NEW MAC Metallic Lipstick Collection: Swatches & Product Info

“Cast your lips in new M∙A∙C Metallic Lips, lipstick for a trailblazing matte, metal-plated look. Rich colour melds with smooth pearlized chrome, and is available in a luxurious formula in a full spectrum of copper, bronze and titanium colour-infused shades. Vibrant, intense, explosive: A little alchemy goes a long way” The metallic lip trend is not slowing down and I am not complaining one bit about it! I prefer nude and everyday wearable colors even if they are metallic or shimmery. Not only does the New MAC Metallic Lipstick collection give you everyday wearable metallics but also some fun bold colors that I know people are going to love! Since receiving these I have played around with the nudes and I am in love! MAC Lipsticks are my all time favorite. This collection is the best of both worlds of a lipstick and a shimmer gloss!

MAC RED LIPSTICK: Three Must Haves

My love for Red Lipstick is pretty recent considering my beauty obsessed life started years and years ago. I would say probably in the last year, so recent right???? I always felt I was one of those people who could not pull off the color. But once I discovered Lady Danger everything changed. I started wearing it for fancy nights out with an all over bronzed makeup look and just fell in love! For me when I hear MAC Red Lipstick, I just think Lady Danger but ooooh boy there are SO MANY  MAC Red Lipstick options.

Allure Magazine has been my beauty bible for almost 20 years.  It has shaped my beauty routine, filled my makeup storage with allure best of beauty products, and a magazine subscription I look forward to monthly. So when I read their article on The Best Red Lipsticks of All Time, my obsession for Red Lipstick grew stronger. They declared Russian Red, Ruby Woo & Lady Danger as “The MAC Holy Trinity”  and this is the reason I just had to have all three in my collection! You will see they are three very different red tones and absolute perfection.

Swatches Top To Bottom:

Russian Red: (Matte – Intense Blueish Red) Per Allure: “is a vampy crimson with neutral-to-cool undertones. Even its origin story is amazing: The then-up-and-coming cosmetics company created it for Madonna’s 1990 “Blond Ambition” tour, and it’s been a cult classic (and go-to winter red) ever since” 

This most certainly is a deeper truer red on my lips and I am excited to have this for the winter months.

Ruby Woo: (Retro Matte – Very matte vivid blue-red) Per Allure: “…a bright cherry color with a cooling hint of blue that’s seen more red carpets than Ryan Seacrest. Proof it looks amazing on every skin tone? A diverse celebrity fan club including Lauren Conrad, Sia, Christina Hendricks, and Rita Ora. Rihanna was so obsessed, she made her own limited-edition version called Riri Woo in 2013. It sold out in three hours”

When they say very matte it indeed is very matte. I find it best to exfoliate first (I’m obsessing over the new MAC Lip Scrubs) and I use my MAC PrepNPrime and it lasts forever and does not get chunky or dry.

Lady Danger: (Matte – Vivid bright coral-red) Per Allure: “…a cherry-red spiked with neon orange that looks particularly juicy against darker skin. No worries if you’re pale, though—the most eye-catching shade in the red-lip triumvirate pops like crazy on every skin tone”

I could not agree more with this description. The orange that pops from this lipstick is STUNNING and it indeed looks fabulous on all skin tones. I prefer this one for the summer with a tan and bronzed makeup look but I have rocked it in the dead of winter! Its just my absolute go to Red Lipstick!

DUPE LIST: BPAMC Drugstore Dupes

For those of you that are new to Beauty Products Are My Cardio when I started my Instagram I ran a series called Splurge VS Steal. Who doesn’t love a good beauty steal right??!!?? Call it splurge vs steal, drugstore dupes or just good ole dupes, being able to save money on a product that works just as well (sometimes better) than an expensive one is a win in my book.

So I thought it would be fun to move this series over to my blog. Its now called DUPE List. I will dedicate blog posts that will consist of my finds in a list form so I can give you multiple dupes at once! (YAY!!!!!)  Below you will see my dupes from the last 9 months on Instagram along with some new ones. I hope you are just as excited about this new blog series as I am! I already have the 2nd one in the works so stay tuned! Lets get started!!!!

DUPE LIST:

Makeup Dupes - Becca Dupe - Becca Foundation Dupe - Drugstore Dupes

Becca Aqua Luminous Foundation: $44

Loreal Cushion Foundation: $14.99

I found the coverage, luminous finish and longevity to be almost identical.

Makeup Dupes - Hoola Dupe - Drugstore Dupes

Makeup Dupes - Hoola Dupe - Drugstore Dupes

Benefit Hoola: $29.00

NYC Sunny Bronzer: $3.62

Hoola is a holy grail bronzer of mine so for me its worth the splurge however if you are on a budget and looking for a great matte bronzer you can not go wrong with Sunny Bronzer. The colors are a bit different so please keep that in mind.

Drugstore Dupes - MAC Blankety Dupe - Makeup Dupes

MAC Blankety $17.00

Loreal Fairest Nude: $5.99

Blankety is a more pink toned brown nude where I found fairest nude to come off a bit more brown. Loreal lipsticks are fabulous (except the smell/taste) so if you are looking for an everyday nude on a budget this is the shade to look into. This has also been said to be a dupe for MAC’s HoneyLove but I found it to be a bit closer to Blankety

Drugstore Dupes - Makeup Revolution Shimmer Brick - Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick

Bobbi Brown: $46.00

Makeup Revolution: $7.00

Bobbi Brown is noticeably darker in color but the concept of a fun shimmer brick highlight to use in multiple ways is the same. Bobbi Brown offers a color range of the shimmer bricks and I have a few and love them however you can not go wrong at all with Makeup Revolution!

Makeup Dupes - Nars Multiple - Nars Dupe - Drugstore Dupes

Nars Multiple Stick: $39.00

Wet N Wild all in one highlight stick: $3.99

I can not tell you how excited I was to discover this dupe. With the shades being almost identical to the formula being pretty darn good for $3.99. They are not any where as creamy as Nars but they are good for $3.99

Makeup Dupes - NYX Gotcha Covered - Tarte Concealer Dupe - Drugstore Dupes

These two concealers are so identical they have the same ingredients except for 2!!!  The NYX Gotcha covered concealer is AMAZING.

NYX concealer here

Tarte concealer here 

Its one of my Ride or Die products (see my full list here)

Makeup Dupes - Makeup Revolution - Tarte Hella Dupe - Drugstore Dupes

Makeup Revolution – The One For All: $5.00

Tarte: Hella: $20.00

Formula is different as the Tarte is not sticky and is very comfortable on the lips but color match is almost identical!

Makeup Dupes - Nail Polish Dupes - Just Nothing Dupe - Drugstore Dupes

All I can say is the Christian Louboutin polish chipped before the Wet N Wild one.

Makeup Dupes - Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Dupe - Eyeshadow Primer - Drugstore Dupes

Urban Decay Primer: $20.00

Wet N Wild Primer: $4.69

Read my blog post  here with swatches

Drugstore Dupes - Rockateur Dupe - Japonesque Blush Shade 2

Wet N Wild new formula blushes are amazing! Drugstore price with highend results. All three of these blushes are fabulous however Wet N Wild stepped up the game. You need them in your collection!

Wet and Wild Blush Here

Benefit Blush Here

Japonesque Blush Here 

Drugstore Dupes - Covergirl Lash Blast - They're Real Dupe

All I can say here is Lashblast is my Holy Grail mascara and if Benefit’s Bad Gal Lash and They’re Real had a baby it would be Lash Blast.

Benefit Mascaras Here & Here

Covergirl Mascara Here

Drugstore Dupes - IT Cosmetics Dupe - Milani Dupes

It Cosmetics Brow Power Lift Pencil: $24.00

Milani Brow & Eye Highlights: $6.99

The Milani comes in three different shades but this was the closest to the IT Cosmetics one that only comes in one shade. I prefer the shades to the IT Cosmetics for my skin tone however if you can find a Milani Brow & Eye Highlight that fits your skin tone its a fabulous product!

Drugstore Dupes - Makeup Dupes - MAC Lady Danger Dupe

MAC lipsticks are by far my favorite lipsticks however Milani’s matte lipsticks are up there for me. They are just as comfortable, long wearing and do not have a funky smell or taste (big deal breaker for me with lipstick) Matte Passion is honestly the best dupe I have discovered because its almost identical.

Drugstore Dupes - MAC fix plus dupe - Elf Makeup Spray

MAC Fix + Spray: $23/12

Elf Makeup Spray: $3

The Elf one has a smell that is hard for me to get past. It provides hydration well and works but because of the smell I do not use that often.

Drugstore Dupes - MAC Pretty Please Dupe - Makeup Dupes

MAC Pretty Please: $17

Revlon Sky Line Pink: $4.99

I am bias with Pretty Please it was the shade I wore on my wedding day lol and its the perfect pink for me but in all honesty if you are looking for a pretty pink lipstick that shimmers and dont want to break the bank the Revlon one is going work!

Makeup Dupes - Drugstore Dupes - Dr Brandt Pores No More Dupe

Dr Brandt: $45.00

Catrice: $7.99

Both keep you matte, refine your pores and keep oil at bay. Dr. Brandt does have a nude color to the primer where the Catrice Primer is white

 

Drugstore Dupes - Makeup Dupes - Clinique Chubby Stick Dupe

Drugstore Dupes - Makeup Dupes - Clinique Chubby Stick Dupe

Clinique Chubby Stick: $17.00

Revlon Jumbo Gloss Balm: $8.99

Some of the shades are not an exact match as you can see but the idea behind this glossy tinted balm are the same. So if you can find a shade you love that is less expensive you cant go wrong with the Revlon Balm!

I truly hope you enjoy this new series  DUPE LIST.  What is your favorite dupe find? What dupes would you like to see? Let me know in the comments below!
