MAC’s ‘Whirl’ lipliner has been around for a while but once Kylie Jenner got her hands on it, there wasn’t a store that could keep it in stock. It is often on backorder so that is why I have decided to share my favorite dupe of this bestseller with all of you!

As you can see from the swatches, the NYX ‘Mauve’ liner is a tad darker with cooler undertones and closer to a rose shade. I personally like how ‘Mauve’ looks here as compared with ‘Whirl’, but I am such a loyal MAC girl so this one is a toughie!

As I was swatching all of my lipliners, I found another NYX pencil to be quite similar to ‘Whirl’ as well, so here is a swatch of MAC “Whirl” vs. NYX “Natural” lipliner:

The Results: Overall, I think the huge difference in price is enough to go with the NYX “Mauve” lipliner. The quality of the NYX pencil was just as good as any MAC lipliner, so the only reason to choose ‘Whirl’ is for it’s brand name or if you like the slight difference in color more. Both pencils have a great texture, making them easy to apply. They also both have rich pigmentation so the color doesn’t just blend in with your natural lip color. I give an A+ to both!
