MAC Illustrated Pink Lip Bag

MAC Illustrated Pink Lip Bag ($39.50) contains a full-sized Lipstick, Lipglass, and Lip Pencil, plus a medium-sized makeup bag. The value of the color products is $45, while the bag is very similar in size and material to the recently released Illustrated bags that retailed for $36, so the total (maximum) value is $81.  The gloss merely lightens Girl About Town, but it’s very subtle, so I don’t know if it’s really the best pairing, especially as the thickness of Picture Pink gives the finished look a very thick, almost goopy, finish.

The value of the color products is $45, while the bag is very similar in size and material to the recently released Illustrated bags that retailed for $36, so the total (maximum) value is $81.  This set was actually quite interesting, because the lipstick and lipgloss aren’t similar in color, so they can be mixed in varying degrees to get several different variations on a warmer coral.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil (The Bolds)

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencils ($19.00 for 0.04 oz. each) has been revamped, reformulated, and relaunched with sixteen shades. This post is featuring the brighter and bolder shades. The revamped Urban Decay lip pencil formula is creamy and glides on easily; it doesn’t pull, tug, or drag across the lips. Lip liners are one of my least favorite products to swatch on lips, because they can be really rough across the lips and doing more than one or two of them back-to-back is usually a recipe for sore lips later on. I had no trouble applying nine of these back-to-back, and that’s primarily because they really do glide across the lips and feel waxy, but they still deposit good color payoff as they move across the lips. On their own, they wear like iron and last anywhere from four to eight hours. Underneath a lipstick, they add two to three hours of wear, bringing total wear time of a shade like Bang lipstick (over Bang Lip Pencil) to eight hours of good wear to eight hours of really good wear and another two of lingering wear before reapplication was necessary.

MAC Silly Lip Pencil

MAC Silly Lip Pencil ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “bright pink.” It’s a medium, brightened pink with subtle cool undertones and a totally matte finish. The closest dupe I could think of was MAC Hip ‘n’ Happy, which isn’t as bright and has a much cooler undertone.
