MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme (Part 1)

MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme: Part 1

Once I’ve been able to test out the wear of these a bit longer, I will post an overall/recap post to talk more about how these feel, wear, etc. (as well as give you a product rating).  So far, I’m on hour three!  I’m splitting these up into two posts, to help cut down on loading time and demand on the server.  Plus, it means you can read this post while I write up color descriptions and put together part 2! 🙂

  • Extended Play is a deepened red with a subtle blue base. It has a subtle ruby micro-shimmer, so it looks and reminds me of a holiday red. It does seem reminiscent of Queen’s Sin but glossier, not as frosty. This is a cream finish.
  • Faithfully Yours is a plummy wine with neutral-cool undertones. It seems a bit like Amorous but darker, a little cooler. This is a cream finish.
  • Goes and Goes is a brightened red-toned purple. This one reminded me of Up the Amp (I have no idea why I do not have a swatch of this lipstick up–must remedy that at some point), significantly less fuchsia/bright in comparison to Violetta. This is a cream finish.
  • Good to Go is a vibrant neon orange. It reminded me of Neon Orange–it’s hard to tell the difference between the two; Good to Go seems a little lighter but just as bright. Morange is also similar, but I would say it’s a touch lighter. All three are fairly similar, so unless you dig bright orange, you don’t need ’em all. This is a cream finish.
  • Love Forever! is a cool-toned darkened fuchsia pink. It’s a little darker than Pink Nouveau, but they seem quite similar. This is a cream finish.
  • Made to Last is a plum-touched brown with subtle micro-shimmer. Though I don’t have them to compare directly, it seems similar to Retro (but darker) and Del Rio (but seems darker). This is a frost finish.

The Sultry Season: MAC Dark Side Lipstick

MAC Dark Side Lipstick ($14.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep cool-toned burgundy-tinged red with an amplified creme finish.  It’s completely opaque with a very creamy texture.  I love the way it applies–even, smooth–and it wears so well.  I usually get three to four hours with a lot of MAC lipsticks, but with such an intense, opaque shade, I can easily get four to five, and a subtle stain will remain for another hour as it fades away.

Is this the right red for you? Would you wear it?

The Sultry Season is a series of posts featuring deep, rich shades of brown, berry, plum, and wine lipsticks and lipglosses — just right for autumn — that runs through October 2010.

The Sultry Season: MAC Smoked Purple Lipstick

MAC Smoked Purple Lipstick ($14.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep, dark reddened purple.  It’s not exactly the purple you first think of, but I find myself always gravitating back to using the word purple to describe the color.  It’s incredibly dark, certainly vampy, and it packs quite a bit of color.  It is a little on the dry side, though nothing overwhelmingly dry (a la Ruby Woo), so do take care and prep lips by exfoliating them prior to application.
