Makeup: MAC Dupe for Blankety Lipstick

One of my favourite nude lipsticks is MAC's Blankety Lipstick. It is a creamy, matte-like nude coloured lipstick worn by the likes of Kim Kardashian. Sold for $36 in Australia - it isn't cheap.

The best dupe for Blankety is Australis' Colour Inject lipstick in Mambo at a bargain $12.95. It has the same creamy texture even find that it is actually less drying on my lips than the MAC counterpart with apparently infusted vitamins, minerals and antioxidants such as Vitamic C, Viramin E, Jojoba oil, Omega 6 and Avocado oil.

It claims to use Kakadu Plum which they describe as the world's highest known source of Vitamin C which naturally stimulates collagen formation.  I am certainly not sure how much collagen formation was being stimulated on my lips while wearing the lipstick but it does feel nourishing. It is hard to believe that anything other than a lip balm, or lip treatment worn overnight or for extended periods would have much an effect on collagen production but I guess that is not the reason I buy a lipstick.

The colour payoff is terrific and gives a gorgeous sexy-nude pout. So if you don't want to fork out the extra $23.05 to buy the MAC version this would be your best bet for getting the same look. Either one will give you the perfect pinky nude colour for light to olive skin tones. Enjoy!
