Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Waterproof Mascara!

my answer: Getting it off can be a total pain! It can also look dry or brittle applied. I love that it wears longer, though, and you don’t have to worry about your eyes watering.

MAC Carmine Rouge Lipglass
MAC Carmine Rouge Lipglass

MAC Carmine Rouge Lipglass ($30.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as a “clean true red.” It’s a brightened, neutral red with a creamy, glossy finish. It seems to almost look warm on me, which is often how neutral reds look on my coloring, so it may appear more neutral or even subtly cool-toned depending on your undertones. It had mostly opaque color coverage with a fairly smooth, even application. The texture is slightly thick, tacky, but holds on well and lasts for five hours. It was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Ruby Woo (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned. NARS Burning Love (LE, $26.00) is darker. Guerlain Rouge Parade (920) (LE, $30.00) is darker. Dior Vie d’Enfer (869) (P, $35.00) is warmer. Laura Mercier Poppy (P, $25.00) is warmer, brighter. MAC Viva Glam Rihanna (LE, $15.00) is shimmery, pinker. NARS Norma (P, $26.00) is similar. MAC Send Me Sailing (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Ultramarine Pink Lipglass ($30.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone dirty violet.” It’s a bold, brightened magenta plum with cool undertones and a creamy, glossy finish. It was mostly opaque and applied verly evenly. The consistency is on the thicker side with a noticeable amount of tackiness. This shade lasted for five hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating over time. NYX Sugar Cookie (P, $5.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Crush (P, $19.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Girl About Town (LE, $15.00) is pinker, shimmery. Illamasqua Belladonna (P, $22.00) is slightly pinker. Buxom Berry Blast (P, $19.00) is lighter, sheerer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
