MAC Dreaminess Mineralize Rich Lipstick
MAC Dreaminess Mineralize Rich Lipstick

MAC Dreaminess Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “soft cool pink cream.” It’s a light-medium pink with a cool, gray-ish cast and a creamy, luminous finish. MAC Girl Next Door is lighter and sheerer (so it does look different on). MAC You’re Perfect Already is warmer. Revlon Strawberry Shortcake is purpler. MAC Enchantee is similar but grayer. Urban Decay Lovechild is brighter. MAC Royal Azalea is lighter.

It delivered mostly opaque color, and the consistency is lightly creamy without being heavy or thick.  It doesn’t look heavy on the lips either, despite having a mostly cream finish.  I did notice that if you press your lips together, there are some lines that can get created; they smooth out all right, but it’s worth noting.  It’s visible in the photo, but from afar, it’s hard to tell.  It was lightly hydrating while I wore it, and Dreaminess lasted three and a half hours on my lips, which is around average (four hours).  For a bit more on the formula, read my original review.

Dreaminess

A-
It had good color coverage, felt comfortable to wear, and was lightly moisturizing while worn. I do think it is more hydrating than other MAC lipsticks.

    Whould MAC Viva Glam Gaga Lipstick be a dupe? Because they look like identical twins. LOL.

  2. Kathy

    How close is it to Angel and Lazy Day? :)

  3. another shade that won’t work on me, but I’m still loving reading your reviews, Christine!

  4. Deb

    This color looks good on no one. Sorry, I know a lot of you will disagree with me but it looks like Pepto Bismol.

      This is my kind of color actually :) similar to Angel which is almost my perfect everyday.. And I cnt pull off pepto lips at all!

        I’m not getting “Pepto Pink”, either… I actually really like the shade, and used to wear similar shades years ago, and they worked quite well on me. I think it really depends on skintone & coloring of the person wearing it.

    Is it more pigmented than angel or creme up? I love the colors but they aren’t so pigmented.

  6. Krystle

    Love it! How does it compare to the Nicki Minaj Pink Friday?

  7. Avatar of Rachel Rachel

    This reminds me of Revlon Super Lustrous Primrose.

    I love the color, but I’m hesitant on the formula; however, being that it’s a new one, I think it may be worth giving it a try. At least it’s not LE, and I can actually try it in a store.

  9. I absolutely love these kinds of pinks. I usually darken them a bit using a slightly darker lipgloss over it but these are my favorite colors. This one reminds me of MAC’s Pink Fade judging by the pictures.

    Christine, how is this against Haute Altitude? Is it worth having both?

    This is really pretty!

  11. Hazel

    How does this compare to MAC Snob?

  12. Mitzi

    Out of all of the shades, this is my favorite. Maybe because I tend to buy lipstick similar to this shade. I’m still looking for Dupe of Maybelline Pink Please that was LE.

  13. Michele W

    I actually love this color!!!! I walked into MAC wearing it the other day and got so many compliments and questioned on what color I was wearing…. THANK YOU MAC!!! :)

  14. Maggy

    How does this compare/contrast with Saint Germain in colour?

    Thanks!

  15. Sandra

    I just noticed on the MAC website, that these lipsticks are listed as Limited Edition

  16. Whitney

    You seriously look good in pretty much every single lipstick swatch I’ve seen. i always look for your links when I’m searching for swatches!

    I just bought this to replace Creme Cup (LE). It’s not a perfect dupe, but it’s a lovely replacement!!

    Looks great on you, Christine!
