MAC The Matte Lip Collection

Launching online on May 28th, MAC The Matte Lip Collection ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) features 22 shades of Retro Matte and Matte finish lipsticks. Over half are shades that have been previously released or are found in the permanent range, with the new shades including Tropic Tonic (which I don’t have), D for Danger, Men Love Mystery, Matte Royal, Antique Velvet, Stone, Whirl, Persistence, and Naturally Transformed. I’m still awaiting the full press release and will post full launch information and descriptions as soon as I receive. Here’s a sneak peek of 21 of the 22 shades…

Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about YSL!

my answer: I’ve noticed them repeating in seasonal collections by taking a permanent eyeshadow palette and putting a new cover on it, and I have found it difficult to 100% tell online and only discover it when I open it in person. I like a lot of YSL’s products, but there are some misses–primarily anything that’s powder and supposed to be intensely pigmented.

ColourPop Boba Super Shock Cheek
ColourPop Boba Super Shock Cheek

ColourPop Boba Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone true pink with golden highlights.” It’s a light-medium, cool-toned pink with lighter gold shimmer. Applied, the finish looks more like a luminous sheen than a frosted or overtly shimmery highlighter. This shade is more like a highlighting blush, as it gives color as well as highlights the skin. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and very blendable. On me, it wore well for eight hours before fading. MAC Please Yourself (LE, $27.00) is darker. MAC I’m a Lover (P, $23.50) is less shimmery. MAC Just a Wisp (P, $27.00) is lighter. Makeup Geek Head Over Heels (P, $9.99) is less shimmery. NARS Adelaide (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery. MAC Well Dressed (P, $21.00) is lighter. MAC Pearl Blossom (LE, $26.00) is lighter. Illamasqua Morale (P, $26.00) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Lunch Money Super Shock Cheek ($8.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “soft light gold with a reflective golden duochrome finish.” It’s a light, golden beige with a frosted sheen and warm undertones. It had good color payoff that yielded full coverage applied with fingertips, but the lightly creamy, emollient consistency blended out well so it could be sheered out with fingertips or applied sheer from the get-go with a brush. The finish may seem frosted in a swatch, but on the skin, it’s a luminous glow that doesn’t emphasize pores, but it does have very slight sparkle that is sometimes visible (depends on the angle), though it doesn’t seem to migrate. It lasted for eight hours on me. Estee Lauder Courreges (LE, $32.00) is a powder. MAC Perfect Topping (Lightness of Being) (LE, $30.00) is more beige. MAC Born to Dazzle (LE, $28.00) is more sparkly. Tarte Champagne (LE) is similar, powder. Urban Decay Craze (LE) is lighter, powder. Becca Moonstone (P, $38.00) is powder. theBalm Solid Gold (P, $24.00) is darker. Illamasqua Aurora (P, $24.00) is a touch lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Estee Lauder Ambitious Pink Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick
Estee Lauder Ambitious Pink Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick

Estee Lauder Ambitious Pink Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brightened, subtly warm-toned, light-medium pink with a soft shine. It had rich, opaque color coverage that applied smoothly and evenly, while the texture and formula made the lips look smoother and plumper. The color wore well for five hours and was hydrating over time. Surratt Beauty A La Mode (P, $34.00) is more matte, darker. Chanel Elise (448) (P, $36.00) is sheerer. Colour Pop Fetch (P, $5.00) is more matte, lighter. NARS Marisa (P, $32.00) is cooler-toned, lighter. MAC Pheromonal (LE, $17.00) is darker. Givenchy Hibiscus Exclusif (302) (P, $36.00) is similar. Bite Beauty Damask (LE, $28.00) is similar. Guerlain Geraldine (77) (P, $51.00) is similar. Bite Beauty Sweety (LE, $24.00) is lighter. Chanel Fougueuse (138) (P, $34.00) is darker. Buxom Mistress (LE, $21.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Turn On (P, $22.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Estee Lauder Thrilling Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a reddish-berry with subtle, cool undertones and a soft sheen. It had mostly opaque color coverage, but there was a slight translucency to the shade that allowed the natural lip color to come through. It wore well for five hours and was hydrating over time. MAC The Scene (P, $23.00) is darker. Bite Beauty Brandy (P, $24.00) is lighter, more matte. Bite Beauty Winterberry (LE, $24.00) is lighter. MAC Gospel (LE, $16.00) is more muted, lighter. NARS Vera (P, $32.00) is cooler-toned. Bite Beauty Crimson (LE, $28.00) is lighter, cooler-toned. YSL Exquisite Plum (22) (P, $34.00) is cooler-toned. Guerlain Madame Batifole (860) (LE, $51.00) is more shimmery. MAC Heaux (LE, $16.00) is more matte. NARS Palais Royal (P, $25.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
