Just Wondering

MAC Just Wondering Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a deep, raspberry pink with cooler undertones and a satin finish. The consistency was lightweight, lightly creamy without being too emollient, and comfortable to wear. It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to my lips and smoothed out some of my lip lines. It stayed on well for five and a half hours, left a slight pink stain behind, and was lightly hydrating over time.

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.

Just Curious

MAC Just Curious Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coral with moderate, warm undertones and a cream finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, even coverage achieved in a single, fluid stroke. The lipstick had a lightly creamy, lightweight texture that was comfortable to apply and to wear. It lasted well for five hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Why don’t I have dupes for Just Wondering? I may have Maybelline Fiery Fuchsia, I’m not sure, but it’ll be very old, if I do have it.
Just Wondering is a gorgeous lipstick, I really want it. When all of the Rethink Pinks are reviewed I’ll make a more informed decision on what I will get, if anything from the release. As of now, this one high on the list.
Just Curious is the kind of coral I would love to be able to use, but I do know I’d put it on and then remove it as it would look wrong on me.
