MAC Marilyn Monroe Lipstick Love Goddess Dupe?

More than 10 YESES came in when I asked you if the lipstick looked like a dupe of the other lipstick. Previous post here, in case you missed it. A lot of yeses, actually. Some even guessed the lipsticks already! Such smart readers I have...it's like I can't hide anything for long! =D
Okay! The lipsticks are MAC Love Goddess (from Marilyn Monroe Collection. Photos & Swatches here) & Lakmé Enrich Satin #356. 
I went to check out the new shades of Lakmé Enrich Satins, and from the first moment I saw Lakmé Enrich Satin 356, I thought it looked similar to MAC Love Goddess. I had to wait to compare them coz I was in Delhi, and Love Goddess was in Newcastle. When I could finally hold them together, they did not look exactly the same. Lakmé Enrich Satin #356 looked redder. But when I swatched & wore them, it's a different story. They looked almost the same. Ohhh, they're both Satin finish too- I realized this just now, as I'm writing! MAC Satin finish....Lakmé Enrich Satin .....sheesh, what a tube light I am sometimes.
MAC Love Goddess,  Lakmé Enrich Satin #356

I applied MAC Love Goddess on the right side of my lips & Lakmé Enrich Satin #356 on the left. Excuse the lopsidedness =D

After blotting with a tissue....
As you can see, Lakmé Enrich Satin #356 is a little bit darker and has more red in it. But I think they look similar enough.


Price Difference:
  • MAC Love Goddess ~ Rs.1050/ I bought it for Rs.1297 from UK. It was a 'Limited Edition' lipstick.
  • Lakmé Enrich Satin #356 ~ Rs.225. [Lakmé, Y U NO stick to these prices?]


DUPE METER:  I'd say 95% but it could look 99% if applied in a super copycat style.

What do you all think? Btw, did you want MAC Love Goddess and couldn't get it? Comment below with your feedback for more DUPE posts! =)

  13. Oh my!!! that is such an awesome dupe!!!!! you are too good at this. yaaay for us :)

  14. OMG I love this. Again, I reiterate, Lakme should really change its packaging. I mean their new collection has some nice bright youthful colours but they're hidden behind this dull drab packaging. Worst packaging ever. I wanna buy MAC Marilyn Monroe lipsticks JUST for the packaging, if nothing else. :D
    Cynthia, will you please do some more Dupe Posts? Especially dupes for MAC lipsticks, I've been dying to own one, but they're so darn expensive! I would love it if you could tell me about dupes for the coveted MACs like Ruby Woo, Russian Red, Vegas Volt, Ronnie Red.. you get it. :D (I know you've said Bourjois Rouge Soyeux lipliner's a dupe for Ruby Woo but can you find a lipstick too?)
    Much much appreciated,
    Ashwini :)

  28. I finally got #356 and #149 after reading your posts and they are womderful.. Also got #145 which is very close to MAC cosmo but I really cant compare the two since I dont have Cosmo.. I am sure the MAC MUA's will throw me out if I go in with Lakme and compare!
    This is the first time that I have bought three Lakme shades at one go and love all of them.. two are thanks to you!

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
