I love finding dupes for mid to high end cosmetics. Today, I have 10 MAC dupes for you. All of them are from the high street/drugstore. These are ones I've found from my own makeup collection, so they're probably different to other dupes you may have seen. MAC prices seem to be getting more and more expensive, so if there's something you've been lusting you may find a cheaper version here. You may already own some of these products or something similar!
Shy Girl Dupe
NYX lipstick in pumpkin pie is a great dupe for shy girl. It doesn't wear as long as shy girl but its a decent lipstick and £10 cheaper than MAC lippies.
217 brush and ebay 99p dupe
This 99p dupe from Ebay is such a great blending brush. As you can see, its not completely identical to the 217 but it does a great job of applying shadows and concealer. Whilst I find it slightly too large for blending shadows, its good for applying a wash of colour. It needs a bit more work than the 217 in buffing/blending product but its a good brush for 99p. You can find it here.
One of the best dupes I've discovered is Loreal Rouge Caresse Lipstick in Rose Mademoiselle which is similar to lovelorn - they're pretty much identical in colour. Lovelorn wears longer but rose mademoiselle has a lighter formulation as its more of a balm/lipstick hybrid. You can currently get rose mademoiselle for £4.19 at direct cosmetics here.
Viva glam Rihanna dupe
You may find last years viva glam Rihanna lipstick at CCo's but if you missed it then you may be interested in this dupe. Milani cherry crave is very similar. They look identical in the swatch but I'd say cherry crave is slightly more metallic and orange toned than viva glam Rihanna but it may depend on your skintone as to how it pulls on you. I got the Milani lipstick from this ebay seller but you can also find it on amazon here.
Satin taupe dupe
Satin taupe is my favourite MAC shadow but it does have a few dupes. One I've found is Maybelline's iced fudge. Iced fudge has silver shimmer running through it and is a lot more powdery than satin taupe. I do think satin taupe is far better quality but shade wise its very similar to iced fudge!
All that glitters dupe
MAC all that glitters is a popular shade. A similar shadow is scheherazade's tale from the Arabian Nights palette. All that glitters leans more orange toned and is less metallic but scheherazade's tale is a lovely soft and smooth shadow and well pigmented too. You can find the Arabian nights palette here for £7.99 for 12 shades.
Impassioned nail dupe
China Glaze's make some noise is identical to MAC impassioned nail polish. I've swatched both on my thumb nail and there is literally no difference. If you're after impassioned, I highly recommend make some noise instead. China Glaze's polishes are brilliant quality and just as good as MAC's in my opinion. You can pick up China Glaze make some noise for £4.25 here.
As you can see, these aren't identical but they are similar. MAC's girl about town is darker and more pink toned, however, the Makeup Revolution Lip Hug in shes up all night has a sheerer formula and is only £2.50. You can find it here.
A dupe for MAC espresso is the bizarrely named white from the Makeup Revolution Naked Chocolate white palette. These two are almost identical but I'd say espresso has better pigmentation. The naked white chocolate palette is £7.99 but its a great budget palette and I have a feeling there might be a few more dupes in there. You can find it here.
As I ran out of dupes in my stash, I had a look on instagram and found this great dupe of MAC brave - they look almost identical. You can find Maybelline warm me up here.
