MAC Cranberry Lip Pencil
MAC Cranberry Lip Pencil ($16.50 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “soft yellow pink.” It’s a medium-dark, warm-toned pink with a matte finish. Urban Decay Rush (P, $19.00) is more muted. Urban Decay Manic (P, $19.00) is a touch lighter, warmer. MAC In Anticipation (P, $19.50) is pinker. MAC Pink Treat (P, $15.00) is slightly darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
It had really good color payoff in a single pass, and it applied evenly to the lips–a lot of lip pencils do not look as even on their own as Cranberry does. It has a totally matte finish, so it gives lips a slightly drier look, but the pencil itself didn’t feel too clingy or drying. It’s not a particularly comfortable formula to wear by itself, but it is helps prolong the wear when worn underneath a shorter-wearing lipstick that is more hydrating. On its own, it wears six hours and is somewhat drying. I believe this shade was once permanent but then discontinued, and now it is set to be re-released with MAC x Sharon Osbourne.
