I love my Mac lipstick but I understand not everyone wants nor can buy them and the good news is there's great quality lipsticks from the drugstore that lookalike!
(Watch my video to see the lip swatches!)
|L-R: NYX soft matte lip cream in Cannes, NYX matte lipstcik in Whipped Caviar, Rimmel Airy Fairy, Mac Faux and NYX butter lipstick in Pops|
Mac Faux has been my go to lipstick lately. It's a darker mauvy nude that still looks natural on me and I fought I would try to find something similar to it!
I've heard a few people say Rimmel Airy Fairy was a dupe and I completely disagree. It's lighter and warmer - basically it's completely different!
NYX Pops does look similar to it but my favorite is the NYX matte lipstick in Whipped Caviar.
It's a litte darker and a bit more mauve but that's why I really like it!

|L-R: Mac Velvet Teddy and Wet n Wild Bare it All|
|L-R: Revlon Primrose, Mac Snob and Revlon Pink Pout|
Personally I wish it was more pigmented because after one drink you can see the sides of my lips (that are darker!).
|Mac Snob VS Revlon Primrose|
Pink Pout as a closer finish to it as it is a matte finish (compare to the amplified finish) but it is a little bit warmer!

|L-R: Mac Up The Amp and Revlon Berry Haute|
Mac Up the Amp is a grey toned lavender and Revlon Berry Haute looks similar to it (especially on the lips!) It's a little less purple and needs to be build up a little but it's a great alternative!

|L-R: Milani Sangria, Mac Rebel and Wet n Wild Sugar Plum Fairy|
These are what I would call dupes!!
Mac Rebel is a great lipstick because it can be worn sheer or darker and this is the hardest part to dupe. Milani Sangria as a more matte finish to it but is also a build able lipstick!
Wet n Wild isn't build able but also leaves a stain like Rebel does!
|L-R: Revlon lip butter in Lollipop, Mac Girl About Town, NYX soft matte lip cream in Addis Ababa, Milani Sangria, Mac Rebel and Wet n Wild Sugar Plum Fairy|
I've seen people compare it do the NYX soft matte lip cream in Addis Ababa but I think it looks closer to the Revlon lip butter in Lollipop!
