Smoked Almond

MAC Smoked Almond Lipstick ($18.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coral with warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly but separated along my lip lines and emphasized my lip texture as a result. The consistency was denser, a bit firm, but it melted against my lips enough not to drag during application. It wore well for four hours and was lightly hydrating.

This color used to be available in the Liptensity formula, and it was more pigmented with a creamier, glossier finish (better quality overall).

Formula Overview

$18.50/0.1 oz. - $185.00 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.

Good Form

MAC Good Form Lipstick ($18.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium-dark, coppery-red with warm undertones and a fine, pearly sheen. It had a “Lustre” finish, which meant it wasn’t supposed to be full coverage (like most of the MAC lipstick finishes), though it still had more medium to semi-opaque color payoff in a single layer. The texture was thin, lightly emollient, but it didn’t feel clingy and didn’t settle into my lip lines. It stayed on well for three and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating on me.

When I tried on Smoked Almond last week, I really loved the way it looked on me. It actually made me look even younger and very fresh! The caveat being that perhaps the reason I didn’t see the settling into my lip lines is because my lips are a bit darker than yours, so that may have obscured this on mine. Not sure, though.

Kicking myself in the shinbone for not trying on Good Form! That’s such a beautiful shade. However, after trying on 6 other lipsticks, and 2 Lipglasses, my lips felt too raw to try even one more!

Smoked Almond doesn’t look “smoked” or “almond” in the tube and seeing it in the tube, I was so excited but applied, it doesn’t look at all like what I was expecting/hoping for (it looks so much more “Plumful-ish” in the bullet/tube). Same for Good Form to some extent but I’m really disappointed in Smoked Almond.

I am really disappointed in Smoked Almond. It is a beautiful shade but when i tried it on it did not look even and emphasized my lip lines.

I think I like Good Form better than Smoked Almond, it’s such a fresh spring shade that would be wearable in a work environment and would complement most eye looks. Very pretty.
