|Swap For Safer: MAC Lipstick in "Blankety"|
I absolutely love this nude shade! It's the best cool toned nude shade for my skin tone, and it looks gorgeous with a smokey eye. However, MAC Lipsticks do not have the cleanest ingredients, so when I was at Sephora recently, I was determined to find a non-toxic dupe for it.
Let's get started!
Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in "Madeira"
The Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencils retail for $24 (0.09 oz) and are available in-store and online exclusively at Sephora.
Madeira is described as a nude pink. It's similar to MAC Blankety, which is described as a soft pink beige, but warmer. I swatched these two shades next to each other during my latest Sephora trip, and they were almost identical in color, finish, and opacity. (My MAC Blankety Review HERE)
Both shades leave a natural shine creme finish to the lips while providing excellent color payoff.
MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick in "Blankety"
Unlike MAC Blankety, Bite Beauty Madeira has no artificial scent, polyethylene, or other questionable ingredients. Both formulas do contain artificial dyes.
Here is a quick comparison of the two ingredient listings:

Whether you're looking for a dupe for MAC's Blankety, or looking to swap out your lipsticks for cleaner options, I highly recommend Madeira by Bite Beauty.
I realized I've done mostly lipstick options for Swap For Safer, so I will try to make the next one a skincare option!
