MAC lip pencils are a favorite of mine, they wear very well and don’t dry out my lips. Although, when it comes to pencils, there are a lot of good brands out there for cheaper – sometimes with better formulas. I own quite a bit of MAC pencils, so I thought I would look through my stash and see which ones I could easily find dupes to. Here’s what I came up with!
I found drugstore dupes for MAC Dervish and Whirl. I had a hard time finding a dupe for Soar. Soar is a VERY popular color, and often sold out. I did find a dupe for it, but it is a high-end dupe.
MAC Dervish is a pinky-mauve shade, very close to my natural lip color. The liner that I think matches almost exactly is Jordana’s liner in the color Tawny.
MAC Whirl is a dirty rose color, with more brown in it than Dervish. This is a very popular “Kylie Jenner” color, or a 90’s more pinky- brown toned lip. The exact match I have found for this color is NYX Mauve. NYX actually has a lot of colors similar to MAC shades, and the formula of these are really nice.
The last dupe I found is for MAC Soar, which is a medium toned pink-brown. This is darker than the other two liners and leans more red. The only reason I included this dupe is because Soar is sometimes really hard to get your hands on. It must be a special color, because none of my drugstore colors matched it, and I have a LOT. So the dupe I found is Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Lip in 14C. I know, Make Up For Ever is more expensive than MAC, but if you’re really looking for Soar and can’t find it, this one is a great alternative. These Aqua Lip Pencils are REALLY GOOD. They’re waterproof, and they don’t dry out my lips. I love them.
