Duplicity

Afternoon lovelies :)

I've picked up a couple more lippies this week and I thought I had ended up with 4 dupes. So I decided to investigate!

*Flash*


L-R: Beauty UK Snob, MAC Pink Plaid, e.l.f. Classy, Revlon Pink Pout

Just from looking at the bullets, I think Beauty UK Snob and Revlon Pink Pout look similar. 

Let's have a look!

Swatches

*Flash*


Clockwise from top left: Beauty UK Snob, MAC Pink Plaid, Revlon Pink Pout, e.l.f. Classy

Here I think Pink Plaid and Classy look similar, but Pink Pout and Snob definitely don't look similar.

*Natural Light*


Pink Plaid and Classy look similar here but Snob looks a slight shade lighter than Pink Plaid. Pink Pout is clearly the odd one out as it's a few shades lighter than the other three.

*Sunlight*


Here, Beauty UK Snob and Pink Plaid look very close.

Overall there are no exact dupes, but I think in certain lights MAC Pink Plaid and e.l.f. Classy look similar in colour, although not in finish as Pink Plaid is matte. But in other lights, Beauty UK Snob and MAC Pink Plaid look similar too. Revlon Pink Pout is definitely the odd one out and it's far lighter applied than it looks in the bullet.

Stats

Beauty UK Snob - £3.49 for 3.7g
MAC Pink Plaid - £13.50 for 3g
e.l.f. Classy - £1.50 for 3.5g
Revlon Pink Pout - £7.49 for 4.2g


A good experiment nonetheless. Have you found any exciting dupes lately?

  1. They do look very similar, which is great for people who don't wish to pay out as much for a specific lipstick. Lovely post, it's been a great help and I now want all of them!
