Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street…or at sea! Packaged in blue and white stripes, it’s a match to everything Hey, Sailor!
This review is for the 4 limited-edition Lipstick colors releasing with MAC’s upcoming Hey, Sailor! Collection. This post includes photographs and swatches of the following colors:
- Red Racer (Satin): Bright yellow red
- To Catch a Sailor (Frost): Highly frosted tan
- Salute! (Amplified): Neutral peach
- Sail La Vie (Satin): Bright mid-tone orange
These lipsticks come in standard MAC packaging. The tubes are made of plastic and can easily be taken on-the-go. The tube is decorated with blue nautical stripes.
Red Racer is a bright, classic, warm-toned red. The pigmentation is intense and opaque. The formula is creamy, emollient, and moisturizing.
To Catch a Sailor is a tan color with a silver frost finish. This color is also creamy, emollient, intense in pigmentation, and fairly moisturizing.
Salute! is a pale peach. The formula is creamy and emollient, but the pigmentation isn’t quite opaque or even.
Sail La Vie is an intensely-pigmented, opaque orange-based red. The formula is emollient and creamy.
These are impressive lipstick colors and formulas, with the exception of Salute!, which leaves a slightly streaky finish.
Ease of Use: 9.5/10
All 4 colors glide onto the lips easily due to their creamy formula. You do need to apply more precisely because of the intense colors.
Everything in the Hey, Sailor! collection is $1.00 more than normally-price MAC items because of the special limited-edition packaging.
