Zerocool

MAC Zerocool Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium, springy green with warm, yellow undertones and fine emerald green and gold pearl. I had such hopes for this shade, but it had a lot of slip, which gave it a glossier finish and made it harder to apply, as it was slightly streaky and applied unevenly. There was also color that slipped into my lip lines, which worsened over time. It had medium coverage, which did not build up well due to the amount of slip (just seemed to make the end result look streakier). The lipstick wore well for three and a half hours and was lightly moisturizing.

The Metallic Lips collection features a new (and limited edition!) finish, Metallic, which is supposed to be “rich colour [that] melds with smooth pearlized chrome.” The range of shades is described as “vibrant, intense, [and] on-trend.” The coverage varied from shade to shade–anywhere from semi-sheer to semi-opaque–but many shades look like they’re more suitable for a subtle look or for layering on top of another lip product to add a more shimmery finish. The majority of shades featured finer shimmer, which translated to a more foiled, reflective look, but a few had some shimmer. The wear was between three and five hours, depending on the shade, and most shades had some slip but were not slippery overall, so they were comfortable to wear but not hard to maintain. They were vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.

Jupiter

MAC Jupiter Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with warm, reddish undertones and a fine, golden sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that was buildable to medium coverage. The lipstick felt smooth with some slip, so it was comfortable to apply and did not drag. The distribution of shimmer could have been slightly better, though, and I think that some of the unevenness is camouflaged by the mid-tone nature of the shade (blended in more with my natural lip color). It wore well for three and a half hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating.

The Metallic Lips collection features a new (and limited edition!) finish, Metallic, which is supposed to be “rich colour [that] melds with smooth pearlized chrome.” The range of shades is described as “vibrant, intense, [and] on-trend.” The coverage varied from shade to shade–anywhere from semi-sheer to semi-opaque–but many shades look like they’re more suitable for a subtle look or for layering on top of another lip product to add a more shimmery finish.

They were vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.

Pale Rose

MAC Pale Rose Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy copper with warm, brownish undertones and a pearly sheen. It had medium, buildable coverage, up to semi-opaque coverage, that applied evenly on the lips. The consistency had moderate slip, and it felt more like a hybrid between Lustre and Metallic with respect to the finish, as it had more slip than some of the other Metallic shades. It was comfortable to wear, lasted for four hours, and was lightly hydrating.

The Metallic Lips collection features a new (and limited edition!) finish, Metallic, which is supposed to be “rich colour [that] melds with smooth pearlized chrome.” The range of shades is described as “vibrant, intense, [and] on-trend.” The coverage varied from shade to shade–anywhere from semi-sheer to semi-opaque–but many shades look like they’re more suitable for a subtle look or for layering on top of another lip product to add a more shimmery finish.

Pearly One

MAC Pearly One Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a pale, silvery white with a glittery, metallic sheen. This shade had larger chunks of sparkle/glitter in it, which bunched up sometimes and gave lips a more textured look, but it had more medium, buildable coverage as a result. The shimmer distributed well across the lips, so it looked “even” despite being sheerer. I could feel the sparkle in the tube as I applied. The color wore well for three hours, though some shimmer lingered for much longer. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating overall.

The Metallic Lips collection features a new (and limited edition!) finish, Metallic, which is supposed to be “rich colour [that] melds with smooth pearlized chrome.” The range of shades is described as “vibrant, intense, [and] on-trend.” The coverage varied from shade to shade–anywhere from semi-sheer to semi-opaque–but many shades look like they’re more suitable for a subtle look or for layering on top of another lip product to add a more shimmery finish.
