Black Night

MAC Black Night Lipstick ($18.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep black with warm undertones and gold pearl paired with a glossy finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, and for as much slip as it had, it went on more smoothly and evenly than anticipated, though there was plenty of room for improvement. I would recommend applying a lip liner all-over the lips for better coverage, application, and wear. I didn’t experience any feathering or bleeding over the four and a half hours it lasted for, but the product did settle into my lip lines noticeably over time.

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.

Glamour of Punk

MAC Glamour of Punk Lipstick ($18.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a soft pink with subtle, cool undertones and a frosted sheen. The shimmer was finer, so it felt rather smooth and has a more pearly effect than overtly sparkly or metallic on my lips. It had sheer color coverage, which was actually how it was described, with a thinner consistency and just enough slip not to drag. It lasted for three hours on me and was non-drying.

Rave Chic

MAC Rave Chic Lipstick ($18.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium purple with very strong, warm pink undertones and cooler violet pearl. It had semi-sheer, slightly buildable (to about medium) coverage that applied fairly evenly to my lips. Due to the translucency and the more contrasting shimmer, it worked particularly well as a layering shade–it still added a lot of oomph to my lips despite not being opaque. It was, thankfully, described as “sheer,” so it was marketed accurately! The texture was thinner but had enough slip that it glided onto my lips without tugging and was fairly comfortable to wear. It stayed on well for four hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Christine, you always manage to look so fresh and vibrant and lovely, no matter what products and/or looks you are presenting. Kudos to you and your honest and insightful reviews. I am digging the Rave Chic; but, I already own Model Behavior, which I break out every so often when I am wearing purple. The packaging is cute; but, my dupe saves me from buying Rave Chic. And I believe you gave Model Behavior similar marks; so, I am good.

Thank you, Sabrina! 🙂

Model Behavior is definitely close enough! You could always add a lil’ opal eyeshadow or iridescent eyeshadow on the center to make Model Behavior pop more.

After swatching some of these yesterday while I was at the mall, Black Night looked like the one truer black lipstick I was tempted to perhaps get. It really is a beauty!
Swatched Glamour Of Punk, too. Gotta say, I’m still scratching my head over the pale pink being called “punk”. I may have gone with Rave Chic being called something Punk, however. My very old friend was extremely Punk, and wore a very dark, bright fuchsia lipstick that had a potent blue-purple shift whenever she didn’t have on deep red or blackened something.

Darn it! I wish Black Night wasn’t glossy. I need to research to see if there’s something that can be mixed with a depotted lipstick to make it matte.

I just had to come back here and say: going from Black Night to Glamour of Punk and looking stunning in both — I think you’ve proven to everyone’s satisfaction that you can wear LITERALLY ANY COLOR … and look amazing in the process.
