Best Armani Lipstick Dupes – Mac
Armani Beauty gains great attention through the beauty markets. Even the price is at a high level. I think it is worth every penny. This brand always does a great job on each of product. Here, I have a dupe recommend – MAC cosmetics, which also provide great products at a very affordable price. These two lipsticks are mauve color, which brightens up my skin tone. Forget to mention that I'm fair to light skin tone. Armani Beauty Lip Magnet Liquid Lipstick $38 Color: 507 Garconne – Mauve Berry Armani #507 is a purple-pink color liquid lipstick. The color is very rich. The texture is lightweight and ultra-thin. It creates a matte finish without too heavy or too thin. And, it is very easy to apply. Mac Satin Lipstick $17 Color: Captive – Pinkish Plum This is a stick lipstick with pink-purple color. The texture of it is really rich and creamy. Color performance is so good. But it's a bit hard to apply. I will recommend wearing a lip primer before applying the lipstick, which will make the application smoothly. Although these two products have a different finish, one for matte and other for satin, the final finish look won't have a great difference. The color of them looks very similar. Though Mac Lipstick #Captive is called as pinkish plum and Armani #507 is described as Mauve Berry, the actual look they present is that captive is more purplish and #507 is more pinkish. Both of them are quite long-lasting and waterproof. I could wear them for more than 5 hours. Armani lipstick did a better job on transfer-proof function. When I wear it, I don't need to refine the make-up after an afternoon tea. Overall, I like both of them. Also, I think both of the brands are professional in makeup products. I will recommend to choose them on your budgets or preference.

Drug store makeup dupes 🚨
I came across a run down on Cremes Come True blog about drug store dupes of high end products. I’m a lover of beautiful makeup products but I’ve been on a tighter than usual budget recently so decided I’d work my way through each of the dupe products, try them and review them for you guys since drug store products have come so far in the last few years. The products Cremes Come True compared are: PRIMER High End — TATCHA - The Silk Canvas Protective Primer Drug Store — e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer FOUNDATION High End — Too Faced - Born This Way Natural Finish Foundation Drug Store — MAYBELLINE - Super Stay Full Coverage Foundation CONCEALER High End — tarte - Shape Tape Concealer Drug Store — MAYBELLINE - Super Stay Full Coverage Under-Eye Concealer BLUSH High End — Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color Drug Store — MAYBELLINE - Cheek Heat Gel-Cream Blush HIGHLIGHTER High End — rms beauty - Luminizer X Quad Drug Store — e.l.f. - Shimmer Palette MASCARA High End — Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara Drug Store — L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara LIPSTICK High End — ARMANI beauty - Lip Magnet Liquid Lipstick Drug Store — L'ORÉAL - Rouge Signature Matte Liquid Lipstick Make sure you follow me and keep an eye out for incoming reviews on the e.l.f.

Shimmer Palette. Have you tried any of these products and did you love them or were you not a fan?
ARMANI says it's a revolutionary matte liquid lipstick?
ARMANI beauty - Lip Magnet Liquid Lipstick I was a fan of Armani's Lip Maestro, so I got 2 Armani Lip Magnet liquid lipsticks once they were launched as they are supposed to be revolutionary. I got 2 shades 504 and 403. The Lip Magnets from Armani are matte liquid lipsticks, and the formula is a water-in-oil emulsion, like a mix of oils, pigments, and water that gradually evaporates after the lipstick has been applied, allowing the oils and pigments to merge with the lips and leave an intense color veil with a luminous matte finish. Hydrating: It's really lightweight although it has a matte finish. It's suitable for dry lips too. It's non-greasy, smudge-proof, and you can feel it quickly forming a film over the lips. Long-lasting: It's very long-lasting and doesn't come off even after eating and drinking. It's advertised to last 8 hours and I agree with that. Packaging: It's small and easy to carry. The pointy tip of the applicator makes it easy and convenient to use. Shade: Shade 504 is a soft shade between coral pink and dusty rose. It's not really glowy so it can be worn for a no makeup look. Shade 403 is deep red with a purple undertone and a vintage style. You can apply a thin layer for everyday use or a thicker layer for a special occasion with full makeup.

How to Achieve Plump Lips WITHOUT Lipliner 😄
Morning everyone! This is my secret trick to getting some snatched lips without the use of lipliner or brush! What you will need is a lipstick with the pointed “bullet” shape intact or be slightly flat and circular! The bullet shape is a shape that you see often with new lipstick batches. In photo 1, I used the Mac x PatrickStarrrr holiday lipstick in Spank Me Santa. This formula doesn’t have lip plumping factors and I did not contour the immediate areas surrounding my mouth! I used photo 2 to show you what my lips generally look like without any makeup surrounding it. I also don’t use lip fillers! This is the easiest thing you could do for yourself if you’re in a pinch! Naturally, everybody swipes their lipstick onto their lips. This is fine and normal but it can get messy if you’re trying to create a certain shape to the lips. Instead of swiping, use the shape of the lipstick to your advantage and STAMP the color on. Start with the centers of your lips(I.e the Cupid’s bow or the center of your bottom lips) These areas generally have more surface area and will help shape the rest of your lips. Use your lipstick’s shape to stamp the two “dots” or “teardrops”(depending on the shape of your lipstick) onto your lips. Stamp it slightly higher than your actual lip to create an illusion of plumper lips and continue with the rest of your lips. Make sure be even in your placement by staying level with your previous stamp. You can overlap the stamps if needed. You did it correctly if you notice that, as you stamp, a rough draft of a line starts to develop! If you see slight spacing in-between, it’s normal. Now all you have to do is take your finger and blend the edges out to create your line! The best part about using this method is that it helps save you product, especially if your lipstick is a long-lasting fuller coverage! Viola! Say hello to your plump lips! Tip: Formula matters for this hack to work. You want something that’s not super emollient and just moves everywhere. Your average hydrating and matte formulas will work just fine. However, if it’s too slippery, it might be difficult to keep your shape stable throughout the day. Regardless just try it out and see how it works for you! Example of these formulas: MAC - MAC Satin Lipstick 3CE - Mood Recipe Matte <-BEST LIPSTICK EVERRRRRRRRRR. I only really ever buy lipstick from 3CE. More on that on another post 😆
Dupe, worth it? Estée Lauder VS. MAC
（The Mac lipstick is in the travel size version, not full size. I believe that red lipstick should be a staple item in every girl’s makeup collection. My favourite red lipsticks include Estée Lauder’s Pure Color Envy Matte Sculpting Lipstick in the shade 333 Persuasive and MAC’s Matte Lipstick in the shade Chili. They happen to be very similar in terms of colour and consistency, and I think MAC’s Chili makes a pretty good dupe of Estée Lauder’s Persuasive. Estée Lauder ($53): I have a neutral skin tone, and this lipstick really brightens my complexion, so I use it almost every day! It is in a beautiful warm red colour that resembles the colour of autumn leaves. I find this lipstick to be very versatile and suitable for any occasion because it goes well with any outfit. I love the application because it is in a creamy texture that glides on the lips like butter. Even though it creates a matte finish, it is not drying at all. One downside about this lipstick is that it is not very long-lasting but it has a very high colour payoff. MAC ($30 / full size, $21 / travel size): Chilli is one of MAC’s most famous products, and I can definitely see why and agree with its popularity! Its colour is more of a deeper and richer brick red compared to Estée Lauder’s lipstick. It adds more liveliness to my face. Chilli has a similar creamy texture that leaves a matte finish, high colour payoff and is equally not very long-lasting. I also find that Chilli complements other lipsticks really well, and smells like chocolate. The only fault I find in this lipstick is that it is more drying than Estée Lauder so you need to moisturise your lips well before using. Apart from that, I love the colour more and therefore thinks that MAC is more worth it.

Lipsticks: Solid (Creamy) vs. Liquid (Mousse)
Lipsticks come in different textures that can help you achieve different looks. With similar shades, I am still able to switch up the mood by using either a creamy lipstick or a mousse type, depending on my lips’ condition and the occasion. Solid Lipstick: Estée Lauder Pure Colour Envy Sculpting Lipstick #410 Dynamic For a daily and effortless look, I tend to gravitate towards this product because it has an MLBB shade that complements my neutral skin tone really well. It naturally brightens up my face without attracting too much attention to my lips, so I like to use it when I want to emphasize my eye makeup or when I’m feeling lazy and want to go out with a bare face. This lipstick feels very moisturizing and creamy without being too heavy and oily. It glides right onto the lips, and the color payoff is moderate, which helps me to achieve that natural look. However, because of its formula, it is not very long lasting. Nevertheless, it doesn’t really bother me because I find it easier to retouch the lip colors with a solid lipstick as they are easier to blend. Liquid Lipstick: Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour #196 Precieux This product is also in an MLBB shade that is more of a dried rose color with gold shimmers. What is different about this product compared to the Estee Lauder lipstick is that it is in a liquid, mousse form. This gives me a really soft and airy matte finish without drying my lips out, which I absolutely adore. What is more amazing is that it doesn’t emphasize the wrinkles and cracks in my lips, unlike most of the matte lipsticks on the market! This lipstick tends to make me look more mature given my neutral skin tone, which I like when I want to go for a sophisticated look. Because of its special texture and finish, I prefer this one over the solid lipstick.

Makeup Dupes! Compare and contrast 💋
Tell me, who doesn’t love a red lip stain? If you’re feeling down, there’s nothing better to lift your mood!😍 Let’s take my two favorites and compare them! First, one - Sephora Lip Stain, the color I wear is called no 1, it’s a gorgeous lip stain, a velvety matte that goes on like a dream 👄loads of pigment that keeps the color strong, without being sticky. Some lip stains dry the lips out but the Sephora Lip Stain doesn’t do that, never ever! So comfortable to wear, I can wear it on my 6-hour shift at work, it doesn’t move! It comes in a choice of colors. Two major plus points for me, you can buy it for around $15.00 and it’s small enough to fit into your purse, double whammy right there!👏🏾 Katvon D Everlasting liquid lipstick, I love this one too, it’s amazing! Goes on like a dream, luxe creamy formula, so lightweight and comfortable, not at all sticky, Katvon D is even higher in pigment, this means the amazing color is even stronger than the Sephora lip stain. I always wear Katvon D Everlasting liquid lipstick in brick red 💋beautiful! Totally stunning! What’s great about this one, it’s vegan and there are 21 other colors to choose from. Love them both! Although Katvon D is a bit more expensive than Sephora lip stain, I think Katvon is my overall favorite. Make sure you buy strong makeup remover though because, I’m not lying when I say, they don’t come off easily - no matter how much kissing I do! 😘

Dupe, Worth it? L.O.V versus ARMANI lipstick
This review is going to talk about two liquid lipstick products at different prices, which are Lip Maestro Liquid Lipstick from ARMANI, and Fatal Muse Liquid Matte Lipstick from L.O.V. Let’s see if the drug store brand can be a dupe and beat high-end brand. ARMANI Lip Maestro Liquid Lipstick NO.405 - € 36 This is the best seller of ARMANI, and I have no doubt about that because after I use it, I really love it. The texture is so smooth, so creamy, and it goes on like a gloss but dries matte, a velvety matte, which is so gorgeous. This lip colour is highly pigmented, so it’s full coverage and can deliver a rich-looking finish. Its iconic formula is giving lips ultimate comfort, so it doesn’t feel heavy or dry on my lips. And no sticky at all. The colour can be transferred while eating or drinking, but I think it’s acceptable. The other thing I would like to mention is that it’s easy to apply with the applicator and shape a beautiful lip contour. L.O.V Fatal Muse Liquid Matte Lipstick NO.700 - € 8.99 This is a brand that comes from Germany and it’s also a sub-brand of Catrice. You can buy it from its official website or drug store. I have seen people talked about this brand online and said it is a dupe of ARMANI liquid lipstick, so I got one to have a try, but to be honest, I don’t think this is a substitute for ARMANI. The colour is truly beautiful, and the pigmentation is intense. The velvety matte finish is also very nice. The texture goes smooth and well-blended, but it feels heavier on my lips than ARMANI does. It feels that the colour just sitting on my lips rather than coating them, so it’s easily transferred as well. And I don’ know why but the liquid just spilt over and makes the tube mouth always messy. The applicator is not good either. There is always too much liquid on it, and the shape of the applicator makes me always apply the colour out of my lip line. So I would say L.O.V is still a decent liquid lipstick product at its price (just € 8.99), but it cannot beat ARMANI liquid lipstick. Although ARMANI liquid lipstick has a 4 times higher price than L.O.V, it is worth it.

My Lipstick Awards!
I choose these three lipsticks as my favorites according to different situations after comparing and struggling for a long time since I have lots of lipsticks, and each of them is unique. TOM FORD LIP COLOR 15 WILD GINGER—for outing The texture of TOM FORD lipstick is really amazing since it has high color saturation and it is also creamy and moist. The color of TF 15 WILD GINGER is a wonderful mix of red and orange, which can easily make me look younger and more energetic. Trust me, it is the most suitable lipstick for outing and traveling. ESTEE LAUDER Pure Color Envy Lipstick/Rouge 260 ECCENTRIC—for dating The color of ESTEE LAUDER Pure Color Envy Lipstick 260 ECCENTRIC is fantastic pink, which can make me look super soft and elegant. My boyfriend always compliments that I am so romantic and attractive once I use this one in dating. Believe it or not, this lipstick is the most perfect one for dating since it is generally challenging for boys to understand the lip color. In addition, it is continuously moisturized throughout the day, although I always apply it thickly. MAC AMPLIFIED LIPSTICK DUBONNET—for daily life For me, MAC DUBONNET is the most frequently used lipstick. The color of this one is a marvelous mix of red and brown. I can say that MAC DOBONNET is the best representative in a reddish brown color scheme. It is so easy-matching that you can easily show your disposition. Besides, what fascinates me most is that it contributes to covering my lip lines to some extent. In conclusion, if I cannot decide which lipstick to use, I would pick up this one in the end. Believe me, and please buy it now without hesitation.
Dupe Lipsticks Pat McGrath Flesh 3 VS Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick 534B Makeup can get extremely expensive, especially because there’s so many products that can be used in combination and I’m always willing to try new products, so it definitely adds up. Because of this, I’m always open to trying makeup dupes whenever I find them. Makeup dupes can be a very hit or miss thing. Some are just outright unusable, while others work better than expected and can end up saving you a lot of money. One of these hits that I’ve stumbled across is the Wet n wild silk finish lipstick. Prior to finding this, I’ve been using Pat Mcgrath’s flesh 3 lipstick. Both of these have a similar brown red color, which makes the wet n wild a suitable replacement for the pat mcgrath. The main differences between the two is the texture and look it leaves on your lip. Pat McGrath’s is more of a matte texture where as the Wet N Wild is more of a lustre texture. Other than that, they are extremely similar. The Pat McGrath one costs $40 where as Wet N Wild is only $2, so I would 99% of the time go with the cheaper wet n wild option unless I was in a situation where I needed a matte look instead of a lustre look. However, most of the time I use the lipstick for the color and don’t worry too much about the texture.

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
