DUPE ALERT | MAC Whirl Lipstick | Part 2

My last dupe post has proven really popular with the release of the MAC Whirl Lipstick. Well guess what, I have another dupe for you. This time, it’s even better!

MAC Whirl Lipstick as I’m sure you’ve seen, is a stunning matte Rosy Brown shade. It’s the perfect shade for those who are hesitant to sport a full-on Brown lip. Not too Brown, yet not too Pink. Whirl is a gorgeous lipstick shade which will suit a lot of skin tones.

With much anticipation from last year, Whirl is still favoured as ever and it’s a real beauty for those who love their Browny-Nude lip colours. Those of you who have access to GOSH Copenhagen will be excited to know we have a very close dupe in our midst!

For those of you who haven’t been acquainted with GOSH before, GOSH is a Danish-based cruelty-free cosmetics company that is exclusive to Superdrug in the UK. Their products are brilliant and their lipsticks in particular are very well-loved in the beauty community, for good reason too!

Recently GOSH released four new shades in addition to their Matte Lipstick collection and there was just one in particular that caught my eye…

It’s the GOSH Velvet Touch Matt Lipstick in 012 Raisin and it definitely dupes the MAC Matte Lipstick in Whirl. As soon as this lipstick graced the GOSH stand in our Superdrug store, I knew it was a dead ringer for MAC’s Whirl Lipstick…

Unlike the other dupe I provided in my first post, this dupe is actually matte! The only difference between MAC’s Whirl and GOSH’s Raisin besides the price difference, is that Raisin is slightly more warm-toned.

GOSH often gets compared to MAC for their lipstick quality and a lot of people are right there. The quality of these are very similar. They both have a creamy matte formula and last quite a long time on the lips. I must say I do find MAC to be a tad more drying than GOSH after a while, nonetheless GOSH is a great alternative to MAC.

So, there you go, the perfect dupe for MAC Whirl Lipstick in my opinion. I know this won’t be available everywhere, but for my UK and Danish beauties, I’m sure you’ll have no problem snatching up this little gem for yourself. The prices of MAC lipsticks are £15.50 whereas GOSH lipsticks are only £6.99. So if you want to get your paws on the famous Whirl Lipstick, save yourself £8.51 and purchase Gosh Velvet Touch Matt Lipstick in Raisin from your local Superdrug store!

What do you think of this MAC dupe? Do you have any MAC lipstick dupes to share?

Take care my loves, :kiss:
