!Dupe Alert! MAC Creme Cup Cremesheen Lipstick

I recently purchased the MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Creme Cup.  It's the perfect MLBB (my lips but better) shade with just the right balance of pink.  It's a serious contender for my upcoming wedding but I'm struggling to find the right shade of liner to wear under it that doesn't change the shade colour too much.  Any ideas?

Anyhow once I got this lippy home I realised I had a very similar shade in my collection already.  The Maybelline ColorSensational shade in Born with It is incredibly close in both colour and texture to MAC's Creme Cup and is definitely worth looking at if you have a hard time justifying $36 for a lipstick (Maybelline is $16.95 but is often on sale).  I found the Creme Cup to be slightly more comfortable on the lips but both lasted a similar amount of time (1-2 hours).

  1. That's a serious dupe! I'm going to swatch this when I'm next at Priceline.

  2. OMG this is such a close dupe. Mac is so pricey that we cant buy all the shade and this particular shade is so beautiful. this dupe is on my list the next time i am going shopping.
