MAC Giddy Lipstick
MAC just added several previously released shades (that were limited edition) to their permanent range, and three of them I haven’t already reviewed in the past, so I bought those shades so I could share photos/swatches with you!
MAC Giddy Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with warm, rosy undertones and a soft, gold shimmer. Officially, it has a Lustre finish, but the texture wasn’t quite as glossy–a little drier overall–and the pigmentation was mostly opaque, which is unlike traditional Lustres, as those tend to be sheerer. It lasted for three hours on me, but it was somewhat drying. YSL Corail Jalouse (32) (P, $34.00) is less shimmery. Tarte Pink Peony (P, $16.00) is darker. NYX Chic (P, $4.00) is a touch lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
MAC Lip Blossom Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium, warm-toned pink with a gold, frosted shimmer. The shimmer makes it appear a bit lighter once applied. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and the texture was creamy with some slip. MAC labeled this a Lustre, per the label. It wore well for three and a half hours, but it was a bit drying on me. Guerlain Gems (LE, $51.00) is more orange. MAC Be a Lady (P, $22.00) is less shimmery. Chanel Fleurie (139) (LE, $34.00) is less shimmery. Too Faced Bon Bon (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer, less shimmery. Tarte Pink Peony (P, $16.00) is lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty Have We Met? (108) (P, $30.00) is slightly pinker. Guerlain Giulette (P, $51.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
MAC Shy Shine Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a soft, muted coral-beige with fine champagne shimmer and a luminous finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage, though it, too, is a Lustre finish according to the brand. The texture was fairly emollient and glided on easily, though slight “lines” were visible if you pressed your lips together. It lasted two and a half hours on me and was lightly drying. Tom Ford Beauty Summer Fling (04) (LE, $49.00) is pinker. Too Faced Taffy (P, $21.00) is lighter. Revlon Pink Lemonade (P, $7.49) is lighter. NYX Chic (P, $4.00) is pinker. MAC Coral Bliss (P, $16.00) is warmer, darker. Guerlain Rose Desir (LE, $51.00) is pinker. Giorgio Armani Blush (500) (P, $32.00) is pinker, darker, more opaque. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
