MAC Dish It Up Lipstick
MAC Dish It Up Lipstick

MAC Shop MAC, Cook MAC: Lipsticks

The collection features six limited edition shades of MAC Lipstick ($14.50 for 0.10 oz.). These shades include: Dish It Up (berry pink), Innocence, Beware! (light yellow pink), Naughty Saute (bright pepto pink), Quick Sizzle (bright pink), Runaway Red (rich red-blue), and Watch Me Simmer (bright pink-orange).

  • Dish It Up is a muted, medium-dark fuchsia-plum with semi-opaque color coverage and a natural sheen. It has a lustre finish, so it’s supposed to be semi-sheer and moisturizing. I don’t find the finish to be hydrating; I actually find it a bit drying. The color coverage is actually much more than anticipated based on the finish. MAC Plum Bright is much, much darker and less pink. MAC Hot Gossip is lighter and pinker. MAC Love Forever is brighter, pinker, bluer-based. MAC Something New was the most similar but still pinker and more vibrant.
  • Innocence, Beware! is a pink-tinted pale, fleshy beige with subtle pink micro-shimmer and a natural sheen. It has a cremesheen finish and yields mostly opaque color coverage. MAC Naked Bliss is a few shades darker and less pink. Maybelline Born With It is a bit less pink. MAC Hue is less pink-toned.
  • Naughty Saute is a vibrant blue-based light-medium pink with a good amount of sheen. It really does resemble Pepto Bismol. It has a cremesheen finish. It has a lot of glide and slip, so it doesn’t always apply evenly around the edges. MAC Viva Glam Gaga is much lighter. MAC All Styled Up is much lighter, less blue-toned. MAC Pink Friday is just as blue-based, but it’s lighter.
  • Quick Sizzle is a bright blue-based fuchsia pink with opaque color coverage. It has a matte finish. It’s not one of the dry-type of mattes; it’s creamy and applies evenly without pulling at lips. Make Up For Ever #203 is slightly pinker, less blue-based. MAC Show Orchid is less pink, iridescent. Milani Rose Hip is slightly lighter. NARS Schiap looks about the same. MAC Candy Yum Yum is more magenta, less pink. OCC Pretty Boy is darker. MAC Rare Exotic is darker, pinker. MAC Pink Pigeon is more fuchsia.
  • Runaway Red is a medium-dark blue-based red with a subtle fuchsia sheen. It’s mostly opaque on lips, but there is a hint of translucence. It has a satin finish. Make Up For Ever #48 and MAC Dark Side are browner. Guerlain Gwen is closer but not quite as dark. MAC Digna is similar but not as opaque.
  • Watch Me Simmer is a vibrant coral that leans just a tinge pink but comes across as a truer coral. It has an amplified finish. MAC Ultra Darling is pinker and less vibrant. Wet ‘n’ Wild Hot Paris Pink is pinker. OCC Trollop is slightly pinker. Make Up For Ever #37 is a bit darker. Chanel Phoenix is a touch darker. Bite Beauty Rose is slightly more orange. MAC Full Speed is very similar. VS Be Mine is pinker.

MAC lipsticks are vanilla-scented and tend to wear three to four hours on me on average.  Finishes like lustres tend to disappear within two hours, but I suspect the more opaque Dish It Up should get to around three hours.  Matte, satin, and amplified finishes tend to wear four to five hours, and some of the darker and more intense shades, like Quick Sizzle and Runaway Red, tend to last six hours or longer and typically stain the lips a little.

P.S. — If you’re worried about not being able to snag some of the lipsticks, because some have sold out on MAC’s website, the collection is still due to launch at other retailers, like Nordstrom, Macy’s, etc. as well as in-stores.

A-
The two shades that sold out so quickly were the two shades I found most dupeable, so hopefully that's good news for those of you who were disappointed to see them sell so quickly! These are pretty much on target with other MAC lipsticks; no real discrepancies (good or bad).

    Does Naughty Saute resemble Real Doll from the Barbie collection?

  2. LaceyS

    Is there any way that Naughty Saute can compre to the new Viva Glam Nicki? I wonder if I would waste my money getting both. I will get VGN but Naughty Saute looks pretty, but I wish I could see a side by side!

  3. pixill

    How does Watch me simmer compare to Full Speed in the Sheen Supreme Lipsticks?

  4. Allie

    IMO, Dish It Up is basically Plumful (at least on me).

    I tried Plumful on my bottom lip and Dish It Up on my top and I couldn’t really tell a difference. Neither could the MA, lol. xD

  5. Denise

    Would you say that Quick Sizzle is basically a matte version of Girl About Town? I love GAT but I want a long wearing version.
    QS is sold out everywhere but I was hoping if/when the MAC website restocks, I could grab one. Thanks.

  6. Krystin

    i swatched quick sizzle at the counter i think its exactly the same as girl about town

    • Ava

      Yes, I agree with you! So ladies and gents – for those who weren’t able to get “Quick Sizzle”, please do not feel bad. I just got my own “Quick sizzle” yesterday and when swatched, it was 98% close to “Girl about town”. It is also a very close dupe to the prolong wear lip-glosses, specifically “full speed ahead”. I’m thinking of returning my “quick sizzle” and hopefully give it to someone who loves it more than I do. Just a caution: it really stains your lips. I would prefer the prolong lipgloss over this lippie.

  7. Emily

    Is Watch Me Simmer similar to MAC’s Ever Hip?

  8. Sara

    I find your examples to be spot on and thank you for having this site.

  9. Nily

    Hi Christine! Useful review thank you.
    How does MAC Watch Me Simmer compare with YSL Rouge Volupté in #13 Peach Passion?

  10. Rogue

    How is quick sizzle different from Chanel Rouge allure in insolente?

  11. wan

    Hi Christine!
    What is that greenish-bluish(?) eyeliner you’re wearing? I really love it paired with Watch Me Simmer. You look great :)

  12. tulika

    hey i was just wondering what gold eyeshadow/liner you have on in the picture where you are wearing the innocence beware lipstick? it looks beautiful!

  13. Sofia

    Hi Christine,

    Do you by any chance think that Cover Girl’s lipstick color in Divine could serve as dupe to the color Quick sizzle? I own Divine and am trying to compare the two. Maybe divine is a bit more on the purple side…What do you think?
    Thanks! :)

  14. Nadia

    Is viva glam nicki the same color as watch me simmer?

  15. cybill

    what eyeliner are you wearing with the quick sizzle lipstick?

  16. I am dying over that Watch me simmer shade!
    what shade would you recommend as a dupe since every mac counter ive gone too has it sold out!

  17. Cat

    How does Mac watch me simmer compare to Chanel rouge allure in genial and super? I have both, do I get watch me simmer if I would mix both colors?

  18. Jean

    Hey Christine! First of all thanks for the reviews & swatches. I think Innocence, beware really suits you :) speaking of nude lippie, I just think that it’s almost the same shade as the Viva Glam Gaga 2, don’t you think so? Should I skip it since I already have the same shade?

  19. char

    Yaay! I heard quick sizzle will be promoted in April! I so hope this is true, but this news came straight from a MAC employee so I think it is reliable. I missed out on it with shop cook so I am really excited :)

  20. Laura

    Ooh quick sizzle!!! Me likey!! I guess I better pop by the mall to see if they have it…

  21. Do you know if Mac will be re-releasing Naughty Suate I love it but I cannot find it anaywhere.

  22. Rachel marshall

    Hey!
    Just wondering how similar ‘Quick Sizzle’ is to ‘Hollywood Nights’ from the Heatherette collection? I found someone selling QS for a super decent price so Im real tempted to purchase it but I have HN so If I dont neeeeed it I’ll pass, haha.

  23. gabii

    Do you think quick sizzle is similiar to nicki viva glam? I bought both and I have some doubts.

  24. Stacie135

    Do you think ‘Watch Me Simmer’ is similar to Illamasqua’s ‘Scandal’? I don’t want to buy if it’s the same! :) x

  25. FeliciaP

    I have been desperately trying to get Quick Sizzle for ages, after I saw someone wearing it.  When it relaunched in April the girl at the Mac store told me it would launch on April 15th, (wrong date) so I missed it by 10 days, and by that time it was sold out absolutely EVERYWHERE. I have been impatiently waiting for it to relaunch.  And to be honest, there are a lot of similar shades, but I dont want them if they are not Quick Sizzle, in my eyes it has to be that Quick Sizzle shade, it’s the one I want, and I honestly believe it is because it is LE and unavailable to me.  
     
    Business is all about supply and demand and we always want what we can’t have, don’t we!! ;)
