Feelin’ Sedimental

MAC Feelin’ Sedimental Lipstick ($19.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a light peach with moderate, warm undertone with a satiny sheen. It was more balanced between pink and peach, though it may appear peachier on cooler skin tones (as it appears to lean slightly pink against my warmer undertones). The texture was dense but creamy enough to apply without dragging and delivered even, opaque coverage in one layer. For the lightness of the shade, it went on rather well, and the lack of slip on helped keep it from settling more and more into lip lines, though there was a bit of settling initially. It stayed on nicely for four hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$19.50/0.1 oz. – $195.00 Per Ounce

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.

The Naturalist

MAC The Naturalist Lipstick ($19.50 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium peach with warm, muted orange undertones and a natural sheen. It has a Lustre finish, which is the brand’s sheerer coverage product, so the semi-sheer pigmentation was just as expected. The texture was lightweight, thin, and moderately emollient, so it was comfortable to apply and to wear. The color went on evenly for the most part, and there was just a touch of product in my deeper lip lines but not enough that it was noticeable from a normal viewing distance. It wore well for three hours and was neither drying nor hydrating on me.
