MAC Grey Friday Lipstick

MAC Grey Friday Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “blackish-grey with silver shimmer.” It has a frost finish. In the tube, it looks like a steely gray shot through with silver shimmer. When swatched, it’s a semi-sheer to semi-opaque grayish-black with bits of silver and teal micro-shimmer. On lips, it’s a lot less gray/black and is more like insta-vamp by turning my natural lip color into a really dark, muted gray-ish plum color. The only color that came to mind as something similar was Urban Decay Perversion, which is a lipgloss and much, much sheerer (so they look quite different on).

MAC Charmed, I’m Sure is cooler-toned and darker. Guerlain Luxure is less cool-toned. MAC Red Racer is very similar but has no shimmer. Guerlain Samsara is darker. Guerlain Vega is similar but has no shimmer.

OCC Iced Lip Tar

OCC Iced Lip Tar ($16.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as an “opaque snow white frost.” It’s a bright white with a shimmered, silver-tinted metallic sheen. You’d think a shade like this I’d be dupe-less, but alas! MAC Metal Maven is more silver. MAC Bubbles is similar in color but because it is very sheer, it looks pinker as my natural lip color came through quite a bit.
