|L to R: MAC Everhip, Australis Honky Tonk|
While organising my lippies, I noticed that one of my budget Australian lipsticks, Honky Tonk by Australis, is almost an exact dupe for it! See for yourself.
Everhip is slightly darker than Honky Tonk, but the tonal difference is so small that worn on the lips it's difficult to tell them apart. In these pics I have Everhip on the left and Honky Tonk on the right.
Not only are they a really close colour, texture and longevity match, but Honky Tonk is cheaper too!
MAC Everhip - $36AUD
Australis Honky Tonk - $12.95AUD
The only thing that MAC has going for it is that it's got that yummy vanilla smell, whereas the Australis one has a bit of an old lipstick smell (although this might just be me, as I seem to have a pregnancy-super-nose right now and can smell things others can't!).
So if any of my Aussie readers missed out on Everhip but are still lemming after the shade, get yourself to Priceline or wherever Australis is sold and pick one up.
Do you know of any other great dupes for MAC lipsticks?
