MAC x Antonio Lopez 3 Lips/Fuchsia Palette
MAC x Antonio Lopez 3 Lips/Fuchsia Palette ($27.50 for 0.13 oz.) contains three shades of lipstick; Candy Yum Yum and Violetta are both permanent shades, while Moxie is a repromote of an older, discontinued shade (that was also brought back last fall with By Request). The palette contains slightly more than an individual lipstick, which is 0.10 oz., so it’s not a value-packed palette, but you may like that you can get three shades for the price point (and individually, not that they’re sold that way, you couldn’t get two for this price). It will also depend on whether you’re a fan of lip palettes or not. The palette contains an itty, bitty lip brush and mirror.
Candy Yum Yum is described as a “matte neon pink [with a Matte finish].” It’s a bold, brightened, neon fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage, though it did seem slightly darker than the tube version. It’s the kind of shade that will stain and wears six to eight hours easily. It’s neither drying nor hydrating, and it is lightly creamy–enough not to tug, but it isn’t going anywhere any time soon. Urban Decay Anarchy is darker, less cool-toned. Maybelline Electric Fuchsia is slightly darker. MAC Dear Diary is not as bright. MAC Night Blooming is darker, more muted. OCC Yaoi is shimmery, darker. OCC Nylon is even brighter. See comparison swatches.
Moxie is described as a “mid-tone blue pink [with a Matte finish].” It’s a medium-dark, pinky-red with a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage, and this shade wears six to eight hours and stains. MAC Pink Poodle is lighter, pinker. Urban Decay Catfight is redder. Givenchy Fuchsia Irresistible is slightly cooler-toned. Guerlain Girly is glossier. Maybelline Vivid Rose is redder. MAC Impassioned is slightly lighter–less red. See comparison swatches.
Violetta is described as a “bright, clean violet purple [with an Amplified finish].” It’s a fuchsia-shimmered violet that leans more fuchsia than full-on purple. This is part of MAC’s permanent PRO range, which can be purchased by anyone online. It is semi-opaque with a frosted finish. It lasts four to six hours on me usually, and it is neither drying nor hydrating. Illamasqua ESP is purpler. Milani Violet Volt is more fuchsia. MAC Heroine is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.
