Red Haring

MAC Red Haring Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a bright, medium cherry red with cool, blue undertones and a semi-matte to satin finish. The lipstick had a lightweight, lightly emollient texture that glided on without tugging but never slid around during wear.

It was richly pigmented with coverage that went on evenly and stayed on well for over six hours. The product left a stain behind and felt slightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.1 oz. - $190.00 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.

St Marks Yellow

MAC St. Marks Yellow Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium-dark yellow with warmer undertones and a frosted finish. It had semi-sheer, somewhat buildable color payoff paired with a lightweight, slightly thinner texture that had enough slip to glide on without tugging.

The downside to the product was that it was very prone to catching around texture imperfections (like flakes) and getting into my lip lines, so it never looked even. It lasted for four hours and was non-drying.

It is a charitable product with 100% of the selling price going to charity, so if you’re someone who likes to mix and match their lip colors, this could be a fun primary color to play with.

Canal Blue

MAC Canal Blue Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a vivid, medium-dark cobalt blue with strong, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied fairly evenly and wasn’t prone to catching on lip texture or settling into my lip lines.

The texture was moderately firm in the tube but not stiff to work with. It wore well for five hours, left a purplish stain behind, and felt lightly hydrating over time.

Oh dear….that yellow is quite ugly and that blue could’ve been tweaked a bit. I see why Ulta is only offering the red shade for sale. It caught my eye, but I can see now it’s a big “tomatoe-y” for me.

Canal blue is such a good shade of blue. Nice color to play around with or wear on its own if you’re much bolder than I am. Aside of the “yellow”, it’s a nice collection. If the yellow were more a little more primary and pigmented, that’d be a win too.

I love that red!
I’m absolutely going to buy it, it’s perfect. And it’s a Viva Glam, I try to buy as many of the releases I can, after all the money comes to a good charity.
I like the blue, but can’t wear that type of blue and anything yellow makes me look very, very sick. Still it’s fun to see interesting colours.
