If you’re a lipstick junkie, I’m sure you know how fabulous M.A.C. Cosmetics lipsticks are. They smell like vanilla, glide on like butter, and stay put for hours. Sadly, most of us can’t afford to drop $15 per tube on the luxurious lippies, but luckily we found lower budget lipsticks that dupe our favorite M.A.C. shades. Keep in mind, dupes aren’t exactly the same as the original, they may differ in staying power, application or color.
1. M.A.C. Candy Yum Yum: This lipstick has a cult like following since its release into the permanent M.A.C. collection. Since the pigmentation is so bright it is difficult to duplicate exactly, but we found NYX in ‘Shocking Pink”, which is a similar standout with great pigmentation for only $6.00.
