Simply Smoked

MAC Simply Smoked Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour ($21.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark taupe brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage, though I would recommend a second layer or a lip liner for full opacity. The consistency was thinner than it should have been, as it did not apply as evenly as the best shades in the range have (but it was not the worst and looked decent after it dried down). On me, the lipstick wore well for six and a half hours, while 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!).

MAC x Kabuki Magic Today We Live Powder Blush Duo ($28.00 for 0.35 oz.) includes a soft, coral blush paired with a medium, taupe-brown.

Dearly Beloved

MAC Dearly Beloved Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good color coverage with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that glided across the lips without tugging. The lipstick wore well for five hours, was neither drying nor hydrating, and comfortable to wear.

This shade will be available on February 9th online and in select stores.

MAC Viva Glam Taraiji P. Henson Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage with a slightly firmer consistency in the tube. The texture was smooth, cream-like but did tug on the lips just a tad (not uncomfortably, though). On me, the color lasted for six hours, left a stain behind, and was non-drying.

This shade will be available on February 2nd.
