MAC Cosmetics Lipstick Swatches on Skin

Here are all of the lipsticks, but they are swatched on the back of my hands this time. Please note that since these are lipsticks, they are only one indicator of color, finish, opacity, etc., since they are applied to skin and not lips. Unfortunately, I do not own all of MAC’s lipsticks, so I cannot provide lip swatches at this time. Sorry :(

MAC Cosmetics Lipstick Swatches, Part 1

I swatched all of the permanent lipsticks my local MAC had on their displayer, so I apologize in advance if any permanent colors are absent! All of these swatches are on swatch paper, but I will also provide skin swatches in another post to follow this one.

MAC Cosmetics Eyeshadow Swatches, Part 1

I said I would try to find a pocket of time to head down to the MAC store and swatch eyeshadows for you, and I did! :) All swatches are on swatch paper, so you can get an idea of the “true” color and not wonder if it’ll show up on your lighter/darker skin. I swatched all of the permanent eyeshadows my local MAC had on their displayer, so I apologize in advance if any permanent colors are absent.

6 Must-Have MAC Plushglasses

About the Temptalia Must-Haves Series
A series of posts showcasing must-have products from MAC Cosmetics’ permanent line of products. Selections are based on quality, universality, uniqueness amongst the line, and the like. Limited edition shades are deliberately excluded to make buying easier. Readers’ comments act as a supplement to these lists of their favorites and must-haves. You can find the entire series here.

Oversexed plushglass is a sheer, glossy raspberryish shade. It’s not too bright, but it isn’t a dark shade either. It’s one of the more pigmented plushglasses available, as it is deep enough in color to transfer onto lips.

Big Baby plushglass is a sheer peachy-pink shade, kind of a light pink-coral, with just a little bit of pearl shimmer. I like this one for layering over lipsticks!

Big Kiss plushglass is a light pink shade with coral undertones and subtle gold shimmer. This is always a nice color to add on top of pink and coral lipsticks for a lot of glossiness.

Luminary lustreglass is a sheer, opalescent gloss with flecks of purple and pink shimmer. It’s one of my favorite glosses to wear alone or to change up a lipstick that’s starting to get boring.

Spring Bean lustreglass is a sheer, gold-green gloss that can really alter the way your lipstick looks when you layer it on top.

Venetian lustreglass is a semi-sheer pop of dark pink with a little reddish cast to it. It’s actually an awesome way to start wearing bolder lip colors without committing full-on.
