MAC Hellebore, Ambrosial, Marsala Liptensity Lipsticks

MAC Hellebore Liptensity Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a dark purple with warm, pink undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It had good pigmentation but was not “one-stroke” coverage. After about half of a pass on the lips, the consistency started to melt and felt more gel-like as I applied it, but it tugged a bit initially. The color applied fairly evenly, but the application would benefit from a lip liner underneath for better, more even coverage overall. This shade lasted nicely for six and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Colour Pop Leather (P, $5.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Speedball (P, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Strong Woman (LE, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Punk Couture (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Jawbreaker (P, $17.00) is cooler, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Own the Look (LE, $19.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). Urban Decay Pandemonium (P, $17.00) is cooler (85% similar). Maybelline Violet Vixen (P, $7.49) is cooler (85% similar). Smashbox Violet Riot (P, $21.00) is cooler (85% similar).

MAC x Selena Eyeshadows

MAC Missing My Baby Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “light pinky nude beige [with a Matte finish].” It’s a soft, light-medium, pink with strong, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, blendable, and easy to work with. I was surprised that it did not darken too much on bare lids, nor did it become dry or patchy. On me, the color wore well for seven and a half hours. bareMinerals Beautiful (LE) is warmer (95% similar). YSL Paris #2 (LE) is lighter (95% similar).

MAC x Selena Techno Cumbia Powder Blush Duo

MAC Techno Cumbia Blush Duo ($29.00 for TBA oz.) is blush duo that features a split-pan with more of the deeper shade (Blunt) and a smaller portion of the lighter shade (Ven Conmigo). The smaller blush is hard to apply on its own, as it doesn’t accommodate the average blush brush well, and even my smaller blush brushes were too large and I had to pinch the brush head to get it to narrow and fit in the area. This was the weakest product in the collection, so I figured we’d get it out of the way.
