Drugstore Dupe: Mac Ruby Woo vs Rimmel Kate Moss Kiss Of Life

Im sure we all have those 'splash-the-cash-out' moments, where we invest in a rather overpriced beauty product which seems like a necessity in our makeup collection. Well we all need a treat now and then, hands up if you agree! However whats even better is finding an alternative which is practically identical but doesn't break the bank, that way its an all round pleaser.

So we decided to start a little series on our blog dedicated to drugstore dupes, so keep an eye out on the blog for more drugstore alternatives! Kicking it off this week is the Mac ruby woo lipstick and the Rimmel Kate moss kiss of life lipstick. Both of these lipsticks are bold bright red shades which are completely matt.

The Mac ruby woo shade is slightly more matt than the Rimmel one, so I'm talking about super matt here! We are huge fans of matt lipsticks as they are so wearable for everyday. This gives an almost velvety texture to the lips and the staying power is pretty impressive seeing as it didn't budge even whilst stuffing ourselves at a birthday party the other day!

Now for the drugstore alternative, the Rimmel Kate moss in the kiss of life, is surprisingly more moisturising than the Mac lipstick. I did find the Mac one slightly drying at times but not this one, it applied smoothly on my lips without no fuss. It is slightly more sheeny in comparison to the Mac one but the shades are pretty much the same. Overall we were very happy indeed with this purchase as it was only £5.49 in comparison to the Mac which is £15.00.

Let us know if you've tried any of these and what you thought! :)
