MAC She-Rebel, How Chic is This, Modern Drama Vamplify Lipglosses

MAC She-Rebel Vamplify Lipgloss

MAC She-Rebel Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as a “dark blue-purple.” It’s a muted, medium-dark purple with bluish shimmer. It looks a lot bluer swatched, but the semi-opaque coverage means the natural color of the lips comes through noticeably–and I think that’s why it appears less blue and more purple on lips. Initially, I expected it to be closer to OCC Technopagan, but it really isn’t. I wish it was more opaque, because application is troublesome as the color goes on unevenly and looks patchy. It lasted for four hours and was somewhat moisturizing while worn. NYX Betrayal (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Estee Lauder Shameless Violet (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, lighter, less glossy (85% similar). NYX Immortal (P, $6.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (80% similar). Colour Pop Be-dazzled (LE, $6.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Giorgio Armani #604 (P, $29.00) is lighter, less pigmented (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC How Chic is This Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as a “violet purple.” It’s a brightened, magenta purple with warm, pink tones and fine violet pearl. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on evenly with smooth, streak-free color that lasted for four hours on me. It was lightly hydrating over time. Make Up For Ever 501 Purple (P, $19.00) is cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Bittersweet (P, $22.00) is more muted (90% similar). MAC Narcissus (LE, $20.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Truth or Dare (208) (P, $28.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Heroine (LE, $15.00)(85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Modern Drama Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as a “dark plum.” It’s a muted, medium-dark berry-burgundy with subtle, cooler undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had a slightly thinner consistency compared to other shades, and it went on surprisingly evenly for such a vampy shade that was only semi-opaque. You can see that lip lines are a little darkened, but it is very subtle. It lasted for five hours, but I had a little bit of feathering on my upper lip. MAC Peer Pressure (LE, $20.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Apocalypse (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). MAC Sin (LE, $15.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Maybelline Caviar Couture (050) (P, $8.99) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC Modern Lure (LE, $15.00) is lighter (85% similar). Dior Intrigue (995) (P, $35.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC Lust for Life (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). MAC Sultana (LE, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA SUMMARY | MAC Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is supposed to have intense, vivid color paired with a moisturizing, glossy, long-wearing formula. Some shades are very pigmented while others are semi-opaque, and some shades apply evenly while others are more streaky. They have a light-medium thick consistency that’s not heavy or goopy, but it’s not really thin; however, they’re really smooth and creamy, so they feel nice on. There’s no tackiness initially, and it feels a lot like lip balm to me–soft, smooth, and my lips felt supple. I find they develop light to moderate tackiness as they wear on. They wear anywhere from three to five hours and are lightly to moderately hydrating over time. The formula has strong, vanilla scent (stronger than their lipsticks; I can smell it for a bit even when it is applied, not just in the tube) but no discernible taste.

BUXOM Room Service Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as an “iridescent mint.” It’s a brightened, light-medium aqua green with a warm, golden sheen that gives it a more metallic finish overall. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that ran a smidgen dry in the pan but didn’t appear that way on the lid. The color started to fade after eight hours of wear on me. Chanel Promesse #4 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Lancome Fashion Forward (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, cooler (95% similar). Dior Dulcinee #2 (LE) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Zestful (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Dior Blue Lagoon (374) Eyeshadow #5 (LE) is more muted (90% similar). theBalm #36 (P, $6.50) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar).

BUXOM No Faux Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as an “iridescent snakeskin.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark reddish brown with green-teal shimmer, so it has a multi-faceted appearance and flashes cooler, greener and then warmer and redder. I felt like the duochrome effect was particularly noticeable with this one, even on the lid, without having to contort yourself into weird positions. The texture was really dense and “thick,” even though it is a powder, and it applied well on the skin with smooth, even color that was easily blended out. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading on me. Urban Decay Lounge (P, $18.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC I've Got a Crush on You (LE, $32.50) is more shimmery, cooler (95% similar). Ardency Inn Peacock (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar).

BUXOM Cool Caviar Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “shimmering gunmetal.” It’s a dark, charcoal gray with a subtle, cool undertone and a frosted sheen. It had good pigmentation with a soft, fairly blendable and easy to use texture–but it was just a smidgen dry–that lasted for eight hours on me. Laura Mercier Gunmetal (LE, $23.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Bao Bao's Jewels #5 (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever ME108 Steel (P, $21.00) is warmer (95% similar).

BUXOM Diamond Darling Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “shimmering frost.” It’s a brightened, light beige with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a dense, buttery consistency that adhered really well to bare skin. The color blended out without issue, and it wore for eight hours before it started to fade. LORAC Dream Girl #9 (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Vanilla (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Smoky Black Friday #1 (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Dior Jardin #2 (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). Viseart Yves (P) is less shimmery (95% similar). theBalm Envious Erin (P, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Tisse Paris #2 (P) is less shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pink Glow #1 (LE) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Inglot #395 (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

BUXOM Spoiled Sexy Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “matte deep mauve.” It’s a muted, medium-dark mauve with warm, brown undertones and a matte finish. It had sheer color coverage, which was likely the result of it being incredibly powdery and prone to sheering out–so little of it stuck to bare skin. This is a shade that absolutely needs some sort of primer to help it adhere to the lid. What little of it I could see on the skin seemed to stay on all right for seven hours. LORAC Pink Mauve (P) is warmer (95% similar). LORAC Pink Mauve (P) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Haux (P, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Hourglass Monochrome #4 (P) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Quarry (P, $16.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Anastasia Dusty Rose (LE, $12.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tarte Eco-chic (LE) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever M546 Dark Purple Taupe (P, $21.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tarte Misty Mauve (LE) is darker, cooler (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

BUXOM IT Crowd Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “glimmering cayenne.” It’s a bold, medium-dark orange with warm undertones and a dusting of gold shimmer over a matte finish. It had rich color payoff with a soft, blendable consistency that didn’t sheer out too readily, but I noticed it was thinner and didn’t play as well with some of the denser frosts from the range. The color lasted for eight hours on me. Sugarpill Flamepoint (P, $12.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (95% similar). Inglot #123R Bottom (P, $6.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Red Brick (P, $16.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). Inglot #123R Middle (P, $6.00) is lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever S742 Tomato (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Farasha (LE, $16.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Mandala (LE) is darker (90% similar). MAC Orange (P, $16.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). NARS Persia (P, $24.00) is darker (90% similar). Viseart Dark Matte #8 (P) is lighter, more muted (85% similar). Disney by Sephora Rajah (LE) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

BUXOM Party Girl Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “fuchsia luster.” It’s a medium-dark, fuchsia pink with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had decent pigmentation, but I found it really hard to blend out on the lid, and it had a tendency to stick where it applied and not wanting to diffuse. It lasted for eight hours before I saw fading, but I would use this one over a primer. Fyrinnae Superstar (P, $6.80) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Noise (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery, darker, more muted (95% similar). Too Faced Totally Fetch (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker, more pigmented (95% similar). Too Faced Bubblegum (LE, $16.00) is lighter, more muted (90% similar). Too Faced Bright Eyes (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Infra-violet (LE, $22.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever ME910 Electric Magenta (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Sugarpill Smitten (LE, $13.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Too Faced Monaco (P, $16.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Woodstock (P, $18.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). Sugarpill Decora (P, $13.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Sleek MakeUP Acid #1 (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, darker, brighter (85% similar). Estee Lauder Violet Underground #1 (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

BUXOM VIP Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “sparkling orchid.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark purple with warm, pink undertones and a matte finish. It was incredibly powdery and dry, which yielded sheerer, uneven color coverage and made it difficult to blend as it got all over the place. It lasted for six hours before it had faded noticeably. NARS Fashion Rebel #2 (LE, $24.00) is warmer (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Ultra Violet (LE, $21.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Inglot #386 (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

BUXOM Feather Boa Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “matte pastel pink.” It’s a light-medium, yellow-toned pink with a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, silky consistency that ran a little powdery but applied well to bare skin and only sheered out slightly when blended. The color lasted for seven and a half hours on me. MAC The Wrong Man (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Lover #4 (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Enigma #5 (P) is lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Too-Too (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals Fortune (LE) is warmer (90% similar). Inglot #359 (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA SUMMARY | BUXOM Eyeshadow ($12.00 each or $40 for six) is a new formula that is available as a customizable palette system, where you can purchase a single shade and an individual compact for $13 or purchase a six-pan palette, plus six eyeshadows to go inside of it, for $40. Each eyeshadow is held inside a metal pan that is (presumably) glued into a plastic pan that snaps into the compact/palette. The eyeshadows are easily lifted in and out of the palette, so you can rearrange them or create a new combination if you have more than one set of six. They will fit into a Z-palette, but you’ll need to add a magnet to keep it in place. The eyeshadow formula is one that works better in action than swatched, as several of the mattes seemed on the thinner, more powdery side, but then they would blend exceptionally well while adhering to bare skin–and they wouldn’t fade any faster than the more shimmery eyeshadows. The more shimmery shades tended to outperform the matte shades with better color payoff. These eyeshadows seem to have a slightly firmer press to them (more in the style of your average MAC eyeshadow), and they feel quite different compared to bareMinerals’ Ready line, as those have a thicker, denser consistency.

NYX Pastel Chic & Baby Doll HD Blushes

NYX Pastel Chic HD Blush

NYX Pastel Chic HD Blush ($6.50 for 0.16 oz.) is a very pale pink with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It is almost like a washed-out lavender. There is a strong white base, so on my skin tone, it looks chalky, and obviously I’m unable to show it to its best appearance as a result, even though it had semi-opaque coverage. (It is going to be ideal for someone who is fairer and finds most blushes too dark for their preferences.) The texture is very, very powdery, despite having an incredibly silky consistency to the touch but remains easy to blend out on the skin and looks even applied. On me, it wore for seven hours before fading. Makeup Geek First Love (P, $9.99) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Full of Joy (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker, brighter (85% similar). Hourglass Ethereal Glow (P, $35.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Pink Buttercream (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Unconventional (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

NYX Baby Doll HD Blush ($6.50 for 0.16 oz.) is a pop of light-medium pink with subtle, cool blue undertones and a luminous sheen. It had good pigmentation that was buildable to totally opaque coverage in two layers with a moderate shimmer that was noticeable without emphasizing pores. The blush had a somewhat powdery consistency in the pan, but it applied well and sat nicely on the skin. It started to fade after eight hours of wear. Makeup Geek Head Over Heels (P, $9.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Well Dressed (P, $21.00) is cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Olive (LE, $8.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Sweet Pink (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Dollface (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever #210 HD Blush (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Boba (P, $8.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC I'm a Lover (P, $23.50) is less shimmery (90% similar). Physicians Formula Rose (P, $12.99) is darker, more muted, warmer (85% similar). Givenchy It-Girl Purple (P, $44.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). Colour Pop Prenup (P, $8.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Surratt Beauty Guimauve (P, $32.00) is lighter (85% similar). theBalm Down Boy (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Clinique Pink Pop (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Pure Femininity (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Urban Decay Naked on the Run Blush (LE) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Urban Decay Crush (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA SUMMARY | NYX’s newest blush formula is supposed to be a “high definition, lightweight blush that blends evenly” that is “vibrant and silky.” The texture tended to be on the more powdery side, but it sits well and doesn’t look powdery applied. Many shades have a more luminous finish to them where the shimmer is fine enough to create a Baby Doll, rather than a frosted finish (though a couple are quite shimmery). The formula blends fairly easily on the skin and has medium, buildable coverage with some being very pigmented right off the bat. The wear time is between seven and eight hours.
