This £2 Primark Lipstick Is Being Compared To MAC's Velvet Teddy

We all love a good dupe for a high-end beauty product that looks and feels no different to its more expensive counterpart.

Finding a decent dupe can be a quite difficult task though, but this social media user has found one that is quite possibly the best bargain ever.

Twitter user Becca McGoningle shared a lipstick from Primark, which she is comparing to a MAC Cosmetics Velvet Teddy lippy.

Primark's no.74 is not only an exact match in colour according to Becca, but it also apparently lasts a lot longer and is £15.50 cheaper than MAC - £15.50, that's quite a significant saving if you ask us.

Sharing the find with her Twitter followers, Becca posted: "Any velvet teddy wearers, 'golden rose' lipsticks from primark number 74 is actual the exact same n lasts longer n is like £2 get involved rt x [sic]."

Her post went viral, (well with a steal like that we're not surprised) and people were rushing to their local Primark to update their makeup bags.

One person said: "Only £2?! Imma get me some of that."

Another person exclaimed: "this has changed my life !!!!"

A third said: "Life changer."

If you're not familiar with the Velvet Teddy lipstick, it's a classic, matte deep-tone beige, perfect for your everyday make-up look.

It's a nice lippy for the no-makeup look when applied lightly but when applied with a heavier hand it comes out more intense.


But £17.50 vs £2 is a no brainer ,so we're off to Primark to stock up on two (or 10) of this fabulous dupe.
