MAC Transformed Huggable Lip Colours

Now available online (originally slated for a June 2nd launch; in-store date is June 9th on my press release!), there are new, limited edition shades (along with some repromotes) of MAC Huggable Lipcolour ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.), which is described as a hydrating, “gel-like lipstick with rich, glossy shine” that wears for “six hours.” The formula tends to be semi-sheer to semi-opaque with moderate shine, lightly clingy (not in an uncomfortable way, but it wears longer than more slippery formulas) with decent wear (four to five hours) and light to moderate hydration. It is the type of formula that feels denser in the tube and softens as it “melts” against the warmth of the lips. I’ve also noticed that some shades self-level after a minute or so after being applied. I think they’re best suited for someone who likes sheerer lipsticks that are comfortable but not slippery and wants some hydration.

Urban Decay Uptight, 1993, Backdoor, Conspiracy, Nighthawk Vice Lipsticks

Urban Decay Uptight Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “warm nude [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a medium, peachy brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had fully opaque color payoff in a single stroke, and the color applied evenly due to the very creamy, smooth consistency. I noticed that the texture seemed to emphasize lip lines just slightly after I applied, but it did worsen as the color wore off (over a four and a half hour period) as the color gathered into lip lines. Marc Jacobs Beauty No Angel (242) (P, $30.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). MAC Pillow Talk (LE, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Estee Lauder Discreet (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Pinch (DC, $5.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Marion (P, $18.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Pander Me (LE, $17.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Whirl (P, $17.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Persistence (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Urban Decay Carnal (DC, $22.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Criminal, Rejected, Wrong Number, Sheer Liar, Ravenswood Vice Lipsticks

Urban Decay Criminal Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “soft pink-nude [with a Comfort Matte finish].” It’s a medium pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that went mostly evenly (it could have been a little smoother on the lips) with a very creamy, lightweight texture that glided on without tugging. It lasted for four hours on me with some color gathering into my lip lines after two and a half hours of wear. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating. Bite Beauty Sorbet (P, $26.00) is darker, brighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Magick (P, $21.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar).

Chanel Tanami, Sirocco, Rouge Desert, Adenium Aqua Glossimers

Chanel Tanami (602) Aqua Glossimer ($30.00 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is a medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a jelly-like finish–no shimmer, glossy sheen. The summer glosses are a “lighter, water-like” version of the traditional Glossimer formula. The texture was lighter, smoother, and definitely a little more slippery. It had semi-sheer color coverage–a noticeable tint to the lips but didn’t hide the natural lip color–that was comfortable to wear, moerately hydrating, and lasted for three hours on me. Chanel Sonate (178) (P, $30.00) is darker, more pigmented, warmer (85% similar). Giorgio Armani #519 (P, $29.00) is darker, brighter, more pigmented (85% similar). MAC Star Quality (LE, $20.00) is darker, brighter, more pigmented (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
