MAC Girl About Town L/S Dupe-NYX Eucalyptus

You all know I LOVE MAC Girl About Town L/S and I think I found a DUPE!!! I love finding dupes because it lets you see if the color is even worth buying at a higher cost and WOW! I think these two shades are sooo similar. If you ever wanted to try MAC's Girl About Town, but was afraid to because you thought the color may be to bright for you then try NYX Eucalyptus for around $1-4 (depending on where you buy your NYX from). They are pretty much identical, with the exception that NYX is hair more purple and Girl About Town is little more pink (and applies better, but hey..it's a $14.50 lippie, I would expect it to apply better!!!), but really, they look the same to me!

Great find! Been wanting Girl About Town but didn't want to drop $14.50 on it as I tend to either go light pink and subtle or full on reds and purples. Now I want Eucalyptus... :D

Awesome dupe. I wish they sold that type of NYX lipstick in Canada. We only have this really chunky glittery kind.
