Ever since I discovered my older sister’s liptint, I fell totally in love with it! It was the reason why I never really gotten around into using lipsticks. I tried it before but the feeling of lipstick💄on my lips just feels very weird and heavy and tacky.It is very safe to assume that I have zero lipstick in my possession. But it all changed when my brother has thought of the brilliant idea of gifting me one 😅
Price: Given as a gift. Must range from ₱700 – ₱1000
Where to get: MAC Physical Stores
MAC Cosmetics is known for its collaborations with famous people. The product that I will be reviewing is their collaboration with Patrick Starrr, a famous Filipino-American makeup artist based in the US.
The color theme of Patrick Starrr’s collection with MAC Cosmetics last year is holiday red. My brother got me the shade Spank Me Santa which is close to brick brown color. He said its because he noticed that all my colors are either red or pink only. To be honest, I don’t think I look good with any other colors which is why I rarely veer away from reds or pinks.
However, my brother thoughtfully gifted me this so I’m very grateful to him ♥
The signature of Patrick Starrr has been included in their packaging of the lipstick.
Pretty simple but the ambiance it gives off when you have it on your hand is quite enriching actually. It gives off the vibes of being high quality with just the packaging.
SWATCH and STAYING POWER
I just did one swipe but the color pigmentation is rich already! It feels moisturizing and non-drying on the lips so I feel really comfortable wearing it. It also does not feel sticky or heavy at all 👍
I did a swatch comparison between straight from the tube application vs with foundation on. The upper part is the one without foundation. If you will observe it closely, my skin lines is very visible on the upper portion. But, of course, with foundation it fiiled up those tiny lines giving it a smoother application. But color-wise, it has no difference and stayed true to its color.
This lipstick is good on me for 4-5 hours. It is water-proof and transfer-proof but since I do not care about my lips while dining, I usually apply after meals. Not a worry since I want to build a habit of retouching my sunscreen every after lunch. So it’s not a hassle for me to touch up on my lip makeup ☺
What I LIKE:
• Highly pigmented
• Non-drying and non-sticky
• Lightweight on lips
What I DON’T LIKE:
• Limited physical stores of MAC Cosmetics in South Luzon
Packaging – ★★★★☆
Effectivity – ★★★★☆
Ease of Use – ★★★★☆
Overall – ★★★★☆
Probably! 🤔 This lipstick made me change my mind about lipsticks being all tacky and hard to apply. But this Patrick Starrr’s lipstick totally changed my perspective about lipstick application in general. I will absolutely venture more about this particular lip makeup 💋
