Seeing as how brown lipsticks are trending right now, I thought I would introduce one of my new favorite lip colors – and compare it to it’s NYX dupe. Most MAC lipliners seem to have a similar color in the NYX line of lipliners, and after doing some research, word on the street is that the NYX liner in ‘Natural’ is a dupe for MAC’s ‘Stripdown’.

Choose a MAC Stripdown lipstick in rich, saturated color in your favorite shade and finish. Choose from matte, cremesheen, satin, frost or amplified. Choose MAC Stripdown and celebrate the beauty of nude lips. It is a sophisticated look that works for all ages and enhances both dramatic makeup or barely-there applications.

Personally, I don’t think these two liners are that close in color. Toast titanium pro mac. ‘Natural’ is described as a deep-toned beige, while MAC describes ‘Stripdown’ as a creamy brown-beige.

As you’ll see from the above swatch, “Natural” definitely has more warm pink undertones, while ‘Stripdown’ is much more of a browny-beige. Both liners have great pigmentation and a similar creamy texture, making them both easy to apply.

As I’ve said in prior MAC/NYX dupe posts, the biggest difference between them is the price point. MAC lipliners run for $16, while NYX lipliners are only $3.50.
