Look for Less: Gold Shimmered Red Lips

Many of you really liked my MAC Marcel Wanders Lip Combo that featured MAC Gesina Lipstick and MAC Mary Lip Gloss. It’s a lovely combo, but it’s DEFINITELY! dupeable. Gold shimmer always looks really stunning layered over a red lipstick.

I used…

  • Rimmel Berry Queen (940) Moisture Renew Lipstick ($5.99)
  • NYX Blonde Pearl Eyeshadow ($7.00) (But any yellow gold eyeshadow will do!)
  • Wet ‘n’ Wild Clear Lipgloss ($1.99)

For $15, I think we get pretty close. I specifically wanted to find the cheapest dupe I could, so I only went through my drugstore products to pull colors. Berry Queen is insanely close to MAC’s Gesina, but it’s a little more pigmented, so it doesn’t end up as pink as Gesina when applied.  I mixed the gold eyeshadow with the gloss and then applied, so it would blend better (if you pat it on, it can be lovely, but it tends to stay where you patted it!).

I’d also recommend trying maybe a dark pink and then patting a sheer layer of blue-based red lipstick on top to get that pinky-red if you don’t have one already in your stash!  If you have naturally red lips, you might opt for a fuchsia lipstick rather than a pink-red.

What do you think?  Close enough?  Better? Worse?

I applied Gesina Lipstick straight from the tube and then patted Mary Lip Gloss on top with a separate lip brush.   I didn’t use any lip liner, but if you find red lipstick is prone to bleeding, you may want to use clear lip liner to prep!

Would you rock this combo?
