Beach Nut

MAC Beach Nut Lipstick ($18.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark, muted purple with subtle,w arm undertones and a satin finish. The color payoff was fantastic with smooth, even coverage in a single layer. The lipstick had a firmer, denser feel in the tube but glided across my lips without dragging. It wore well for six hours, left a faint, pinkish stain behind, and was non-drying. It was listed as a matte, but it didn’t look matte until after a few hours of wear (after the shine wore away).

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.

Goodbye Kiss

MAC Goodbye Kiss Lipstick ($18.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a slightly bright, medium pink with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a lightweight, lightly creamy texture that had moderate slip but adhered well to my lips and didn’t slide around while worn. The lipstick stayed on well for four and a half hours with a lightly hydrating feel.

Beach Nut is as beautiful in performance as it is in appearance. I’m loving this one! But I think it’s one I need to try on to make sure that it doesn’t run too cool for my skintone. It probably won’t, but I just want to be sure.

I’m skipping that bubblegum/cotton candy pink shade, though! These are the types of shades that can make me look green around the gills, LOL.

Beach Nut is not particularly close to its dupes, at all. Think it will be a huge hit with purple lovers, who will be able to justify it pretty easily. Beautiful.

I love purple lipstick! I just did a swatch comparison between Beach Nut and MAC Heroine, which is the best purple I’ve found for my skin tone. Unfortunately, Beach Nut looks way too cool-toned for me, but it is a very pretty shade.

Ugh… I loved beach nut but was afraid it would my teeth look yellowish. And now that you mention it being more on the cool side of purple, well, I don’t know if it work for me and my warm complexion. Still a lovely color for a night out.

Beach nut is a beautiful color; but, I almost regret buying it because it looks so much like Rossy by MAC, which I already own. You are right, though. The color goes on beautifully. So, I guess it’s a keeper. I just wish it was a little less like Rossy.
