Ok guys I'm starting a new little 'series' on my blog called Glamorously Savvy. I want to show you guys my finds for less expensive alternatives to the more expensive lines of makeup and beauty products. I know not everyone can always afford (or even want to pay) a $14.00 lipstick from MAC, but there are less expensive dupes (duplicates) out there most of the time. So today I am showing MAC Up the Amp and Rimmel Heavenly. Up the Amp is a beautiful lavender violet color that I think is very pretty especially for spring. So for you dolls that have been eyeing MAC's Up the Amp, I've found you a fabulous savvy dupe from Rimmel called Heavenly.
MAC Up the Amp $14.00 vs. Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick Heavenly $5.49 (prices taken from MAC & Drugstore.com)
As you can see Rimmel does not look as creamy and thick as Up the Amp and more sheer. But it goes on just the same as Up the Amp and it is a very buildable color. As you can see from the lip swatches it looks just alike and this was taken in natural daylight.
I think that this is a great dupe and I hope that this helped someone that may have wanted Up the Amp =]
