Lipsticks: Total Wow!, Madly Creative, Utter Fun, Surprise Me
MAC Magic, Mirth, & Mischief Review: Lipsticks
Four shades of lipsticks debuted with MAC’s holiday color collection, with one being permanent (Pervette). Personally, I was really hoping to see another amazing holiday red from MAC this season, but I wasn’t so lucky. (Note: again, I hope to have lip swatches up tomorrow or over the weekend.)
- Total Wow! is a semi-opaque berried-pink with gold shimmer. It reminded me of Stark Naked blush, actually, but (obviously) in lipstick form.
- Utter Fun is a blue-based deep pink. It looks awfully red in the tube, but it swatched completely pink on my arm. I imagine if you have a lot of natural redness to your lip color, this will turn out a bit more red than pink on you, though. It’s creamy and mostly opaque, so those are pluses.
- Surprise Me is a peachy-brown neutral with soft golden shimmer and a slight sheen. It’s an interesting color, but it doesn’t wow me. It doesn’t really say holiday to me, either.
Even though none of the shades really blew me away, I did really like the idea of a Stark Naked blush-turned-lip color, so Total Wow! is a must on my list.
Edited: Sorry about the mix-up… when I was in-store, the artist told me Madly Creative and it didn’t occur to me to double-check! I think I have Pervette in my stash, so I’ll swatch that when I do lip swatches.
