MAC Divine Night Lipsticks

MAC Divine Night Lipstick ($16.50 for 0.10 oz.) includes five new and limited edition shades just in time for the holidays. I’ll have full reviews, complete with wear times and ratings, when I’ve finished testing. In the meanwhile, here are photos and swatches to get you started. The color collection is available online now, and it will release in-stores on October 17th.

Exclusive Event is described as a “taupe brown [with a Satin finish].” It’s a light-medium, cool-toned brown with hints of gray and a subtle sheen. It had opaque color coverage, was lightly creamy, and fairly easy to apply for an even, smooth result. It wore well for four and a half hours, and it was neither drying nor hydrating.  MAC Nude (LE, $15.00) is much darker, browner, and rosier. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Sebastian (P, $18.00) is grayer, cooler-toned. MAC Naturally Eccentric (LE, $15.00) is lighter. MAC Growing Trend (LE, $15.00) is a touch lighter. See comparison swatches.

Flair for Finery is described as a “cool pink nude [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a light-medium pink with subtle cool undertones. It seems sheer when swatched, but it is more semi-opaque on lips; it lightens and brightens but has some translucency so the natural lip color will come through. It lasted two and a half hours on me, and it was somewhat drying during that time (typical of my experience with Lustres).  MAC Vivid Image (LE, $15.00) is more opaque, lighter. NARS Paimpol (P, $25.00) is iridescent. MAC Beauty (LE, $15.00) is lighter. MAC You’re Perfect Already (LE, $18.00) is similar. MAC Dreaminess (P, $22.00) is warmer. Guerlain Rose Innocent (LE, $49.50) is bluer-based. Chanel Candeur (P, $34.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Prepare for Pleasure is described as a “clean magenta red [with a Cremesheen finish].” It’s a pinky-red with cool, blue undertones and a soft sheen. On my lips, it turns redder (still a cool-toned, bluish red, just not so pink) and has mostly opaque color coverage–you can see a faint outline of my lip freckle. It applied evenly and easily. It wore well for five hours and left a slight stain behind, but it was a smidgen drying (this is typical for me with Cremesheen finishes, so if you have the opposite, bump up the rating for yourself). Guerlain Provocative (863) (LE, $49.50) is brighter, pinker. Guerlain Illusion (660) (LE, $35.00) is pinker. MAC Relentlessly Red (P, $15.00) is matte. Urban Decay Catfight (P, $22.00) is pinker. NARS Luxembourg (P, $25.00) is similar. MAC Love Goddess (LE, $15.00) is similar–a touch pinker on me. Guerlain Calligraphy #5 (LE) is more matte. Dior Marilyn (LE, $36.00) is very similar. Buxom Scoundrel (P, $21.00) is redder. See comparison swatches.

Private Party is described as a “dirty plum mauve [with a Satin finish].” It’s a muted, medium-dark plum with subtle, cool pink tones and a satin sheen. It had opaque color coverage, and the consistency was lightly creamy so it glided onto lips without pulling or tugging but didn’t slide around. It wore well for just over four and a half hours, and it was lightly hydrating while worn. Givenchy Violine Precieux (312) (LE, $36.00) is warmer. NARS La Paz (LE, $26.00) is shimmery, slightly purpler. Too Faced So Berry Sexy (P, $21.00 is brighter. NARS Never Say Never (P, $25.00) is more matte. MAC Positively Dashing (P, $18.00)is pinker. MAC Deliciously Forbidden (LE, $16.00) is also a bit pinker. MAC Craving (P, $15.00) is a touch pinker but similar. Guerlain Bee (LE, $49.50) is darker. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lydia (P, $18.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

You’ve Got It is described as a “pink undertone with gold frost [with a Frost finish].” It’s a pale beige with gold iridescent shimmer. It’s more like a layering shade than something worn on its own, as the consistency is thin, a little dry, and it skipped a bit on the lips. It just felt dry having it on for a couple of minutes, but I think it might work well underneath gloss or the like. It had sheer color coverage. When I wore it, the shade lasted about two hours, and it was drying.  MAC Warm Companion (LE, $15.00) is slightly more beige. MAC Secret Lover (LE, $15.00) had a cooler pink tone.MAC Ruffian Gold (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, less frosted. See comparison swatches.
