MAC Viva Glam Nicki vs Savvy Long Lasting Matte lipstick in Blossom ($6.95 at Priceline)
These two look very similar in the tube, however Savvy is slightly warmer and deeper. Also the formula is different. Savvy is quite matte, whereas the MAC one is a satin finish.

MAC Impassioned vs Face of Australia Lasting Looks lip creme in Love Berry ($10.95 at Priceline)
MAC Impassioned is my absolute favourite lipstick, so I'm always on the lookout for a good dupe in case I run out of the original. The FOA lippy*, full name Love You Berry Long Time, is pretty close, it's just slightly deeper and more berry toned than Impassioned.
Let's look at some swatches and see how they compare, shall we? I'd say while they're not 100% dupes, they are pretty close! And considering MAC lipsticks cost almost $20 more than these Aussie dupes, these are definitely dupes worth having.
What do you think of these dupes? Do you know of any other great dupes for MAC lipsticks?
