Dupe It | MAC Violetta Lipstick

Hey guys and welcome to the second instalment of the series I call Dupe It! As you can probably guess by the not so original title, in this series I share with you dupes of certain high end, popular or cult products that I have found! If you'd like to check out the first post in this series in which I dupe the below NARS 'Orgasm' blush, you can check it out HERE!

So, today the product I'll be duping is MAC's Violetta lipstick. The lipstick itself is a bright, violet purple with fuchsia tones and a slight shimmer running through it. It is part of MAC's Amplified lipstick range. It has great staying power for a lipstick with more of a glossy finish lasting for about 4-6 hours - with a lip pencil you can definitely get more staying power. It's fully opaque in about two swatches over the lips and isn't drying either. This is a really beautiful shade and one of my personal favourites from MAC - I love it's bold pigmentation and how it wears and feels on my lips!

The dupe of I have for you is Milani's Violet Volt. A fraction of the price of MAC's Violetta, Violet Volt is extremely similar in finish, formula and of course colour. Violet Volt is slightly more on the fuchsia side in comparison to Violetta but in my opinion, this isn't very noticeable on the lips. I would that say that Milani's dupe is a tab creamier and more glossy in it's formula and therefore, it feels more hydrating than MAC's. Lasting power is equally good lasting at least 4 hours on the lips and overall, this is a pretty spot on dupe! I also love Milani's packaging which is always a bonus for me.
