MAC Nutcracker Sweet Nude Lip Bag

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Nude Lip Bag
MAC Nutcracker Sweet Nude Lip Bag

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Nude Lip Bag ($39.50 for 0.30 oz.) includes a full-size lipstick, Vamplify Lipgloss, and Lip Pencil. The Vamplify and Lip Pencil are repromotes, while the lipstick is new. I verified the color consistency between the two versions of the Vamplify Lipgloss, and then I tested the lipstick and lip pencil for wear but did not retest the Vamplify Lipgloss for wear.

Value

  • Vamplify Lipgloss: $20.00 for 0.16 oz. or $125.00/oz.
  • Lipstick: $17.00 for 0.10 oz. or $170.00/oz.
  • Pro Longwear Lip Pencil: $21.00 for 0.04 oz. or $525.00/oz.
  • Total Value: $58.00

Tuned In is a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with warm gold pearl. It had mostly opaque coverage, while the consistency was very smooth and lightweight. The color applied evenly and didn’t settle into lip lines as it wore on. For me, this gloss stayed on well for five hours and was nicely hydrating. Marc Jacobs Beauty Love Drunk (320) (P, $28.00) is less pigmented, lighter (90% similar). MAC Pamela (LE, $20.00) is cooler, less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Audace (20) (LE, $34.00) is cooler, darker (80% similar). MAC Looks Like Sin (LE, $20.00) is less pigmented, less shimmery (85% similar). NYX Chocolate Crepe (P, $5.99) is brighter, lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). Cle de Peau Chenille (12) (P, $48.00) is cooler, less shimmery (85% similar). MAC Liqueur (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Shooting Stars (316) (DC, $28.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Magic Spell is a subdued, mauvey brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a soft, pearly sheen. The lipstick had mostly opaque color payoff that went on evenly. It had a Cremesheen finish, so it had a more luminous finish but a clingier feel overall. It lasted for four hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. Urban Decay Lawbreaker (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Smoked Almond (P, $21.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Script (218) (P, $37.00) is warmer, brighter, more shimmery (85% similar). MAC Touch (P, $17.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). MAC Among the Fireflies (LE, $17.00) is warmer (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Uber Suede (P, $24.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Broken (P, $17.00) is warmer (85% similar). Smashbox Cognac (P, $21.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). MAC Rock it (LE, $17.00) is lighter (80% similar). Urban Decay Amulet (P, $17.00) is darker, more shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

In Control is a muted, medium-dark rosy-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a waxy consistency that was easy enough to maneuver around the edges of the lips but did not work as well for filling in color, as it looked uneven and tugged quite a bit. Once on, the color lasted for eight hours, as described, but it was rather drying on its own. MAC Morning Coffee (P, $19.50) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Manic (P, $20.00) is cooler, brighter (85% similar). MAC Cranberry (DC, $17.50) is cooler, brighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Rush (P, $20.00) is cooler, more shimmery (85% similar).

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Red Lip Bag

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Red Lip Bag
MAC Nutcracker Sweet Red Lip Bag

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Red Lip Bag ($39.50 for 0.30 oz.) includes a full-size lipstick, Vamplify Lipgloss, and Lip Pencil. The Vamplify and Lip Pencil are repromotes, while the lipstick is new (but it is a matte red, so it is definitely dupable). I verified the color consistency between the two repromotes but did not retest them for wear or re-swatch them, so the lip swatches and review are from the last time I wore them.

Value

  • Vamplify Lipgloss: $20.00 for 0.16 oz. or $125.00/oz.
  • Lipstick: $17.00 for 0.10 oz. or $170.00/oz.
  • Pro Longwear Lip Pencil: $21.00 for 0.04 oz. or $525.00/oz.
  • Total Value: $58.00

Suggestive is a bold, bright, medium-dark red with cool, blue undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It had good pigmentation, but there’s some translucency so the natural lip color will come through still. It applied really well with even coverage and never looked streaky and somehow managed not to slip into lip lines until after four to five hours of wear. The color lasted for five hours in all and was hydrating over time. MAC Tease Don't Touch (LE, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Utterly Tart (LE, $15.00) is more muted, darker (95% similar).

Cle de Peau Lempicka Red (18) (P, $48.00) is glossier, more muted, darker (85% similar). NARS Burning Love (LE, $26.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Candy Cane is a bright, medium-dark red with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had very nearly opaque color that went on evenly, though the texture was a bit firmer in the tube, so it tugged slightly as I applied it and definitely needed more pressure to go on. The consistency was thinner and clung more to the lips, but it was still going strong after six hours of wear. The formula was somewhat drying over time. MAC Carmine Rouge (LE, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M401 (P, $22.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC So Good For You (LE, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar).

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

Trust in Red is a slightly muted, medium pinky-red with cooler undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was drier and harder to apply to the lips evenly, so it was most comfortable used to line the lips rather than to fill them in. The color was similar to the last version I had, but the texture was drier. I did retest this one for wear, and it lasted for over eight hours but was drying. Urban Decay 69 (P, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Ruby Woo (P, $17.50)(100% similar). Urban Decay Wonderland (LE, $20.00) is darker (90% similar).

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Ex-Girlfriend, Phone Call, Firebird 24/7 Lip Pencils

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil
Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Ex-Girlfriend 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “nude rose.” It’s a muted, medium rosy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage that went on evenly and only clung somewhat. The texture was still less waxy than I’m used to from this formula, but it was easier to use than most of the other shades in the spring launch. It wore for six hours before fading. MAC Staunchly Stylish (P, $19.50) is darker (90% similar). Bite Beauty #036 (P, $18.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Nice 'n' Spicy (P, $19.50) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Deep (P, $20.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). MAC Morning Coffee (P, $19.50) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Phone Call 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “deep fuchsia-pink.” It’s a bright, medium-darkw fuchsia-coral with warm-ish undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a slightly dry, firm consistency. It covered better and delivered smoother results, but it dragged and took awhile to fill in the lips due to how jagged everything looked. The color wore for over six hours. MAC Dynamo (P, $19.50) is brighter, lighter (90% similar). MAC Embrace Me (P, $17.50) is cooler, lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Firebird 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “bright pink.” It’s a bright, fuchsia pink with cool undertones and subtle silver sparkle over a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation paired with a drier, firmer consistency that dragged and tugged. It would be manageable to use to liner the edge of the lips, but for filling in, it was pretty rough. The color started to fade from the center of the lips noticeably after four hours. Tom Ford Beauty I'll Teach You (Lip Shaper) (P) is lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). Urban Decay Anarchy (P, $20.00) is brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani 714, Rock Steady, Wonderland 24/7 Lip Pencils

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil
Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani 714 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “classic red.” It’s a medium red with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. The 714 lipstick pulled warm to my eye, and when I swatched them side-by-side, it definitely has an orange-tint and is lighter, while the lip pencil looks almost muted and berry-ish in comparison. Together, they layer and create a very true, retro red. The texture of the pencil was much less waxy compared to the formula I’m used to, and it is less comfortable to apply and wear. It lasted for six hours or longer (it was still going strong after six hours), but it was drying on its own. Urban Decay 69 (P, $20.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Ruby Woo (P, $17.50) is brighter, lighter (95% similar). MAC Trust in Red (P, $19.50) is brighter, lighter (90% similar). MAC RiRi Woo (LE, $19.50) is brighter, darker (95% similar). MAC Freehand (LE, $15.00) is more muted (90% similar). MAC Cherry (P, $17.50) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Fighter (DC, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Devil Inside (Lip Shaper) (P) is lighter, more shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Rock Steady 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “blood red.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but it had similar issues with texture that made it harder to apply evenly. It had a tendency to drag and skip, so short, feathery strokes are a must, and it’s not my ideal formula for filling in lips entirely but would be tolerable to outline with. The color wore well for at least six hours but was very drying. Urban Decay Bad Blood (P, $20.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Freehand (LE, $15.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Kiss Me Quick (P, $19.50) is more muted (90% similar). Urban Decay Mrs. Mia Wallace (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Devil Inside (Lip Shaper) (P) is cooler, lighter, more shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Wonderland 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “dark pink-red.” It’s a medium-dark, fuchsia-red with strong, blue-toned pink undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that went on slightly unevenly as the texture was thinner and less creamy, so it drags a little and is harder to apply. It was incredibly drying and clingy on, which was disappointing as the 24/7 formula is my absolute favorite for lip pencils as it is one of the more comfortable ones to apply and wear (like one of the few that I typically find lightly drying or non-drying!). It was still mostly intact after six hours of wear. MAC Trust in Red (P, $19.50) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay 69 (P, $20.00) is lighter (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Secret Escort (Lip Shaper) (P) is lighter, more shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

* It’s going to take me under later in the week to get to the other three lip pencils. These caused some lingering damage to my lips due to how drying they were, and frankly, that’s not something I associate with Urban Decay’s 24/7 Lip Pencil formula. These lacked the glide that I’ve always loved Urban Decay’s lip pencils for. According to Urban Decay, the formula is designed to have long-wear, prevent feathering, be creamy, waterproof, go on smoothly, and “nourish the skin” — just for reference.

NARS Magnificent Obsession Lip Set

NARS Magnificent Obsession Lip Set
NARS Magnificent Obsession Lip Set

NARS Magnificent Obsession Lip Set ($49.00 for 0.188 oz.) includes three warm red-hued lip products. You can wear them together or alone, and they coordinate well together.

Flamenco (Lipstick) is described as a “sheer candy apple red.” It’s a slightly muted, medium pinky-red with warm undertones and a natural finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a lightly creamy consistency that had a little slip but didn’t slide around on the lips. The color wore well for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Chanel Rouge Rebelle (172) (P, $37.00) is cooler (95% similar). Urban Decay Sheer F-Bomb (P, $17.00) is brighter (95% similar). Chanel Histoire (206) (P, $37.00) is glossier, lighter (90% similar). Chanel Dialogue (P, $37.00) is darker (90% similar). Chanel La Bouleversante (51) (P, $37.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). MAC Brave Red (LE, $30.00) is darker (90% similar). Givenchy Rouge Atelier (302) (P, $36.00) is warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Red Stiletto (P, $22.00) is glossier (85% similar). MAC Cherry Glaze (LE, $20.00) is glossier, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Sheer Slowburn (DC, $22.00) is warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Mysterious Red (Velvet Matte Lip Pencil) is described as a “crimson red.” It’s a medium-dark red with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a creamy, velvety consistency that glided across the lips easily and sat well. This shade wore for over six hours and was very lightly drying after four hours of wear. MAC Feels So Grand (P, $21.00) is cooler (95% similar). Maybelline Dynamite Red (P, $7.49) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Bad Blood (DC, $22.00) is warmer (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M402 (P, $22.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Russian Red (P, $17.00) is cooler (95% similar). Urban Decay Rock Steady (P, $18.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Reddy to Go (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Golshan (P, $25.00) is glossier (95% similar). Colour Pop TGIF (LE, $5.00) is glossier, warmer (85% similar). NARS Codie (LE, $32.00) is glossier, more muted (95% similar). MAC Steam Heat (LE, $17.00) is glossier (95% similar). Kat Von D Outlaw (P, $20.00) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Lady Balls (P, $21.00) is brighter, lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Doubt (P, $17.00) is glossier (90% similar). Makeup Geek Beauty Queen (P, $12.00) is brighter, lighter (90% similar). Chanel Experimente (154) (P, $37.00) is cooler, darker (90% similar). Hourglass Raven (P, $28.00) is warmer (90% similar). Kat Von D Santa Sangre (P, $20.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). NARS Majella (P, $25.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Lost (P, $6.00) is more muted, darker (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Misdmeneaor (Velvet Lip Liner) is described as a “crimson red.” It’s a medium, pinky-red with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture is slightly stiff/dry, so it does tug on the lips when used. It will wear for five to six hours, but I did find it somewhat drying on its own. MAC Redd (P, $17.50) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

NARS A Woman’s Face Lip Set

NARS A Woman's Face Lip Set
NARS A Woman’s Face Lip Set

NARS A Woman’s Face Lip Set ($49.00 for 0.188 oz.) includes a lipstick, lip pencil, and lip liner coordinated in the hue of warm plum. These are all permanent shades, so if you like one, you could grab it individually. The set coordinates well, so they can be layered easily; what’s nice is that the lipstick is a sheerer, glossier version of the pencil and lip liner, which means it adds a more hydrating element to the trio.

Dolca Vita (Lipstick) is a muted, medium-dark plummy red with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It is part of the Sheer Lipstick range, so it is, as you might expect, on the sheerer side. It had semi-sheer color coverage with a lightweight, somewhat slippery consistency that is thin and looks and feels more like a light lip balm than traditional lipstick. It applied evenly with smooth color that looked a lot like a lip stain (but this shade may not appear like much on those with naturally redder or darker lips). The color lasted for three hours on me and was lightly hydrating. Tarte Punch (LE, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tarte Praise (LE, $24.00) is more pigmented, darker (90% similar). Estee Lauder Irresistible (P, $32.00) is more pigmented (95% similar). Urban Decay Strip (DC, $22.00) is more pigmented, darker (90% similar). Buxom Hooligan (P, $21.00) is glossier, more pigmented (90% similar). MAC Amor Prohibido (LE, $17.00) is warmer (85% similar). Givenchy Moka Imprime (304) (P, $36.00) is darker (90% similar). Chanel Ce Soir (DC, $34.00) is more pigmented, brighter (90% similar). Chanel Noir Moderne (128) (P, $37.00) is cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dolca Vita (Velvet Matte Lip Pencil) is a medium-dark, reddish plum with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, velvety feel applied to the lips, so it didn’t tug and glided across easily. This is a pencil you’ll need to sharpen, which is sometimes a deal-breaker. The color lasted for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Colour Pop Schnookums (LE, $6.00) is brighter, lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Protest (DC, $22.00) is glossier (90% similar). Bite Beauty Sweet Cream (P, $26.00) is warmer, brighter, lighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Nectar (P, $26.00) is glossier (90% similar). Givenchy Brun Createur (103) (P, $36.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals Feel the Love (LE, $20.00) is glossier, more muted (90% similar). Urban Decay Liar (DC, $22.00) is glossier, more muted (90% similar). Kat Von D Double Dare (P, $20.00) is cooler, darker (90% similar). Chanel Etonnante (131) (P, $37.00) is glossier, darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Bumble (P, $6.00) is cooler, more muted, darker (85% similar). Kat Von D Beloved (P, $20.00) is cooler, brighter, lighter (85% similar). MAC Aim to Please (P, $20.00) is more pigmented, darker (85% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Amazing Grace (P, $32.00) is brighter (85% similar). MAC Lady at Play (P, $23.00) is glossier, brighter (85% similar). Bite Beauty Chablis (P, $24.00) is glossier, brighter, lighter (85% similar). Too Faced Bachelorette (P, $22.00) is cooler, brighter, lighter (85% similar). Kat Von D Double Dare (LE, $21.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). MAC Fashion Force (LE, $20.00) is cooler, more shimmery (90% similar). NARS Natalie (P, $32.00) is cooler, brighter, lighter (85% similar). NARS Descanso (LE, $25.00) is glossier, lighter (80% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Patong Beach (Velvet Lip Liner) is a muted, medium-dark reddish plum with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage in one stroke, but it is buildable to mostly opaque coverage. The Velvet Lip Liner formula is supposed to be “pigment-rich” while filling and preventing feathering on the lips with “long-wearing, comfortable wear.” I find that they tend to be a little dry so they tug on the lips, and while not the most drying lip pencil, it’s not comfortable on its own for me. It is clingy and lightly to moderately drying, even though it does last for six hours. MAC Half-Red (P, $17.50) is cooler (90% similar). Bite Beauty #032 (P, $18.00) is cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
