MAC Impassioned Dupe

16 comments


I was going through my lipstick collection the other day and found that I actually have a really similar lipstick to the MAC lipstick I bought a month or two ago! I thought I'd share it with all of you because Impassioned is such a beautiful colour and it's perfect for the summer too!
Although they look slightly different in the bullet, I can not see a difference when I swatched them and if there is it's tiny! The other lipstick is by Sleek and it's in the shade Candy Cane which retails at £4.99. The sleek lipstick has a very similar formula to the MAC lipstick, I do find that the MAC lipstick may last an hour or two longer. Both lipsticks apply so nicely, they're creamy and moisturising but they can both stick to dry patches slightly so I always apply lip balm before. The pigmentation is fab, they're both bright and bold which isn't something I'd normally wear, but it's a wearable bright which makes it such a good colour!

RIGHT: MAC IMPASSIONED

Overall these lipsticks are so so similiar! The sleek lipstick is a true dupe, so why not spend £5 instead of £15? I do love my MAC lipsticks, but if it's a colour you're thinking of getting but you're unsure, pick up the sleek one first and try it out! You won't be disappointed.

  1. They do look very similar and such lovely colours. I may have to go buy the Sleek one.

    1. I definitely recommend it :) I wish I'd seen I had the Sleek one before I bought the MAC one as it's a colour that I'll wear when I feel confident enough to! x

  4. Wooow that Sleek lipstick is so similar, I need it!! I've been lusting after Impassioned for ages but I didn't want to fork out for such a bright colour I'll hardly ever wear. Thank you for sharing! xx

    1. This is exactly the same as me! I wish I'd realised I had the Sleek one before I bought the MAC one as I'm still not sure about wearing it out in public yet! x

  8. This is such a good dupe! Sleek are really good quality too, so I'd definitely rather get Sleek rather than MAC! Such a beautiful colour too :)
