The Pinkprint

MAC The Pinkprint Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a soft, light-medium pink with warmer undertones and a natural sheen. The pigmentation was nearly opaque in a single layer. It seemed to have more slip than most Amplifieds, which made it appear a touch streaky along the edges and more prone to settling in my lip lines. The texture was comfortable to wear as the creamy quality helped it glide on without tugging. It wore well for four hours but settled further into my lip lines. The formula felt lightly moisturizing while worn.

Formula Overview

$17.50/0.10 oz. - $175.00 Per Ounce

MAC Lipstick comes in a variety of finishes, and the pigmentation and wear tend to be dependent on the finish. The sheer finishes, like Lustres, tend to wear for only a couple of hours and have sheer coverage (as designed) and are non-drying. Some of the original Matte shades have a stiffer, drier formula, while newer ones have a more velvety, silicone-feel to them, and the latter are creamier, more comfortable to wear, and easier to apply, but most Matte shades are quite pigmented and long-wearing, though some are drying. The Amplified and Satin finishes tend to have good pigmentation, lightly creamy to moderately creamy consistencies with a bit of shine, and moderate to long wear with deeper, richer shades wearing longer. The Frost and Metallic finishes have the most variance between shades with coverage ranging from semi-sheer to opaque with average wear and non-drying to slightly drying formulas. All MAC lipsticks are vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.

Viva Glam Taraji P. Henson 2

MAC Viva Glam Taraji P Henson 2 Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep, reddish brown with warmer undertones and multi-colored, metallic shimmer–a mix of green, gold, and copper. It had good pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage. The consistency was lightweight, thin but not clingy, and smooth, which made it easy to maneuver across the lips. The lipstick went on evenly and lasted for five hours on me, while the formula was neither drying nor hydrating.
