MAC Courting Seduction Lipstick

MAC Courting Seduction Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “creamy pastel lavender [with an Amplified finish].” It’s a very light lavender with cooler undertones and a natural sheen. It had good color payoff, though not fully opaque. The texture was lightly creamy with some slip, so it didn’t tug when applied, but the color pulled into lip lines over the four hours it lasted. It was neither drying nor hydrating on me. MAC Love & Cherished (P, $17.50) is more shimmery, less pigmented (90% similar). LORAC Brunch Queen (LE, $18.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Fresh Amour (LE, $19.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Melt Cosmetics Darling (P, $19.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Make Up For Ever C503 (P, $22.00) is brighter, cooler (85% similar). Kat Von D Coven (P, $21.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Weekend 2 (LE, $17.50) is darker, warmer (80% similar). MAC Dodgy Girl (LE, $17.50) is warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Lured In Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone pastel purple [with an Amplified finish].” It’s a light-medium, lavender purple with cooler undertones and a natural finish. It had mostly opaque coverage, but it had quite a bit of slip and tended to look uneven and streaky applied. The color gravitated towards my lip lines, and as the shine wore down, this seemed to get worse over time. This shade lasted for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Urban Decay Vanity Kills (P, $17.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Make Up For Ever C503 (P, $22.00) is lighter (80% similar). Urban Decay Twitch (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). LORAC Brunch Queen (LE, $18.00) is lighter (80% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Belladonna (DC, $18.00) is darker, glossier (80% similar). Make Up For Ever C502 (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted (80% similar). Tarte Yaassss (P, $20.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Heroine Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “bright purple [with a Matte finish].” It’s a medium-dark, red-toned purple with warmer undertones and a semi-matte finish. This is part of the permanent range and has been released a few times before. It had mostly opaque coverage with a lightly creamy texture that applied without tugging but could have had a more flattering look at the end (seemed to emphasize the texture of my lips slightly). It is less matte than a previous tube of Heroine I have, as well. The color wore for over six hours and left a strong stain behind, while the formula felt neither drying nor hydrating. Dior Superstitious Matte (789) (P, $35.00) is darker (95% similar). Maybelline Vibrant Violet (P, $7.99) is darker, more muted, less glossy (90% similar). Too Faced Unicorn (P, $21.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). MAC Seductive Intent (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D L.U.V. (P, $20.00) is lighter, less glossy (95% similar). Colour Pop Lychee (P, $6.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Revlon Shameless (P, $8.99) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Kat Von D L.U.V. (P, $21.00) is more muted, less pigmented, lower quality (90% similar). Urban Decay Notorious (P, $17.00) is cooler (90% similar). NARS Kate (P, $34.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). NYX Twisted (P, $6.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Colour Pop Zipper (P, $6.00) is darker, less glossy (80% similar). Colour Pop Grind (DC, $5.00) is darker (90% similar). Anastasia #9 (Vol. 1) (P, ) is cooler (85% similar). Kat Von D Susperia (P, $20.00) is darker, more muted, less glossy (90% similar). Smashbox Tabloid (P, $21.00) is lighter (85% similar). Buxom Ultraviolet (P, $22.00) is lighter (85% similar). Anastasia Rage (P, $18.00) is lighter, cooler, less glossy (85% similar). Bite Beauty #098 (P, $18.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Men Love Mystery (P, $17.50) is lighter, more muted (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Lush Extract Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “deep royal purple [with a Matte finish].” It’s a deep, dark purple with cooler undertones and a very fine micro-shimmer that gives it a subtle sheen (it’s not matte at all!). The texture had some slip, which made it apply unevenly in places–it’s not the worst, but it would benefit greatly from a lip liner. The color lasted for five hours, and then it was reduced to a very strong, fuchsia-tinted stain. It was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Gunner (LE, $17.50) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). MAC Witching Hour (LE, $17.50) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pagan (P, $18.00) is darker (90% similar). Kat Von D Roxy (P, $20.00) is lighter, less glossy (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The MAC Blue Nectar Collection is a new, limited edition lip-oriented collection featuring twelve lipsticks (including four repromotes) and six Plushglasses (not reviewing these; my lips react to something in the formula). It launches online on June 2nd and will be available in-stores on June 9th.
