Bi-ceptual

MAC Bi-ceptual Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium peachy beige with warm undertones and a natural finish. It had semi-sheer color coverage that went on evenly and, despite its lightness in color, did not pull into my lip lines much! It was a Lustre finish, so the coverage level was expected to be sheerer. The texture was lightweight, thin but not clingy, and had enough slip not to drag when I applied it from the tube. It wore well for two hours and was non-drying.

Formula Overview

$19.50/0.1 oz. - $195.00 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.

Mascu-linity

MAC Mascu-linity Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium beige-brown with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable color coverage that went on evenly but had a tendency to sit in my lip lines a bit. It had a Lustre finish, so the coverage level was expected to be sheerer. The consistency was thin but not clingy, and while it wasn’t hydrating, it didn’t dry my lips out either. This shade stayed on for about two hours.

Testosterone

MAC Testosterone Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium pink-coral with a touch of fine, gold pearl. It had semi-sheer, buildable color coverage (to about semi-opaque) with a thin, lightly emollient consistency that went on evenly and did not drag on the lips. It had a Lustre finish, so the coverage level was expected to be sheerer.. The wear time was almost three hours, which was longer than the standard Lustre for me, and it was non-drying.

Thank you! Ordered bi-ceptual, it might finally satisfy my hunt for the LE Mac Classical (circa 2009!) that I just finished up last month. I’ve been hunting for years!! fingers crossed.

They seem to have *possibly* improved their Lustre formula! But other than maybe Testosterone, these really aren’t floating my boat.

I am really surprised at how pretty these are!!! I thought just by looking at bi-ceptual that it would totally be a color that would wash you out but it’s so wearable. It helps that it’s sheer but it gives you a nice wash of color. It may be something to consider for me

I love MAC’s lipsticks and any new colours they bring out is something I’d definitely want to check out right away! Unfortunately nothing is standing out in this collection so hopefully we’ll see something a bit more exciting!

On the german mac website masculinity is marked as retro matte
I only ordered it because of the matte finish. I had to order “blind” because it came out on the first of march here in Germany and I did not have your swatches yet.
Then I think I will return it, I do not need a nude lipstick which is a sheer Lustre finish.
