Topshop Mink Lipstick-A Possible Dupe For Mac's Twig Lipstick

I recently made an order on the Topshop website where I bought a slip dress which is apparently on trend right now and I also bought the Mink lipstick which to me looked like a deep brown shade however when I actually received it I had an interesting thought with a different view.

Not too long ago I did a pretty big Mac haul where I bought around 5 Mac lipsticks (I'm not done yet though, I still have my eye on Mocha, I loved that shade when I last swatched it). Anyway another shade I swatched was Twig, however at the time I didn't  buy it as I wasn't sure it was for me what with having more purple tones running through it than brown tones. So when I swatched the new Topshop lipstick I got I realised that it didn't look that much different to Twig which was a very pleasant surprise! I may even make a claim that it could be a dupe for it, yep very interesting  haha. Twig is a Satin finish whilst Mink to me also looks and feels like a satin finish as it definitely doesn't have a matte look to it at all. You can be the judge for yourselves, I'll attach some swatches and what it looks like on my lips below ( I don't know how long it lasts on the lips yet as I didn't keep it on when I tested it but at least you can see what it looks like).

Please ignore the spots on my face and just look at the lipstick, for some reason I had so many spots at that time haha.

I hope you can clearly see what the shade looks like from those photos. I honestly do think it's a contender for being a dupe for Mac's Twig. Do you agree with me? Let me know in the comments below.

Thanks for reading

  1. The colour of this lipstick is soo nice. I love those mauve undertones. However, not sure about the formula, as I prefer matte finish.

    1. Yeah it is a really nice colour. I agree I do prefer matte usually but I can make an exception if the colour is good enough xx
