Warm Ice

MAC Warm Ice Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium gold with warmer undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that wasn’t buildable to full coverage. The texture was smooth, lightly emollient, and easy to work with as the lipstick glided across lips with ease. Despite the strong sheen, it did not seem prone to emphasizing the texture of my lips. It wore well for four hours and was non-drying.

Formula Overview

$17.50/0.10 oz. – $175.00 Per Ounce

MAC Lipstick comes in a variety of finishes, and the pigmentation and wear tend to be dependent on the finish. The sheer finishes, like Lustres, tend to wear for only a couple of hours and have sheer coverage (as designed) and are non-drying. Some of the original Matte shades have a stiffer, drier formula, while newer ones have a more velvety, silicone-feel to them, and the latter are creamier, more comfortable to wear, and easier to apply, but most Matte shades are quite pigmented and long-wearing, though some are drying. The Amplified and Satin finishes tend to have good pigmentation, lightly creamy to moderately creamy consistencies with a bit of shine, and moderate to long wear with deeper, richer shades wearing longer. The Frost and Metallic finishes have the most variance between shades with coverage ranging from semi-sheer to opaque with average wear and non-drying to slightly drying formulas. All MAC lipsticks are vanilla-scented but have no discernible taste.

Holiday Crush

MAC Holiday Crush Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark gold with warm, brownundertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied evenly across the lips. The consistency was lightweight, thin but not clingy, and creamy enough to glide on without tugging but did not feel slippery on the lips during wear. This shade stayed on well for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.

Shimmer and Spice

MAC Shimmer and Spice Lipstick ($17.50 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish plum with warm undertones and multi-colored sparkle and micro-glitter. It had semi-sheer to medium, buildable coverage with a moderately emollient consistency that had noticeable slip once applied. I could feel the edges of the sparkles in the lipstick as I applied it, though they did not feel rough or scratchy. It went on fairly evenly, despite the sheerness and slip. On me, it lasted for four hours and was neither drying nor hydrating.
