Samantha Ravndahl

MAC Samantha Ravndahl Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a light-medium pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had medium, buildable coverage–up to semi-opaque, which is in line with the Cremesheen finish formula. The consistency was lightweight, creamy without being heavy, and applied evenly across the lips. There was a touch of color that pulled into my lip lines, but the glossiness of the finish made it less apparent at a normal viewing distance. It wore well for four hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating over time.

This shade is a collaboration between MAC and YouTuber Samantha Ravndahl, which launches April 22nd and will only be available in Canada. There are several other shades (with other collaborators) that will release to specific regions: see full press release here. I only have the U.S. and Canadian shades!

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.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Of the 3 North American releases, I do love this one! Still not the world’s most inspired shade, but I love its softness and glossiness for spring/ summer! This is the clear winner!

Sigh! I love Sam, and I want to support her. But this shade would look terrible on me, it would wash me out and make my teeth look awful πŸ™

It’s quite ironic that for all the times I’ve liked things not available in Canada, there’s one available only in Canada and I dislike it intensely for myself. It’s exactly the colour of my lips, or even a bit lighter and I can’t carry that with my colouring.

I like the finish on this one but it might be too light for me for an everyday color and not quite right for a nude either.

I’m happy that you swatched this. I have been really wanting it and seeing the color on you has only confirmed that I need it. Do you have any recommendations for the best way for someone based in the U.S. to get an authentic tube?

I know Samantha was trying to get her Twitter followers who can purchase in Canada to help out U.S. followers, so maybe check there?
