Welcome to part one of a three part mini dupe series within my Affordable April month. I have found three really great dupes for higher end products that are affordable (both are cruelty free).
First we have the Tarte Amazonian Butter Lipstick in Plummy Rose and its dupe the Essence Matt Matt Matt Lipstick in 02 Perfect Match. The Tarte lipstick has been a favourite of mine for a while. I just love the colour and texture. I found this Essence lipstick in my Priceline haul from a few weeks ago and realised that the colour is a perfect match for Plummy Rose. The colour is a slightly darker/mauve ‘my lips but better’ colour.
The main difference between these two lipsticks is the texture/finish. The Tarte lipstick is a bit more sheer and gives a beautiful sheen to the lips, whereas the Essence lipstick (as the name suggests) is more matte and a bit more pigmented. However, both are beautiful and have become fast favourites of mine!
Do you own these lipsticks? Do you think it’s a good dupe? Be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss out on my next dupe post (hint: it is an Hourglass product!).
Thanks so much for reading, Christina xo
