MAC x Helmut Newton Point ‘n’ Shoot Eyeshadow Quad

MAC x Helmut Newton Point ‘n’ Shoot Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Point ‘n’ Shoot Eyeshadow Quad ($32.00 for 0.19 oz.) contains four neutral shades–yellowy beige, grayish taupe, brownish taupe, and deep black. The first three shades were nice–pigmented, blendable, long-wearing–but the last shade was very difficult to blend out as it was a much firmer, stiffer product in the pan.

Real Fantasy is a light, buttery yellow with soft, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth texture that wasn’t too firm or too powdery. It blended out easily on the skin, and it wore well for seven and a half hours on me. Tarte Free Spirit (LE)(100% similar). Sephora Whitewashed (P, $12.00)(100% similar). Kat Von D Entomology (P)(100% similar). Urban Decay Pre-Game (P, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS Look Closer I (LE, $25.00) is darker (95% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Naked Truth #2 (P, $2.29) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Vintage Lace (LE, $16.00) is more muted (95% similar). IT Cosmetics Hope (P) is brighter (95% similar).

Anastasia Buttery (LE, $12.00) is brighter (95% similar). Anastasia Lace (P, $12.00) is darker (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Social Butterfly #1 (P) is lighter (95% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Hard Currency is a medium-dark gray-leaning taupe with cool undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was soft, just a touch dusty, but it was blendable, didn’t sheer out too readily, and didn’t look dry or powdery on the skin. It wore well for eight hours on me. MAC Tailor Grey (P, $18.50) is glossier (95% similar). Clinique Portobello (P, $15.00) is warmer (95% similar). Kat Von D Smoke (Base) (P) is cooler (95% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Deep Taupe (LE) is cooler (95% similar). Makeup Geek Bedrock (P, $6.00) is cooler (95% similar). theBalm #25 (P, $6.50) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Copperplate (P, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). Blackbird Cosmetics Smudge (P, $8.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Smoked Cocoa #2 (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Influential is a dark taupe-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, but the texture was firmer in the pan, which made it harder to work with and blend out on the lid. The color started to fade after eight hours of wear. MAC Persuade (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Bowl Out (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Downtown (LE, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Ashbury (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Licorice Lane (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). Laura Mercier Earth (LE, $23.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Concrete (P, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Mystery (P, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Point ‘n’ Shoot is a deep black with neutral-to-cool undertones paired with a matte finish. While it wasn’t Carbon, it was still Carbon-like: stiff in the pan and difficult to use–the color skipped and dragged, turned patchy when blended, and took a lot of effort just to manipulate into something decent. I had the best luck using a very feathery brush and lightly tapping it into the crease and then using Influential to soften and blend the edges. This shade wore for eight hours on me before fading. Too Faced Black Coffee (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). theBalm Serious (P, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar). Makeup Atelier Natural Brown #5 (P) is darker, cooler, better quality (95% similar).

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Nude Lip Gloss Kit

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Nude Lip Gloss Kit
MAC Nutcracker Sweet Nude Lip Gloss Kit

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Nude Lip Gloss Kit ($35.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) contains three Cremesheen Glasses and one Dazzleglass in variations on “nude.” Cremesheen Glass is supposed to be creamy, hydrating, and sheerer. Dazzleglass is supposed to have medium coverage with a hydrating, non-tacky formula filled with lots of shimmer/sparkle. In general, Cremesheen Glass tends to have a creamier, milkier quality to it, which makes it comfortable and hydrating to wear, but it often looks streaky, settles into lip lines, and is shorter wearing. Dazzleglass is moderately tacky, thicker, and wears longer and has tons of sparkle, but it is more semi-sheer in coverage. What I’ve always found funny about the holiday gloss sets is that they’re called “minis,” but they’re larger than full-size.

Value

  • Cremesheen Glass: $21.00 for 0.09 fl. oz. or $233.33/oz.
  • Dazzleglass: $20.00 for 0.06 fl. oz. or $333.33/oz.
  • Set Value: $70.00 worth of Cremesheen Glass, $33.33 worth of Dazzleglass
  • Total Value: $103.33

Fashion Whim is a light-medium peach with warm, orange undertones paired with a cream finish and very, very fine pearl. It had semi-sheer coverage that didn’t appear streaky on the lips, but the milkier consistency caused the gloss to settle into every lip line. The gloss felt creamy, hydrating, and comfortable to wear over the two and a half hours it lasted. Urban Decay Midnight Cowgirl (P, $26.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Flair for Finery (LE, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Chic Supremacy (LE, $15.00) is cooler (95% similar). Buxom White Russian (P, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Maybelline Sandy Sensation (115) (LE) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Happiness (LE, $22.00) is cooler (95% similar). Estee Lauder Moroccan Heat (LE, $36.00) is darker (95% similar). Sephora Perfect Nude (04) (P, $12.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Pleasure First (LE, $20.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC On the Scene (LE, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar).

MAC Innocent (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Peachstock (LE, $15.00) is lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Naked Dolly (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Super Nude (137) (LE, $34.00) is darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Pure Delight is a muted, medium peachy-brown with warm undertones and fine gold pearl. It seemed more washed out once I applied it to the lips, which is something that can happen as the gloss itself was semi-sheer and allowed for the natural lip color to come through. The color pulled into lip lines noticeably, though the more subdued color made it harder to notice from a normal viewing distance compared to Fashion Whim. This shade wore well for two and a half hours and was moisturizing. Chanel Super Nude (137) (LE, $34.00) is warmer (95% similar). NARS Chelsea Girls (P, $26.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Nooner (P, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Calypso Beat (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). NARS Vida Loca (LE, $26.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Mystery (P, $30.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Persistent Peach (P, $19.50) is brighter, more pigmented, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Nutty & Naughty is a soft, pinky plum with subtle, warm undertones and pink and gold pearl. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on evenly, but it still had some color that settled into lip lines. The consistency was creamy, smooth, and comfortable to wear over the two and a half hours it lasted. Christian Louboutin Beaute Altareva (P, $85.00) is more pigmented (95% similar). Chanel Innocent (14) (LE, $34.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Sephora Pretty Princess (LE, $14.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). NARS Dolce Vita (DC, $25.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Flushed (P, $19.00) is cooler (90% similar). NARS Dolce Vita (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Maybelline Lust for Mauve (535) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery (85% similar). Dior Ciel Rose (449) (P, $35.00) is darker, brighter, warmer (85% similar). NARS Corsica (LE, $26.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Prancin’ Dancin’ is a soft, medium copper with warm, brown undertones and pink, gold, and silver sparkle. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage–mostly coverage by shimmer/sparkle–with a very high shine. The consistency was thick, tacky (I have no idea how this could be touted as non-tacky) but smooth. It wore well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Pale Moon (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Social Light (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). Dior Etincelante (432) (P, $29.50) is warmer (90% similar).

Dior Ambre Lumiere (227) (P, $29.50) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Happiness (LE, $22.00) is lighter (80% similar). Anastasia Gilded (-, $16.00) is warmer (80% similar).

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Nude Lip Bag

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Nude Lip Bag
MAC Nutcracker Sweet Nude Lip Bag

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Nude Lip Bag ($39.50 for 0.30 oz.) includes a full-size lipstick, Vamplify Lipgloss, and Lip Pencil. The Vamplify and Lip Pencil are repromotes, while the lipstick is new. I verified the color consistency between the two versions of the Vamplify Lipgloss, and then I tested the lipstick and lip pencil for wear but did not retest the Vamplify Lipgloss for wear.

Value

  • Vamplify Lipgloss: $20.00 for 0.16 oz. or $125.00/oz.
  • Lipstick: $17.00 for 0.10 oz. or $170.00/oz.
  • Pro Longwear Lip Pencil: $21.00 for 0.04 oz. or $525.00/oz.
  • Total Value: $58.00

Tuned In is a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with warm gold pearl. It had mostly opaque coverage, while the consistency was very smooth and lightweight. The color applied evenly and didn’t settle into lip lines as it wore on. For me, this gloss stayed on well for five hours and was nicely hydrating. Marc Jacobs Beauty Love Drunk (320) (P, $28.00) is lighter, less pigmented (90% similar). MAC Pamela (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). MAC Looks Like Sin (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, less pigmented (85% similar). Cle de Peau Chenille (12) (P, $48.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Chanel Audace (20) (LE, $34.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). NYX Chocolate Crepe (P, $5.99) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Shooting Stars (316) (DC, $28.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Liqueur (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Magic Spell is a subdued, mauvey brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. The lipstick had mostly opaque color payoff that went on evenly. It had a Cremesheen finish, so it had a more luminous finish but a clingier feel overall. It lasted for four hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Smoked Almond (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Touch (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Uber Suede (P, $24.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Chanel Script (218) (P, $37.00) is more shimmery, brighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Among the Fireflies (LE, $17.00) is warmer (85% similar). Smashbox Cognac (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Broken (P, $17.00) is warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Amulet (P, $17.00) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

In Control is a muted, medium-dark rosy-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a waxy consistency that was easy enough to maneuver around the edges of the lips but did not work as well for filling in color, as it looked uneven and tugged quite a bit. Once on, the color lasted for eight hours, as described, but it was rather drying on its own. MAC Morning Coffee (P, $19.50) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Manic (P, $20.00) is brighter, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Rush (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, cooler (85% similar). MAC Cranberry (DC, $17.50) is brighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Red Lip Bag

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Red Lip Bag
MAC Nutcracker Sweet Red Lip Bag

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Red Lip Bag ($39.50 for 0.30 oz.) includes a full-size lipstick, Vamplify Lipgloss, and Lip Pencil. The Vamplify and Lip Pencil are repromotes, while the lipstick is new (but it is a matte red, so it is definitely dupable). I verified the color consistency between the two repromotes but did not retest them for wear or re-swatch them, so the lip swatches and review are from the last time I wore them.

Value

  • Vamplify Lipgloss: $20.00 for 0.16 oz. or $125.00/oz.
  • Lipstick: $17.00 for 0.10 oz. or $170.00/oz.
  • Pro Longwear Lip Pencil: $21.00 for 0.04 oz. or $525.00/oz.
  • Total Value: $58.00

Suggestive is a bold, bright, medium-dark red with cool, blue undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had good pigmentation, but there’s some translucency so the natural lip color will come through still. It applied really well with even coverage and never looked streaky and somehow managed not to slip into lip lines until after four to five hours of wear. The color lasted for five hours in all and was hydrating over time. MAC Utterly Tart (LE, $15.00) is darker, more muted (95% similar). MAC Tease Don't Touch (LE, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC RiRi Woo (LE, $15.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Send Me Sailing (LE, $15.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Opera (LE, $15.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Smart Aleck (LE, $20.00) is brighter (90% similar). MAC Hot/Cold (LE, $15.00) is lighter, more muted (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Red Corset (P, $52.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (90% similar). Chanel Crushed Cherry (DC, $30.00) is more muted (90% similar).

Tom Ford Beauty Exposed (P, $52.00) is more shimmery, darker, more muted (90% similar). Giorgio Armani #400 Four Hundred (P, $38.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). NARS Burning Love (LE, $26.00) is lighter (85% similar). Cle de Peau Lempicka Red (18) (P, $48.00) is darker, more muted, glossier (85% similar). MAC Gumdrop (LE, $20.00) is lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay 69 (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Candy Cane is a bright, medium-dark red with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had very nearly opaque color that went on evenly, though the texture was a bit firmer in the tube, so it tugged slightly as I applied it and definitely needed more pressure to go on. The consistency was thinner and clung more to the lips, but it was still going strong after six hours of wear. The formula was somewhat drying over time. MAC So Good For You (LE, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M401 (P, $22.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Ronnie Red (LE, $17.00) is lighter, warmer, glossier (95% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Trust in Red is a slightly muted, medium pinky-red with cooler undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was drier and harder to apply to the lips evenly, so it was most comfortable used to line the lips rather than to fill them in. The color was similar to the last version I had, but the texture was drier. I did retest this one for wear, and it lasted for over eight hours but was drying. Urban Decay 69 (P, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Ruby Woo (P, $17.50)(100% similar). Urban Decay 714 (LE, $20.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Urban Decay Wonderland (LE, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Freehand (LE, $15.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Cherry (P, $17.50) is darker (85% similar).

MAC Nude Nutcracker Sweet Lipstick Kit

MAC Nude Nutcracker Sweet Lipstick Kit
MAC Nude Nutcracker Sweet Lipstick Kit

MAC Nude Nutcracker Sweet Lipstick Kit ($35.00 for 0.24 oz.) contains four, miniature sized lipsticks–all shades from the permanent range. This was the “weakest” of the three sets, as I had issues with color settling into lip lines with three of the four shades. I liked the variety in colors/tones in the set, and I liked that “nude” actually meant a greater variety of neutral shades instead of what is often seen as just light beige.

The lipsticks come in a small box with a plastic, pull-out drawer. Each lipstick is 0.06 oz., so it’s 60% of the amount you get in a full-sized lipstick, and I think the value is there–it’s not a value-packed set, but you get more than you’re paying for and get four shades for a little more than the price of two. If you fall in love with one shade, you can repurchase it later as well, which is always nice. I didn’t have any issues using the minis directly from the tube, as sometimes minis can break more easily. The shades were very consistent with the individual permanent versions I have, and as I just swatched MAC’s permanent line a few months ago, the lip swatches and full face photos are from then (the swatches are of the actual minis).

Value

  • Lipstick: $17.00 for 0.10 oz. or $170.00/oz.
  • Total Value: $40.80

Crème Cup is a light-medium pink with neutral- undertones and a glossy, luminous finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly, but it pulled into lip lines and left “lines” if I pressed my lips together as the consistency was more emollient and slid around on the lips. This shade lasted for three and a half hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Angel (P, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Heartless (P, $17.00) is cooler, less glossy (95% similar). Urban Decay Native (P, $17.00) is darker, more muted (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Austin (P, $35.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Last Call (LE, $5.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Light English Red (LE, $30.00) is warmer (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Nouvelle Vogue is a medium, rosy pink with neutral-to-cool undertones and a satin finish. It had rich, opaque color payoff that applied smoothly and evenly, though some of the color seemed to settle into lip lines initially. I don’t think it was too noticeable from a normal viewing distance, as I only noticed it when I edited the close-up photos. The consistency was velvety and glided on with ease, while it was comfortable to wear over the five hours it lasted. It felt a bit drying after four hours of wear. Bobbi Brown Spring Pink (P, $35.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Clinique Plum Pop (P, $18.00) is warmer (95% similar). Tarte Fomo (P, $20.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Bite Beauty Sweety (LE, $24.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). Bite Beauty Macaroon (P, $24.00) is darker (90% similar).

Kinda Sexy is a medium-dark, pinky-peach with warm, brown undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, light-medium weight consistency that glided on without tugging, but it had a heavier look on the lips that emphasized lip lines a bit. Whenever I smiled, you could see the color gather in lip lines. This shade lasted for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.
