An almost perfect dupe?

Okay so tonight we have another lip post - I just love lipstick guys, but I do promise something different in the next few weeks, now neither of these lippies are particularly new releases but they are both perfect for the berry stained lip trend.  
First up we have the Giorgio Armarni lip maestro in the shade 201 which is a beautiful deep berry shade featuring purple undertones with an almost matte finish. When worn straight on the lip this colour looks gorgeous but where it really shines is if you blot it. Next is the Rimmel Kate Moss matte lipstick 107  which looks more red toned in the bullet but is actually much more of a burgundy shade and if I'm honest is an almost identical match to the lip maestro at a fraction of the cost. Rimmel have really hit the nail on the head with this shade as it's on trend , has a nice formula and doesn't even have too much of an artificial smell...RESULT! 

So is it worth buying the Giorgio Armarni? 
At £5.49 the Rimmel is more than half the price of the lip maestro so you're probably asking is it worth it? Honestly probably not but I will say that the Armarni is a lot more moisturising and looks much stronger when applied directly to the lip and personally I like that. I guess it all depends on what you are looking for in a lipstick ...
