MAC Irresistibly Charming/Violet Lipgloss Set

MAC Irresistibly Charming/Pink Lipgloss Set
MAC Irresistibly Charming/Pink Lipgloss Set

MAC Irresistibly Charming/Pink Lipgloss Set ($35.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes one shade of Dazzleglass and three shades of Cremesheen Glass. For long-time collectors, this will be your best bet between the three lipgloss sets as three of the shades are new (Narcissus is a repromote). MAC’s holiday lipgloss sets are actually one of their best values, because while the tubes may look short, they actually contain 0.08 oz. each! But this is the crazy part: full-sized Dazzleglasses are a mere 0.06 oz., while full-sized Cremesheen Glasses are 0.09 oz. The set contains $26.67 worth of Dazzleglass and $53.33 worth of Cremesheen Glass, which makes the set have a total value of $80.00. The holiday sets are a great way to restock your glosses, if you like the formula or shades. The sets often repeat from year to year and have a mix of often-repromoted-limited-editions as well as permanent options. Cremesheen Glass is sheerer, lightweight, comfortable without being sticky, with short wear time (one to three hours). Dazzleglass is thicker, glossier, sparkly (or glittery), sticky, and typically sheer but have longer wear time (two to four hours).

Like Magic is described as a “clear gloss with silver reflects pearlized pigments.” It’s a clear gloss with good dosage of silver and pink sparkle. It adds noticeable sparkle and glossiness to the lips, and I think it’s wearable on its own, but it could also work to layer with your favorite lipstick. It wore well for three hours and had a light-medium consistency with some tackiness. MAC Pleasure Principle (LE, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Like Venus (P, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Impossibly Sweet (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Rose (LE, $24.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Purpurine (LE, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Be an Angel, Darling is described as a “baby pink with shimmer.” It’s a light, pastel pink with fine white shimmer. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a glossy, high-shine finish, but some of the milky pink color settled into lip lines. The shimmer helps to make it less noticeable, but it may be better over a lipstick. The gloss lasted for two hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Oyster Girl (P, $17.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Gold (P, $24.00) is warmer (90% similar). Maybelline Blushing Petal (505) (P, $8.99) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Demure (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Sugarrimmed (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Look Who's Here (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (85% similar). Maybelline Petal Plush (100) (P, $8.99) is lighter, more pigmented (85% similar). MAC Light English Red (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Date with Violet is described as a “mid-tone mauvey violet.” It’s a soft, medium pinky-mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation with some milkiness, which led to color pulling into lip lines, though it wasn’t as bad as some shades of Cremesheen Glass (but it’s there). The texture is lightweight, creamy, comfortable with a non-sticky texture. On me, the gloss lasted for two hours. MAC Dress the Part (LE, $20.00) is more muted (95% similar). Urban Decay Obsessed (DC, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar). Urban Decay Lovechild (DC, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Tasmania (P, $26.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Sugar Pink (P, $45.00) is brighter (90% similar). MAC Lots of Laughs (LE, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Narcissus is described as an “intense orchid purple.” It’s a medium-dark, pink-tinted purple with a cream finish. This shade had semi-sheer pigmentation with a creamy, lightweight consistency that was comfortable on. It doesn’t apply evenly, which is its major issue, followed by shorter wear at three hours. Make Up For Ever 500 Lilac (P, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Dilly Dazzle (P, $10.00) is cooler (90% similar). Cle de Peau Fast Lane (15) (P, $48.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever 501 Purple (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Love You Big Time (P, $10.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC How Chic is This (LE, $20.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). YSL Pourpre Preview (16) (P, $34.00) is warmer (85% similar). Bite Beauty Nine (Watercolor) (LE) is darker, less pigmented, lower quality (85% similar). MAC Snuggle Up (LE, $20.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Bittersweet (P, $26.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Heroine (P, $17.00) is brighter, cooler (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Truth or Dare (208) (DC, $28.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). MAC Itchy & Scratchy & Sexy (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery (80% similar).

MAC Irresistibly Charming/Pink Lipgloss Set

MAC Irresistibly Charming/Pink Lipgloss Set ($35.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes one shade of Dazzleglass and three shades of Cremesheen Glass. All of the shades have been released before; Sugarrimmed and Just Superb are part of the current range from what I can tell. MAC’s holiday lipgloss sets are actually one of their best values, because while the tubes may look short, they actually contain 0.08 oz. each! But this is the crazy part: full-sized Dazzleglasses are a mere 0.06 oz., while full-sized Cremesheen Glasses are 0.09 oz. The set contains $26.67 worth of Dazzleglass and $53.33 worth of Cremesheen Glass, which makes the set have a total value of $80.00. The holiday sets are a great way to restock your glosses, if you like the formula or shades. The sets often repeat from year to year and have a mix of often-repromoted-limited-editions as well as permanent options. Cremesheen Glass is sheerer, lightweight, comfortable without being sticky, with short wear time (one to three hours). Dazzleglass is thicker, glossier, sparkly (or glittery), sticky, and typically sheer but have longer wear time (two to four hours).

Sugarrimmed is described as a “milky pale pink with multi-pearlized pigments.” It’s a light, warm-toned pink with multi-colored sparkle (mostly pink and silver to my eye). It had semi-sheer color coverage with a light-medium consistency that was tacky and lasted for three hours on me. Surratt Beauty Amethyste (P, $32.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Gal Friday (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Bellini (P, $24.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Look Who's Here (LE, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Be an Angel, Darling (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Little Rock (LE, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Clear Water (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Oyster Girl (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Reckless Desire (LE, $17.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Happily Ever After (LE, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Out for Glamour (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Purpurine (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Just Superb is described as a “neutral pink.” It’s a light-medium peachy-pink with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that applied smoothly but settled into every lip line and then some due to its milkiness. It wore for two hours on me. Anastasia Vintage (-, $16.00) is more pigmented (95% similar). Sephora Rose Petal (05) (P, $12.00) is cooler (95% similar). Buxom Creamsicle (P, $19.00) is warmer (90% similar). Dior Swan (263) (P, $35.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). NYX Apple Strudel (P, $5.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Bijou (LE, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). Maybelline Pink-a-boo (P, $4.49) is lighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Nectar (LE, $24.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Please Me (P, $17.00)(90% similar). MAC Dress the Part (LE, $20.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). NARS Tasmania (P, $26.00) is lighter (90% similar). Too Faced Peach Fuzz (P, $19.00) is brighter (90% similar). Chanel Sensible (15) (P, $34.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Nooner (DC, $20.00) is warmer (85% similar). NYX Tres Leches (P, $5.99) is lighter, more pigmented (85% similar). MAC Candy Box (P, $17.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Artful (LE, $17.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Buxom Sophia (P, $19.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Ideale (22) (LE, $34.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Creme Anglaise is described as a “rosy mid-tone pink.” It’s a medium pink with subtle, cooler undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff that applied fairly evenly and didn’t settle into lip lines too noticeably. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and creamy with a mostly non-sticky feel. It wore for two and a half hours on me. Dior Ciel Rose (449) (P, $35.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Maybelline Caramel Infused (065) (P, $8.99) is lighter (85% similar). Bite Beauty Ten (Watercolor) (LE) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Colour Saturation is described as a “deep wine.” It’s a dark, berry-red with cool undertones and a cream finish. It had sheer color payoff with a lightweight consistency that was comfortable tow ear, but the gloss settled into lip lines a lot, so it may be better over a liner or lipstick if you don’t like that to occur. The color lasted for three and a half hours on me. Maybelline Amethyst Potion (045) (P, $8.99) is more muted (95% similar). Chanel Tocade (182) (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, warmer (95% similar). Milani Berry Tempting (05) (P, $5.49) is more muted (95% similar). NARS Penny Arcade (LE, $26.00) is darker, more muted (95% similar).

MAC Fashion Perk (P, $22.00) is more muted (90% similar). MAC Ruby (P, $20.00) is more muted, warmer (90% similar). Milani Ravish Raspberry (06) (P, $5.49) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Gwi-Yo-Mi (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Sixties Fan (P, $26.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Blushing Berry (LE, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

Bite Beauty Rewind Matte Creme Lip Crayon Set

Bite Beauty Rewind Lip Crayon Set
Bite Beauty Rewind Lip Crayon Set

Bite Beauty Rewind Lip Crayon Set ($25.00 for 0.12 oz.) includes four travel-sized, twist-up lip colors housed in a red tin. I really liked Bite’s set last year, and I think this year’s is also good and works well as a stocking stuffer or more affordable gift to give. Full-sized pencils are 0.05 oz. each, and each of these is 0.031 oz., which makes the set worth $59.52. The Matte Creme Lip Crayon formula tends to be smooth and velvety in texture with good pigmentation, long- and comfortable wear. The formula has a lemony, slightly herbal, scent but no discernible taste.

Aubergine is described as an “eggplant.” It’s a medium-dark, berry-plum with hints of red and a cooler undertone paired with a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a creamy, smooth consistency that was easy to apply and didn’t tug at the lip. The color wore well for six hours and was lightly hydrating over time. This shade is part of the permanent range. The version in the set was actually more pigmented and less glossy, which resulted in a more muted colro overall, though they are similar. Estee Lauder Insolent Plum (P, $32.00) is glossier (95% similar). MAC Claretcast (P, $21.00) is cooler (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Seduce Me (128) (DC, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar). YSL Exquisite Plum (22) (P, $34.00) is lighter (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Boy Gorgeous (222) (P, $30.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Venom (DC, $22.00) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). Hourglass Liberator (P, $32.00) is more muted (90% similar). NARS No Shame (LE, $29.00) is darker (90% similar). Chanel Roman (208) (P, $37.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Heaux (Amplified) (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Xavier (DC, $35.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Mulberry (P, $24.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Inglot #293 Lipstick Cream (P, $12.00) is darker (90% similar). Too Faced Berry Naughty (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Tarte Popsicle (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Purple Noon (LE, $52.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). MAC Rebel (P, $17.00) is more muted, cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Brocade (P, $35.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Bite Beauty Sugared Maple (LE, $24.00) is darker (85% similar). Revlon Plum Velour (P, $7.99) is lighter, less pigmented (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Torte is described as a “brown-toned rose.” It’s a soft, medium-dark rosy pink with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a soft, smooth texture that applied evenly and was comfortable to wear over five hours. It was lightly hydrating. Estee Lauder Incensed (P, $32.00) is cooler (95% similar). Bite Beauty Rosewood (P, $28.00) is lighter, less glossy (85% similar). Chanel Ce Soir (DC, $34.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tarte Happy (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Bite Beauty Cortado (LE, $24.00) is lighter (85% similar). Maybelline Touch of Spice (P, $7.99) is lighter, less glossy (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Soft Berry (P, $35.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Too Faced Pink Chocolate (P, $22.00) is warmer, glossier (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Cary (P, $35.00) is lighter (85% similar). Bite Beauty Rhubarb (P, $26.00) is lighter (85% similar). Bite Beauty Papaya (P, $24.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Tarte Glaze (LE, $24.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Chanel Libre (62) (P, $37.00) is lighter, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Cafe is described as a “peachy-brown nude.” It’s a light-medium, pinky-peach with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a lightly creamy consistency that applied without dragging. The formula seemed less forgiving than the other three, and it made my lips look drier as the lines were more apparent. I had some noticeable color settle into lip lines after two and a half hours orf wear, though the color wore fairly well for four hours in total. NARS Rosecliff (P, $28.00) is glossier (95% similar). Bite Beauty Sable (LE, $24.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Austin (P, $35.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Estee Lauder Desirable (P, $32.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Addison (P, $35.00) is lighter (90% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Memento (P, $17.00) is glossier (95% similar). NARS Anita (P, $32.00) is lighter, less glossy (80% similar). Bite Beauty Café (LE, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Boca (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Julie (P, $32.00) is warmer, glossier (90% similar). Anastasia #1 (Vol. 1) (P) is darker, warmer, less glossy (90% similar). NARS Vanessa (P, $32.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). Estee Lauder Mischievous Rose (P, $30.00) is lighter (90% similar). Givenchy Nude Guipure (106) (P, $36.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Naked Dream (LE, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). Bite Beauty Pepper (P, $24.00) is darker (85% similar). NARS Montego Bay (P, $26.00) is darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Jiffy (LE, $6.00) is cooler (90% similar). Bite Beauty Pepper (P, $26.00) is darker (80% similar). Colour Pop Fiesta (DC, $5.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Coulis is described as a “raspberry red.” It’s a medium-dark, neutral-to-cool toned red with a satin finish. It had semi-opaque coverage–there was a little bit of my lip freckle still coming through–but the coverage was even. This shade lasted for six hours and left behind a stain, and it was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Mind Control (LE, $17.00) is darker, brighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Blood (DC, $5.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). NARS Majella (P, $25.00) is warmer (95% similar). Hourglass Innovator (P, $32.00) is glossier (95% similar).

Estee Lauder Decisive Poppy (P, $30.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Colour Pop Jingle (LE, $5.00) is lighter (85% similar). Make Up For Ever Raspberry Red (401) (P, $24.00) is glossier (85% similar). Chanel Rouge Rebelle (172) (P, $37.00) is lighter, glossier (85% similar). Besame Besame Red 1920 (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Burberry Military Red (P, $34.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar).

MAC Irresistibly Charming/Nude Lipgloss Set

MAC Irresistibly Charming/Nude Lipgloss Set

MAC Irresistibly Charming/Nude Lipgloss Set ($35.00 for 0.32 oz.) includes one shade of Dazzleglass and three shades of Cremesheen Glass. MAC’s holiday lipgloss sets are actually one of their best values, because while the tubes may look short, they actually contain 0.08 oz. each! But this is the crazy part: full-sized Dazzleglasses are a mere 0.06 oz., while full-sized Cremesheen Glasses are 0.09 oz. The set contains $26.67 worth of Dazzleglass and $53.33 worth of Cremesheen Glass, which makes the set have a total value of $80.00. The holiday sets are a great way to restock your glosses, if you like the formula or shades. The sets often repeat from year to year and have a mix of often-repromoted-limited-editions as well as permanent options. Cremesheen Glass is sheerer, lightweight, comfortable without being sticky, with short wear time (one to three hours). Dazzleglass is thicker, glossier, sparkly (or glittery), sticky, and typically sheer but have longer wear time (two to four hours).

Dressed to Dazzle is described as a “pale white pink shimmer.” It’s a purple-taupe-tinted clear base with gold and lavender sparkle. It’s sheer with noticeable sparkle, but the base does lighten and add a pinkish tint to my natural lip color–as it is sheer, this may look different depending on the natural coloring of your lips. The glitter doesn’t travel and didn’t have a noticeable texture over the three hours it lasted, but it is light-medium in thickness with noticeable tackiness, which may be a deal-breaker for some. I think it would be better layered over a lipstick, as there is some settling into lip lines. MAC Demure (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Firefly (P, $24.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Bellini (P, $24.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain Rose in Bloom (LE, $32.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Feeling Fine (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Roulette (P, $17.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dress the Part is described as a “pale nude pink.” It’s a light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It emphasizes lip lines quite a bit due to the more milky consistency of the gloss and lighter color. It had semi-sheer color payoff and was comfortable to wear, but it only lasted for two hours. MAC Date with Violet (LE, $20.00) is brighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Lovechild (DC, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). Bite Beauty Three (Watercolor) (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Obsessed (DC, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Rose Quartz (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Sephora Paradise Pink (15) (P, $12.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). MAC Picture Pink (LE, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Look Who's Here (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Fashion Scoop (LE, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). Maybelline Fuchsia Flicker (P, $4.49) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Pagoda (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Peach Fuzz (P, $19.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Tender (P, $22.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Just Superb (P, $20.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). NYX Maple Blondie (P, $5.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Elegantly Elegant (LE, $22.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Embraceable Me (LE, $20.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Sephora Rose Petal (05) (P, $12.00) is darker (90% similar). NARS Unlaced (P, $26.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Lots of Laughs (LE, $17.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Deelight is described as a “mid-tone neutral.” It’s a muted, medium pinky-plum with warm undertones and a cream finish. This has been released before, and I believe it is part of the permanent range as well. The coverage is semi-sheer, in line with the formula, with a lightweight, hydrating formula that stays on for two and a half hours. The color pulls into lip lines, though, and can look a little streaky and prone to showing “lines” if you press your lips together. MAC Beautifully Bare (LE, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). Buxom Dolly (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Double Tap (P, $20.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Sweet Persuasion (LE, $20.00) is lighter (85% similar). Giorgio Armani #524 (P, $29.00) is warmer (85% similar). NARS Oasis (DC, $25.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). MAC Anything But Demure (LE, $20.00) is darker, cooler, better quality (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Deep Kiss is described as a “deep burgundy.” It’s a muted, medium-dark burgundy with neutral-t-warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage where the natural lip came through quite noticeably, but it added noticeable color as well. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and comfortable to wear. It applied surprisingly evenly for a darker shade like this (and I’m not won over by the Cremesheen formula, as it can often settle into lip lines!). The color was moderately hydrating and wore well for three hours on me. Guerlain Madame Fascine (863) (LE, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar). Chanel Intrigue (P, $30.00) is lighter (90% similar). Chanel Audace (20) (LE, $34.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Looks Like Sin (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Richly Revered (LE, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Hyper-Fabulous (LE, $20.00) is more pigmented, warmer (90% similar). Laura Mercier Desire (LE, $25.00) is warmer (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Love Drunk (320) (P, $28.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Enchanted Eyes/Navy Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Enchanted Eyes/Navy Eyeshadow Palette
MAC Enchanted Eyes/Navy Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Enchanted Eyes/Navy Eyeshadow Palette ($39.50 for 0.15 oz.) includes six eyeshadows with a muted, smoky, blue-leaning vibe. Again, it’s a palette with three so-so shades and three misses, so there’s nothing here that’s particularly impressive. You’re better off choosing a quad of your own MAC eyeshadows, so you can pick good ones instead of this mish-mash!

Backlit is described as a “soft cream nude [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a light beige with subtle, cooler undertones and a frosted sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a soft consistency, but admittedly, mine arrived broken so it can be harder to tell as it looser overall. It wore well for seven and a half hours. MAC Smoked Cocoa #1 (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Creamy Bisque (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Buxom Silk Sheets (P, $12.00) is warmer (90% similar). Guerlain Les Tendres #1 (LE) is warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals Nude Beach (LE) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Acorn (LE, $5.00) is warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Softly Rockin’ is described as a “warm taupey grey [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a light-medium taupe with neutral-to-warm undertones and a frosted finish. This shade also arrived broken, so it was harder to tell just how smooth it was, but it didn’t seem that sparkly or glittery as you might expect a Lustre to feel like. It had semi-opaque coverage and lasted for eight hours on me. Sephora Morning Freshness (P, $10.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Verve (P, $19.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Guerlain Taupe Secret (01) (P, $34.00) is darker (85% similar). YSL Saharienne #5 (P) is darker (80% similar). Chanel Tisse Riviera #3 (P) is darker (80% similar). MAC Breaking Ground (LE, $21.00) is darker (80% similar). Bobbi Brown Rockstar (LE, $22.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

City Beat is described as a “creamy light brown [with a Satin finish].” It’s a medium brown with a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable consistency that applied well and lasted for seven and a half hours. Tarte Dancer & Prancer (LE) is warmer (90% similar). LORAC Navy #5 (LE, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Stila Stone (LE, $18.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Gucci Beauty Tuscan Storm #2 (P) is darker (85% similar). Burberry Pale Barley (102) (P, $29.00) is warmer (85% similar). Chanel Prelude #3 (P) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Dior Minimalism (P, $29.50) is darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

See the Stars is described as a “warm mid-tone grey [with a Frost finish].” It’s an iridescent navy blue with a pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a firm texture that was harder to apply and use. It lasted for seven hours before fading. Sephora + Pantone Universe Citadel (LE) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Self Portrait 2 #3 (LE, $25.00) is darker (85% similar). Smashbox Steel (P) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Blue Velvet is described as a “vibrant midnight blue [with a Velvet finish].” It’s a blackened navy blue with a satin finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation with a dry, firm, and difficult-to-blend consistency. The color wore for seven hours. Tarte Starry Night (LE) is darker (95% similar). Too Faced De La Mer (P, $16.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Waft (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Starry Night #4 (P) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC Indigo Blend #2 (LE) is lighter (85% similar). Lancome Midnight Purple (LE, $19.00) is darker, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Cool Dive is described as a “soft charcoal [with a Matte finish].” It’s a medium black with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It was incredibly stiff in the pan, and the resulting color payoff was sheer and uneven. It started to fade after six and a half hours of wear. Stila Essence (P) is lighter, more pigmented (95% similar). Anastasia LBD (LE, $12.00) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Coal (LE, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar). LORAC Navy #7 (LE, $19.00) is more pigmented, warmer (95% similar). Smashbox Ebony (LE) is darker, more pigmented (90% similar). Too Faced Stiletto (LE, $16.00) is darker, more pigmented (90% similar). Kat Von D Black Metal (LE) is darker, more pigmented (90% similar). MAC Blackboard (LE, $16.00) is more pigmented, warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Enchanted Eyes/Mauve Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Enchanted Eyes/Mauve Eyeshadow Palette
MAC Enchanted Eyes/Mauve Eyeshadow Palette

MAC Enchanted Eyes/Mauve Eyeshadow Palette ($39.50 for 0.15 oz.) includes six eyeshadows with a mauve (more purple to me) theme. Three of the shades (Lightfully, Subtly Elegant, and Magic Moor) have been released in past palettes but are not part of the permanent range. This is a dud palette to me, and it’s pretty much a good example of why MAC’s holiday palettes are no longer highly anticipated. The holidays used to mean a good deal on great eyeshadows from MAC, but now it seems like rinse and repeat with so-so shades that do more to ruin the brand’s reputation than enhance it. Their lip and pigment sets are still (usually) worth checking out, at least.

Lightfully is described as a “white with pink reflects [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a pink-tinged white with larger white sparkle and a frosted finish. It was powdery and dry, which yielded semi-sheer color payoff. The color looked faded after seven hours of wear. MAC Radial Pink (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Cle de Peau Purity (Right) (P) is more shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek Illusion (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC She's Got Class (LE, $32.50) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC 2x Dare #1 (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). Giorgio Armani Open (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Pretty Jazzed is described as a “soft lavender mauve [with a Velvet finish].” It appeared as a pinky-lavender with a satin finish in the pan, but there was virtually no color payoff whatsoever when I tried to swatch it. Even scraping at it, I just couldn’t seem to get much of anything to stick/show up. Hopefully, you’ll understand that this was difficult to test since it barely adhered, so the best I could tell was maybe four hours of wear. I tried to pick dupes that represented what you see in the pan, not necessarily the swatch. MAC Digit (P, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Fizzy Rose (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Swing Out is described as a “pinky violet [with a Satin finish].” It’s a light-medium lavender purple with cool undertones and a satin to pearl finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a lightly soft texture (a little firm) that wore well for seven and a half hours. Lancome Rich History (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Milani Bella Violet (14) (P, $4.49) is darker (90% similar). MAC Digit (P, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). Sugarpill Frostine (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Tainted (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Colour Pop Eye Candy (P, $5.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

A Different Vibe is described as a “light beige-grey [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a sparkling, light-medium taupe brown with warm undertones and larger flecks of glitter. It had semi-opaque color coverage, which is better than some Lustres, though it has that chunkier consistency where the glitter typically separates from the base more. The color wore well for eight hours but had fall out issues. Stila Rose Pewter (LE, $18.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tarte C'est La Vie (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Sephora Morning Freshness (P, $10.00) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop I Heart This (P, $5.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Morning Frost (DC, $18.00) is darker (85% similar). Lancome Tenacity (P, $19.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Subtly Elegant is described as a “light grey lilac [with a Matte finish].” It’s a muted, dark taupe brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It was dusty, thin, and semi-sheer while also suffering from issues blending out–it turned quite patchy. It lasted for seven hours. bareMinerals Suspense (P) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Shade II (2015) (LE, $25.00) is warmer (95% similar). Sephora Cashmere Coat (P, $10.00) is warmer (95% similar). theBalm #25 (P, $6.50) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever S556 Taupe Gray (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). Guerlain Les Cendres #3 (LE) is darker (90% similar). MAC Smoked Cocoa #2 (LE, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). theBalm Dig It (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals Fuze (LE) is darker (90% similar). Laura Mercier Stone Taupe (LE, $23.00) is warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals Priceless (LE) is lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Les Cendres #1 (LE) is lighter (90% similar). bareMinerals Head Over Heels (LE) is darker (90% similar). Tarte Power Player (LE) is warmer (90% similar). Make Up For Ever S556 Taupe Gray (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever M558 Dark Taupe (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). Viseart Tabac (P) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Brains & Brawn (LE, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). Make Up For Ever M548 Pink Gray (P, $21.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Tailor Grey (P, $18.50) is cooler, glossier (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Magic Moor is described as a “rich blackened plum with pearlized pigment [with a Veluxe Pearl finish].” It’s a blackened purple with neutral-to-warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The texture was oddly dry and thin, particularly for a Veluxe Pearl! It came together as I pressed it against the skin, but it applied horribly with a fluffier brush (like the 239). It wore well for eight hours, so I guess that was the upside! LORAC Deep Purple (P, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Black Slip (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Better Together (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). MAC 2x Dare #5 (LE) is darker, more muted, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Rapture (LE, $19.00) is lighter, more muted (90% similar). Urban Decay Darkside (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Dynamic Duo 3 #1 (LE, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tarte Lavender Bubble Bath (LE) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Rockstar (P, $19.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Stolen Moment (P, $20.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Laura Mercier Violet Steel (LE, $23.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). NARS Subra (P, $29.00) is darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Blackheart (P, $19.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Moth Brown (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Pepper (LE, $16.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Estee Lauder Cyber Lilac (LE, $24.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Twilight Falls (LE, $21.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (85% similar). MAC Beautymarked (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Fyrinnae Alchemist's Curse (P, $6.80) is more shimmery, brighter, warmer (80% similar). Chanel Poesie #4 (LE) is more shimmery, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
