MAC RiRi Boy Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “matte vivid lavender” with a “Retro Matte” finish. It is a medium-dark, pink-purple with a matte finish. MAC Heroine is darker, purpler. MAC Seasoned Plum is darker, less pink. MAC Up the Amp is glossier, so it appears a bit lighter, less intense when the two are swatched side-by-side, but applied, I couldn’t tell the difference aside from the finish. See comparison swatches.

The consistency was creamier than is typical of the Retro Matte formula, but it is drier and a little stiffer to work with than the matte formula (or any of the other finishes). It had full, opaque color coverage. The way it felt when I swatched seemed in line with RiRi Woo, which means it shouldn’t be drying (but not hydrating, either) and will wear for at least four hours (probably closer to six or so). I’ll be testing this one for wear later today, and I will update tomorrow with how well it holds up.

The RiRi Hearts MAC summer collection will launch June 18th at noon EST exclusively online for North America; June 20th exclusively online for international.
