Hollywood Nights/Quick Sizzle - Well, there's obviously a huge difference lol jk, they are the exact same shade but with different finishes. Hollywood Nights (from the Heatherette Collection) is satin while Quick Sizzle is matte and a nano bit cooler.
Vegas Volt/Watch Me Simmer - They're very similar oranges, both bright, but Watch Me Simmer has more pink/peach undertones wereas Vegas Volt leans more towards coral.
This was a really nice collection MAC put out that offered all different bright eyeshadows, beautiful lipsticks and glosses. I felt like this collection was well received overall and while I'm not entirely happy with dupeable colors, the hype I thought was deserved. I bought my first quads ever, they so happen to be the first quad that's been released that to me didn't have a shadow I already own.
I've read and heard some say about Colour Added quad and it's Self-Serve shadow not working well and fortunately for me it did, I was able to pick up shadow with my brush - not the absolute best but it's passable in results. Colour Added is such a beautiful shadow, I own nothing like it in my collection.
I liked all the lipsticks in the collection but were all, except for maybe Naughty Saute, were dupeable. I picked up Watch Me Shimmer because it was a tad pinker undertone than Vegas Volt which btw, on me, is hard to wear, so I got WMS in hopes it was more wearable. I'm still up in reservations about it - I don't want to own it just to own it, I want some usage out of it so I'm definitely going to experiment with that color.
If you already own Hollywood Nights, then skip on Quick Sizzle. If not then hopefully you were able to get it! I actually prefer Quick Sizzle because I'm a matte person but truthfully, I can't STAND obtaining makeup that is exactly the same or very similar to something I already own.
I overall am really happy with the Quads I bought. The lipsticks, well...
Anyone hauled what they wanted - thoughts on the collection?
