Beauty Dupe: MAC Media

This week is jam packed with crazy stuff, I have two Taylor Swift shows, a University visit day and a heap of work to get done. Anyway, enough rambling and on with the blog post.

I recently saw my friend wearing MAC Media, and I realised it is super similar to my Collection Gothic Glam lipstick called Revenge. I swatched them and the consistency is not identical, but the colours are fairly similar. If you are looking for a dark burgundy lip colour then these are perfect for you, but there is a big difference in the price tag. 



Left : MAC , Right: Collection

Media is £15, standard MAC pricing, but the Collection Lipstick Revenge is £2.99 and really I think I prefer the Collection one. The lasting power is very similar and there isn't much between these two. MAC has more of a satin finish and is slightly more moisturising on the lips, where as the Collection one is still moisturising but fairly more matte and definitely has a more opaque coloring.



Personally, for the price I would go for the Collection lipstick as they are both so similar in terms of everything else, and in their differences I feel that the Collection one peaks slightly higher.

Do you have any MAC lipstick dupes that you recommend?
