MAC x Pedro Lourenço Lipsticks

MAC x Pedro Lourenço Lipsticks
MAC x Pedro Lourenço Lipsticks

MAC x Pedro Lourenço Lipsticks ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) will be available in four new, limited edition shades. The collection launches online on May 29th and in-stores on June 5th. All four shades are Amplified finishes, so they are more opaque and longer-wearing than the average MAC Lipstick. None of these were hydrating on me, but none were drying either. They were all more dupable than not, so you may want to check your stash for similar shades.

Peach Beige is described as a “light pinky nude [with an Amplified finish].” It’s a light, pink-beige with a satiny sheen. It had full, opaque color coverage, and the consistency was really creamy, almost a little wet. It has a tendency to create lines if you press your lips together, so it is more high-maintenance than you might want. The color lasts about four hours on me and isn’t drying (though not hydrating), but it pulls into lip lines slightly. MAC Strip Poker (LE, $16.00) is warmer but very similar, more matte. Maybelline Bare All (910) (P, $7.49) is sheerer, lighter. MAC Pret-a-Pretty (LE, $17.00) is pinker. MAC Ruffian Naked (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Myth (P, $16.00) is pinker. MAC Fleshpot (P, $16.00) is very similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Roxo is described as a “deep red [with an Amplified finish].” It’s a medium-dark, blue-based red with a satiny sheen. It’s just slightly muted overall. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and it applied evenly and smoothly. The color wore for six hours on me, plus left a stain behind, but I had some slight feathering along the upper lip line. Urban Decay Gash (LE, $22.00) is slightly brighter. MAC Just a Bite (LE, $16.00) is redder. NARS Mascate (P, $26.00) is more matte. MAC Charmed, I’m Sure (LE, $16.00) is a touch lighter. MAC Absolute Power (LE, $16.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Ruby is described as a “mid-tone blue red [with an Amplified finish].” It’s a bright, medium red with very subtle blue undertones–it almost looks warm-toned against my complexion. It had good, nearly full color coverage, and it applied smoothly without settling into lip lines. It wore well for almost six hours and left a stain behind, and I didn’t have any feathering issues with this shade. I would describe it more as a neutral red. There are a surprising number of shades that are similar, so this list isn’t quite exhaustive. MAC True Love’s Kiss (LE, $16.00) is a touch darker. MAC Head in the Clouds (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Estee Lauder Vengeful Red (P, $30.00) is similar. Anna Sui Minnie Mouse (01) (LE) is similar. Marc Jacobs Beauty Neo-Noir (126) (P, $30.00) is a touch darker. Edward Bess Eternal Passion (P, $32.00) is similar. Maybelline On Fire Red (P, $7.49) is slightly warmer. MAC Everyday Diva (P, $22.00) is very similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

True Red is described as a “vivid bright coral red [with an Amplified finish].” It’s a bright, medium-dark orange with reddish tones. It almost looks like it has very, very fine orange shimmer in it. It had rich, opaque color coverage, and it was easy to apply and didn’t tug on the lips. The color lasted for six hours before fading, and it was comfortable to wear. It’s a lovely color and nice formula overall, but this color is extremely common. Estee Lauder Impassioned (P, $30.00) is lighter. NARS Short Circuit (LE, $26.00) is slightly more orange. Dior Trafalgar (844) (P, $34.00) is similar. Urban Decay Bang (P, $22.00) is more orange. Maybelline Orange Edge (LE, $7.49) is very similar. Maybelline Vibrant Mandarin (P, $7.49) is very similar. MAC Scarlet Ibis (LE, $16.00) is more matte. MAC Sail La Vie (LE, $16.00) is more matte. MAC Lady Danger (P, $16.00) is more matte. Buxom Rogue (P, $21.00) is lighter. Inglot #103 Lipstick Cream (P, $12.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC x Kelly Osbourne Lipsticks

MAC x Kelly Osbourne Lipsticks
MAC x Kelly Osbourne Lipsticks

The MAC x Kelly Osbourne Collection features four new and limited edition shades of lipstick. Each lipstick is housed in a lavender case that’s almost matte but has a slight shimmer. They’re interesting shades, and three of the four are more pastel in nature, which made them more prone to settling/pulling into lip lines while worn, rather than evenly fading/wearing away.

MAC Dodgy Girl Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “light lavender [with a Matte finish].” It’s a light-medium, pink-tinged lavender with a satin finish. There’s a slight sheen to it, so I wouldn’t describe it as matte. It had mostly opaque color coverage and lasted four hours on me, and it wore fairly well throughout, though it did very slightly “crack” after three hours. It was neither hydrating nor moisturizing, but the consistency was creamy and glided on easily. Illamasqua Posture (P, $24.00) is more matte, darker. MAC Fresh Amour (LE, $16.00) is purpler. MAC Lavender Whip (LE, $16.00) is pinker. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Digitalis (P, $18.00) is slightly pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Kelly Yum-Yum Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “bright blue pink [with a Satin finish].” It’s a vibrant, medium, fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and leans slightly magenta. It had rich, opaque color payoff, and the consistency was creamy so application was easy. The color lasted for six hours and left a stain behind; it was neither drying nor hydrating. There are numerous similar shades on the market, past and present. MAC Happy-Go-Lucky (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Sephora + Pantone Universe Radiant Rush (LE, $18.00) is darker, more magenta. Bite Beauty Moscato (P, $28.00) is brighter, cooler-toned. Bite Beauty Satsuma (LE, $24.00) is brighter, lighter. NARS Full Frontal (LE, $26.00) is more magenta. Maybelline Electric Fuchsia (LE, $7.49) is a touch darker. MAC Dear Diary (LE, $18.00) is slightly darker. MAC Pink Pigeon (LE, $16.00) is darker. MAC Daddy’s Little Girl (LE, $16.00) is more matte. MAC Candy Yum Yum (P, $16.00) is brighter, cooler-toned–this is really a more wearable, less blue-based version of CYY. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Nylon (P, $18.00) is brighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Riot House Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “light vivid orange [with a Matte finish].” It’s a very light peach with a mostly matte finish. The texture of this felt really creamy, but it still seemed very unforgiving; if you have any dryness or imperfections on your lips, this will highlight them, so I would recommend using a lip primer and/or lip pencil to improve the end result. It’s creamy enough that it tends to thicken but not distribute evenly–it moves around, creating “lines” if you press your lips together at all. The color is pretty close to full coverage, and it wears for three and a half hours. It starts to pull and settle into lip lines, though, as it wears. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Hollywood (P, $18.00) is very shimmery, less peach. MAC Sweet & Sour (LE, $16.00) is darker. MAC Salute (LE, $16.00) is yellower. MAC Peachstock (P, $16.00) is darker, browner. MAC Nearly Nude (LE, $16.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Strip Poker Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “light nude [with a Matte finish].” It’s a light, pink-tinged beige with a matte finish. It had full, opaque color coverage, while the formula on this shade was lightly creamy but not too thick, so it was more manageable to apply and wear than Riot House. The color wore well for three and a half hours, and it did slightly pull into lip lines over time but not too noticeably. It was a touch drying, unfortunately. Maybelline Blushing Beige (915) (P, $7.49) is darker, warmer. Maybelline Bare All (910) (P, $7.49) is sheerer. MAC Pret-a-Pretty (LE, $17.00) is similar. MAC Ruffian Naked (LE, $16.00) is slightly cooler-toned. MAC Myth (P, $16.00) is pinker-tinged. MAC Fleshpot (P, $16.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Estee Lauder Emotional (140) Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick
Estee Lauder Emotional (140) Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick

Estee Lauder Emotional (140) Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “warm, rusty brown.” It’s a medium-dark red with strong, warm undertones and a luminous shine. It had mostly opaque color coverage–there was a slight translucency overall–and long-wear that topped in at six hours, plus it left a residual stain. It was moderately hydrating and comfortable to wear. Fyrinnae Winter Romance (P, $7.00) is slightly darker. Tom Ford Beauty Rouge Fatal (LE, $45.00) is brighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty Showstopper (134) (P, $30.00) is similar. Chanel Enigmatique (135) (P, $34.00) is more matte, lighter. NARS Majella (P, $25.00) is more matte. Guerlain Calligraphy #6 (LE) is more matte, warmer. Guerlain Gisela (LE, $51.00) is slightly darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Estee Lauder Decadent (150) Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “deep, rich red-brown.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark reddish-brown that almost looks like a really warm-toned plum. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a little translucency, but the consistency was lightly creamy, so the lipstick was easy to apply and comfortable to wear for the five hours it lasted on me. Tom Ford Beauty Bittersweet (03) (LE, $49.00) and Bobbi Brown Plum Shimmer (3) (P, $25.00) are lighter, sheerer. Maybelline Untainted Spice (950) (P, $7.49) is cooler-toned, less red. MAC Studded Kiss (LE, $16.00) is redder, darker, more matte. Chanel Farouche (122) (P, $34.00) is more matte, slightly browner. NARS 413 BLKR (LE, $26.00) is a touch redder, matte. NARS Amsterdam (P, $26.00) is more matte. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Bite Beauty Crianza Cashmere Lip Cream

Bite Beauty Crianza Cashmere Lip Cream
Bite Beauty Crianza Cashmere Lip Cream

Bite Beauty Crianza Cashmere Lip Cream ($28.00 for 0.26 fl. oz.) is described as a “dark pink with red undertone.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark pink-red with subtle cool undertones (it almost looks warm-toned against my complexion, depending on the warmth of the light around me). Guerlain Insolence (144) (LE, $35.00) is lighter. Too Faced Jelly Bean (P, $21.00) is cooler-toned. Revlon Vivacious (120) (P, $8.99) is slightly cooler-toned. MAC Pleasure Bomb (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned, more matte. Guerlain Provocative (863) (LE, $51.00) is warmer. MAC All Fired Up (P, $16.00) is warmer, matte. Urban Decay Catfight (P, $22.00) is warmer. MAC Party Parrot (LE, $16.00) is warmer. MAC Impassioned (P, $16.00) is lighter. Guerlain Gigi (P, $51.00) is similar. Guerlain Gourmandise (P, $49.50) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

It had really rich, intense color payoff that went on smoothly, without settling into lip lines, and evenly. This formula wears really long and well on me, and with this shade, it wore nicely for six and a half hours and left a reddish stain behind that lingered for another hour or so. The one aspect that I don’t find holds true to how Bite Beauty positions the product is it having a matte finish–it has a noticeable shine for at least the first two hours of wear. The formula is comfortable to wear, and it was neither drying nor hydrating while worn. It has a slightly herbal scent but no discernible taste. I’ve reviewed a few shades from the formula previously (see them here), and I’d also like to mention that one of the six tubes I have leaked and had faulty packaging (see that review here).

MAC Goddess of the Sea Lipstick

MAC Goddess of the Sea Lipstick
MAC Goddess of the Sea Lipstick

MAC Goddess of the Sea Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “dark vibrant violet [with a Cremesheen finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark purpled berry with subtle, cool undertones and a soft, natural finish. Bite Beauty Burgundy (P, $28.00) is darker, brighter. MAC Romantically Inclined (LE, $16.00) is very similar. MAC Feel My Pulse (LE, $16.00) is brighter. MAC Bust Out (LE, $16.00) is slightly purpler. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lydia (P, $18.00) is lighter, pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

It had mostly opaque color coverage, which applied evenly and smoothly without streaking or settling into lip lines. The consistency was lightly creamy but not heavy, so it is comfortable to wear and doesn’t feather over time. On me, this shade wore well for five hours and was just slightly drying. Unfortunately for me, Cremesheen lipsticks tend to be a little drying, but others find them hydrating. As is typical, it is vanilla-scented with no discernible taste. If you missed this when it launched on MAC’s website, the collection will still launch at other retailers next week and in-stores/at counters on the 22nd. You can see the reviews of the other lipstick shades from the collection here.

Bite Beauty Burgundy Cashmere Lip Cream

Bite Beauty Burgundy Cashmere Lip Cream
Bite Beauty Burgundy Cashmere Lip Cream

Bite Beauty Burgundy Cashmere Lip Cream ($28.00 for 0.26 fl. oz.) is described as a “berry purple.” It’s a rich, medium-dark berry-purple with cool undertones and a soft shine. MAC Pure Heroine (LE, $16.00) is darker, purpler, less berry. MAC Feel My Pulse (LE, $16.00) is lighter, muted. MAC Violetta (P, $16.00) is shimmery, purpler, brighter. MAC Strong Woman (LE, $16.00) is darker, purpler, more matte. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

I’ve reviewed a few shades from the formula previously (see them here), and when Sephora had their last sale, I couldn’t resist trying a few more. The formula is supposed to be a “cream-to-powder matte lip color” with intense pigmentation. This shade was richly pigmented, applied evenly and smoothly, and wore well for six hours while also leaving behind a stain. It was neither drying nor hydrating on me, and the finish doesn’t wear down to matte for two to three hours. The consistency is light-medium in weight (noticeable but not heavy), lightly creamy, and has a herbal-ish scent that is detectable from the applicator but not really when worn.

Now, something happened with the packaging on this particular tube, because I had it resting on my hallway banister, along with a couple of other shades, and when I went to put it away, it had leaked — there is a berry-stain in the shape of the tube as a result, which I greatly look forward to removing the paint and repainting. I can’t imagine what kind of damage this might have done if it had leaked in a makeup bag, purse, etc. I checked, and the cap was on securely, and it seemed to have stopped leaking color and oil (the two separated during the leaking process). I moved it over clear plastic, and it didn’t seem to leak any more, but the liquid in the tube is much more of a creamy paste as a result. Also, the doe-foot applicator arrived bent/partially snapped. I haven’t had either of these issues with any of the other shades I have (six in all), and I purchased all of mine online at Sephora, which suggests this is unusual, not the norm, but I hope it is very, very rare.
