MAC Magnetic Nude Lipsticks

In the MAC Magnetic Nude collection, there are four shades of Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) releasing. The collection will be available in-stores and at-counter on December 26th.

Carnal Instinct is described as a “deep brick red with gold pearl [with a Frost finish].” It’s a medium-dark, reddish-brown with copper flecks of shimmer. It had mostly opaque color coverage, applied evenly overall, and was lightly creamy. It wore well for five and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Extended Play (P, $18.00) is less brown. MAC Legendary (LE, $16.00) is darker, browner, less shimmery. MAC Camden Chic (LE, $16.00) is slightly redder. MAC Subverted (LE, $15.00) is a touch more metallic but is very similar. MAC Show-All (LE, $15.00) is slightly redder. See comparison swatches.

Close Contact is described as a “creamy peach [with an Amplified finish].” It’s a light-medium peach with warm undertones and a creamy, liightly shiny finish. It had opaque color coverage and creamy consistency, though it was almost too creamy, so it sometimes bunched up on itself during application. The color wore well for three and a half hours. Givenchy Beige Mousseline (101) (P, $36.00) is warmer, darker. MAC Antonio’s Girls (LE, $15.00) is a touch darker, more matte. MAC Sweet & Sour (LE, $15.00) is slightly warmer. MAC Luxe Natural (P, $22.00) is similar. MAC Pure Decoration (LE, $15.00) is more orange. MAC Nearly Nude (LE, $15.00) is also more orange. Buxom Nudist (P, $21.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches.

Morning Rose is described as a “soft cool rose [with a Cremesheen finish].” It’s a medium, rosy pink with soft, warm undertones and a lightly frosted sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff, and it did apply evenly, though the consistency did drag a little. It lasted for three hours on me and was lightly drying (which is typical of my experience with this finish–if Cremesheens are normally hydrating, it would probably be fine for you!). L’Oreal I Pink You’re Cute (175) (P, $8.95) is lighter. Chanel Surprenante (129) (P, $34.00) is a touch brighter. Chanel Equivoque (126) (LE, $34.00) is warmer. Urban Decay Fiend (P, $22.00) is less shimmery. Tom Ford Beauty Indian Rose (P, $49.00) is a touch darker. MAC Venus (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC Sunny Seoul (LE, $15.00) is a touch lighter. See comparison swatches.

Sensual Sparks is described as a “dirty cool caramel [with an Amplified finish].” It’s a muted, peachy-orange with subtle warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff, and the consistency was very creamy and glided on without tugging or pulling on the lip. It lasted three hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. Too Faced Naughty Nude (P, $21.00) is sheerer. Urban Decay Naked 2 (P, $22.00) is browner. NARS Isola Bella (P, $25.00) is warmer, brighter. NARS Biscayne Park (P, $25.00) is lighter. NARS Floralies (P, $25.00) is similar. MAC Posh Tone (P, $22.00) is warmer, darker. MAC Delectable (LE, $16.00) is similar. MAC Wholesome (LE, $15.00) is a little lighter. MAC Cozy Up (LE, $15.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.
