Mineral Rich Raspberry

MAC Craving Lipstick :Dupe: elf- eyes lips face- Mineral Lipstick Rich Raspberry

By far the most Pinned image I’ve created, I thought I’d include your favorite lipstick dupe: MAC Craving :DUPE: elf Mineral Lipstick in Rich Raspberry!

This is the perfect color for Valentine’s Day if you’re not sure about rocking a bold red. It’s the perfect “my lips, but better!” shade.

Urban Decay Primer Potion Eyeshadow Primer Dupe elf Eyelid Primer

Urban Decay Primer Potion :Dupe: elf Eyelid Primer

Make it to the end of the day with some elf Eyelid Primer! I can’t live without this. Not only does it make your eyeshadow last all day without creasing or fading, but it helps to hide any veins on your eyelids and makes the color of your shadow jump out!

Kat Von D Ludwig Palette Dupe Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette

Kat Von D Ludwig Eyeshadow Palette :Dupe: Wet N Wild Comfort Zone Eyeshadow Palette

My holy grail dupe, the Wet N Wild Comfort Zone Palette and me go way back. I think I bought my first one when they came out, and since them have bought a few replacements for myself and multiple as gifts for my girlfriends. The shadows are so pigmented and rich; they stay all day; and you can blend them out into oblivion.

This is the best dupe for the Kat Von D Ludwig Palette, but it also is considered very close dupes to many MAC shades as well.

Urban Decay 24-7 Glide On Liner Dupe NYX Slide-On Liners

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil Liners :Dupe: NYX Slide-On Pencil Liners

If you’re looking for some extra color, or maybe just a black that won’t budge, you’ve come to the right eyeliner! They are waterproof, smudgeproof, and apply similarly to a liquid liner. The white is amazing on your lower water line, and the black is fantastic at tight lining your upper lash line.

MAC Fluidline Dupe Maybelline Lasting Drama

MAC Fluidline Eyeliner :Dupe: Maybelline Lasting Drama Eyeliner

Or, if you prefer a gel liner, try the Maybelline Lasting Drama eyeliner. I know a lot of people will say that a good dupe is either the elf or the Wet n Wild one, but I have found that those two dry out so fast that is worth it to me to buy the Maybelline one and have it last longer.

MAC Paint Pot Bare Study Dupe Maybelline Color Tattoo Barely Branded

MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study :Dupe: Maybelline Color Tattoo Barely Branded

Maybelline has continued to impress me with their Color Tattoo line! I am obsessed with their new Matte ones! Everyone has tried these, so I don’t have anything new to add.

Dior Diorshow Mascara Dupe LOreal Voluminous Mascara

Dior Diorshow Mascara :Dupe: L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara

Listen closely ladies! This is my secret weapon when I go on dates! Unlike a lot of mascaras I’ve tried, this one isn’t goopey and stringy. It doesn’t clump, and you can build on it like a dream. I seriously do not know what I would do with out this!
