Swatches & Dupes: MAC Lipstick Yung Rapunxel.

Earlier this month MAC released a lipstick they collaborated with Azelia Banks on. I don't really care for her as a musician, but I thought her lipstick shade would be perfect for the Fall and Winter seasons. I was a little hesitate to buy it though because I felt like it probably looked like a shade I owned. Well turns out it does look similar to a shade I own but it's not the one I figured.

MAC Lipstick - Yung Rapunxel

Description: Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M·A·C famous.

Retail Price: $15.00

Descripton: Deep plum cream (amplified)

If you look closely you can see that Yung Rapunxel has micro shimmer.

Many followers and readers asked me if I knew of a dupe for the MAC Lipstick in Yung Rapunxel. I decided to go through my stash of lipsticks and pull out the ones I thought were similar. So are any of these "dupes" for MAC Yung Rapunxel? Let's see!

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Va Va Violet, MAC Lipstick in Yung Rapunxel, Make Up Academy Lip Boom in LMK, and Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color in Ravin' Raisin.

Be sure to watch the video for live lip swatches of each lipstick.

Did you purchase MAC Yung Rapunxel? Thoughts? Will you try the Revlon dupe?

After seeing ALL of the twitter discussions about this lippie, I ordered it when it was on back order then cancelled. I went to target and got Va Va Violet for $4.99. I love this shade.

this might look similar to the WetnWild Megalast Lipstick in Vamp It Up... It's way darker than Ravin Raisin. ^_^

I don't normally go for colors that dark (not sure why, really I just don't) but I'm thinking I might have to try the Revlon, especially since it is obviously an affordable dupe. Thanks for the tip!!

The MAC lipstick looks gorgeous on you! Unfortunately, those colors are way too dark for my skin tone :( Great post!
