Flawless is More

($22.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium, pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous finish with faint gold pearl. The texture was lightweight, lightly emollient but on the thinner side, so while it didn’t feel clingy, it also didn’t slide around too much during wear.

It had medium, somewhat buildable pigmentation, which was as marketed, that lasted for four hours (which was far shorter than marketed) but felt lightly hydrating.

Formula Overview

$22.00/0.1 oz. - $220.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "sheer, buildable colour" that is moisturizing, while also being long-wearing with "six hours" of shine and "eight hours" of color.

First and foremost, these have an unexpectedly long long-wearing claim. Eight hours of wear is a feat for any lipstick, let alone one that is sheerer, more luminous, and hydrating. It likely comes as no shock that they did not wear close to eight hours. The wear ranged from three to four hours, which was in line with other, more luminous formulas of similar coverage-level and was a little longer than the average Lustre lipstick in the past (though more consistent with recently released Lustres).

The updated take on the Lustre finish is more emollient, creamier, and has more consistent coverage. It is still a lighter-weight, thinner consistency relative to MAC's other lipsticks and most other lipstick formulas on the market. The colors that were brought back in the new formula were fairly consistent with the prior versions.

Most of the shades applied evenly, didn't seem to catch or emphasize texture imperfections on my lips, and weren't prone to settling into my lip lines. That being said, the current range is heavier on mid-tones, and it is often very light shades that can be the culprits of both.

The coverage ranged from semi-sheer to medium, and most shades were buildable to semi-opaque coverage, though they tended to wear down to more medium coverage within an hour or so of wear. I found that once some of the shine wore down, e.g. if one drank from a glass of water or blotted lightly, the color that remained was more like the initial layer of product.

They were vanilla-scented but had no discernible taste.

Pink Big

($22.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a vivid, fuchsia-red with subtle, cool undertones and barely-there pearl throughout a more natural sheen. It had medium color coverage that adhered evenly and smoothly to my lips without dragging or pulling on them.

The consistency was smooth, lightly emollient but thin so it didn’t slide around. It stayed on well for four and a half hours and felt lightly moisturizing.

I thought of the Band’s OG album, Music from Big Pink. 1968. Best known song, the Weight. ‘Take a load off, Annie. Take a load for free. Take a load off Annie. And put the weight right on me.’ #100 on Rolling Stone’s best 500 of all time. CP’s puns are usually kinda clever. I think they’re trying to avoid sexy or controversial, because they know we’re sick OTS.
