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