MAC Carousel, Candy Yum Yum, Raring to Go Lipglasses

MAC Carousel Lipglass ($10.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is a bright, cotton candy pink with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered with very little streaking, but the color sunk into lip lines, which may be a deal-breaker for some. The texture was light-medium in weight, moderately tacky, but it didn’t feel too heavy. This shade lasted for five hours and was slightly hydrating for me. Anastasia Dusty Lilac (P) is darker (90% similar). MAC Carousel (LE, $15.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Pink Nouveau (LE, $15.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Patentpink (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Pure Silliness (LE, $15.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Obsessed (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Illamasqua Indulge (P, $22.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Saint Germain (P, $15.00) is lighter, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Fashion Punch, Lots of Laughs, Short & Snappy Lipglasses

MAC Fashion Punch Lipglass ($10.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is a medium peachy-brown with warm undertones and gold pearl. The coverage was semi-opaque, but the creamier finish made this one noticeably settle into lip lines, though it went on evenly (which doesn’t always happen with this type of color or product!). I felt like the shininess of the gloss helped to disguise some of the settling from a normal viewing distance. This shade wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Spanking Haute (LE, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). Surratt Beauty Au Naturelle (P, $32.00) is brighter (95% similar). MAC Overspiced (LE, $15.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). NARS Instant Crash (LE, $26.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Kinky (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Satisfaction (214) (DC, $28.00) is darker (90% similar). Maybelline Charming Cocoa (125) (LE) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Undressed (P) is lighter (85% similar). Chanel Sensuel (11) (P, $34.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Fashion Punch (LE, $15.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
