Today I will swatch for you one of the most talked about dupes in lipsticks. MAC’s beloved Ruby Woo ($15 and PKR 2,200/) and its very popular dupe Wet N Wild’s megalast lipstick# 911D in Stoplight Red ($3 and PKR 550/). For those who prefer less matte finishes I have also swatched what I found to be a creamier drugstore version of Rubywoo and Stoplight Red, i.e. Artdeco’s Perfect Color Lipstick # 04.


Here’s how they look in the tubes, sorry about the sorry state of WnW’s lipstick, unfortunately the packaging of these lippies isn’t the best and there have been a few times where the product has grazed against the lid.


As can be seen the lipstick on the right i.e. Artdeco 04 is appearing creamy whereas both Rubywoo and 911D are appearing matte. Here is how they swatch like…

L-R: MAC Ruby Woo, WnW Stoplight Red and Artdeco 04 (keeping away from flash).

As you can instantly see that Ruby Woo and Stoplight red are showing a lot of similarity but do note that WnW applies more solid on the arm and that is because of its flat tip.

Here is how Rubywoo and Stoplight red look on my upper and lower lip respectively!

Can you tell the difference??? I can’t.

My verdict: save $12 and go for the drugstore dupe :).
