Monochromatic meets metallic in a colour collection created with the M•A•C Pro in mind. A nude palette, defined by the creamy, rich tones of Amplified and Satin formulas, pairs to perfection with a metallic range of frosted plums and berries. Each features a selection of four Lipsticks with corresponding shades of Eye Shadow and a Powder Blush.
This review is for the Lipstick in Pre-Raphaelite, which released with MAC’s Nudes & Metallics collection as part of the Metallics segment. Pre-Raphaelite is a deep metallic dirty berry.
Pre-Raphaelite is a deep, brick and berry-toned red with a low-intensity metallic sheen. This shade has strong color and a semi-opaque finish. It can go on a little streaky at first, so you’ll want to blend and layer to get even coverage.
The formula is neither drying nor moisturizing. The product lasts for up to three (3) hours on the lips before needing touching-up. The deep pigment in this shade leaves behind a slight stain on your lips.
Though this is a dark color, the berry undertone and metallic quality help “brighten” it up somewhat, so that it’s not so vampy-looking.
