Red-Hot Times Nine

MAC Red-Hot Times Nine Eyeshadow Palette ($32.00 for 0.18 oz.) includes nine, dime-sized eyeshadows. For the types of colors and finishes included in the palette, it was actually not bad. I’d definitely suggest using this with a primer to improve blendability and pigmentation across the palette, though.

Betty Boop Red

MAC Betty Boop Red Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium red with cool undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips. The consistency was smooth, lightly creamy but not too emollient, and comfortable to wear. Though it was listed as a matte finish on the packaging, it did not read matte on me until after an hour and a half of wear. The color wore well for over six hours, left a stain behind, and was neither drying nor hydrating.

This lipstick launches online today (2/14).

Gritty Girl

MAC Gritty Girl Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is muted, medium brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a creamy, thicker texture that seemed to emphasize the texture of my lips slightly. The color went on evenly and adhered well to my lips, so the color managed to last for a solid five hours despite being a lighter shade. It was slightly drying over time, though.

High Drama

MAC High Drama Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour ($21.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a deep berry with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied somewhat evenly. As it dried down, the color didn’t self-level so there were some visible streaks. The formula had a more watery consistency, which made it harder to apply and control along the edges of the lips, and the color seemed to sink into some lip lines. This shade lasted for six and a half hours before starting to fade on me, and the formula was somewhat drying.

The Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour formula is supposed to be pigmented, last eight hours, and be “non-feathering.” They are typically pigmented and long-wearing, but the quality of the formula is all over the place–some shades wear down evenly, aren’t too drying, and apply well, while other shades are patchy, streaky, or prone to flaking (and also terribly drying!).

Into the Madness

MAC Into the Madness Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, light-medium chartreuse green with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage (almost to full coverage) that applied evenly. The consistency was lightly creamy, not too thick or too thin, and was comfortable to wear, though I had some color pull into lip lines over time. This shade wore well for four and a half hours and gave my lips a slightly peachy stain, and the formula was neither drying nor hydrating.

Enhance Me

MAC Enhance Me Casual Colour Lip & Cheek Colour x 6 Palette ($40.00 for 0.21 oz.) consists of six cream-based shades that can be used on lips or cheeks. The Casual Colour formula is supposed to be a cheek and lip color with a “dewy” glow that’s blendable and hydrating. In general, I like the Casual Colour as a cream blush–pigmented, blendable, long-wearing–but it falls flat as a lip color, as there’s an almost powder-like feel once they’re on that makes the formula feel clingy and slightly drying over time. The best way (that I’ve found) to use them as a lip color is to apply them lightly on the lips and topped with a balm or sheer gloss as more of a subtle lip stain.
