MAC Flamingo Park Cremesheen Glasses

MAC Look Who’s Here Cremesheen Glass ($20.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “soft pink with blue pearl.” It’s a light, pastel pink with subtle, warm undertones and lighter bluish-lavender sparkle. The lighter, creamier color resulted in a milky quality that–as you might expect–settles into lip lines. While the Cremesheen Glass formula is comfortable to wear and moisturizing, it often exaggerates lip lines when worn on its own. The gloss wore for two hours. MAC Demure (LE, $20.00) is more pigmented (95% similar). MAC Sugarrimmed (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Pagoda (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Such Sweeties (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Chanel Eau de Rose (86) (LE, $27.00) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Istria (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, brighter (90% similar). Maybelline Tickled Pink (P, $4.49) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Tender (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, lighter, more pigmented (90% similar). Maybelline Blushing Petal (505) (P, $8.99) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Dress the Part (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Be an Angel, Darling (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC The Fashion Flock, Flocking Fabulous, Nice to Meet You Lipsticks

MAC The Fashion Flock Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “bright pink-coral [with a Matte finish].” It’s a light-medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a satin finish. It’s the more updated, velvety-smooth matte formula that glides on without tugging on the lips but has some shine to the end result for the first hour or so of wear. It was very pigmented, but the thicker consistency made it harder to apply without the thicker consistency gathering and emphasizing lip lines. The color lasted for four and a half to five hours, but there was noticeable settling into lip lines over time. It was neither drying nor hydrating when I wore it. This shade is exclusive to maccosmetics.com. Colour Pop Donut (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). Kat Von D L'Ecole des Femmes (P, $21.00) is darker (80% similar). NARS Brigitte (P, $32.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pink Tease (03) (P, $50.00) is cooler (90% similar). Kat Von D Jeffree (P, $20.00) is darker (85% similar). LORAC Girl Next Door (P) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Flavour (LE, $17.00) is lighter, more muted (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Bite Beauty Pastille, Red Velvet, Rosehip Matte Creme Lip Crayon

Bite Beauty Pastille Matte Creme Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy mauve with neutral undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was one of the more matte shades in the six for spring shades. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a lightly velvety consistency that applied evenly and didn’t tug on the lips during application. The color wore well for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Tarte Fomo (P, $20.00) is cooler, less glossy (95% similar). NARS Anna (P, $32.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Clinique Plum Pop (P, $18.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pussycat (04) (P, $50.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Ex-Girlfriend, Phone Call, Firebird 24/7 Lip Pencils

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Ex-Girlfriend 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “nude rose.” It’s a muted, medium rosy brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage that went on evenly and only clung somewhat. The texture was still less waxy than I’m used to from this formula, but it was easier to use than most of the other shades in the spring launch. It wore for six hours before fading. MAC Staunchly Stylish (P, $19.50) is darker (90% similar). MAC Nice 'n' Spicy (P, $19.50) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Deep (P, $20.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar).

Bite Beauty Blanc, Blood Orange, Pink Lady Matte Creme Lip Crayons

Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.05 oz.) is supposed to be “long-wearing,” hydrating, and pigmented. It’s one of my favorite formulas for really pigmented, long-wearing, comfortable color that is more matte, though I wouldn’t describe them as a true or flat matte. There is a slight shine to them that wears down within an hour or so of wear (as you’d expect for most semi-matte to satin finish lipsticks). They come in a twist-up, large pencil format that makes it fairly easy to get precise edges and even coverage. For spring, they’ve brought back one previously limited edition shade (Blood Orange) and created five new shades to join the permanent range. The formula has a slightly herbal, lemony scent but no discernible taste to me.
