L to R Collection Scorned. MAC Cyber.Now, perhaps this post is ill timed given that it's summer but it's not too long until Autumn-Winter, so it might come in handy. So, I was browsing the make up aisle in ASDA whilst my dad bought milk or whatever, wasn't really concerned with that, when I noticed Collection Scorned. It's a very dark, deep purple and it instantly made me think of MAC Cyber. Since it was only £2.98 I wanted to see how similar they actually were so I bought it and brought it home to test. They are the exact same, except one saves you £12. I love that Collection have experimental colours like this, if any of you have been looking to try out Cyber but couldn't bring yourself to pay just in case it didn't work out, definitely but the Collection alternative first.
Admittedly, the cheaper alternative is a little more sheer but it's definitely buildable. The wear time of Cyber, for me, isn't fantastic because I'm constantly having to check on it etc, so I don't really see much difference between the two.
I love Cyber, it's such a statement for all skin tones, especially fair skin, and to have a twin lipstick from such a budget brand that offers the same effect is amazing!
