There are four shades of MAC Lipsticks ($14.50 for 0.10 oz.) being released with Stylishly Yours. Two are new: Something New (creamy bright blue pink) and Style Curve (bright clean violet purple); and two are permanent products: Cockney (sheer yellow red with multidimensional pearl) and Neon Orange (bright clean orange, PRO only).
All of the lipsticks were as expected, based on their finish, with Cockney being surprisingly pigmented (well, not really surprisingly, since we’ve swatched it here before!). I really do think that MAC could have made Style Curve a really fun, bright and opaque shade had they gone with an amplified formula (like they did with Neon Orange and Something New). It did have a glossier finish than other cremesheens, though, which was nice.
Cockney and Neon Orange best suit warm-toned skin, as they both have orange undertones, while Something New and Style Curve best suit cool-toned skin, as they have bluer-bases. While Neon Orange will be the most difficult for cooler skin tones to pull off, warmer skin tones should still find both Something New and Style Curve easy enough to wear as neither is too strongly blue in its base.
MAC Stylishly Yours Collection is a limited edition launch (official information and photos here) that is set to launch in-stores on December 26th in North America, January 2011 for international MAC locations. The approximate launch date for online is December 24th.
