MAC Cool & Cute, Embraceable Me, Sweet Persuasion Huggable Glasses

MAC Cool & Cute Huggable Glass ($20.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is described as a “light salmon.” It’s a creamy, medium orange with warm undertones and a milky finish. It lost a lot of its orange impact applied–it ended up looking much more peach-like. It goes on evenly but settles into lip lines. The gloss lasted for four hours on me. Urban Decay Rule34 (P, $20.00) is warmer (95% similar). Bite Beauty Eight (Watercolor) (LE) is darker (90% similar). MAC Keep It Light (LE, $20.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar).

Too Faced Wham & Ursula La Creme Lipsticks

Too Faced Wham La Creme Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy plum with warm undertones and multi-colored glitter. It had semi-opaque color payoff, and the consistency was thick enough to fill up lip lines without emphasizing them. It glided on without tugging, but it didn’t slide around too much either. It was more similar to the La Creme formula than several of the other glittery shades in the spring launch, but it did lack the opacity of the average La Creme shade. On me, it wore for four and a half hours and was lightly moisturizing. This was also a more unique shade, due to the shimmer and warmer tones. NARS Christina (P, $28.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Milani Chilled Brandy (P, $5.49) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Didier (LE, $35.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). MAC Heaux (Amplified) (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Alasdhair (LE, $35.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Guerlain Madame Batifole (860) (LE, $55.00) is less shimmery, brighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Manic (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (80% similar). MAC Pre-Raphaelite (LE, $17.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Plum Shimmer (3) (P, $26.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Just Add Romance, Just My Type, Lover’s Lane Velvetease Lip Pencils

MAC Aim to Please Velvetease Lip Pencil
MAC Just Add Romance Velvetease Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “deep red.” It’s a medium-dark red with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage, though you can still see a hint of lip freckle peeking through, so it is not quite full coverage. The texture was a little creamier than some shades, which made it more comfortable to wear, and it may have helped prolong the wear, too, as this one lasted for six hours. It was neither drying nor hydrating. Kat Von D Hellbent (P, $21.00) is more muted (95% similar). MAC Kinky (LE, $17.00) is darker, more muted (95% similar). Kat Von D Outlaw (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Opera (LE, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Feels So Grand (P, $20.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar).

MAC Faerie Whispers Lipsticks

MAC A Sprinkle of Magic Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “dirty orange nude [with a Frost finish].” It’s a muted, medium pink-coral with fine gold shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a thinner texture than the average Frost finish has, but the thinness seemed to emphasize the natural texture of the lips. The color went on fairly evenly, but I had some color pull into lip lines after two hours of wear. The color lasted for three and a half hours in total, and I found it a bit drying overall. Tom Ford Beauty Skinny Dip (P, $50.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Supreme Style (LE, $17.00) is glossier (90% similar). Too Faced Sugar Daddy (P, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). Buxom Coral Confession (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). NYX Tiara (P, $6.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Colour Pop Crunch (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Demsey (P, $35.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Naked Coral (21) (P, $50.00) is less shimmery, darker, brighter (85% similar). Guerlain Gems (LE, $55.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (80% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pink Dune (02) (LE, $50.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

OCC Mosh & Stud Lip Tar/RTW

OCC Mosh Lip Tar/RTW ($15.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is described as a “brick burgundy metallic.” It’s a deep, reddish burgundy with fine copper/gold shimmer and a natural sheen. It was richly pigmented with a light-medium weight consistency that had some slip, which I found caused feathering after four hours of wear (though the color itself was still going strong after six hours). I was impressed at how even it applied, as darker shades (especially when liquid or slippery) tend to apply poorly. It was neither drying nor hydrating. Too Faced Chocolate Cherries (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Tribalist (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Black Metal Dahlia (P, $18.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). Bite Beauty Truffle (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar).
