Lipsticks - MAC Saint Germain vs. Maybelline Colorsensational Pink Pop

I've read that the Maybelline Colorsensational lipstick in Pink Pop is a dupe for MAC Saint Germain.  I decided to show a side-by-side comparison of these two lipsticks so that you can see the differences and similarities. I hope you enjoy! I've added my final thoughts at the end.

MAC Saint Germain

Maybelline Colorsensational Pink Pop

 Comparison swatches: (Left to Right- Saint Germain, Pink Pop)

Final Thoughts-
Saint Germain is more opaque and has a shinier finish to it. It's lighter/brighter than Pink Pop. It tends to dry my lips out more than the Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick.

Pink Pop leans more towards a fuchsia color and is slightly darker than Saint Germain. It seems to be less "milky" looking.  Pink Pop doesn't last as long but it also doesn't irritate or dry out my lips.

Saint Germain and Pink Pop are light, blue-toned pinks; I personally think both are gorgeous!  I enjoy these lipsticks a lot (especially when my skin looks sun-kissed but also year-round).

I would't call Pink Pop an exact dupe for Saint Germain. They're similar but certainly not twins :)
