Drugstore dupes-- lipsticks, take 2

As promised,  more dupes! Here I have more drugstore dupes for prestige products from brands such as Tarte, Urban Decay, Dior and Model Co.

1a. Tarte Glamazon Pure Performance 12-hr Lipstick in Whimsy
1b. Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Rose Hip
  • Both have a satin finish
  • The Tarte shade is slightly cooler

2a. Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in 69
2b. Wet n Wild Stoplight Red
  • Different finishes (UD is satin and WnW is matte)
  • Shade is very, very close

3a. Dior Addict Lipstick in Diorkiss
3b. Maybelline Color Whisper in Rose of Attraction
  • Both have the same sheer luster finish
  • Dior is just a slightly deeper shade

4a. Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Plummy Rose
4b. Maybelline Color Whisper in Made-it Mauve
  • Both have similar sheer luster finishes
  • Tarte is slightly more opague & lighter in shade

5a. Model Co. Party Proof Matte Lipstick in Disco Fever
5b. Wet n Wild 24 Carrot Gold
  • Both finish is the same-- matte with a slight satin finish
  • Model Co is a slightly pinker shade

 Bonus ($$$ drugstore products vs $ drugstore products):

1a. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Matte Stormy Pink
1b. Wet n Wild Dollhouse Pink
  • Both formulas are matte
  • Revlon's formula is slightly drier and less pigmented than WnW

2a. Covergirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Jam Twist
2b. Jordana Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain in Cranberry Crunch
  • Both have a glossy sheer finish
  • Jordana is just slightly more brighter and more pigmented

I think that this project just goes to show that you really don't *have* to spend a lot to find great quality products. You just to do a little comparison shopping :-)
