MAC Semi-Precious Lipstick, Cremesheen Glass, Blush, and MSF Dupes & Comparisons

Phew – this took me all day to do! Β It’s already 10PM here, so I don’t think I will be able to get the eyeshadow comparisons up until 2 or 3AM but will work as quickly as possible to get those up for you.

  • GEO PINK is closer to So Bad (limited edition) than Fold & Tuck (limited edition), as it’s more orange but obviously has much more glitter in it.
  • PURE MAGNIFICENCE is more muted (almost gray) in comparison to Urban Decay Peroxide, while Boy Bait looks peach next to it.
  • NATURAL FLARE doesn’t compare that well with any of the shades I pulled when swatched, but they look much closer when worn (on my lips). Part of that is based on the sheerness of Natural Flare. Utterly Posh seemed the closest but it looks noticeably redder and isn’t much of a brown. I also compared it to Burberry Cameo, Light That Fire, and Kumquat, but these were not comparable.
  • LUSH AMBER is closest to Freckletone, which is just a little warmer. I also compared it to Martha, but it was not comparable.
  • GEM OF ROSES is a lighter version of Chanel Mademoiselle, which appears a little redder in comparison. I also compared it against Naughty You, but it was not close enough.
  • ONE OF A KIND is a lighter, sheerer version of both Estee Lauder Plum Fizz and Guerlain Galante.
  • MUSKY AMETHYST is slightly darker but sheerer than Odyssey, while Make Up For Ever #13 is brighter and more opaque.
  • FEELING FLUSH was closest to Band of Roses (limited edition), which appears slightly cooler-toned. I also compared it to Her Blooming Cheek, Full Fuchsia, Over Dyed, and Amazon Princess–none of these were simila.
  • PRESSED AMBER was closest to Korres #15. I also compared it to Peachtwist, Darkly My Dear, and Eversun (none of them were very comparable).
  • WARMTH OF CORAL ended up being comparable to Peaches, which is perhaps slightly less peach in comparison.
  • PEARL is not as rosy as Honey Rose.
  • ROSE QUARTZ is similar to Rhapsody in Two (limited edition), which is a little lighter. Petticoat was much, much too dark.
  • GOLDSTONE might be dupeable with either the Golden Lariat or Pink Power mineralize skinfinishes (both limited edition) from Wonder Woman, depending on how you mix the trio of shades. Golden Lariat is more likely to get you there.
  • CRYSTAL PINK didn’t turn out to be much like other MSFs that I have. The closest was Porcelain Pink, but it is significantly pinker and warmer in comparison. I also compared it to By Candlelight and Perfect Topping.

compare them in the swatch gallery to see for yourself. they look nothing alike. sonoran rain is clearly red and geo pink is about a million shades lighter and is a coral. hope that helps!

Hey, do you think pressed amber looks similar to The Soft Meow blush that came out with the fabulous felines collection? Thanks!

What in incredible amount of work you’ve been putting in. I know it sounds like sucking up, it’s not, but I so appreciate your effort and dedication to your readership.

Well done.

I always find your comparison swatches invaluable! Do you think pure magnificent looks like fashion scoop and is gem of roses anything like syrup?

Christine – I SO SO SO appreciate your comparisons and reviews. Because I do the majority of my cosmetics shopping online, all the time and effort you spend really makes a HUGE difference and really helps me decide exactly what purchases are worth my money. Thank you for all you have done to make Temptalia the best beauty resource on the web!

I can’t believe how similar all these colors are to each other. Thanks for your work, Christine–I’m definitely not dropping any cash on this collection.

Warmth of Coral and Peaches looks almost identical. Does Warmth of Coral have more sheen or shimmer to it then Peaches???
