Hi girlies! It has been way too long since I've given you guys a new drugstore dupes post, and this time I wanted to give it a bit of a twist. So I decided that this post will be dedicated to all my favorite MAC dupes! For those of you who don't know, MAC is a brand of professional-quality cosmetics known for its insanely huge selection of colors. Unfortunately, with all that awesomeness comes some pretty high prices as well. Although there are some MAC products that cannot be duplicated and are worth the splurge, I've found tons of great drugstore alternatives to others!
As always, please keep in mind that prices and availability are subject to change depending on when and where you buy. It's also important to remember than the pictures you'll see below are not a completely accurate representation of the colors of these products. So if you see two items that do not look like a match here at all, I promise they do in real life!
With that all out of the way, let's go ahead and jump into everything!
Both of these cream eyeshadows make an amazing base for eye makeup! The shimmery champagne color also makes a gorgeous highlight color for under the brow or on the inner corners of your eyes.
The Original: MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study- $18.50
Drugstore Dupe: Maybelline Eye Studio Metal Color Tattoo in Barely Branded- $6
I absolutely love this classic pink lipstick from MAC, so when I found a Revlon dupe I was pretty excited! It's not an identical match, but similar enough that I can put them side-by-side on my lips and there is almost no difference. They are both a super flattering, cool-toned pink that's perfect for everyday wear.
The Original: MAC Lipstick in Snob- $15
Drugstore Dupe: Revlon Matte Lipstick in Pink Pout- $8
These two shades are almost completely identical, other than the fact that the L'Oreal eyeshadow has a bit more shimmer to it. The Infallible line has an amazing selection of shadows (with tons of MAC dupes!) so I would definitely recommend looking at their full selection of colors.
The Original: MAC Eyeshadow in Satin Taupe- $15
Drugstore Dupe: L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Bronzed Taupe- $7
As you guys know, I typically stay far away from cream blushes because of my oily skin. However, something about MAC's cremeblend formula makes it really wearable and long-lasting for me. And although NYX's version is not quite as high-quality, it's still a great product as well and the color is dead-on!
The Original: MAC Cremeblend Blush in Ladyblush- $21
Drugstore Dupe: NYX Cream Blush in Natural- $6.50
I used to be absolutely obsessed with MAC Fluidline, but I always just felt like $16 was a little overpriced for a tiny container of gel liner. Thank goodness I found Maybelline's alternative! The formula is super creamy, and the quality is just as good as Fluidline if not better (for half the price!).
The Original: MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack- $16
Drugstore Dupe: Maybelline Gel Eyeliner in Black- $8
This shade of lipstick is definitely not something I break out for everyday wear, but for the right occasion it can be completely stunning! If you're looking for a dark lipstick perfect for Fall and Winter, there is nothing better to me than Black Cherry...or Dark Side if you'd like to splurge a little more.
The Original: MAC Lipstick in Dark Side- $15
Drugstore Dupe: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry- $7
Lately I have just been a complete highlight junkie, so MAC Lustre drops is just one of the many items I've been playing with. Although it gives a super gorgeous glow, I just can't justify repurchasing it for the price. Which is why I am so glad I found a nearly identical dupe in Boots No7 Skin Illuminator! It has the exact same lightweight liquid formula that gives off an incredible natural glow.
The Original: MAC Lustre Drops in Pink Rebel- $21
Drugstore Dupe: Boots No7 Skin Illuminator in Peach- $10
Russian Red (and it's dupe!) is one of the most flattering red lipsticks I have ever purchased. It definitely has a cool tone to it, which I think is much more flattering. Revlon really is amazing for lipstick dupes, they have a huge selection of colors that seriously rival high-end brands for quality.
The Original: MAC Lipstick in Russian Red- $15
Drugstore Dupe: Revlon Matte Lipstick in Really Red- $8
