For a lasting pop of color on the lips, I am really digging the new MAC PRO Longwear Lipstain Marker from the Art Supplies Collection!
The PRO Longwear Lipstain Marker comes in a chubby marker packaging so you can literally draw the color on like a pen.
There are a total of 9 colors available, most of which are red or brown-based and they all showed up very similar on my lips.
• Full of Flare – Bright yellow-coral
• Stylesetter – Hot pink
• A Classic – Rose red
• Purposefully Red – Dirty red-coral
• Modern Mocha – Light brown
• Point of View – Light neutral
• Tomorrow’s Coral – Mid-tone blue-red
• Runway Ripened – Berry plum-red
• Sunset – Coral brown
Since I ❤ pink lips, I was set on getting the only pink in the collection, Stylesetter. However, it turned out to be a disappointment and showed up a lot darker with barely any pink to it. I ended up getting Purposefully Red, a beautiful pinup red. Would love to see more pinks and lighter colors in the future.
Pigmentation-wise, the Lipstain Marker was on the sheer side but very buildable. You can easily create a natural stain to an intense, defined look like the one you see on the promo picture.
The formula also felt non-drying and uber lightweight. Plus the felt-tip applicator gave such great precision I could finally say bye bye to lip liner.
As for the wearability, let’s just say this stuff IS long-lasting! While the markers were not completely waterproof, they did stain pretty badly to the point where it would require an oil-based remover to get the color off completely. I learnt my lesson when it took over 2 days for the swatches on my hand to wash off completely
The only con I could think of was that the colors could show up very differently depending on your natural lip color (I still can’t believe Stylesetter didn’t work out for me – sadness!!) I highly suggest you try these on before you purchase.
Other than that, the MAC PRO Longwear Lipstain Marker are AWESOMEEEE!
