MAC Spanking Haute Vamplify Lipgloss

MAC Spanking Haute Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as a “pinky nude.” It’s a light-medium, pink-tinged peach with a creamy, glossy finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a comfortable-to-wear formula but uneven coverage that was prone to appearing streaky on. It’s not the worst offender I’ve come across, but it has a messy to look to it without a lipstick or liner underneath it. On me, this shade wore for four hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Fashion Punch (P, $10.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Overspiced (LE, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Bite Beauty Vanilla Latte (LE, $22.00) is darker (95% similar).

MAC Tuned In Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone rosy nude.” It’s a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with warm gold pearl. It had mostly opaque coverage, while the consistency was very smooth and lightweight. The color applied evenly and didn’t settle into lip lines as it wore on. For me, this gloss stayed on well for five hours and was nicely hydrating. Marc Jacobs Beauty Love Drunk (320) (P, $29.00) is lighter, less pigmented (90% similar). Chanel Audace (20) (LE, $34.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). NYX Chocolate Crepe (P, $5.99) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar).

Marc Jacobs Beauty Shooting Stars (316) (DC, $28.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Looks Like Sin (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, less pigmented (85% similar).

MAC Hyper-Fabulous Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as a “mauvey brown.” It’s a muted, dark plummy brown with subtle, warm undertones and very fine lavender pearl. In the tube, it looked rather close to Tuned In, but this shade is definitely darker and doesn’t appear as warm as it doesn’t have all the gold shimmer. It was nearly opaque with a lightweight, spreadable consistency that sat well on the lips for the five hours it lasted. The formula applied evenly and smoothly, while it hydrated lips over time. Cle de Peau Chenille (12) (P, $48.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Shadowheart (DC, $26.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Chanel Intrigue (P, $30.00) is warmer (85% similar). Guerlain Madame Fascine (863) (LE, $30.00) is lighter, less pigmented (90% similar). MAC Fab Tested (LE, $20.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Deep Kiss (LE, $20.00) is less pigmented, cooler (90% similar). Jouer Fifth Ave (P, $17.00) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Asphalt Jungle (LE, $26.00) is more shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Love Drunk (320) (P, $29.00) is lighter (80% similar). Chanel Audace (20) (LE, $34.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). Becca Malibu Soleil (LE, $22.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). MAC Show Me (DC, $19.50) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA SUMMARY | MAC Vamplify Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is supposed to have intense, vivid color paired with a moisturizing, glossy, long-wearing formula. Some shades are very pigmented while others are semi-opaque, and some shades apply evenly while others are more streaky. They have a light-medium thick consistency that’s not heavy or goopy, but it’s not really thin; however, they’re really smooth and creamy, so they feel nice on. There’s no tackiness initially, and it feels a lot like lip balm to me–soft, smooth, and my lips felt supple. I find they develop light to moderate tackiness as they wear on. They wear anywhere from three to five hours and are lightly to moderately hydrating over time. The formula has strong, vanilla scent (stronger than their lipsticks; I can smell it for a bit even when it is applied, not just in the tube) but no discernible taste.

I really like all three because I would wear a mlbb liner under the first. I wish these were permanent! I think I may get tuned-in if it’s still around!

Oh man, Tuned In and Hyper Fabulous brings back fond memories of the ’90s 🙂 I might have to get Tuned In for memories sake. I’m a sucker for gold pearl, and it doesn’t look like there are tons of dupes for this shade. Still waiting for Colour Pop to debut their ’90s collection

Ahhh, this collection is seriously slaying me, I tell you! Tuned-In and Hyper-Fabulous have me needing them BOTH. What am I going to do? Between these 2 and yesterday’s 3, I have $$$ anxiety. With accompanying fear for my sanity, LoL!
Lucky for me, Spanking Haute isn’t calling to me!

Tuned In and Hyperfabulous look amazing on you!!

I ordered both of these.. is the shimmer noticeable in person? I’m not really a fan of shimmer :/

Hoping they look as good on me as they do you 🙂

Wow, I love both Tuned In and Hyper-Fabulous! Both look very flattering and the subtle pearl gives them a lot of depth. MAC at its best!
