Discovery: YSL Rouge Volupte #27 & MAC Full Speed Sheen Supreme Lipstick


It's always so exciting when you find a dupe for a less affordable product..

I've had YSL Rouge Volupte #27 for a while now.. And it's such a gorgeous colour.. Perfect for summer.. And on my recent trip to MAC, I stumbled across their Sheen Supreme Lipstick and Full Speed caught my eye..




When I went home and swatched the two together.. This was the result..


L-R: YSL, MAC


These two lipsticks were almost identical in terms of shade expcept for the YSL one being slightly lighter.. I was truly amazed at the similarity..


Minor differences I found in both lipsticks:

YSL
- Formula is different from the MAC one.. It's creamier and it does move around a lot more than the MAC
- When it fades away it does leave a nice stain

MAC
- Longer staying power
- Formula is creamy but more of a thicker cream


I found that both have the same glossy finish


Final Thoughts: I prefer the MAC one only because I'm not a HUGE fan of the YSL Rouge Volupte formulas.. Also, the MAC one is more long-lasting than the YSL.. And on the lips you honeslty cannot tell the difference.. So the MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Full Speed wins!

I love finding dupes, especially for YSL lipsticks because they are so expensive! Nice color =)

I know how you feel about the YSL lippies, they are luxurious but do not last and i want my lipstick to last!

I notice the same things about YSL lipsticks moving around, or just fading on the lips rather quickly. Lovely colors though, and luckily the lipstick is pretty enough to take out and reapply frequently! :P

I have never tried out that YSL shade, but it's gorgeous! The MAC Sheen Supreme in Bare Again is one of my favorite super easy to wear lippies, so I will have to check it out in Full Speed too!!

The YSL lippies annoy me so much, whilst i adore the luxurious feel, they do not last at all! ugh :(

I'm not a lipstick fan at all, but I am in love with how bright, and cheery those colors are!

Delyteful Speaks said...

Änglamark - Totally agree with you.. Red lips are super glamourous and I think it gives you that beautiful polished look


Hopelessly Devoted To Makeup - Yah these are super bright which makes them perfect for the summer time.. You should try wearing a bright lip.. It's so flattering on everyone..

haha thats so funny! I prefer MAC too, YSL is good but I think if im going to pay about $30 on a lipstick, it needs to last me and YSL doesnt do that :/ oh well! nice blog :)
