MAC Asterisk Kissing Stars Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.1 oz.) has a blackened purple base with a mixture of bluish-violet, purple, and lighter blue sparkle and glitter throughout. It was appalling bad in application, and it lived up to... none of its claims; it didn't evenly distribute color, it wasn't opaque, and the texture was smooth.
I don't know who let this one escape the factory, but it's not a real surprise as every comparable shade (and they're all quite close in color/composition) is about as poorly done. As cool as glittery lipstick has the potential to be, let's dial down releasing shades not out of alpha testing.
It had semi-sheer coverage that didn't build up well, as the more I tried to build it up, the more uneven the underlying color looked and clumpier the sparkles/glittery bits became, which resulted in an visibly uneven, more noticeably textured (though I wouldn't call it gritty or painfully rough) the product looked on my lips. To add insult to injury, the color seeped into my lip lines, didn't adhere to my inner lip area, and had worn down within two and a half hours of wear. I guess the nicest thing I could say about the formula was that it didn't dry my lips out.
