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!)
