MAC Style Approved Mineralize Rich Lipstick
MAC Style Approved Mineralize Rich Lipstick

MAC Style Approved Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “bright orange coral.” It’s a muted, medium orange with a very, very slight coral tinge and a soft shine and subtle gold shimmer. It had mostly opaque color coverage that was buildable from semi-sheer and applied fairly evenly. It wore well for three and a half hours on me and was lightly hydrating. Givenchy Corail Signature (317) (P, $36.00) is brighter. Sephora Collection Samba (LE, $12.50) is brighter, lighter. Paul and Joe Beaute Once Upon a Time (081) (LE, $17.00) is yellower. MAC Sweet Grenadine (LE, $17.00) is darker. MAC Tart & Trendy (LE, $16.00) is brighter, darker. MAC Saigon Summer (LE, $16.00) is darker, sheerer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Tropical Buzz Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “dirty muted orange.” It’s a brightened, pumpkin orange with warm, yellow undertones and a glossy shine. It had buildable, mostly opaque color coverage, but the texture was slightly thicker and more emollient, so it didn’t apply evenly. This shade wore for three hours on me and was somewhat hydrating. Paul and Joe Beaute Once Upon a Time (081) (LE, $17.00) is darker. MAC Tangerine Dream (P, $16.00) is very similar. MAC Sheer Mandarin (LE, $17.00) is lighter. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Banjee (P, $18.00) is slightly brighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Wear with Flare Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “midtone neutral.” It’s a muted, rosy beige with warm undertones and a soft shine. It had buildable, mostly opaque color coverage, but it didn’t apply totally even as it tended to streak and bunch up due to the more slippery consistency. This shade lasted two and a half hours on me, which is on the short side for me, but it was lightly hydrating. Guerlain Galiane (15) (P, $51.00) is lighter, less warm-toned. Maybelline Truffle Tease (930) (P, $7.49) is browner. NARS Pago Pago (P, $26.00) is sheerer. Bobbi Brown Uber Beige (P, $24.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

  1. I think I’ve fallen in love with Style Approved!

  2. Wear with Flare is gorgeous on you Christine! It would be too pale for me though..

    I like all three colors, especially the first and last. the shimmer isn’t necessary, tho. The third one has the perfect nude pink shade :)

  4. Darn it! I was really hoping that Wear with Flare could have performed better. The color sounds right up my alley, and especially with it being compared to Guerlain Galiane (which looks so pretty but I just can’t justify the cost right now). It’s too bad! (BTW, Christine, Dream Daze should be arriving in the mail for me either on Friday or Monday, I can’t wait!)

    wow, style approved is much more opaque than I expected it to be!!! Unfortunately, the hint of coral would be totally lost on my skin tone but it looks beautiful on you Christine!

  7. Is it jut me or I have started feeling that MAC is losing its creativity on lipstick colors… I am really a MAC lipstick lover but looking at these and few more recent launches, I am getting a feeling that its sort-of repeating very similar looking colors…what do you say Christine…wud love to know ur thoughts on this!!

  8. Style Approved, the one that I like the most out of these three, reminds me a lot of Sushi Kiss, which I already have, so yay me :-)

  9. These wouldn’t be the best shades for me, but they look great on you. I particularly like Style Approved.

  10. Hm… :-D All of these would be a disaster on me, but I love the last one on you (shame it bunches/smears) and how unconventional the strong yellow tones in the second one are!

  11. I had a feeling I would like them all lol. The orange ones are gorgeous though! I need Tropical Buzz in my life asap. It looks like a more intense Tangerine Dream. Love it!

  12. I think I like the dupes of Wear With Flare better. Especially Pago Pago.

    Loving Wear with Flare! Which would you recommend more, Tangerine Dream or Tropical Buzz? I was thinking of purchasing Tangerine Dream last time I was at a counter but I completely forgot to get it.

  14. I’m really happy to see that Mac is coming out with more orange-ey shades. You can only make so many pink or red shades of lipstick before it starts to get redundant after a while. I have Siagon Summer and it really flatters my NC20 skin. Now I hope that lavender lipsticks can get just as popular!

    Style Approved is wery wearable, isn’t it. I like it. However I don’t think I’m really a fan of the Mineralize Rich formula.
    Tropical Buzz is a fun colour, I could never use it, not such a yellow colour.
    Wear with Flare is a real MLBB, pity it didn’t perform better.
