MAC Viva Glam Cyndi: Dupe (in my opinion)


I am so excited to show you these swatches! I know there are tons of dupes to MAC Viva Glam Cyndi that people have found, however, to me, this is the closest dupe...well the one that swatches/looks the closest on my lips!  I got the NYX Matte lip cream in the MyGlam (Michelle's Phan version of the "Birchbox" etc, except, hers is full sized stuff and brand name, as opposed to sample packets of unnecessary stuff).  So, when i swatched the contents, i saw the similarities in both.  Lets take a look: 

Nys Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo, and MAC VG Cyndi

Excuse the funny duck lips, the odd angles etc, i wanted to show the color :p

Left: Nyx, Right MAC

OK, so MAC is more sheer and glossier, and a tad more coral. but it is hardly noticeable.  I wanted to find a dupe to the color, not the consistency, so this works perfect for me :)   I am so glad i now have an alternative, because my tube is running low....what are your dupes, if any?
