British shoppers have praised a £1.50 lipstick that they claim is almost identical to one sold by beauty giant MAC – but is a fraction of the price.

Primark’s You Do You Babe matte lipstick is drawing comparisons to the Velvet Teddy shade sold by MAC.

Posting to Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group, customer Kira Astley, from Hull, told how the ‘amazing’ budget version is ‘very similar’ to its expensive counterpart, which will set make-up lovers back £17.50.

Social media users were quick to share their excitement for the cheaper cosmetic, adding that they’ll be rushing out to buy the beauty product.

She shared a picture of the two lipsticks – You Do You Babe and Velvet Touch – side-by-side to show the similar matte finishes.

Kira continued: ‘They stayed on throughout my 10 hour shift at work without budging. I’m surprised how good they are.’

‘The Primark ones are cruelty free as well – double win!’ a second enthused, while a third added: ‘I have this one and it’s fab.’

Explaining that she usually spent over £100 on the original perfume, Lou said she was ‘seriously impressed’ by the New Look offering and took to the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group to share her find. 

Those who knew of the dupe confirmed it indeed smelled exactly like Coco Mademoiselle, and admitted they had been dreaming of finding a cheaper version.
