Nars Luxembourg Dupe?

A Nars Luxembourg Dupe?

I received this Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Luxembourg as a present at Christmas last year and when I spotted the Bourjois Souffle de Velvet in Plum Plum Pidou I snapped it up as I thought the colour may be a dupe for the Nars. As I knew the formulas are different I did assumed the Plum Plum Pidou would be a more sheer colour, possibly a more wearable version of Luxembourg but unfortunatly I was disappointed...

As you can see from these swatches the colours are very similar. As the Bourjois is more sheer it may seem different but I believe it is just a less concentrated version of the same colour as the Nars, a gorgeous raspberry plummy colour which I love! However this is where the similarities end.

As I mentioned I knew the formulas were different so was expecting a different look from each product but the wear time of the Bourjois Souffle de Velvet was very minimal and it also wore off in a very strange, patchy way.

So even though the colours of these two products may be very similar it really isn't a dupe as the formula of the Bourjois is not only different but awful compared to the Nars. On the other hand, the Nars Satin Lip Pencil applies with lots of pigment, isn't dehydrating on the lips, has a good wear time and, most importantly, wears off naturally and subtly. To wear this colour in a more sheer way I recommend applying a little bit of the colour to the lips then patting it in with a finger.

Have you tried the Bourjois Souffle de Velvet? Have you ever found a dupe for a Nars Satin Lip Pencil? Let me know!
