Dupe: MAC Hue

Now this isn’t an exact dupe but it’s too close not to share! As you can see from the swatches on my hand above they look quite different but on the lips they are nearly identical. Bare is ever so slightly darker than Hue and the lip swatches are in different light so that is making them look more different than they actually are. In real life, it’d be quite hard to tell them apart.

Now obviously with the MAC lipstick being 13 times the price of the MUA one, it’s nicer in terms of smell, quality and packaging design but the MUA one at a pound is flipping great!

The only real differences in terms of appearance is that the MUA lipstick is more of a flat colour where as MAC Hue is a glaze so has an ever so slight shimmer making the colour have more dimension. Having said this the MUA Bare has got a glossy sheen to it but as it contains no shimmer the body to the colour isn’t as nice as Hue but that’s just me being very very picky!

I’ve got a few other dupes I’ve found in the process of sorting out all of my lipsticks which I’m thinking of showing in just one post rather than a bunch of separate ones, what do you think?
