MAC Raspberry Swirl Lipstick
MAC Raspberry Swirl Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “light white blue pink [with a Cremesheen finish].” It’s a cool-toned, light-medium blue-based pink with a soft sheen. OCC Digitalis is lighter, bluer. MAC Snob is slightly darker/grayer. MAC Saint Germain is a touch purpler. MAC Pink Nouveau is brighter, pinker. MAC Naughty Saute is brighter, pinker, glossier. MAC All Styled Up is slightly pinker.
It has mostly opaque color coverage, and the consistency was creamy enough that the lipstick glided across the lips without pulling or tugging but not so creamy that it felt thick or was prone to creating lines of demarcation once applied. Raspberry Swirl lasted four hours on me, and it was neither drying nor hydrating (but this is an improvement, as many Cremesheens are a bit drying on me). It definitely felt creamier than other Cremesheens I’ve tried. I noticed that this color did pull the yellow out of my teeth, which this kind of color can sometimes do. I think that MAC does this color quite a bit, some are closer to this than others, but there are many variations of it and most of them are by MAC.
