MAC By Request Eyeshadows (2013 Edition)

MAC Ashbury Eyeshadow is described as a “matte taupe grey [with a Matte finish].” It’s a cool-toned, gray-brown with a hint of green (at least on my warmer complexion; I think it will be less apparent on cooler skin tones) and a matte finish. It had good color payoff and had a soft, smooth feel. Urban Decay Pistol is shimmery. NARS Bali is darker. MAC Legendary Black is darker, shimmery. MAC Concrete is darker. Inglot #348 is much darker. See comparison swatches.

MAC By Request Lipsticks (2013 Edition)

MAC Flavour Lipstick is described as a “soft, muted peachy-pink [with a Satin finish].” It’s a warm-toned, light-medium pink-coral with a subtle sheen but fairly creamy finish. It had a soft, smooth consistency that applied well without tugging or dragging on the lips, and it delivered opaque color coverage. It lasted four and a half hours when I wore it, and it was neither drying nor hydrating. Urban Decay Native is very similar. Revlon Pink Lemonade is sheerer.NARS Bolero is more matte. MAC Haute Altitude is darker. MAC Ever Hip is warmer. MAC Coral Bliss is warmer. See comparison swatches.
