Makeup Dupe: Colourpop vs. NYX

IMG_5586When buying makeup, I always try to buy things I don’t already have. However, when shopping online, sometimes it can’t be avoided. When I decided to buy Colourpop makeup for the first time, I heard that the Ultra Satin Lip in Frick N Frack was a dupe for Lolita by Kat Von D. Lolita looks very unflattering on me, but I saw Kathleen Lights wear Frick N Frack and it looked gorgeous on her. Obviously, she persuaded me into buying it.

I decided to buy the dupe, and to my shock, it duped another lip colour I already owned. Exotic by NYX Cosmetics is an exact dupe for Frick n Frack by Colourpop. I had no idea, but I thought sharing this dupe would be very helpful if you had an eye on either colour. Both lipsticks are the same shade, but they have different finishes. Exotic is definitely a matte liquid lip, whereas Frick N Frack has a comfortable satin finish. Both are very affordable, so depending on your lipstick preference, either of these lipsticks would be a great fall colour to have in the upcoming months!

I personally like both of them, but depending on the condition on my lips, I may choose one over the other. I hope this post will help you in deciding what makeup to buy! Let me know in the comments if you have tried any of these colours.
