MAC Elegant Accent Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “mid-tonal warm rose cream.” It’s a pinky-coral with a bit of rose and warm undertones. It has a soft, luminous finish that produces an all-over sheen. MAC Heart to Heart is slightly pinker and darker. Chanel Enjouee is darker. Burberry Primrose Hill Pink is glossier and more muted with less pink. MAC Watch Me Simmer is pinker and brighter. Chanel Genial is very similar. NARS Niagara is just a bit less bright.

It has full color coverage and applies smoothly, evenly, and easily–no tugging or pulling–because it has a creamy consistency that doesn’t feel thick or heavy on the lips.  I did see some lines appear if I pressed my lips together, and with how creamy the finish is on Elegant Accent, it was a bit more noticeable compared to some of the other shades. I don’t think it’s a deal-breaker, because I doubt most people looking at your lips would notice it, but it did make me fuss with it more while I wore it.  Elegant Accent lasted four and a half hours, which is nice wear, and it was lightly hydrating but the most hydrating from what I’ve tried so far within this formula.

MAC should give Christine a commission for all these MAC pics…particularly the lipsticks regarding these pics alone. Christine, you make these lipsticks look so yummy. I am not a MAC fan and I look at the pics for esthetic reasons…MAC lipsticks look so plastic pretty…smooth and plastic looking on the tube…and the rest of the pics from the swatches to your lips are devine.

Hi Christine,

Would you please do a overall recommendation of this bunch of mineralize lipsticks. I really wanna buy a few, but need your recommendations.

This is one of the best “collections” MAC has come out with in a while. The swatches i’ve seen of all the lipsticks look amazing! There are a few that are really unique and I’ll be purchasing for sure!

That is just plain gorgeous on you! I mean gorgeous! I have not purchased a MAC lipstick in probably 5 years, but this collection has some seriously pretty colors and I am encouraged that they are not drying, which is why I had to abandon them years ago. Figures that I would want to jump back on board with the most expensive formula. So far, I need this color (Elegant Accent)and Lady at Play. Waiting to see your Posh Tone, Style Surge, and Luxe Natural swatches. Wow, this could get expensive in a hurry. Thanks for the wonderful swatches and reviews.

Mac… Finally.. Welcome back!!! After some disappointing LE releases last year, you are back with good quality products that made me fall in love with you in the first place.

Christine… Amazing job as always!! I always look/ wait for your reviews before buying anything. You make me want to buy all the colors 🙂

Btw… How is this compare to Too Faced La Creme Juicy Melon?
Thanks!!

Unfortunately all the dupes I could think of (drugstore or high-end) are listed in the post already! 🙁

This looks like it could belong in the Spring Colour Forecast collection two or three years ago. It’s such a precocious color, I love it.

I am much too old to squeal in delight….oh to heck with it!!! (Squealing ensues) this color will be at my doorstep on Monday and I’m dying to get my hands on it! You do the best reviews 🙂
