MAC Highlights, Really Me, Red Rock Lipsticks

MAC Highlights Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “very pale creamy peach [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a light-medium peach with warm, orange undertones and a natural shine. It had sheer pigmentation with a lightweight texture with some slip. Unfortunately, it applied unevenly and gathered into lip lines from the get-go on my lips. The color lasted for an hour and a half on me, while the formula was neither hydrating nor drying. This is a repromote, though the permanent version seemed darker swatched and in the tube, but it didn’t vary as much applied. Chanel Volage (227) (LE, $36.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). MAC Real Redhead (LE, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). Chanel Cheri (61) (DC, $34.00) is glossier (95% similar). MAC Pure Vanity (LE, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC You've Got It (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). bareMinerals Dream Big (LE, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Naked Bud (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Tantric (P, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Chanel Catherine (410) (P, $37.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Charmeuse (142) (LE, $36.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Solar Gold (LE, $49.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Free as a Butterfly (LE, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Yellow It-stick (603) (LE, $37.00) is darker (85% similar). Tarte Mimosa (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Mangrove, Nifty Neon, Gold Xixi Lipsticks

MAC Mangrove Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “hot, bright red [with a Matte finish].” It’s a bold, bright, medium orange-red with strong, orange undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation that covered evenly and smoothly. The consistency was thinner but not so thin that it dragged nor did it apply sheerly. On me, it lasted for six hours and left a stain behind, though it was also a bit drying. This is a repromote. Bite Beauty Blood Orange (P, $24.00) is brighter (95% similar). MAC Vermillion Vee (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Hourglass Muse (P, $28.00) is less glossy (95% similar). MAC Rozz (LE, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Bite Beauty #003 (LE, $36.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). Bite Beauty GTA (LE, $26.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus 2 (LE, $17.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Scarlet Ibis (LE, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Lady Danger (P, $17.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Dangerous (P, $17.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury 1975 Red (LE, $32.00) is darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Succulent (P, $6.00) is less glossy (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
