MAC All About Orange Lipsticks (Part 2)

MAC Razzledazzler Lipstick
MAC Razzledazzler Lipstick

MAC Razzledazzler Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “light cream peach [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a lightly pink-tinted, light-medium coral with a luminous sheen. It has mostly opaque color payoff but there is an underlying translucency and slight sheerness that is more Lustre-like. This lasted two and a half hours on me. Tom Ford Frolic is warmer, sheerer. MAC Style Surge is brighter, warmer. MAC Reel Sexy is lighter, pinker. MAC In a Heart Beat is lighter. MAC Cut a Caper is pinker. MAC Coral Bliss is slightly lighter. MAC So Vain is similar. Estee Lauder Naked is lighter and more matte. Burberry Devon Sunset is less pink. See comparison swatches.

Tart & Trendy ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “bright neutral orange cream [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a brightened, medium orange with a luminous finish and warm, slightly yellow undertones. It had mostly opaque color payoff with just a bit of sheerness–but it was definitely more pigmented than the average Lustre (which may be a happy accident for some!). I started my morning off wearing this, and it lasted three and a half hours on me. It felt somewhat drying (which is my typical experience with Lustres, so if you usually find them moisturizing, then we have opposite experiences, on average). Maybelline Electric Orange is redder in tone and a bit darker. MAC Booyah is slightly darker and more red-toned. MAC Good to Go has a strong red undertone and is darker. MAC Fashion Nomad is bit brighter/more intense. MAC Sounds Like Noise is lighter, yellower. MAC Saigon Summer is more muted and sheerer (which contributed to how much more muted it looked in comparison). MAC Morange is darker and redder. See comparison swatches.

Neon Orange ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “bright clean orange [with an Amplified finish].” It’s a bold, medium orange with strong, warm red undertones and a natural sheen. It had full, opaque color coverage, and it was lightly creamy. This shade is permanent at PRO stores (and regular customers now have access to the majority of the PRO range online). I’ve had this on for nearly four hours, and it’s still going strong. Shades like Maybelline Orange Edge, Maybelline Vibrant Mandarin, MAC Good to GoMAC Morange, and OCC Psycho are all rather comparable to each other. Shades like Maybelline Electric Orange, MAC Booyah, and MAC Fashion Nomad are a bit lighter, less reddened. Then, shades like MAC Scarlet ibis and MAC Sail La Vie are slightly redder and appear a bit darker. See comparison swatches.

Flamingo ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “light milky bright coral [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a pink-tinged coral with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a slight, underlying translucency that gave it a lighter look applied to the lips (not as heavy-looking as an opaque, creamy shade). This shade is a bit of a chameleon, and it will really go pinker/more coral depending on your natural lip color.  It lasted just over two and a half hours on me.  theBalm Strawbery is pinker, darker. NYX Stella is a bit pinker. MAC Blossom Culture is slightly darker. MAC Sunny Seoul is darker and pinker. MAC Cut-a-Caper is warmer. MAC Coral Bliss is lighter, less pink. MAC Betty Bright is brighter. Guerlain Rose Desir is warmer, less pink. Chanel Flirt is more muted. See comparison swatches.

MAC Rainy Season Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Rainy Season Eyeshadow Quad
MAC Rainy Season Eyeshadow Quad

MAC Rainy Season Eyeshadow Quad ($40.00 for 0.21 oz.) includes these four shades: Arctic Grey (frosted mid-tone gray, Lustre), Courtly Grey (matte cool gray, Matte), Typographic (asphalt black, Matte2), and Rainy Season (light warm gray frost, Satin).  This quad is, for as gray and smoky as it is, more neutral than it is cool or warm-toned.  I think on cooler complexions, it will turn cooler-toned, but on my warmer complexion, it looked slightly warm-toned overall when applied to the lid.  I wore all four shades together, and they lasted fairly well over an eight-hour period–I had some minor (but not as bad as expected) fall out from Arctic Grey but didn’t have any issues with the shades fading.

Rainy Season is a subtly, warmed-up, pale gray-beige with a satiny finish. The texture was slightly powder, but it had fairly good color payoff. I didn’t have to pack it on to get it to show up on my lid, but it is the kind of the shade that can get lost on lighter complexions. Urban Decay Midnight 15 is more shimmery, as is Urban Decay Verve, which is also darker. Urban Decay Polyester Bride is lighter. MAC Vex has a duochrome, but at certain angles, they are somewhat similar. Giorgio Armani #1 Spring 2012 #4 is more golden and shimmery. Giorgio Armani #19 is more shimmery and warmer. bareMinerals Daydream is more beige. bareMinerals Suspense is darker. See comparison swatches.

Arctic Grey is a frosted, beige-gray with more beige than gray. It is a more golden and shimmery version of Rainy Season really. It had decent pigmentation, but it has a Lustre finish, so it also has larger sparkles that were prone to becoming fall out during application as well as during wear. Giorgio Armani #1 Spring 2012 #4 is more metallic. Giorgio Armani #19 is lighter, more metallic. MAC Vex is grayer. See comparison swatches.

Courtly Grey is a medium, neutral gray with a matte finish. The texture is somewhat powdery, and the color payoff is so-so–it sheers out easily, so it needs to be patted and packed on for best results. You’ll want to avoid blending it too much, because then it looks really faded. NARS Delphes #2 is darker. MAC Gentle Fume is darker and has sparkle. MAC Fabulous Fit is slightly darker. MAC All Woman is somewhat darker. Giorgio Armani Moonlight White #3 is darker and more shimmery. Bobbi Brown Sterling is a bit lighter and shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Typographic is a gray-black with a matte finish. It has a very soft, silky texture that can be a little powdery but doesn’t look it once applied. It’s not quite a black, but it’s a very dark gray so it can look like a faded or softened black at times. theBalm Serious is darker. Milani Pitch Black is blacker. MAC Gravel is warmer. MAC Heather Belles is a smidgen lighter. Guerlain Les Gris #1 is a touch lighter. Estee Lauder Black Chrome #2 is shimmery. Chanel Premier Regard #4 is a bit darker. bareMinerals Amnesia is slightly grayer. bareMinerals Lights Down is darker. See comparison swatches.

MAC Immortal Flower Blush

MAC Immortal Flower Blush
MAC Immortal Flower Blush

MAC Immortal Flower Blush ($21.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “bright peach [with a Satin finish].” It’s a soft, pink-coral with a subtle, satin sheen. Tom Ford Frantic Pink is more shimmery, pinker. Guerlain Blush G is more shimmery. MAC Supercontinental is darker, pinker. MAC Legendary is pinker. MAC Flaming Chic is darker and pinker. MAC Shell Pearl is more shimmery. Giorgio Armani Coral Bliss is more orange. See comparison swatches.

Immortal Flower had nice, buildable color that seemed to apply pinker on the skin than it looked in the pan (where it looked mostly peach/orange). The texture is soft, almost powdery but not quite, and feels finely-milled and goes on smoothly. It does have a tendency to sheer out, so medium and darker complexions will need to build in layers and be careful not to over-blend. It looks mostly matte on the skin, but as the powder is buffed into the skin, the glowy sheen starts to come through. I’ll be testing this blush for wear today, but I generally get between seven and eight hours of wear with MAC’s satin finish blushes.

MAC Sushi Kiss Lipstick
MAC Sushi Kiss Lipstick

MAC Sushi Kiss Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone coral cream [with a satin finish].” It’s a light-medium, peach-orange with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had rich, opaque color, and the consistency was creamy, medium-weight, and lasted four hours on me. NARS Lodhi is darker but similar in tone. NARS Isola Bellla is lighter, less orange. MAC Style Surge is darker and pinker. Burberry Pink Apricot is more beige, less orange. See comparison swatches.

Sweet & Sour is described as a “soft peach cream [with a Cremesheen finish].” It’s a lightened, pink-tinted peach with a creamy, natural sheen. It is rich in color with full color coverage, and it was creamy, medium-weight, and lasted four and a half hours when I tested it earlier today. NARS Bolero is more matte and pinker. NARS Biscayne Park is warmer, more peach/orange. MAC Shy Girl is sheerer but similar. MAC Reel Sexy is pinker. MAC In a Heartbeat is slightly darker. MAC Ever Hip is pinker. Estee Lauder Naked is more matte, slightly pinker. Burberry Pink APricot is a bit darker, slightly browner. See comparison swatches.

Tangerine Dream is described as a “warm orange cream [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a brightened, yellow-orrange with a soft sheen. It’s mostly opaque, even though it’s a Lustre, but there is some translucency to the color overall. It wore three and a half hours on me, which is good as far as Lustres go. It was slightly drying, though. MAC Sheer Mandarin is a bit lighter, not as bright. MAC Sounds Like Noise is darker, more rorange. OCC Banjee is very similar–slightly yellower. See comparison swatches.

MAC Royal Sunset Blush

MAC Royal Sunset Blush
MAC Royal Sunset Blush

MAC Royal Sunset Blush ($21.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “soft cool peach [with a satin finish].” It’s a warm-toned pink with a hint of coral and a satiny sheen. MAC Legendary is less pink, darker. MAC Launch Away is lighter, pinker. Dior Pink Happiness is darker. Chanel Fleur de Lotus is warmer, more shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Royal Sunset had good color payoff and was buildable, blendable, and easy to use. It didn’t look powdery on the skin, and the satin finish didn’t emphasize pores or the skin’s natural texture. It lasted eight hours well on me, which is slightly longer than average for MAC’s satin blushes in my experience. The texture was soft, smooth, and finely-milled. The satin finish looks matte initially, but the more you buff the blush into the skin, the more glowy the finish becomes. MAC paired the warmer, more orange-inspired hues of this collection with grays, and as some readers were uncertain about how everything would work together, I did want to show how they come together (the combination of the quad, blush, and lipstick doesn’t work on my skin tone).

MAC Honey Jasmine Blush

MAC Honey Jasmine Blush
MAC Honey Jasmine Blush

MAC Honey Jasmine Blush ($21.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “soft warm coral [with a satin finish].” It’s a medium orange with subtle warm, yellow undertones and a barely-there satin sheen. Chanel Espiegle is more frosted, less orange. Chanel Frivole is much darker, redder. Illamasqua Rude is redder. MAC Blazing Haute is more orange, lighter. MAC Warmth of Coral is more frosted. MAC Cream Soda is lighter. NARS Gina is slightly browner, a touch darker. See comparison swatches.

When MAC puts out a highly pigmented satin-finish blush, it’s always a reason to celebrate.  Honey Jasmine has buildable, true-to-pan color payoff that can be as intense or as subtle as you’d like.  The texture is soft, finely-milled, and applies smoothly without looking powdery on the skin.  The more you blend and buff the blush into the skin, the more the satin sheen comes through.  It never becomes too much, so it doesn’t emphasize pores or the skin’s natural texture.  Honey Jasmine wore well for seven hours, and I noticed some slight fading along the edges after eight hours of wear.
