MAC Daphne Guinness: Pro Longwear Lipcremes

With the Daphne Guinness collection (due in-stores on December 26th), there are four limited edition shades of MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme ($17.00 for 0.12 oz.): Approaching Storm (deep rose), Red Dwarf (blue pink), Seasoned Plum (mid-tone lavender), and Warp Speed (light silver).

  • Approaching Storm is a dark berry red with a hint of brown. It has opaque color coverage. The shade reminded me of Endless Drama, which is perhaps a touch deeper. It’s also a bit like MAC Musky Amethyst.
  • Red Dwarf is a muted raspberry pink with opaque color coverage. It’s a bit darker and more berry compared to MAC Positively Dashing. It’s not as vibrant as MAC Deliciously Forbidden. It’s just a hint more muted compared to Guerlain Bee. Milani Sexy Rose is similar in color but has a frosted finish.
  • Seasoned Plum is a pinked purple with a cream finish. It delivers opaque color with little product. MAC Goes and Goes is less pink (and I think it’d be the same with Up the Amp).
  • Warp Speed is a pale silver with shimmer. I’d say the coverage is semi-opaque, but it’s hard to judge, because it applies very unevenly and doesn’t sit well on lips. It tends to bunch up in color. It’s not as cool-toned or as opaque as MAC Metal Maven. It’s more silvered and less metallic compared to MAC Bubbles. It’s more silver and creamier in comparison to MAC Eloquent Air.

These resemble shades I feel like we’ve seen recently. I was actually surprised at how similar Approaching Storm and Red Dwarf were to the Pro Longwear Lipcremes that came out with Styledriven just a couple of months ago! I do think that they’re both very flattering shades for both cool and warm complexions, and they’re very appropriate fall/winter shades. They’re not too vampy, either, which should make them more wearable. I can see Red Dwarf being very pretty with a neutral eye.

These lipsticks don’t quite get to the stated wear (12 hours), but they do wear well; I tend to get seven to eight hours of wear with darker shades (think Approaching Storm and Red Dwarf), while lighter shades tend to wear about average or less. Β Warp Speed doesn’t seem to wear well, though, and it looks like it needs a reapplication after two and a half hours. Β Generally, the formula is creamy and glides on easily without being drying.Β For a detailed review of the Pro Longwear Lipcreme formula, please see this review.

I hope Approaching Storm will also look good on me, since I’ve already ordered one!
I’m NW15, dark brown hair, green eyes.
What liner is best with it?

Red Dwarf is my favorite of the three. Approaching Storm is lovely. I have no love for Warp Speed; who could pull that off? The finish looks very nice as well, not dull but not glossy or shimmery either.

All are lovely but warp speed. Just looks too much like cheap halloween make up for justify the price imo. The other two look so flattering on you, especially Approaching Storm.

I LOVE Red Dwarf!! I think I could easily say I’m prone to fall for those shades because I got Deliciously Forbidden and it’s my FAVE colour. I loved it so much I bought 2 tubes! since it’s limited edition. Although a MAC artist did recommend Positively Dashing as a close dupe as well but I think it’s also limited edition?

Anyway, I think I’ll be picking up a tube (or 2! haha) of Red Dwarf!

I personally like the Pro Longwear lipsticks. I think they have great staying power for the most part. I like to use the lip base first, I think it helps the lipstick last even longer. Thanks for a great review.

Seasoned Plum reminds me of Covergirl’s Divine from the Lip Perfection collection, except maybe a bit darker. Warp Speed is a bit of an odd man, but I otherwise really like this set of colors. I might have to go pick some of these up!

definatly getting red dwarf, such a pretty colour πŸ™‚ I hate how we never know release dates in the UK unless we keep ringing up counters. Hope this comes out around the same time at naturally collection so I can get them both in one order πŸ™‚ x
