MAC Styledriven: Pro Longwear Lipcremes (Part 1)

MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme ($17.00 for 0.12 oz.) are a long-wearing lipstick with a “lightweight texture, creamy finish, and comfortable long-wear.” It claims to wear for up to twelve hours without feathering or transferring–and “helps lips stay soft and hydrated.” This formula originally debuted last year and again with Styledriven. You can read my in-depth review here, as I’m only going to summarize the finer points in this post. All shades from this collection are permanent.

The shades featured in this post are: Dress It Up (light blue-pink), Endless Drama (deep berry blue-red), Extended Play (dirty red, yellow undertone), Good to Go (loudmouth orange), Love Forever (bright blue-pink), and Positively Dashing (mid-tone berry blue-red).

I don’t get close to twelve hours of wear with this lipstick; I get great wear and substantially longer wear than the average lipstick, but it’s not twelve hours. The darker shades–of course–wear longer and look better after seven or eight hours than lighter shades, but both do a solid job of managing to wear for six to eight hours and getting through eating/drinking. This is the major source of lost points for this product, because MAC claims up to twelve and in reality, I get up to eight (on average) before I feel it’s time to reapply.

The formula delivers most opaque color coverage with a creamy, glide-on formula that doesn’t feel too slick but never stiff or dry. Most shades have a semi-matte finish, so there is a little shine. These are vanilla-scented but have no detectable taste. Instead of your typical MAC lipstick, they’re more circular, which may take some adjustments in application; if you have thinner lips, it may be a little frustrating.

I wouldn’t say it’s ultra moisturizing, but after wearing one for eight hours, my lips feel about par for the course; not dried out but would appreciate some lip balm. I didn’t experience any feathering or bleeding lip color, but they are not transfer-resistant (I did the kiss test, no dice). There is less transfer than the average lipstick but still a fair amount.

Yayyy you’re reviewing the collection. I hadn’t seen it on the website and I was wondering if you were or not. Thank you for your hard work :). I’m loving Positively Dashing.

Christine you look so beautiful with every single one of them. thanks again for your hard work, i know you are in top of your game, i follow you on twitter. i love dress it up, is not as pink pepto as viva glam gaga,now that one never worked on me, eventhough it was so pretty.

I looooove Dress It Up and have been wanting Love Forever well…forever! I’m really excited to see the lipglosses from this line. I rarely wear gloss anymore because I just end up smearing it off as soon as I take a sip of water. =/

I doubt it, given they are at a higher price point. I would call your store, as I don’t have a book of MAC’s policies or anything 🙂
