I'm pretty sure everyone is familiar with MACs Saint Germain lipstick.. if not you should be as it's a beautiful vibrant pastel pink with blue undertones. I lurrrve it so much!
Anyway! I've recently reorganised my make up storage and as I was sorting through my lippies I discovered literally an exact dupe for Saint Germain.
It's the closest I have found. A lot of people say Barry M 100 (Baby Pink) & NYX Narcissus are dupes but when you compare them to the dupe I'm about to show you, you'll realise they aren't that great a dupe.
Collection 2000 Lasting Colour 'Bubblegum' £2.99 & MAC Saint Germain £13.50

MAC Saint Germain on the left & Collection 2000 'Bubblegum' on the right
In this picture of the swatches it's apparent that Bubblegum is ever so slightly darker than Saint Germain but to be fair it's pretty hard to tell!
In both pictures of my lips I am wearing Bubblegum on the left half of my lip (top & bottom) and Saint Germain on the right half of my lip.
It's pretty hard to tell I'm wearing two different lippies!
I just had to let people know as I'm sure this isn't a very well known dupe!
Even though the Collection 2000 lippy is almost £11 cheaper it doesn't compromise on colour or longevity of wear.
It's perfect if you have always wanted to try out Saint Germain as you won't break the bank, or if you're like me and get through this shade ridiculously quick!
So I hope you all enjoyed this post :)
