Teaser: Lipstick Queen Entourage vs MAC Diva — Dupes? Which one’s better?

I didn’t expect that stopping and smelling the roses would result in less frequent posting. I should have foreseen that, though.

The more time I took in appreciating and playing with makeup, the less of a “reviewer” I became.

It’s liberating not to have to monitor how long a lipstick lasts or how a particular product compares to something else. I didn’t realize that looking for minute differences between products causes me unnecessary stress. At the end of the day, the differences are too insignificant to matter.

This brings me to: Diva and Entourage.

In the next 5 days, I plan on wearing MAC Diva on one side and Lipstick Queen Entourage on the other. No more hankering to find out which lipstick is better by watching my lips like a hawk. I’ll just check on how my lips look on either side at the end of the day (or after a meal, right before brushing my teeth), will take note of whatever I see or don’t see, and leave it there. This should be fun.

  2. My guess is that diva is the one on the right arm swatch??

    Can’t wait for the results kahit na it’s more probable that I’d get Diva instead of Entourage haha

    BTW love that it matches with your shirt

    1. Thanks, that was intentional 😛

      Anyway, I really love Entourage BUT I probably won’t be repurchasing anymore. ‘Twas a good experience tho. 😀

    1. I know. If I’m not as in love with lipsticks as I am, I would’ve regretted getting Entourage.

    I’m going to guess that Diva is on the right on your arm and on the left on your lips. It’s so hard to tell, though!

    2. I didn’t have a red like Entourage before. Ack, I should’ve gotten Diva first — 3x cheaper. It’s my favorite shade of red. Blue-toned, not too bright, and not too deep.
