Close Dupe Alert - Ruby Kisses Velvet Red (RLS39) = MAC Violetta?

Ruby Kisses Lipstick may be found at your local beauty supply store.

Velvet Red (RLS39) is a little more red than Violetta.
It may be a closer dupe to MAC Pervette.

Left Ruby Kisses Velvet Red (RLS39)

Right MAC Violetta

The redness of the Velvet Red may be compensated for by using a blue based plum liner.

$1 vs. $14.50

Of course it is always important to remember that texture and wear time may be less when using less expensive products. I find the textures and wear time to be quite similiar.
The Ruby Kisses is smooth, creamy and very moisturizing.
Wear time = about 3 hours.  If you don't mind reapplying, go for it.

What do you think?


  1. lol we love dupes dont we hehe I just dont like re applying every 3-4hrs though but thanx for sharing will have thoughts about this

  2. Thanks for commenting Sharon! :O) LOL
    I have to touch up my MAC Show Orchid every 3 hrs for the same intensity. I didn't really test the Violetta yet b/c I was eating & drinking etc. But When I do, I'll def let you know how long it wears.

  3. Thanks for sharing, I would love to see your Ruby Kisses lipstick collection.

  6. Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment Christine. :O)

    Only tips I can offer are...
    1. take your time
    2. practice, practice, practice
    3. don't use the glue that came w/the lashes plz!
    only duo or lashgrip brands work for me.
    4. also, i was trying to glue the lashes to my lid instead of to my actual lashes LOL
    5. it is helpful to use mascara 1st so the glue is not going directly on your bare lashes.

  7. Thank you so much for your advice, i will absolutely give the false lashes a try. But i think im buying the duo eyelash glue, heard that is the best glue to use :)

    xoxo Christine
