Hello! My name is Jules, and I consider myself to be a Makeup Enthusiast. I am not a professional by any means, but makeup is definitely my hobby. I enjoy a blend of mainstream and indie makeup, and I love comparing and contrasting the two, especially to find color dupes.

Today I wanted to work with one of the Life’s Entropy Cosmos lipsticks,  a product that was highly coveted, and limited edition. I only snagged samples of most of the collection, but I’m happy that I did! Although there were some complaints about the product (sweating, for the most part)  I was really pleased. I find the formula to be comfortable to wear, and non-drying.

When swatching these, I wanted to see if I had any similar colors in my collection, and I thought that Blackbody would be a close color match for Cyber, a permanent shade in MAC’s lipstick line.

The following swatches were done over bare skin, under a daylight bulb, with flash.

From the swatches, it looks like Blackbody has more of a brighter red tone to it. Cyber can be worn in a light layer as shown here, or be layered to become a more deeper plum, where it would have less of a red tone, and lose its closeness to Blackbody. In terms of finish, Cyber is more of a matte/satin finish, while Blackbody has more shine to it. Cyber also has a drier texture than Blackbody, and to me, is less comfortable to wear. (However, I wear all products with a lip primer!)

I know the Cosmos lipstick line was supposed to be a line of dupes for some of the shades in the NARS Audacious line, so before you come running to me telling me the obvious dupe for Blackbody, I wanted to see what else might be close! (Also, cheaper!)

If you liked this post, you can find me over at The Brauhaus! Thanks for reading!

Nom nom nom. My MAC box arrived today while we were at the grocery store! I was surprised to find four cute little buttons when I opened it. :d I couldn’t wait to take photos, swatch it and put it on. It’s SO pretty and bright and pink. <3 I love matte lipsticks, and I love that Candy Yum-Yum is bright as sin AND matte. I did get a backhanded compliment today. I had to run back to the grocery store because I forgot to pick my mom up two of the things on my list that I forgot about. -.- While checking out the old lady at the register says “Wow your lipstick is bright. I never thought a color like that could look good on someone.” Uh, thanks, I think? haha Candy Yum-Yum also seems to have a purple tint on my lips.
