Bi-ceptual

MAC Bi-ceptual Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium peachy beige with warm undertones and a natural finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage that went on evenly and, despite its lightness in color, did not pull into my lip lines much! It was a Lustre finish, so the coverage level was expected to be sheerer. The texture was lightweight, thin but not clingy, and had enough slip not to drag when I applied it from the tube. It wore well for two hours and was non-drying.

  1. What were your favorites from the last month?
  2. What didn’t impress you?
  3. Did you return anything you purchase?
  4. Or successfully resist temptation?

Flex Appeal

MAC Flex Appeal Crystal Glaze Gloss ($22.00 for 0.41 oz.) is a muted, berry-tinted translucent base with barely-there pearl. It gave my lips a slightly darker, pinker look but did not add a lot of color or coverage. It had sheer coverage, which wasn’t buildable, that lasted for two hours. The consistency was smooth, jelly-like, and comfortable to wear. The formula was hydrating over time.

The Crystal Glaze Gloss formula is supposed to be an “ultra-moisturizing gloss” that has “an intense, glossy shine.” The texture was soft, smooth, and almost jelly-like–but denser and not quite as slippery. It felt balm-like on the lips and had no tackiness at all (completely unlike most of their gloss formulas) and had a very light vanilla scent. MAC recently released this formula in their Makeup Art Cosmetics collection, and it’s part of the upcoming Work It Out launch that debuts on Thursday.

However, only one of the six new, limited shades for Work It Out is described as sheer, and the formula runs sheer, which is where it falls the shortest. This formula is best for someone who likes tinted gloss that’s hydrating and non-sticky but not someone who wants noticeable coverage. I’ll definitely check back on the official description (to see if it changes) when these officially launch, though.
