MAC Highlights, Really Me, Red Rock Lipsticks

MAC Highlights Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “very pale creamy peach [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a light-medium peach with warm, orange undertones and a natural shine. It had sheer pigmentation with a lightweight texture with some slip. Unfortunately, it applied unevenly and gathered into lip lines from the get-go on my lips. The color lasted for an hour and a half on me, while the formula was neither hydrating nor drying. This is a repromote, though the permanent version seemed darker swatched and in the tube, but it didn’t vary as much applied. Chanel Volage (227) (LE, $36.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). MAC Real Redhead (LE, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). Chanel Cheri (61) (DC, $34.00) is glossier (95% similar). MAC Pure Vanity (LE, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC You've Got It (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). bareMinerals Dream Big (LE, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Naked Bud (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Tantric (P, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Chanel Catherine (410) (P, $37.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Charmeuse (142) (LE, $36.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Solar Gold (LE, $49.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Free as a Butterfly (LE, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Yellow It-stick (603) (LE, $37.00) is darker (85% similar).

MAC Mangrove, Nifty Neon, Gold Xixi Lipsticks

MAC Mangrove Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “hot, bright red [with a Matte finish].” It’s a bold, bright, medium orange-red with strong, orange undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good pigmentation that covered evenly and smoothly. The consistency was thinner but not so thin that it dragged nor did it apply sheerly. On me, it lasted for six hours and left a stain behind, though it was also a bit drying. This is a repromote. Bite Beauty Blood Orange (P, $24.00) is brighter (95% similar). MAC Vermillion Vee (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Hourglass Muse (P, $28.00) is less glossy (95% similar). MAC Rozz (LE, $17.00) is darker (90% similar).

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. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pool Boy (P, $18.00) is lighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Mr. Blonde (LE, $6.00) is darker, less glossy (85% similar). NYX Blue Velvet (P, $6.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Deep Rooted, In My Fashion, In the Spirit Lipsticks

MAC Deep Rooted Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “brown taupe [with a Matte finish].” It’s a medium-dark taupe with gray-leanings and a semi-matte finish. The consistency was creamy enough to apply easily and evenly, while it had mostly opaque color payoff. On me, it wore well for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Colour Pop Kapow (LE, $6.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Stavros (P, $35.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

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. Maybelline Wickedly White (P, $7.49) is darker, less pigmented (95% similar). NYX Coconut (P, $6.00) is glossier (95% similar). Bite Beauty Blanc (P, $24.00) is warmer (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

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).
