MAC Khaaannnn! & Warp Speed Ahead Lipglasses

MAC Khaaannnn! Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “berry with red reflects.” It’s a subdued, medium-dark pink with cool undertones and pink and red sparkle. It had semi-sheer color coverage that applied evenly; it is the type of coverage level where the natural lip color comes through noticeably, so it can look very different from person to person based on the natural coloring of one’s lips. The texture was light-medium in weight, moderately tacky, but it was comfortable to wear and didn’t emphasize lip lines. This shade lasted for four hours on me and was lightly hydrating. MAC Itsy Bitsy (P, $10.00) is cooler (90% similar). Maybelline Lilac Lumi (P, $4.49) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Gucci Beauty Potent Violet (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Bidi Bidi Bom Bom (LE, $15.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Lovechild (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). Dior Dolly Pink (453) (P, $29.50) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Foxglove (LE) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Live Long and Prosper & The Enemy Within Lipsticks

MAC Live Long and Prosper Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as an “icy rosy champagne [with a Frost finish].” It’s a muted, light-medium copper rose with warm undertones and multi-colored shimmer. It had semi-sheer color coverage, so this one is likely to look different from person to person, as I find it looks like a pinker color on my lips due to the way color layers over my natural lip color. As a result, I do think it’s rather wearable on its own, but the sheerness would also make it work as a layering shade. I just wish it was described as a sheer product. The color wore well for three and a half hours and had a slight amount of settling into my lip lines. It was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC All I Want (LE, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Lights Out (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Whip (P, $17.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Trick (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar).

Colour Pop PYT (P, $6.00) is darker (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Rory (LE, $35.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Tanarama (P, $17.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar).

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

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. Guerlain Petrouchka #1 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Sephora Minx (LE) is less shimmery (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). Colour Pop Fringe (DC, $5.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Peach Sorbet (P, $12.00) is darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Famous (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Dior Golden Flower #3 (LE) is darker (95% 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). Anastasia Chic (LE, $12.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Best Makeup (LE, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
