Gem of Roses, from the Semi-Precious collection released by MAC this last summer, is probably my favorite lipstick of all time. It's the perfect My Lips But Better color for me. The other day at Ulta I spotted what I thought could be a possible dupe, and lucky I had Gem of Roses in my purse to compare! On the left is Gem of Roses, and on the right is Smashbox's Be Legendary lipstick in Primrose.
Houston, we have a dupe! :D I no longer have to fear the suffering I would surely endure once I ran out of Gem of Roses!
I hope this helps anyone else hunting for a Gem of Roses dupe. Smashbox Be Legendary lipsticks cost $19 at Sephora and Ulta.
