Jeffree Star launched his new Alien collection a few weeks ago and the interwebs have been a buzz checking out some of the weird, exciting lipcolours in the collection and trying to find dupes! We’ve also been on the lookout for the new Alien collection and have been running some of the colour swatches through the lipcolourmatch.com lipcolour search engine to find potential shade matches and dupe suggestions! Below are some highlights from our dupe hunting expedition!

Jeffree Who? is a rosy pink colour and the tea is that it’s a close match to Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lip in the shade Jeffree (now discontinued?). Because our database does not have a swatch for Jeffree from KvD, we can’t confirm this rumour, but we do have a few close matches! Let’s dive right into them! Coloured Raine’s matte liquid lip in colour Sorbet seems to be a pretty close dupe to Jeffree Who?, although it may perhaps be a bit of a darker rosy shade.

Using lipcolourmatch.com, we can also search for dupes that are a close match in colour, but perhaps are lipsticks or lip glosses. Checking the ‘Match on colour only’ box will give us all products that are close colour shade matches to Jeffree Who? without restricting ourselves to just matte liquid lips. Using this search, we find that the Covergirl Katy Kat lipstick in colour Magenta Minx is a close colour match.

Searching for dupes that are close matches in shade and colour gives us several results: among them Lime Crime’s matte liquid lip in the colour Nightshade, though it appears to be more on the bluish side.

Another similar shade, appears to be Urban Decay’s comfort matte liquid lip in the colour Blackmail - although the brand’s product website does not have a swatch try-on for comparison.

If you want a similar colour to Triggered with the added shimmer, Urban Decay’s comfort matte metallic liquid lip in the colour Delusional might be a good one to swatch!

Best Actress is a matte liquid lip, but a slightly more translucent beige than Can’t Relate.
