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.

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.

MAC Fashion Fanatic MAC Girls Personality Palette ($39.50 for TBA oz.) contains an assortment of shades that ranged from peachy coral to lavender to raspberry pink to deep purple. The palette features a new eyeshadow formula with four finishes–Satin Shine, Smooth Pearl, Foiled Shadow, and Creamy Matte–that are supposed to have a “creamy, silky texture with superior colour payoff” along with a powder highlighter that’s described as “lightweight” and has “just the right amount of pearl and pop.”

Overall, the formula isn’t night and day from the brand’s standard powder eyeshadow (and did not seem like they reinvented powder eyeshadow!), but it was noticeably softer, more finely-milled, and the Foiled finishes were denser and very sparkly–almost like an amped up take on their Lustre eyeshadows. The Creamy Matte finish seemed to have more pigmentation and blendability than of the brand’s firmer mattes have had. Unfortunately, the quality of each shade varied enough that it was not a slam dunk formulation, but I liked the direction of the formula but would like to see better consistency.

Prissy Princess

MAC Prissy Princess MAC Girls Personality Palette ($39.50 for TBA oz.) is a set lighter neutrals with one darker neutral that runs more neutral-to-warm than very-warm-toned. For someone who prefers lighter neutrals that are buildable and likely uses primer regularly, it might be worth considering, but with a sea of neutral palettes to choose from, there are many others of higher quality.

MAC Power Hungry MAC Girls Personality Palette ($39.50 for TBA oz.) is a set warm, light and mid-tone neutrals–there’s nothing particularly new or groundbreaking here, but it’s a solid neutral palette for someone with fair to medium skin and likes a softer, shimmery look (could easily have used another matte or two!).
