Lipstick Showdown

In one corner we have the limited edition MAC Viva Glam lipstick in Cyndi. In the other, Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Cherry Tart. Let's get ready to RUMBLE....

Ever since the much coveted shade Cyndi started to disappear from MAC shelves after it's limited run in 2010, beauty girls (and boys) began to hoard back ups for their collection and endeavored to find a perfect dupe for this flattering shade. A few months ago I began to hear murmurings that Cherry Tart could be a match, so I decided to put them to the test on my lips!

L to R: MAC Cyndi, Revlon Cherry Tart
Here are the two colors swatched on my arm in natural light and I have to say that immediately upon swatching, I was really impressed with how close these two shades are! Cyndi is slightly warmer than Cherry Tart, and the finish has less shine....but this is the closest match to Cyndi that I can recall seeing.

On the lips, the difference in the warmth of the two shades is slightly more noticeable but I still think this is a great dupe. So, for anyone who is still lamenting the loss of Cyndi, get thee to your nearest drugstore to try out Cherry Tart!
