MAC It’s Never Ending & Last Minute Versicolour Stains

MAC It's Never Ending Versicolour Lip Stain

MAC It’s Never Ending Versicolour Lip Stain ($24.00 for 0.28 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep raspberry.” It appears as a medium-dark rosy pink initially, but it develops into a dark, raspberry pink with subtle, warm undertones. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly without emphasizing lip lines. This shade wore well for eight hours and was lightly drying over time. Giorgio Armani #601 Plum Vinyl (P, $38.00) is darker (95% similar). Maybelline Caviar Couture (050) (P, $8.99) is cooler, glossier (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Exposed (P, $52.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Chanel Distinction (21) (P, $34.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Peer Pressure (LE, $20.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Vice (P, $26.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Last Minute Versicolour Lip Stain ($24.00 for 0.28 fl. oz.) is described as an “intense pinky cranberry.” It’s a bright, medium pinky-red with cool undertones. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a creamy, high-shine finish that applied with even, smooth coverage. This shade wore well for seven hours on me and was just a bit drying at the end. Urban Decay 69 (P, $26.00) is darker (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Stolen Cherry (P, $52.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Guerlain Rouge Parade (920) (LE, $30.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). MAC Tease Don't Touch (LE, $20.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). MAC Carmine Rouge (LE, $30.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty No Vacancy (P, $52.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Urban Decay Assassin (P, $26.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). MAC Ruby Woo (LE, $15.00) is brighter (90% similar). Anastasia Socialite (P) is darker, more muted, warmer (90% similar). MAC Victoriana (LE, $15.00) is brighter (90% similar). NYX Apple Crisp (P, $6.00) is brighter (85% similar). MAC Tenor Voice (LE, $15.00) is brighter (85% similar). MAC Hot/Cold (LE, $15.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | MAC Versicolour Lip Stain ($24.00 for 0.28 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a hybrid gloss and stain formula with a glossy shine, long-wear (eight-hours, specifically), “jelly-like texture,” and “stay-true colour.” Interesting discovery: under “usage” (on MAC’s website) the following is there: “As with many lips stains, lips might feel slightly dry over time … Product not recommended for use on overly dry or sensitive lips.” There is some good, specific information about these, though for color payoff isn’t as clear, so based on the fact that these are a gloss/lip stain hybrid (neither of which are typically opaque), I would expect noticeable color with translucency–like stained glass. The majority are fairly pigmented and are true-to-form as a lip stain, and they have a moderate shine. The consistency is thin, watery initially and develops into a slightly thicker, lightly tacky texture as it “sets.” It is one of the least-tacky textures of this type of formula (as it is similar to ones like YSL Glossy Stains, Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lacquer, Tom Ford Patent Finish, L’Oreal Color Caresse). Some shades emphasized and gathered into lip lines, which may be due to the slightly thinner overall consistency (compared to other like formulas). The wear ranged from six to eight hours and was lightly to moderately drying over time. The formula has a subtle vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

LORAC Twilight Illuminating Highlighter

LORAC Twilight Light Source Illuminating Highlighter

LORAC Twilight Light Source Illuminating Highlighter ($22.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy-gold with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. Dior Glowing Nude (002) (LE, $58.00) is darker (95% similar). theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is warmer (95% similar). Laura Mercier Addiction (P, $44.00) is darker (90% similar). Illamasqua Rush (P) is warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Bubbly (LE) is darker (90% similar). Laura Geller Gilded Honey (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Anastasia So Hollywood (P, $28.00) is darker (90% similar). Becca Opal (P, $38.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Anastasia Dripping in Gold (LE) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

New for summer, LORAC has released their Light Source Illuminating Highlighter in four shades (reviews to come for all shades). The formula is supposed to be buildable for both a “soft, natural sheen” or “layered for a high-shine, dramatic effect.” Twilight had semi-opaque to fully opaque coverage–it was the most pigmented of the four–with a fair amount of shimmer. This shade was the most shimmery/metallic of the four as well. The texture was very soft and a little loose in the pan, so it tended to sheer out a bit more readily on the skin (which I think works for a highlighter formulation) but is easily diffused beyond where one might have intended so use smaller, more precise movements/strokes when applying and blending. It emphasized pores just slightly, but it tended to be so metallic and glow-y that it was hard to notice. On me, the color wore well for eight hours before breaking down.
