MAC Spoiled Fabulous Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light, champagne gold with warm undertones and fine gold and larger gold sparkle. It had a noticeably gritty texture when applied directly to the lips, and the sparkle really clings to each other, which causes unevenness and lumpy bits of sparkle on the lips. The “color” seemed to slip into lip lines as well. This is a shade that I found difficult to apply on its own and get any measure of standalone wear out of it, as it always made my lips look rough and very textured. It would work better as a layering shade. It lasted for two and a half hours on me. MAC Tanarama (P, $17.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC No Interruptions (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). MAC Liquid Lurex (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Rory (LE, $35.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC All I Want (LE, $17.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Whip (P, $17.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

MAC Wild Extract Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, light-medium chartreuse with warm, yellow undertones and a fine, metallic shimmer. There aren’t that many shades like it, so I really wish this performed better, since it is permanent! The texture was thin, emollient but a little slippery, and it did gather a bit in lip lines. It could have applied more evenly as well and only had medium coverage. The color lasted for three and a half hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Fragmented (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). MAC Gold Xixi (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, lighter, warmer (85% similar).

MAC Time to Shine Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a silvery white with a pearly shimmer finish. This was one of the least shimmery shades in the new Frosts being added to the permanent line. It had semi-opaque coverage, but the color did seem to emphasize every lip line by settling into it. I think a lip primer or lip liner might help this one, but I would consider using an invisible lip liner with this one. This shade lasted for three hours and was slightly drying. Tom Ford Beauty Casey (LE, $35.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Iced (P, $18.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). NYX Stone Cold (P, $6.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
MAC Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is available in several finishes, and the performance tends to vary with the finish. Amplified, Satins, and Mattes tend to have the most pigmentation, longer wear, and more even coverage, but satins and mattes can be drying at times. Lustres are the sheerest, can sometimes be drying, and often wear only an hour or two as they have a lot of slip. Frosts vary from medium to opaque coverage, some shimmer to glitter, and wear an average of four hours. Cremesheens have more slip and medium or better coverage, but they can often settle into lip lines or look streaky if they are lighter in color. All of MAC’s lipsticks are vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.
