MAC Iris Apfel Lipstick Swatches & Some Comparisons

Aren't they beautifullll!?

Impassioned vs. Party Parrot
Their color is very similar, indeed. But their finish is much different with Impassioned being much more glossy than Party Parrot, which is a matte. Also, I find Party Parrot to be a lot more rich, even though that doesn't traslate in the photo above.

Scarlet Ibis's closest permanent dupe is Lady Danger, but it is slightly more matte than Lady Danger. Still worth owning both, in my opinion.


  1. Thanks for the beautiful swatches lauren!! I have impassioned but always wished it was more matte, and I've been lemming Lady Danger a lot recently. Also interesting how Ruby Woo's texture seems a lot different than the other mattes!

  2. Great swatches.. I like Flamingo and Party parrot :)

  3. i want all of them lol !

    Going through my lisptick collection I mostly own MAC Amplified finish lipsticks :s guess i like bold color lol

    - MARLA

  4. I agree these lipsticks are beautiful, however i'm a little dissapointed there wasn't a true pillarbox red, as the ad imagery suggests x

  5. @Rachel, Scarlet Ibis looks just like a pillarbox red to me...what do you think they could have done differently to it?

  6. I like the 'Flamingo' shade very much. All the other shades are very dark. Thanks a lot for sharing!

  7. I am so excited after seeing your blog.
