MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme Dupes & Comparisons

MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme Dupes
Go For It vs. Goes and Goes

The Dupe List:  MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme

Here are some dupes and swatch comparisons of several Lipcreme shades!

  • Go For It vs. Goes and Goes: Ding, ding! Goes and Goes is a more opaque version of Go For It (from In the Groove). I would have also swatched Up the Amp next to it, but I don’t own it (or I’ve lost it, either way, it’s MIA).
  • Overtime vs. Angel: Similar, like very competitive sisters. Overtime is clearly a yellow-based pink when compared to Angel, which is a cooler pink (but I’d describe as a neutral pink overall).
  • Chatterbox vs. Unlimited Sisters but not twins–Chatterbox is a touch brighter and pinker, while Unlimited almost looks like it has a touch of plum in it when swatched next to Chatterbox. The finish/consistency are nearly the same, though.
  • Morange vs. Good to Go vs. Neon Orange: WINNER! WINNER IN THE ORANGE DRESS! Even with my overly critical eye, I find it pretty difficult to tell the difference between the three of these. Morange looks to be just a touch lighter than the other two, perhaps.
  • Queen’s Sin vs. Perpetual Flame: Not so dupe-tastic. Queen’s Sin is redder and darker (and obviously has a frosty finish).
  • Dubonnet vs. Extended Play: If you have one, you don’t need the other. They’re virtually identical.
  • Extended Play vs. Russian Red vs. Brave Red vs. Prolong: Russian Red is way too bright to be similar to Extended Play, and it’s not quite as pinky as Prolong (which may be closer to Ruby Woo, though not as red). Brave Red is a slightly sheerer, glossier version of Extended Play, though.

Thank you – you’ve saved me some money. I was going to get Extended Play, but realise I already have Dubonnet in a set. I can knock one off of my ‘wants’ list.

Hey. Nice pictures. 🙂
May I use one of those photos on my blog since I don’t have any of those lipsticks? I’d like to write about how happy I am I didn’t buy “Dubonnet” since it looks like “Extended Play”, which I am going to buy soon. 😀

Christine, is Russian Red very dry? I really like the color but I find the matte dryness is uncomfortable. I wanted to buy a bright red lipstick (like Ruby Woo) – do you suggest any color? I’m a NC40 🙂 Thanks a lot!!

I was going to buy overtime too but i already have angel. It seems like the last two collections (Fabulous Felines) are dupes or very similiar to other mac products.i’m saving money but disapointed at the same time.

Thank you for doing this, Christine! I always get dupes and then wonder “hmmm…this shade looks familiar..” or I think “I wonder whether I should wear this lip color with the purple blouse or this one that is slightly bluer?” after I’ve bought it! :Z

I’d love to take a tour of one of the manufacturing plants where they mix the proportion of colors together, but they probably don’t allow Ben & Jerry’s type public tours 🙁 BTW, I now have my mom hooked on your site, too 😀

Christine, go for it looks interesting, I love purple but idk how to wear it. How would you wear a purple lipstick or make it wearable, Christine?

Nora Avatar

Thank you for the dupes…I can’t believe the orange lipsticks are so similar!

Are you going to review the foundation and concealer from the Pro Longwear collection?

Heather Avatar

Thanks for this! I actually love Neon Orange and Morange, but I don’t like that I can’t wear them without a lipliner. I can wear this new formula without a liner, so I’ll have to pick up Good to Go!

Thanks girl for these! I suspected Goes and Goes and Go For it were dupes, except more opaque.

I’m actually super excited that they’re releasing Goes and Goes because i have Go For it, and I always say how I wish it was more opaque. now I can get one that is! Are these lipcremes going to be part of the permanent line or are they just limited edition?

Wow, Go for It & Goes and Goes look exactly the same and so do Morange, Good to Go & Neon Orange. It’s a little strange to have 3 lipsticks that are the exact same shade, even though they’re different formulas. The red shades look like exact dupes, as well. Good thing I wasn’t interested in any of those, though Unlimited looks really pretty.

I went to the store to try them on… and was eye-ing on several of them, especially the purple one. I ended up not buying any one of them because i wasn’t too impressed. I’m also not too impressed with the formula/pigmentation for some reason. I think I’ll stick with my amplified cremes and cremesheens.

thanks a lot Christine … you are very helpful as always … now i know which ones not to buy … i was eyeing unlimited but i have chatterbox already and they are really similar indeed … i can save money this time … i’ll just get overtime since i don’t have angel yet … do you think it will not wash me out? pale pinks usually don’t look good on me especially lazy day.

Hi Christine! I was wondering, are you going to do a review on the Pro longwear concealers? For the concealer, do the shades run lighter or darker than the usual MAC shades?

Hi Christine love this so much! ü How about for Love Forever and Faithfully Yours, would you have sample comparison photos? Hope to hear from you, thanks! =)
