MAC Flavour Lipstick
MAC By Request (2013 Edition) Lipsticks

MAC Flavour Lipstick is described as a “soft, muted peachy-pink [with a Satin finish].” It’s a warm-toned, light-medium pink-coral with a subtle sheen but fairly creamy finish. It had a soft, smooth consistency that applied well without tugging or dragging on the lips, and it delivered opaque color coverage. It lasted four and a half hours when I wore it, and it was neither drying nor hydrating. Urban Decay Native is very similar. Revlon Pink Lemonade is sheerer.NARS Bolero is more matte. MAC Haute Altitude is darker. MAC Ever Hip is warmer. MAC Coral Bliss is warmer. See comparison swatches.

MAC Glam Lipstick is described as a “vivid, bright pinky-red [with a Matte finish].” It’s a rich, vibrant cool-toned red with a strong blue undertone that it turns pink when sheered out. It delivered full color coverage, and the texture was slightly creamy but more comparable to recent Retro Matte finishes like RiRi Woo, Heaux, etc. It wore for eight hours and left a stain that continued on for a couple more hours. It was neither hydrating nor drying. There is no shortage of dupes for this shade, though, as it is a very classic red. MAC RiRi Woo is similar, not quite as pink-toned. NYX Chic Red is darker. NARS Dragon Girl is similar. NARS Luxembourg is brighter. MAC Russian Red is darker, not as cool-toned. MAC Ruby Woo is not as pink-toned. MAC Ronnie Red is similar. MAC Love Goddess is pinker. Guerlain Calligraphy #5 is similar. Dior Marilyn is also similar. Buxom Scoundrel is not as cool-toned. See comparison swatches.

MAC Hoop Lipstick is described as a “mid-tone rosy pink [with a Matte finish].” It’s a brightened, light-medium pink with subtle warm undertones and a subtle sheen. It had full color coverage, and the consistency was lightly creamy and like more recent MAC Matte lipsticks. It lasted four hours on me. Urban Decay Rush is more subdued. MAC Force of Love is brighter, darker. MAC Betty Bright is warmer, less pink. Chanel Hyde Park is pinker. See comparison swatches.

MAC Pink Poodle Lipstick is described as a “vivid, fuchsia-pink [with a Glaze finish].” It’s a cool-toned, fuchsia pink with iridiescent bluish-fuchsia shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage; there’s a slight translucency that allows the natural lip color to come through, so if you have naturally redder lips, this will appear redder overall. It wore five hours on me and was slightly drying. Revlon Fuchsia Shock is lighter, not as blue-based. MAC Midnight Mambo is purpler. MAC Rare Exotic is darker. MAC Quick Sizzle is cooler-toned, matte. MAC Lickable is slightly warmer. MAC Girl About Town is darker. Estee Lauder Demure is less cool-toned. Chanel Extatique is lighter. Buxom Exhibitionist is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

MAC Rozz Lipstick is described as a “watermelon reddish pink [with a Matte finish].” It’s a bold, coral-orange with strong red undertones and a matte finish. It had really rich, opaque color payoff, and the consistency was lightly creamy so it didn’t tug on lips but didn’t slide around. It wore for six and a half hours and left a light stain behind. It was neither drying nor hydrating. NARS Mysterious Red is darker. Chanel Amant is more orange, more muted. MAC Scarlet Ibis is more orange. MAC Lady Danger is more orange, lighter. Hourglass Raven is slightly more orange. See comparison swatches. (Also: In the Originals collection, you may remember Rozz Revival, which was inspired by this shade.)

MAC Tomango Lipstick is described as a “bright reddish orange [with a Matte finish].” It’s a vibrant, brightened medium orange with strong red undertones and a matte finish. It had a lightly creamy consistency that applied evenly and well, and the color was rich and fully opaque on lips. It wore for six hours well and was neither hydrating nor drying. Urban Decay Bang is slightly brighter. Maybelline Orange Edge is similar in color, shinier. Maybelline Vibrant Mandarin is slightly redder. Maybelline Neon Red is shinier. MAC Scarlet Ibis is redder. MAC Sail La Vie is similar. MAC Morange is lighter. MAC Lady Danger is very similar–perhaps a fraction darker. Buxom Rogue is shinier.

  1. Colleen

    Oooh I’m really liking Hoop.

  2. I really like Glam!

  3. Hoop is so going home with me!

  4. lulee

    can they all just come back!! they are all amazing!

  5. Tomango, Hoop, and Flavour are the ones that look the best to me. Especially Tomango. Wow.

  6. faerieevenstar

    Oh bums! I saw the eyeshadows and thought I’d pass on By Request all together and then THESE! *mouth gapes open* Oh my. I NEED these. Last year it was near my birthday they came out (October) and if it’s the same this year I’ll have the cash for them ALL Bwahaha!

    Let’s hope the best ones get through… though I can’t even decide which is my favourite… I didn’t think I’d like Tomango but it’s gorgeous. I’m not sure it would look good on my NC15 skintone, but I almost want it anyway. *shame*. Pink Poodle is very ‘me’. I think I remember this being out first time and I don’t even remember why I didn’t buy it then. I’m all excited now!

    Christine, do you know if there will be Lipglasses this year, and if they’ll avoid last year’s fiasco and release them all on the same day?

  7. Cinthia

    I am honestly so disappointed in the selection. Rozz is the only one that really caught my eye and I bet I can probably find something similar in my collection. MAC makes so many beautiful, unique limited edition lipsticks, and this is all they could muster up?? I’m sad. But this will save me lots of money next spring.

    • The lipsticks ended up being really quite dupable with what they’ve put out in the past couple of years (and even within the permanent range for some) – the eyeshadows had me disappointed (personally as a customer). They are all so dark (and this releases in Spring, so it’s an odd mix to me) – wish we had seen shades like Riot or Phase pop up. Or just some color, LOL!

  8. Thank you for these! I love Rozz and and Hoop!

  9. Dana

    OMG, Pink Poodle! I NEED that to come back…I’m still hoarding my last tube.

  10. Hmmm..not sure any of these are screaming my name. I think Flavour reminds me of TF Spanish Pink and I do like Hoop.. these are a maybe and how did my makeup wishlist all of a sudden get jam packed again anyway? :)

  11. I’ll be voting on Flavour. ;) I probably won’t make it in but the fact that it’s close to Ever Hip make me want it more.

  12. Tomango is so alluring *.* , It almost the burnt orange lipstick I want for my drk skin, I might still get it anyways.

  13. Hannah

    When I saw Mac Flavour I immediately thought of Betty Bright! Lovely shade!

  14. Sarah

    I was hoping for some exciting colors, these are all pretty dull in my opinion. I’m not sure why they wouldn’t put out some of their more original, hard to duplicate shades to get people really investe!

  15. Ivana

    Rozz is my favourite, what a nice shade. I might also check out Glam ;)

  16. NOELLE

    Id lové to see flavour hoop and glam love those

  17. I really like Hoop!

  18. breyerchic04

    I love glaze lipsticks (hot tahiti is my favorite!) so I really want to see pink poodle show up. The rest of these, i’d at least consider, so pretty good selection for me. I’ve not paid enough attention for long enough to know shades that aren’t dupable at all.

    This has been a fun twenty four hours for a lip addict!

  19. Avatar of Rad Rad

    On first glance I was disappointed with these shades but looking at them closely again I think I’ll definitely be buying one or two of them. They seem like classic MAC shades to me.

  20. Laia

    Tomango, Rozz and Pink Poodle are screaming my name right now…

  21. nat

    I THOUGHT WE SUGGEST THEM….WHY THEY CHOOSE FOR ME?????

  22. Tomango, Hoop, Rozz

  23. K

    So friggin shitty that they’re only releasing 3 of them.. I want all. Multiple tubes of glam. I miss it :(

  24. So basically, if you don’t care for matte lips, you get pink poodle (because let’s be real, satins close enough to a matte). I’ll be passing up on the whole by request collection this time around. I look at everything here and just see near dupes. There’s nothing original in the eyeshadows either. SO disappointed.

  25. AJ

    I love them all, but my three top favorite are Flavour, Rozz, and Pink Poodle!

  26. Sae

    OMG. I need tomango in my life.

  27. If it helps anyone, Hoop looks A LOT like a matte version of MAC chatterbox (amplified with no pearl), and pink poodle looks like a ever so slightly more shimmery version of MAC full fuchsia lipstick (also amplified).

  28. Hoop, Rozz and Flavour are amazing! ah!

  29. Oh man, I want them all. NAOW.

  30. If Hoop makes it through, I’d have to get it because it’s my last name :> I do like quite a few of these, tho! Rozz, Glam, Flavour, and Hoop are all really nice

  31. Elia

    Glam has to be mine
    Have a feeling it’s going to be like Rihanna’s collection
    &we r going to be on loadin pages :(

  32. Andrea

    Loving Flavour, Glam, Hoop and Rozz! Gonna have to restrain myself when these come out!!

  33. ZG

    Oh my goodness just stunning !!! love them all except Hoop.

  34. Sabrina

    Glam is pretty unique, but I have not been wowed with this collection. Sigh.

  35. Neha

    MAC Hoop & MAc Rozz!! Love!

  36. Liz

    Voted MAC “Glam” Lipstick, and will keep on voting! Thank you so much for reviewing this Christine!

  37. Raloves

    Umm, I am so tired of neon pink lippies. Actually bright lippies in general.

  38. Brenda

    Pink poodle reminds me of Big Bow (hello kitty) or Made with Love.

  39. lulu

    chrstine – how similar are show orchid and pink poodle? thanks:)
