Some lipsticks are worth an investment. And yes, when I say some lipsticks, then obviously I am counting MAC here. MAC lipsticks cost a bomb and definitely, all of us cannot afford them. But what if you could get that perfect color and finish just like your MAC lipstick at a lesser price? Yes, you heard it right. Here, we are listing down some of the most popular MAC lipsticks and their dupes.

1. MAC Ruby Woo Retro Matte Lipstick:

Dupe: Sugar It’s a Pout Time Vivid Lipstick – That 70s Red. This is one of the best-selling sugar lipsticks. It is also the exact same color and has the similar matte finish. MAC Ruby Woo is drying whereas Sugar lipstick is not and feels comfortable on the lips.

2. MAC Candy Yum Yum:


Another lipstick from the matte range of MAC. This is a fun color which is fuschia in shade and looks beautiful on Indian skin tone. It is one of the versatile shades which goes best with festive wear as well as western wear too.

Dupe: NYX Matte Lipstick – Shocking Pink. This is an exact similar shade. But of course, it does not have the same intensity and pigmentation. You need to swipe the NYX lipstick twice or thrice to get the perfect color.

This is one of the chic lipsticks from MAC. It is an amazing dark berry colour. The color looks great on darker and tanned skin tones.
