DavidBlond

MAC DavidBlond The Blonds Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium pink with soft, warm undertones and a lightly pearlized finish. It had medium color coverage, which was somewhat buildable to semi-opaque coverage if desired, though it was a Lustre finish, so the sheerness was expected. The texture was lightweight, thin, and moderately emollient–it felt creamier than most Lustres, actually. The color applied fairly evenly but slid around a bit while worn. It wore well for three hours and was lightly hydrating to me.

PhillipeBlond

MAC PhillipeBlond The Blonds Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark red with cool, blue undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented and had a smooth, lightly creamy texture that glided across my lips without dragging. The color went on evenly and stayed out of my lip lines, and it did not bleed or feather on me over time. It wore well for over six hours, left a faint stain behind, and was neither drying nor hydrating on me.

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

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!

These look super nice, although these shades have been done to death by MAC. I still really like both. David Blonde being the most tempting of the two, because it is everything that Sunny Seoul has failed to be for me.

First, your look in the PhillipeBlond swatches (minus the cheek color – I’d go pale ) is exactly something i would do. Love it! 🙂

Second, the lip color PhillipeBlond is my jam, but I probably have a half-dozen reds just like it.
