MAC In the Groove Collection – Lipsticks

In the Groove also includes five new and limited lipsticks (plus one repromote–Creme d’Nude). All six of the lipsticks have a cremesheen finish, so they’re on the more pigmented side with creamier-looking color (less shimmer/frost), but they have less moisture in them (though I don’t find them drying).

The Summer Season: MAC Neon Orange Lipstick

MAC Neon Orange Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a traffic-stopping opaque neon orange.  The name really says it all — it’s bright, in-your-face, and exactly orange.  It’s unabashedly orange, and you won’t see it apologizing for anything any time soon!  It has such a smooth texture with incredibly rich, opaque color.  The finish is creamy, but it has a little bit of a sheen that lights it up.   It really has an amazing feel, and it is one of MAC’s best lipsticks in terms of quality–even if the color may be a little hard to wear!

The Summer Season: MAC See Sheer Lipstick

MAC See Sheer Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a slightly muted coral-orange with a glossy sheen.  It has a creamier look to it, as there is no noticeable shimmer in it.  It delivers nearly full-color coverage–you can just lightly see the freckle on my lower lip.  It wears very well and feels incredibly comfortable on–soft, moisturizing, clinging enough to wear for three to four hours, but not tight or drying.  It’s a fun way to wear coral without going full-on coral.

The Summer Season: MAC Crosswires Lipstick

MAC Crosswires Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a lovely shade of coral-pink–it’s not super bright like Vegas Volt, but it’s not so muted that it ends up looking washed out.  It’s easily one of my favorite corals amongst MAC’s permanent line, too.  The cremesheen formula gives Crosswires a soft glistening sheen while still giving a good deal of color coverage on lips.  It’s about as opaque as a lipstick can get on my lips!   It even has this almost-there golden sheen.  It’s very, very subtle, but it’s most noticeable in the sunlight.

The Summer Season: MAC Full Fuchsia Lipstick

MAC Full Fuchsia Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright fuchsia pink with full-color coverage and a slight sheen. It has an amplified creme finish, so it’s creamy but not overly so. It does have a frostier finish than the majority of amplified cremes, though. I love how opaque it is, and I find it a barely-there cool-toned hot pink, so it’s wearable for both cool and warm skin tones.  This is a PRO shade that’s occasionally available through trend picks on the consumer website, but anyone can visit or call their nearest PRO store to purchase (no membership required!).
