MAC Ablaze Nail Lacquer

MAC Ablaze Nail Lacquer ($16.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright orange cream.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark orange-red with a cream finish. I would describe it as more red than orange, but it’s not just a warm red. MAC Kid Orange is very similar. NARS Lal Mirchi is more orange. MAC Morange is lighter and more orange. Essie Meet Me at Sunset is redder. Essie Braziliant is similar but has shimmer.

MAC Ablaze Lipstick

MAC Ablaze Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “bright apricot cream.” It’s a medium-dark coral-red with a barely-there sheen (not quite a flat matte). I actually think it looks very much like MAC Lady at Play, and if there was any detectable difference, it would be that Lady at Play is ever-so-slightly lighter (and of course, it has a more luminous finish). Guerlain Nahema is pinker, more subdued, shimmery. MAC Watch Me Simmer is pinker. MAC Hibiscus is redder, darker, shimmery. Wet ‘n’ Wild #909D is slightly darker. MAC Toxic Tale is a smidgen darker but very similar.

MAC Heroine Lipstick

MAC Heroine Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “bright violet/purple.” It’s a medium-dark, red-toned purple with a satin finish. Heroine originally launched with Reel Sexy last March. MAC Seductive Intent is slightly lighter and pinker. MAC Strong Woman is darker, purpler. MAC Violetta has a light shimmer but is otherwise a worthy dupe to consider.
