Heart Goes Boom

MAC Heart Goes Boom Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a vibrant, deeper fuchsia pink with warmer undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single stroke, which applied comfortably without tugging or dragging. The texture was firmer, slightly denser with less creaminess, but it had enough glide to distribute color in one pass.

There was a smidgen of product that settled into my deeper lip lines, but it was only noticeable in the close-up photo and not in person. It stayed on well for over six hours, left a stain behind, and felt non-drying over time.

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.

Out With a Bang

MAC Out With a Bang Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a deep, reddened-plum with cooler undertones and very fine, multi-colored pearl (seemed primarily violet, aqua, and pink). The texture was lightly emollient with a touch of tackiness, which helped the color retain its luminous finish but not slide around during wear.

It had semi-opaque pigmentation that could be built up to mostly opaque coverage with a second layer. This shade wore nicely for over six hours, left a faint stain behind, and was lightly hydrating.

Mmm! Both of these shades are so rich and stunning! I’m just a little bit concerned that Heart Goes Boom may be very close to UD Catfight? No?
Even though I have UD Bruise, Out With A Bang is very tempting due to it having fine multicolored sparkle! That just gives it something extra special!

These two are RIGHT up my alley!!
Too bad I have to wear a face mask everytime I step out of my apartment where I live (including to work), and it will be the case for the forseeable future, so purchasing lipstick is out of the question 🙁
