Save. I love a good MAC lipstick, and I love Twig dearly, but in this case, if you only wanted one of these, I would save your $17 and spend $6 or $7 on Maybelline Touch of Spice. I never thought I would say that since I haven’t been a huge fan of Maybelline lipsticks in the past, but their creamy matte lipsticks are some of the best lipsticks I’ve tried! I want them to release more shades so I can purchase more because they’re that wonderful.

For around $6 you get .05 oz more product than if you were to buy MAC Twig. The Maybelline lipstick is also more saturated so it’s more vibrant and pigmented. I also think it applies a bit better in one swipe. One swipe is very intense and it glides on so creamy. Twig is also creamy, but it has a tad bit more shine to it since it has a satin finish. It is still opaque in one swipe, but it’s not AS opaque in one swipe if that makes sense.

Both are great lipsticks and great quality, but I think you get a little bit more bang for your buck with Maybelline Touch of Spice. Plus, it’s more readily available.

Do you own either of these? Which do you prefer? Let me know in the comments below!

  • I wish that Maybelline brought over the creamy mattes to Australia! I’ll definitely be checking them out when I’m in America though, there are some awesome shades and the formula sounds amazing!

    • Ah that’s a bummer that it’s not in Australia! I’d definitely suggest picking up like all of them when you visit America haha! Definitely the best formula I’ve tried from the drugstore and a really great one in general!
