Recently I picked up the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in Nude in Private (9) which is a beautiful spicy pinky nude which makes it perfect for more medium skin tones! Whilst swatching some nudes on the back of my hand I saw that I had a possible dupe on my hand, and after applying it on the lips and studying it in daylight, I was right. The dupe in question is the L'Oréal Paris Color Riche Collection Privée Lipsticks in Eva (review here).

The L'Oreal lipstick is also a day time appropriate pinky nude shade and the shades are more or less perfect. The only difference between the two shades is the finish, the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine is a very moisturising, almost balm-like, lipstick with quite a glossy finish. It contains no sheen or glitter. The L'Oreal however does not have the hydration that the YSL does, which is perhaps to be expected, but the finish is the tiniest bit frostier in comparison. If it was not for the frost, these lipsticks would be identical.

So if you have been eyeing up the YSL shade and just can't bring yourself to bite that bullet, here is an almost identical shade! Or if you are in the market for a wearable pink-nude then here are two options for you to choose from!

Which finish do you prefer?
