MAC Lap Dog & Dressed to the K9s Mineralize Lipglasses

MAC Lap Dog Mineralize Glass ($23.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is described as a “pale light pinky nude.” It’s a light, milky beige with warm undertones and finer pink shimmer and white sparkle. It noticeably lightens my lips and gives a layer of semi-sheer coverage. The gloss settles into lip lines, but the more medium-weight consistency manages to make it appear less disastrous than a lot of similarly-hued glosses on. It disappears within two hours of wear, though, and it was slightly hydrating after wearing it twice in a row. MAC Softly Lit (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Maybelline Sandy Sensation (115) (LE) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Maybelline Life's a Peach (P, $4.49) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). MAC Fashion Whim (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Girl on Board (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented (90% similar). MAC Innocent (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Flair for Finery (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Naked Dolly (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). YSL Nude Carat (No. 20) (P, $32.00) is cooler (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds (L.S.D.) (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Hourglass Imagine (P, $28.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Summer Sweetheart (LE, $15.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Zephyr (377) (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Bardot Beige (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). NARS Striptease (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Peachstock (LE, $15.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Water Deities (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). MAC Chic Supremacy (LE, $15.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (80% similar).

MAC Pure Bred Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Pure Bred Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad ($46.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a set of warmer neutral shades with a more frosted finish overall. It’s a good palette, though everything is dupable, so you may find you have colors like it. I think you’ll want to add-in your go-to brow bone highlighter, as using the lightest shade in this was pretty stark due to the high-shine finish of it! The Mineralize Eyeshadow formula is supposed to have “low to medium coverage” when applied dry and “more intense coverage and colour” when used wet. The texture of these felt a lot smoother than the majority of MAC’s Mineralize Eyeshadow range–they had a really silky, finely-milled consistency that adhered well to the skin and blended out nicely.
