MAC RiRi Hearts MAC Holiday 2013 Lipsticks Reviews, Photos, & Swatches

MAC Bad Girl RiRi Lipstick ($16.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “matte taupey nude [with a Matte finish].” It’s a medium-dark, rosy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had rich, opaque color coverage, and the consistency was just lightly creamy–enough that it didn’t tug or pull at the lips much but still left a matte finish behind.  It wore well for five and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. It’s nothing like Nude from the fall collection. Bobbi Brown Soft Nude (P, $24.00) is glossier. MAC Spice (LE, $15.00) is not quite as warm-toned and has a sheen but is still very similar. MAC Shanghai Spice (LE, $15.00) is lighter, less matte. MAC Double Shot (P, $15.00) is browner, less matte. MAC Brick-o-la (P, $15.00) is pinker. Guerlain Avarice (P, $49.50) is similar. Burberry Antique Pink (303) (P, $30.00) is lighter just a smidgen. Bobbi Brown Uber Nude (P, $24.00) is browner, less matte. See comparison swatches.

Chanel La Precieuse (317) & La Desiree (327) Rouge Allure Velvet Matte Lipsticks

Chanel La Precieuse (317) Rouge Allure Velvet Matte Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a vibrant, medium-dark blue-based red with a matte finish. It had rich, opaque color coverage, and the color glided on evenly and smoothly fairly well. It wore well for seven and a half hours, but it was drying on me. MAC Glam (DC, $15.00) is similar. MAC RiRi Woo (LE, $15.00) is darker, more matte. NARS Dragon Girl (P, $25.00) is also darker. NARS Luxembourg (P, $25.00) is similar. MAC Ronnie Red (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC MAC Red (P, $15.00) is similar. Guerlain Calligraphy #5 (LE) is pinker. Dior Marilyn (LE, $36.00) is similar. Chanel Rouge Byzantin (LE, $34.00) is less matte. See comparison swatches.

Chanel Surprenante (129) & Etonnante (131) Rouge Allure Lipsticks

Chanel Surprenante (129) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, peony pink with soft, warm yellow undertones and a slightly frosted finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and though the lipstick glided on without tugging on the lips, that light frost finish wasn’t as flattering on lips as the regular Rouge Allures are–it just made lips seem a little dry. This shade lasted four and a half hours on me, and it was neither hydrating nor drying. Urban Decay Fiend (P, $22.00) is less frosted. Urban Decay Rush (P, $22.00) is less frosted. MAC Grande Dame (P, $22.00) is warmer. Burberry Rose Pink (307) (P, $30.00) is darker, bolder. See comparison swatches.

Revlon Fire & Orchid ColorBurst Lipglosses

Revlon Fire ColorBurst Lipgloss ($7.49 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a vibrant, bright red with warm, orange undertones and a cream finish. It was fully opaque on the lips, and it had a lovely, high-shine finish. The consistency wasn’t sticky, not too thick or too thin, and applied evenly without settling into lip lines. It wore well for four and a half hours. I couldn’t think of anything truly comparable to this in terms of opacity and finish. NARS Hollywoodlawn (LE, $26.00) is sheerer. MAC Totally Fab (LE, $20.00) is shimmery. Chanel Exces (P, $32.00) is sheerer. See comparison swatches.

NYX Chic & Paparazzi Round Lipsticks

NYX Chic Round Lipstick ($3.99 for 0.14 oz.) is a light-medium, subtly yellow-toned pink with a soft, frosted finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a light translucency that enabled some of the natural lip color to come through. This shade wore three hours on me, which is shy of average. It was neither drying nor hydrating. Urban Decay Naked (P, $22.00) is darker, less frosted. Urban Decay Native (P, $22.00) is a bit lighter, less frosted. Revlon Pink Lemonade (P, $7.49) is sheerer. NYX Blush (P, $4.00) is less frosted, warmer. MAC Flamingo (LE, $15.00) is slightly warmer. See comparison swatches.
