MAC Bare Bling & Bosom Friend Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

MAC Bare Bling Lipstick is a light peach with warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, though it didn’t apply as evenly as it could have, and separated along my deeper lip lines. It appeared slightly pinker when actually applied to me–I think that’s the influence of the faint translucency. The consistency was lightweight, creamy enough not to tug on my lips but not enough to slide around during wear. It stayed on well for three and a half hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

MAC Bosom Friend Lipstick is a light, rosy beige with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. The consistency was lightweight, lightly tacky, and melted slightly as I applied it to my lips, so initially there was a touch of drag but not none after a few seconds of use. It had good color coverage that went on evenly and didn’t emphasize my lip lines; there was a smidgen of product that sank into my lip lines but not enough that it was noticeable from a normal viewing distance. It wore well for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating on me.
