MAC Barking Gorgeous Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($23.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “light peach.” It’s a light-medium, peachy-orange with warm undertones and fine frosted shimmer. It had semi-opaque coverage at most, and it was somewhat streaky applied. The texture was lightweight, creamy, and hydrating overall, but the color/shimmer pulled into lip lines over the three and a half hours it wore for me.

MAC Fashion Pack Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($23.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “pale pink nude.” It’s a light, pink-tinted beige with fine pearl. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable coverage that applied fairly evenly. I had some issues with the color settling into lip lines after two hours of wear, and the color lasted three and a half hours in total. The formula was comfortable to wear and lightly hydrating. Tom Ford Beauty Alexander (2016) (P, $36.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Myself (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery, darker, more muted (90% similar).

MAC Labradorable Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($23.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “deep wine.” It’s a dark berry-red with subtle, cool undertones and a luminous sheen. On my skin tone, the red seems to pull forward a lot more than the berry in it, but it may look cooler-toned and less red against pink-toned complexions. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage, while the consistency had more slip than the other shades so it didn’t apply as evenly as I’d like. This shade didn’t feather on me, but the higher slip may make it prone to feathering on some. It wore for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Cordovan (DC, $21.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Diva Antics (LE, $19.00) is more pigmented, warmer (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Alasdhair (LE, $36.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Plum Brandy (P, $37.00) is darker (90% similar). Hourglass Warrior (P, $32.00) is cooler (90% similar). Milani Bitten (P, $8.99) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Giorgio Armani #408 (P, $32.00) is more muted (90% similar). Chanel Pourpre d'Or (137) (LE, $38.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Bruise (LE, $18.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Sugared Maple (LE, $24.00) is brighter, cooler (90% similar). Guerlain Orgueil (DC, $49.50) is darker (90% similar). Burberry Bright Plum (15) (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, less glossy (90% similar). Bite Beauty Mulberry (DC, $24.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar).

MAC Nose for Style Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($23.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “deep claret red.” It’s a muted, medium-dark coppery-red with warm undertones and a dusting of fuchsia and gold pearl. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly. This was one of the better shades in the five released with this collection. It wore well for almost five hours and was hydrating while worn. Buxom Runaway (DC, $21.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Bittersweet (03) (LE, $55.00) is more shimmery, lighter, less pigmented (85% similar). Chanel Antoinette (406) (P, $37.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Chanel Imperial (DC, $32.00) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Plum Shimmer (3) (P, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Eric (P, $36.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Rare Breed Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($23.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “midtone pinky nude.” It’s a muted, light-medium rosy pink with lighter, ultra-fine gold pearl. The coverage varied from semi-sheer to semi-opaque, so it was buildable as it was supposed to be. The texture was lightweight, creamy without being too slippery, and covered with even color. This shade wore for four hours on me and was hydrating while worn. MAC Marque (P, $23.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Baby Pink (DC, $28.00) is more shimmery, darker, less glossy (90% similar). Chanel Gardenia (DC, $34.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Chanel Cecile (432) (P, $37.00) is lighter (90% similar). Chanel Mademoiselle (434) (P, $37.00) is darker (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Roleplay (110) (DC, $30.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA SUMMARY | MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($23.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to be a “lightweight” formula that “nourishes lips with maximum moisture” with “long-lasting colour” that is “buildable” with a “medium-shine finish.” The formula has MAC’s signature vanilla scent but no discernible taste. The majority of the shades I’ve tested in this formula have semi-opaque to opaque coverage, last four to six hours, are hydrating, and feel comfortable to wear. Some shades will leave visible “lines” if you press your lips together, but it varies from shade to shade.

Mineralized is not one of my favorites. They feel heavy, don’t blend, look patchy, & don’t last. Also, they cost more than the other formulas. I usually buy most of the Fall collection, this one is disappointing.

I don’t know about the quality, but I really like the colours pretty much all round in this mac collection. Nose for Style in particular looks really pretty on you. It’s weird I used to own the Chanel Imperial (I miss the Rouge Allure Laques…) dupe and I remember it looking quite a bit darker and less red-toned on me – strange how colours vary from person to person.

Rare Breed is such a close dupe for Marque, same color, just lighter! No wonder it looks great!
I love Labradorable, but having just purchased UD After Dark, I wasn’t too sure that I need it. Until I looked at the dupe list and saw that these two are different enough to justify both, I think?

I ordered Rare Breed when I saw your initial swatches. I’m glad it did so well! I really love The looks of all of them except Fashion Pack. I love Barking Gorgeous too. But, I hate the lip line-pulling thing. So, I will pass on that one too. I already caved on Nose For Fashion too earlier when I glanced at the reviews as I don’t believe I have anything similar in my stash. I am teetering on Labradorable. But, I may have to wait for when this hits the counters (if it comes near me- I am thinking it will because it seems like a popular collection). It seems like a color I may have a lot a like. But, it has that sheen, ya know?. .Ugh. These Fall collections and BTS shopping for my daughter and fall sports ..agh.My wallet is about to jump off the bridge!

“Haute dog” when spoken aloud sounds like some sort of granola hippie invention designed to try and convert people to veganism, haha.

I love the look of these, and the Mineralize formula is one of the few from MAC’s line that I can wear. Rare Breed is probably my favorite of the bunch, though I’m curious if it would pull too warm on me. Rosy pinks have a bad habit of going sallow on me.

Thank you for your swatches but i want to comment about your eyes! You have lovely color and these eyeshadows you are wearing make them even more beautiful! You don’t write anymore the rest of your makeup do you? If it is somewhere written and i haven’t seen it i apologise!

Is Barking Gorgeous also a dupe from Salute (Hei Sailor)? Can you do a dupe with them? And also compare the one from the Osbourne Collection. I am in doubt, whether to buy this or the Marguerita from Giambattista Valli.
