MAC x Antonio Lopez 3 Lips/Nude Palette
MAC x Antonio Lopez 3 Lips/Nude Palette ($27.50 for 0.13 oz.) contains three limited edition shades of lipstick with a nude theme. The palette contains slightly more than an individual lipstick, which is 0.10 oz., so it’s not a value-packed palette, but you may like that you can get three shades for the price point (and individually, not that they’re sold that way, you couldn’t get two for this price). It will also depend on whether you’re a fan of lip palettes or not. The palette contains an itty, bitty lip brush and mirror.
Vivid Image is described as a “light white pink [with an Amplified finish].” It’s a light-medium, milky pink with subtle yellow undertones and a barely-there sheen. The consistency is creamy, slightly thick, and can be unforgiving if lips are exfoliated prior to application. It wore for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Beauty is lighter, more beige. MAC Raspberry Swirl is darker, pinker. MAC You’re Perfect Already is slgihtly more beige. MAC Dreaminess is a touch pinker. Chanel Candeur is sheerer. OCC Femme is darker, pinker. See comparison swatches.
Antonio’s Girls is described as a “light peach [with a Satin finish].” It’s a medium, warm-toned peach with just a smidgen of pink. It has a satiny sheen and mostly opaque color coverage. It lasted for four hours and was just a touch drying. Chanel Sentiment is darker. MAC Sweet & Sour is more orange. MAC Shy Girl is a bit darker. Chanel Peregrina is pinker. See comparison swatches.
Art Directed is described as a “glossy sheer champagne [with a Glaze finish].” It’s a shimmering, medium beige with warm undertones and multi-colored shimmer. The finish looked more metallic on the lips, and it had sheer, shimmering color payoff. It lasted an hour and a half on me when I wore it. It was somewhat drying. MAC Smash Hit is more glittery and warmer. MAC Pleasureseeker is warmer and more coral/orange when applied but applied it is a less shimmery version. See comparison swatches.
