Hello everyone! if you have wondered how and where to get MAC lipstick shades for the cheap without breaking the bank then i have a solution to your makeup needs, and no I’m not talking about Facebook deals that sell MAC lipsticks for 500 bucks! those are fake and you should stay far far away from them!
But a perfect dupe for MAC lipsticks are Color Studio Professional Lipsticks. I feel like I’m 3 years late to rave about these but better late than never, right?!
I stumbled upon the Color Studio counter in the mall and i could not resist having a peak and i ended up getting four shades!
The packaging isn’t that great and i feel like it could be prettier but the quality of the lipstick is insane. I picked up four shades from the pure matte line and if you know me then you know I’m not the biggest fan of matte lips but the formula of these lipsticks make me wanna buy more matte lipsticks. The pigmentation is amazing, the colors are so vivid and look exactly the same when applied compared to the tube.
The brand has an amazing selection with so many choices. I’ve only ever been this excited to swatch all the colors on the hand once before and that was at the MAC counter. Color Studio has a magnificent range if not the same as MAC. There are so many shades of orange and browns, and reds and pinks that i just couldn’t decide which ones to get.
I also found the colors to cater to all sorts of skin undertones; yellow and blue so there is a shade for everybody. The longevity of the lipsticks is very good. it stays on for hours. On me i’ve noticed it fades away in areas where i lick my lips a lot but it stays put on other areas. Another plus is that it doesn’t accentuate the dryness on my lips nor does it dry them out.
All in all a very comfortable lipstick on the lips for everyday. Here are the colors i picked up:
Here is how they look on:
When it comes down to the price you really can’t beat these lipsticks, i personally feel they’re giving MAC a run for their money!
