MAC Fashion Sets Lipsticks – Photos, Swatches and Reviews

Here are all the lipsticks featured in MAC’s Fashion Sets collection, with the exception of Chestnut and Spice, which I did not purchase. This collection came out a while back, but the majority of these lipsticks are permanent and are still available at your local MAC counter, store, or online. I am dividing these into two groups, as I did with the Lipglasses so it’s a little easier to compare them and you can get a good quality image of the swatches and products. Thanks for reading!

Angel (Frost):   This lipstick is a “soft pink” that’s a warm, light-medium shade of pink. It contains very fine shimmer particles that give it a frosted finish. Angel yields opaque coverage and wears well for around 4-6 hours. I like to use Dervish or Subculture Lip Pencil with Angel.

Girl About Town (Amplified Creme):   Girl About Town is a “bright blue fuchsia”. It’s a very bold, cool toned fuchsia that still appears more pink than purple, despite the blue-ish undertones. As an Amplified Creme finish, it gives opaque coverage and bright color payoff with a creamy, shiny consistency that leaves my lips feeling soft. Since Amplified Creme’s are so intense, Girl About Town gives me around 6 hours of wear before I need to touch up. I like to use Magenta or Embrace Me Lip Pencil or More to Love Pro Longwear Lip Pencil with this shade.

Impassioned (Amplified Creme):   This is an “amped-up fuchsia” that is warm toned and contains more deep pink and reddish undertones than blue or purple. It’s an Amplified Creme finish so the color payoff is great, giving opaque coverage without having to apply much product and has a shiny, creamy texture. This lipstick wears for about 6 hours without needing to be touched up. I like to use Embrace Me Lip Pencil or More to Love Pro Longwear Lip Pencil with Impassioned.

Morange (Amplified Creme):   Morange is described as a “loudmouth orange”. It’s a warm, slightly reddish orange that’s very intense. Like other Amplified Creme Lipsticks the color payoff is great and very much opaque and this Lipstick feels smooth and creamy on the lips, wearing for around 6 hours. My favorite Lip Pencils to use with Morange are Entertain Me and What A Blast!, which is a Pro Longwear Lip Pencil.

Myth (Satin):   Myth is one of my all time favorite nude lipsticks! It’s a “light neutral nude” which is fairly neutral, but still warm, so it looks good on nearly any skintone and never looks too yellow or brown. It’s light, but not so light that it gives you zombie lips like some nudes do. As a Satin finish, it’s very smooth and somewhat shiny on the lips. I get opaque coverage with Myth, although I find that it’s so creamy that it can sometimes look a bit streaky or uneven when applied heavily from the tube. To fix that issue, I usually use a brush to apply it with, or spread it around with my finger a bit after I put it on. Myth wears for around 6 hours on me. Some good nude Lip Pencils to use with Myth are Subculture, Naked Liner, or What Comes Naturally.

Peachstock (Satin):   This Lipstick is a “creamy beige peach”. It’s a warm, midtone nude color that’s definitely peachy and beige. It’s a Satin finish so it goes on creamy and is slightly shiny on the lips. It has a thick consistency and gives opaque coverage that wears for about 6 hours before I need to touchup. Stripdown or Subculture Lip Pencils work well with Peachstock, as well as Nice ‘N’ Spicy Pro Longwear Lip Pencil.

Pink Nouveau (Satin):   Pink Nouveau is a “bright pink” that is intense and has cool/blue undertones, but still looks good on nearly everyone. It’s a Satin finish, so it has a smooth texture and gives a slightly shiny appearance to the lips. The coverage with Pink Nouveau is totally opaque without having to apply much product. A few Lip Pencils that you could use with Pink Nouveau are Just Wonderful, Dervish or Embrace Me or even Magenta for a brighter look with more contrast.

Please Me (Matte):   Please Me Lipstick is a “muted rosy-tinted pink”. It’s a medium shade of pink with yellow based, warm undertones so it’s flattering on all skintones. As a Matte finish, it has a thick, creamy texture and has a slight bit of shine to it. Please Me gives opaque coverage with very little product applied and wears well for 5-6 hours. A few nice Lip Pencils that you can use with Please Me are Subculture (nude/neutral), Whirl or Dervish (pinks), or In Anticipation Pro Longwear Lip Pencil, which is nearly a perfect match.

Ravishing (Cremesheen):   Ravishing Lipstick is a “clean light peachy coral”. That description sums it up pretty well. It’s a lovely, warm, soft coral that’s suitable for all skintones, in my opinion. Ravishing has a Cremesheen finish, so it has good color payoff with opaque coverage, as well as a slightly glossy shine to it. Cremesheen Lipsticks typically give me about 4-5 hours of wear before I need to touch up. I usually use a neutral Lip Pencil like Subculture with this color, or for something a bit more bold, you could use Lasting Sensation. A little bird tells me that there’s a pretty coralish Pro Longwear Lip Pencil that just came out with the Hey Sailor! collection too.

Razzledazzler (Lustre):   This is a “light creamy coral”. It’s a warm, soft type of coral that’s really pretty on light to medium skintones. Since it’s a Lustre finish, it has a glossy sheen to it and surprisingly (for a Lustre anyway) gives almost opaque coverage. I get 4-5 hours of wear before I need to touch up with this Lipstick. This reminds me of Flamingo lipstick, although Flamingo was a bit more pink. You could use a neutral Lip Pencil like Subculture with this for added definition, or if you have it Mouth Off was a nice one too.

Rebel (Satin):   Rebel is one of MAC’s all time most popular colors. It is a permanent shade but they really seem to like repromoting it every few months to make sure everyone knows about it… Probably a good thing, since just by looking at the product itself, it can seem kind of dark and intimidating.

Russian Red (Matte):   Aside from Viva Glam I, this is my favorite red lipstick of all time. It’s flattering on everyone and makes your teeth look nice and white! It’s an “intense bluish red”. Russian Red is a Matte finish so it gives totally opaque coverage and wears well and a bit longer than most other MAC Lipstick finishes, giving around 6 hours of wear before needing any touch up. Although it’s a Matte, it still has a slight sheen to it. This pairs up nicely with Cherry or Brick Lip Pencil, or even Kiss Me Quick Pro Longwear Lip Pencil.

Saint Germain (Amplified Creme):   This is a “clean pastel pink”, although I see it as almost a Barbie or Pepto kind of pink. It’s a very bright, light-medium, cool toned pink. Amplified Creme Lipsticks give intense, opaque color payoff and last for around 6 hours without touchups. For a liner, you can use a neutral like Subculture Lip Pencil, or even go with something like Hip N’ Happy or Magenta for a brighter, more contrasting lip.

Snob (Satin):   Snob Lipstick is a “light neutral pink” that tends to look more cool toned than neutral on most people. It’s a Satin finish, so it gives creamy, opaque coverage with a bit of shine and lasts around 5-6 hours. I like to wear this with Dervish or Hip ‘N’ Happy Lip Pencil.
