I’ve previously reviewed the Wet n Wild Megalast lipsticks and commented that quite a few of them are thought to be dupes for Mac lipsticks. Look to the review for details on the texture, pigmentation, and swatches of the Megalast lipsticks (but I’ll give you a hint – they’re amazing).
I’ve got a very close dupe to show you for Mac’s Diva which is a reddish-burgundy shade with gorgeous pigmentation. This dupe is Wet n Wild’s Cinnamon Spice! This is the closest and most inexpensive dupe I could find.
Mac Price: US $16
Wet n Wild Price: US $2.29
These are all supposed to be a matte finish, but I find them to be demimattes. Diva glides on a little more easily but all three have stunning pigmentation in one swipe. As you can tell in the swatches, Cinnamon Spice is a touch more brown than Diva, but Cherry Bomb is visibly darker and leans more plum.
These will look different on everybody’s lips–on one of my friends with a lovely fair complexion, these look deep and vampy. On me, not so much, but beautiful nonetheless.
What other dupes for Mac lipsticks do you know of?
