If you are a regular reader of my blog you may have noticed I am a little bit in love with MAC's lipstick in Morange. It's featured in both of my recent outfit posts and it has a whole post dedicated to it here, it's safe to say I am a little bit obsessed with it so naturally I have been on the hunt for a dupe and I think I've found one, introducing Topshop's Mexican Wave.
I found Mexican Wave recently in the Topshop sale for a bargainous £3. Unfortunately it was part of the Louise Grey collection so I assume they are discontinuing it, but there were loads in store when I visited a few days so I'm sure you can still get it. Also, I believe Topshop will probably re-promote this shade as it is so gorgeous and I have seen similar shades before this one was released. I will be sure to update you if they do bring it out again.
As you may be able to notice from the photos, Mexican Wave is a slightly more pinky/red shade and is not as neon and orange as the Morange, which I barely noticeable on the lips. The formulation of both lipsticks are very similar. They are both creamy to apply but gradually get more matte. Morange is a teeny bit creamier and smoother than Mexican Wave but both apply beautifully. I would say they both last between 1-2 hours on the lips which is standard for me.
They are both very similar so if you want to try Morange but you're a bit weary of the price then this is the perfect lipstick for you, just snap it up quick before it sells out.
Do you have any MAC dupes?
