Beauty Dupes: Nars Schiap vs. Milani Rose Hip

After receiving a few questions on which lipstick I am wearing in my Laura Mercier Loose Powder post (Nars Schiap), I decided it would be the perfect time to rave about how much I love bright pink lipsticks! Nars Schiap has to be my Holy Grail of pink lipsticks, but as the Nars price tag can be a bit hefty for some ($26 at your local Sephora), Milani offers up a drug store duplicate that will make your wallet happy. Milani's Rose Hip is a steal retailing at around just $4 and while the differences are quite subtle, this is an awesome substitute for Schiap. While Nars Schiap may be just a touch pinker, while Rose Hip leans a little more purple (just by a hair though) I would say the biggest difference in these two lipsticks is the finish. Schiap packs a much more matte finish while Rose Hip is creamier with a slight sheen to it. I get a slightly longer weartime with Schiap, but Rose Hip is more moisturizing. For you honey bees dying to try out this bold lip trend without shelling out major bucks, I would suggest picking up Milani Rose Hip before committing to a more expensive brand like Nars. Below is a side by side swatch comparison as well as my FOTD featuring both lipsticks for you to see for yourself how close these two match up. Will you be splurging on Nars' famous Schiap? Or will you be saving your pennies with Milani's Rose Hip? Leave your thoughts in the comments.

  2. both look really pretty. i've been wanting to try schiap but keep holding back because of the price hahaha. i've seen milani's before but i always have bad experience with drugstore lipsticks so yeah :( i'm still gonna try both though.

  3. This is a great dupe! I actually prefer the Milani one because of it's glossier finish. Both look lovely on you though! :D
