MAC x Antonio Lopez 3 Lips/Red Palette

MAC x Antonio Lopez 3 Lips/Red Palette ($27.50 for 0.13 oz.) contains three shades of lipstick with a red theme. Two of the shades are repromotes, and one is part of the permanent range.   The palette contains slightly more than an individual lipstick, which is 0.10 oz., so it’s not a value-packed palette, but you may like that you can get three shades for the price point (and individually, not that they’re sold that way, you couldn’t get two for this price). It will also depend on whether you’re a fan of lip palettes or not. The palette contains an itty, bitty lip brush and mirror.

Scarlet Ibis is described as a “bright orange red [with a Matte finish].” It’s a brightened, medium-dark orange-red with a matte finish. This is a repromote. It had completely opaque color coverage and wears long–six hours–and leaves a stain behind. It’s neither drying nor hydrating, but you’ll want to ensure your lips are in fairly healthy condition since it won’t provide any extra hydration while worn and it is has a matte finish (which is always less forgiving). MAC Dangerous just has an even more matte finish. Maybelline Orange Edge is glossier, slightly less red. Maybelline Vibrant Mandarin is glossier. MAC Sail la Vie is similar. MAC Lady Danger is more orange. Buxom Rogue is also more orange. See comparison swatches.

MAC Red is described as a “vivid bright bluish-red [with a Satin finish].” It’s a brightened, medium-dark blue-based red with a barely-there sheen. This shade is part of the permanent range. It had opaque color coverage, wore well for six hours and left behind a stain. It was slightly drying on me–I could feel it towards the tail end of the wear. MAC Glam is similar. Giorgio Armani Red Fuchsia is darker. NYX Chic Red is slightly darker. MAC Ronnie Red seems somewhat brighter. See comparison swatches.

Deeply Adored is described as a “deep scarlet [with a Matte finish].” It’s a deepened, brown-ish red with a matte finish. It tends to pull less brown, almost pinky-red, when sheered out or used more sparingly. This is a repromote. I noticed that it was harder to build up the color to get the brown tones to come forward in the palette than when applied from the tube–I felt like I had to use noticeably more product for opaque color than the other two or when I’ve applied this shade in tube-form. It lasted for five and a half hours well, and it did leave a stain behind. It was neither drying nor hydrating. NARS 413 BLKR is darker, browner. OCC Role Play is similar–slightly warmer. NARS Majella is brighter, warmer. MAC Extended Play is slightly browner. Dior Diorling is similar. MAC Such Flare is also similar. See comparison swatches.

I just noticed that the release date is Sept. 12. Wayne Goss’ makeup brush collection-which is produced by Artisan & Artist, who’s brushes are made by Chikuhodo-comes out then too, and I really want them so I will (most likely) not get anything from this collection. Sigh. So many nice things are being released.
