Once I lost count of the number of lipsticks I own (I stopped somewhere around 100), I figured it’s time to go on a no-buy. I was doing quite well and was about to give myself a pat on the back until I got to play with the new MAC Pro LongWear Lipcremes ($16) – I couldn’t help but caved!
The Lipcremes come in 12 wearable colors that range from your everyday nudes and pinks to bright reds, browns and even a metallic purple. They go on very creamy with just a touch of shine but once you blot or let it dry naturally, they turn completely matte. They do have amazing staying power and lasted even after a meal – but definitely not up to 12 hours as claimed.
One thing I do really really like though, is how they manage to give great color payoff with a matte finish but feels totally non-drying, even on my constantly chapped lips. The new, sleek packaging also reminds me of a smaller, more compact version of MAC Pro Paint Sticks and is so much better than the regular lipsticks. Would definitely love to see more colors in the future!
The colors I picked up are:
* Till Tomorrow – A nude brown that screams Angelina Jolie on my lips.
* Unlimited – A muted rosy color that looks like my lips but better.
* Good To Go – A super loud orange just like the one you see on the Marc Jacobs Spring 2011 show. I love bright orange lipsticks and this is by far one of the brightest that I have seen.
So what do you think? What’s your favorite color? Lip swatches to come next week!
