MAC Proenza Schouler Lipstick Review & Swatches

MAC Proenza Schouler Lipstick

So turns out my new perfect nude is available in the MAC Proenza Schouler Lipstick shades! I’m in love with MAC Woodrose Lipstick which I might need as a back up kids. This is a Lustre finish so it is a sheerer, easier to wear shade that doesn’t leave me with zombie lips.

But hey, if Woodrose isn’t your bag there’s four other limited edition lipsticks in a variety of finishes that are debuting with the MAC Proenza Schouler Collection!

Take a look!

MAC Proenza Schouler Lipsticks

The MAC Proenza Schouler Lipsticks ($22) will be available April 24th on counter and come housed in a metallic square tube with an ombre shading that includes green, yellow, pink, and purple shades. I’ll be honest, I’ve seen some great and fun packaging from MAC limited edition collections but I wasn’t terribly impressed with what they did packaging wise with this collection.

Woodrose and Mangrove Swatches

I tried two of the four shades one of which was an exciting bright orange called Mangrove. This is a matte which wasn’t particularly a smooth experience for me as it did drag a bit on my drier lips! It did wear a solid five hours on me and left a bit of a stain behind well after it faded however I didn’t love the dryness it produced through that wear. It’s a matte formula that I wasn’t terribly impressed with in all honesty.

My favorite of the two shades was Woodrose. This is a light pinky beige. I loved it. It’s a great nude shade with a hint of a shine. Lustre’s typically have a sheerer finish and I find they drag a tiny bit during application but they look soft and flawless on lips with a hint of shine. This is headed on my “awesome sauce” nude lips list as it looks natural and pretty without giving me that living dead girl finish.

If the collection isn’t your deal I’d at least recommend checking out Woodrose! I thought this was an ideal pink beige for nude lips. Loved it!

The MAC Proenza Schouler Lipstick will be available on counters and online at at the end of the month.

    I’m with you on the packaging. It’s just meh. But Mangrove is incredibly gorgeous! I was planning on skipping the lipsticks in this collection but I don’t think I can resist it lol

      yeah, they could have done better right?! packaging was just kinda blah to me!

    Mangrove is stunning! Is there any color you don’t wear well?

      ha thanks shani but it looks dry as hell on me, not my shade I fear 😀 I love you for saying that though!
