Innocence, Beware Dupe & Current Favorites

Lately I had been trying to "shop my stash" instead of going out and buying makeup that I doooon't necessarily need.  You feel me?  I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm not on a shopping "ban" or anything (that would be a tragedy) but I'm just trying to be a bit "smarter" with my shopping habits.  Yay me!

The product that I've brought out of my stash and have not stopped using lately is one of the Limited Edition lipsticks from the MAC Venomous Villains collection called Innocence, Beware! 

It's a creamsheen formula so it has nice pigmentation and I haven't found it to be very drying like some nudes can be.  It's nude but still looks natural on the lips so I've loved it now that I have a little more color in my skin.  The only negative thing is that it's limited edition!  So the last time I was in MAC I thought I'd pull it out and try to find something from the permanent line that was comparable.  

After a few swatches I found the color Hue, and as you can see, they're almost exactly the same.  Yay!  
Innocence Beware, Hue

I have heard people mention Hue before as a favorite, but with all the collections that MAC releases I hardly have time to look at the permanent line.  There's some good stuff in there!
The only noticeable difference between the two is that Hue is a glaze formula so it has a little more gloss to it than Innocence, Beware which is a creamsheen.  Other than that they look exactly the same on my lips and I couldn't be happier!  

So even though I did good by shopping my stash and re-discovering one kinda led me to buy a new product.  Funny how that works out, lol.  

Thanks for reading!
