Dupe For MAC Longwear Lip Color in Sappho

Duped! Spot the Difference

I recently found a nice dupe and I wanted to share it with you all. After trying on two nearly identical lip colors, I noticed that the only big difference between the products was that the one on the left costs $19 less than the one on the right. Psst: I actually like the feel of the cheaper one much better. To find out what they are and see how the two compare, just keep reading.

The pricier shade is MAC Pro Longwear Lipcolor in Sappho ($21). I'd tested it earlier and liked the color and gloss, but wasn't so much a fan of the way it dried my lips out and the uneven way it faded. It did last a long time, but it definitely didn't stand up well to drinking or eating, and it made lines I don't normally notice in my lips stand out even more.

Then I tried on Avon Glazewear in Cherry Liqueur ($2) and noticed how similar in color it was to MAC's Sappho. The Avon gloss, unlike the MAC, isn't specifically designed for long wear, although it lasted through the day pretty well. It did fade, but because the formula is moisturizing, it looked like a pretty, natural stain. So there you have it — same gorgeous color, but your lips stay moist and you get to keep some of your money.

I've tried MAC but for the price I can't see buying it all the time, I love "Revlon Red" it's sooo creamy and at around $5:00 I can buy myself more lipsticks.

thanks Bella! Love this! I too am crazy about MAC colors, but find them drying. I happened to get one of these Avon colors in a swap, and I was astonished, really, at the quality feel of the color and how well it wears. Bravo to you and thanks a lot! I think if we all contribute our favorite "dupes" this can be a great inspiration to all of us.

I just ordered 2 of these and they are on sale for $1.99! Don't know how long the sale lasts, though.

Please do more of these "dupes", as I love finding cheaper version of the same or similar shades! especially with blushed and eyeshadows.
