City Slick

MAC City Slick Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light gray with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation, though not quite opaque in one layer, with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that didn’t feel too heavy or too thin on the lips. For such a light shade, it actually applied quite well without any liner, lip brush, or extra effort, but it is still a shade that would work better with a lip primer or lip liner underneath. I find that very light shades like this tend to need a liner if only to help soften the edges of the lips so they are neater. The lipstick lasted for four hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating on me.

Formula Overview

$20.00/0.1 oz. - $200.00 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.

Evening Buzz

MAC Evening Buzz Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark grayish lavender with cool undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that covered the lips evenly and smoothly. The consistency was a little thicker on the lips, but it had a creamy feel and applied without tugging. The formula felt lightly hydrating over the five hours it lasted for. It was a more unique color, and I’m glad it applied fairly well without much effort.

Mud Wrestler

MAC Mud Wrestler Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, light-medium beige-brown with a hint of pink and a satin finish. It had rich pigmentation with a lightly creamy, light-medium weight texture that applied evenly but pulled away at a couple of my lip lines (it was minor, though). The formula wore nicely for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating on me.

I *love* Evening Buzz! Of course I have two of its dupes… and still want it, lol!

City Slick is a great color, but probably too light and too warm for me, even if used in combination with other shades. Mud Wrestler is not really my kind of shade, but I’m glad they did a good job with the really light shades. They seem to have done a pretty good job with these Rocker Chick lipsticks overall 🙂 I’m curious to see how Night Mint will perform!

Evening Buzz is such an unexpectedly pretty shade of dusty lilac! I like! However, it is perhaps a bit too cool-toned for me, so I will also try on Galaxy Grey as it’s a warmer version of this same more wearable type lilac.

On the other hand, City Slick and Mud Wrestler (horrid name due to its connotations!) are both much too pale for my tastes and coloring.

I like all of the three, but they aren’t for me. I so wish I could pull the light colours off, but I look like a badly made up extra in a zombie movie. Not a nice sight, I promise.

that last one is a perfect nude for you. these colours really interest me, but i’m wondering if liquid mattes would be better for these colours. i think Makeup Monsters probably have something similar to the first two. and other indie brands like Necromancy Cosmetica have stuff like this too. it can sometimes be a challenge for me to figure out what to choose, from what brand so that I don’t have a million dupes. i think i’d rather go to indie brands for these for some reason. although Mac is more readily available to me.

I get anxiety when I see people get super excited about unconventional colors. My anxiety is because I don’t understand it. I don’t think grey, blues, yellow, green, etc are flattering colors for any skin tone. But it’s a trend! More companies r expanding their lines to include these colors. And the reaction from ur readers is very positive. I have yet to see anyone, more “mainstream” on the street wearing these colors, outside of Halloween. But the way things r trending, it will be more common place I think…I just don’t get it?
