I’ve been following Samantha Ravndahl aka @ssssamanthaa on instagram for awhile now so I was pretty eager to scoop up her MACxInfluencer Collab lipstick this April. Especially since I’m obsessed with nude pink lipsticks. Luckily, I’m Canadian so I could grab one of my own as soon as it launched. It’s definitely a huge bummer that only Canadians could pick this up online. Don’t fret though! If you can’t pick one up yourself but you really love the color I’ve figured out some dupes for you.
I think it’s safe to say Samantha killed it with this pink. It’s described as a “light shell pink” and it’s a cremesheen, which is generally my favorite finish for a MAC lipstick as I have perpetually dry lips. If you don’t know already – cremesheens basically feel like a lip balm and have a sheer wash of color. It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for.
I actually went into MAC with my MACxSamanthaRavndahl lipstick in hand and swatched a bunch of lipsticks to find the perfect dupe in store. I found mixing Creme Cup (Cremesheen) and Pure Zen (Cremesheen) made the closest dupe.
Here you can see my swatches below:
As you can see they’re not a perfect match, but pretty dang close.
