Gritty Girl

MAC Gritty Girl Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is muted, medium brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, thicker texture that seemed to emphasize the texture of my lips slightly. The color went on evenly and adhered well to my lips, so the color managed to last for a solid five hours despite being a lighter shade. It was slightly drying over time, though.

High Drama

MAC High Drama Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour ($21.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a deep berry with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied somewhat evenly. As it dried down, the color didn’t self-level so there were some visible streaks. The formula had a more watery consistency, which made it harder to apply and control along the edges of the lips, and the color seemed to sink into some lip lines. This shade lasted for six and a half hours before starting to fade on me, and the formula was somewhat drying.

The Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour formula is supposed to be pigmented, last eight hours, and be “non-feathering.” They are typically pigmented and long-wearing, but the quality of the formula is all over the place–some shades wear down evenly, aren’t too drying, and apply well, while other shades are patchy, streaky, or prone to flaking (and also terribly drying!).

Into the Madness

MAC Into the Madness Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, light-medium chartreuse green with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage (almost to full coverage) that applied evenly. The consistency was lightly creamy, not too thick or too thin, and was comfortable to wear, though I had some color pull into lip lines over time. This shade wore well for four and a half hours and gave my lips a slightly peachy stain, and the formula was neither drying nor hydrating.

Enhance Me

MAC Enhance Me Casual Colour Lip & Cheek Colour x 6 Palette ($40.00 for 0.21 oz.) consists of six cream-based shades that can be used on lips or cheeks. The Casual Colour formula is supposed to be a cheek and lip color with a “dewy” glow that’s blendable and hydrating. In general, I like the Casual Colour as a cream blush–pigmented, blendable, long-wearing–but it falls flat as a lip color, as there’s an almost powder-like feel once they’re on that makes the formula feel clingy and slightly drying over time. The best way (that I’ve found) to use them as a lip color is to apply them lightly on the lips and topped with a balm or sheer gloss as more of a subtle lip stain.

MAC Carmine Rouge Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark pink-red with cool undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff with a smooth, creamy texture that wasn’t too thick or too thin. The lipstick applied evenly, sat well on the lips, and lasted for nearly eight hours. It also left a stain behind, and it was neither drying nor hydrating over time.

Digging It

MAC Digging It Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a rich, mahogany brown with warm, reddish undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage that went on evenly and smoothly. The texture was lightly creamy so it didn’t tug on my lips when I applied the color directly from the tube, but the consistency sat well on the lips and did not slide around over the six hours this shade lasted for. I noticed a slight, reddish stain left behind after wear. The formula was non-drying to me.
