MAC Cut-a-Caper Lipstick

MAC Cut-a-Caper Lipstick is a semi-opaque, medium coral-pink with a lustre finish. It’s a limited edition shade that launched in the MAC 2010 Tartan Tale Collection.

The color is quite pigmented and can be built easily with additional coats. It is vibrant, but not nearly as vibrant as it looks in the tube. Because it’s not completely opaque, it’s a shade that’s easy to wear.

Here is MAC Cut a Caper on my lips (my lips are lined with MAC Subculture Lip Pencil)

Here is a comparison of Cut-a-Caper next to MAC Jazzed and Everhip (both limited edition shades). Sadly, I don’t own MAC Ravishing, but it’s another lipstick that is often compared to these.

Swatches from left to right: MAC Cut a Caper, MAC Everhip and MAC Jazzed.
All three lipsticks are very similar. They share the same vibrancy and depth. Cut-a-Caper has the strongest pink tone of the three. Jazzed has the most orange/coral tone. Everhip is the “in-between”. It’s stronger in pink than Jazzed, and more orange/coral than Cut-a-Caper.

Other Comparisons: (I forgot to add Illamasqua Obey in the bunch – which definitely belongs in the category)

  1. I love Cut a Caper! I was actually stressing about what to do when my tube's all gone, so thank you for the budget comparisons like Wet n Wild and NYX!
