MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick- Style Surge, Grande Dame , Dreaminess

From top- Style Surge, Grande Dame, Dreaminess

I like, but am not yet sure I love, the new Mineralize Rich  lipsticks from MAC.

These new , long awaited lipsticks pack  a lot of pigment  and are full/opaque coverage . I do feel that it seems harder to get the coverage though,  although I can't lay my finger on exactly why. Not enough slip maybe ?  But I  have to sometimes do a 2nd go over to get the coverage I want. It's not lack of, but more the way they apply. I've talked about lippies before that "hug" the lips, and Mineralize doesn't quite do that. 

All that said, they are still pretty lovely .The finish on them is mainly satin but there are a few with light shimmer like Grande Dame. The creamy formula  feels light on lips and they are hydrating with plenty of moisturizing ingredients  but not as much as, say,  Sheen Supremes . (Sheen Supreme of course, is a very different type of lippie ).  They wear fairly well with an  hour to two of color then drying down to a stain like look.

They have the look and feel of retro lipstick  but updated for modern times.

The coral shade, Style Surge is a favorite here. It's not too orange, more  deep peach and great for summer. The pale pink Dreaminess is  nice if you love the cool  pinks and Grande Dame is a perfect rose that really looks great on. It's a shade that should work on almost everyone.

There is new packaging here as well with a magnetic click close between top and bottom of the tube. The bullet is larger as well.

Mineralize Rich Lipsticks are $22 and available now at MAC .
