I've been lusting after Fenty Gloss Bomb since the day it dropped! I've been getting back into glosses lately and Gloss Bomb is just my taste. A nude with just a bit of shimmer and lots of shine! The only thing that held me back was the price tag. At $18 (US) a pop, its more than I usually like to spend on lip products. So of course the first thing I did was search all the blogs and groups for some dupes. 

With the Fenty Gloss Bomb being rather new there wasn't a huge list of similar products but I did find a couple that looked promising. The first dupe I picked up was the Coloupop Gloss in the shade My Jam. This product retails for about $6 (US) and while this product is slightly more glittery/metallic than the others its still a pretty close shade match. Even though it has more glitter in it I find that it still feels great on the lips and the color pay off is a bit more opaque than the other two. When the color fades away your lips are left with lots of glitter but its not the chunky kind it actually looks pretty good and feels like nothing. If you like nude glosses but want a bit more shimmer to your look Colourpop My Jam is for you! 

The next dupe I picked up is the Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Rosy Future which retails for $5.89 (US). When it first arrived I immediately fell in love with it. The shade is a lovely slight rosy nude with a bit of shimmer. It feels great on the lips not sticky or runny just a lovely constancy that offers a pretty good color pay off alone or looks even better over a lipliner.  The only think I didn't like was that Revlon decided to place a big ugly white sticker with the ingredients on the tube. I find it to be an eyesore. 

Even though I loved Rosy Future and wore it often I still desperately longed for Gloss Bomb. What can I say I'm a sucker for packaging and good branding campaign so I finally purchased it during the Sephora VIB sale. It arrived a few hours ago and while it smells like candy and feels very luxurious on the lips it 100% looks exactly like Revlon Rosy Future on the lips! If I'm being honest I think I might even like Revlon better it has a better color pay off in my opinion.

So if you are like me and really want Fenty Gloss bomb but don't want to pay almost $20 for a single gloss than pick up Revlon Rosy Future its a straight up steal at $5.89.

Take a look at the swatches below and let me know if you think! Also please forgive my over grown mustache and acne scars.


Update 5/8/2018: 

Bite Agave Lip Mask in Champagne is another color dupe y'all! The color is very similar to Gloss bomb but might me slightly less luminous. The lip mask is on the pricer side at $26 which is actually more expensive then Fenty but it doubles as a lip treatment. Its very thick and moisturizing so I've been using this in the pits of winters when my lips are super dry and cracky but I still want to look cute.

But the question is – aside from color payoff, how did the Revlon fare in terms of feel and lasting power?? Thx :)
