MAC Nutcracker Sweet Pink Lip Gloss Kit ($35.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) contains three Cremesheen Glasses and one Dazzleglass in variations on “pink.” Cremesheen Glass is supposed to be creamy, hydrating, and sheerer. Dazzleglass is supposed to have medium coverage with a hydrating, non-tacky formula filled with lots of shimmer/sparkle. In general, Cremesheen Glass tends to have a creamier, milkier quality to it, which makes it comfortable and hydrating to wear, but it often looks streaky, settles into lip lines, and is shorter wearing. Dazzleglass is moderately tacky, thicker, and wears longer and has tons of sparkle, but it is more semi-sheer in coverage. What I’ve always found funny about the holiday gloss sets is that they’re called “minis,” but they’re larger than full-size.

Fashion Scoop is a pale, light pink with a milky consistency and finish paired with fine pink pearl. The texture was smooth, creamy, and non-sticky, but it was a bit streaky and prone to gathering in lip lines. The wear was only two hours, though it was hydrating. Chanel Imaginaire (P, $32.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Embraceable Me (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

Charm is a bold, slightly brighter, medium-dark pink with cool undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly, though I noticed some of the color still settled into lip lines. The overall richness of the color made it harder to see at a normal viewing distance. The color wore well for four hours and was moisturizing. MAC Twirling (LE, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). Illamasqua Belladonna (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Ultramarine Pink (LE, $30.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).

Twirling is a medium-dark berry with cooler undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly, but there was still some noticeable color in some of my lip lines (but far fewer than the other two shades). The gloss wore well for four hours, was comfortable to wear, and it felt hydrating. NARS Penny Arcade (LE, $26.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS La Main Bleue (P, $26.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Maybelline Amethyst Potion (045) (P, $8.99) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Charm (LE, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). NYX Toasted Marshmallow (P, $5.99) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay After Dark (P, $26.00) is brighter (90% similar). Sephora Ruby (42) (P, $12.00) is warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Vice (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). NARS Shade III (LE, $26.00) is lighter, more muted, warmer (85% similar). Sephora Plum Fiction (19) (P, $12.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Milani Ravish Raspberry (06) (P, $5.49) is lighter, brighter (85% similar).

Rags to Riches is a light-medium pink with warm undertones and multi-colored sparkle. It added mostly warmth to my natural lip color and a medium level of coverage of shimmer/sparkle. It was easy to wear on its own but could be layered over other lip products, and the gloss didn’t seem to settle into my lip lines either. The texture was tacky, so despite being sheerer, it lasted for five hours on me. Revlon Orchid (P, $7.49) is less shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals Heartbreaker (LE, $18.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Giorgio Armani #500 (P, $29.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Feeling Fine (LE, $15.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Giorgio Armani #502 (P, $29.00) is warmer (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Pink Diamond (326) (DC, $28.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Purpurine (LE, $15.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Dior Dolly Pink (453) (P, $29.50) is darker (90% similar). Sephora Good Fairy (LE, $14.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Out for Glamour (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Gold (P, $24.00) is cooler (90% similar).
