MAC Everybody’s Talking, Push Some Buttons, Flash Drive Vamplify Lipglosses

MAC Everybody’s Talking Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as am “intense coral.” It’s a brightened, medium coral-orange with warm undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had very nearly opaque pigmentation with a smooth, creamy consistency that applied with even coverage and lasted for five hours. The formula was comfortable to wear and lasted for five hours on me.

MAC Spanking Haute, Tuned In, Hyper-Fabulous Vamplify Lipglosses

MAC Spanking Haute Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as a “pinky nude.” It’s a light-medium, pink-tinged peach with a creamy, glossy finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a comfortable-to-wear formula but uneven coverage that was prone to appearing streaky on. It’s not the worst offender I’ve come across, but it has a messy to look to it without a lipstick or liner underneath it. On me, this shade wore for four hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Overspiced (LE, $15.00) is lighter (95% similar). Maybelline Nude Illusion (060) (P, $8.99) is darker, more muted (90% similar).

Milani Desire & Romance Amore Matte Lip Cremes

Milani Desire Amore Matte Lip Creme ($8.99 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright red.” It’s a brightened, medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a smooth, matte finish. It was intensely pigmented and applied with even coverage, though the more liquid-y consistency does make it a little harder to maneuver around the edges. As always, I recommend trying to remove excess product from the applicator or using a lip brush to make it easier to apply. It wore well for eight hours with minimal fading and was a little drying after seven hours. Colour Pop Succulent (P, $6.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). NARS Mysterious Red (LE, $25.00) is glossier (95% similar). Hourglass Raven (P, $28.00) is warmer, glossier (90% similar). Kat Von D Underage Red (P, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar).

MAC She-Rebel, How Chic is This, Modern Drama Vamplify Lipglosses

MAC She-Rebel Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as a “dark blue-purple.” It’s a muted, medium-dark purple with bluish shimmer. It looks a lot bluer swatched, but the semi-opaque coverage means the natural color of the lips comes through noticeably–and I think that’s why it appears less blue and more purple on lips. Initially, I expected it to be closer to OCC Technopagan, but it really isn’t. I wish it was more opaque, because application is troublesome as the color goes on unevenly and looks patchy. It lasted for four hours and was somewhat moisturizing while worn. NYX Betrayal (P, $6.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Estee Lauder Shameless Violet (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, lighter, less glossy (85% similar). NYX Immortal (P, $6.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (80% similar). Colour Pop Be-dazzled (LE, $6.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). Giorgio Armani #604 (P, $29.00) is lighter, less pigmented (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Speed Up, A for Attitude, What’s Going On Vamplify Lipglosses

MAC Speed Up Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as a “bubblegum pink.” It’s a light-medium pink with cool, blue undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had good pigmentation, though it wasn’t fully opaque, that applied evenly but had a tendency to emphasize lip lines. I noticed some of the gloss settled more noticeably as it wore on (after about two hours), but it wasn’t the worst I’ve seen–probably one of the better-wearing and -looking light pinks from MAC in gloss-form in awhile. This shade wore well for four hours on me and was lightly hydrating. MAC Pure Silliness (LE, $15.00) is brighter (95% similar). MAC Patentpink (LE, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). NYX Merengue (P, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Carousel (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Pure Fiction (LE, $15.00) is more muted (90% similar). MAC Long Love Love (P, $19.50) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Pink Nouveau (LE, $15.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Going Casual (LE, $20.00) is more muted (90% similar).

Milani Adore & Lust Amore Matte Lip Cremes

Milani Adore Amore Matte Lip Creme ($8.99 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is described as a “pink nude.” It’s a brightened, light-medium peach with a hint of pink and a flat, matte finish. It had had mostly opaque color coverage, but the texture dried down very, very dry and “cracked” as soon as I smiled or moved my lips, which made it a more uncomfortable shade to wear. This was my least favorite to wear, as it felt noticeably drying after three hours of wear and only lasted for six hours before flaking and fading unevenly. Kat Von D Noble (P, $20.00) is warmer (95% similar). Anastasia Pure Hollywood (P, $20.00) is cooler, glossier (90% similar). MAC Kinda Sexy (P, $17.00) is darker (80% similar). Melt Cosmetics Summer! (P, $19.00) is brighter, warmer, glossier (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
