MAC Style Surge Mineralize Rich Lipstick
MAC Style Surge Mineralize Rich Lipstick

MAC Style Surge Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “neutral coral cream.” It’s an orange-coral with a hint of pink and a creamy, slightly glossy sheen. MAC Lady at Play is quite a bit darker and more red/pink in comparison. Laura Mercier Tangerine is darker and pinker. MAC Vegas Volt is darker and slightly more orange. MAC Crosswires is darker and pinker.

This shade was fully opaque, and it has a creamier consistency than the other shades–there was a wetness to it that gave it that glossy finish. It applied evenly and easily, and though it was creamier, it didn’t feel any thicker/thinner than the majority of the range. It was the most hydrating shade of the twelve colors released. Style Surge lasted four hours on me when I wore it, and it was incredibly comfortable to wear.

Style Surge was the most hydrating shade out of the twelve I tested. It had opaque color payoff, wore for four hours, and applied beautifully.

  4. Jennifer Rivera

    This color looks so beautiful on you!

  11. Barbara

    Wow, yeah, I really need this one. The color is gorgeous for spring/summer and I don’t have a pink like this one.

  12. Callie

    Beautiful! I wish it was reasonable for me to buy a lipstick for 22 bucks though. :(

  13. Wenz

    LLLLLLLOOOOVVVVVVEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!

  14. Lovely! does this bare any resamblance to MAC’s Reel Sexy?

  15. Ashley O

    It looks quite similar to Reel Sexy. How close are they?

  16. Tawnie

    How does this compare to Betty Bright?

  17. What about Style surge compared with Reel sexy?

  18. Hanie

    How is this color compared to ravishing?? They look identical to me!

  19. Veronica

    I love these orange-y corals, but it’s one of the colors that my cool undertone refuses to work with no matter what I choose. Still, I’m pleased with this line. This is major step up from their last major permanent collection.

  20. LOVE this shade on you! Don’t know if it would look as good on me but I REALLY want it now! :P

  21. camila

    Is it similar to mac limited edition ever hip?

  22. blueraccoon

    I really like this but I’m afraid it’s a bit too orange/warm for me. There are other colors I like better.

  23. Christina

    beeeeeeeautiful!!!

  24. Samantha

    Hey Christine, how does this compare to MAC Ravishing? :)

  25. Bana

    Yay, the swatch looks like an opaque NARS Barberella.
    PERFECT!!!

  26. helen

    This is one of those colours that just brightens the face. I haven’t purchased a MAC lipstick since Vegas Volt (that looked like orange chalk on me). This one is very tempting.

    • Caroline

      I think this is what I want vegas volt to be. I have that too, the employee was wearing it and has similar to my coloring and it looked fabulous on her, but it just can’t work on me.

  27. Kendrick

    This kind of looks like Betty Bright to me.

  28. I’m so excited for the spring ’13 collection to arrive here on Thursday!

  29. Is this a good dupe for betty bright ?

  30. Info

    Hi Christine
    Just love your reviews
    What lipstick formula would you say these are closest to
    in terms of color payoff, amplified, creemsheens or the sheers

    Thanks

  31. ELENITA

    How similar is the color of this lipstick to MAC “Gotta Dash!” Sheen Supreme Lipstick?

  32. ladybj

    Wow, How is this compare to MAC Razzledazzler ? Thanks :D

  33. could you help me? I can hardly find other swatches of style surge, than yours on the net, but since I have very fair lips, almost felsh tinted, and fair ivory skin, I can’t rely on yours, though they are very hlepful, but don’t show the actual color I will get on my lips…

    Looking for the perfect coral, I have to make a choice between Style Surge and Vegas Volt (I can’t afford both).
    Wich one would be the best, on your opinion, on pale lips and fair skin (I don’t have a match on MAC foundations, but I wear Make Up For Ever #130 in summer, and a miw of #130 and #115 in winter (#115 alone is too pale for me, matches my neck perfectly but my face looks flat and creepy… zombie style, lol).

    What are your thoughts about both these shades (formulas, lasting time, coverage, …)?

  34. Alina

    Besides the frost, how does this compare to Costa Chic?
