MAC It’s a Strike Lipsticks

MAC Babes and Balls Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “deep burgundy [with a Matte finish].” It’s a deep berry-plum with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that covered the lips with even color. The texture was lightly creamy, which made it glide on without tugging on the lips, but it didn’t slide around or feather on me while worn. This shade was still going strong after six hours, and it was neither drying nor hydrating over that period of time. Make Up For Ever M501 (P, $22.00) is darker (95% similar). Smashbox Femme Fatale (P, $21.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Oh Lady (P, $20.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury Hel's Bells (P, $32.00) is lighter (90% similar). Maybelline Berry Bossy (P, $7.49) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever C506 (P, $22.00) is darker (85% similar). Colour Pop Plastics (LE, $5.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Fashion Revival (LE, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). Make Up For Ever M102 (P, $22.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Little Lovely, Clear Water, Water Deities Lipglasses

MAC Little Lovely Lipglass ($10.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is a light yellow with warm undertones and iridescent pink and gold shimmer. It looked almost like it had a duochrome shift on the lips, but it was hard to tell (and even harder to capture!). This shade had semi-sheer coverage, and the color settled into lip lines a lot. The texture was comfortable to wear, though a bit thicker and tackier as you’d expect from the formula, but it was hydrating over the four hours it lasted. Dior Gold Rain (164) (LE, $29.50) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Pussywillow (LE, $15.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC On Cue (LE, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar).

MAC Itsy Bitsy, Dilly Dazzle, Love You Big Time Lipglasses

MAC Itsy Bitsy Lipglass ($10.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is an icy, pinky-lavender with cool undertones and multi-colored pearl along with larger, copper flecks of sparkle. It had semi-opaque color coverage with all of the shimmer in it; the base color seemed sheerer and tended to blend in with my natural lip color, but there was a ton of shimmer in this one that made the gloss appear more opaque applied. This shade wore well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. Shiseido Nebula (VI207) (P, $25.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Perky (LE, $15.00) is lighter (85% similar).

MAC Carousel, Candy Yum Yum, Raring to Go Lipglasses

MAC Carousel Lipglass ($10.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is a bright, cotton candy pink with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered with very little streaking, but the color sunk into lip lines, which may be a deal-breaker for some. The texture was light-medium in weight, moderately tacky, but it didn’t feel too heavy. This shade lasted for five hours and was slightly hydrating for me. Anastasia Dusty Lilac (P) is darker (90% similar). MAC Carousel (LE, $15.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Pink Nouveau (LE, $15.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Patentpink (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Pure Silliness (LE, $15.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Obsessed (P, $26.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Illamasqua Indulge (P, $22.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Saint Germain (P, $15.00) is lighter, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Fashion Punch, Lots of Laughs, Short & Snappy Lipglasses

MAC Fashion Punch Lipglass ($10.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is a medium peachy-brown with warm undertones and gold pearl. The coverage was semi-opaque, but the creamier finish made this one noticeably settle into lip lines, though it went on evenly (which doesn’t always happen with this type of color or product!). I felt like the shininess of the gloss helped to disguise some of the settling from a normal viewing distance. This shade wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Spanking Haute (LE, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). Surratt Beauty Au Naturelle (P, $32.00) is brighter (95% similar). MAC Overspiced (LE, $15.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). NARS Instant Crash (LE, $26.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Kinky (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Satisfaction (214) (DC, $28.00) is darker (90% similar). Maybelline Charming Cocoa (125) (LE) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Undressed (P) is lighter (85% similar). Chanel Sensuel (11) (P, $34.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Fashion Punch (LE, $15.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
