MAC Cosmetics Wash and Dry Lipstick in Steam Heat


Isn't this MAC lipstick a beauty?

This is just from a recent collection but of course, like pancakes, before it even hit the stores here in the country, it's sold out. BUT I found an online shop that has some limited edition makeup items you might be interested in. It's called @all_about_authentic. Click here to go directly to the IG shop. I'll post a screenshot below on what items you can find.

Now, on to the lipstick!




First of all, packaging is beyond words. It's super gorgeous. They're really killing it with their limited edition items aren't they? I guess that's why they're harder to find. Consistent MAC vanilla scent, close feel and sleek as always. It's definitely a scene stealer when you reapply your lipstick in the powder room. Yes, I've had stares from people in the wash room looking at the lipstick and the color on my lips. #agaweksena

This is a red lipstick that somehow turns... orange-red orange-red?? Lol. It's red, but it's described as a vivid-yellow-red, so I guess that's where I'm getting the orange hues from. I definitely notice the yellow undertones because I'm more used to bluish-red lipsticks and darker colors. 

It has a satin finish which is actually a lip-saver because if you've ever tried MAC's mattes, then I'm sure your lips have died at some point in your life. Think more pigmented than amplified and drier upon application. Not shiny and not matte, just somewhere in between with a natural finish. This lipstick is quite moisturizing for me and it's very pigmented. Although, I like swiping it 2-3 times just so I can get the color I want and I'm used to. 

Do you have to apply this asap after eating? Nope. I've asked my boyfriend a lot of times already and he always said "it's all good" so I found that it stayed for about 5-6 hours. Eating oily food would maybe make the longevity 3-4 hours tops? And do note that it transfers on glasses, straws, mugs, cheeks. Lol. But yes, because it's more on the satin side, don't expect this to be kiss proof as this lipstick doesn't make your lips dry like the Sahara Desert. This lipstick also stains your lips but sometimes, the outlines would be more prominent, so lip liner would be key. If you want to make this lipstick more long lasting, apply lip liner first. 

All in all, great lipstick. Warm-red that has yellow undertones and it's great for everyday and even on date nights. It's a lipstick that you can wear that would automatically add plus points to your white shirt and jeans. Lakas maka ganda!
