I catch myself falling in love with certain shades all the time and then I realize that um, I have 7 versions of it, maybe in different finishes or whatever, but you know…. they’re the same product. Here’s a perfect example: NARS Semi-Matte Lipstick in Schiap ($24 @ Sephora), right next to one of my favorites of 2011, Urban Decay Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color in Crush ($19 @ Sephora). 

If I were to really examine them, I’d say Schiap is a teeny, tiny bit darker. It’s also matte, but I usually wear a gloss over it because if I don’t it’ll settle into my lip lines and look strange — it’s not a generous formula, one of the driest I’ve ever tried and I was considering returning it. But mattes are usually dry, and I can’t not love the color. I prefer Crush more, it goes on very smoothly and is more hydrating, and lasts much, much longer. I don’t have to reapply it throughout the day, it fades much nicer. Schiap needs to be re-applied after a cup of tea. It just kind of disappears, no stain, just….. evaporates. 

I personally prefer Crush. What about you? Do you have another dupe of this shade? Which do you prefer?
