I was so mad that I missed out on Afrobella’s lipglass for the MAC Bloggers Obsession Collection, All of My Purple Life. I told myself that I didn’t need it or anything else in the collection. Silly me. Well while sorting through my collection I ran across a lipstick that I barely wear because it tends to be a little too cool-toned for me. So I began to experiment and swatched the lipstick on my arm, the plan being to try different lipglosses on top. When I applied the first gloss my eyes almost popped out of my head as I thought “Woah Nelly, that looks like All of My Purple Life!!!”
My little experiment included MAC Go For It Lipstick from the In the Groove Collection with NYX Megashine Lipgloss in African Queen on top. This color combination gave me the closest dupe that I’ve seen so far for All of My Purple Life. Not quite a match for the in the tube color but matches the on lip color, and more opaque.

I had to put the combination on my lips to be sure that my eyes were not fooling me. Nope, they weren’t.
All of My Purple Life…
Now MAC Go For It was limited edition, however the MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme in Goes and Goes is an exact dupe and it’s permanent. NYX Megashine Lipgloss in African Queen can be found at cherryculture.com or at your local retailer that sells NYX. It may not be 100% exact but it’s close enough. Also note that Afrobella was wearing a hint of an OCC Lip Tar under All of My Purple Life in this pic.
So what do you guys think, dupe or not?
