Makeup Dupe #2

NYX as a brand is pretty affordable, however, currency-to-currency it does cost more here in Malaysia than if one was to purchase it in America. This dupe was totally coincidental. I actually bought this product from a local drugstore after having heard really good things about it from several YouTubers AND also because it was on sale for a really good price! Only after having bought and used it I realised a striking similarity between the two and realised they swatch almost the same.

The product I’m duping is the NYX SMLC (Soft Matte Lip Cream) in London.

The dupe is the Collection Cosmetics Cream Puff Moisturising Lip Cream in Angel Delight.

It just isn’t the product inside, just take a look at the packaging side by side.

It has the same plastic bottle with raised black font and a matte finish applicator handle.

Even the doe foot applicator looks the same!

Below is a swatch side by side. There’s a slight difference in that that the Collection one is a little more pink than the NYX one.

Albeit the slight difference in colour both products feel and look the same on the lips. They even smell similar!

The NYX at Sephora; MYR 30

The Collection (Watsons exclusive); MYR 10.50

I could buy three Collection ones for the price one NYX!!!

    • Owh, it’s not just NYX… Physicians Formula, Wet n Wild, L.A. Girl, all these American brands, are approximately three folds its original price when it is sold here in retail stores. And it’s funny because brands like Essence, Catrice, Collection, Makeup Revolution are fairly cheap here and they come from the EU.
