There’s no denying that MAC always satisfies our lipstick lust, especially since the brand offers so many splurge-worthy glossy, matte, and liquid lipstick options we can’t stop squealing about. However, it’s fair game to say that some MAC lipstick shades can cost a pretty penny, which isn’t always doable for all us budget-conscious beauties who are looking to save a buck. So, if discovering fantastic lipstick dupes are totally your thing (high five!), we found affordable matches to some of the most popular MAC shades.

From ‘Rubywoo’ to ‘Pink Pigeon’, below are six amazing MAC lipstick dupes that won’t burn a hole in your wallet. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the accuracy–trust me.
