Under the Sheets

MAC Under the Sheets Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light peach with warm undertones and lots of multi-colored pearl. It had medium coverage with a high-gloss finish and enough pearl that it distracted from the color that pulled into my lip lines when vieewed at a normal distance. The gloss was light-medium in weight with a sticky feel, but it was also smooth, moisturizing, and comfortable to wear. On me, it lasted for four hours.

Formula Overview

$17.00/0.10 oz. - $170.00 Per Ounce

The Lipglass formula is supposed to be “pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic color” that can be worn “on its own, over lip pencil or lipstick” and will “condition lips.” MAC could use an update on the description as some shades are more pigmented than others but several are sheerer and likely intended to be that way. The formula has a very glossy, high-shine finish with a light-medium weight and moderate tackiness.

I have found that newer Lipglasses (over the last couple of years) are smoother and not quite as tacky as the formula was many years ago. They wear from three to six hours on me and are usually lightly hydrating. MAC recently updated the shade range and packaging for the range (though the formula was said to be unchanged), so worth noting is that with that packaging change came a reduction in quantity to 0.10 fl. oz. (was 0.17 fl. oz.), which may matter for some but not everyone.

MAC x Nicki Minaj Pretty Please, The Right Note, Stripped Lipsticks

Pretty Please

MAC Pretty Please Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a pale, light pink with an icier base and warmer golden pearl. It had sheer color payoff, which was not buildable but was more in line with the Lustre finish (always sheerer). The texture was emollient going on but felt thin and was prone to getting into my lip lines. It wore well for two hours on me and was slightly drying.

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.

MAC Mmmmmm Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium, pinky mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones and a lightly glossy finish. It had rich pigmentation that applied even, opaque coverage in a single layer. The lipstick was lightly creamy with a smooth, lightweight texture that glided across my lips easily. The color stayed on well for four and a half hours and was lightly hydrating.

Bosom Friend

MAC Bosom Friend Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a light pink with subtle, warm undertones and a soft sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, which was slightly less than expected given its Cremesheen finish. The texture was lightly creamy with a touch of tackiness that never felt heavy or overly slippery on the lips, but it was comfortable to wear and didn’t drag when applied directly from the tube. There was a bit of color that gathered in my lip lines over time but the coverage was rather even, which was a huge plus given how pale the shade itself was. The lipstick lasted for three and a half hours on me and was not drying.
