MAC Joie de Vivre, Vanity Bonfire, My Little Secret Love Me Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

MAC Joie de Vivre Love Me Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark berry with subtle, cool undertones and a cream finish. The lipstick had nearly opaque color payoff in a single stroke, which applied evenly and smoothly without tugging on my lips during application. The consistency was lightweight, emollient without being slippery, and thin without being clingy or prone to emphasizing imperfections on my lips (like flakes). It stayed on nicely for six hours, left behind a pinkish stain, and was lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.1 oz. – $190.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a “lighter-than-air texture” with “all-day moisturization” paired with “intense color and soft shine.” They had semi-opaque to fully opaque color coverage in a single layer, and most of the shades applied evenly and smoothly to my lips without emphasizing lip texture or sinking noticeably into my lip lines.

The texture was very lightweight, lightly creamy without too much slip, yet there was a distinctive shine to the finish. The luminosity wore down within an hour or so of wear. The formula seemed like a cross between Amplified and Cremesheens, yet there was no tackiness, and the Love Me formula was much lighter and thinner (without being clingy). The wear has ranged from three to six hours and has been lightly to moderately hydrating. They had a sweet, vanilla scent (typical of the brand) but no discernible taste.

MAC Vanity Bonfire Love Me Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a bright, medium pink with warmer undertones and a cream finish. It had good color coverage in one pass, though it wasn’t opaque and wasn’t the type of shade that built up to full coverage due to the more emollient quality of its texture. The lipstick had a touch of streaking along the edges, though it wasn’t noticeable to my eye in person. It had a lightly creamy, thinner feel going on, though it was comfortable and lightly moisturizing over the four hours it wore well for.
