Posted late because I failed (failed!) to write down what they were potential dupes to, and had to look them up again. I’m really glad I decided to go with dupes, because getting a boatload of StarGazer (and one Barry M) off Ebay was far cheaper than trying all the LC lipsticks in similar colors – and some of them are HORRENDOUS on me (although very pretty on the paper towel when I wiped them off; stupid skin tone!). So I’m glad I only spent like $2.50 per lipstick, as opposed to $16. Much cheaper, especially if I’m probably going to toss (or give away) the ones that look atrocious on me. And the LC colors I was most interested in, are sold out on the site anyway. (Not that I’m inclined to buy LC stuff, since I tend to avoid companies that have any drama associated with them. I’m not weighing in on said drama, I’m just saying it exists, and that tends to scare me off a company in general. There are plenty other places I won’t shop because I’ve “heard stories” – but I’m not mentioning them here because I’m not discussing possible dupes to their products, okay? I talk too much already; no need to clog this post up even more.)
-StarGazer 120 – potential dupe to Cosmopop and/or Great Pink Planet (kind of frosty, and definitely not a dupe to Cosmopop, as it’s definitely light pink; don’t think it’s a dupe to GPP either, since it’s frosty)
-StarGazer 123 – potential dupe to Cosmopop (I would say also not even close to being a dupe for Cosmopop – too pink and too frosty; sorry for the blurry pic, but you get the idea; pretty close to 120, too)
-StarGazer 122 – potential dupe to Countessa Fluorescent (maybe? it’s hard to say since I don’t actually have CF to compare it to in person, but it’s not as obviously wrong as the two supposed Cosmopop dupes above)
-StarGazer 104 – potential dupe to No She Didn’t (um, no, not even close to No She Didn’t; but a very pretty…what is that, turquoise? dark blue with some green? whatever it is, pretty, but not No She Didn’t)
Next step is to *finally* get some OCC Lip Tars and start mixing up dupes per these awesome “recipes”.
