MAC Dreampot, Dew, Punk Couture Lipsticks

MAC Dreampot Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “light candy blue [with a Matte finish].” It’s a bright, cyan blue with cool undertones and a satin finish–there was a slight sheen to it. It had good pigmentation with a moderately creamy texture that glided on well and didn’t tug on the lips, but it could have applied more evenly. The color seemed to get in some of the lip lines on my lower lips after three hours of wear, though it lasted for nearly five in total. It was neither drying nor hydrating. Colour Pop Mr. Blonde (LE, $6.00) is darker, less glossy (85% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pool Boy (P, $18.00) is lighter (85% similar). NYX Blue Velvet (P, $6.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay F-Bomb, Temper, Zealot, Bad Blood, 714 Vice Lipsticks

Urban Decay F-Bomb Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “classic red [with a Cream finish].” It’s a bright, medium-dark red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It was nicely pigmented with full color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly. The consistency was dense enough that it helped to fill in lines and make lips appear plumper and smoother. This shade wore well for six hours and was lightly hydrating. Maybelline Infra-red (LE, $7.49) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay F-Bomb (DC, $22.00) is less glossy (95% similar).

Urban Decay Sancho, Rock Steady, Plaid, Gash, Mrs. Mia Wallace Vice Lipsticks

Urban Decay Sancho Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “deep red shimmer [with a Metallized finish].” It’s a medium-dark, pinky-red with cool undertones and fine, fuchsia and red micro-shimmer. It had mostly opaque pigmentation, and it felt more like a Cream than a lot of the Metallized shades do, though it wasn’t as shimmery as some of the Metallized shades! The texture was lightweight, emollient but not too slippery, and was comfortable to wear. On me, this shade wore well for five and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. Tom Ford Beauty Leonardo (P, $35.00) is darker (90% similar). Guerlain L'Heure Bleue (P, $37.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Bite Beauty Tannin (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, lighter, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Dangerously Chic (P, $23.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). Urban Decay Gash (DC, $22.00) is darker (90% similar). Guerlain Vega (P, $37.00) is darker (90% similar). Guerlain Gwen (LE, $55.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop JujuRouge (LE, $5.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Guerlain Samsara (P, $37.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Gash (P, $17.00) is darker (85% similar).

MAC Frosted, Lazy Lullaby, Lightly Charred Lipsticks

MAC Frosting Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “pure white [with a Matte finish].” It’s a bright, stark white with a matte finish. It was pretty pigmented with nearly full coverage, but the consistency was a little drier and seemed chalky to me, so it didn’t apply the best. Some of the color “cracked” as I smiled, and it could have gone on more evenly. For those who aren’t looking for a full, opaque white to wear on its own, it might be more appealing as a mixing shade, as it will lighten anything you add to it. In my experience, it does seem to stretch other formulas and make them appear a little less smooth on. I was able to minimize this effect by applying some of the white first, then layering the darker shade on top with fingertips (the warmth helped maneuver everything into place). The shade lasted for four hours on its own and was lightly drying. NYX Coconut (P, $6.00) is glossier (95% similar). Bite Beauty Blanc (P, $24.00) is warmer (95% similar). Maybelline Wickedly White (P, $7.49) is darker, less pigmented (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
