MAC Quick Sizzle Matte Lipstick Dupes!

MAC Quick Sizzle Matte Lipstick

Quick Sizzle is the sell-out shade in the limited edition Shop MAC, Cook MAC collection. It’s just been released in Asia, and the first shop I hit was already out of this shade.
Don’t you just hate it when the gorgeous colors are all limited edition???
In any case, I managed to pick one up, and immediately thought “Hmm, this looks familiar.” I probably had a couple of shades very similar to it. But I knew it would be sold out the next day, so I just couldn’t bear the thought of missing out. (Let me hear you say it; “S-U-C-K-E-R….” Thank you.)

Well let’s get to the point of this post;
If you missed out on the shade and can’t get hold of it, PLEASE don’t trawl through  eBay trying to buy it at exorbitant prices. There are 2 shades that are REALLY similar. BOTH are cheaper. Unless you're a MAC collector, you probably don't need to pay US$14.50 for Quick Sizzle.
In the tubes, they look different.
Swatched, the difference in shades is visible but minimal.
On the lips - believe me - NOBODY else will really know the difference.

Swatches (L-to-R): Sephora Love Test, NYX Sweet Pink, and MAC Quick Sizzle

  1. NYX Matte Lipstick in Sweet Pink: $5.50 on beflurt.com (don’t forget the Coupon Code MAKEUPBOX for a 10% discount!)
  2. Sephora Rouge Cream Lipstick in R11 Love Test: $12 at Sephora stores 
NYX Sweet Pink:
  • 95% color match (a tad more muted/cool-toned than Quick Sizzle)
  • 100% texture match
Sephora Love Test:
  • 97-98% color match (these go on extremely similar; Love Test is slightly more magenta, but the difference is almost indiscernible on the lips)
  • 70% texture match (the Sephora is a creme version of Quick Sizzle, so if you don’t like mattes, this is perfect)
Quick Sizzle has a hint more red/warmth than the other 2 lipsticks, but they’re the same sort of flattering, rosy fuchsia pink that doesn’t look neon, doesn’t look red, can be worn on a weekend OR for work, and goes with SOOO many skin tones. 


  1. Beautiful bright color! I wonder if its similar to Mac Something New? I'm a sucker for the brights!

    1. Hi Jillian, they're in a similar family but I'd say Quick Sizzle is a touch deeper and stronger. I don't have Something New though, so this is a guesstimate!

    2. Good to know, thanks for replying!

  2. OMG!!! So...so thrilled to find a suitible dupe for this!

    1. I should have known since I'm always drawn to this type of pink, LOL! (Then maybe I would have saved some money...)
      But at least you guys can just go for the dupes now!
