MAC Sounds Like Noise Lipstick

MAC Sounds Like Noise Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “bright true orange matte.” It’s a brightened warm-toned orange with a smidgen of red in the undertone and a satiny finish (it doesn’t read entirely matte). That lack of red is actually what makes it stand out against a lot of other orange shades (like MAC Morange and MAC Neon Orange, which both appear darker and redder). OCC Banjee is lighter, yellower. I was surprised to find that none of the orange lipsticks in the gallery came close.

Sounds like Noise is an online-exclusive from the MAC x Hayley Williams collaboration, which is supposed to launch on April 9th (but hardcore fans may want to start stalking a little earlier).  It has opaque color coverage, and it had a nice creaminess to it that fell somewhere between satin and amplified (in terms of finish); definitely creamier than the average matte finish by MAC.  I have it on now, and we’re almost at four hours of wear, and it’s still going (I’m guessing five to six hours in total), and it’s slightly hydrating thus far (will update in the next couple of hours!).
