MAC Pro Longwear Lipcremes

MAC Styledriven: Pro Longwear Lipcremes (Part 1)

MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme ($17.00 for 0.12 oz.) are a long-wearing lipstick with a “lightweight texture, creamy finish, and comfortable long-wear.” It claims to wear for up to twelve hours without feathering or transferring–and “helps lips stay soft and hydrated.” This formula originally debuted last year and again with Styledriven. You can read my in-depth review here, as I’m only going to summarize the finer points in this post. All shades from this collection are permanent.

The shades featured in this post are: Dress It Up (light blue-pink), Endless Drama (deep berry blue-red), Extended Play (dirty red, yellow undertone), Good to Go (loudmouth orange), Love Forever (bright blue-pink), and Positively Dashing (mid-tone berry blue-red).

I don’t get close to twelve hours of wear with this lipstick; I get great wear and substantially longer wear than the average lipstick, but it’s not twelve hours. The darker shades–of course–wear longer and look better after seven or eight hours than lighter shades, but both do a solid job of managing to wear for six to eight hours and getting through eating/drinking. This is the major source of lost points for this product, because MAC claims up to twelve and in reality, I get up to eight (on average) before I feel it’s time to reapply.

The formula delivers most opaque color coverage with a creamy, glide-on formula that doesn’t feel too slick but never stiff or dry. Most shades have a semi-matte finish, so there is a little shine. These are vanilla-scented but have no detectable taste. Instead of your typical MAC lipstick, they’re more circular, which may take some adjustments in application; if you have thinner lips, it may be a little frustrating.

I wouldn’t say it’s ultra moisturizing, but after wearing one for eight hours, my lips feel about par for the course; not dried out but would appreciate some lip balm. I didn’t experience any feathering or bleeding lip color, but they are not transfer-resistant (I did the kiss test, no dice). There is less transfer than the average lipstick but still a fair amount.

B+
For a semi-matte lipstick, Pro Longwear Lipcremes are comfortable to wear without being drying, and while they don't make it to twelve hours, they do wear for anywhere from six to eight hours (including time spent eating/drinking).

    Yayyy you’re reviewing the collection. I hadn’t seen it on the website and I was wondering if you were or not. Thank you for your hard work :). I’m loving Positively Dashing.

  7. Loved Dashing! Good to go looks great on you with the hint of green on the eyes! Extended Play and Endless drama would make gorgeous fall colors!

  8. hannah

    hey christine! how does dress it up compare with mac overtime?

  9. Chelle

    Dress It Up and Love Forever are my favorites out of this bunch.

  10. Natalie

    I use a lip brush to apply this product. Due to its odd shape, applying it straight out of the tube is annoying.

  17. Leslie

    I looooove Dress It Up and have been wanting Love Forever well…forever! I’m really excited to see the lipglosses from this line. I rarely wear gloss anymore because I just end up smearing it off as soon as I take a sip of water. =/

  18. since these are permanent, are we allowed to B2M for these? tks!

  22. Sílvia

    Hello! Do you know how Endless Drama compares to MAC DIVA matte lipstick in color?

  23. Pamela M

    Dress it up reminds me of Angel lipstick! Dress it up seems to have more of a blue tone though.

  24. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Zöe Zoe

  25. Violet

    Endless Drama should be mine. For the colour and name.

  26. Frannie
