MAC “Faux” Safer Swaps

My all-time favorite lipstick used to be MAC’s Faux, so for anyone who loved that color also, but wanted a safer swap, here are some similar colors! I find that if I add Gabriel Cosmetic’s Taupe color with the Lauren Brooke Peluche, it’s pretty much identical but I’m still looking for one lipstick that is the perfect match. Have one to suggest? Comment below! In the meantime, here are some colors that are similar for anyone else who loves a taupe mauve color as I do!


  1. 100% Pure Lip Carmel in Ganache
  2. Lauren Brooke in Peluche
  3. MAC Faux
  4. Gabriel in Nude
  5. Red Apple Girls in Naughty
  6. Zuii Organic Satin Lip in Willow
  7. Red Apple Girls in Ooh La La

  1. have you tried Fairy Girl Cosmetics lipsticks? they have a wide range of pinks – from your photo I think Princess would be their closest color to Faux. but it’s worth perusing their whole website (look at the Instagram photos lower down on each lipstick’s page, rather than just the photo of lips, in order to see swatches on skin and in some cases a person wearing it) and maybe trying a few.
