MAC Romantic Breakdown is a moderately warm-toned, light peach with a pearl finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $19.00 and contains 0.1 oz.
MAC Romantic Breakdown Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a "sheer nude [with a Lustre finish]." It's a muted, light peach with a hint of beige, warmer undertones, and a subtle shimmer. It had semi-sheer color coverage with a noticeable sheen and slight shimmer, which is what you might expect from a Lustre finish (they are designed as a sheerer option). The texture is thinner with some slip, and it applied fairly evenly though it pulled into lip lines as I wore it. This shade lasted for two and a half hours on me and was drying. Urban Decay Sheer Walk of Shame (P, $20.00) is less glossy. Tom Ford Beauty Orlando (LE, $32.00) is slightly warmer. Tom Ford Beauty Holden (LE, $32.00) is pinker. Burberry Gold No. 217 (LE, $33.00) is sheerer. Chanel Volage (227) (LE, $34.00) is less glossy. Chanel Charmeuse (142) (LE, $34.00) is similar. MAC Fleur d’Coral (LE, $16.00) is slightly pinker. Marc Jacobs Beauty Dizzy Spell (104) (P, $30.00) is warmer. Buxom Nudist (P, $21.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
