MAC Boyfriend Stealer Lipstick
MAC Boyfriend Stealer Lipstick ($16.50 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “deep blackened plum” with a Cremesheen finish. It’s a purple-wine with a glossy sheen. MAC Dramatic Encounter is browner. Chanel L’Impatiente is redder and matte. MAC Rebel is more of a berry, brighter, not as vampy. Thierry Mugler Dream is slightly lighter. Urban Decay Apocalypse is purpler. Dolce & Gabbana Lust is purpler, browner.
It settles into lip lines, and it looks a bit more like a stain than a lip color. I think it would look better applied, blotted, and left as a residual stain or else topped with a gloss on top, because it can look somewhat uneven on its own. The consistency has a slick feel, but I still find that Cremesheens kind of drag on the lips; I think it might be that the texture is on the thinner side. It wore for three and a half hours, and it was noticeably drying–which is par for the course with my experience wearing Cremesheens. I know other readers have better luck and find them hydrating, so consider how your lips react to the finish.
