Ok now onto the post! I went into my local salon/cosmetic store to just browse their small selection of NYX products. They have a pretty large selection of lip glosses so being a lippie fanatic I had to just go and look. When I was browsing a bright hot pink color caught my eye and grabbed it and thought to myself "wow this really looks like my MAC True Babe lipglass." True Babe is from the Riveting collection and is one of my favorite lipglasses because of the opaque hot pink color. I wear it alone with nothing else on my lips. Being that I love the color so much and that it was possible for me to get a much cheaper version of the exact shade, I brought it home to compare.
Here I present to go NYX's Goddess of the Night in Dolly Pink. Dolly Pink looks a little more purple in the tube but when I swatched it, the colors seemed identical on my hand. Both are a bright pink with blue undertones. So it won't make your teeth look yellow! Yay! =D
The NYX gloss is just as opaque and just as loud and fun as True Babe. I wanted to let you guys know about this great find for a few different reasons. One, it's much cheaper than the MAC lipglass. I only paid $3.99 for this which is a fraction of $14.00 I paid for the lipglass. NYX also supplies much more product than MAC does. Dolly Pink is 0.53fl oz while True Babe is a meager 0.17fl oz. I'm sure you all can tell by the picture just how much more product your getting with the NYX too haha. This is also great because if you want to try a loud color but don't want to shell out the dough, you can experiment with the NYX instead.
I will say the texture and consistency of the NYX gloss I like a bit more. It's not as sticky and has just the same amount of staying power as the MAC. Some people may not like the scent of the NYX, it smells like a cherry tootsie pop or a bit like cherry medicine. I have no problem with it. MAC of course as you all know has the traditional vanilla scent, which I do love. On my lips, Dolly Pink is a tad more pigmented that True Babe, but I think if I put an extra coat on, the color would be identical. So girls, go out and try this bad boy!
Here are the lip swatches of both:
I used my old swatch from a previous post =)
