I finished Makeup Graveyard and now I’m looking to fill out my lipsticks with some new and exiting shades… of MAC lipstick dupes!

Seriously, I can’t remember the last time I bought a lipstick without knowing that it was a dupe for something!

4 Jordana Lip Liner MAC Dupes!

MAC Nightmoth Dupe Jordana Cabernet @lipstickdupe from lipstickdupe.com

I am so in love with Jordana’s lip liners. They are so creamy and pigmented- and they last me ALL day long. You can find them pretty easy too at Walgreens, Kmart, DuaneReade, and Savemart Supermarkets (which includes FoodMaxx). You can also find them at so many places online!

I’ve seen them priced between $1.99 and $3.99 depending on the store.

MAC Viva Glam 1 Dupe!

MAC Viva Glam 1 Dupe NYX Matte Alabama via @lipstickdupe

Hello loves! Happy Monday!

I wanted to start off your week with a MAC dupe! MAC dupes are my favorite, mainly because there is not a MAC store anywhere near me, but there are a ton of drugstores!

MAC Viva Glam 1 is this amazing, bright red. But it’s not firey red. It’s just that perfect, everyday or special even, red.

I found the dupe on Pinterest with this swatch photo, and thought I had to share it with all of you!

MAC Lady Danger Dupe

MAC Lady Danger Dupe Wet N Wild Purty Persimmon

MAC Lady Danger Dupe! If you love the look of Lady Danger but not the price, try Wet N Wild Megalast lipstick in Purty Persimmon for $2.99!
MAC Lady Danger Dupe Wet N Wild Purty Persimmon

I’ve included some swatches too so you can see the colors right away! I think these are really, really close!

Now, MAC Lady Danger is a Matte and so is Wet n Wild Purty Persimmon. From these swatches I’d say it looks like Wet N Wild is even a little bit more matte than Lady Danger.

My Fav Fall Lipsticks From The Drugstore

Hi everyone! I’m so sorry for the lack of new content- it’s been a really hectic and super stressful since Zora broke her leg.

I also have a announcement I’ve been DYING to tell you all about for MONTHS! I’ve alluded to it a few times, so here it is: We’re moving to Merced in the beginning of October! (Central California) The Bay Area is SO expensive and hard to live in unless you’re making lots of dough! So not only have I been taking care of Zora, but slowly packing up the house too. We’re moving on the 4th, and Andrew’s last day is the 26th so we’ll have a week to really get everything packed up. I packed up my beauty desk and background already, so if I film a video in the next week or so it will probably be on my couch haha.

Anyways, I’ve been drying to you all and figured a simple swatch on lips of all my fall colored lipsticks would be fun! These are just the ones I already own and have been wearing lately; do you  want me to do a follow up post on the best fall colors from the drugstore as a whole? Let me know!

Fall Drugstore Lipstick Colors
L-R: (All are Wet n Wild) Black Orchid, Dark Wine, Spiked with Rum, Ravin’ Rasin, Sugar Plum Fairy, Vamp It Up, Don’t Blink Pink, Smokin’ Hot Pink, Cherry Picking, Stoplight Red

1wnw Black Orchid7

Wet N Wild Black Orchid- $.99

I have a love/hate relationship with WnW’s $.99 lipsticks. They are NOT long wearing at all, and if you’re not careful they will feather. But, they are creamy and shiny and super pigmented. I’ve been wearing this one A LOT lately and think it’s the perfect dark berry for fall.

2wnw Dark Wine8

Wet N Wild Dark Wine- $.99

Another $.99 one that I couldn’t live without is Dark Wine. Nice and deep like Black Cherry, but I’d say a little more red.


Wet N Wild Spiked with Rum – $1.99

This one is honestly been my everyday fall lip. I am OBSESSED. Rusty red. Or something like that.

4wnwravin rasin3

Wet N Wild Ravin’ Raisin – $1.99

Way more purple than it showed up on camera here for some reason, but not too purple. If you look at the swatch on my arm at the top you can see what I mean.

5wnw sugar plum fairy5

Wet N Wild Sugar Plum Fairy – $1.99

Oneof my absolute FAVORITE drugstore lipsticks of all time, but especially for fall, is Sugar Plum Fairy. It’s an extremely good dupe for MAC’s Rebel. A purple berry with just a hint of fuchsia.

6wnw vamp it up8

Wet N Wild Vamp It Up – $1.99

Ok, so we can all see that this is not my color. But I still love wearing it sometimes! Vamp It Up is a great dupe for MAC’s Cyber, and it’s such a fun deep purple-y black to rock every now and again. I like to mix this with other shades to vamp them up.

8wnw smokin hot pink

Wet N Wild Don’t Blink Pink – $1.99

I know a lot of you will probably say this is more of a summer color, but it all depends on your outfit! If you’re wearing all charcoal greys/blacks then I like to liven up the look with a bright pink lip. The thing I love about Don’t Blink Pink is that it is very bright, but it’s not a ‘baby doll’ pink at all, it’s quite a dark bright pink.

8wnw smokin hot pink5

Wet N Wild Smokin Hot Pink – $1.99

Speaking of dark, bright pinks- Smokin’ Hot Pink is one of my favorites year round. It’s actually a My Lips But Better color for me because my lips are so pigmented. (And hey, for the record, I’m not complaining about that!)

9wnw cherry picking2

Wet N Wild Cherry Picking – $1.99

How to describe Cherry Picking? It’s a very pink toned red that I can’t imagine living without.

10wnw stoplight red7

Wet N Wild Stoplight Red – $1.99

OK, look to the end of the post for the same color but a different formula. I didn’t even realize the other of my favorite lipsticks was actually the same color as this until I was swatching them for this post…

BUT! This is literially my favorite shade of red to date. While it is still a very bright classic red, it’s also just a tad darker and not orange toned at all.

Favorite Fall Lipsticks
L-R: Elf Matte Rich Red, Rimmel Kate Moss 103, Elf Mineral Rich Raspberry, Elf Essential Posh, Elf Essential Fearless, Elf Essential Voodoo


11elf matte rich red3

Elf Matte Rich Red – $3.00

This is the aforementioned same color… which I’ve been wearing daily since buying in June without realizing is the same color at Stoplight Red. (Which is also VERY similar to Elf Essential in Fearless, but I wouldn’t recommend wearing Fearless for more than an hour or two because it doesn’t wear very long at all.)

I love this for all the same reasons as the above reasons lol.

12Rimmel kate moss 103 2

Kate Moss for Rimmel #103  – $5.99

This is another color that I wear in Spring, but I leave it alone all Summer so that by the time Fall comes around I’m excited to wear it again. Kind of a pinky mauve color.

A pretty close dupe for MAC Twig, btw.

13elf mineral rich raspberry2

Elf Mineral Rich Raspberry  – $3.00

This shade I am guilty of not giving up after wearing it all summer long, because it is the perfect my lips but better color for me! I don’t think I will ever give it up. Also, it’s an amazing color on everyone I’ve ever seen wear it and just looks like a very easy to wear, daily fall color that you can wear with 90-95% of your outfits.

Dupe for MAC Craving

14 essential posh3

Elf Essential Posh – $1.00

This one is simply gorgeous! I love how deep of a color Posh is without being heavy on your lips.

15 essential fearless

Elf Essential Fearless $1.00

Again, it seems I am so attracted to this color that I have 3 of the exact same shade in my collection without even realizing it.

16 essential voodoo5

Elf Essential Voodoo – $1.00

I don’t even know how to describe this color.  It’s a little more brown than others, but not really brown at all. Idk. I love it tho!

20140917_162507 (1)

Extra dupes/swatches!! (L-R) Elf Essential Fearless, Elf Matte Rich Red, and Wet N Wild Stoplight Red are all the EXACT same shade!

What are you favorite fall lipsticks?

5 MAC Eyeshadow Dupes!

5 MAC Eyeshadow Dupes

5 MAC Eyeshadow Dupes

I’m a huge fan of drugstore eyeshadows. Not only do they save a ton of money, but a lot of them are so similar it’s near impossible to tell them apart when you see a swatch side by side. I haven’t tried a CoverGirl eyeshadow in so long, but the swatch for Vanilla/French Vanilla was so close I had to include it. I swear by the WnW eyeshadows– just not their new matte line with the bold colors! Those ones are quite chalky. I prefer to use some sort of primer/base for my eyes- it helps the color pop, stops creasing, and prolongs the wear. I’m allergic to the Maybelline Color Tattoos (just found this out a few weeks ago…) and I’m now on the hunt for a new fav base. What’s yours?
