If you've read my recent post then you'll know that I purchased 3 MUA lipsticks today. I just wanted to inform you all that I think MUA lipsticks could be potential dupes for MAC lipsticks. Whilst swatching my MUA lipsticks I noticed two things; one, they have a sweet fragrance just like MAC lipsticks and two, the colours of the lipsticks are similar to MAC lipsticks. I'm not saying that MUA are 100% dupes as MAC are probably better, in terms of longevity and also colour intensity but if there's a particular MAC lipstick you want then it's worth checking out MUA first, there's no point in spending £13.50 when you can just spend £1.00.

Here's the comparison photograph...

Top Row: MAC: From left to right; 'Viva Glam Gaga', 'Lady Danger', 'Midimauve'
Bottom Row: MUA: From left to right; 'Shade 4', 'Shade 13', 'Shade 11'

I honestly couldn't believe that there was such little difference between the two brands. The are both exceptional brands and I would recommend buying lipsticks from any of them but if there's no difference  between the two then you may as well go for the cheaper option.

The only thing I will say is that MUA do not offer a wide range of lipsticks unlike MAC which is a shame. 

Hope you like this dupe post! The dupe for 'Midimauve' looks better in the flesh than it does on camera too!

    hmm the MUA seems more watery and when iv used them they fade quickly.

  2. Great dupes, they look so similar. I love MUA, I have a few eyeshadows and a lipstick. You really can't fault them!

    I just found your blog :)



  3. Woah great dupes! I was thinking about getting lady danger so i'll definitely check out shade 13 (:,xx

  4. Wow, I can't believe how similar these are. In fact I can't tell a difference!

  5. I picked up number 4 after seeing this and number 5 as it looked nice
