Burberry Antique Pink (303) Lip Velvet

Burberry Antique Pink (303) Lip Velvet ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a pinky-brown with hints of beige. It’s a fairly neutral color, but if I had to pick, I’d say it leans warmer rather than cool, but I think it is rather neutral overall. Urban Decay Naked has a soft pink iridescence and is rosier overall. MAC Impressive is slightly darker and pinker. Bobbi Brown Heather Pink is a touch pinker. Guerlain Avarice is brighter, pinker. MAC Spice is very comparable. Bobbi Brown Uber Nude is browner–lacks the rosiness of this shade.

MAC Perky Lipglass (Taste Temtpation)

MAC Perky Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone shimmering lilac.” It’s a light-medium lilac purple with lighter lilac and multi-colored shimmer. On my lips, it adds a light lavender color but it’s the multitude of shimmer that really stands out. MAC Docile is lighter, less shimmery. MAC Gone Romancin’ is lighter and more tinted. MAC Frozen Dream has less shimmer.

MAC 3N & Runaway Red Lipsticks (Making Pretty)

MAC Making Pretty Lipsticks ($28.00 for 0.15 oz. each) are available in two shades: 3N (milky pastel pink) and Runaway Red (rich red-blue).  Both shades are repromotes, though they were well-received shades.  The collection online yesterday, and I immediately placed my order and overnighted everything, but unfortunately 3N has already sold out.  To find it, you’ll have to find a MAC freestanding on December 13th or Pro store on December 6th.
