Are they the same?

I have managed to get my hands on the very desirable 'Ever Hip' from the Liberty of London collection via a swap so I can now compare it with 'Jazzed' lipstick from "In the Groove".


They do look VERY similar, it's quite bad of Mac really to release 2 lipsticks in the same year with both cremesheen finishes. Naughty, but I'm not complaining. :)


When swatched they look very similar, Ever Hip is a tinge more pink, but essentially they are the same colour even when applied to the lips. You really can't tell them apart, if you want to be fussy then Jazzed has a slightly more muted finish.

Do I need both?
No.
Do I want both? Yes.
Why? Different packaging, the slight tone difference is enough for me to justify having both because I'm greedy, plus they are both limited edition and are VERY pretty colours perfect for Summer.


I also did a swap with the gorgeous Ebru, I was having withdrawal symptoms over the Maybelline dream SMOOTH mousse aka Dream Creamy in the UK. The shades we have in the UK are rubbish compared to the US. My shade is Natural Beige.


She also sent me the NYC creme stick (blush) in 'Plaza Pink' which is very beautiful, the consistency isn't greasy making them perfect for hot weather, I would highly recommend you check them out if you are in the US as they are fantastic value for money. She also sent me a NYX lipgloss in 'Smokey Look' and a jumbo pencil in 'Milk'.


Wait, check this card that Ebru sent me...


This is the kind of thing I would say to someone too! :) So adorable!


Tried any of these products? What's your opinion?

LOL I WANTED and I NEEDED them both. I felt like it was a physical pain if I didnt get Jazzed! You see a good peach is very much hard to come by in the world of MAC. They will mostly likely come up with another one and repromote these.. and ill probably buy them all again!
Also I found every hip to be quite different in err.. texture. It spreads different!! (oh the lies we tell ourselves!)

Muhsine said...

@Tali LOL errr yes the texture, they are different they even have different names :) we clearly need every type of peach mac promotes. Nice to see you back, hope your eye is feeling better honey. X

Hell Notes for Beauty™ said...

They are gorgeous colors but they look so similiar and dream mousse concealer is my favorite. Great swap!

Kimberley said...

Hi Mushine, Love jazzed, but hard to get now. I'm jealous. I have Milk jumbo pencil too, you can get them from lovemakeup.co.uk, at quite a reasonable price.

I picked the Dream Creamy foundation a few days and I love it. My shade is just close to the 48 sun beige but the one below was too different!. A bit silly to change the name to market it in the UK. To me that "adaptation" is a bit pointless and confusing. Don't you think? Wonder the reason behind it.
I love the glowy finish of this foundation and I apply it with my 187 You only need very little and it covers very well. The only bad thing is that it only comes in a 14gm pot. Is the American version as tiny as the one we get?

Muhsine said...

@Mercedes yes the pot is tiny, very little product for such a large container, I don't understand why they confuse us with names and shades, bad bad maybelline!!!

Andee Layne said...

oh def have to give the blush stick and dream mousse a go! xo

Alice said...

I love Jazzed from my friend (Jazz XD) and I love it. You're right, it such a pretty colour for Summer. Which actually sucks, cos it's winter here. :P
And I LOLed at the thank you note. That's so cute!

Ariel said...

Justine @ Productrater said...

I missed out on ever hip, so I was excited to get jazzed and love it.

Ebru said...

They do look VERY similar! I wanted Ever Hip but by the time I realized that, it was gone forever. (I'm not even gonna complain about the Blooming Lovely fiasco anymore lol) Hey at least I got Jazzed and I loves it! :) Glad you enjoyed the stuff and the card! I'm preparing my side of the swap, awww! Thanks so much again Muhsine, you're such a sweetheart! :)) XO!

Cyndi said...

the smokey look lip gloss looks great over Jazzed!

Schnelle Couture said...

The lippies are very similiar, both are very pretty colors. It's funny how we always want what we can't have, without a little effort anyway. You are going to love the NYX jumbo pencil!

Laura @ The Beauty Spark said...

I skipped ever hip but bought jazzed, it's soo pretty on my hand but just doesn't seem to work on my lips!:( I'm hoping a nice tan will do the trick!

L.M. said...

Jazzed was a better color in my opinion, but I am currently in love with the new lipstick by Revlon in Peach!!! Try it out! http://beauty-is-within.blogspot.com/

shimmering2light said...

Rubinha said...

LilyLipstick said...

They are very similar but both are so pretty for summer that I don't blame you for having both!
The Maybelline stick blusher looks fab - I hope that comes to the UK soon. x

kirstyb said...

Glam and Glitter said...

Oh and for some reason the both remind me of lipstick dressmaker which is also a summery peach/not to say orange :)
They look absolutely stunning with an olive tone and now i do want the other one as well LOL xxxxx

VampiressDoll said...

They do look almost the same and how did I miss these shades? They're so pretty! x

Jadegrrrl said...

Catanya said...

Lol,
I have both Ever Hip and Jazzed and I also perceived that they are pretty much the same. I wish I had read this befoe getting Jazzed some weeks ago! I would not have skipped Ever Hip maybe because of its cute packaging, which I adore!
