MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande Lipstick & Lipglass

MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “shimmering pink.” It’s a sheer, pink-tinted gloss with moderate gold and pink sparkle. It lightens my natural lip color slightly but yields primarily shine and sparkle. It can be layered over another lip color, including the lipstick. I noticed this particular shade seemed tackier than recent Lipglasses, though not quite as thick as The gloss lasted for three hours on me. Sephora Good Fairy (LE, $14.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Rose de Lune (LE, $30.00) is more pigmented (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Love Buzz (324) (P, $28.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Eau de Rose (86) (LE, $27.00) is cooler (90% similar). Chanel Star (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Recollection & Tailored to Tease Matte Liquid Lipsticks

MAC Recollection Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as an “intense bright violet.” It’s a slightly brightened, medium-dark violet purple with subtle, cool fuchsia undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a smooth, matte finish. It applied evenly for the most part, but there were a few areas that seemed to have less coverage than others; I didn’t think it was noticeable from a normal viewing distance, just up-close. The color wore well for six and a half hours but was moderately drying after four hours. Too Faced Unicorn (P, $21.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Illamasqua ESP (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). Melt Cosmetics By Starlight (P, $19.00) is more muted, cooler, glossier (90% similar).

MAC Faerie Whispers Cremesheen Glasses

MAC Calypso Beat Cremesheen Glass ($20.00 for 0.09 fl. oz.) is described as a “neutral pink with pearl.” It’s a light-medium, pink-coral with wamr undertones and white shimmer. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a smooth, lightweight texture that was non-tacky and comfortable to wear, though it emphasized lip lines with its lighter color. On me, it wore for two and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC On the Scene (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Sephora Perfect Nude (04) (P, $14.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

MAC Quite the Standout & Rich & Restless Matte Liquid Lipsticks

MAC Quite the Standout Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright orange-red.” It’s a bright, medium orange with warm, red undertones and a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented with a slightly thin consistency that applied with smooth, even color and no visible streaking (once it dried down). This was one of the better shades in the range, as it had the very matte finish but didn’t make lips look dry. It lasted for seven hours but was somewhat drying. Sephora Mandarin Muse (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Countess (P, $21.00) is darker (95% similar). Tarte Cray Cray (P, $20.00) is darker, more muted, glossier (90% similar). Bite Beauty Clementine (LE, $24.00) is glossier (90% similar). MAC Lady Danger (P, $17.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). MAC Tomango (LE, $17.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar).

MAC High Drama & Oh Lady Retro Matte Liquid Lipsticks

MAC High Drama Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep dark plum.” It’s a blackened plum with cool undertones and a matte finish. While a lot of the darker shades actually out-performed light and medium shades, this one was more of a miss. It needs at least two coats, if not a lip liner underneath just to manage some of the unevenness/streakiness present in the shade itself. It had semi-opaque coverage and a longer dry down time (two minutes). On me, it wore for seven hours and was moderately drying after four hours of wear. MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande (LE, $17.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). Tarte Bonfire (P, $22.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Too Faced Maneater (P, $22.00) is glossier (90% similar). Kat Von D Motorhead (P, $21.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Kat Von D Damned (P, $20.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Sin (P, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Talk That Talk (LE, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Eugenie (LE, $17.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
