Out of all the lipsticks in the collection, Play Time is the only one I picked up, and it was as my Back2MAC too. Here the rest are my 'dupes'.
Candy Yum Yum = Petals and Peacocks (blotted)Both are bright bright blue toned pink lipsticks, but I actually think Candy Yum Yum is brighter, but they are similar enogh that I don't need both. Petals and Peacocks comes in the special Liberty of London packaging too, which is a plus!
Saint Germain = Melrose MoodSaint Germain is part of the permanent line so theres no rush to pick it up. I got Melrose Mood from the Heatherette collection as few years ago and they have been compared in the past. They're both cool toned well-pigmented creamy light pink lipsticks, and again, I don't need both!
Quite Cute = Fashion MewsThis lipstick has the name of the collection. I used to be in a phase where I had to purchase te product with the collection's name on it, but I'm so happy I grew out of it. I actually wasn't too impressed with the Quite Cute lipstick when I swatched it, so I'm happy to settle for Fashion Mews, which I love but hardly use! Fashion Mews is from the Hello Kitty collection.
Playing Koi = FleshpotIve also had the urge to pick up Playing Koi lipstick despite it's bad reviews online because of how brightening it looks on the lips, which could also be translated to concealer lips. But still, I just cant stop thinking about it. I have Fleshpot lipstick though, which is just slightly more yellow, less pink, but still just as light. They're quite similar so I shouldn't need both, should I? No. I definitely do not need both!
I admit, A lot of these dupes I stated I haven't Used more than 3x, do there's really no point in me buying their counterparts. I believe that unless you use a colour really often, it's not cost effective buying one you would hardly use. It would be a waste of money and product.
That said, I suppose I'm glad there wasn't a real coral colour in this collection! Otherwise I would be all over it. I was looking forward to Playing Koi lipstick and Miss Behave blush to be real corals instead of being so pale, and I was just disappointed.

Well I hope this post was useful.
And I hope to continue to think like this from now on, and not cave in!
