MAC Lavender Jade Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “dirty mauve with gold pearl [with a Matte finish].” It’s a cool-toned, light-medium lavender purple with a satin finish. It had rich, opaque color coverage that went on smoothly and evenly. The texture was a little thick overall, and I noticed some of the color pulled into lip lines after four hours of wear, though total wear time was around five hours. It was lightly drying after three hours. Maybelline Lilac Flush (725) (P, $7.49) is pinker, glossier, sheerer. Colour Pop Brills (P, $5.00) is pinker, more matte. NYX Violet (P, $6.00) is darker. Kat Von D Coven (P, $21.00) is cooler-toned, lighter. Melt Cosmetics Darling (P, $19.00) is lighter. MAC Dodgy Girl (LE, $16.00) is lighter, pinker. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Rollergirl (P, $18.00) is darker. MAC Fresh Amour (LE, $16.00) is lighter, grayer. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Digitalis (P, $18.00) is lighter, pinker.
