I’m so excited to write this review. I’ve been a Mac Lover for years and have tons of Mac lipsticks. However, I’ve never done a review/swatch on them because I haven’t purchased any new lipstick shades since I started blogging. But that changed as soon as I saw the new Mach Patent Polish Lip Pencils! Looks like Mac is jumping on board with Revlon and Cover Girl with the jumbo lip sticks.
Normally, before I purchase any Mac lip product, I automatically heard over to Temptalia’s website to see Christine’s swatches. But this time she didn’t get them early and I couldn’t find any one else with swatches. So, I ordered these on a hope and a prayer. LOL After spending about an hour looking at the colors on the site, I decided to go with Kittenish and Go for Girlie.
I’m so happy that I chose these colors because they are gorgeous!
One of the first things that I noticed about this is the rounded tip. I didn’t think that it would allow me to get precise coverage, but oh boy was I wrong. This lip pencil lined my lips perfectly without even trying!
Kittenish – a pretty mauve
Go for Girlie – bright pink
I think that these two colors are just a tad bit similar when on the lips, but Go for Girlie is definitely brighter.
Overall, I have to say that I was very happy with Kittenish and not too happy with Go for Girlie.
Kittenish was very easy to apply, not sticky and went on pretty smooth. As far as wear, Kittenish lasted about 2-4 hours with eating and drinking. By the end of the day it did leave a bit of a pretty stain.
Go for Girlie went on pretty smooth as well, and not sticky, but I had to apply quite a few layers in order to get nice even coverage because it went on a bit patchy. As far as wear, Go for Girlie lasted about 2-3 hours with eating and drinking. By the end of the day it left behind a patchy stain.
In the promotion pictures for Mac Patent Polish Lip pencils, it shows them as being extremely glossy like patent leather. Yet, these had a very subtle gloss to them. Personally I liked the subtle glossy look, but if you are looking for something super glossy this isn’t it.
Mac Patent Polish Lip Pencils: $20
Belleza Kisses (Kittenish) – 5/5
Belleza Kisses (Go for Girlie) – 3/5
Have you tried the new Mac Patent Polish Lip Pencils yet? If so, what color did you get? What are your thoughts on them?
If not, is this something that you would purchase? If so, what color would you get?
I’m definitely going to go and order the Mac Patent Polish Lip Pencil in Teen Dream, fingers crossed that it doesn’t give me the same problems that Go for Girlie gave me.
*My lip pictures could have definitely been better. My job’s lighting is not too good.
