Compare the Pair: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Primrose and MAC Creme Cup

I was wearing the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Primrose the other day when I realised it looks very similar to my all time favourite lipstick, MAC's Creme Cup. So, as typical beauty blogger, I decided I needed to compare them for you all.  
Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipstick in Primrose is a cool toned (blue based) pale pink. A lot of people describe this as a lavender pink. I don't think it's cool enough to fit that description but hey, that doesn't mean they're wrong! MAC describes Creme Cup as a light blue pink. Once again, it's a blue based pink but it's definitely warmer than Primrose.

Both lipsticks are creme formulas, my favourite lipstick formula. Because of their creme formula I find they both glide over the lips, wear extremely well, feel comfortable and wear off the lips evenly. In saying that though, I do feel like the MAC's Creme Cup is a bit more creamy a little more comfortable. The MAC lipstick also has the famous vanilla smell that I just love which makes it a bit of a winner in my eyes, even though that doesn't influence the performance of the product. 

There's not a whole lot of difference between these products but, if I'm being completely honest, I do prefer MAC's Creme Cup. Being the warmer of the two, I feel like it's a big more wearable than Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipstick in Primrose and goes with a lot more make up looks. It is, however, the more expensive of the two. 

In Australia MAC's Creme Cup lipstick is $36.00 for 3.0g and Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipstick in Primrose is $21.95 for 4.2g at Priceline. When you look at it that way, Revlon's does look like a winner, don't you think?

Do you have either or both of these lipsticks? Which is your favourite? What would you like to see compared next in the Compare the Pair series? Let me know.
