The upcoming MAC x Osbournes Collection features two shades of Lipglass, both new and limited edition (but of course!), reviewed in-depth below:

MAC Bijou Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft rose.” It’s a medium, subtly yellow-toned pink with a cream finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with some noticeable translucency, but it still covered the lip with quite a bit of color. The consistency is slightly thick, tacky, and the formula is vanilla-scented but unflavored. This gloss wore well for four hours on me and was neither hydrating nor drying. Maybelline Petal Plush (100) (P, $8.99) is lighter. MAC Picture Pink (LE, $15.00) is lighter. NYX Maple Blondie (P, $5.00) is warmer. MAC Viva Glam Nicki (LE, $15.00) is darker, brighter. MAC Angel (LE, $15.00) is a touch lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Pussywillow Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “light neutral gold.” It’s light and medium gold shimmer suspended in a very subtly yellow-tinted base (really is nearly clear). It had a moderate level of shimmer; it could be worn on its own with noticeable shimmer or layered over another lip color without covering it in all shimmer. I love a gold gloss, don’t get me wrong, but there aren’t a lot of nuances to this type of shade; the differences lie in the size and density of the shimmer/sparkle. The texture was slightly thick but not uncomfortable to wear. It wore well for three hours on me. MAC Gold Mirror (LE, $15.00) is much more opaque. Maybelline Gleaming Gold (120) (LE) is very similar. Bobbi Brown Bare Peach (LE, $24.00) is similar. Bobbi Brown Pure Gold (LE, $24.00) is also similar. MAC Pure Sophistication (LE, $15.00) is slightly more shimmery. Bobbi Brown Canary (P, $24.00) has larger sparkle as well. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC x Kelly Osbourne Lipsticks

MAC x Kelly Osbourne Lipsticks
MAC x Kelly Osbourne Lipsticks

The MAC x Kelly Osbourne Collection features four new and limited edition shades of lipstick. Each lipstick is housed in a lavender case that’s almost matte but has a slight shimmer. They’re interesting shades, and three of the four are more pastel in nature, which made them more prone to settling/pulling into lip lines while worn, rather than evenly fading/wearing away.

MAC Dodgy Girl Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “light lavender [with a Matte finish].” It’s a light-medium, pink-tinged lavender with a satin finish. There’s a slight sheen to it, so I wouldn’t describe it as matte. It had mostly opaque color coverage and lasted four hours on me, and it wore fairly well throughout, though it did very slightly “crack” after three hours. It was neither hydrating nor moisturizing, but the consistency was creamy and glided on easily. Illamasqua Posture (P, $24.00) is more matte, darker. MAC Fresh Amour (LE, $16.00) is purpler. MAC Lavender Whip (LE, $16.00) is pinker. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Digitalis (P, $18.00) is slightly pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Kelly Yum-Yum Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “bright blue pink [with a Satin finish].” It’s a vibrant, medium, fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and leans slightly magenta. It had rich, opaque color payoff, and the consistency was creamy so application was easy. The color lasted for six hours and left a stain behind; it was neither drying nor hydrating. There are numerous similar shades on the market, past and present. MAC Happy-Go-Lucky (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Sephora + Pantone Universe Radiant Rush (LE, $18.00) is darker, more magenta. Bite Beauty Moscato (P, $28.00) is brighter, cooler-toned. Bite Beauty Satsuma (LE, $24.00) is brighter, lighter. NARS Full Frontal (LE, $26.00) is more magenta. Maybelline Electric Fuchsia (LE, $7.49) is a touch darker. MAC Dear Diary (LE, $18.00) is slightly darker. MAC Pink Pigeon (LE, $16.00) is darker. MAC Daddy’s Little Girl (LE, $16.00) is more matte. MAC Candy Yum Yum (P, $16.00) is brighter, cooler-toned–this is really a more wearable, less blue-based version of CYY. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Nylon (P, $18.00) is brighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Riot House Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “light vivid orange [with a Matte finish].” It’s a very light peach with a mostly matte finish. The texture of this felt really creamy, but it still seemed very unforgiving; if you have any dryness or imperfections on your lips, this will highlight them, so I would recommend using a lip primer and/or lip pencil to improve the end result. It’s creamy enough that it tends to thicken but not distribute evenly–it moves around, creating “lines” if you press your lips together at all. The color is pretty close to full coverage, and it wears for three and a half hours. It starts to pull and settle into lip lines, though, as it wears. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Hollywood (P, $18.00) is very shimmery, less peach. MAC Sweet & Sour (LE, $16.00) is darker. MAC Salute (LE, $16.00) is yellower. MAC Peachstock (P, $16.00) is darker, browner. MAC Nearly Nude (LE, $16.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Strip Poker Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “light nude [with a Matte finish].” It’s a light, pink-tinged beige with a matte finish. It had full, opaque color coverage, while the formula on this shade was lightly creamy but not too thick, so it was more manageable to apply and wear than Riot House. The color wore well for three and a half hours, and it did slightly pull into lip lines over time but not too noticeably. It was a touch drying, unfortunately. Maybelline Blushing Beige (915) (P, $7.49) is darker, warmer. Maybelline Bare All (910) (P, $7.49) is sheerer. MAC Pret-a-Pretty (LE, $17.00) is similar. MAC Ruffian Naked (LE, $16.00) is slightly cooler-toned. MAC Myth (P, $16.00) is pinker-tinged. MAC Fleshpot (P, $16.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Estee Lauder Emotional (140) & Decadent (150) Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks

Estee Lauder Emotional (140) Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick
Estee Lauder Emotional (140) Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick

Estee Lauder Emotional (140) Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “warm, rusty brown.” It’s a medium-dark red with strong, warm undertones and a luminous shine. It had mostly opaque color coverage–there was a slight translucency overall–and long-wear that topped in at six hours, plus it left a residual stain. It was moderately hydrating and comfortable to wear. Fyrinnae Winter Romance (P, $7.00) is slightly darker. Tom Ford Beauty Rouge Fatal (LE, $45.00) is brighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty Showstopper (134) (P, $30.00) is similar. Chanel Enigmatique (135) (P, $34.00) is more matte, lighter. NARS Majella (P, $25.00) is more matte. Guerlain Calligraphy #6 (LE) is more matte, warmer. Guerlain Gisela (LE, $51.00) is slightly darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Estee Lauder Decadent (150) Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “deep, rich red-brown.” It’s a slightly muted, medium-dark reddish-brown that almost looks like a really warm-toned plum. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a little translucency, but the consistency was lightly creamy, so the lipstick was easy to apply and comfortable to wear for the five hours it lasted on me. Tom Ford Beauty Bittersweet (03) (LE, $49.00) and Bobbi Brown Plum Shimmer (3) (P, $25.00) are lighter, sheerer. Maybelline Untainted Spice (950) (P, $7.49) is cooler-toned, less red. MAC Studded Kiss (LE, $16.00) is redder, darker, more matte. Chanel Farouche (122) (P, $34.00) is more matte, slightly browner. NARS 413 BLKR (LE, $26.00) is a touch redder, matte. NARS Amsterdam (P, $26.00) is more matte. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Bite Beauty Crianza Cashmere Lip Cream

Bite Beauty Crianza Cashmere Lip Cream
Bite Beauty Crianza Cashmere Lip Cream

Bite Beauty Crianza Cashmere Lip Cream ($28.00 for 0.26 fl. oz.) is described as a “dark pink with red undertone.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark pink-red with subtle cool undertones (it almost looks warm-toned against my complexion, depending on the warmth of the light around me). Guerlain Insolence (144) (LE, $35.00) is lighter. Too Faced Jelly Bean (P, $21.00) is cooler-toned. Revlon Vivacious (120) (P, $8.99) is slightly cooler-toned. MAC Pleasure Bomb (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned, more matte. Guerlain Provocative (863) (LE, $51.00) is warmer. MAC All Fired Up (P, $16.00) is warmer, matte. Urban Decay Catfight (P, $22.00) is warmer. MAC Party Parrot (LE, $16.00) is warmer. MAC Impassioned (P, $16.00) is lighter. Guerlain Gigi (P, $51.00) is similar. Guerlain Gourmandise (P, $49.50) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

It had really rich, intense color payoff that went on smoothly, without settling into lip lines, and evenly. This formula wears really long and well on me, and with this shade, it wore nicely for six and a half hours and left a reddish stain behind that lingered for another hour or so. The one aspect that I don’t find holds true to how Bite Beauty positions the product is it having a matte finish–it has a noticeable shine for at least the first two hours of wear. The formula is comfortable to wear, and it was neither drying nor hydrating while worn. It has a slightly herbal scent but no discernible taste. I’ve reviewed a few shades from the formula previously (see them here), and I’d also like to mention that one of the six tubes I have leaked and had faulty packaging (see that review here).

MAC Goddess of the Sea Lipstick

MAC Goddess of the Sea Lipstick

MAC Goddess of the Sea Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “dark vibrant violet [with a Cremesheen finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark purpled berry with subtle, cool undertones and a soft, natural finish. Bite Beauty Burgundy (P, $28.00) is darker, brighter. MAC Romantically Inclined (LE, $16.00) is very similar. MAC Feel My Pulse (LE, $16.00) is brighter. MAC Bust Out (LE, $16.00) is slightly purpler. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lydia (P, $18.00) is lighter, pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

It had mostly opaque color coverage, which applied evenly and smoothly without streaking or settling into lip lines. The consistency was lightly creamy but not heavy, so it is comfortable to wear and doesn’t feather over time. On me, this shade wore well for five hours and was just slightly drying. Unfortunately for me, Cremesheen lipsticks tend to be a little drying, but others find them hydrating. As is typical, it is vanilla-scented with no discernible taste. If you missed this when it launched on MAC’s website, the collection will still launch at other retailers next week and in-stores/at counters on the 22nd. You can see the reviews of the other lipstick shades from the collection here.

Bite Beauty Burgundy Cashmere Lip Cream

Bite Beauty Burgundy Cashmere Lip Cream
Bite Beauty Burgundy Cashmere Lip Cream

Bite Beauty Burgundy Cashmere Lip Cream ($28.00 for 0.26 fl. oz.) is described as a “berry purple.” It’s a rich, medium-dark berry-purple with cool undertones and a soft shine. MAC Pure Heroine (LE, $16.00) is darker, purpler, less berry. MAC Feel My Pulse (LE, $16.00) is lighter, muted. MAC Violetta (P, $16.00) is shimmery, purpler, brighter. MAC Strong Woman (LE, $16.00) is darker, purpler, more matte. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

I’ve reviewed a few shades from the formula previously (see them here), and when Sephora had their last sale, I couldn’t resist trying a few more. The formula is supposed to be a “cream-to-powder matte lip color” with intense pigmentation. This shade was richly pigmented, applied evenly and smoothly, and wore well for six hours while also leaving behind a stain. It was neither drying nor hydrating on me, and the finish doesn’t wear down to matte for two to three hours. The consistency is light-medium in weight (noticeable but not heavy), lightly creamy, and has a herbal-ish scent that is detectable from the applicator but not really when worn.

Now, something happened with the packaging on this particular tube, because I had it resting on my hallway banister, along with a couple of other shades, and when I went to put it away, it had leaked — there is a berry-stain in the shape of the tube as a result, which I greatly look forward to removing the paint and repainting. I can’t imagine what kind of damage this might have done if it had leaked in a makeup bag, purse, etc. I checked, and the cap was on securely, and it seemed to have stopped leaking color and oil (the two separated during the leaking process). I moved it over clear plastic, and it didn’t seem to leak any more, but the liquid in the tube is much more of a creamy paste as a result. Also, the doe-foot applicator arrived bent/partially snapped. I haven’t had either of these issues with any of the other shades I have (six in all), and I purchased all of mine online at Sephora, which suggests this is unusual, not the norm, but I hope it is very, very rare.
