MAC Fleur d’Coral Lipstick is a light, pink-leaning coral with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had a “Lustre” finish, which is the brand’s sheerer (on purpose) coverage formula; this particular shade had semi-sheer coverage that was buildable to medium coverage with a second layer. The texture was emollient, lightweight, and thin but didn’t feel clingy, and there was a touch of product that sank into my deeper lip lines but wasn’t enough to be noticeable in person (just in the close-up photos). It lasted well for two and a half hours and was non-drying over time.
MAC Sugar Sweet Cameo Lipstick is a brighter, light-medium pink-coral with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had rich color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly in a single layer without tugging my lips during application. The texture was dense without being overly thick or too firm in the tube. There was a smidgen of product that sank into my deeper lip lines but wasn’t apparent to the eye in person. It stayed on nicely for four and a half hours and felt non-drying.
MAC Yash Lipstick is a light, muted brown with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, though it seemed to separate along my deeper lip lines due to the formula being a bit creamier and thicker overall. This is an existing shade, and I don’t recall having the separation issue in prior applications, but I didn’t feel like my lips were in bad condition (if anything, my lips would have been quite smooth by the time I applied this shade!). It wore well for four and a half hours and felt a touch hydrating over time.
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.
