MAC Yung Rapunxel Lipstick Plus a Less Expensive DUPE

I was excited to purchase this new dark lipstick from MAC Cosmetics when it launched on September 5, 2012.
When applied, this is patchy. You can build it up.
I would suggest using a lip brush. I did not use a liner for this look.

Base - L'Oreal Hip Blendable Blushing Cream ELATED
Set - NARS Powder Blush CRAZED

MAC's website says:
"Coming from the 212, rap ingĂ©nue Azealia Banks collaborates with M∙A∙C on Yung Rapunxel - a limited-edition Lipstick in a deep, rich shade of plum with an amplified finish."

This is currently sold out online. MAC may replenish stock soon, like they did with the
Candy Yum-Yum lipstick in August.

Of course, I knew I already owned a less expensive dupe. I perused the stash and voila!
NK Amethyst is a dead on dupe.
It retails for $1 US.
It can be purchased from beauty supply stores.

Lips Of The Day (LOTD) featuring NARS Honolulu Honey Satin Lipstick

Everyone who regularly reads this blog knows that I love a good bargain.
It takes me sometimes a year to invest in more pricey higher end makeup products.
I usually invest in such items when I have received a free gift card or some other discount.

At $24 this was a hard pill to swallow, however,
I was in search of a complimentary
peachy nude lipstick with staying power and this seemed to fit the bill.
Yes, I waited an entire year before I bought it.
I must say it is one of my favorite nude lipsticks.

Do you own this lipstick?
What is your favorite shade of peachy nude?
