I recently did Deepika Padukone inspired lipstick Video and most of the girls asked me how they want me to go for drugstore brands instead of high-end brand dupes.So the post came into my mind. I thought of doing this here as its easier to write about one product here rather than doing a whole video on it.
Few months back I found MAC Viva Glam 3 dupe and that is FACES Ultime Pro Long Wear Matte Lipstick VERY BERRY. Although Faces Ultime pro range is not that cheap but its almost half price than MAC LIPSTICKS.
Also, Viva Glam 3 is such a stunning shade ..I think its meant for dusky warm yellow skin tone girls only 😀 (Sorry! if I am just trying to be biased towards my skin tone :D). I find the shade really amazing.
Faces Ultime Pro – Rs700
MAC – Rs -1450
Coming to the packaging Faces Ultime Pro comes in a basic matte black packaging which is super long and sleek. Due to its sleek structure it can be easily carried around clutch or a hand-bag. The lid closes with a click so no worry of the cap getting separated and the lipstick ruining the bag and twisty thing works perfectly fine.On the other hand MAC comes in usual VIVA Glam packaging with black case and bloody red twister .
They both glides easily on lips but MAC lipstick stay long period of time as compare to FACES. Both matte finish and look goods. When VERY BERRY fades away it doesn’t look good but when VIVA GLAM 3 lipstick fades away it fade with a beautiful brownish plum shade. But it doesn’t matter if you find exact shade in cheaper rate then why pay more.
MAC VIVA GLAM 3 Swatch
There is a tad bit of difference in the swatch in which Faces berry is more towards brown and MAC is towards plum side but when applied on lips I can bet you won’t be able to identify which one I am wearing..Check it out 🙂
Hope you like the swatch and do let me know if you want me to do more dupe post.I have done them in the past as well 🙂
