MAC x Star Trek The Naked Time & Bird of Prey Pressed Pigments

MAC The Naked Time Pressed Pigment

MAC The Naked Time Pressed Pigment ($23.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light gold with warm, yellow undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had medium coverage applied dry, and it had full coverage when applied damp. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and blendable on bare skin, though some of the sparkles separate from the base powder when I worked to diffuse the edges of the initial application. The color lasted well for eight hours with minor fall out. Colour Pop Fringe (DC, $5.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain Petrouchka #1 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Peach Sorbet (P, $12.00) is darker (95% similar). Sephora Minx (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Dior Golden Flower #3 (LE) is darker (95% similar). MAC Canter (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Laura Mercier Sugar Frost (P, $28.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Anastasia Chic (LE, $12.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Famous (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Dearest (P) is darker (90% similar). MAC In the Meadow #2 (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Baby It's Gold Outside (LE) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Best Makeup (LE, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Bird of Prey Pressed Pigment ($23.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a dirty, dark green with neutral-to-warm undertones and multi-colored sparkle with dominant gold glitter. It had semi-sheer coverage applied dry, and it was totally opaque when applied damp. The texture was fairly blendable, though it did not apply as evenly as desired to bare skin. The color wore well for eight hours with some noticeable fallout, but it was less than you might expect, given the amount of sparkle in the shade. Giorgio Armani Onyx (05) (P, $39.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Legendary Lure (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Zodiac (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Zodiac (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Sephora Luxurious Boot Camp (P, $12.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Pressed Pigment ($23.00 for 0.10 oz.) is supposed to have buildable coverage with a wet/dry formula that is “blendable,” wears “eight hours,” and has “extreme adherence” due to the “cream-like” texture. In general, they have semi-sheer to medium coverage applied dry and semi-opaque to fully opaque coverage when applied damp. The texture is smooth, almost wet but still a powder, and is fairly blendable, though the glitter tends to diffuse beyond the base color when blended. I typically get around eight hours of wear with little to moderate fall out.

XX Vintage Vice Lipstick | $17.00 | Limited Edition

Can you believe it’s been 20 years since we launched our first collection? (We know, we’re totally aging ourselves right now.) To mark this huge milestone, we’re bringing back old-school shades you thought you’d never see again. Urban Decay introduces Vice Lipstick Vintage Capsule Collection—featuring nine shades from our original lip lineup, all in our creamy, addictive Vice formula. The perfect mix of vintage UD and modern luxury, these shades haven’t been available in years! Get your hands on cult favorites like UV-B (a shifty blue that Wende wore all the time in the ‘90s) and Pallor (a modern, frosty lavender gray that’s extremely flattering). And let’s not forget our most-requested vintage shade, Bruise, a deep wine red with a green shift.

  • Oil Slick Sheer black with silver micro-glitter (Sheer)
  • Frostbite Frosted deep blue with multicolored micro-glitter (Cream)
  • Smog Deep coppery bronze (Cream)
  • UV-B Vibrant blue with purple shift (Cream)
  • Pallor Frosted lavender with gray shift (Cream)
  • Plague Bright purple with pink undertone (Cream)
  • Bruise Sheer deep burgundy red with green shift (Sheer)
  • Roach Deep burgundy-brown (Cream)
  • Asphyxia Soft lavender with blue micro-glitter (Cream)

Black Mail Vice Lipstick Palette | $35.00 | Limited Edition, Ulta/Macy's

When it comes to our creamy, addictive Vice Lipstick, too much is never enough. Urban Decay introduces Vice Lipstick Palette, available in two unique color ways. Indulge your vice with multiple finishes and a DOZEN shades from our massive collection—from neutral to bright, dark to light. Every shade applies smoothly (without dragging or skipping), hugs lips, and feels amazing. Wende got tired of lugging around a heavy bag loaded with all her favorite lipsticks. She took a poll at UDHQ to find out how many shades her employees had in their makeup bags, and some had as many as nine! Ever the problem solver, she created our Vice Lipstick Palettes. Ideal for travel (and loaded with a retractable lip brush), both of these super-sleek palettes were made for experimentation. Been toying with trying a new shade but weren’t ready to commit? With our Vice Lipstick Palettes, now you’ve got no excuse. Keep your options open without having to weigh down your makeup bag. Use the included brush to layer or mix shades; it’s ideal for contouring and creating added depth and dimension.

  • Sheer Shame Berry (Sheer)
  • Firebird Deep fuchsia (Cream)
  • Big Bang Bright pink sparkle (Metallized)
  • Disobedient Medium pink (Cream)
  • EZ Bright red-orange (Cream)

Thanks to Zoe for today's question!

What’s the best way to travel with makeup?

For palettes and anything similar that is breakable, I like to wrap in clothes, like pajamas (in case everything shatters, I wouldn’t be devastated if my pajamas were stained). I usually carry-on, but if I checked my luggage, I’d also put in a slim foam layer underneath the lids of plastic and metal compacts, especially freestyle palettes. Everything else is rather sturdy!
