MAC Berry Difficult & Wild Card Lipsticks Evaluations & Swatches

MAC Berry Tricky Lipstick ($ 21.00 for 0.1 oz.) Is a rich raspberry base with lighter violet and fuchsia pearl. It had near-opaque paint coverage in a single layer that applied smoothly and evenly to my lips without puffing.

The texture was a little firmer, but not dense or thick, so it was comfortable to apply and wear without slipping. It lasted a good five and a half hours, left a stain, and moisturized slightly over time.

MAC Lipstick comes in a variety of finishes, and pigmentation and wear and tear usually depend on the finish. The clear finishes, like lustres, tend to only wear a few hours and have a bare cover (as intended) and won’t dry out.

Some of the original matte paints have a stiffer, drier formula, while newer ones have a velvety silicone feel, and the latter are creamier, more comfortable to wear, and easier to apply, but most matte paints are fairly pigmented and long-lasting, though some dry.

The Amplified and Satin finishes usually have good pigmentation, a slightly creamy to moderately creamy consistency with a bit of sheen, and a moderate to long shelf life with deeper, richer hues that are worn longer. The frost and metallic finishes show the greatest variance between the colors with an opacity from semi-transparent to opaque with average wear and tear and non-drying to slightly drying formulas. All MAC lipsticks smell like vanilla, but have no discernible taste.

MAC wildcard lipstick ($ 21.00 for 0.1 oz.) Is a medium dark red with cooler blue undertones and a matte finish. The texture was moderately dense, slightly creamy, but rather velvety, as it was applied evenly and smoothly, but did not slip at all. It delivered complete pigmentation in one go that lasted well for six hours, left a stain, and did not dry when worn.
