MAC 4Eva, Lavender Jade, Love & Cherished Lipsticks

MAC 4Eva Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “creamy light purple [with a Matte finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark purple with cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good color coverage, but it would need another layer or so to get fully opaque coverage out of it. The consistency didn’t drag or tug on the lips when applied, but it didn’t slide around easily. The color lasted for five and a half hours, was lightly drying after four hours of wear, and did creep into lip lines slightly. Bite Beauty Lavender Jam (LE, $26.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). Bite Beauty Taro (LE, $26.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (80% similar). Colour Pop So Wavy (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). Colour Pop Be-dazzled (LE, $6.00) is darker (80% similar).

MAC Air of Style Lipsticks

MAC Dressed to Thrill Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “soft petal pink [with a Cremesheen finish].” It’s a light-medium pink with subtle, cool undertones and a natural sheen. It had mostly opaque color coverage, though the creamier, more emollient consistency could look slightly streaky at times. The texture felt firm initially, but as the formula warmed up against the lips, it applied easily. On me, it wore for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Maybelline Playful Peony (975) (LE, $7.49) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Double Team (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Saint Germain (P, $17.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). MAC Raspberry Swirl (LE, $17.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Snob (P, $17.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Naughty Saute (LE, $17.00) is darker (80% similar). Too Faced Double Bubble (P, $22.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Maybelline Pink 'n Chic (P, $7.99) is darker, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Urban Decay Bobby Dazzle, Walk of Shame, Barfly, Earthling, Trick Vice Lipsticks

Urban Decay Bobby Dazzle Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “white iridescent pearl [with a Metallized finish].” It’s a neutral-to-warm leaning white shimmer. There’s not much color to it, and I imagine it would be better as a layering shade than on its own, though the lack of base color makes it wearable on its own. The consistency had some slip, was on the thinner side, and wasn’t drying when worn, though I had some of the milkiness seem to settle into lip lines. The shimmer wasn’t too noticeable on the lips and didn’t seem to migrate. It lasted for two hours on me. I think this shade would be better labeled as a Sheer Shimmer. NYX Stone Cold (P, $6.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Casey (LE, $35.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented, cooler (90% similar).

Maybelline Fiery Fuchsia, Rebel Pink, Berry Bossom, Blackest Berry The Loaded Bolds Color Sensational Lipcolors

Maybelline Fiery Fuchsia Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a bold, bright medium-dark fuchsia with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation that applied fairly evenly–there was some slip to the formula that left very, very subtle streaks around the edge, but I did not find these to be noticeable to my eye when looking at myself in a regular mirror. The texture was creamy enough to glide on but didn’t slide around when worn. It wore well for six hours, left a stain behind, and was neither drying nor hydrating. Charlotte Tilbury Electric Poppy (P, $32.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Dangerously Red (LE, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Alpha (P, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar).

Urban Decay Wrath, 69, Doubt, Spiderweb, Cruel Vice Lipsticks

Urban Decay Wrath Vice Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “metallic red [with a Metallized finish].” It’s a medium-dark red with subtle, warm undertones and a fine, ruby red shimmer. I find it very, very similar to Cruel, just with more pigmentation and finer, tonal shimmer. The shimmer is smoother in this one, so it has a more pearlescent sheen overall. It had nearly opaque color payoff with a creamy, lightly emollient texture that glided on easily and delivered even coverage. This shade wore well for almost six hours and was hydrating while worn. Urban Decay Cruel (P, $17.00) is darker, more pigmented (95% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Role Play (P, $18.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS Dressed to Kill (P, $28.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Urban Decay Mrs. Mia Wallace (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, cooler (80% similar). Guerlain Red Strass (327) (P, $37.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). Colour Pop Kween (LE, $6.00) is darker, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Maybelline Midnight Merlot, Smoking Red, Dynamite Red, Orange Danger The Loaded Bolds Color Sensational Lipcolors

Maybelline Midnight Merlot Color Sensational The Loaded Bolds Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a dark, red-burgundy with subtle, cool undertones and a fine pearl. It had a more natural sheen to its finish without being truly glossy, but it did suffer from more uneven application and sheerer coverage due to the extra slip. If it had been more satiny like other shades, I think it would have applied better. This shade lasted for six hours on me, left a stain behind, and only had minor settling into lip lines for me over time. It was neither drying nor hydrating. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Black Dahlia (P, $18.00) is cooler, glossier (95% similar). MAC Power Driven (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Living Legend (LE, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Estee Lauder Brazen (P, $30.00) is glossier (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Black Orchid (LE, $50.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Lingering Kiss (LE, $17.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Shame (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer, glossier (90% similar). Maybelline Smoking Red (P, $7.49) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Heart Hangover (LE, $18.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Bite Beauty Liquorice (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Maybelline Raging Raisin (P, $7.49) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Colour Pop Paramour (LE, $5.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
