Moon Landing

MAC Moon Landing Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour Metallic ($21.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a deep, navy blue with cool, violet undertones and a metallic finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that did not apply evenly and was extremely prone to drying down into my lip lines and looking “cracked” when I smiled. The consistency was lightweight, thin but not clingy, but I noticed this particular shade seemed a little more watery and took longer to dry down (which may have contributed to application problems across the board). This shade lasted for six hours, left a stain behind, and was on the drying side.

Formula Overview

$21.00/0.17 oz. - $123.53 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "pure matte metallic colour" that "lasts and lasts" for eight hours. Most of the shades were quite pigmented--semi-opaque to opaque--and applied evenly, though there were a few misses that had more watery textures that either lacked in pigmentation or went on patchily. I'd say about half the range felt non-drying over time but some were noticeably drying. They were vanilla-scented but had no discernible taste.

Milani Luminous Light Hypnotic Lights Powder Highlighter ($12.99 for 0.30 oz.) is a light pink with pink-to-lavender shifting, ultra-fine pearl paired with a satin finish. I found it looked cooler-toned and more lavender applied and blended out on my cheekbones than it appeared in the pan. It had good pigmentation, which was buildable to full coverage with half of layer more, but it was also easy to sheer out if preferred. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too firmly or too losely pressed in the pan. The powder applied easily and sat well on my skin. It wore for eight hours before I noticed signs of fading.

Formula Overview

$12.99/0.30 oz. - $43.30 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "silky-smooth" and have a "subtle, iridescent glow." Subtle is right on the money; they have an ethereal glow that's there but not blaring, and there's really a sea of intense, metallic highlighters on the market, so seeing something on the subtle end of the spectrum was refreshing. The powders had a soft, smooth, slightly dense consistency, but they did not feel stiff nor were they difficult to pickup with a brush. They blended out easily on the skin, sat well, and yielded a lit-from-within kind of glow. On me, they lasted for eight hours.
