MAC PLEASE ME DUPE

Hi everyone! I always love finding cheaper alternatives for a high end product, because let’s be honest, sometimes you just don’t want to pay 20 euros for a lipstick. A few days ago I was just sorting out my lipsticks and guess what? I found a perfect dupe for the oh so popular MAC lipstick in the shade Please Me!

The dupe that I found is the NYX soft matte lip cream in the shade Istanbul. This shade is so similar to Please Me, and it also happens to be a very popular shade from NYX.

The formula of the NYX soft matte lip cream obviously is quite different, because it’s not a lipstick but a lip cream. But they do look very similar once you’ve applied them to the lips, because they both have a matte formula.

As you can see in the swatches above, the colors are so similar! The swatch on top is MAC Please Me, and the swatch beneath it is NYX Istanbul. The only difference I can see is that the MAC one has a bit more of a yellow undertone, and the NYX has more of a blue undertone. But it really gives the same effect once it’s applied on the lips.

As for the price, the MAC lipsticks retail for €19,50 and the NYX soft matte lip creams retail for €7,50. So if you don’t own MAC Pretty Please yet but you do love the color, definitely check out the NYX soft matte lip cream in Istanbul!
