Hayya Lovely's. Today I thought it would be a good idea to do a post all about MAC lipstick Formulas. MAC lipsticks are my favorite but there is some formulas I'm not such a great fan of. I thought this might help some people that are not used to the MAC lipsticks.
MAC do 7 different formulas. I have tried all of them except for Frost as I don't like a frosty lip. I also have not tried Satin but I really want to.
Lets get into the formulas.
Lustre - A sheer glossy finish which is build-able. Luster lasts about 2-3 hours on my lips but can dry them out as they're not that mosturisting. I only own one lipstick that has this formula as it's not a formula that I like much. The one I have is from the Surf Baby collection that came out last year and it's called Naturally Eccentric (LE).
Popular shade- Freckltone
Cremesheen - This Formula is one of the most popular ones. It's a medium coverage and it has a very creamy feel to it which does not dry out the lips. This formula lasts up to 5 hours on my lips. I have a few different creme sheen as I do really like them. I have Creme Cup which is a neutral pink, Innocence Beware (LE) which is a neutral peach/pink and I also have Brave Red which is a red.
Popular shade- Creme Cup
Amplified - My all-time favourite formula. So creamy and hydrating which are very pigmented so be careful, they do dry to a semi-matte finish . Lasts up to 6 hours on my lips. Most of my lipsticks are Amplified as I just always go for the formula as they feel the best and I think look the best on the lips. I have 5 lipsticks with the finish: Viva Glam Gaga 2 (LE) Brown/peach neutral, Saint Germain - a total barbie pink, Vegas Volt - one of my favorite lipsticks, it's a nice perfect coral. Impassioned - another one of my favorites, it's a bright pink and last but not least, Up The Amp - my new favorite lipstick, it's a purple one and I love it.
Popular shade's- Impashioned, Vegas Volt, Girl About Town, Up The Amp, Morange
Matte - My first lipstick was a Matte. I love the finish but it can really dry out the lips. It's very pigmented and creamy when applied. I only have one Matte finish lipstick and it's Candy Yum Yum (LE) But I love this colour and wear it all the time, it's a super duper bright pink.
Popular shade- Ruby Woo
Glaze - One I'm not a great fan of. Glaze is a sheer finish and is quite glossy, but also feels quite creamy. Only lasts about 2 hour on my lips. I don't have one on me right now as I need to re-purchase Hue. It's not that I don't like this formula as I love Hue, but Hue is the only one I really like out of the glaze formulas. Hue is sheer but it gives a nice everyday lip colour.
Popular shade- Hue
I hope this post helped some of you. My MAC lipstick giveaway has ended and I will announce the winner tonight on Twitter and Facebook, and make a blog post tomorrow.
