Dupe – Revlon Snow Peach

Sometime last year Revlon released something called ‘The Legacy Collection’, a set of five iconic lipsticks in the super lustrous formula. This collection never made it to France AFAIK (at least I never saw it) and I wanted Snow Peach so badly I resorted to evilbay. I paid what I would have paid in retail if the lipsticks were available in France, so it wasn’t so bad. Anyway!

This post is for those who missed this collection or need a replacement or just looking for a dupe. And I like dupes when they are from a similar tier (or lower), because it’s just not as fun to buy a LE MAC lippie dupe when said dupe is a Guerlain Rouge G.

The dupe I found for Snow Peach is Bourjois Rouge Edition in ‘Fraise Remix’. These usually go for 12.99 euros each in France. Sephora (France) is currently having a promotion on all Bourjois lip products (-30%) until 15th March.

Here are the swatches, different lighting:

As above; added another stroke of colour to make the lines more even

The finish of the lipsticks is similar. The Bourjois Rouge Edition is more emollient and hence is a teeny bit shinier than the Revlon Super Lustrous formula. ‘Fraise Remix’ is a hair pinker/cooler than ‘Snow Peach’. On the lips however, they look identical – I did a half and half (left lip and right), and the two just melded together and I couldn’t tell them apart.
