MAC x Proenza Schouler Lipsticks

MAC x Proenza Schouler Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.10 oz.) come in four, limited edition shades. The collection launches online on April 21st and in-stores on April 24th. Each lipstick is housed in metallic, square tubes.

Mangrove is described as a “bright clean orange-red [with a Matte finish].” It’s a brightened, medium coral-red with warm, orange undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had rich, opaque color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly without dragging or tugging at the lip during application. This shade wore well for six hours and left a stain behind, though it was just slightly drying. MAC Dangerous (P, $16.00) is darker. MAC Rozz (LE, $16.00) is redder. MAC Scarlet Ibis (LE, $16.00) is darker. MAC Lady Danger (P, $16.00) is darker, more orange. Hourglass Muse (P, $28.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Pinkfringe is described as a “vivid flamingo pink [with a Satin finish].” It’s a brightened, light-medium pink with subtle neutral-to-warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff, and the texture was very creamy and emollient, so it did create “lines” if you pressed your lips together. The color wore well for four hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. YSL Fetish Pink (8) (P, $34.00) is less shimmery, a little lighter. MAC What a Feeling! (LE, $20.00) is sheerer. Too Faced Razzle Dazzle Rose (P, $21.00) is sheerer. Maybelline Pink Pop (P, $7.49) is cooler-toned, less shimmery. MAC Divine Choice (P, $22.00) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Primrose is described as a “sheer berry plum [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a medium-dark, cool-toned berry plum with a glossy shine. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied somewhat unevenly with a little settling of the color into lip lines. As the color wore away, it did seem to migrate and settle more into the lip lines. It managed to wear four hours and left a stain behind, which is quite long for a Lustre finish, and it wasn’t drying. Inglot #293 Lipstick Cream (P, $12.00) is more opaque. YSL Forbidden Burgundy (12) (P, $34.00) is brighter.Marc Jacobs Beauty Seduce Me (128) (P, $30.00) is lighter, brighter. Urban Decay Venom (P, $22.00) is more shimmery. MAC Rebel (P, $16.00) is slightly cooler-toned, less glossy. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Woodrose is described as a “light pink with beige [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a light beige with a rosy tint and a soft shine. It had mostly opaque pigmentation, though Lustres are a sheerer range, so it is unusually opaque. The consistency was creamy with enough slip to apply without tugging, and it applied evenly the most part. It wore well for three and a half hours and was a little drying. MAC Pure Pout (P, $22.00) is warmer. Maybelline Blushing Beige (915) (P, $7.49) is not quite as pink. MAC Innocence Beware (LE, $16.00) is slightly cooler-toned. MAC Crème d’Nude (P, $16.00) is slightly warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
