MAC Vibe Tribe Lipsticks

MAC Tanarama Lipstick

MAC Tanarama Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium, pale gold with warm undertones and a frosted shimmer-sheen finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly, but I noticed it tended to emphasize lip lines and separate slightly near them. I could feel the texture of the shimmer particles when applying, but it wasn’t chunky or rough to apply or to wear. This shade was lightly drying but lasted for three hours. MAC You've Got It (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Rory (LE, $35.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC All I Want (LE, $17.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). NARS Redemption (LE, $29.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Pure Vanity Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium peach with warm, orange undertones and a soft, pearly sheen.

MAC Arrowhead Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light, pinky-beige with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage, but the texture was thicker and a little drier. It seemed to “crack” when I smiled, even though it wasn’t a flat, matte liquid lipstick or nearly that clingy/dry applied. The color lasted for three hours and was lightly drying.

MAC Hot Chocolate Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good color payoff with a smooth, even application due to a lightly creamy texture. This shade wore well for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. This is a repromote from a past limited edition launch. Colour Pop Stingraye (P, $6.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Bite Beauty Shiraz (P, $24.00) is lighter, less glossy (85% similar).
