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?

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.

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 Venom Lipstick dupe Wet N Wild Fergie crest cabernet

Urban Decay Venom dupe Wet N Wild Fergie Crest Cabernet (previous post)

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Shame Dupe Revlon Black Cherry

Urban Decay Shame dupe Wet N Wild Cherry Bomb or Sugar Plum Fairy, or Revlon 477 Black Cherry

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick Streak Dupe Rimmel Lets Get Naked

Urban Decay Streak dupe Rimmel Let’s Get Naked

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.

Urban Decay Catfight dupe Revlon Cherries in the Snow

or Wet n Wild Fergie VI Pink, but it is a pretty big difference. Look up some swatches and see if it is close enough for you to rock!
