Flesh Stone

MAC Flesh Stone Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour ($21.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium taupe brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, and the color applied evenly on the lips. The consistency was thin without being watery, so it spread well but was still easy to work with. There was very slight “cracking” where the color pulled away at my deeper lip lines (center of my bottom lip). It lasted for six and a half hours and faded fairly evenly and did not flake away. The formula was drying over time, though.

The Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour formula is supposed to be pigmented, last eight hours, and be “non-feathering.” They are typically pigmented and long-wearing, but the quality of the formula is all over the place–some shades wear down evenly, aren’t too drying, and apply well, while other shades are patchy, streaky, or prone to flaking (and also terribly drying!).

Bite Beauty Cava Luminous Creme Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a soft, medium mauve with warmer, pink undertones and a soft sheen. The Luminous Creme formula is supposed to be pigmented, hydrating, and long-wearing. It had good color payoff, though it was not fully opaque, with a lightweight consistency that had moderate slip and was comfortable to wear. Some of the color pulled into my lip lines. The color lasted three hours on me but was hydrating. The Amuse Bouche version appeared lighter, a little grayer, with better coverage and longer wear.

Glowing Gold

MAC Glowing Gold Eyeshadow ($16.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a frosted finish. It had rich color payoff with opaque coverage that applied evenly and smoothly on bare skin. The powder had a soft, smooth, dense but not firm texture that blended out easily without losing its intensity on my lid. The color started to fade after eight hours of wear.
