It's safe to say MAC Soar is one of my all-time favourite lip pencils (you've probably seen me wearing it in pretty much every outfit post!). But as I was perusing the aisles of Boots I spotted this L'Oréal Lip Liner Couture in Bois de Rose, which bared a striking resemblance to my beloved. And when I got home and swatched them side by side, I was impressed to find they were almost identical!
They're both in the same colour vein; dusky pinkish brown hues with a slight hint of mauve. The only difference is that Soar is a little bit darker than its drugstore counterpart. On the lips, I found the texture to be very similar too; both felt smooth and creamy and glided on effortlessly. I'd say the L'Oréal version was a tiny bit waxier, but barely at all.
And while Soar retails at £12.50, Bois de Rose costs a very purse-friendly £3.99. I'm actually starting to like L'Oréal's offering more, and I'm definitely going to check out the other shades in the range!
Have you discovered any MAC lip pencil dupes? I'd love to hear them!
