 Best Armani Lipstick Dupes – Mac
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.

🌸 Blossom Pink Lips: Revlon or NARS?
🌸 Blossom Pink Lips: Revlon or NARS?
Pink lips are beautiful if you want to amp up a nude look. I love the color so much, I didn’t realize I picked up two versions of it. So I compared them, and wrote a review to guide you below. 🌸 Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Mousse in Devotion ($7.99) This lippie isn’t actually matte when you first apply it. It’s shiny and creamy, making it more comfortable on your lips than the NARS alternative. After eating and wearing it through the a day, it turned matte. It’s like you have to peel off the first layer to get to the real finish. At that point, the lippie felt more like a stain. But I really liked that because I didn’t have to worry about reapplying. Watch out- Putting on too much of it can make your lips peel. Use this one with a light hand. 🌷 NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment in Walk the Line ($26) This lipstick dries down quickly to a true matte. Like most liquid lipsticks, it’s very drying. I actually like to mix this product with balm to keep my lips soft. Otherwise, it does last throughout the day. And like Revlon, it also keeps your lips stained even after a full meal. This one is a pinch more nude than Revlon’s. You can’t tell at first glance, but might if you’ll be wearing it to a meeting. 🌿 Final Thoughts 🌿 This one was hard. But I have to say I preferred Revlon’s because I didn’t have to add any moisturizer to it. I still love the NARS product, and find the color more appropriate for daily wear. But the Revlon option feels so soft, it makes my lips feel like a pillowy rose.

Okay so I’m gonna be real— I got my lips done two years ago. It was by an amazing plastic surgeon in LA who owns Ananya Aesthetics and I emphasize amazing because lip injections usually last six months and mine are still going strong. That being said, because I invested in them I’m also very conscious about taking care of them and making them look lush. And I am OVER drying, matte lip products. Revolution’s lip Vinyls are so hydrating that I sometimes wear them to bed. And they’re like $6! The other product I use to keep my lips hydrated is the night facial oil I mentioned a few posts ago. I NEVER use Chapstick; it doesn’t work. I like Kosas lip oils but they’re so expensive and honestly these are just as good so I’ll be sticking with the bargain!

I am not a big fan of crayon lipsticks but this one really changed my mind. It’s Maybelline’s SuperStay Ink Crayon Lipstick. It’s on sale, only $6 now.... The pigmentation is crazy good. It’s a crayon so it’s between lip liner and lipstick. One product for two functions. The creamy texture makes it highly pigmented and easy to apply. The color lasts for hours. Not much to complain about it. Hope this item has more nude colors for everyday use. MAYBELLINE - SuperStay Ink Crayon Lipstick

-This lip tint glides on my lips so nicely and has a very hydrating formula. -My lips are plump and moisturized. -just the right amount of gloss on my lips looking like I have the right amount of lip product. -I am shook that this is a Sephora brand because I have never really gave the brand a chance. - This would not budge if you try to take it off. Like LITERALLY!!! -it is an inexpensive lip tint. - the color stays on the entire day like literally!!! - if you’re wondering what color I have on my arm; 01 and 02. -01 is the one that on my lip. Overall I highly recommend!! SEPHORA COLLECTION - Jelly Melt Glossy Lip Tint

I don’t really like to purchase lipsticks, I always use only one or two lipsticks. And I don’t usually go to cosmetic stores to find any new lipsticks. I browse online and if there were any color I interest in; I would buy them without try them on. I love colors that orange with some brownish, or brick-red, or maple-leaf red. MAC $19 Marrakesh I bought Marrakesh at least 5 times. I have no idea why I always lose this color. Every time when I realized I couldn’t fine it, I would go shop and buy it immediately. I could not live without Marrakesh. The price of MAC is affordable and reasonable. The color is a warm reddish, brick brown that looks really nice even on yellowish skin tone. A creamy rich formula with shine and matte finish. The texture is a bit dry, but that is not a problem for me. Also, after I apply this color, my skin looks brighter. Armani $38 Lip Maestro Liquid Matte Lipstick 200 Color 200 became really popular in these few months. It sold out everywhere for a long time. The applicator applies the color exactly lines and edges of the lips. The matte finish is what I like, but it is hydrating at the same time. Velvety and intense color with a rich and creamy texture make the lipstick prefect. The color is more brownish than Marrakesh. Some people say 200 is a winter color, I think it works for every season. It only depends on what kind of look you want to have. Marrakesh and 200 are the two lipsticks that my makeup bag must-have. They all deliver incredible colors payoff that lasts. Buy them!
