MAC Whirl vs Soar

Soar [UK] and Whirl [UK] are probably two of the most popular lip liners from MAC at the moment. They’re usually always sold out because these shades are so trendy at the moment, and they’re perfect everyday colors. So, MAC Whirl vs Soar — how do they compare?

One thing I really like about MAC lip liners in general is that they’re creamy, but not too creamy. They’re still stiff enough that you can precisely line your lips. Plus, you can use them as lip liners or as lipsticks, the latter of which is something I enjoy doing quite often.

So, how do they compare?

MAC Whirl vs Soar

Soar is described as a mid-tone pinkish brown, but I think it’s more like a brown toned pink because I see more pink than brown. It’s that browny-pink 90s lip that everyone has been loving this past year.

Whirl is described as a dirty rose shade, and I think that fits its description perfectly. It is a rose toned brown that leans more brown than pink, but it’s not overpowering. This shade is more “90s” because it’s darker and more brown, which, as I recall, was a shade very popular in the 90s.

Both are creamy and opaque so they work perfectly as lip liners and all over the lips as a lipstick. Both are pink toned neutral shades I think everyone should own because they’re very versatile. They are quite similar, but still different in their own right.

Personally, I prefer Soar much more, and it’s the lip liner I reach for the most out of all my lip liners– drugstore, high end and even designer brand.

    I’ve been wanting to try Soar for ages! Definitely going to pick one up tomorrow when I’m in town. Such a nice colour I’ll probably just use it as a lip colour xx

    • Yess girl! It’s the one I’d recommend out of the two, and I also love using it as a lipstick because it’s SO pretty.

  • I agree with you, Soar works better for me thanWhirl.

  • I definitely want to pick up Soar when I’m in the US, but now I’m tossing up whether I need Whirl as well! I don’t have any lip liners quite as brown but they’re similar enough that maybe I can’t justify it? Argh!

    • They are similar, but also not. I think they’re both good colors to have if you don’t mind spending the money! But, if you are only going to buy one I’d definitely go with Soar.

  • I really need these in my collection. Such lovely shades.

  • I haven’t tried any lip liners from MAC, but I see these ones everywhere and I don’t know how long I can resist them :) If I ever pick one, I would probably go for Soar too.

    I love Soar, it pairs well with lots of lippies I own. For a very long time, my go to MAC lip liner was spice. The colors look SO similar when swatched!

  • I really like Soar, I was a bit nervous it wouldn’t suit me, it’s as brown as I can go for my colouring but I’m beginning to love it ;)
