I recently realised that I have a very bad habbit of buying lipsticks in colour's I already own. However to make the most of this I have decided to start a 'series' where I explore my collection and show you some of the dupes I own for some of my slightly higher end lipsticks. 
 YSL Rouge Volupte Perle, Sparkling Fuschia (114)-£23.50

So today I have some dupes for the YSL Rouge Volupte Perle in the colour Sparkling Fuschia (114). I absolutely love this lippy, it goes on so smooth, is a lovely colour and has decent staying power. However I'm not such a fan of the price tag... £23.50. So here are a couple of cheaper alternatives

The first dupe for this is the Bourjois Shine Edition lipstick in no. 22. This is really nice and moisturising and beside the fact it hasnt got a shimmer to it, its a perfect dupe for the YSL. Its also only £7.99 so alot cheaper! The whole shine edition range from Bourjois is lovely, and if you're in the market for a new lippy (or two) I suggest you go check them out!

The second dupe I have is MAC's 'Lickable'. Its slightly more expensive at £15 but is still a very good colour match to the YSL lippy, the only slight differences are a lack of shimmer and that the shade is ever so slightly darker.. This is a cremesheen finish so is very moisturising and fairly pigmented. Again like the YSL it has a good staying power but has a slightly sheerer finish.
