Dearly Beloved

MAC Dearly Beloved Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good color coverage with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that glided across the lips without tugging. The lipstick wore well for five hours, was neither drying nor hydrating, and comfortable to wear.

This shade will be available on February 9th online and in select stores.

MAC Viva Glam Taraiji P. Henson Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage with a slightly firmer consistency in the tube. The texture was smooth, cream-like but did tug on the lips just a tad (not uncomfortably, though). On me, the color lasted for six hours, left a stain behind, and was non-drying.

This shade will be available on February 2nd.

Warm Mattes (10)

Viseart Warm Mattes (10) Eyeshadow Palette ($80.00 for 0.84 oz.) is an unabashedly warm-toned palette filled with a mix of beige, brown, orange, and red. There are a lot of yellow and orange-based shades here. The palette worked well on its own, but it was easy to incorporate with other Viseart palettes as well. Overall, the quality was consistent with my past experience with Viseart’s matte formula–pigmented, long-wearing, and blendable.

Makeup Geek Tomboy Plush Lip Matte ($12.00 for 0.06 fl. oz.) is a muted, purpled plum with warmer undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was fantastic, and the lipstick had a smooth, creamy texture that applied beautifully to the lips. This was one of the few shades that actually looked flattering on as it did not appear “cracked” when I smiled. It spread easily across the lips, and while it felt comfortable on, the formula itself still seemed drying, as my lips felt raw after wearing it. This shade wore well for five hours and did leave a stain behind.

The formula is supposed to be a “cross between a cream and a mousse” that is “highly pigmented” with a “soft matte” finish. The consistency has an incredibly velvety, creamy feel without being slippery or wet, so it felt very smooth going on the lips and lightweight. I liked the way it felt on the lips for an hour or so of wear, but after testing about half of the range, they did not wear down well with an uneven fade and significant color in lip lines. While traditional liquid lipstick can dry and look “cracked,” I noticed that despite feeling quite forgiving, the finish often was not as lip color settled into and separated away from lip lines. The formula wasn’t designed to dry down to a flat, matte finish, and it does not, so the transfer was similar to that of a traditional, satin-finished tube lipstick for me. On me, the liquid lipsticks have lasted between four and six hours on me. They seem mostly non-drying on but seemed more drying as I wore them, particularly if I wore two in a row, which would leave my lips feeling raw. Just a heads up, each tube contains a surprisingly small amount of product (0.06 fl. oz.) relative to a lot of popular liquid lipstick formulas (Kat Von D contains 0.22 fl. oz., Anastasia contains 0.11 fl. oz., Smashbox contains 0.13 fl. oz., Stila contains 0.10 fl. oz., MAC contains 0.17 fl. oz.).
