MAC x Star Trek Pleasure Planet & Set to Stun Lipglasses

MAC Pleasure Planet Lipglass
MAC Pleasure Planet Lipglass

MAC Pleasure Planet Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as a “muted gold shimmer.” It’s a medium, yellowed gold with warm gold, pink, and copper flecks of sparkle. It had semi-sheer coverage, so it imparted some color but mostly shine and sparkle on the lips. There was a moderate tackiness, which made it longer-wearing, but it wasn’t too thick or goopy on. It lasted for four hours on me and was lightly hydrating.
Colour Pop KT (LE) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Canary (P, $24.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pure Gold (LE, $24.00) is warmer (90% similar). Estee Lauder Citron Kiss (LE, $23.00) is cooler (90% similar). Maybelline Gleaming Gold (120) (LE)(90% similar). Bobbi Brown Candlelight (LE, $24.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Set to Stun Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as a “light silver with gold pearl.” It’s a medium, silvery gray with neutral-to-warm undertones and gold and pink sparkle. It had semi-sheer color payoff that applied fairly evenly and didn’t settle into lip lines. I think the shimmer could have distributed just a bit more evenly, but it wasn’t too noticeable. The texture was light-medium in weight, moderately tacky, but smooth and comfortable to wear. This shade lasted for four hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating.
Colour Pop Nonsense (LE) is lighter (95% similar). MAC She-Zam (LE, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). Chanel Aragonite (P, $30.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Star Trek collection will be available online on August 25th and in-stores September 1st (North America). There are two more shades–Khaaannnn! (berry with red reflect) and Warp Speed Ahead (plum with blue and pink reflects) that will be released as well.

Anastasia Bronzed, Kristen, Undressed Lip Glosses

Anastasia Bronzed, Kristen, Undressed Lip Glosses
Anastasia Bronzed, Kristen, Undressed Lip Glosses

Anastasia Bronzed Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a medium, golden copper with warm undertones and a lot of larger copper and gold sparkle. This shade isn’t consistent with the brand’s formula at all, as it is lighterweight, more emollient, and very sheer. It added primarily sparkle with some warmth against my natural lip color, but it may vary a lot from person to person due to its sheerness. The gloss was comfortable to wear, hydrating, and lasted for three and a half hours. Illamasqua Culminate (LE, $24.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Dior Ambre Lumiere (227) (P, $29.50) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Soft Serenade (LE, $15.00) is warmer (90% similar). Dior Etincelante (432) (P, $29.50) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Blessedly Rich (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Attirance (LE, $32.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Revlon Rosegold (DC, $7.49) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Kristen Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium rosy brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had rich pigmentation that covered the lips with smooth, even, and opaque coverage. The texture was almost gel-like and cushion-y on the lips without being heavy. It did seem to emphasize the texture of my lips just slightly, but it didn’t settle very much at all, which was a surprise. This shade lasted well for four and a half hours on me. MAC Show Me (P, $19.50) is darker, more muted, warmer (95% similar). MAC Pamela (LE, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). Anastasia Toffee (-, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Caramel (-, $16.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). MAC Over Indulgence (P, $20.00) is warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Undressed Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a light-medium peach with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had good color payoff, but the gloss was unforgiving to apply, as it had some visible streaks, but it also settled into lip lines, which I felt worsened over time. The gloss still wore for a good four hours, and the formula was hydrating and comfortable to wear, but it didn’t sit well on lips at all. MAC Spanking Haute (LE, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Liquid Passion (LE, $15.00) is lighter, more muted (90% similar). MAC Overspiced (LE, $15.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Fashion Punch (P, $10.00) is darker (85% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Bardot Beige (P, $22.00) is cooler (85% similar). MAC Peachstock (LE, $15.00) is lighter (85% similar). Divergent Supreme Ritual (LE) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Anastasia Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is supposed to be “opaque” with “high-shine” that’s “non-drying.” It is one of the more pigmented lipglosses out there that has a smoother, more cushion-y consistency that typically spreads well across the lips. Some shades gather in lip lines, and some shades apply streaky; it seems more common with lighter shades and milkier colors. The formula is non-sticky initially and develops slight tackiness over time. My experience from wearing the formula is that they are often lightly to moderately hydrating and wear three to five hours. They have a vanilla scent that isn’t too overpowering nor does it linger once applied (I notice it mostly in the tube).

Anastasia Warm Bronze, Fudge, Tara Lip Glosses

Anastasia Warm Bronze Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark reddish-copper with warm undertones and fine, lighter gold pearl. It rich, opaque color coverage that applied beautifully–smooth, even color that sat well on the lips. The formula was comfortable to wear, mostly non-tacky, and lasted for a solid five hours while hydrating my lips. MAC Enchanter (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, less pigmented (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Shooting Stars (316) (DC, $28.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Black Tea (LE, $19.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Fudge Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a muted, reddish-brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was fantastic–completely opaque–and covered beautifully. The consistency was light-to-medium in weight, mostly non-sticky, and comfortable as it wasn’t too thick or too thin. This shade wore nicely for just over five hours and was hydrating while I wore it. MAC Fab Tested (LE, $20.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC Krazy Kahuna (LE, $15.00) is brighter, warmer (85% similar). NARS No. 675 (LE, $26.00) is brighter, cooler (85% similar). Anastasia Tara (-, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar).

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

Anastasia Tara Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark copper-brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. It was intensely pigmented with smooth, even coverage that was easy to spread across the lips. The texture was comfortable to wear, but it seemed a little more slippery compared to other shades. It didn’t feather on me, but that isn’t something I experience frequently. This shade lasted for five hours on me and was moisturizing over time. MAC Kiss Don't Tell (LE, $20.00) is more muted (95% similar). Anastasia Sepia (-, $16.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). NARS More (P, $24.00) is lighter, more muted, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Krazy Kahuna (LE, $15.00) is darker, brighter (85% similar). Maybelline Almond Aura (130) (LE) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar).

Christian Louboutin Beaute Altareva & Colibretta Loubilaque Lip Lacquers

Christian Louboutin Beaute Altareva Loubliaque Lip Lacquer
Christian Louboutin Beaute Altareva Loubliaque Lip Lacquer

Christian Louboutin Beaute Altareva Loubliaque Lip Lacquer ($85.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a medium, rosy pink with warm undertones and fine, golden beige pearl. It had opaque color coverage that applied evenly and was comfortable to wear, but there was slight settling into lip lines over time (more noticeable after three hours of wear). The consistency is lightly tacky after a couple of hours but doesn’t get goopy. It lasted for five hours; the more gel-like feel seems more forgiving if you drink or eat compared to the average gloss, but it isn’t indestructible. MAC Nutty & Naughty (LE, $20.00) is less pigmented (95% similar). Chanel Rose de Lune (LE, $30.00) is less pigmented (90% similar). NARS Baby Doll (P, $26.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Maybelline Blush Essence (095) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (80% similar). MAC Sweet Tooth (LE, $20.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Christian Louboutin Beaute Colibretta Loubliaque Lip Lacquer ($85.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pinky-fuchsia with subtle, warmer undertones and a cream finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a gel-like, smooth texture that felt lighter than it looked. It applied evenly, but again, there was a bit of color that gathered in lip lines. I don’t think it’s noticeable from a normal viewing distance, though, so it may not be a deal-breaker. This shade lasted for six hours and was hydrating over time. Anastasia Petal (-, $16.00) is brighter (90% similar). MAC Love of Roses (LE, $28.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Impassioned (LE, $15.00) is darker (90% similar). Anastasia Weekend Barbie (-, $16.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). Giorgio Armani #523 (P, $29.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). MAC Forever Rose (P, $19.50) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Illamasqua Follow (DC, $22.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (80% similar). Dior Plaisir (779) (LE, $35.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). Urban Decay Quiver (P, $26.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Christian Louboutin Beaute Loubliaque Lip Lacquer ($85.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is newest launch from the brand. It is a lipgloss that’s supposed to have “brilliant, bold color” with “high-shine.” There are eight shades available; I purchased four to try and don’t expect to purchase the other four at this time. The gloss is housed in a clear, vial-like case, which is made out of plastic, with a flexible doe-foot applicator. It comes with a metallic ribbon that loops through the lid so that you can wear it (I would recommend using a sturdier chain). The formula is smooth, almost gel-like that feels cushion-y on the lips that is mostly non-sticky, and the shades I tried were fairly pigmented. The wear was between five and seven hours, while the formula was hydrating. The big issue I had with these was a tendency for them to get on my teeth. The formula has a floral scent and often soap-like taste. The formula reminded me a lot of Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss and Dior Fluid Addicts (this one feels more water-like initially, but it develops to a similar consistency within 30 seconds). I think the way they look on the lips is beautiful and lush, but the taste was frustrating for me.

MAC x Good Luck Trolls Lipglasses

MAC Good Luck Trolls Lipglass

MAC Saint Germain Lipglass ($16.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “light cool pink.” It’s a light-medium pink with cool, blue undertones with a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that went on somewhat evenly, but this one was really prone to emphasizing every little lip line. It lasted for four and a half hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Pure Fiction (LE, $15.00) is warmer (95% similar). Anastasia Pastel Pink (-, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). NYX Merengue (P, $5.00) is lighter, more muted (90% similar). MAC Pink Fade (LE, $15.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Hedonist (P, $18.00) is warmer, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Stay Sweet (LE, $15.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Carousel (LE, $15.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Pure Silliness (LE, $15.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Viva Glam Nicki 2 (LE, $15.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). MAC Speed Up (LE, $20.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Patentpink (P, $20.00) is warmer, less glossy (85% similar).

MAC Carousel (P, $10.00) is darker, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Bubble Butt Lipglass ($16.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “magenta with fine pink and blue glitter.” It’s a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and pink and blue sparkle. It had semi-sheer color coverage that applied evenly overall, and then there was a moderate amount of sparkle–enough to distribute evenly and be noticeable but is not full-on glitter gloss. The thicker consistency of the Lipglass formula made it so I didn’t feel the edges or texture from the sparkle/glitter. This shade lasted for four and a half hours on me. MAC Throw a Spare (LE, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Kink (LE) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Love Alert (LE, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). Dior Cruise (676) (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Imperial Red (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Maybelline Opalescent Orchid (515) (P, $8.99) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). Maybelline Mystical Magenta (610) (P, $8.99) is lighter, brighter (85% similar).

MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus (LE, $15.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Glitter Grunge Lipglass ($16.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “sheer berry with extra fine silver sparkle.” It’s a muted, medium-dark berry with cool, purplish tones and iridescent shimmer and larger silver sparkle. It had semi-sheer color coverage that went on evenly and gave lips a lot of shine and noticeable shimmer. It wore well for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Kim (LE, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Mall Madness (LE, $15.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Real Posh (LE, $15.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Talk Sexy (LE, $15.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Twerkquoise Lipglass ($16.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “transparent sky blue with fine pink reflect.” It’s a pale, sky blue with very fine pink and blue pearl. It had semi-sheer color coverage with a lot of fine shimmer. The consistency was thicker, but I still noticed some of the milkier color settle into lip lines. The amount of shimmer seemed to help camouflage some of the settling, though. It wore well for four and a half hours on me. Giorgio Armani #701 (P, $29.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

These four glosses are from the upcoming Good Luck Trolls collection, which launches online on July 28th and in-stores on August 4th.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | MAC Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is supposed to have “glass-like shine” with “high coverage.” It is “pigmented, very shiny, and can impart subtle or dramatic color.” Lipglass is a thicker, tacky formula that is noticeable on the lips but has a very glossy finish. The tackier consistency helps it wear longer than the average gloss–four to six hours–and is more likely to survive through eating/drinking to some degree. For the most part, I don’t find them hydrating, but they are not drying either. The formula is vanilla-scented but has no discernible taste. While MAC might indicate the formula is “high coverage” and “pigmented,” coverage varies from shade to shade–anywhere from ultra sheer to nearly opaque. I’d be more inclined to describe it as buildable, medium coverage overall. The best MAC Lipglasses, to me, are the ones with fine pearl or sparkle, as the high-shine coupled with the reflection of the shimmer makes it standout.

Anastasia Orchid, Electro, Potion Lip Glosses
Anastasia Orchid, Electro, Potion Lip Glosses

Anastasia Orchid Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium lavender-purple with warm, pink undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff, while the gloss had enough thickness that it didn’t settle too much into lip lines, but it didn’t feel heavy. The biggest upside is how evenly the color applies, despite being lighter and quite pigmented. Make Up For Ever 500 Lilac (P, $19.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Dusty Lilac (-, $16.00) is lighter (80% similar). MAC Snuggle Up (LE, $20.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (80% similar). MAC Dilly Dazzle (P, $10.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Electro Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark, magenta purple with cooler, iridescent blue and violet sparkle over a cream base. It had mostly opaque coverage that applied evenly and smoothly, while the consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin. The color wore well for five hours on me while moisturizing my lips. NARS La Main Bleue (P, $26.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Girl About Town (LE, $15.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Milani Flashy (DC, $6.49) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Itchy & Scratchy & Sexy (LE, $15.00) is lighter (80% similar). Estee Lauder Violet Rain (LE, $22.50) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (80% similar). MAC What's Going On (LE, $20.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Anastasia Potion Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a deep, purpled burgundy with a cream finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly without settling too deeply into lip lines, but there’s room for improvement in the application. If you wore a lip primer or liner underneath, I think those issues would be resolved. The color wore well for four and a half hours on me and was hydrating. MAC Dark as Night (P, $19.50) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC With Gusto (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). NARS Toy (P, $26.00) is warmer (95% similar). Anastasia Venom (-, $16.00) is more shimmery, brighter, warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
