APOLLO VS. VASELINE: LAWbanan for the Grand Dupe

Let the LAWbanan for the Grand Dupe Commence! APOLLO VS. VASELINE

Wouldn't it be nice if your lips would stay luscious 24-7? Smooth, subtly Red and kissable? Or perhaps even just for a moment you might desire to have a red or healthy looking lips all the while as having a strict budget. Well I know just the thing to suggest, the Apollo lip balm or the Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips. With both priced reasonably and affordably, I am very sure that you won’t regret giving either a shot, but the question is who will stand as the most bang for the buck and the grand dupe of one of my most favorite Mac Cosmetics’ Hint of Colour Lip Oil?


Off the bat, the most obvious similarities from both products is that both contain petroleum jelly and pigment that will give you lip moisture, lip protection, and a hint of pinkish-reddish pigment for a healthy looking lips that are not too overpowering. And this I think is very suitable if you want to achieve that no makeup look for women, and also for men. Lastly, both products are affordable and reasonably priced.


Now for the tough part, side by side and in comparison, it is worth noting that there are also differences with each product that makes each unique in its own right, such as the packaging, product consistency and formulation, scent and pigment. With the uniqueness of each product, I will only be mentioning some of the pros that stood out from my experience. And if you really want to know my full review and deliberation, I highly suggest that you watch my vlog. :D


If you are looking for a lip balm that has little pigment that smells nice (Rose scent) when applied, then perhaps Vaseline is the way to go. Although priced a little higher at P125.00 compared to Apollo.


As for Apollo, the consistency is a little less tacky and lightweight. And most prominently, it gives a bit more pigment of pinkish-reddish color compared to Vaseline’s lip therapy. In terms of packaging, they look similar, but the only difference is that the cap does not come off from the actual container. If you’re looking for a more pigmented lip balm that is not too overpowering that is lightweight, perhaps Apollo’s lip balm will work for you, and this is very affordable too at only P50.00 you’ll get 7g, the same amount as Vaseline’s.

In the end, Both are good products, and both have their own unique features that will cater to your particular concerns and needs. But if you really want to know who the grand dupe is and who won the Lawbanan and why, do come along and watch my full review. :)

Keep on glowing!
