'Bad Girl RiRi' is one of the three shades of lipstick Rihanna created for her latest holiday collaboration with M.A.C. I luckily managed to pick up one of this shade, which is unlike any other colour in my lipstick collection; a dark rose gold/brown/nude with a matte finish.
As you can see the packaging is superb, almost reason enough to buy one (okay probably my main reason), but the colour, texture and quality of the product itself was very pleasantly surprising.

As you can see on the lips, is it a mix of browns and deep rose gold, which turns out, is bloody flattering, especially with a tan or darker skin tones.
I love this, I hear you say…but it is sold out EVERYWHERE, so why are you teasing me?
Well girls, I have found the most incredible dupe for this colour, with the same matte finish and everything. Total excitement. I also love having a dupe of limited edition colours, for when I go out and don't want to end up losing it (extreme possibility).
Twig. Twig by M.A.C. That is the secret answer, despite flash making it look slightly glossy in the pics below (it's not), it is almost a double take, and I just couldn't be happier to have found it.
As you can see it's a pretty damn close match, and the texture (gorgeous creamy matte), is spot on too. So if you didn't managed to get your paws on Miss.Fenty's colab action with M.A.C, then definitely give this a go, because it's beautiful.

They look slighty different shades above (due to extra usage of Twig), but had I waited and shown you them both unused, they would be pretty much twins. I can never wait…
