Love Weapon

MAC Love Weapon Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour Metallic ($21.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish berry with cool undertones and flecks of sparkle. This did not look very metallic on; it seemed more matte with some sparkle thrown in. The coverage was medium, buildable with a second or third layer. The texture was rather watery, took longer to dry, and was harder to control on the lips as it wanted to move too readily across my lips. This shade wore well for six and a half hours, left a stain behind, and was somewhat drying.

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.

Quartzette

MAC Quartzette Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour Metallic ($21.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium brown with warm, rosy undertones and a golden pearl. It had good color coverage–just shy of truly opaque coverage–in one layer. The texture was smooth, lightweight without being too watery or too runny, but it went on thinly and evenly so it did not flake off as it wore away. This shade lasted well for seven hours on me and was slightly drying over time.

Gemz and Roses

MAC Gemz and Roses Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour Metallic ($21.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy plum with warm undertones and a metallic “matte” finish. The liquid lipstick dried down to a matte, transfer-resistant finish, but it was still shimmery. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer that applied well across the lips with even, smooth color distribution that dried down fast enough not to gather in my lip lines. It wore well for seven hours and was slightly drying over time.

MAC Perfect Bronze Mineralize Blush Duo ($28.00 for 0.11 oz.) contains a brighter pink and a deeper copper housed in the same compact. The compact could be larger to accommodate a blush brush more easily, which would make it more feasible to pick up one color at a time. It was possible, but I used smaller cheek brushes and was mindful of where I put my brush.

Satin Shimmer

MAC Satin Shimmer Mineralize Skinfinish ($33.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a light-medium, golden brown with warmer, yellow undertones and a soft, golden shimmer. As I buffed and blended the powder on my skin, it appeared more luminous and almost metallic, which seemed emphasize my skin’s natural texture slightly.

The powder was smooth to the touch but had larger shimmer particles, which I could feel to a small degree, but the powder still applied evenly and blended out nicely without much effort. It had good pigmentation that built up to full coverage with two layers. On my normal-to-dry skin, the color stayed on well for eight hours before fading slightly.

Formula Overview

$34.00/0.35 oz. - $97.14 Per Ounce

Per the brand, the formula is supposed to "provide radiance" that has a "velvety soft" texture and "sheer coverage." (This description is as of 12/9/2017.) The powders vary a lot from shade to shade; some are glittery and others are pearly or metallic, while the pigmentation can be medium and buildable to fairly opaque in one go. They tend to wear between six and eight hours on me.

MAC Opal Beach Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($25.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light, peachy gold with warm, golden pearl. It had medium coverage that didn’t build beyond semi-opaque coverage. The texture was thin, balm-like, and comfortable to wear, though it emphasized every imperfection on my lips and pulled into lip lines immediately and only worsened over time. It lasted for three hours on me (not at all close to the six hours promised!).

Formula Overview

$25.00/0.14 oz. - $178.57 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have buildable coverage with "long-term hydration" that helps to "blur lip lines" and lasts for "[six] hours."T he formula has MAC’s signature vanilla scent but no discernible taste. The majority of the shades I’ve tested in this formula have semi-opaque to opaque coverage, last three to six hours, are hydrating, and feel comfortable to wear. Some are quite pigmented, while others are truer to the buildable coverage claim. There were some shades that seemed to smooth out my lip lines but a few emphasized them or settled into them noticeably.
