MAC Black Night Lipstick
MAC Black Night Lipstick

MAC Black Night Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “black with red and gold pearl [with a Cremesheen finish].” It’s a muted, gold and red-shimmered black with subtle, warm brown undertones and a soft shine. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, and it applied better than the majority of the black lipsticks MAC has released, but the Cremesheen finish definitely gave it a more emollient consistency. It does pull into lip lines slightly over the four hours it wears. Smashbox Bankrolled (P, $21.00) is lighter, less pigmented, cooler (90% similar). Maybelline Pitch Black (P, $7.49) is more muted, cooler (85% similar). MAC Nightly Ritual (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Oil Slick (DC, $22.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Kling It On (LE, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). MAC Metal Head (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Oil Slick (LE, $17.00) is lighter, less pigmented (90% similar). NYX Chambord (P, $6.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (80% similar).

MAC Heavy Petting Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “burgundy [with a Cremesheen finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark plummy red with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly, but it could have applied better. The texture was lightweight, while the formula was neither drying nor hydrating and lasted for four hours. MAC Sweet Succulence (LE, $17.00) is cooler (95% similar). bareMinerals Queen (P, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). Laura Mercier Merlot (P, $26.00) is more pigmented, warmer (90% similar). Smashbox Fig (P, $21.00) is darker (90% similar). Bite Beauty Plum (LE, $24.00) is darker (90% similar). Bite Beauty Bordeaux (P, $28.00) is darker, more pigmented (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Velvet Orchid (LE, $50.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Viva Glam III (P, $17.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Venomous Violet (LE, $17.00) is cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Make Me (Lip Color) (P, ) is darker (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Blow (210) (P, $30.00) is darker, more pigmented, warmer (85% similar). Burberry Oxblood (53) (P, $34.00) is darker, brighter (85% similar).

MAC Ring My Bell Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “pale cool neutral [with a Glaze finish].” It’s a light, muted beige with subtle, warm undertones and a champagne frost. It had semi-sheer color coverage with a noticeable amount of shimmer. The color pulled into lip lines over the three-hours it lasted on me. I could see it working better mixed or layered with another lipstick. Tom Ford Beauty Holden (DC, $35.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Orlando (LE, $35.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC High Tea (P, $17.00) is less pigmented, warmer (90% similar). NARS Adriatic (LE, $26.00) is less shimmery, more pigmented (90% similar). Buxom Nudist (P, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Romantic Breakdown (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Jic (P, $6.00) is more shimmery, less pigmented (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
