Top: Spice - Bottom: Soar
For the last few months I have been trying to get my hands on MAC Soar lip liner. It’s been on my wishlist for quite some time but it seems to always be sold out online and in stores. I don’t even know how this colour got famous, I’m guessing it had something to do with Kylie Jenner. Everything regarding lip colours always seems to revolve around Kylie at the moment, and who can blame her? Her lips always look amazing. Of course as you’d imagine, I found this when I wasn’t looking. I popped into Debenhams with a friend of mine and spotted the last Soar lip liner at the MAC counter. It was meant to be.
I have been using Soar a ton, it’s the perfect match for most nude lipsticks I own and it’s also really creamy. However, a couple of days ago I was browsing the makeup section in ASDA (as yo do), and found this cheeky lip liner by Rimmel in the shade 011 Spice. It is the perfect match for Soar, a long-lasting pinky brown that adds the most gorgeous colour to the lips. Rimmel Spice is just a tad lighter when swatched, but on the lips you can’t tell them apart. The price difference is huge as you may have figured - £12.50 for MAC and £2.99 for Rimmel. They’re pretty much the same product with different packaging, so if you’re still trying to get your hands on Soar, stop looking, save your pennies and get the Rimmel one instead.
I’m currently coveting Spice lip liner also by MAC, so if any of you know of a dupe available in the UK, let me know.
