MAC Lipstick Swatches

So i'm kinda sorta maybe addicted to lipstick (especially PINK) and decided i wanted to try a few more of mac lipsticks, some of which i heard are amazing and some of which no one really talks about, so i ended up buying like 5 bearing in mind ive already lost 3 of my mac lipsticks including my fave so far (Petals & Peacocks) :( Booo ! So here are the Swatches and some on lip swatches tooo (excuse my face, pretty please) -
My Natural lip color for reference

Pervette - A soft bright pink duochrome with violet opalescent shimmer in a Glaze finish
which is sheer but buildable.

Up The Amp - Described as an electrically charged lavender violet however is not as bright
as i expected, this has an Amplified finish which makes it more vibrant and opaque.

Lustering - Described as an outspoken pink (what does that even mean?) this is a hot pink that is a bit more red based the a true hot pink, this is a Lustre finish which is slightly sheer and glossy but again, buildable.

Love Forever - This is a bright blue based pink (a little less bright then pink nouvaeu) and its a Pro Long Wear Lip Creme which is quite mosturising for something thats supposed to stay on you lips for up to 12 hours although it gets a tad sticky after a few mins but nothing major ! I recommend these for anyone who hasn't tried them.

Pink Nouvaeu - A bright barbie pink with a Satin finish

Snob - Described as a 'Ladylike Mauve' (Mac really need to up their game with their descriptions) this is very very pale lilacy pink with a Satin finish.

Saint Germain - A bright pastel pink Amplified Creme very similar to Snob and Viva Glam Gaga. This finish is very opaque, creamy and smooth to apply.

Viva Glam Gaga - A sheer light blue pink with a Lustre finish 
A great dupe for this is Rimmel London's Pink Blush.
