MAC All Out Gorgeous Mineralize Rich Lipstick

MAC All Out Gorgeous Mineralize Rich Lipstick

MAC All Out Gorgeous Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “deep warm red.” It’s a berry-red with a soft, luminous sheen. When I swatched it, I did not get strong warm tones, and it even looked a bit cool-toned to me; I would argue it is closer to neutral but may lean cooler/warmer depending on your skin tone and what it is paired with. MAC Lush Life is darker, less red, and more berry–I think that the two are similar enough that if you had one, you wouldn’t need the other unless you wore this shade a lot and could appreciate the nuances between the two. Guerlain Orgueil is richer and deeper. Sally Hansen Garnet is similar but a touch cooler-toned. MAC Hang Up is a bit darker.

It applied with mostly opaque color coverage, but there was still some translucency–you could see my lip freckle and that some of my natural lip color was present. If you have more pigmented lips, you’ll see more of an impact of your natural lip color coming through.  All Out Gorgeous wore for four and a half hours, and it was lightly hydrating while worn.  I noticed that towards the fourth hour, some of the product had gathered into the lip lines just a bit, but it was not too noticeable.  The consistency was creamy with some slip, and it applied evenly without tugging on the lip.

MAC Elegant Accent Mineralize Rich Lipstick

MAC Elegant Accent Mineralize Rich Lipstick

MAC Elegant Accent Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “mid-tonal warm rose cream.” It’s a pinky-coral with a bit of rose and warm undertones. It has a soft, luminous finish that produces an all-over sheen. MAC Heart to Heart is slightly pinker and darker. Chanel Enjouee is darker. Burberry Primrose Hill Pink is glossier and more muted with less pink. MAC Watch Me Simmer is pinker and brighter. Chanel Genial is very similar. NARS Niagara is just a bit less bright.

It has full color coverage and applies smoothly, evenly, and easily–no tugging or pulling–because it has a creamy consistency that doesn’t feel thick or heavy on the lips.  I did see some lines appear if I pressed my lips together, and with how creamy the finish is on Elegant Accent, it was a bit more noticeable compared to some of the other shades. I don’t think it’s a deal-breaker, because I doubt most people looking at your lips would notice it, but it did make me fuss with it more while I wore it.  Elegant Accent lasted four and a half hours, which is nice wear, and it was lightly hydrating but the most hydrating from what I’ve tried so far within this formula.

MAC Lush Life Mineralize Rich Lipstick

MAC Lush Life Mineralize Rich Lipstick

MAC Lush Life Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “deep cool plum.” It’s a reddish berry with a soft sheen. I really thought it seemed similar to MAC Rebel, but applied, Rebel is purpler and deeper–it looks richer, in a way, on, because of the depth in color (if you own Rebel, pat on a little balm on top, and you’ll get this, though). Illamasqua Magnetism is a bit more muted, less red. Guerlain Guet-Apens is darker, more berry-hued. NARS Afghan Red is more subdued.

There’s a translucency to the overall color of Lush Life that makes it appear lighter on the lips than in the tube, and it kind of looks a bit like a lip stain (but not, because it is clearly a lipstick).  I thought this shade was very much a chameleon and changed its depth/brightness very much based on the lighting.  In my office, it looks darker, purpler (I have very cool light in my office), while in my bathroom, it looked redder and lighter (which has a ton of light, all of which runs warmer).  It’s interesting, though obviously frustrating from a photography standpoint!  It lasted for five hours, and it did leave a very faint stain behind.  The consistency was slightly creamy, not too slick but not dry, lightweight, and comfortable to wear.  So far, the range has been rather consistent in its texture and hydration (some).

MAC Everyday Diva Mineralize Rich Lipstick

MAC Everyday Diva Mineralize Rich Lipstick

MAC Everyday Diva Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “true red cream.” It’s a subtly blue-based, medium-dark red with a creamy finish and slightly glossy sheen. There’s not much to it, since it’s a creamy red, so there are certainly many similar red lipsticks available, so I wanted to give you similar shades that also had a similar finish. Clinique Mightiest Maraschino is just slightly less glossy. Edward Bess Midnight Bloom is darker. MAC New Temptation is glossier.

The color is opaque without being heavy or thick, and I think that’s really one of the features of this formula. It feels lighter and sits well on the lips. It doesn’t have as much slip as the Sheen Supreme range, but it has a lot more slip than the majority of MAC lipsticks and formulas. As a result, the lipstick glides on without tugging or pulling and delivers a good amount of color in each pass. Everyday Diva lasted five hours, which is short of wear with say, a matte red lipstick, but it is still above average wear for lipsticks and still good wear for a creamier lip product. I wish these were as moisturizing as touted (“77-Mineral Moist Complex” and “maximum moisture” are used describe the formula), though they are still somewhat hydrating.

MAC Grande Dame Mineralize Rich Lipstick

MAC Grande Dame Mineralize Rich Lipstick

MAC Grande Dame Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “mid-tonal neutral rose cream.” It’s a medium, rosy pink with a soft frost finish–the shimmer is incredibly fine–and is just barely warm-toned. Tom Ford Indian Rose is darker and less warm-toned. Revlon Pink Truffle is browner. Bobbi Brown Pink Peony is pinker and brighter. Bobbi Brown Nude Rose is more muted, less warm-toned.

The formula on this one had less slip and creaminess compared to the other shades I’ve reviewed thus far, and I imagine it is due in part to the shimmer/frost element in Grande Dame’s finish that’s not present in the other shades. It glides on well overall and doesn’t pull at the lips or cling once applied. It wore for a solid four hours, which is good wear, and it was still as moisturizing as the other shades I’ve worn. The finish is less shiny/glossy compared to other shades, too, but it is not matte.  It has mostly opaque color coverage.  There were a few, very faint, lines of demarcation present if I pressed my lips together.

MAC Lady at Play Mineralize Rich Lipstick

MAC Lady at Play Mineralize Rich Lipstick

MAC Lady at Play Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “mid-tonal cool tangerine.” It’s a coral-red with warm undertones with soft, creamy finish and a light sheen. It’s definitely not cool-toned, but it is a rosier red with less orange in it, so it’s not as warm-toned as it could be. Burberry Pink Amber is darker. Chanel Enjouee is pinker. Guerlain Chamade is pinker, less bright. MAC Watch Me Simmer is pinker and brighter. Chanel Flamboyante is a touch redder. MAC Viva Glam Cyndi is a touch more muted.

I was really happy to see Lady at Play as a shade now in MAC’s permanent range, because for a brand that launches an endless stream of limited edition coral-hued lipsticks, there are only a handful (and they’re nice!) in the permanent range.  This is also very reminiscent of Viva Glam Cyndi, only it’s much more opaque, as Lady at Play has full color coverage.  The formula was lightweight, lightly creamy, and comfortable to wear.  It wasn’t ultra-hydrating, but it did add moisture and didn’t leave my lips feeling dehydrated after wearing it.  Lady at Play wore four and a half hours when I tested it.  I thought that this one applied a bit better without the product leaving lines if I pressed my lips together.
