MAC Bad ‘n’ Bare, Derriere, Pink Power Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

MAC Bad ‘n’ Bare Lipstick ($18.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a soft, light brown with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had rich color coverage that adhered evenly to my lips with a smooth, fluid stroke. The texture was denser, slightly firmer in the tube but glided across my lips without dragging. It was comfortable to wear over the four and a half hours it lasted for, though the formula was neither drying nor hydrating on me.

MAC Lipstick comes in a variety of finishes, and the pigmentation and wear tend to be dependent on the finish. The sheer finishes, like Lustres, tend to wear for only a couple of hours and have sheer coverage (as designed) and are non-drying. Some of the original Matte shades have a stiffer, drier formula, while newer ones have a more velvety, silicone-feel to them, and the latter are creamier, more comfortable to wear, and easier to apply, but most Matte shades are quite pigmented and long-wearing, though some are drying. The Amplified and Satin finishes tend to have good pigmentation, lightly creamy to moderately creamy consistencies with a bit of shine, and moderate to long wear with deeper, richer shades wearing longer. The Frost and Metallic finishes have the most variance between shades with coverage ranging from semi-sheer to opaque with average wear and non-drying to slightly drying formulas. All MAC lipsticks are vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.

 

MAC Derriere Lipstick ($18.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The lipstick had a denser feel to the bullet initially, but it was smooth, lightly creamy, and applied easily across my lips without dragging. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer that sat well on my lips. It stayed on nicely for four and a half hours and was slightly hydrating over time.

MAC Pink Power Lipstick ($18.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a soft, medium pink with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had medium color payoff that didn’t build up much beyond that. The texture was thin, emollient but not creamy (almost like a firmer lip-balm) that was comfortable to wear but didn’t feel moisturizing. It applied somewhat evenly and didn’t sink into my lip lines as much as I anticipated, but the product could have gone on better overall. This shade lasted well for three and a half hours on me.
