It had opaque color payoff with a smooth, even application that wore for four and a half hours and was comfortable to wear. Anastasia Kristen (-, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Spice (P, $17.50) is cooler (95% similar). Urban Decay 1993 (P, $20.00) is less pigmented, warmer (95% similar). Chanel Caresse (LE, $30.00) is lighter (95% similar).

MAC Till Death Do us Part Vamplify Lipgloss ($21.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as an “intense dark purple.” It’s a deep, dark purple with cool undertones and fine pearl. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color payoff that is hard to apply evenly. Due to the deeper color and gloss formula, I think this one needs a lip primer/lip liner or a more opaque (more matte!) lipstick underneath it to apply more evenly. The color wore for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Dreamz (LE, $18.00) is more muted, warmer (90% similar). Maybelline Royal (P, $7.99) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC She-Rebel (LE, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Purple Rain (-, $16.00) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Kat Von D Televator (P, $22.00) is more shimmery, less glossy (90% similar). Makeup Geek Backstage (P, $15.00) is warmer (80% similar). Giorgio Armani #604 (P, $29.00) is less shimmery, less pigmented (80% similar). MAC Night and Daze (P, $17.50) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | MAC Vamplify Lipgloss ($21.00 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.

Maybe very, very thinly? The problem I could see happening is that it’s just not a formula conducive to really getting a thin, even layer.

Love the MAC Vamplify formula! Pamela is pretty but I already got Tuned In, one of my fave glosses, so I’m set. also love the color Til Death Do Us Part, but worried it might be too slippery since it’s a gloss, might go for the Brooke Candy lippie instead

Just got spared! I do have Nyx Chocolate Crepe , with Colourpop So Wavy and EL Shameless on my “to-get” list. With super intense shades of purple, I prefer a more satin or semi-matte finish. Admittedly, these are both gorgeous shades though!

These are lovely! I think I’ll be trying to snag Till Death to Us Part and Witching Hour for sure. Fingers crossed — one never know with MAC releases.

Pamela is a definite yes! Till death do us part?? Meh, I’m on the fence with it. If it was totally opaque, it would be a definite yes…..I may have to try this in person. Maybe layering it over something??

I love the Nude color. The purple color appears to be poor quality! Looks like MAC is borrowing/ stealing Kat Von D packaging. They could have stuck with their classic packaging, which works anyway! Nothing ground breaking here!
