MAC Stroke of Midnight/Coral Lip & Cheek Bag

MAC Stroke of Midnight/Coral Lip & Cheek Bag ($59.50) includes a travel-sized blush (0.09 oz. vs. 0.21 oz.), full-sized lipglass (0.17 fl. oz.), full-sized lipstick (0.10 oz.), travel-sized #129 brush, and a slim mirror. It is an exclusive set to MAC stores and maccosmetics.com. The #129SE brush felt really floppy; the brush head seemed a lot longer than the full-sized #129, and it was also somewhat scratchy. The mirror works as it should, but it’s all mirror, so it’s easy to smudge and get fingerprints on it when removing it from its pouch. The bag is a good size and will fit several products easily. I liked the lipstick and gloss, and Margin is an old favorite, though it does emphasize pores slightly. The set contains $9 worth of blush, $15 worth of gloss, and $15 worth of lipstick for a total of $39 in color products; then there is some value for the #129SE, mirror, and bag–all of which are hard to value.

Margin is described as a “peach with gold shimmer.” It’s a peachy-brown with a golden shimmer. It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft and just slightly powdery. There is a slight emphasis of pores with the frosted, metallic finish. It wore well for seven and a half hours. I found this color hard to dupe, actually. MAC Stereo Rose (LE, $23.50) is pinker. See comparison swatches.

Pure Sophistication is described as a “gold frost.” It’s a golden-orange-tinted gloss with a ton of gold, copper, and dark gold shimmer. On lips, it warms up the natural lip color but mostly adds a lot of shimmer. It wore well for three hours. MAC Pure Flattery (LE, $15.00) is less gold. MAC Natural Flare (LE, $20.00) is more orange. Bobbi Brown Canary (P, $24.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Night to Remember is described as a “warm red frost [with a Cremesheen finish].” It’s a brightened, medium red with warm, yellow-orange undertones and a soft sheen. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and it wore well for five and a half hours, plus it left behind a soft stain. It was neither hydrating nor drying. Givenchy Grenat Initie (307) (P, $36.00) is similar. Maybelline Infra-red (LE, $7.49) is warmer. Milani Cherry Crave (P, $5.49) is more matte. MAC Must Be Red (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC Cockney (P, $15.00) is a touch warmer. Guerlain Genna (LE, $49.50) is similar. Guerlain Habit Rouge (P, $35.00) is more matte. See comparison swatches.
