MAC Flamboyish Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium magenta pink with cool, blue undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage with a fairly smooth, thinner texture that tended to emphasize the texture of my lips just slightly. It was applied evenly and lasted for hours–it was still going strong after six hours and left a stain behind when I removed it. The formula was slightly drying.

MAC Kingdom of Sweets Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a pale, milky pink with a strong, white base and subtle, cool undertones paired with a natural finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff, which applied more evenly than I anticipated, as these milkier shades tend to look very streaky. I had just a touch of color pull into lip lines, but it was barely noticeable and didn’t worsen much more over time. The consistency was lightly creamy with moderate slip and was comfortable to wear. It wore for three and a half hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. Smashbox Obvi (P, $21.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Tease Me (P, $20.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar).

MAC Leap of Delight Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark purple with warmer, pink udnertones and a satin finish. The consistency was lightly creamy and glided on without tugging on the lips, but it wasn’t slippery, so it didn’t slide around on the lips easily. It had mostly opaque color coverage that went on evenly and left behind a stain after I wore it for six hours. NARS Kirat (P, $34.00) is darker (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M502 (P, $22.00) is glossier (95% similar). MAC Punk Couture (P, $17.50) is darker (95% similar). MAC Potent Fig (LE, $19.00) is glossier (90% similar).

MAC Saucy Little Darling Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium pink with warm undertones and a natural finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation that applied with smooth, even color. The consistency had light slip so that it glided on without tugging on the lips but didn’t slide or feather on me. I found the light sheen and emollient consistency to be more flattering on lips, as it didn’t emphasize my lip lines or settle into them. This shade stayed on nicely for five and a half hours and was a touch hydrating. MAC Love at First Bite (LE, $17.50)(95% similar). Urban Decay Checkmate (P, $17.00) is darker (95% similar). Colour Pop Barely There (P, $5.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Wet 'n' Wild 15 Minutes Aflame (P, $0.99) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Make Up For Ever C306 (P, $22.00) is darker (90% similar).

MAC So Good For You Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark red with strong, cool, pink undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff, though it wasn’t fully opaque; it had an even translucency to it so that it looked rich and bold, but a hint of the natural lip color still came through. The texture was firmer, a little velvety in the tube, but it took more pressure to apply and tugged on the lips as I worked it across my lips. It felt thinner, somewhat clingy, and overall, moderately drying over time, but it lasted for over six hours and left a strong stain behind. Tarte Cheerleader (P, $20.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Kat Von D XO (LE, $20.00) is darker, more muted (95% similar). MAC Candy Cane (LE, $17.50) is darker (95% similar).
