MAC Cosmetics – Dress Camp Review, Swatches, Product Photos, Images

OVERALL, Dress Camp is incredibly pretty and chooses good hues/shades to create a very small (and limited!) collection. So while you may have been out of the house while it sold out in less than 24 hours, do not fear, there are known dupes for just about every color launched! I really adore the palette because it is ideal for summer, especially for someone with similar tastes to me (um, I’m all over golds!). The lipglasses are cute, as is the lipstick, but She-Gold is the most impressive out of the three.

Read a detailed review, plus see product photos, swatches, and comparison swatches!

Too Fab lipstick is a blue-based medium pink with no real shimmer, just a light sheen. It is relatively pigmented, but it is not so intense that you can’t wear a single layer and still have some sheerness to it–kind of like a compromise for those who have pigmented lips and those who don’t. If you’re looking for a dupe, it is a shade lighter than Fashionably Fuchsia (LE) and more pink by a shade or two than Rebel Rose (LE).

Fashion lipglass is a coordinating blue-based medium pink-fuchsia color with subtle shimmer. Good color intensity to give you decent pay off, but it is not such a bright fuchsia as say Totally It! from Fafi. Sweetie Cake (LE) is pretty much an exact dupe, while Standing Ovation (LE) is a little more fuchsia-red, and Love Rules (LE) is a bit too fuchsia-red, too. I would say it is relatively close to Pink Poodle, too, but still, more red-pink than blue-pink (I don’t own Pink Poodle anymore, sorry!).

She-Gold lipglass is a bright shimmery gold with gold reflects and a yellow gloss base. Alone, it gives mostly a covering of warm shimmer on pigmented lips; but like most lipglasses in this kind of family, I expect to get more wear out of it by layering over lipsticks. I couldn’t find an exact dupes for this, as it is much more gold than a lot of the previous yellow-based glosses (Backlit 3D glass, She’s A Star, and Vibrational).

DressCamp Palette is the most dupeable, even though the colors in it are definitely gorgeous. DressCamp Pink beauty powder is a shade more pink than Petalpoint (LE) blush, but it’s quite close to True Romantic beauty powder blush (which is just a little more pigmented). It is a cool medium pink with low level sheen. Sunny Girl is a soft yellow-gold without too much shimmer, but it is fairly close to Goldmine (perm). I would say Sunny Girl is paler and has less frost in its finish compared to Goldmine. It’s kind of like paleness of Gorgeous Gold + the color of Goldmine. Trend is my least favorite, because it is not nearly as pigmented and the pay off is minimal despite several heavy passes for the color. It is a cool neutral taupe kind of color, and I think Patina is a better version of it, to be honest. Patina is a little darker, but it carries a lot of the same tones. Golden Gold is a rich, intense bronze with gold pearl, and I immediately thought “Amber Lights!” Amber Lights is very similar in the color, though Golden Gold is smoother.
