Dearly Beloved

MAC Dearly Beloved Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good color coverage with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that glided across the lips without tugging. The lipstick wore well for five hours, was neither drying nor hydrating, and comfortable to wear.

This shade will be available on February 9th online and in select stores.

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.

Thunder Kiss

MAC Thunder Kiss Vamplify ($21.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a deep, reddish brown with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightweight, creamy consistency that spread easily but, unfortunately, did not apply that evenly. The gloss had a tendency to settle into my lip lines, and the color itself was never quite even. On me, the product lasted for five hours and was lightly hydrating while worn. I would recommend layering this over another product or using a lip liner underneath it to help improve its appearance.

This shade will be available on February 9th online and in select stores.

I love both so much!! The gloss looks so smooth and soft on the lips, compared to all of the matte matte matte we’ve been seeing!

I might just get that lipstick, but I already own MAC Whirl and it looks very similar so I kinda feel like this won’t be an addition to my collection… You didn’t mention Whirl as a dupe though, so I could be completely wrong. Anyways, I’m in love with the color!

Yeah I think I just thought so because I’m very pale, so Whirl looks about as dark on me as Dearly Beloved does on you. I guess I can still check it out in store then! 🙂

DB seems more complex than the dupes. Very nice. Hey, Canadians, what is the significance of the name for your chanteuse? As to Thunder Kiss, think I’ll stick with the vlg. Love those.

Dearly Beloved is just gorgeous!!! Not so sure I need it, as it reminds me of Maybelline Gone Greige for some reason. But sooo tempting!

Dearly Beloved looks nice in the photos but is it similar to So Select? I have So Select (and a backup since it was LE!) so I’d hate to get something similar to what I already have. Thanks!

I am very interested if the lipstick colour will fit
It looks really good but I often have problems with brown shades, they just do not look good on me too often.

These looks amazing. I love grunge-ish browns! My Mac Whirl looks soo much like DB irl. Your swatch is kinda off compared to my actual lipstick. Maybe i got a bad batch… : /
But, that will not stop me, i’m still going to buy both. i just wish i didn’t have to wait for 02/09.
