MAC’s Most Popular lipstick

This was the “sedate” red released with the Hello Kitty collection. Big Bow, a semisheer hot pink, and Strayin', a deep fuchsia, were good colors…but not necessarily work appropriate (at least, not for meeting with clients or higher-ups.)

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the lip color in the tube; top right, the color applied over bare skin, to better show the shade; and below, the color applied to the lips. Comparison: MAC's Most Popular vs. Morgana's Rose Plum

If you really wish you had gotten this color, check out Morgana Cryptoria's vegan Rose Plum lipstick. You won't get the MAC branding, or the Hello Kitty design stamped into the lipstick; but if you've been looking for this specific shade (rather than this specific product)...Rose Plum is a near-exact dupe. Rose Plum is a bit more pigmented than Most Popular; but not very much. These two are the closest MAC-to-Morgana match of the three that I was able to confirm (Azalea Blue::Strayin'; Rose Plum::Most Popular; Coraline's Kiss::Viva Glam Cyndi.)
