MAC Night Blooming Mattene Lipstick
Passionately Tempted May Be More Conventional Than You Thought
MAC Night Blooming Mattene Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as a “mid-tone blue pink.” It’s a vibrant magenta pink with strong, cool blue undertones and a satin-matte finish. MAC Outrageously Fun is less vibrant, pinker. Le Metier de Beaute Paris is darker, pinker. MAC Dear Diary is more vibrant. MAC Candy Yum Yum is cooler-toned. MAC Pink Pigeon is a touch lighter. MAC Love Forever is lighter, more muted.
It’s rich in color and applies with opaque color coverage. The texture is creamy and glides on easily. The finish is satiny initially, but after an hour or two, it becomes mostly matte. This particular shade did stain my lips (which you may or may not appreciate), and it lasted for six and a half hours plus had a lingering stain for another hour or so. It is vanilla-scented, and while creamy, it was not too thick or heavy worn. There are two other shades of Mattenes coming out with this collection, which I’ll review when I’m able to purchase them.
