My Tweedy

MAC My Tweedy Powder Kiss Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep peach with warm, orange undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a smooth, velvety texture that was lightweight and comfortable to apply in a fluid motion. The lipstick emphasized my lip texture and found any imperfections on my lips, and it did pull into my lip lines from the beginning and worsened over the three hours it lasted for. It felt non-drying while worn.

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.10 oz. - $190.00 Per Ounce

MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.10 oz.) is supposed to feel "weightless" with a "blur of effortless soft-focus color." Per the brand, the formula "provides immediate and long-term hydration" while "blur[ring] lines and smooth[ing] lips" and having "zero-shine." They have a bit of shine and slip; I wouldn't call them zero-shine so much as very smooth and more like a natural or soft matte finish. Like any finish with slight shine, they did wear down to a more, flat matte finish within an hour or so of wear. The consistency was lightweight, thin, and velvety with a bit of slip (a little like a silicone primer to me) and was comfortable to wear with a non-drying to lightly hydrating feel.

The pigmentation ranged from semi-opaque to opaque with deeper shades having more coverage. There were a few very light shades, which did not apply as evenly and had a tendency to catch on any imperfections on my lips, whereas the deeper shades went on more smoothly and looked more flattering on as they were less likely to emphasize texture. They lasted between two and a half and six hours with deeper shades, unsurprisingly, lasting longer than the ultra-light ones.

I personally found the scent of these to be noticeably different, both that it was sweeter and less vanilla-based but I also got a strong rubber scent that came through. The scent did not linger for long, so it wasn't something that I detected throughout the wear, but it had a strong, sweet taste that was present until it was gone. Other readers who have smelled the formula in person did not catch any rubber/off-putting scent (my husband thought it smelled weird, not bad per se, but couldn't be more specific), and when I went back to double check each shade, each one of mine still had that rubbery note.

Nyma Tang

MAC Nyma Tang Lipstick ($18.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark red with a cool, blue undertone and a satin finish. It was richly pigmented with a lightly emollient consistency that was thin without being clingy, so it glided easily across my lips but adhered well for long-wear and did not feather or bleed on me over time. The lipstick stayed on well for over six hours, left a faint stain behind, and was lightly hydrating.

Formula Overview

$18.50/0.10 oz. - $185.00 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.

DavidBlond

MAC DavidBlond The Blonds Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium pink with soft, warm undertones and a lightly pearlized finish. It had medium color coverage, which was somewhat buildable to semi-opaque coverage if desired, though it was a Lustre finish, so the sheerness was expected. The texture was lightweight, thin, and moderately emollient–it felt creamier than most Lustres, actually. The color applied fairly evenly but slid around a bit while worn. It wore well for three hours and was lightly hydrating to me.

TheBlonds

MAC TheBlonds The Blonds Magic Dust Powder ($41.00 for 0.63 oz.) is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a luminous sheen. The powder had a very smooth, almost velvety consistency, as it was firmer, denser, but not heavy or thick, so I didn’t have any issues picking up the product with softer brushes but there wasn’t any powderiness in the pan either. It had opaque color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin, blended out with ease, and didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for eight hours on me before I noticed slight fading. Also, the compact is enormous–0.63 oz.!–which is over double the average highlighter.

BijouxBlond

MAC BijouxBlond The Blonds Dazzleglass ($20.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a translucent base with flecks of pink and gold pearl and larger sparkles. MAC did describe it as “clear,” so it had exactly the pigmentation level expected (none!) with a semi-sheer amount of sparkle/pearl. The consistency was smooth, moderately tacky, a little thicker but not heavy on my lips, and comfortable to wear. The gloss smoothed out my lip lines, and the sparkles distributed evenly across my lips for even “coverage.” It lasted well for five hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

MAC Oh No She Beta Don’t PatrickStarrr Face Kit ($42.50 for 0.36 oz.) is a new, limited edition set that contains an eyeshadow quad and a liquid lipstick. One shade in the eyeshadow quad was a total fail, while the other three eyeshadows and the liquid lipstick were decent to good, but at this price point, one would expect no fails.
