MAC x Brooke Candy Lipsticks

MAC Mind Control Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “bright cherry red [with an Amplified finish].” It’s a brightened, medium-dark red with cool, bluish undertones and a very, very fine dusting of gold and pink micro-shimmer (it’s really not noticeable as a distinct shimmer, only as a sheen). It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a creamy, moderately emollient consistency that glided on easily and didn’t feel heavy on. It seemed thinner than the typical Amplified. It wore well for five hours on me and was lightly hydrating. Besame American Beauty 1945 (P, $22.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Stunner (LE, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar).
