MAC Booyah!!! Pro Longwear Lipcreme
MAC Booyah!!! Pro Longwear Lipcreme

MAC & Beth Ditto: Pro Longwear Lipcremes

There are five new (and limited edition) shades of MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme ($17.00 for 0.12 oz.) featured in the Beth Ditto collection. These include: Booyah!!! (bright orange), Dear Diary (bright neon pink), Heart Hangover (deep purple), Love Long Distance (light mauve), and You’re Perfect Already (neutral pale pink).

  • Booyah!!! is a medium-dark orange with some brightness but it doesn’t turn neon. It’s opaque and has a creamy finish. I thought it was a darker orange, but it’s actually not so! MAC Sail la Vie and MAC Scarlet Ibis are darker and redder. MAC Morange and MAC Neon Orange are very, very similar, but they’re both a little brighter. MAC Good to Go is slightly darker. Illamasqua Flare is brighter and matte. Clarins Clementine is warmer.
  • Dear Diary is a vibrant fuchsia magenta pink. It’s opaque and has a creamy finish. MAC Candy Yum Yum is slightly cooler-toned and has more of a matte finish, but it’s very, very close–I think there’s a less neon quality with Dear Diary. MAC Pink Pigeon is a little pinker, not as neon. MAC Show Orchid is darker and pinker. MAC Quick Sizzle is much pinker. NARS Schiap is pinker.
  • Heart Hangover is a brown burgundy. It applies opaque, but I found the consistency of this one surprisingly dry–this formula tends to be creamy, but this pulled and tugged a bit. MAC Soulfully Rich is much darker. MAC Prince Noir is also much darker. Dolce & Gabbana Amethyst is redder. Milani Black Cherry is redder and sheerer. MAC Media is redder. MAC Hang Up is a bit redder.
  • Love Long Distance is a semi-opaque pale, cool-toned pink with white frost. This has a really frosted, metallic-like finish. This was the thirteenth product I swatched, and it was less forgiving on my lips compared to the other shades. Revlon Cupcake is similar in color but has a glossier, less frosted finish. NYX Rose shares the same finish, but it’s warmer and pinker. MAC Behave Yourself is also a bit similar.
  • You’re Perfect Already is a pinky beige with a little hint of peach. It’s opaque and has a creamy finish. On my lips, the peachy tones disappeared for the most part, since there are a few natural pink tones to my lips. MAC Angel is yellower and darker. MAC Playing Koi is peachier. MAC Overtime is yellower. MAC So Sweet, So Easy is pinker.

I think this is a pretty good lipstick formula, but MAC claims it wears for up to twelve hours, and this has always been where I’ve had problems–I get between six and eight hours of wear with most shades I’ve tested.  The Pro Longwear Lipcreme formula is supposed to be lightweight, creamy, comfortable, non-feathering, non-transferring, and moisturizing.  Such a tall order!  All but Heart Hangover were very creamy, and they glided on easily and provided even color without any real effort. Because of the slip and creaminess, they do feel comfortable once applied, though I don’t think I’d say they’re really lightweight. They don’t feel heavy or thick, but I do feel them on my lips.

They have a satin/semi-matte finish–it begins with more of a satiny sheen, but it wears off after the first couple of hours of wear. These are most definitely not transfer-proof. I’ve done kiss-tests in the past, and it certainly leaves behind product on my coffee cup. It’s less prone to transfer compared to the average lipstick, but it does have some transfer. I don’t have feathering problems with the product, but the circular shape of the lipstick itself can make precision application more difficult, especially if you have smaller lips. I always find it turns out a bit wonky around my cupid’s bow if I don’t pay attention.

These are vanilla-scented, but I haven’t detected any taste.  Of this set, I tested out the wear of Dear Diary and Love Long Distance, which wore eight and six hours respectively–true-to-form for these lipsticks.  Darker shades tend to last around eight hours, while lighter shades last around six hours.  My lips always feel normal after wearing one of these for six to eight hours; not dehydrated, not ultra-hydrated.

P.S. — I really loved the sentiment behind You’re Perfect Already. Why hasn’t there been an empowerment collection by MAC? I’d love to see that. Talk about positive, uplifting, and always nice to see.

B+
This lipstick is a good formula with the exception of the wear time not making it to twelve hours--it lasts awhile, and it outlasts regular lipsticks by nearly double. The colors are generally opaque, have a creamy consistency, and apply evenly.

  1. dear diary looks so pretty!  and you’re right!  MAC should definitely put out an empowerment collection to remind people just how beautiful they are sans the makeup

  2. Avatar of Mirian Vermeulen MIRIANV

    heart hangover!!!

  3. I love the two bright shades, they look hot! I also really love the finish on these. The 12 hour claim is a bit ridiculous, but if they wear longer than the average lipstick, it’s already impressive for me!

  4. Love Long Distance is so pretty! Must have it now!

  5. Avatar of Dee GUSnail

    Love Booyah!  Not sure I will wear it often enough to justify the purchase :(  Maybe I’ll go try it…just to see how it looks…  yeah, uh huh, promise, just to see…

    How close is Heart Hangover to MAC Approaching Storm?

  7. by

    I LOVE the colors and the range. I like the You’re Perfect Already name as well. I find Booyah!!! a nice name too. :)
    (Ignore me if I’m wrong but did you mean to say peach instead of beach in you’re perfect already description?)

  8. I really like Love Long Distance and You’re Perfect Already. I might have to pick these up! :)

  9. Avatar of Inky InkyWine

    I really like the Pro Longwear Lipcremes.  Ordered Dear Diary this morning ;)

    Love Heart Hangover!! Whats the difference between that and Musky Amethyst?

  11. Avatar of Cat Cat G

    An Empowerment collection would be amazing!!! Such a great idea!

  12. Avatar of Magdalena 3rdhalo

    i love how retro glamourous is the heart hangover

  13. Avatar of Amy xamyx

    Heart Hangover is really pretty. The fact you find it dry may actually be a good thing for me. Normally, I find MAC lipstick to feel kind of like a dry oil on my lips, but I haven’t tried this formula, either. Maybe…

  14. marlindaw

    I’m wondering; how does Booyah & Givenchy Candide Tangerine Lipstick compare?
    Thanks

  15. amandacooleman_1

    I need Booyah!!!

  16. moodent

    christine, how does youre perfect already compare to hue and innocence beware? thanks!

  17. I LOVE you’re perfect already! x

  18. Avatar of Lacey Lacey J.

    I love love long distance… but i think I will just pick up revlon cupcake lip butter to get a similar less frosted effect. It might look amazing in the swatch but the amount of frost might look bad on my lips.

  19. JessyLorenzo

    thanks for ur reviews really like it i just have a question are u using a lip pensil for the lighter shades ? im dark skin medium brown i€m looking for a nice matte bronzer no shimmer like nars laguna but it has too much shimmer please help thank you 

  20. Nathalie Munoz

    You are so thorough with your reviews. I love it. Thank you!

  21. When does this collection come out in stores??

  22. espe

    i just picked up dear diary at my mac pro store.  i love it!  i can’t stop looking at it!  i think i may go back for a back up!

  23. ceci

    hi! excuse me, which eye shadow are you using in these photos? it looks like so cool with the blue line under the eyes! thank you very much! you’re great!!!! :) 

  24. Avatar of Patricia Patricia Couto

    I loved Dear Diary, but I already have all the shades that are similar (loooove pinks). Do you think it is a wast of money to buy it, Christine? I can’t go into the store to try…
    Thank you.

  25. ctheno

    I love how well your blue/purple eyeliner complements each of these lipsticks. I love my navy liner, and because of this post, I now I know that I can pair it with just about any of my lip colors. :)

    How does love long distance compare to pink popcorn

  27. myesha2003

    Does love long distance resemble pink popcorn?

  28. misscheriamor

    The bright orange and pink are beautiful… the rest are terrible. MAC is bumming me out lately.

  29. Avatar of Veronica Veronica

    I think I might have to temporarily break my Project Pan hiatus to get Dear Diary.  I’ve been looking for a magenta close to Candy Yum Yum, and I think this is pretty darn close. :)  Heart Hangover is also gorgeous, but I think I have a few shades close enough to pass it up.
     
    I suspect I know why MAC and most beauty companies have never done empowerment campaigns, but it’s a pretty cynical reasoning.

  30. These colours bore me.. Which is great for my wallet, but I want Mac to get me excited about some make up soon cause it’s been a while! As always, thanks for the great review Christine! x

  31. Avatar of artemis artemis

    i like the colors :D i would love to have the pale pink :D

  32. Michelle23

    Love your blog…. I ordered Dear Diary this morning and used DITTO in the promo code for free shipping :) thanks for the review I can’t wait to get it in the mail.

  33. corallista

    I love the Pro longwear lipcreme formula, it lasts really well!

  34. Heart Hangover and You’re Perfect Already look divine, can’t wait till their release in the middle east! thankyou christine xx

  35. Pinky

    Would you rather candy yum yum or dear diary? I dislike the round shape of dear diary. Looks hard to apply… :-( I want candy yum yum… I love matte lipsticks… Do you think dear diary would fill this gap? 

    • Though MAC hasn’t confirmed whether Candy Yum Yum garnered enough votes, it did seem like it was one of top contenders, so maybe you’d want to hold out for that–especially since you prefer matte lipsticks.

  36. Iragirl

    Hi christine, I love the color on your cheeks in the pictures… What blush are you wearing?;)

  37. Caty

    Can’t wait for Booyah!, Dear Diary, and Love Long Distance. LLD looks to me like a more pigmented Pervette, which is oddly enough one of my favorite lipsticks to wear with a cool-toned smokey eye. I never thought I would like a lipstick like Pervette,but I loves it. 

  38. Tahlia

    When you rub your lips together, does the formula tend to move? They look quite creamy..

  39. Avatar of Jess TMBJessxox

    How does dear diary compare to candy yum yum?

  40. Hey Christine! I was wondering, how does Dear Diary compare to Pro Longwear lipcreme Love Forever? And Heart Hangover to Endless Drama? The Beth Ditto will only come out online in Denmark, so I can’t swatch it myself in store. Thank you so much for a fantastic blog and for the help!! :D

  41. Emme

    Christine, does You’re Perfect Already compare to Creme Cup at all?

  42. Avatar of Abigail AbigailOD

    Hi Christine,
    I picked Booyah!!! and Dear Diary and love both colors! Do you ever notice this formula being “tacky” after an hour or so? And when I meant with tacky as in, when you press your lips together, they kind of stick, but not in a gooey way. And this is where I notice the sheen is gone and color has set in.  I did read your in-depth overall review of the Pro Longwear Lipcremes back in Sept 2010 and Natalie’s comment below caught my attention:
     
    I quote:  “Natalie
    I just returned from MAC and picked up perpetual flame among a couple of other things. I have to say it looks amazing on darker complexions just as you suggested Christine :]. The formulation does feel a bit tacky on the lips while it is drying but after that it really does stay. I’ve had a couple bottles of water and chinese for lunch. – And I’m happy to stay my lipsticks still intact ^.^.”
     
    Any thoughts why? And how to fix or avoid this? At first I liked it because it reminded me of how the MAC lip prep+prime applies and feels but then it started to bother me. It started feeling a bit “heavy” almost because it’s “tacky”. I really hope I’m making sense. Please shed some light! =)  Thanks in advance!

    •  @AbigailOD Hmm, I have not noticed any tacky feel, though it is a very creamy formula so it’s something I can definitely feel when on!

      • Avatar of Abigail AbigailOD

         @Christine (Temptalia) Thanks Christine! I notice it more after a drink when lips got wet/damp and I just reapply. I’m really hoping it’s just me, because I am eyeing Love Forever, eventhough I already have Dear Diary! Oh no… =/

  43. Zeenatrising

    Hi Christine,

    I love your blog and always consult it before I purchase make up!!

    Do you think Nars Schiap is different enough from Dear Diary? I’m trying to see if I can justify owning both.

    Thanks so much!! Best wishes!

  44. Lady_buksh

    This chick has straight up copied your review word for word for Dear Diary. Pathetic. http://dynopupbeauty.blogspot.ca/2012/06/mac-pro-longwear-lipcreme-in-dear-diary.html

    •  @Lady_buksh Thank you! Looks like she already removed it!

      • Lady_buksh

         @Christine (Temptalia)
         Hey Christine, I feel like some of her other MAC reviews are taken from yours too like descriptions for Heavenly Creatures and Hey Sailor items, possibly more I haven’t been a follower of her blog.  It just so happened I saw her review a day after yours for Dear Diary and am simply disgusted with her stealth.

  45. MakeupANNimal

    @njsurvivor @temptalia That might be, but idk!
