Similar to Mac!
I’ve decided to start a new sort of series showing things that are similar to Mac/higher end products in general in my collection. This isn’t to showcase exact duplications, although I may come across one occasionally, these are simply just very similar colors.
These three lipsticks are all very similar to me!
Pictured from left to right: NYX round lipstick in Stella, Mac Viva Glam Nicki Minaj, Covergirl Temptress.
Mac’s Nicki Minaj lipstick is a bright pink with yellow undertones.
Compared to NYX’s Stella, it’s the most similar one I’ve come across! Nyx’s Stella is slightly more orange than pink though. The difference is so minuscule that you can only tell when the two colors are right next to each other.
Compared to Covergirl’s Temptress, Temptress is a bit more on the red side! It’s a bit less bright than Nicki Minaj, which I think makes it more wearable and good for lighter skin tones like my own.
I think that the closest match out of these two is Nyx’s Stella!
