A Wink of Pink

MAC A Wink of Pink Lipstick ($19.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and warmer gold and pink pearl. It had medium color coverage that was somewhat buildable (to semi-opaque coverage) but would work best for someone who prefers less coverage in their lipsticks. It had a lightweight, emollient texture that glided easily across my lips but did not slide around once on, as it was thinner and a bit “clingy” in a way (but not in an uncomfortable way). It lasted well for three and a half hours on me and was lightly hydrating.

Formula Overview

$19.50/0.1 oz. - $195.00 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.

At Leisure

MAC At Leisure Lipstick ($19.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a soft, medium copper with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation, though it wasn’t fully opaque in a single layer. The texture felt smooth, lightly creamy but was thin and didn’t have any “wet” feel to it, so it glided easily across my lips but didn’t move around while worn. The color went on evenly and stayed on well for four and a half hours, while the formula was neither drying nor hydrating on me.

Babetown

MAC Babetown Lipstick ($19.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a soft, light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that adhered evenly onto my lips with just a smidgen of product that gathered in my deeper lip lines, but it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The lipstick had a smooth, lightly creamy texture with a touch of tackiness that helped it remain creamy on but not be prone to sliding around. It wore well for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating on me.

The cremesheen formula is my all time favorite so I bought Babetown. And what a cute name, c’mon. I’m not sure about it though…. it’s crazy how it looks nice and bright on you but it looks pastel on me and totally washes me out—and I’m much paler than you with pale lips to match. Too similar to my skin tone perhaps. Im going to try mixing it with a red to make a deeper pink.

Looks amazing with MAC half Red lip liner..(.I’m a NW 20 in winter NW 25 in summer….light blonde hair, blue eyes) it’s like my perfect pink…I bought 3 of them…contemplating a 4th…by itself it is more like a nudie pink on me…

They did a wonderful bang-up job with these 3! Love ’em all. Wink Of Pink I have a dupe for in that WNMHGB from Star Trek collection. Babetown is a beauty, but I have Kitten ish Patent Polish Pencil, and the side-by-side looks close enough. Then there’s At Leisure, which shows TF Spanish Flame as a close dupe. I missed out on SF, so I may need to get myself a tube of AL!

I will get A Wink a Pink. I have regretted so much not getting that MAC WNMHGB. But I think that AWOP will show better on my lips as it is a medium pink. Thank you Christine for your review!
