Dupe? Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Rose Matter Vs. Rimmel Stay Matte in Pink Bliss

And here we are sailing right on through to August. I'm in complete denial. As much as I love fall (it's the best season, end of discussion) I find myself clinging to summer. Maybe because it flew by?

So how's life? I plan on doing a huge post next week on this, but I am feeling much better, perhaps the best I've felt all year. I have been getting back into the swing of things, but just haven't been able to post as much as I want. But I always have time for beauty dupes!

Most of my dupes are from me looking through my collection. Some are suggestions. But today is a happy accident. I love when that happens. I am comparing two matte liquid lipsticks to see if I've got a dupe: Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick vs. Rimmel Stay Matte.

I really love this color--a neutral coral is how it's been described. It's an easy shade to wear for me. But one is $18 and one is $5. Let's see if we have a dupe here!


.19 oz

Root Beer float scent


.21 oz

Synthetic candy scent, kind of like Kylie Lip Kits

Now let's get into swatches:

Jeffree Star is on top, Rimmel is under it, and then there is a half swatch of each next to each other.

Lip swatch--half on my lip (top and bottom) on your left is Pink Bliss. Half on my lips (top and bottom) of your right is Rose Matter.

It's really hard to tell, isn't it? I will say that the Rimmel is patchy and required more product and came off a bit easier. Both lasted the same on average. Sometimes JS would wear longer. And JS was harder to get off my lips at the end of the day. I'd call these a dupe, so at the end of the day, it depends on ingredients preference and cost.

Would you call this a dupe?


  1. These two products are completely identical! I cannot believe how much alike they are! Great dupe!

  2. Thanks for comparing these two. I love the color!


  3. Wow, the color is definitely a dupe! Such a pretty shade!

  4. That is such a pretty shade and definitely a dupe! I can't tell the difference!

  5. Such a pretty coral color! The more affordable options do tend to be more patchy, but I just re-apply. So glad to hear things are going so well, and can't wait to see your exciting next steps <3

  6. Yes, I'd call this a dupe!

    Glad you're feeling better xx


  7. Definitely a dupe! The color is a perfect match.


  8. They look identical when swatched together and on your lips! I love this shade, and have always wanted one of JS's liquid lipsticks, but the Rimmel one is so much more affordable.
    It's also nice to hear that you are feeling better Elle!

  9. Wow, that is a great dupe! I've never tried the JS products but have almost purchased this shade on multiple occasions. I'll have to definitely look for the Rimmel one!

  10. I think the root beer scent would make me nauseous! both look great on tho! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  11. I always cling to summer!! It goes by way too fast. loving this lip stick shade on you Elle.

  12. Looks like a dupe to me! I am so happy you are in a good place! Fall is certainly the best but yes, slow down summer!

  13. I cant tell any difference on you, so I would call that a dupe for sure! I love Rimmell lip products. They are one of my favorite drugstore brands. Maybe have to try this one.

  14. I'm so glad to hear you're feeling better Elle! Looking forward to your update! Visually the Rimmel totally looks like a dupe.

  15. This is a great dupe! I never tried JS products, but I love Rimmel!

  16. I certainly couldn't tell the difference in the two. I love the JS formula. I haven't tried the Rimmel ones yet.

  17. Definitely a dupe! On the separate swatch, it does look a bit different, but next to each other or on, I couldn't tell the difference!

  18. It's amazing that you really have 2 different colors on your lips there, Elle!! I could never tell the difference, and it goes to show that sometimes you can get a deal!

  19. I think it's a great dupe even though there are some quality issues with Rimmel.

  20. This is definitely a very close enough dupe!

  21. I would definitely call these a dupe and think both shades look really similar. Sometimes you get what you pay for with formula but in this case I definitely think I would go for the cheaper option :) x

  22. I like Riimmel London, so I liked this lipstick :) You are right, it was hard to ell the difference on the lips - the swatches I could see juuust a bit, but so difficult :) Same color for me :) But if Rimmel is easier to take off, I would prefer it to JS :)

  23. This definitely looks like a dupe! Glad you're feeling better!

  24. I can barely tell a difference on your swatches and can't see any difference on your lips! Looks like a good dupe!

  25. WOW this is such a close dupe! I barely see a difference when they are next to each other.

  26. I am a fan of Rimmel anyway so I really like this dupe. The colour is very pretty as well. Autumn is m favourite season but yes, I agree, summer seems to have goine by really swiftly this season. xx/Madison

  27. I don’t even want to talk about fall right now Elle! It depresses me to even think about it. I do love fall, but it just came way too fast.

  28. Rimmel does have some great products out there. Nice dupe. Time sure does fly!


  29. July completely flew by and August is flying by as well. Great dupe here.

  30. Good dupe hun and yes winter is flying here too on my side...looking forward to spring :)


  31. Yeah, I really can't tell the difference - I think I'd go for the cheaper option for sure. :)

    I'm glad that you're doing well! It's crazy to me that August is halfway over, but I do LOVE fall and October (favorite month) so I'm ready!


  32. I could call this a dupe but a good one the color is really pretty

  33. I would definitely say it's enough of a dupe!
