MAC Life’s a Picnic & Oh My! Blushes

MAC Life’s a Picnic Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “hot reddish pink.” It’s a bold, bright medium coral-pink with very subtle undertones and a satin finish. It was intensely pigmented with a really soft, smooth consistency that blended out easily on the skin and had a natural finish that didn’t emphasize pores but didn’t look too flat or powdery either. I actually found it looked linker and less coral the more I blended it out–I can see this one’s tone changing from person to person a little more than your average blush shade. It lasted for eight and a half hours before fading. MAC Oh My! (LE, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Makeup Geek Love Affair (P, $9.99) is more muted (90% similar).

MAC The Fashion Flock, Flocking Fabulous, Nice to Meet You Lipsticks

MAC The Fashion Flock Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “bright pink-coral [with a Matte finish].” It’s a light-medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a satin finish. It’s the more updated, velvety-smooth matte formula that glides on without tugging on the lips but has some shine to the end result for the first hour or so of wear. It was very pigmented, but the thicker consistency made it harder to apply without the thicker consistency gathering and emphasizing lip lines. The color lasted for four and a half to five hours, but there was noticeable settling into lip lines over time. It was neither drying nor hydrating when I wore it. This shade is exclusive to maccosmetics.com. Colour Pop Donut (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). Kat Von D L'Ecole des Femmes (P, $21.00) is darker (80% similar). NARS Brigitte (P, $32.00) is darker, glossier (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pink Tease (03) (P, $50.00) is cooler (90% similar). Kat Von D Jeffree (P, $20.00) is darker (85% similar). LORAC Girl Next Door (P) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Flavour (LE, $17.00) is lighter, more muted (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

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 Collection 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).

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. Melt Cosmetics By Starlight (P, $19.00) is more muted, cooler, glossier (90% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Rollergirl (P, $18.00) is lighter, glossier (85% similar). Illamasqua ESP (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar).
