MAC Angel Lipstick / Revlon Pink Pout Matte Lipstick – Dupes?

Posted by Lipglossiping On December - 15 - 2009

I was eavesdropping on Twitter (as you do) and overheardread VexintheCity tell Cosmetic-Candy that Revlon Pink Pout was a reasonable dupe for MAC Angel.

“No it isn’t!” thinks I… “They’re completely different!”

So off I rush immediately to test out this theory! (as you do)

I’m serving up my humble pie at this point….

They are simillar aren’t they?

So I swatch…

*sigh* I don’t like being wrong…

Dupe Alert!

but then… I apply…

L-R: Pink Pout, Angel

Woah there Nelly!  Pink Pout is… well… pink.  MAC Angel is distinctly beige-toned on my lips.

How on earth?

So there ya go.  Revlon’s Pink Pout is a definite dupe for MAC Angel (albeit a matte one) on everybody in the entire universe…

…except for me.

Now, what I want is a Revlon Pink Pout dupe that isn’t a moisture sucking matte… um… don’t say MAC Angel 😉

    I read somewhere that a matte lipstick underneath a bold color will help the bold color to stay (this was apparently a Gwen Stefani trick :D)… so I might just pick up Pink Pout for this.

    oo they are very similar, i think i would prefer angel however just because my lips do get dry easily. thank you for the compairison

    Bourjois So Delicate Lip Cream has a shade similar to the Revlon one, and it is lovely on. I have a review/pics on my blog if you wanna check it out. 😉 xx

    I can contribute one other major difference between these two! It might just be because I have a weird skin chemistry, but for some reason, Revlon (and CoverGirl, but that’s nothing to do with this…) lipsticks change colour on me throughout the day. On me, Pink Pout starts off really pretty and sort of mod looking, but by the end of the day, it’s practically hot pink! Angel, on the other hand, stays true to its colour all day, no matter how many times I have to reapply. Also, I seem to be the only person in the world on whom Angel wears as a deep pink… I wish it looked paler on me, the way it does on you.

    Oh, quite a difference isn’t there! I think pink pout looks better on your skintone, but angel would look better on me (although i’d like a mix of the 2, if there is one out there!). I’ve heard a lot of hype about MAC’s Brave lipstick, is that similar?

  6. Charlene says:

    *sighs* now if only pink pout would dare to look like that on me!! It’s such a crazy cool pink yet lavender shade on my NC42 shade skin lol. However, i think the Prive lipstick from the MAC Baroque Boudoir collection…is my wearable pink pout, it is sooo perfect i love it! A really nice baby pink on me! Maybe you could try that? It’s really creamy too…and since you’ve been wanting to get some Mac again… :)

  7. Great post! Both are good product but I only prefer the Revlon. Its shades have no comparison with others.

  8. Sabine says:

    I think that the Maybelline moisture lipstick in Born with it is kinda close.
    For Pink Pout is way more pink on my lips

    try MAC Snob
    i first heard of pink pout as a dupe of Snob not Angel
