MAC Fabulous Felines - Leopard Luxe
Lipglass: A Quiet Roar, Schemer

MAC Fabulous Felines: Leopard Luxe Review, Photos, Swatches (Lips & Cheek)

Here is part two! Be sure to read part one.

Lipglass ($14.50 U.S. / $17.50 CDN)

  • A Quiet Roar is a very pale white gold on lips. It looks a little off to me when I wear it alone, but it could be used to layer over other shades. It reminded me of Almondine (Spring Colour Forecast).
  • Schemer is a sheer orange base with flecks of copper and ambered gold shimmer. I found it applied pretty unevenly, and even though I tried to make it even, I couldn’t quite get there. I’d use it as a layering gloss rather than alone. This is very, very similar to Gold Dust (Spring Colour Forecast). This one seems a little more pigmented.
  • Wildly Refined is a pinky brown with multicolored shimmer–lots of pink and peach shimmer.  It’s semi-opaque and has a very frosty/shimmery finish.

Lipstick ($14.50 U.S. / $17.50 CDN)

  • Drive Me Wild is a reddened coral with gold sheen in a cremesheen finish. Like the other cremesheen finishes in this launch, it doesn’t feel like the typical cremesheen–creamier, smoother, more moisturizing. It reminded me of an orange version of Rose Maiden (Spring Colour Forecast).
  • Out Minxed is a sheer whitish shade with lots of multicolored glitter/shimmer with slight yellow undertones in a glaze finish. It’s similar to Liquid Lurex except less glittery and multicolored.
  • Powerful is an orange-y copper shade with lots of gold and copper glitter in a dazzle finish. As far as I can tell, it’s pretty much a dead ringer for Infused with Glam. Maybe a smidgen darker, but I don’t think so.
  • The Prowl is a semi-sheer red-tinged brown with a glossy, lustre finish. It has flecks of copper and amber shimmer in it. I did find that I had to be careful about pressing my lips together, because the color would look blotchy/streaky easily.

Mineralize Blush ($21.00 U.S. / $25.00 CDN)

  • Utterly Game is a peachy orange with very subtle sheen and no real shimmer (maybe a couple flecks here and there).  It can be built up for a more intense look quite easily, so I’d actually use a light hand if you’re on the fairer side.  I saw this on an artist at the store and thought she looked lovely, and she was very pale, but I didn’t love it on me – just made me look a little burnt, ha!

  1. I want Drive Me Wild, it’s gorgeous! I’ll probably get Powerful too because Infused With Glam is my favourite dazzlelipstick, so might as well get a back up. ;)

    Oh Christine! You reviewed Leopard Luxe LAST and it was the one I was most excited about!! You’re killing me…with glamour! ;) Anyway, it was well worth the wait. Can’t wait to go broke again!!

  3. I’m actually tempted by Drive Me Wild and Powerful =) But God, I hate how MAC launches all these huge collections all at once :( Love looking at the swatches, but hate the fact I can’t afford alot of things.

  4. elizabeth

    WOW Christine that was some outstanding turnover! Thank you thank you thank you for rushing so fast to review all these for us! As I was reading these I noticed more and more reviews being posted, and I said to myself, “Dang, it’s like she is running a marathon!”

  5. Vanessa

    OMG! Drive Me Wild is GORGEOUS! How do you think it compares to Fresh Salmon? I swapped my Fresh Salmon away because it looked too garish on me. I’m hoping Drive Me Wild will be more flattering. I’m about your coloring, maybe lighter, for reference. Thanks, Christine!

  6. Katya

    Drive Me Wild Lipstick – reminds me a lot of “Thrills” lipstick

  7. Carrie Ann

    Thank you again for these swatches. I think I could easily skip most of this collection, even though I love big cats. So far, I’m only excited about Aristo-cat l/s & Best of Breed l/g. I’m really curious about the green l/g, too. I believe it’s called Jealous.

  8. Rebecca

    I’m not really sure why everyone was SO excited for this collection.. I haven’t seen one thing so far that I was even interested in, it all looks kind of boring and blah. Maybe it looks better in person though! And Christine I appreciate everything you do for this blog and I really admire you for it! It must be A LOT of work!

    • I think for a few reasons – there are a lot of cat lovers (so who wouldn’t want a theme based on cats if they were?), and it’s such a mega-collection that there is easily something to eye!

      Thanks, Rebecca!

  9. As usual all the lippies look great on you! However I think I have dupes for most of those colors and I’ve recently switched my lipstick allegiance over to NARS(quelle horreur, I know). What I am looking forward to in this collection though are the e/s palettes!

  10. I love Drive Me Wild…that lipcolor is sexci!!! The Prowl makes you look like a model…it totally compliments your eyecolor.

  11. I must have Drive Me Wild! Can you do a swatch comparison with Powerful and Infused With Glam?

  12. Tiffany

    I keep coming back to look at Drive Me Wild! Unsure about it. How many swipes did you make on your lips to get it that pigmented?

  13. pia

    Drive Me Wild is gorgeous!!!

  14. wow. nothing caught my eye. lucky for my money.

  15. Wendy

    I’m so disappointed in Drive me wild! I was really hoping that it would be a pinkier coral, rather than more reddish undertones :/

  16. Angela0804

    Powerful is pretty. Too bad it has a glittery finish. I hate glitter

  17. steph says

    Dang, the MAC designers are clearly running out of ideas here. I guess they’ve pumped out so many collections that they’re scraping the bottom of the barrel. Maybe they should focus on quality and wearable colors (mustard gold lipglass, glittery frosty nude lipstick, really?) instead of just quantity of collections. Makes me sad to see the direction MAC is going, with it’s careless marketing of Rodarte, and now this crappy collection. :(

  18. Mandy

    Huge YUCK to Quiet Roar! As beautiful as your lips are, I can’t imagine that one looking good on anyone!

  19. Brandy

    how does drive me wild l/s compare to jest l/s? I have and love jest and they look like they might be similar..Thanks!

  20. Evanna

    I WANT Drive Me Wild. I want it so bad. It’s so lovely!

  21. Hannah

    A Quiet Roar reminds me of the discontinued Elaborate lipglass from Moonbathe…

  22. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of vikaki vikaki

    drive me wild is perfect!!

  23. sandy

    hi christine!

    I was wondering what blush you are wearing on your cheeks? Thanks!

  24. Saira

    drive me wild is an exact replica of Pret a Papier lipglass

  25. Karen

    Christine can you please swatch Ripe Peach and Utterly Game together? I heard they’re very similar. I’m so gonna buy Utterly game I missed out on Ripe peach!!

  26. Ms. Gaye Rolley

    these colors are nice would get the lip glass and save money for ud book of shawdows do you know how much its gonna be

  27. ilmy

    whoaaa!! you look so pretty Christine. You are a beautiful model
    by the way love drive wild and the utterly game blush.
    Thanks, for your hard work!!

  28. Carrie Ann

    I thought I’d ordered everything I wanted, but now I’m loving Wildly Refined and Utterly Game. They look gorgeous.

  29. Angie

    Hey Christine, your NC 25 right? I am NC 25 and I am torn between utterly game and pet me. You think pet me will look better?

  30. Marcela

    Utterly Game mineralize blush will probably look better on those that are maybe a little lighter/fair, it barely showed on your skin Christine =-(, but still I think it is a very lovely color. =-)

  31. Heather H

    Hi Christine,
    Do you think Utterly Game is similar to Peaches?

  32. Oana

    Is it just me or does “Drive Me Wild” look like a less glittery version of “Thrills” from To The Beach?

  33. Keener

    Hey Christine,

    I’m NC45 and I’m torn between Pet Me and Utterly Game, I’d love to have both, but are both shades wearable for my skintone? I will check it out in person, of course, but some informed feedback would help. Thanks!

    • Utterly Game over Pet Me, more because Pet Me is pigmented but not RICHLY so, and I think it might look rather light on you, while Utterly Game is more pigmented.

      • Keener

        Awesome, thank you! I hoping one day to find a non-sparkly pink that looks just right on me, but in the meantime I think I’ll be happy with utterly posh.

  34. Karyn

    Hi! I read your blog constantly and never purchase anything without looking at your swatches! Thanks! This is the first time I’ve commented. I have a question – how does “Drive Me Wild” lipstick compare to “Thrills” from the summer “To the Beach” collection? I have thrills and don’t want to purchase “Drive Me Wild” if they are close. Thanks again.

  35. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Alisha Alisha in WI

    Hi Christine…I’m NW25. Do you think Utterly Game would give me that burnt look or look orange? I have a problem with that sometimes.

  36. Shannon

    I think that blush looks wonderful on you!

  37. Chassy

    Hi! In the last picture with Utterly Game, what lip product are you wearing? :) I really love it, and I’m going to a MAC store tomorrow, so I’d like to pick it up!

  38. Leah

    Would you say Drive me Wild is like Thrills without the bronzed effect? I was comparing your photos of the two, and I already own thrills. I was considering getting drive me wild but I was unsure because they seemed very similar.

  39. laura

    how would you compare utterly game mineralize blush to peaches blush?! thanks christine!
