Oh My, Passion!

MAC Oh My, Passion! Pearlmatte Face Powder ($33.00 for 0.28 oz.) is comprised of a soft yellow, reddish-brown, pink-coral, and pinky lavender that swirl together and create a subdued pinky-peach with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It could look pinker or more muted depending on how much of the pink/lavender compared to brown was picked up.

The Pearlmatte Face Powder is supposed to be a combination of a highlighter and blush with “excellent colour payoff” and a “rich and creamy texture.” They vary a lot in price and size, as they are a limited edition formula and often feature embossing/special designs. The consistency was incredibly smooth and soft in the pan with a touch of powderiness, but luckily, that powderiness didn’t translate to the skin. Instead, the more I buffed and blended out the color, the more luminous the finish became–glowing but not overtly shimmery and never emphasized my skin’s natural texture. It had good pigmentation, which was buildable to opaque coverage if desired. The blush wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

This collection launches on May 18th.

Lust

MAC Lust Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coral with warm, brown undertones and a cream finish. I almost wanted to describe it as a peachy brown, but there was a rosiness to it the color that it truer to a coral to my eye. It had nearly opaque pigmentation, and it applied fairly evenly, though there was a bit of color that had pulled into my lip lines. The consistency was smooth, light-to-medium in weight, and noticeably tacky, though it did not feel overly thick or goopy to me. This shade wore well for four and a half hours and was moisturizing over time.

The Lipglass formula is supposed to be “pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic color” that can be worn “on its own, over lip pencil or lipstick” and will “condition lips.” MAC could use an update on the description as some shades are more pigmented than others but several are sheerer and likely intended to be that way. The formula has a very glossy, high-shine finish with a light-medium weight and moderate tackiness. I find that newer Lipglasses (over the last couple of years) are smoother and not quite as tacky as the formula was many years ago. They wear from three to six hours on me and are usually lightly hydrating. MAC recently updated the shade range and packaging for the range (though the formula was said to be unchanged), so worth noting is that with that packaging change came a reduction in quantity to 0.10 fl. oz. (was 0.17 fl. oz.), which may matter for some but not everyone.

Spite

MAC Spite Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium taupe brown with rosy undertones and fine pearl. It had nearly opaque color coverage that applied evnely with just a smidgen of color that was visible in my deeper lip lines. The consistency was almost so smooth that it was creamy, but it was slightly thicker than your average gloss and moderately tacky. It wore well for five and a half hours on me and was lightly hydrating.

Obviously Bare

MAC Obviously Bare Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a muted, light-medium brown with warm undertones and fine, white pearl. It appeared lighter applied than swatched for me, and it had a milkier quality to the look of it so that some of the color gathered into my lip lines as milky glosses often do. It was very smooth in feel, and it spread easily across the lips, but it just lacked the evenness that would make it standout. This sahde wore well for four and a half hours on me.

The Lipglass formula is supposed to be “pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic color” that can be worn “on its own, over lip pencil or lipstick” and will “condition lips.” MAC could use an update on the description as some shades are more pigmented than others but several are sheerer and likely intended to be that way.

Morange

MAC Morange Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium orange with warm, reddish undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied without streaking, but there was a creaminess to the finish where some color spread into my lip lines. The finish was incredibly glossy, though, and the gloss stayed on well for five and a half hours while being hydrating.

Wrapped Candy

MAC Wrapped Candy Extra Dimension Blush ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is rich, medium-dark berry with subtle, cool undertones and cooler, violet and pink pearl. It was richly pigmented, and a little went a long way, but the soft, blendable consistency made it easier to control and work with on the cheeks–essential characteristics for something darker and pigmented. As I blended out the powder, it became more luminous and the cooler shimmer made it read cooler than it looked in the pan. The blush started to fade after ten hours of wear.

The Extra Dimension Blush formula is supposed to have “long-wearing colour with prismatic reflections” that wears for “10 hours.” The formula is typically very pigmented with a soft, smooth texture that’s firmer in the pan but not difficult to use–I had no issues grabbing color with even my softest brushes–and has no dustiness or powderiness in the pan. The blushes are usually blendable with a luminous glow on the cheeks that did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. With MAC’s newly-added permanent shades, the wear time has ranged from eight to ten hours.
