Blue Bang

MAC Blue Bang Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium blue with cool undertones and a satin sheen. There seemed to be fine pearl, but it wasn’t overly shimmery, just a noticeable sheen overall. The consistency was smooth, creamy without being too slick or emollient, and it applied without tugging. It had nearly opaque color coverage that went on evenly, but I did have some color that pulled into lip lines a touch. If you have deeper lines like me, a lip primer might be useful with this particular shade. On me, the color wore well for five and a half hours, left a bluish-purple stain, and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Uncontrollable

MAC Uncontrollable Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium orange with subtle, warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that didn’t tug on the lips when applied directly from the tube. There was a bit of color that pulled into my lip lines over time, though it wasn’t too noticeable. On me, the lipstick wore well for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Flourish Me Deep

MAC Flourish Me Deep Kajal Crayon ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a deep black with neutral-to-warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. The Kajal Crayon formula is designed to “be applied in the waterline for bold, saturated colour in one easy swipe” with long-wear. It had good color coverage in one stroke, and it was fully opaque with just a touch more. The consistency was smooth without being wet or waxy, yet it felt soft and smooth enough against the waterline that it was comfortable to apply while still getting good coverage. It wore well for eight and a half hours on my waterline and ten hours on my lower lash line.

Fallen Angel

MAC Fallen Angel Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour ($21.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a deep berry with cool undertones and a matte finish. I wish it performed better, as the color was gorgeous, but it was semi-opaque and applied unevenly. It was thin, watery, and harder to control as the color spread too easily. The color lasted for six hours, stained, and was moderately drying over time–but it seemed shorter-wearing than most of the Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolours for me.

Almondine

MAC Almondine Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a soft, medium pink with warm undertones and a fine, golden sheen. It has a Lustre finish, which is a sheerer coverage formula with a stronger sheen. It had a soft, lightly emollient consistency that glided across the lips easily, and it only had minimal settling in my lip lines. The lipstick had semi-sheer coverage that went on evenly–the resulting effect was warmer, pinker natural lip color with shimmer and shine–that lasted for two and a half hours.

Glamourize Me

MAC Glamourize Me Cream Colour Shadow Palette ($40.00 for 0.21 oz.) features six Cream Colour Shadows. The formula is supposed to have “medium, buildable colour” that is long-wearing, water-resistant, and non-drying. They felt a lot like the Cream Colour Base formula to me: soft, very emollient, and almost “greasy” in a way. They go on thin and have a slight tackiness, and they are hard to build-up or use more than one or two shades at a time, as they look uneven and patchy with more than that. The wear ranged from a few hours to six hours, but a couple of shades creased soon after applying but did not worsen for a few hours later (think of it as “initial creasing” because they don’t really dry down). I think the formula is most suited used all over the lid as a wash or as a lightly tacky, wet base for powder eyeshadows.
