MAC PRO LongWear Lipcreme Reviews and Swatches

September 24, 2010

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 – 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.
The colors I picked up were:

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.

Other colors include:

Made To Las, a deep plumy brown (Frost)
Sweet Ever After, a copper (Frost)
Faithfully Yours, a blackened dirty purple (Cream)
Goes and Goes, a blue violet (Cream)
Love Forever!, a bright blue pink (Cream)
Perpetual Flame, a pink cranberry (Cream)
Overtime, a light baby pink (Cream)
Extended Play, a blackened brick red (Cream)
Prolong, a true red (Cream)

The lipsticks went on very creamy with just a touch of shine but once you blot or let it dry naturally, they turned completely matte. They also had amazing staying power and lasted even after a meal – but definitely not up to 12 hours as claimed.

One thing I really really liked though, was how they managed to give great color payoff with a matte finish but felt totally non-drying, even on my constantly chapped lips. The new, sleek packaging also reminded 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!

    I bought Overtime. 🙂 the color appears to be much more lighter than I thought but it’s very matte like you said. And I love the packaging…it’s so SLIM! I want to go back to buy more hehe
