NARS Killer Shine Lip Glosses

NARS Killer Shine Lip Gloss ($28.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a new, limited edition gloss formula that is supposed to be highly pigmented with a “vinyl-finish.” The glosses were fairly pigmented with high-shine, very glossy finishes with good wear and were comfortable to have on. The formula is lightly to moderately tacky, and there didn’t appear to be an added scent, but I detected a slightly plastic-like scent in the tube/when initially applying but the scent didn’t seem to linger. These have a very tiny, brush-type applicator, which I bet is great for those with thinner lips, but it’s harder to use for me, personally, due to the size of my lips. The formula is neither drying nor hydrating over time.

MAC x Guo Pei Cremesheen Glasses

MAC Bright Pink Bouquet Cremesheen Glass ($28.00 for TBA oz.) is described as a “nude coral.” It’s a medium, orange-coral with lighter pink and white pearl. It swatched much brighter than it looked in the tube or applied, but it isn’t a vibrant coral on, which is where it counts. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which made it the most pigmented of the three (the Cremesheen Glass formula is a sheerer range). The color applied easily and was comfortable to wear over the three hours it lasted. Sephora Good Fairy (LE, $14.00) is lighter, less pigmented (90% similar). Becca Watermelon/Opal (P, $24.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Gucci Beauty Crushed Coral (P, $32.00) is darker (90% similar).

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). Sephora Cappuccino (02) (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tarte Obvi (P, $20.00) is cooler (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. Anastasia Purple Rain (P) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Till Death Do Us Part (LE, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). 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). 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). NYX Immortal (P, $6.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (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 Going Casual (LE, $20.00) is more muted (90% 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). Urban Decay Obsessed (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Saint Germain (P, $15.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC Constant Craving (P, $24.00) is darker (85% similar). Anastasia Dusty Lilac (P) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
