Drugstore Alternatives to Mac lipstick in Twig

MAC's lipstick in Twig has been very popular this past year. I would describe it as a pink brown color. It doesn't lean too pink or too brown but depending on what color lip liner you pair this with you can choose to bring out more of the pink or the brown in it. Since it is a very popular color because of the whole 90's  mauve/ pink brown lipsticks coming back in style it seems to be sold out a lot. I decided to go through my drugstore makeup and see if I could find some colors that resembled Twig.

After countless swatches I ended up with these three lipsticks. When swatched and also on the lips they look very similar to each other. The only difference is the price tag. Wet n Wild Spiked with Rum leans a bit warmer than the other two and retails for $1.99 at drugstores, Maybelline Touch of Spice retails for around $8.00 depending on where you get it, and MAC Twig retails for $16.00 at MAC stores.
