Lip Color Dupes!

Hey everyone! Sometimes with my videos, it's just easier to see the info all written out as opposed to having to look back on 10+ minutes of me talking about it. I'll occasionally forget that... and sometimes it takes a post like this on the Beauty Broadcast Facebook Page to remind me...

Thank you to Dale Marie for reminding me! So here is a picture of the dupes- plus the names of the brands & shades. If you want to see the video for more detailed descriptions of these colors- click here. Also- I tested these shades on my lips and the dupes are even more similar on the lips than the swatches on my hand. Sometimes the light catches the shades certain ways & they don't look as completely similar as they did in another light. Sorta confusing... but anyway- here are the swatches!

  1. i really appreciated your dupes video! i went to look for the milani summer baby dupe of the mac lipglass. And even though i have to tried that mac product (i love the cremesheens myself) the milani lipgloss is great! it was less than $5, not too tacky (sticky) and really nice and subtle, which i think the nymphette is supposed to be. anyways, thanks so much for the review

  2. OMG Emily, I absolutely loved your dupe video. Thanks for putting the swatches on your blog. I can't wait to get the Rimmel in Sunset.

  3. Wow, excellent dupes - those are REALLY similar. I'm going to have to check out the 'Orgasm' dupe as I've been wanting that gloss! Thanks!

  4. So, today I went and bought the Miliani "summer baby" and I have to say, I LOVE IT! I actually like it better than MAC. It looks identical, and what I like even more is the texture and smell. I feel that MAC tends to feel a little tacky, which I hate, and tastes kinda yucky. The Summer Baby feels smooth and has almost a vanilla type smell. Great Dupe! Thanks for posting the info!

  5. Omg I can't find the Rimmel l/s in Sunset!! I've looked everywhere can someone tell me where they have found it so I can b on the look out! Thanks for the great dupes! !! :)
