My favourite €7 lipstick is also a fantastic dupe for MAC's 'Velvet Teddy'

There is nothing we love more than a good dupe.

Especially when it's getting incredibly close to payday and you just can't be forking out the big bucks for a lipstick that you'll ultimately end up leaving on the bar counter of Coppers at 3am. We've all been there, it is grim.

So, to save yourself that next day fear and you're bank account a whole lot of cash, I have a beauty secret to share with you all. If you, like me, are a fan of MAC's Velvet Teddy lipstick, one of their best-selling products, then get excited as I've found an incredible dupe that I literally wear 24/7.

Yep, Flormar's Silk Matte Liquid Lipstick in shade 10 (Tender Terra) is my go-to-girl!

Not only is the shine fab, the colour is incredible with hues of both pink and brown and lastly, it is long-lasting meaning you don't need to constantly re-apply. The dream.

I also always fear wearing matte lipsticks due to the fact that they stick, get chippy and then crumble (Kylie Lip Kit, I'm looking at you), but this one fades evenly and I am obsessed with it.

I often get asked the lipstick I'm wearing when I do wear it and everyone's always surprised to know it's actually cheap as chips costing just €6.95 and from Flormar.

Flormar cosmetics can be purchased at most pharmacies and in Penneys' stores where they have a cosmetics stand. I always get mine at Penneys Mary Street, Dublin 1. You can also purchase it online here.

It truly is my new fave, good on the lips and easy on the pocket, the dream.
