Love MAC lipstick? You’ll love its make-up dupes even better.


There’s no denying that MAC lipstick’s shades are amazing and there’s also no denying how much you’ll have to spend to build your MAC lipstick collection. If you’re a fan of bargain buys, then you should get your hands on these MAC lipstick dupes.

Personally, I find that a lot of make-up ranges carry a decent selection of lipsticks from mattes, creams, to satin that compare to a lot of high-end makeup. When it comes to lipstick, I wouldn’t mind spending a lot less to get the same look.


 A dupe is a similarly coloured shade compared to the “original shade.” It might be cheaper than the original, and always available to you in your area.

Sara’s Top 10 MAC nude lipsticks (€20.00) and some of my favourite dupes.

Velvet Teddy – I Love this lipstick! This is my go to lipstick when in doubt, it is described as a deep toned beige colour with a matte finish. It is long lasting and doesn’t feel drying on the lips. I match it with MAC’S lip liner in spice. This is one of MAC’ bestselling lipsticks. A good dupe here is Revlon’s Maeve it Over or Wet N Wild Bare It All.


MAC Kinda Sexy – Is a neutral pinky-rose matte lipstick. It is a great colour for people who want a shade that’s not too peachy or too pink. A nice dupe is NYX Stockholm.

MAC Blankety – This is a great shade for fair skin. Looks great with cool or warm toned make-up. Dupe Essence Creamy Nude.

MAC Jubilee – Jubilee is a warm peach with a very natural finish and just leaves you with a nice shine to your lips. Dupe NYX Pumpkin Pie.

MAC Vivaglam 11– This has a brown tone so its works better on lighter toned skins. It is muted pink-beige with shimmer. A good dupe is Covergirl Temptress.

MAC Twig – This is a lovely pinky-brown colour that I think suits darker skin tones best. A good dupe to use is Rimmel Rosetto 08-Rose.

MAC Myth – This is a light neutral nude shade in a semi-matte finish. I usually opt to use this on fairer skin tones and a good dupe is Maybelline Barely Blommed.
