MAC Keepsakes/Nude Lip Bag

MAC Keepsakes/Nude Lip Bag ($39.50 for 0.31 oz.) includes three, full-sized peach-hued lip products, plus a glittery bag to put them in. The set launches October 17th online and will head in stores on the 23rd (see full details here. The set contains $47 worth of products (plus the bag).

Chic Supremacy Lipglass is described as a “soft creamy yellow nude.” It’s a light, yellowed peach with subtle gold shimmer. It looks mostly like a cream color applied. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but it was milky and thick enough that it settled into lip lines and was tough to even out. It lasted for three hours applied. Too Faced Naked Dolly (LE) is lighter. NARS Striptease (P, $26.00) is similar. MAC Revved Up (LE, $20.00) is warmer. Divergent Natural Virtue (LE) is similar. MAC Lovingly Yours (P, $22.00) is sheerer. Maybelline Nude Illusion (060) (P, $8.99) is warmer. MAC Flair for Finery (LE, $20.00) is pinker. MAC Liquid Passion (LE, $15.00) is yellower. MAC Summer Sweetheart (LE, $15.00) is pinker. MAC Peachstock (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC Illicit (LE, $15.00) is warmer. MAC Fashion Whim (P, $20.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Kiss the King Lipstick is described as a “peachy coral [with a Lustre finish].” It’s a muted, pink-mauve with gold shimmer and luminous finish. While there is warmth from the gold shimmer, the underlying color reads rather cool-toned on me. It had semi-sheer color coverage with a noticeable golden sheen and an overlal lightening of the lips. It lasted for three hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Too Faced Shimmering Marshmallow Bunny (LE, $22.00) is lighter. MAC Lip Blossom (P, $16.00) is warmer, darker. L’Oreal Ballerina Shoes (135) (P, $8.95) is pinker. Tom Ford Beauty Quiver (P, $48.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Boldly Bare Lip Pencil is described as a “dirty red brown.” It’s a muted, light-medium peach-brown with a matte finish. It lasts for six and a half hours, but it can be hard to apply all-over the lips. It gets a little tacky while it is drying down, so take care not to press lips together initially. It feels clingy and dry, but it wasn’t actually drying while worn. This is part of the permanent range. Urban Decay Naked 2 (P, $19.00) is very similar. Urban Decay Deep (P, $19.00) is darker. Urban Decay Naked (P, $19.00) is pinker, lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The lip pencil with the gloss on top = stunning! both on their own don’t look so appealing. the lip pencil looks too dry and the lipgloss looks mediocre.

Still searching for the perfect not-to-warm nude lipstick, Kiss the King could be something for me… and the pouch is so cute;) But what rocks this post is your flashy blue eyeliner – adorable!

If you have nudes in your stash already that you find too warm, try the NYX Macaroons lipstick in Earl Grey! It’s only about $6, and plays nice with every lipstick I’ve tried it it with. HTH

I would actually buy this for that lipstick! And if that ISN’T the dumbest thing I could say I’ll add this: Am I reading this is available online October 17th? That was yesterday… what information am I missing cause I don’t see it and I’m starting to feel like someone is playing a joke on me LOL!! Also: what do you think about the bag?

I bought this set and I love the kiss the king lipstick! The lip liner is ok but the lipglass is not good..really doesn’t suit the other two, a more brownish nude would look better so I’m disappointed and think I’ll return the set. But if Kiss the king is sold individually I will definitely buy it!
