MAC What Comes Naturally & Half-Red Lip Pencils

MAC What Comes Naturally Lip Pencil ($16.50 for 0.05 oz.) is desdcribed as a “light nude.” It’s a light, warm-toned peachy-beige with a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage, and the consistency was somewhat creamy but will tug and pull at the lip during application. This particular color seemed to catch on my lips easily, even though I tried swatching it a few times after exfoliating, but I could never get it to look smooth. It’s drying when worn on its own, and it tends to pull and look cracked after a few hours of wear (but it lasts for about six hours). It is better used underneath a more hydrating lipstick or lipgloss. This shade is a repromote. MAC Saunter (LE, $19.50) is slightly less peach, more pink. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

MAC Playland Chromagraphic Pencils

The MAC Playland Collection features four shades of MAC Chromagraphic Pencils ($16.00 for 0.04 oz.). This formula is permanent at PRO stores, and all shades have existed for awhile now. I have reviewed the formula a few times in the past, so this is a quickie review to include updated swatches, add dupes, and individual ratings. I’m a big fan of the Chromagraphic Pencil formula, because it’s very creamy, intensely pigmented, and long-wearing, but there are some shades that can’t be used on the water line and/or eye area, as well as some shades aren’t to be used on the lip area (all warnings are below).
