MAC Daphne Guinness Pro Longwear Lipcremes

Availability: MAC Stores & Online
Price: $17.00 each

Company’s Description

Lightweight texture, creamy finish and comfortable longwear combine in this has-it-all pro-class lip colour. Slick in use, applies without need of a top coat- and still lasts up to 12 hours. Won’t feather or transfer, and the colour stays true. Helps lips stay soft and hydrated.

This review is for the 4 Pro Longwear Lipcremes that come with MAC’s upcoming Daphne Guinness Collection. The colors are as follows:

  • Approaching Storm: Deep rose
  • Seasoned Plum: Mid-tone lavender
  • Red Dwarf: Blue pink
  • Warp Speed: Light silver


free shipping on all orders of $50 or more at phil

Packaging: 9/10

Pro Longwear lipsticks come in matte, cylindrical, plastic tubes.

Quality: 9/10

MAC claims that these lipsticks last for 12 hours–an unrealistic estimate of this product’s longevity. My experience with Pro Longwear Lipccremes is that they do last much longer than regular lipsticks, but not longer than about 6 hours. And, of course, if you eat and drink, expect faster fading.

This formula for these 4 colors doesn’t seem to be as creamy as previously, but this may also because it is very cold this time of year. The formula does dry out the lips a little over time. The colors are all opaque and pigmented, save for Warp Speed, which is a translucent white/silver.

The good thing about the 3 darker colors is that they stain the lips, so even after the product itself wears off, your lips still retain a tint of color.

Ease of Use: 9/10

I found a bit of tugging on the skin because of the less-than-creamy consistency. You can apply the lipstick and then wipe it off to leave a slight stain on the lips, or you can build layers for a strong color.

Price: 9.25/10

These cost $17.00 each and contain 3.6 g of product. Regular MAC lipsticks are $14.50 and contain 3 g of product. You get slightly more product for your money with the Pro Longwear lipsticks.

Final Grade

91/100

    Thanks so much for these swatches! Do you happen to know what lip color she is wearing in the promo pics? I must have it.

    • Allura says:

      Knockout, but I’m positive that it’s mixed with other things. Promo pictures are almost never purely made up of the colors/product of the collection they go with.

  2. I like Warp Speed because of the name and how it can be cool to use it as a base for diff. lipgloss colors. 🙂

  3. Lisa B. says:

    …Just not a fan of any of those colors. Red Dwarf is my favorite if I had to pick one, but I don’t really like any of them. I can’t think of any good use for Warp Speed except layered over another color and in that case, a touch of light gloss or a standard light pink shimmer would work about as well.
