Heeramandi: An Over Thought Out Review

Affordable Alternatives For MAC Powder Kiss Lipsticks – Dupes

The MAC Powder Kiss lipsticks have  amazing shades that complement our Indian skin tone really well and the formulation is really really good. And thus, let me start off by saying that if you can, do opt for the MAC lipstick because the formulation is worth the price you pay. So, if you want, you can go ahead and buy the original one!

But, if you do not want to invest so much in a lipstick, here are a few affordable dupes that do the job effortlessly.

However, do keep in mind that I am duping the shades here and not the formulation, because the formulation is unmatched. Exactly why I mentioned earlier, that if you can buy the MAC one.

I have tried to put share both, Amazon and Nykaa, links for your convenience. But at times, some of the products are available only one one platform.

MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick - Dubonnet Buzz

This is a warm terracotta-ish shade which looks good on people who have warm undertones. The exact dupe that I found is this, Kay Beauty’s Red Carpet

MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick - Mandarin O

Mandarin O is a bold peachy, neon-ish colour. I don’t know how to describe this colour but definitely evaluate this one before you purchase. It can wash your lips out and make them standout, not in a good way. I am including it in this list because, if you can pull it off, you would have an amazing uncommon colour. 

Katrina Kaif has again come to our rescue in the form of Kay Beauty’s Dream Girl. The shade is very similar to the MAC one, it is just a little, like just a hint darker than Mandarin O.

MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick - Shocking Revelation

This pink lipstick is perfect for all and very easy to pair. 
The dupe that we have is from Lakme this time, it is the Lakme’s Shocking Pink. The formulation of this lipstick is nice and comfortable, so this lipsticks gets a yay! on the formulation front also.
