MAC Tsk Tsk! & Wagasa Twirl Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

MAC Tsk Tsk! Lipstick ($18.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool, bluish undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a dense, slightly firmer texture, though it didn’t tug painfully but needed a moment to warm up on against my lips. The color applied evenly and didn’t settle too noticeably into my lip lines. It wore well for five hours, left a faint stain behind, and was neither drying nor 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.

MAC Wagasa Twirl Lipstick ($18.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a muted, light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. The texture was slightly drier, though it didn’t tug or pull at my lips as I applied it. It seemed prone to separating along my deeper lip lines but wasn’t noticeable in person until after three hours of wear. The color payoff was nearly opaque in a single layer, and it stayed on well for four and a half hours on me. The formula felt neither drying nor hydrating over time.
