MAC With Gusto, Sway to the Sound, Saucy Miss, Acting on Impulse Vamplify Lipglosses

MAC With Gusto Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is a deep, muted burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and and a lightly pearlized finish. The texture was lightweight, comfortable to wear, and spread easily across the lips, but the semi-opaque coverage made it more apparent just how much color settled into lip lines. It wore well for five hours and was lightly moisturizing. Anastasia Potion (P) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Anastasia Venom (P) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Dark as Night (P, $19.50) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Lasting Achievement (P, $19.50) is warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Apocalypse (P, $26.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar).

MAC Anything But Demure, Fab Tested, Absolute Score, Smart Aleck Vamplify Lipglosses

MAC Anything But Demure Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium mauve-pink with warm undertones and a smattering of fine, gold pearl. It had good pigmentation that went on evenly, though I noticed some of the gloss welled up in lip lines. It wasn’t too noticeable from a normal viewing distance, though. The gloss was comfortable to wear and wore well for four and a half hours. The formula was hydrating for me. Tarte Double Tap (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Tarte Snap (P, $20.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Anastasia Vintage (P) is lighter (90% similar). Sephora Earth & Fire (35) (P, $12.00) is lighter, less pigmented (85% similar). MAC Deelight (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer, lower quality (85% similar). NARS Chelsea Girls (P, $26.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

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).

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).

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). Charlotte Tilbury Hot Emily (P, $32.00) is lighter (90% similar).
