MAC Nocturnals Lipgloss/Coral Set
MAC Nocturnals Lipgloss/Coral Set ($32.50 for 4 x 0.08 fl. oz. or 0.32 fl. oz.) contains one Dazzleglass and three Cremesheen Glasses. Both Dazzleglass and Cremesheen Glass a pricey formula, because they don’t contain a lot of product (0.06 oz. and 0.08 oz. respectively), but the holiday kits are an excellent way to snag them for much, much less than they would be individually. The Dazzleglass in the set actually contains 33% more (0.08 oz. compared to 0.06 oz.), so the value of that shade alone is $26.67, while the three Cremesheen Glasses are, essentially, full-sized and are a value of $60. The tubes are slightly wider and shorter than the full-sized versions. Three of the shades in this set are repromotes, while Night is Young is new.
Moth to Flame is described as a “sheer neutral beige with violet pearl.” It’s a peachy beige with white shimmer and sparkle. On lips, it adds some warmth but primarily sparkle/shimmer. It wore well for three hours. The texture is slightly thick and fairly tacky. It’s part of the permanent range. Chanel French Toffee (83) (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery. Chanel Zephyr (377) (LE, $29.50) is paler. Revlon Peach (P, $7.49) is more pigmented. MAC Sublime Shine (LE, $20.00) is similar. MAC Satin Slip (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery. Chanel Aurore (LE, $29.50) is similar. See comparison swatches.
On the Scene is described as a “pink with pink and white pearl.” It’s a pale, pinky-peach with a cream finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but it does tend to settle into lip lines, and if you press your lips together, you’ll see lines appear. It lasted for two and a half hours on me. MAC Flair for Finery (LE, $20.00) is slightly lighter. MAC Calypso Beat (LE, $20.00) is warmer. MAC Summer Sweetheart (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC Orange Tempera (LE, $15.00) is lighter. MAC Fashion Whim (LE, $20.00) is lighter. MAC Kiss Me Softly (LE, $20.00) is similar. Chanel Insouciance (P, $32.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches.
Night is Young is described as a “bright red cream.” It’s a cool-toned, blue-based bright red with a cream finish. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage, and it didn’t settle into lips noticeably. It lasted for almost three hours (which is on the longer side for this formula!). NARS Norma (P, $26.00) is more opaque. Chanel Emoi (P, $32.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.
Star Quality is described as a “bright orange coral.” It’s a light-medium coral-pink with a cream finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage and applied evenly for the most part. It lasted for almost three hours on me. MAC Drawn in Chic (LE, $15.00) is warmer. MAC Fever Isle (LE, $20.00) is shimmery. NARS Viva (LE, $26.00) is more orange/brown. MAC Kiss & Don’t Tell (LE, $15.00) is pinker. Hourglass Nectar (P, $28.00) is more orange. See comparison swatches.
