MAC Dreampot, Dew, Punk Couture Lipsticks

MAC Dreampot Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “light candy blue [with a Matte finish].” It’s a bright, cyan blue with cool undertones and a satin finish–there was a slight sheen to it. It had good pigmentation with a moderately creamy texture that glided on well and didn’t tug on the lips, but it could have applied more evenly. The color seemed to get in some of the lip lines on my lower lips after three hours of wear, though it lasted for nearly five in total. It was neither drying nor hydrating. Make Up For Ever C602 (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Colour Pop Mr. Blonde (LE, $6.00) is darker, less glossy (85% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pool Boy (P, $18.00) is lighter (85% similar). NYX Blue Velvet (P, $6.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sunday Funday: MAC Viva Glam Lipsticks Photos & Swatches

MAC Viva Glam Lipsticks
MAC Viva Glam Lipsticks

There are six permanent shades of MAC Viva Glam Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.), and frankly, they’re even prettier than I remembered (the one that I remember mostly clearly has always been Viva Glam I, as that was the only one I wore regularly in the past). I’m totally blown away by Viva Glam III and IV now! What makes Viva Glam lipsticks special is 100% of the selling price is donated to the MAC AIDS Fund; that’s not a portion, that’s not proceeds, that’s 100% of the selling price, which makes it one of the better charitable beauty products… well, ever.

MAC Deep Rooted, In My Fashion, In the Spirit Lipsticks

MAC Deep Rooted Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “brown taupe [with a Matte finish].” It’s a medium-dark taupe with gray-leanings and a semi-matte finish. The consistency was creamy enough to apply easily and evenly, while it had mostly opaque color payoff. On me, it wore well for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Colour Pop Kapow (LE, $6.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Stavros (P, $35.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
