MAC Luxurious Pink Lip Look Bag
Rich, Luxurious Pinks Galore
MAC Luxurious Pink Lip Look Bag ($39.50) contains Lickable (lipstick, bright, clean blue pink), Call Me Gorgeous (Cremesheen Glass, bright fuchsia with gold pearl), and Great Catch (lip pencil, bright cream fuchsia).
The lipstick is 0.10 oz. (full-sized), Cremesheen Glass is 0.09 oz. (full-sized), and the lip pencil is 0.02 oz. (full-sized is 0.05 oz.). The value of the three products is $40.50, and then you also get a vinyl bag with leopard-print and pink satin that peeks through it.
Lickable is a bright blue-based fuchsia pink with mostly opaque color coverage and a natural sheen. This shade has a Cremesheen finish, and it is part of the permanent range. Tom Ford Aphrodisiac is darker, redder. MAC Insanely It is redder. MAC Gulabi is similar. MAC Catharina is lighter. MAC Full Fuchsia is a smidgen redder. Tom Ford Pure Pink is a touch darker.
Call Me Gorgeous is a blue-based, medium magenta pink with gold shimmer. It has semi-opaque color coverage and while it settles slightly into lip lines, it isn’t noticeable at a distance. MAC Full Speed Ahead is more opaque and a little cooler-toned. MAC Sassy Lassy is a lot lighter. MAC True Babe is more blue-based. YSL Pure Hibiscus is similar but has no shimmer.
Great Catch is a dark fuchsia-red with a modern matte finish (barest of sheens, but still, mostly matte).
When layered together, the result is a vibrant, medium-dark fuchsia pink with sparkle and a glossy sheen. The whole combination wore for seven hours, though the glossy sheen wore off within an hour. There was a slight stain left behind. MAC really delivered on a luxurious pink lip look here.
I wish Cremesheens worked better on me! Lickable lasts six hours on its own, and while I didn’t experience hydration, I didn’t find it particularly drying, which was a nice surprise (I usually find Cremesheens slightly drying!). It does pull a little at lips when you go to apply the color, but it does eventually apply more fluidly as the temperature of your lips heat it up. Call Me Gorgeous wore for two hours when I tested it, which is short for wear. Great Catch wears long and well, but again, it’s not a very comfortable formula on its own as it tends to cling to lips and doesn’t add any moisture.
