Dupe That: Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Crème in Slow Burn

*affiliate links in post*
One of the biggest questions that I get asked all the time is if I know of a dupe for a high-end product, especially lipsticks. Being the lover of drugstore lipsticks that I am, I have come upon quite a few dupes and realized it would make a great series for this blog. Some of the dupes I share will only be similar in shade, but I will try my best to find dupes that are also similar in formula whenever possible. Either way, having an affordable dupe for a more expensive product is always great and I hope this series can help you get a better deal or find a similar product to one you already love!
I'm going to start with a product that is hot, hot, hot and brand spanking new - the Marc Jacobs Le Marc Liquid Lip Crème in Slow Burn. These Le Marc Liquid Lip Crèmes are $28 a pop, not super expensive, but by no means what I would call "affordable" either. The shade Slow Burn is a mauvey pink that happens to be a shade that I always gravitate to, meaning I have several shades in this family already. I knew I would be able to find another dupe/s for it easy enough within my collection. 
In my stash I found two lipsticks that are pretty spot on shade wise, and one that is close.  

Wet n Wild Liquid Cat Suit in Rebel Rose $5.99
Mac lipstick in Brave $17.00
Mac lipstick in Mehr $17.00
The Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Crème in Slow Burn has a cream finish that is very comfortable. From the dupes I found, none has the same formula. 

  • Wet n Wild Liquid Cat Suit in Rebel Rose: matte, dry finish. This is a traditional liquid lipstick, though one of the most comfortable I have ever worn. 
  • Mac lipstick in Brave: satin formula, very comfortable. This is probably the closest in formula but it's the furthest in shade likeness. 
  • Mac lipstick in Mehr: matte finish. I love this matte formula a lot. It's matte while still being a bit creamy, but it's not as creamy as the Le Marc Lip Creme. 

I personally love different formulas of lipstick. So for me, having the same shade in different finishes is good, because I can wear the shade that I love, with the finish that I need depending on the day. This warm mauve shade is one of my favorites and I can't get enough of buying any lipstick I find in this color. There's a few more on my list, like: NARS Ana and a Tom Ford one I saw online the other day. Those are even more expensive though and will be slow in coming to my collection, if they ever actually do. 
Will you be buying any of these gorgeous mauvey lippies?
