Dupe | NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in “Cruella” vs. Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in “107”

Screen Shot 2015-05-18 at 8.45.26 PM

When I first received the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in “Cruella” as the 2015 Sephora Beauty Insider birthday gift, I immediately fell in love with it and had a whole new outlook on red lipstick.

0607845024545“Cruella” is a beautiful matte ‘scarlet red’ shade, and because of its neutral undertones, it will flatter a variety of different skintones, which is what makes it so special. The only problem is that is costs $26, which leads me to the main point of this whole post. I found a dupe for the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in “Cruella”

LastingFinishMatte_PRODUCT_01The dupe I found for this was the Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss in the shade 107, which only costs $4.99!


Swatches from Left to Right: NARS “Cruella”, Rimmel “107”

When swatched, the Rimmel 107 looks slightly darker and more pinky, while the Cruella is a bit more red. However, when I applied them on my lips, they look identical and I can’t tell the difference. Both shades are matte and extremely long-lasting, yet they don’t feel overly drying on the lips. They are both amazing quality and I would completely recommend purchasing Rimmel “107” next time you go to the drugstore because it is an amazing dupe for NARS “Cruella”!

  1. Thanks! Picked up the Rimmel lipstick today. I was so close to shelling out $26 for Nars cruella since my birthday freebie is running out.


      1. Hi! Didn’t you think the 107 is a lot more pinkish than red? Just asking coz I bought it and tried it on today, but didnt get the Cruella red 😦


      2. I wrote this dupe post because I honeslty beleive that it is a wonderful color dupe considering the $20 price with an amazing formula as well. However, different products always work diffrently on different people, so I am sad that it didn’t work out for you. Let me know if you ever need anything:) xoxo


  2. I loved the Cruella shade. Bought the Rimmel 107, but its a lot pinker than the red in the Cruella! 😦
    I wished to get the deep Cruella red….


    1. I love “Cruella” too, but on my lips, Rimmel 107 looks exactly the same. I’m so sorry it didn’t work out for you. Maybe you can take “Cruella” into a Sephora, MAC, or Nordstrom store and have someone swatch it for you and find a different dupe. Thanks for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate it. xoxo


  3. Its depend on your undertone i assume?

    I’m a NW10-NW15 girl, Rimmel 107 is a very dark berry-red (blue toned cranberrie) lipstick for me.
    The Cruella one is a classic red with subtile warm undertone.

    I find picture who illustrate what i want to say.

    1. Thanks so much for reading and letting by me know, I really appreciate the feedback! I have warm skin with yellow/olive undertones and both shades look almost identical on me. It might be influenced by my pigmented lips, but I think considering the $20 price difference, I think it’s a great overall dupe! Thanks! xoxo
