MAC Dreaming Dahlia Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “sheer red-coral [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a muted, medium orange-coral with a luminous shine. It had semi-sheer color coverage, which applied evenly and smoothly. The consistency was lightly creamy, while the color lasted three hours on me. Givenchy Brun Createur (103) (P, $36.00) is more matte, muted. Too Faced Coral Fire (P, $21.00) is darker, brighter, more matte. Givenchy Croisiere Coral (310) (LE, $36.00) is slightly lighter, more matte. See comparison swatches.

Fleur d’Coral Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “pale creamy peach [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a light peach with warm undertones and a luminous shine. It had semi-sheer pigmentation when applied to lips. If you have warmer lips, this may look more true peach applied, but my corpse-like natural coloring made it look cooler when applied. I wish it applied just a bit more evenly, but it is a shade that shows “lines” if you press your lips together at all. I noticed some of the color settled into lip lines after an hour of wear, and the color lasted two hours on me (average lipstick lasts four hours). Marc Jacobs Beauty Pout (142) (LE, $30.00) is more matte, warmer. Chanel Melba (75) (LE, $34.00) is sheerer. MAC Woo Me (LE, $18.00) is glossier, more opaque. Make Up For Ever #N40 (P, $19.00) is similar in color. See comparison swatches.

Heavenly Hybrid Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone berry [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a brightened, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a luminous shine. It had semi-opaque color coverage–more pigmented than the typical Lustre finish–and wore well for four hours. Givenchy Croisiere Fuchsia (309) (LE, $36.00) is more matte. Revlon Fuchsia Shock (P, $7.99) is brighter. MAC Midnight Mambo (LE, $22.00) is cooler-toned, more shimmery. Revlon Lollipop (P, $7.49) is shimmery, darker, cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

Naked Bud Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “neutral sheer nude [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a light, peachy-beige with a golden sheen. It had semi-sheer color payoff, and it wore for an hour and a half on me–just very quick to vanish. It is a shade that will show some lines if you press your lips together. Marc Jacobs Beauty Dizzy Spell (104) (P, $30.00) is more opaque. MAC Touche (LE, $20.00) is slightly darker. See comparison swatches.

Rose Lily Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “sheer pastel pink [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a light, cool-toned pink with blue undertones and a luminous shine. It had semi-sheer color coverage that wasn’t quite even when applied. It was also a shade that was difficult to keep even-looking, as the minute your lips touched, you could see where they were! The color wore well for two and a half hours on me. NARS Stourhead (LE, $25.00) is lighter. MAC Raspberry Swirl (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned, slightly darker. NARS Roman Holiday (P, $26.00) is brighter, darker. MAC Dreaminess (P, $22.00) is not as blue-based. See comparison swatches.

Snapdragon Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone blue pink [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a light-medium pink with moderate blue undertones and icy pink shimmer. It had semi-sheer color payoff when applied to lips. This shade lasted for three hours on me but felt rather clingy. NARS Villa Lante (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery, lighter. MAC What a Feeling! (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery. Urban Decay Obsessed (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, lighter. NARS Roman Holiday (P, $26.00) is less shimmery. MAC Divine Choice (P, $22.00) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

MAC’s Lustre formula is drying in my experience; my lips were dry and chapped after wearing all of these back-to-back. Some readers find Lustres hydrating, others are more neutral, and some find them drying. If you have good luck with Lustres generally, then I’m sure you’ll be just fine, as these feel very par for the course for the formula.
