Shrimpton

MAC Shrimpton Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium peach with warm undertones and a satin finish. The lipstick had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging. I was impressed by how evenly it applied given how light the color was. The texture was lightweight, thicker (which I felt helped keep it from emphasizing my lip lines), and comfortable to wear. The color lasted for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

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.

Icon

MAC Icon Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark bronze with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had medium coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque pigmentation with two to three layers. The lipstick was smooth, lightly creamy with moderate slip and a thin consistency that glided across my lips without tugging. It wore well for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Spanish Fly

MAC Spanish Fly Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark, plummy brown with warm undertones and blue-to-teal shifting pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightweight, thin, lightly emollient texture that glided across my lips easily and was comfortable to wear. The color went on evenly and stayed on well for four and a half hours. My lips didn’t feel dry after wearing this shade.

Bronx

MAC Bronx Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark beige with warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. The texture was denser and firmer in the tube, though it didn’t seem to drag on my lips, but it did apply a thinner layer of product that was more prone to emphasizing my lip texture. It wore well for four and a half hours but was somewhat drying over time.

I’m surprising myself by saying there’s nothing here that appeals to me. I really wanted to like Bronx, but it looks too flat-matte. And I wish I liked Shrimpton (especially because it was named after the 60s model), but it seems too light for me. Oh well, money saved.

I somehow got talked in to trying Spanish Fly on, with the SA saying that it may not look so great in the tube but “you’re going to love it over a darker liner or lipstick!” Well, I really do! I wear it over Nyx Mahogany Slim Lip Pencil with a little bit of gloss on top, and it gets lots of compliments.

The other 3 aren’t quite calling to me like the above shade. Possibly Icon, if anything. But then again, I still have VG Rihanna 2.

Gosh, I love the way Spanish Fly looks on you. My skin tends to turn any browninsh pink colors into straight brown, though, but I am tempted.

Let me know if you try it – I feel like it may be a bit different from person to person due to it not being 100% opaque!

Are these from yet another LE collection by MAC? Because they only have about 2 or 3 LE collections currently running, so it’s about time for them to bring out another one, no?

Love Icon and Spanish Fly. If I didn’t have a full drawer of lippies after giving away a full box, I would get them. I never would have looked twice at Spanish Fly if not for the swatch! Thank you.

Icon was my shade around 2000! I can’t believe it’s back finally! Now all MAC needs to do is bring back Kid Kat lipstick and I’ll be in nostalgia heaven.

I swatched these yesterday. Shrimpton is too light and too yellow-ish for me. Bronx was beautiful and tempted me, but I successfully talked myself out of it. I felt it was a bit too gray for my skin tone. It is a retro matte, but didn’t seem to be as dry as other MAC retro mattes, like Ruby Woo.

I picked up Spanish Fly and I like it pretty well on my neutral-olive light-medium complexion. It turns out to look really good under OFRA Emerald City which is also semi-sheer. I’ve been looking for something to pair with Emerald City and this works much better than anything else I’ve tried. And the formulas play nicely with each other. If you want a “wearable” olive green lipstick, the combo is great.
