MAC’s Indulge Collection (online at MAC now, online elsewhere and in-stores on August 22nd for North America locations) features five lipstick shades in various colors and finishes. The only shade I’ve haven’t worn to test is Just a Bite, as it is very much your standard red lipstick from MAC (which isn’t a bad thing), so I expect it to wear well and long, but will test it in full tomorrow.

By Design Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “soft shimmering beige [with a Frost finish].” It’s a warm peach with a frosted, m etallic finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage and lasted three hours on me–it was a little drying, too. MAC Posh Tone, MAC Delectable, and MAC Freckletone are all similar in color but lack the metallic finish. See comparison swatches.

Feed the Senses Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone mauvey nude [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a soft, neutral pink with a subtle mauve tint. It had semi-opaque color coverage, and it lasted for two and a half hours on me. Urban Decay Native is warmer. MAC Haute Altitude is similar–more opaque, a touch darker. Dior Candide is cooler-toned. Chanel Confidentielle is shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Just a Bite Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone blue red [with a Satin finish].” It’s a medium-dark, cool-toned red with blue undertones and a natural sheen. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and I expect it would wear between five and six hours with some staining. MAC has released reds like this before. NARS Mascate is more matte. MAC Such Flare is more matte. MAC Runaway Red is slightly lighter. Guerlain Liu is pinker. MAC Absolute Power is also similar. See comparison swatches.

Smash Hit Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “sheer golden sparkle [with a Dazzle finish].” It’s a mix of pale gold, copper, and pink micro-glitter and large sparkle. It doesn’t deposit much color, mostly sparkle. It does have a noticeably gritty texture from the glitters. It wears for about two hours or less, but the glitter travels a lot. This shade is a repromote. MAC Ruffian Gold is less sparkly. Guerlain Altoum is more golden. See comparison swatches.

Sweet Succulence Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “deep glossy plum [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a purplish berry with cool undertones. It was semi-sheer, and it had a tendency to settle into lip lines and took some blending to apply evenly. It lasted three hours on me. NARS Valparaiso is brighter, more opaque, matte. NARS Afghan Red is more matte. MAC Red Dwarf is slightly pinker. MAC Positively Dashing is lighter. MAC Deliciously Forbidden is much pinker. MAC Plum Bright is purpler. Guerlain Bee is more berry-colored.
