Good quality makeup is expensive, but thanks to Kayla Myers (@kaylamyers_), the babes can look good without breaking the bank.

Woman compares PEP and Mac lipsticks

In a trending TikTok video, Kayla compared two brown lipsticks of similar shades from the higher-end brand Mac to another more affordable one from LA Lab sold at PEP.

She first swatched and then applied both lipsticks to her lips as she compared the colour and matte texture of the two. She noticed very little difference between the R27 PEP lipstick and the R365 Mac one.

"Both of these lipsticks are very pigmented and full coverage. If you do want to grab the PEP store one, you'll have to reapply during the day because it has a satin finish, and it will move.
"I personally like the Mac formula better because it is more long-lasting. But not everyone can afford close to R400 on lipstick, so I really do think that the PEP stores option is good as well," Kayla shared.

Kayla said she compared the two lipsticks because she had never found affordable brown lippies - until now! Check out the video below:
