MAC Lip Haul Up Close & Personal Lip Set
MAC Lip Haul Up Close & Personal Lip Set is a new, limited edition set exclusive to Nordstrom (now sold out online, you may still find it in stores). It includes six, full-sized products; three lipsticks and three lipglosses. In general, lighter, creamier Lipglasses tend to apply unevenly or sink into lip lines, while the lipsticks were decent but not particularly noteworthy.
Shhhh is a light-medium, pink-coral with a cream finish. It had a milkier quality to the color, which resulted in a poor application of product: uneven, splotchy, and every line (and then some!) was filled noticeably with product. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer paired with a moderately sticky, light-medium thick texture. This shade stayed on well for four hours and was hydrating over time.
Lust is a light-medium, coral-brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had good color coverage in a single layer, though it did not apply evenly and sank noticeably into my lip lines. The texture was smooth, moderately tacky, and thicker, though it wasn’t thick to the point where it actually felt heavy. It wore well for four and a half hours and was moisturizing over time.
Indoor Voices is a medium-dark coral with strong, warm undertones and a sparkling finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied evenly and spread well across my lips with good dispersion of the shimmer/sparkle. The consistency was light-medium in thickness, moderately tacky, but it didn’t feel heavy to wear. There was a bit of product that sank into my deeper lip lines, though it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. It lasted nicely for four and a half hours and was hydrating over time.
Care to Share
Care to Share is a medium-dark, brownish peach with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered evenly to my lips but pulled away along my lip lines, so it appeared “cracked” at times. The texture was dense without being too firm, so it still glided across my lips without tugging on them, and had enough slip that it was comfortable to wear. It stayed on well for four hours and was non-drying over time.
Dahhlinggg is a pale, peachy beige with warmer undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage in one pass, which applied a bit unevenly and sank into some of my lip lines. The texture was lightweight, thin without being clingy, and had moderate slip with a touch of tackiness. It wore well for three and a half hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating over time.
Look Both Ways
Look Both Ways is a muted, medium-dark peach with moderate, warm undertones and a cream finish. The pigmentation was nearly opaque, while the texture was lightly creamy, smooth, and had enough slip that it didn’t tug on my lips but didn’t slide around during wear. It lasted nicely for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating while worn.
