MAC Just Add Romance, Just My Type, Lover’s Lane Velvetease Lip Pencils

MAC Aim to Please Velvetease Lip Pencil
MAC Just Add Romance Velvetease Lip Pencil ($20.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “deep red.” It’s a medium-dark red with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage, though you can still see a hint of lip freckle peeking through, so it is not quite full coverage. The texture was a little creamier than some shades, which made it more comfortable to wear, and it may have helped prolong the wear, too, as this one lasted for six hours. It was neither drying nor hydrating. Kat Von D Hellbent (P, $21.00) is more muted (95% similar). MAC Kinky (LE, $17.00) is darker, more muted (95% similar). Kat Von D Outlaw (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Opera (LE, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Feels So Grand (P, $20.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar).

MAC Faerie Whispers Lipsticks

MAC A Sprinkle of Magic Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “dirty orange nude [with a Frost finish].” It’s a muted, medium pink-coral with fine gold shimmer. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a thinner texture than the average Frost finish has, but the thinness seemed to emphasize the natural texture of the lips. The color went on fairly evenly, but I had some color pull into lip lines after two hours of wear. The color lasted for three and a half hours in total, and I found it a bit drying overall. Tom Ford Beauty Skinny Dip (P, $50.00) is more shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Supreme Style (LE, $17.00) is glossier (90% similar). Too Faced Sugar Daddy (P, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). Buxom Coral Confession (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). NYX Tiara (P, $6.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Colour Pop Crunch (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Demsey (P, $35.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Naked Coral (21) (P, $50.00) is less shimmery, darker, brighter (85% similar). Guerlain Gems (LE, $55.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (80% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Pink Dune (02) (LE, $50.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Foiled Eyeshadows (Part 2)

MAC Magic In Your Eyes Foiled Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “soft lilac.” It’s a muted, medium-dark purple with warm, mauve undertones and a silver sparkle over a more metallic finish. It had great pigmentation whether used dry or damp, but the finish became more metallic when used damp. This shade applied well and blended out easily, while the color wore for eight hours before creasing. MAC Tendersmoke (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Plum Grand (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Circa Plum (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Cle de Peau Cosmic Aura #3 (P) is less shimmery (90% similar).

MAC Foiled Eyeshadows (Part 1)

MAC Foiled Eyeshadow ($20.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, limited edition formula (we’ll probably never see it again, because when MAC puts out a good holiday formula, you now, like Mega Metals, it’ll disappear forever!) that can be used wet or dry. I don’t have much more information about the formula than that, though, so I am making an assumption that they will be sheerer dry and more intense damp (which is how MAC has touted their wet/dry eyeshadow formulas in the past). That being said, when the collection launches online, I will go back and see if there are more specific claims and make any relevant updates at that time.

MAC Cheek Pollen & Spellbinder Blushes

MAC Cheek Pollen Blush ($22.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “warm nude [with a Satin finish].” It’s a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a satin shimmer-sheen finish. It was richly pigmented with a really soft, smooth, almost buttery consistency that applied well to the skin. It blended out beautifully, while the satin finish gave the skin luminosity without emphasizing pores. On me, it lasted for eight hours. Becca Rose Gold (P, $41.00) is less shimmery, less pigmented (90% similar). NARS Cheek Studio III (LE, $30.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar).
