Dupe alert : MAC speed dial


As a 'beauty blogger' I think it's safe to say I am a lipstick fiend - I love the stuff. Of course, one of my favourite brands when it comes to lipstick is MAC, which I know is a bit cliche but I love them. What I don't love is the hefty £14.50 price tag here in the UK, which is pretty extortionate for a lipstick if you ask me (well, for my budget anyway!) So, I quite often keep an eye out for any dupes and similar shades from the drugstore brands & I thought I'd share one on the blog today! 




As you can see on first appearance they are very similar shades - both sporting the matte pink finish, with the rimmel lipstick being slightly more purple toned than speed dial. 


Top - MAC speed dial 
Bottom - Rimmel Oxford St. Fuchsia 

As you can see in the swatches above, they are VERY similar, so I'd recommend this to anyone who wants something similar to shy girl for a fraction of the price. I actually found this in a local budget/discount store but it's sold in Superdrug for £6.15 or even better on ebay for £1.65!!
