MAC Flavour Lipstick
MAC By Request (2013 Edition) Lipsticks

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.

MAC Glam Lipstick is described as a “vivid, bright pinky-red [with a Matte finish].” It’s a rich, vibrant cool-toned red with a strong blue undertone that it turns pink when sheered out. It delivered full color coverage, and the texture was slightly creamy but more comparable to recent Retro Matte finishes like RiRi Woo, Heaux, etc. It wore for eight hours and left a stain that continued on for a couple more hours. It was neither hydrating nor drying. There is no shortage of dupes for this shade, though, as it is a very classic red. MAC RiRi Woo is similar, not quite as pink-toned. NYX Chic Red is darker. NARS Dragon Girl is similar. NARS Luxembourg is brighter. MAC Russian Red is darker, not as cool-toned. MAC Ruby Woo is not as pink-toned. MAC Ronnie Red is similar. MAC Love Goddess is pinker. Guerlain Calligraphy #5 is similar. Dior Marilyn is also similar. Buxom Scoundrel is not as cool-toned. See comparison swatches.

MAC Hoop Lipstick is described as a “mid-tone rosy pink [with a Matte finish].” It’s a brightened, light-medium pink with subtle warm undertones and a subtle sheen. It had full color coverage, and the consistency was lightly creamy and like more recent MAC Matte lipsticks. It lasted four hours on me. Urban Decay Rush is more subdued. MAC Force of Love is brighter, darker. MAC Betty Bright is warmer, less pink. Chanel Hyde Park is pinker. See comparison swatches.

MAC Pink Poodle Lipstick is described as a “vivid, fuchsia-pink [with a Glaze finish].” It’s a cool-toned, fuchsia pink with iridiescent bluish-fuchsia shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage; there’s a slight translucency that allows the natural lip color to come through, so if you have naturally redder lips, this will appear redder overall. It wore five hours on me and was slightly drying. Revlon Fuchsia Shock is lighter, not as blue-based. MAC Midnight Mambo is purpler. MAC Rare Exotic is darker. MAC Quick Sizzle is cooler-toned, matte. MAC Lickable is slightly warmer. MAC Girl About Town is darker. Estee Lauder Demure is less cool-toned. Chanel Extatique is lighter. Buxom Exhibitionist is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

MAC Rozz Lipstick is described as a “watermelon reddish pink [with a Matte finish].” It’s a bold, coral-orange with strong red undertones and a matte finish. It had really rich, opaque color payoff, and the consistency was lightly creamy so it didn’t tug on lips but didn’t slide around. It wore for six and a half hours and left a light stain behind. It was neither drying nor hydrating. NARS Mysterious Red is darker. Chanel Amant is more orange, more muted. MAC Scarlet Ibis is more orange. MAC Lady Danger is more orange, lighter. Hourglass Raven is slightly more orange. See comparison swatches. (Also: In the Originals collection, you may remember Rozz Revival, which was inspired by this shade.)

MAC Tomango Lipstick is described as a “bright reddish orange [with a Matte finish].” It’s a vibrant, brightened medium orange with strong red undertones and a matte finish. It had a lightly creamy consistency that applied evenly and well, and the color was rich and fully opaque on lips. It wore for six hours well and was neither hydrating nor drying. Urban Decay Bang is slightly brighter. Maybelline Orange Edge is similar in color, shinier. Maybelline Vibrant Mandarin is slightly redder. Maybelline Neon Red is shinier. MAC Scarlet Ibis is redder. MAC Sail La Vie is similar. MAC Morange is lighter. MAC Lady Danger is very similar–perhaps a fraction darker. Buxom Rogue is shinier.
See comparison swatches.

Urban Decay Turn On 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil
Urban Decay Turn On 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil

This post is part of a series of reviews featuring Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencils ($19.00 for 0.04 oz. each). Please see part one for more in-depth coverage on the formula overall. This post features pinks and plums from the shade range.  These will launch initially on urbandecay.com and then roll out to Sephora, Macy’s, Beauty.com, and ULTA shortly after.

Turn On 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “rose-pink with soft pearl.” It’s a muted, slightly cool-toned, medium-dark pink with a mostly matte finish and a hint of shimmer. It had opaque color coverage and wore for six hours. MAC Just Wonderful is more subdued, slightly plum. MAC Pink Treat is darker. See comparison swatches.

Manic 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “rosy wine.” It’s a warm-toned, medium-dark pink with a matte finish. It applied with opaque color payoff, though this one was slightly drier compared to other shades.  It lasted six and a half hours. MAC In Anticipation is lighter, more neutral. MAC Just Wonderful is more plum. MAC Pink Treat is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

Rush 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “pink-mauve with soft pearl.” It’s a muted, medium-dark pink with silver shimmer and sparkle. This shade was a bit drier in consistency, so it looked drier applied, and I found that my lips were just slightly dry after wearing this compared to other shades..  It wore for six hours.  MAC In Anticipation is darker, less shimmery. MAC Pink Treat is darker. See comparison swatches.

Obsessed 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “baby pink.” It’s a light-medium, cotton candy pink with strong, blue undertones and a matte finish. It was fully opaque on lips and wore well for six and a half hours. MAC Silly is not quite as blue-based. See comparison swatches.

Native 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “pale pink.” It’s a light-medium, almost neutral-toned pink (it almost looks gray-ish) with a matte finish. It had full color payoff when applied to the lips and lasted for six hours when I wore it. MAC Hip ‘n’ Happy is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches.

Streak 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “coral pink with soft pearl.” It’s a warm, true coral with a white shimmer over a matte finish. It had rich color payoff, though the texture was slightly drier compared to the other shades from the shimmer content. It lasted six and a half hours when I tested Streak.  I couldn’t think of any dupes for this shade.

Urban Decay Liar Lipstick
Urban Decay Liar Lipstick

In this next look at Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.), we’re featuring several of the beige and brown shades available in the range. Please see part one for a more in-depth review of the formula overall.

Liar Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “pinky-brown nude.” It is a warm, rosy, medium brown with a creamy and luminous finish. It had full color coverage when applied, and the color glided on evenly and smoothly. It lasted four hours when I wore it. NYX Haute Melon is warmer, sheerer. Guerlain Quand Vient l’Ete is darker. Burberry Devon Sunset is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Lovelight Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “pale peachy-pink shimmer.” It’s a subdued, warm-toned pink-coral with soft gold shimmer. Though there are two shades described as sheer by Urban Decay, this shade wasn’t one of them–and it is obviously semi-sheer. This shade lasted three and a half hours on me. Revlon Lover’s Coral is less shimmery, pinker. Tom Ford Frolic is warmer. NYX Haute Melon is brighter. See comparison swatches.

Naked 2 Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “medium beige-nude.” It’s a warm-toned, peach-beige with a luminous sheen. This shade was extra creamy and had more slip than other shades, so it tended to move around a bit and if you pressed your lips together, it would leave lines. This shade wore well for three and a half hours on me. Edward Bess Forbidden Flower is darker, warmer. MAC Sweet & Sour is slightly brighter. NARS Biscyane Park is very comparable. MAC Delectable is more matte, slightly darker. MAC Cozy Up is slightly darker. See comparison swatches.

Protest Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “sheer peachy nude.” It’s a medium-dark, subdued coral with a soft sheen. It wasn’t sheer, peachy, or nude (beige); it was fully pigmented at the very least. It lasted four and a half hours on me. MAC Style Surge is lighter. MAC Lady at Play is darker, brighter. See comparison swatches.

Strip Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “sheer medium mauve-nude.” It’s a subdued, plummy brown with a luminous sheen. It had full color coverage (not in the least bit sheer!) and applied evenly. This shade wore well for four and a half hours when I tried it. Bobbi Brown Soft Nude is more beige. MAC Spice is comparable. Guerlain Avarice is brighter. Giorgio Armani #526 is more shimmery. Burberry Antique Pink is more matte. See comparison swatches.

Fiend Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “muted rose.” It’s a subdued, medium rosy pink with a luminous sheen. It had rich, full color coverage and applied smoothly and evenly.

Bobbi Brown Pink Peony is slightly darker. See comparison swatches.

Native Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “pale pink.” It’s a warm-toned, light-medium pink with a glossy sheen.

It wore for three and a half hours on me. NARS Bolero is warmer, lighter, matte. MAC You’re Perfect Already is cooler-toned, lighter. MAC Dreaminess is lighter. MAC Vivid Imagination is pinker. MAC Please Me is cooler-toned, darker. MAC Haute Altitude is darker. Burberry Tulip Pink is more muted. Bobbi Brown Miami Coral is slightly warmer.

Urban Decay Jilted Lipstick
Urban Decay Jilted Lipstick

In this next look at Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.), we’re featuring several of the cooler-toned pinks available in the range. Please see part one for a more in-depth review of the formula overall.

Jilted Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “deep fuchsia shimmer with blue shift.” It’s a vibrant, brightened fuchsia-red with iridescent shimmer and a soft sheen. The consistency is thinner than other shades in the range, and it had mostly opaque color coverage, but there was a very, very subtle translucency that gave this shade a stain-like appearance. It lasted for six and a half hours well and left behind a stain for another two hours. Givenchy Fuchsia Irresistible is cooler-toned, less red. Guerlain Girly has less shimmer. NARS 413 BLKR is more matte. NARS Jardin des Plantes is lighter. Guerlain Gigi is lighter, less shimmery. Guerlain Champs-Elysees is pinker. OCC Queen is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Anarchy Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “bright fuchsia.” It’s a bold, vibrant fuchsia-magenta with cool, blue undertones and a glossy sheen. It’s incredibly pigmented with opaque color in a single stroke. The consistency is creamy enough that it glides on readily but doesn’t slide around or feather outside the natural lip line. It wore for six hours well and left a fuchsia stain for another hour or so. Maybelline Electric Fuchsia is similar. Maybelline Fuchsia Flash is slightly less blue-based. Maybelline Hot Plum is a touch darker. MAC Dear Diary is lighter. MAC Night Blooming is purpler. MAC Show Orchid is darker, shimmery. MAC Pink Pigeon is more matte. MAC Daddy’s Little Girl is more subdued. MAC Candy Yum Yum is brighter. OCC Nylon is brighter and lighter. See comparison swatches.

Obsessed Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “bright baby pink.” It’s a subtly, cool-toned cotton candy pink with a luminous sheen. It had good color payoff, and the consistency had slightly more slip than some of the other shades, so it can get streaky if too much is applied. It wore for four hours when I tested it. MAC Raspberry Swirl is lighter, cool-toned. Maybelline Pink Pop is brighter, bluer. MAC Divine Choice is similar. MAC Pink Nouveau is bluer-based. OCC Narcissus is purpler. OCC Femme is lighter, warmer. See comparison swatches.

Turn On Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “rosy pink.” It’s a vibrant, cool-toned, medium pink with a luminous sheen. It had rich, full color coverage, and it applied evenly and smoothly. Turn On wore well for five hours when I tested it. MAC Speak Louder is darker. Chanel Insolente is warmer. Bobbi Brown Wild Rose is more muted, darker. See comparison swatches.

Urban Decay 69 Lipstick
Urban Decay 69 Lipstick

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.09 oz.) is back with a new and improved formula (as well as packaging). Urban Decay’s bringing back lipstick, and they’re doing in in a major, major way with twenty-two shades from bold, bright, and wickedly vibrant to soft, subdued, and natural. The formula is creamy, lightweight, and glides on with nearly full color coverage in a single pass. They wear anywhere from four to seven hours, with some leaving behind a stain for another one to two hours. The lighter shades tended to wear around four hours, while deeper and bolder shades lasted an average of six hours. The creamy consistency is comfortable to wear but doesn’t bleed or feather, while the formula itself is moisturizing. I didn’t detect any scent or flavor! This post focuses on the red and orange shades within the range.

69 Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “bright red with pink undertone.” It’s a bold, brightened medium-dark red with subtle cool undertones and a creamy finish. It was richly pigmented and lasted for six and a half hours, and it did leave a stain behind. Edward Bess Eternal Passion is very slightly lighter. Chanel Dialogue is more muted. Giorgio Armani Red Fuchsia is similar. NYX Chic Red is more matte. MAC Everyday Diva is warmer. MAC Ronnie Red is darker, more matte. Guerlain Gwen is slightly darker. Guerlain L’Heure Bleue is more shimmery. See comparison swatches.

F-Bomb Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “classic red.” It’s a neutral-warm, medium red with a glossy shine. It looks warm on me, but it looks somewhat cool or neutral in the tube, so this may turn warmer/cooler depending on your undertones. It had rich, full color coverage and wore for six hours well. NARS Mysterious Red is matte. Maybelline Infra-red is warmer. MAC Red Racer is similar. MAC Must Be Red is more muted. MAC Cockney is warmer. See comparison swatches.

Catfight Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “pink-fuchsia with slight red undertone.” It’s a pinky-red–almost a warm fuchsia–but it is still slightly cool-toned that is finished with a creamy shine. It had intense, full color coverage, and it wore well for six and a half hours. It also left behind a stain for another hour or so. Givenchy Fuchsia Irresistible #205 is cooler-toned, more fuchsia. Revlon Sorbet is sheerer, lighter. Tom Ford Aphrodisiac is cooler-toned. Guerlain Girly is cooler-toned. NARS Jardin des Plantes is shimmery. MAC Moxie is more matte. MAC Impassioned is lighter. Guerlain Gigi is a touch lighter. Guerlain Gourmandise is similar. See comparison swatches.

Bang Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “bright orange-red.” It is rich in color and intensely pigmented with fully opaque color and a soft, luminous sheen. It wore well, lasting six and a half hours, and left behind a soft stain. Maybelline Orange Edge is slightly redder. Maybelline Vibrant Mandarin is also slightly redder. Maybelline Electric Orange is lighter. MAC Fashion Nomad is lighter. MAC Scarlet Ibis is more matte, a touch redder. MAC Sail La Vie is similar. MAC Morange and MAC Neon Orange are lighter. MAC Lady Danger is more matte. Buxom Rogue is similar. OCC Psycho is a touch browner and more matte. See comparison swatches.

Streak Lipstick ($22.00) is described as a “coral pink.” It’s a warm-toned, coral-pink with a glossy shine. It had rich, full color coverage, and the consistency seemed slightly slicker than other shades.  It has a tendency to create “lines” if you press your lips together, so it could look somewhat streaky (ha, ha) if you aren’t careful. This shade wore well for four hours. Chanel Saga is warmer, lighter. Chanel Liaison is similar, less shine. NYX Stella is pinker. MAC Elegant Accent is darker, brighter. MAC Flamingo is slightly lighter. MAC Betty Bright is a touch lighter. See comparison swatches.
