My Top 5 MAC Lipsticks + Dupes

I will always love MAC lipsticks.  They were some of the first high-end lipsticks I ever bought, and they are just amazing.  Every color and formula that I own is great, especially the ones in the Lustre formula, which is my favorite finish.  MAC has tons of colors to choose from, and who can resist that iconic little black bullet?  So chic.  Here are my top five!

  From left to right: See Sheer, Ladybug, Pink Plaid, Hug Me, Sweetie

See Sheer is my o.g.  I have purchased probably 5 tubes, and it is just the perfect sheer, coral-red.  It doesn’t make my teeth look yellow, and it is super moisturizing and smooth.  A dupe for it is Maybelline Colorsensational in Park Avenue Peach.  I compared them here.

The next color is Ladybug, my favorite red.  This is a nice, deeper toned sheer tomato red.  This shade is good for my fellow pale girls who like red, but don’t want to look scary!  Haha 🙂 a dupe for this one is the Revlon Lip Butter in Candy Apple.  Comparison here.  These are both sheer and very moisturizing.

Next up is a matte finish, named Pink Plaid, a dirty blue toned pink with a hint of mauve.  This is a matte finish that is non-drying and this color is a great pink that isn’t as light as a baby pink.  A dupe for this color is the Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in Make Me Pink.  Here is the comparison.

Hug Me is a brown-y nude with a hint of pink.  It is a darker nude, so it won’t give you that “concealer lips” type of look.  This is also a Lustre, so it’s very moisturizing.  A dupe for this one is Rimmel’s Airy Fairy, which is a very popular color. Here they are side by side.

Lastly, we have Sweetie, which is a purse staple for me.  This is a pretty, berry purple-y pink with some shimmer.  The color is similar to MAC’s Syrup and Plumful, which are also faves 🙂 This is very sheer, but you can build it up.  The color is so pretty and great for everyday.  A dupe I have found for this one is Revlon’s Lip Butter in the color Berry Smoothie.  Check out swatches here.  I love the Revlon Lip Butters.

So, those are my top five!  Do you like MAC lipsticks?  What are your favorites?
