Australis Dupe for MAC Everhip

MAC Everhip lipstick is one of my favourite lippies, a perfect coral/pink that is not too in your face. The problem with Everhip is that it's a Limited Edition shade (although MAC is notorious for doing re-release of LE shades!).
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.

With flash

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?

  9. Australis really is fantastic! And unbelievably cheap! I loved Honky Tonk so much, I bought Ballet and Charleston and three or four others too.

    1. I love local brands doing great products, and Australis has really stepped up their game since I first started buying them in high school!

    1. You need to compare them side by side, they're soooo close to each other it's not funny.
