Urban Decay Roach Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Roach Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “deep burgundy metallic brown.” It’s a burgundy-tinted brown with warm, reddish-orange undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. I want to call it burgundy, but there is a lot of brown present. bareMinerals Euphoria is very similar in color; it is less metallic in finish, though. Cinderella Rococo is purpler. NARS Flowers 3 #2 is less frosted but similar in color. Estee Lauder Violet Underground #2 is warmer, redder.

Roach had fantastic color payoff, and it applied very smoothly and evenly.  I felt like I hardly needed to pass the brush across the pan to get the full color coverage I expected from the shade.  The texture was so soft and buttery, but it was a smidgen powdery–like the tiniest bit but still felt it was worth mentioning. I didn’t see any fall out during application or later on during wear, though.  The color was easy to blend out and mix with other eyeshadows.  It lasted eight hours quite well, and after nine, there was a hint of fading.

MAC Silly Nail Lacquer

MAC Silly Nail Lacquer

MAC Silly Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright pink cream.” It’s a light-medium pink with neutral undertones–it looks almost warm-toned against my skin tone–and a cream finish. MAC Vagabondage is bluer-based. MAC Saint Germain is also bluer-based. MAC Snob is warmer and slightly darker. MAC Pinkly Fresh is cooler-toned. OCC Femme has a similar coloring but has shimmer.

This was the let down of the four polishes, because it was very streaky and milky on the nail. The first coat was extremely streaky, but a second, even thicker coat did not hide the streaking entirely. It had a thick consistency, so it made getting thinner coats difficult to do and had a tendency to pool along the edges. I had to be really careful to keep my nails level so that the polish didn’t bulge on the edges. It was mostly opaque after two coats. I typically get a week of wear with MAC’s polish formula with minor tip wear but no chipping.

MAC Silly Lip Pencil

MAC Silly Lip Pencil

MAC Silly Lip Pencil ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “bright pink.” It’s a medium, brightened pink with subtle cool undertones and a totally matte finish. The closest dupe I could think of was MAC Hip ‘n’ Happy, which isn’t as bright and has a much cooler undertone.

I was able to apply this shade with mostly even and opaque color, but it had such a dry, stubborn consistency that it really takes a lot of maneuvering and back-and-forth motions to get full color if you want to fill in the entire lip. It is easier to apply if you’re only looking to line around the edges of the lip. The coloring combined with the extremely matte finish gave it a slightly chalky look. MAC’s Lip Pencils will wear for hours and hours, but they’re drying and rough to wear on their own, so they do a lot better when used underneath your favorite lipstick or gloss.

MAC Silly Lipstick

MAC Silly Lipstick

MAC Silly Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “bright pink cream.” It’s a brightened, medium pink with a barely-there sheen that turns mostly matte after a half hour of wear. It has subtle blue undertones but doesn’t pull too cool-toned such that it borders on lavender. Chanel Kensington is darker and more luminous. NYX Pink Lyric is also darker and has a glossier shine. MAC Divine Choice is lighter. MAC Pink Nouveau is cooler-toned–bluer. MAC Naughty Saute is also bluer-based.

Silly has opaque color coverage that looks even and smooth. There’s a subtle sheen after it is initially applied, but it definitely fades away quickly and leaves behind a very matte finish. It has a lightly creamy consistency that made it so the color didn’t drag when I applied it, but it doesn’t feel heavy when worn and it clings to lips (but not in a drying, clingy kind of way) to help the color adhere better and longer. I plan to test this shade late this afternoon (I just put on the Lipglass), so I’ll update with a specific wear time after I’ve finished testing it, but based on prior experience with MAC’s formula and this finish, I would expect five hours of wear or so.

MAC Silly Lipglass

MAC Silly Lipglass

MAC Silly Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as “bright pink.” It’s a medium, bubblegum pink with subtle blue undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. MAC Pink Nouveau is lighter. NARS Coeur Sucre is also lighter and has white shimmer. MAC Style Packed is brighter, a touch darker. MAC Sassy Lassy is very similar but has shimmer. MAC True Babe is darker.

It has mostly opaque color coverage, but it’s not completely full–it does this thing where it settles into lip lines and has some translucency such that the natural lip color comes through but in a more textural way. Silly has a thicker consistency (but true to Lipglass’ formula), is tacky, and applies mostly evenly. I usually see wear around four hours with MAC’s Lipglass formula, but I’ll be testing this one later today and will update if it is better/worse than that. It’s not super, super blue-based like some of MAC’s cool-toned pink glosses are, so it will be more wearable across skin tones.

MAC Embrace Me Lipglass

MAC Embrace Me Lipglass

MAC Embrace Me Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as “bright fuchsia.” It’s a medium fuchsia-pink with fuchsia micro-shimmer–it is a redder fuchsia compared to the lipstick. MAC Girl About Town is darker. MAC Full Speed Ahead is less fuchsia, no shimmer. I didn’t feel like anything was all that similar.

It had semi-opaque color coverage; it added a lot of color but still allowed the natural lip color to come through. If you have a redder natural lip color, I would expect this to look and “turn” redder as a result. Embrace Me applied mostly evenly though there was some minor settling into lip lines. It did have a tendency to bunch up somewhat, but it was not as noticeable as it has been in other Lipglasses (especially the lighter ones).  The consistency is on the thicker side, and it is tacky, as Lipglass is known to be. This shade wore for four hours well.
