MAC Flamingo Park Cremesheen Glasses

MAC Look Who’s Here Cremesheen Glass ($20.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “soft pink with blue pearl.” It’s a light, pastel pink with subtle, warm undertones and lighter bluish-lavender sparkle. The lighter, creamier color resulted in a milky quality that–as you might expect–settles into lip lines. While the Cremesheen Glass formula is comfortable to wear and moisturizing, it often exaggerates lip lines when worn on its own. The gloss wore for two hours. MAC Demure (LE, $20.00) is more pigmented (95% similar). MAC Sugarrimmed (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Pagoda (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Such Sweeties (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Chanel Eau de Rose (86) (LE, $27.00) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Istria (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, brighter (90% similar). Maybelline Tickled Pink (P, $4.49) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Tender (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, lighter, more pigmented (90% similar). Maybelline Blushing Petal (505) (P, $8.99) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Dress the Part (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Be an Angel, Darling (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sephora + Pantone Universe Modern Watercolors Lipgloss Set

Sephora + Pantone Universe Modern Watercolors Lipgloss Set ($28.00 for 0.84 fl. oz.) includes six lipglosses. They’re supposed to be “playful pastels” that give “high-shine color payoff in a single stroke” with “deep hydration and conditioning.” They’re pretty subpar lipglosses; they’re the kind of product that gives house brands/drugstore brands a bad name. They’re uneven, lightly tacky, not moisturizing, and come off in an hour or two. The applicator is rough and barely flocked, so it feels a little sharp at times, and hardly any gloss gets on the applicator. I’m trying to understand the concept of “high-shine color payoff in a single stroke” when the gloss is neither pigmented nor high-shine; these are less shine than some lip balms at times. Though I’m not entirely surprised that a range of pastels ended up sheer and applied dismally, I know Sephora can do better (one of my favorite gloss formulas is by Sephora!).

MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande Lipstick & Lipglass

MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “shimmering pink.” It’s a sheer, pink-tinted gloss with moderate gold and pink sparkle. It lightens my natural lip color slightly but yields primarily shine and sparkle. It can be layered over another lip color, including the lipstick. I noticed this particular shade seemed tackier than recent Lipglasses, though not quite as thick as The gloss lasted for three hours on me. Sephora Collection Good Fairy (LE, $14.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Rose de Lune (LE, $30.00) is more pigmented (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Love Buzz (324) (P, $28.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Eau de Rose (86) (LE, $27.00) is cooler (90% similar). Chanel Star (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

NARS Instant Crush & Vida Loca Lipglosses

NARS Instant Crash Lipgloss ($26.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft shimmering apricot.” It’s a light-medium peach with hints of warm, brown and fine white shimmer. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation with a light-to-medium-weight consistency that was mildly sticky but not thick or gluey. It didn’t appear streaky, but the color emphasized and sat in lip lines heavily, so it was less flattering worn alone. This shade wore for four hours on me. Sephora Collection Cappuccino (02) (P, $14.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Ultimate Dish (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Sephora Collection Perfect Nude (04) (P, $14.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Divergent Supreme Ritual (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar).

MAC Calypso Beat Cremesheen Glass ($20.00 for 0.09 fl. oz.) is described as a “neutral pink with pearl.” It’s a light-medium, pink-coral with wamr undertones and white shimmer. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a smooth, lightweight texture that was non-tacky and comfortable to wear, though it emphasized lip lines with its lighter color.
