Spend vs. Save : NARS Schiap Lipstick (Dupe Alert!)

Spend: NARS Lipstick in Schiap Php 1,450 
Save: Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick in 014 Sultry Samba Php 350

Schiap is described as a bright fuchsia pink shade.

TEXTURE & FINISH: 
 NARS has a semi-matte finish and has a creamier texture.
Revlon has a matte finish and is a bit drying when worn.


WEIGHT:
NARS - 3.4 grams
Revlon - 4.2 grams

Swatches
Nars Schiap | Revlon Sultry Samba | City Color Cosmetics Pucker Up

I included City Color on the swatch because obviously these babies look like sisters.

COLOR PAY-OFF:
Nars - offers medium to opaque coverage in one swipe.
Revlon - you need to swipe it 2-3x to get an opaque coverage.


STAYING POWER:
Honestly, Revlon is the most long lasting among the 3 brands with minimal fading when worn after 4-5 hrs. I highly recommend applying a lipbalm prior to lipstick application because of the semi-matte and matte textures.

FINAL THOUGHTS:
Though in the staying power game Revlon is the winner, but what I love about NARS is that it is very creamy upon application and dries to a matte finish. It still feels comfortable a few hours after application and doesn't dry out my lips compared to Revlon.



Till next time,
