MAC x Charlotte Olympia Cream Colour Bases

MAC Golden Age Cream Colour Base
MAC Golden Age Cream Colour Base

MAC Golden Age Cream Colour Base ($23.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “metallic antique bronze.” It’s a shimmering, golden bronze with warm undertones and a fine, pearly shimmer-sheen finish. Unless heavily layered, it had a much more subdued sheen than overtly shimmery. On eyes, it lasted for five hours before creasing, and on cheeks, it lasted for six and a half hours before migrating noticeably. The texture is creamy, highly emollient, and never fully sets, so it retains a dewier finish overall. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage, as described. There was something about the base color that seemed harder to even out on the skin, though. This shade did include a warning that it is “not for use in the lip area” (Cream Colour Bases are multi-tasking products). Laura Mercier Seduction (P, $44.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Candyman (P, $8.00) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Casino (P, $36.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Paradise Cove (P, $8.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Burberry Summer Glow (P, $48.00) is warmer (85% similar). NARS Laguna (P) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Sepia Cream Colour Base ($23.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “dirty chocolate-brown.” It’s a muted, dark taupe brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a dewy sheen. It had semi-sheer, buildable color payoff with a lightweight, emollient texture that never fully dries down, so it has a wetter finish on the skin but doesn’t look greasy. On eyes, this lasted for five and a half hours, and on cheeks (I used it as a contour), it lasted for six and a half hours. Tarte Contour Deep (Tarteist) (LE) is lighter, more muted, less glossy (90% similar). Kat Von D Subconscious (P) is less glossy (90% similar). LORAC Deep Contour (P) is less glossy (90% similar). NYX Hollow (P, $5.00) is warmer, less glossy (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Medium (P) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Coffee Walnut (LE, $20.00) is warmer (85% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Medium (P, $44.00) is lighter, less glossy (85% similar). LORAC Medium Contour (P) is lighter, less glossy (85% similar). Smashbox Contour (P) is lighter, cooler, less glossy (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Bronze Me, Flush’d, Glo Up Super Shock Cheeks

ColourPop Bronze Me Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Bronze Me Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Bronze Me Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “warm bronze in a matte finish.” It’s a medium-dark brown with warm, orange undertones and a satin finish–there’s a light sheen and very, very fine shimmer. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, blendable consistency that sat well on the skin and played well with bare skin as well as liquid foundation. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours before fading. Stila Sending My Love Bronzer (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals Warmth (LE) is less shimmery, more muted (90% similar).

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

ColourPop Flush’d Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “rusty deepened peach in a matte finish.” It’s a medium-dark, orange-coral with hints of warm, red undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage that was fairly blendable but one of the less easily blended-out shades that I’ve tried in the formula. It’s best patted on with fingertips and lightly swept with the side of the finger for blending, but it didn’t apply well with a stippling brush for me. It wore for eight hours. The Estee Edit Coy Coral (02) (P, $28.00) is lighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Never Been Kissed (LE, $8.00) is cooler (85% similar). MAC Passion for Colour (LE, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar).

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

ColourPop Glo Up Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “rich gold with flashes of golden copper.” It’s a muted, medium-dark bronze with warm, copper undertones and a frosted, golden sheen. There was something in it that was almost mauve-like applied. It had good pigmentation with a soft, lightly emollient consistency that was smooth and easily blended on the skin. The shimmer didn’t emphasize pores. This shade wore well for eight hours on me. Makeup Geek Ignite (P, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). Cover FX Candlelight (P, $34.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Bronze (P, $46.00) is darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Santos (LE, $8.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar).

MAC x Zac Posen Haute Contour Powder Blush Duo

MAC Haute Contour Powder Blush Duo
MAC Haute Contour Powder Blush Duo

MAC Haute Contour Powder Blush Duo ($29.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a split-pan product with one shade being more of your traditional bronzer and the other being a pink-coral. Neither shade performed well, but the more blush-like shade had a really firm, hard press that required jabbing at the powder’s surface to get decent color out of it. This is at least the third time in recent memory that MAC has released a mid-tone brown/pink-coral blush duo, and I wonder why they haven’t been able to jump out of the box–it’s becoming like NARS Laguna/Orgasm over here.

Haute Contour (Bronzer) is a muted, medium brown with warm, orange-yellow tones and a satin finish. It was firmly packed in the pan, which made getting color out of it a little more challenging, and when I did, some of it came away in larger chunks–almost like sand. The consistency was fairly blendable on the skin, and the harder chunks dusted away (didn’t notice them applied). It lasted for seven hours before fading. MAC Sunny Side (LE, $32.00) is brighter (90% similar). Guerlain Natural / Brunettes (03) (P, $53.00) is lighter (90% similar). bareMinerals The Skinny Dip (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Dolce and Gabbana Desert (P, $51.00) is darker (90% similar). bareMinerals The High Dive (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Naked Flushed Bronzer (P) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Haute Contour (Blush) is a light-medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a golden shimmer. You wouldn’t know what the color was by going off the swatch, but with enough jabbing and prodding of the powder, I was able to get enough powder to loosen to apply to cheeks to show it in a photo. The shimmer didn’t emphasize pores, and the color itself lasted for six and a half hours before fading on me. NYX Rose Gold (P, $6.50) is more pigmented, warmer (90% similar). MAC Stereo Rose (LE, $32.00) is more pigmented, warmer (90% similar). Makeup Geek Romance (P, $9.99) is more shimmery, more pigmented (90% similar). NYX Menage a Trois (P, $15.00) is more pigmented, warmer (85% similar). NARS Orgasm (P, $30.00) is more pigmented, cooler (85% similar). Becca Lychee/Opal (P, $27.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

NARS Cheek Studio Blush Palette (Spring 2016)

NARS Cheek Studio Blush Palette
NARS Cheek Studio Blush Palette

NARS Cheek Studio Blush Palette ($65.00 for 1.01 oz.) includes a highlighting/contour duo, bronzer, and four blushes. Three of the blushes are exclusive to the palette with one blush being part of an exclusive offering for Sephora VIB Rouge members (as a single). Strangely, the Paloma duo, which is available in the permanent range (see my original review here), was very chalky and clumpy in the palette–it felt smooth and soft to the touch, but it looked dry and chalky on the skin. I wish NARS (and other brands guilty of it) wouldn’t include one-size-fits-all contouring products; matte highlighters are also difficult to make inclusive (without the shimmer, it is hard to salvage one that really doesn’t work for one’s skin tone).

Paloma Highlight is a pale beige with subtle, neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It was sheer, chalky, powdery, and looked all those things on the skin. It’s harder to tell the wear on a shade like this on my skin tone, but based on how powdery the skin looked in the area I applied it, it seemed to wear about six hours. Chanel Jardin de Camelias (LE, $65.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain Mythic (P, $59.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Blush Pink (LE, $35.50) is darker (90% similar). YSL Golden Contouring Highlight (P) is more shimmery (90% similar). Hourglass Ethereal Light (P, $45.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). YSL Rosy Contouring Highlight (P) is more shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Highlight (Tarteist) (LE) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). NARS Nico (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). NARS Highlight (P) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Paloma Contour is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm rosy tones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer coverage with a firmer consistency that was hard to blend out or build-up in coverage. It wore for six and a half hours on me. NARS Gienah Highlight (P) is darker (95% similar). MAC Sculpt (P, $16.50) is cooler (95% similar). Viseart Sculpting #2 (P) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Harmony (P, $22.00) is cooler (95% similar). NYX Sculpt (P, $5.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Natura (P, $37.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Scone (LE, $25.00) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Madly (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Grisaille (P, $32.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Tarte Sculpt (P) is warmer (90% similar). Burberry Earthy (P, $42.00) is more shimmery, cooler (95% similar). Kat Von D Sombre (P) is cooler (80% similar). Too Faced Chocolate Soleil (LE) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Aphrodisiac (P, $8.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). Too Faced Medium Cocoa (P) is more shimmery, lighter, better quality (80% similar). YSL Rosy Contouring Contour (P) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Laguna is a medium, yellowed brown with warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. This version was firmer, sheerer, and harder to blend on the skin than many others that I have tried. It is similar in color, but the performance is sub-par. It lasted for seven hours on me. Too Faced Spice (LE) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Nude on Board (LE, $30.00) is more muted (90% similar). Too Faced Chocolate Soleil (LE) is darker (95% similar). IT Cosmetics Warm Radiance (P, $34.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented, cooler (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze (Original) (P) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Matte Bronze (LE, $70.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Park Ave. Princess #2 (LE) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). MAC Sun Dipped (LE, $30.00) is warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals Warmth (LE) is lighter (90% similar).

Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Cheek Studio I is a light-medium, cool-toned pink with a dusting of gold shimmer over a mostly matte finish. It looks primarily like a matte blush on the skin as the shimmer is fine, and as it is buffed into the skin, the finish is less flat-looking. The texture was lightly powdery but blendable, and the color lasted for seven hours. Makeup Geek Promise Ring (P, $10.00) is darker (95% similar). Makeup Geek First Love (P, $9.99) is less shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain Carousel (LE, $62.00) is less pigmented (90% similar). Hourglass Ethereal Glow (P, $35.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). NYX Pastel Chic (P, $6.50) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Clyde (Light) (P) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Cheek Studio II is a light-medium, peachy-brown with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t too firm or too loose in the pan. The color applied well and lasted for eight hours. Revlon Naughty Nude (006) (P, $9.99) is more shimmery (95% similar). Becca Fig/Opal (P, $27.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar).

Marc Jacobs Beauty Shameless (220) (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Charlotte Tilbury The Climax (P, $40.00) is darker, brighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Cheek Studio III is a medium-dark, copper-brown with warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a lightly dry texture that applied decently but needed some extra love to blend the color out evenly. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours. MAC Peachtwist (P, $22.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Perfectly Lit (LE, $32.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Laura Geller Pink Grapefruit (P, $28.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Non-Fiction (LE, $8.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).

MAC x Ellie Goulding Halcyon Days Palette

MAC Halcyon Days Face Kit
MAC Halcyon Days Face Kit

MAC Halcyon Days Face Kit ($44.00 for 0.45 oz.) includes four Cream Colour Bases and one Blot Powder/Pressed. I am totally baffled by the inclusion of the Blot Powder, given that it is in shade “Medium Dark,” which will obviously not suit many skin tones. Why not a powder highlighter instead? Two of the Cream Colour Bases (Tint and Root) are part of the permanent range. If you’re unfamiliar with the Cream Colour Base formula, it’s pretty much a versatile cream-based product that can be sheer, buildable, creamy, or shimmery and can be used on the eyes, lips, or face (some shades have restricted usages). They can be used alone or over products (including powder) and are supposed to last for eight hours on face and body (with “lasting wear for hours on eyes”).

Medium Dark is a light-medium beige with a matte finish. It is similar to the color of my forearm, but it is lighter than face. The product itself is really, really chalky and looks powdery on my normal-to-dry skin. I’m not oily, so it was hard to determine if it was really helping combat that, but it seemed to extend the wear of my base by an hour or two.

Wished I Stayed is described as a “light cream pearl.” It’s a golden beige with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage with a lightweight, creamy consistency that glided on and blended out well. As a cheek highlighter, it lasted for seven hours on me. Stila Sending My Love Highlighter (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar). Becca Opal (P, $41.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Becca Opal (P, $38.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Smashbox Shimmer (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Hot Sand (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Natasha Denona Moonstone (59M) (P, $29.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Highlighter (LE, $32.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). bareMinerals The Brilliant Sunset (LE, $26.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tint is described as a “soft peachy brown with shimmer.” It’s a muted, medium brown with warm, rosy undertones and a soft pearl shimmer. It had semi-opaque to opaque coverage, though the creamy, emollient consistency makes it easy to apply less or really diffuse it for sheerer coverage. The color lasted for seven and a half hours as a blush. LORAC Pink Bronze (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Golden Sun (280) (P, $45.00) is lighter, cooler, less glossy (90% similar). Chanel Accent (84) (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). MAC Love Joy (P, $27.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Every Time You Go is described as a “creamy peachy pink.” It’s a light-medium pink with warm undertones and a creamy finish. It had semi-sheer to opaque pigmentation with a creamy, light-medium thick consistency–thicker than the other two–and has no shimmer. It blended out well on the skin and wore for seven and a half hours as a blush. Guerlain Ors et Merveilles #7 (LE) is darker, less glossy (90% similar).

Root is described as a “red taupey brown with shimmer.” It’s a dark, taupe brown with strong, gray shimmer with a warmer undertone. The more opaque it is applied, the grayer it appears, but the more it is sheered out, the browner it looks. It had semi-sheer to opaque pigmentation with a lightweight, emollient texture that glided and blended well on the skin without becoming patchy. This shade lasted for seven and a half hours on my cheeks. MAC Pressed Amber (LE, $27.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Notorious (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar).

Too Faced Le Grand Chateau

Too Faced Le Grand Chateau Holiday Set
Too Faced Le Grand Chateau Holiday Set

Too Faced Le Grand Chateau Holiday Set ($49.00 for 1.46 oz.) includes three palettes, plus a travel-sized Better Than Sex Mascara. Each palette contains six eyeshadows and a face product (either a blush or bronzer). It’s a decent set with some hits and misses, and in general, there was just a dustiness/powderiness to some shades that resulted in either slightly sheerer color payoff or shorter wear time (things that a decent primer should fix quite well).
