MAC Nocturnal Instincts and Seductive Intent Mattene Lipsticks

MAC Nocturnal Instincts Mattene Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as a “mid-toned greyed lavender.” It’s a pink-lavender with a semi-matte finish. There’s a definite gray tint to it, as it reads cool and a little neutral. It was opaque on the lips. MAC Budding Love is a little pinker. MAC Blooming Lovely is less pink and lighter. MAC I Like It Like That is pinker, more blue-based. MAC Dress It Up is pinker.

MAC Perky Lipglass (Taste Temtpation)

MAC Perky Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone shimmering lilac.” It’s a light-medium lilac purple with lighter lilac and multi-colored shimmer. On my lips, it adds a light lavender color but it’s the multitude of shimmer that really stands out. MAC Docile is lighter, less shimmery. MAC Gone Romancin’ is lighter and more tinted. MAC Frozen Dream has less shimmer.

MAC Unconventional Blush

MAC Unconventional Blush ($20.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “pale shimmering lavender” with a frost finish. It’s a pale pink with a hint of lavender and cool under-tones; there is an almost gray pull to the color that gives it a very cool, muted appearance. For a blush listed as a frost, it is softer, more shimmer-sheen than full of shimmer; more like a mix of frost and satin. MAC Lazy Sunday is warmer, pinker. MAC Full of Joy is a touch more lavender and less frosted–but the two are very similar. Make Up For Ever Smooth Talker is a touch pinker and less shimmery.
