MAC Baking Beauty Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm
MAC Baking Beauty Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm

MAC Baking Beauty Mineralize Tinted Lip Balm ($19.50 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “creamy light peach.” It looks like a yellowed tangerine in the tube, but applied, it takes on a lighter, peachier coloring with subtle pink shimmer. It is similar to shades like NARS Buenos Aires, MAC Kiss Me Softly, and MAC Poetic License.

This formula is supposed to “[add] moisture while providing the right pop of color and mirror-like shine.” It has a thicker consistency (somewhere between Lipglass and Lustreglass), a slight tackiness, which gets tackier the longer you wear it, and is slightly hydrating but doesn’t replace other standalone lip balms I’ve used. Baking Beauty has semi-sheer color payoff, though it generally translates to more of a nude-ish shade on my lips, you can see how much “covers” my lip freckle to get a better grasp on the coverage. It only wore two hours on me, which was shorter than I’ve experienced with the original release of shades

B-
It isn't as hydrating as other lip balms I've tried, and it wears away really quickly, so it needs to be frequently reapplied.
