MAC Glace Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm

MAC Glace Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm ($19.50 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “creamy pale baby blue.” In the tube, it’s a cloudy, pale blue with iridescent pink-copper shimmer. It’s actually very, very similar to MAC Chillin’, except Chillin‘ is a bit milkier. MAC Ethereal is more shimmery.

It is similar to shades like NARS Buenos Aires, MAC Kiss Me Softly, and MAC Poetic License.

NARS Tender Night Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

NARS Tender Night Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($25.00 for 0.086 oz.) is described as an “iridescent lilac.” It’s true-to-description: it’s an iridescent lilac with a shimmering frost finish. MAC Bubble Gum has more of an iridescent lilac feel (but it has more of a golden shimmer than true iridescence). If you have an iridescent lilac eyeshadow, you could pat it over your lips and get a similar effect.

MAC Sounds Like Noise Lipstick

MAC Sounds Like Noise Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “bright true orange matte.” It’s a brightened warm-toned orange with a smidgen of red in the undertone and a satiny finish (it doesn’t read entirely matte). That lack of red is actually what makes it stand out against a lot of other orange shades (like MAC Morange and MAC Neon Orange, which both appear darker and redder). OCC Banjee is lighter, yellower. I was surprised to find that none of the orange lipsticks in the gallery came close.
