MAC Dance With Me & Feels So Grand Retro Matte Liquid Lipsticks

MAC Dance With Me Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep cranberry red.” It’s a deepened, dark, pinky-red with cool undertones and a matte finish. It was semi-opaque, making it one of the less-pigmented shades in the range (but it’s definitely not sheer). Since the formula is amenable to multiple layers, you can get opaque coverage with a second coat. It took about forty-five seconds to dry down, and it lasted well for eight hours with fairly even fading. It was moderately drying after four and a half hours of wear. Milani Romance (LE, $8.99) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Silk (LE, $5.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). MAC Salon Rouge (LE, $17.00) is warmer, glossier (85% similar). Colour Pop Blood (DC, $5.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier (85% similar). Maybelline Rich Ruby (P, $7.99) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Dazed (LE, $5.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Too Faced 90210hhh, Berry Naughty, Double Bubble La Creme Lipsticks

Too Faced 90210hhh La Creme Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark red with warm undertones and a creamy, shiny finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied evenly and smoothly. It was a more emollient, slippery lipstick overall, but it didn’t feather on me over time. The formula is comfortable to wear, while the color wore well for five hours. Givenchy Grenat Initie (307) (P, $36.00) is darker, cooler, better quality (95% similar). Fyrinnae Winter Romance (P, $7.00) is more muted (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Parisian Red (P, $35.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Rouge Fatal (LE, $50.00) is brighter (90% similar). MAC Brave Red (LE, $30.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Surrender Dorothy (124) (DC, $30.00) is warmer (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Showstopper (134) (DC, $30.00) is brighter (90% similar).

MAC Back in Vogue & Lady Be Good Retro Matte Liquid Lipsticks

MAC Back in Vogue Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “peachy nude.” It’s a light-medium peachy coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage with a consistency that emphasized every line and imperfection on the lip while “cracking” as soon as I smiled. It dried down in about thirty seconds, though it was fairly easy to apply and work with. I noticed quite a few streaks when I was applying, but the majority of them disappeared once the formula dried, which was a nice surprise–so better to get fairly even coverage and let the streaks take care of themselves rather than keep fussing with it! It lasted for six hours but was very drying for me. MAC Oxblood (LE, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Peppermint (LE, $5.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). MAC Margherita (LE, $17.00) is brighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Rayezor (P, $5.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Too Faced Melted Coral (P, $21.00) is brighter, glossier (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty James (P, $35.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Colour Pop Chella (LE, $5.00) is cooler, glossier (85% similar). NARS Lodhi (P, $25.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Twist of Fate (LE, $50.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Tease Me, Temper Tantrum, Velvet Teen Velvetease Lip Pencils

MAC Tease Me Velvetease Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “light pink.” It’s a light-medium, bubblegum pink with cool, blue undertones and fine pearl. The texture was thin and unforgiving on the lips, as it accentuated lip lines and the natural texture of the lips, despite having a seemingly-smooth feel on the lips. The color wore for three hours but settled noticeably into lip lines and was drying.

Too Faced Mean Girls, Sugar Daddy, Topless La Creme Lipsticks

Too Faced Mean Girls La Creme Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cooler undertones and lighter fuchsia micro-glitter. It seemed less glittery than some shades in the spring launch, but the particle size is larger, and therefore more noticeable, than regular shimmer. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a creamy, emollient consistency that glides on like butter. The texture is light-medium in thickness, which helps prevent the feel of grittiness that you might expect from a more glittery finish. The color seemed to emphasize lip lines, which was a surprise as I don’t usually find that to be true with medium-to-dark shades. This shade lasted for three and a half hours on me. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Yaoi (P, $18.00) is brighter (90% similar). Illamasqua Welt (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, less glossy (90% similar). Chanel Extatique (P, $36.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). Fyrinnae Sexy Nerd (P, $7.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Kat Von D Sexer (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker, less glossy (85% similar). MAC Pink Poodle (DC, $17.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar).

Too Faced Metallic Candy Bar, Metallic Chocolate Diamonds, Metallic Frozen Hot Chocolate, Melted Metal Lipsticks

Too Faced Metallic Chocolate Diamonds Melted Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a light-medium taupe brown with silver glitter. It is chunkier glitter compared to the other two shades, as well as when compared against the Metals in general. I was surprised that the texture wasn’t grittier, but it was fairly smooth until the gloss wore away. It applied fairly evenly, lasted for two and a half hour (though glitter stuck around for longer), and was lightly hydrating. It’s nowhere near as pigmented as described or as most of the previously released Metals have been. Too Faced Metallic Frozen Hot Chocolate (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Satin Slip (LE, $20.00) is less pigmented (90% similar). MAC By Design (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Beach (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, glossier (90% similar). MAC Shitake (DC, $17.00) is less shimmery, more pigmented (90% similar). MAC Pale Moon (LE, $28.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). NARS Cythere (P, $24.00) is more shimmery (85% similar).
