Purple Panna Cotta

MAC Purple Panna Cotta Oh Sweetie Lipcolour ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium, rosy mauve with subtle, cool undertones and fine, medium pink pearl. It had good color coverage that applied evenly across my lips and didn’t sink into my lip lines as noticeably as a lot of the other shades in the formula have. This shade was also significantly less shimmery/metallic in finish, and it did seem that the less overtly shimmery shades applied and lasted better. As the shininess wore away, it felt less and less creamy (but it took over an hour to get there!) and didn’t slide around any more. The scent was a more indistinct, sweet berries-and-cream, and I didn’t notice any taste. This shade wore well for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Formula Overview

$17.50/0.1 oz. - $175.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "lasting colour" for "eight hour" wear that's "hydrating" and "non-feathering" that comes in "frosted opaque hues." There are 15 shades in the range, and each one has its own distinct scent--tied to its name--and most of the scents were pretty dead-on but I could see those with more sophisticated noses finding some scents a little cloying or synthetic. I didn't notice the scents lingering for long after I applied the respective shade, and I didn't notice any tastes. The coverage ranged from semi-opaque to opaque, while the application was inconsistent, and I think it'll come down to how one wants to wear a particular shade (layered or alone) whether the application pitfalls (settling into lip lines, unevenness) of some shades will be deal-breakers.

The finish on most shades was very shiny and metallic with an initial glossiness that took an hour to three to wear down; most shades felt like a lipstick and gloss hybrid but I can see why MAC has it listed as a lipstick. Once the glossiness goes away, the remaining color and finish look a lot more like a lipstick than a gloss, and it felt clingier (some more than others) and seemed to adhere better. The texture is lightweight, smooth, and mostly non-sticky, so there was more slip and creaminess compared to something like Lipglass, and it didn't have the dry down of a Retro Matte Lipcolour.

They definitely did not wear for eight hours--that claim felt really over-the-top to me--and most shades lasted between four and six hours with a few deviating from that range. There's enough product in an application that a good amount of color comes through after drinking a coffee or glass of water (despite transfer). They were lightly hydrating at best but some seemed more non-drying over time. One upside was that getting colors in this finish (metallic/pearl with some shine) and opacity level (even when they weren't opaque) made them less dupable, though I looked for dupes across lipstick and gloss options.

Raspberry Pavlova

MAC Raspberry Pavlova Oh Sweetie Lipcolour ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep, fuchsia pink with strong, cool blue undertones and a fine, pink pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied without streaking, but I did have color that sank into my deeper lip lines. The texture was lightweight, creamy, and moderately slippery when applied and remained emollient for the first hour and a half of wear before the shine started to wear down and leave the color less glossy and felt like it was more adhered to my lips. It had a sweet, lemony-raspberry scent–there was a tartness lurking in the background of the slightly sweetened raspberry note I got–and a little bit of creaminess overall, and there seemed to be a slight sweet taste. The color stayed on fairly well for six hours on me and felt non-drying over time.

I bought Purple Panna Cotta and I’m wearing it for the first time today (other than trying it on at home). First, it looks a little bit more purple on me than in your photos, Christine. On me, it is similar to ColourPop’s Molly. Here are my thoughts about it now that I’ve been wearing it for a few hours:

It started off feeling like a pearly version of a Cremesheen in texture, and took quite a while to dry down. After a few hours, it’s still fully present on my lips and it feels kind of like a MAC satin lipstick. The scent is barely noticeable anymore and it never had a taste.

What I like about it: It’s beautiful during the first hour or so. A comfortable, creamy, pearly, pinky-lavender. It stays on a long time.

What I don’t like about it: Now that it’s fully dried down, it has lost its sheen and it makes my lips look more wrinkly than they are.

I guess I should have waited for the review before buying it.

Yeah, this is a formula that one needs to wear for a couple of hours, because it does change texture significantly but it’s a very slow process – it is like other, non-dry down liquid lipsticks to a degree (as most glossy products lose their shine), but this one loses creaminess/slip over time.

It’s very disappointing how much it changes. I was so happy with it the day when I bought it and tried it on at home before going to bed (washed it off before it had time to change). I guess I’ll just need to reapply it every two hours to keep it looking nice! Oh well. I jumped the gun on this one. Next time I wait for your review!

Glad I just checked here – I was thinking of getting Purple Panna Cotta. This color is one of my favorites (I have CP Molly and MAC Men Love Mystery and MAC Up the Amp), but I wouldn’t care for that texture at all.

Gosh! These are both so summertime pretty! No surprise, but I have some dupes for Purple Panna Cotta (didn’t realize it until now). Nothing I can think of offhand for Raspberry Pavlova, though! Another one that has that worrisome slightly sweet taste…going to have to check it in-store.
