YSL vs MAC | Dupe

Whilst clearing out my makeup collection and having endless hours of swatching lipsticks and many other make up items, I came across a really great dupe for a YSL lippy. I can hear you all screaming at me saying "TELL ME!!!" "TELL ME!!!". It may still be a little on the high-end price wise put it's a hell of a lot cheaper and it can save you a small fortune. Meet one of my favourite MAC lipsticks of ALL time *drum roll please*......

It's Creme Cup Cremesheen Lipstick.

A lot of people love Velvet Teddy I on the other hand am not a fan *shock horror face*, this to me is the perfect nude. As you can see from the photos down below, on the left hand side it's YSL Beige Charnel coming in at £26.00 (can we just take a moment to appreciate how gorgeous YSLs packaging is) and on the right we have MAC's Creme Cup Lipstick. They are pretty much identical, I will be honest with you I do find that Beige Charnel is slightly more creamy and just glides on, but I also on the other hand love Creme Cup as I find it lasts that little bit longer in all honesty. Creme Cup is £15.50 which again can be deemed on the pricey side and more high-end than highstreet, but instead of £26.00 a pop you now have a new dupe to add to your makeup collection.

As you can see they are pretty much the same exact colour and instead of the *grits teeth* £26.00 you can have pretty much the same colour at £10.50 cheaper (you can thank me later). I love both YSL & MAC lipsticks, they are great quality & you do feel quite special grabbing it out your handbag. However I do wish they weren't so high in price, I feel that they don't need to be that price but I guess as they are classed as 'designer' then that's the price you'd expect to pay.

I'd really love some new MAC lipsticks and would love to have some recommendtions from you guys so please leave me some in the comments.

What's your favourite MAC lipstick?



  1. To be honest, you've just made me want both haha! I can't resist the ridiculously gorgeous packaging of the YSL lipsticks and, as you say, they're so creamy. But, if Creme Cup has better longevity then that's always a winner!
