MAC Lipsticks: Pick Me Pick Me, Model Behavior, On and On, Pink You Think?

MAC Pick Me, Pick Me Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is an icy, smoky lavender with cool undertones and a sparkly finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff, which wasn’t part of the description. It may work better as a layering shade, though the shimmer spread across the lips evenly, which made it wearable as a standalone shade. The color lasted for two and a half hours on me but was neither drying nor hydrating. Urban Decay Monarchy (P, $18.00) is darker (90% similar).

MAC Model Behavior Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark magenta purple with warm, pink undertones and fine violet shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly, though there was a bit of streaking around the edges. The texture was thin, emollient so it did not tug, but it was a bit drying after four and a half hours of wear. Urban Decay Mad Hatter (LE, $18.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Royal Hour (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Milk Makeup Willow (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Makeup Geek Drumroll (P, $15.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar).

MAC On and On Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish-brown with warm undertones and duochrome sparkle that shifted from green-gold to bluish-teal. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color payoff, but the consistency was fairly slippery, which resulted in patchier coverage and color that settled into lip lines. The color lasted for almost four hours, so that was an upside, but it just looked bad on its own. This is a deeper, more conventional base shade, so it would work well with a lot of lip liners for added coverage while still getting the uniqueness of the shimmer to come through. Too Faced That Girl (LE, $22.00) is darker (90% similar). NYX Modern Maven (P, $7.50) is more shimmery, lighter, more pigmented (90% similar). KVD Beauty Mercy (DC, $21.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Urban Decay Bruja (P, $18.00) is warmer, less glossy (90% similar). Ciate Apollo (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar).

MAC Pink, You Think? Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and lighter magenta shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly, though some of the shimmer didn’t spread as easily across the lips. The texture had a noticeable feeling from the sparkle, but it wasn’t uncomfortable to apply or to wear. On me, this shade lasted for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Tom Ford Beauty Francesco (LE, $36.00) is darker, cooler (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Pink Straight (320) (P, $26.00) is less glossy (90% similar).

Formula Overview

MAC Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is available in several finishes, and the performance tends to vary with the finish. Amplified, Satins, and Mattes tend to have the most pigmentation, longer wear, and more even coverage, but satins and mattes can be drying at times. Lustres are the sheerest, can sometimes be drying, and often wear only an hour or two as they have a lot of slip. Frosts vary from medium to opaque coverage, some shimmer to glitter, and wear an average of four hours. Cremesheens have more slip and medium or better coverage, but they can often settle into lip lines or look streaky if they are lighter in color. All of MAC’s lipsticks are vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.

I like the icy lavendar in Pick Me, Pick Me, reminds me of winter. And Model Behavior is pretty! I like that berry color with blue shimmer

I had to return On and On–it looked awful on me. It looks much better on you. Lipsticks aside, I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw your eye look. Wow!

Seana Avatar

pick me pick me kind of looks like hellraiser from a 2010 (I think?) collection! can anyone who has hellraiser confirm? I’ve been looking everywhere for it for years to no avail! 🙁

Ginny Avatar

On and On is very disappointing. When these were announced that was the one I thought sounded most interesting. I actually like Pick Me a bit. I can see it’s not the best but the color and effect is pretty.

I’ve been debating on getting Pick Me,Pick Me and Soft Hint from another review of these to use as toppers.I just don’t understand how MAC released some of these into their permenant collection.In the tube they look beautiful on the lips they look totally different!

Alys Avatar

I’m shocked at how not blue “Pick Me Pick Me” is on! The funny thing about “On and On” is it reminds me of Urban Decay Solstice eyeshadow, which I crushed up and dumped into some Buxom lip gloss and it looks wayyyyyy better than MAC’s attempt! Haha

Rachael Avatar

Your pictures make lipsticks that I would never want irresistible to me. So I’m so confused why when I swatch lipsticks like pick me pick me or soft hint they look better in person. It’s literally the 1st time that has ever happened. I always feel like your pics get more lipsticks sold then anything the companies who are selling them do. I literally will buy something and still come look at ur pics just to see how good it could look!

Christine Avatar

I would guess that those are both shades that have more iridescence to them, so in person, they have more sparkle/movement than they do in a still photo. Your lip color might be a lot prettier than mine (which is very ugly), and as they are sheerer shades, your natural lip color will have a huge impact!

Elina Avatar

Usually, I look up reviews before I get products, but I’m glad I didn’t do this in the case of “On and On”. I adore this shade so much and if I had looked at your review I’d probably had never even swatched it.

Jennifer Avatar

I can’t begin to describe how different On and On looks in me. Very duochrome-blue/green. Sheer and nowhere near this red or brown. I’m shocked it’s the same lipstick. Natural lip color must really affect it. It’s one of my favorite recent lipstick purchases.
