Benefit dupe, finally!


A few years ago my mum bought the Benefit silky-finish lipstick 'Rocket Pop'.  It's a great colour on me (I am cool-toned, blue-eyed, fair-haired), as well as on my red-head mother and my olive-skinned sister.  Somehow it is that perfect colour that suits just about everyone I'm guessing.  I love the colour but the finish isn't great.  It's very sheer and shiny and just does not stay on my lips.  I have been looking for a good dupe for it for a long time.
Usually avoiding Superdrug like the plague (for some reason I have always chosen Boots instead), I went with a friend the other day.  I thought it would be a good time to check out the MUA stand as I'd seen it in a few make-up blogs and vlogs.  It's been many a year since I've bought cheap cheap make-up so it was kind of a revelation.  I couldn't get over just how much I could buy for so little!  I bought a couple of their lip colours at random (#11 and #14) and what-do-ya-know, #14 is almost an exact colour match for Rocket Pop.  Yippee! It is not as shiny but stays on my lips a lot longer.  It is still quite sheer though so I now want to find a lip liner to match.  The search continues...
N.B. MUA lipsticks are £1 each, Benefit lipsticks are £14.  Bargain.
