Get the Hint

MAC Get the Hint Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was slightly dense but not overly thick, so it applied comfortably across my lips and didn’t separate noticeably along my deeper lip lines while delivering full color coverage.

I would recommend exfoliating prior to using this shade, though, as it had more potential for emphasizing lip texture. It stayed on well for four and a half hours and felt non-drying.

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.1 oz. - $190.00 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.

Sweet Deal

MAC Sweet Deal Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a darker, muted pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a lightly creamy consistency that was a touch dense and a little firmer in the tube initially, but it softened up with frequent use.

The color applied evenly to my lips but was more prone to emphasizing lip texture, so good prep would be recommended before wearing this product. It lasted well for four and a half hours and felt non-drying.
