MAC Hug Me Dupe

I was cleaning my makeup drawer this morning when I started  swatching my lipsticks. I had the Mac Hug Me lipstick for  quite but I barely use it. I find the color too light for my skintone. While swatching, I noticed that Fashion 21 Aqualicious Arctic stone is almost the same shade as MAC's Hug Me!! See my post here about Fashion 21 Aqualicious lipstick.
They look almost identical when worn on the lips!! Yey!! 

When swatched, it is fairly noticeable that MAC Hug Me is sheerer and  glossier than the Fashion 21. I used Fashion 21 more since it is more pigmented and covers my dark lips better. Do you know of any MAC dupes? Care to share? 
Have a nice day everyone.

  3. Oh wow, they do look exactly the same, and the f21 one is only for a fraction of the price! This post makes me want to try the aqualicious lipsticks! (Hahaha not in the near future tho, I'm on a makeup buying ban X_X)

    I own another f21 color from their other lipstick line (the dark gray tubes) called Wild Cherry that's supposedly a dupe for Mac Russian Red.

  5. They look pretty similar but Hug Me doesn't emphasize your lip lines as much I think...

  6. : 3 For dark lips i suggest lip concealer >w< or like well just normal concealer preferably liquid. owo it makes sheer colors come out lovely!

    And yea lol they look similar. oAo though telling from the swatch the F21 lipstick is cuter owo

  12. yay for sharing this wonderful discovery donnarence! :D i think fashion 21 is more suitable for ladies with pigmented lips since it does look more opaque. ;)

  13. Hi, hindi ba sya drying? :( I find local brands to be really drying that's why I mainly use Korean brands because of the moisture/collagen.

    I have Everbilena lipsticks but I haven't yet tried F21 products yet. I stuck to NYX until now, since it's so creamy.

  14. okay naman siya... creamy siya... mas drying yung ever bilena matte lipstick para sa akin.. :D

  23. Another VERY close dupe for Mac Hug me is Australis Inject Mineral Lipstick in Macarena (Australis is a brand in some larger dpt stores in Australia and New Zealand). The Australis is just a bit more pigmented, cheaper and a lot more moisturizing!
