Spend vs Save: MAC Viva Glam Gaga Lipstick

Spend: MAC Viva Glam Gaga Lipstick (Lustre) - Php 950.00
Save:
Maybelline Watershine Pure Lipstick in P11 - Php 299.00


Swatches

Close up shot

As you can see, Gaga is a tad darker than P11 but they almost look similar when applied on my lips. Both shades goes sheer at first but the color is buildable. Since Viva Glam Gaga is Limited Edition (LE), I'm glad I've found a cheaper alternative that is locally available.


Till next time,

Thanks for the info. It's always good to know which cheaper versions work just as well.

I think the watershine is warmer and the VGG is cooler, so I'm not so sure how well the watershine would work as a dupe...but if it looks the same on lips then what does it matter right? :)

I prefer the Watershine one. 1. for its price. 2. I like that it is lighter ^^

@Chrissy - you're right VGG is a cooler pink while Watershine is a neutral pink IMO (not warm toned like you said). I tried using both shades on each side of my lips and they look almost the same to me.

Sorry if I didn't provide lip swatches coz my lips looks so dry now =(

I have the water shine one. It looks really natural & I love the shade! I don't wear it a lot though, coz it doesn't stay on too long :(
