MAC Bloombox, Dramarama, Moody Bloom Lipsticks Evaluations & Swatches

Bloombox

MAC Bloombox lipstick ($ 20.00 for 0.1 oz.) Is a light, medium-dark coral with moderate, warm undertones – balanced between pink and orange – paired with a semi-matte finish. It had an opaque color coverage, but it tended to separate / pull away from my lip lines, making it look a little blotchy in places.

The consistency was moderately dense, a little thicker (which in my opinion was why it didn’t sit so smoothly on my lips), but smooth and comfortable to apply. It stayed good for five and a half hours and felt slightly moisturizing over time.

MAC Lipstick comes in a variety of styles, and pigmentation and wear and tear usually depend on the finish. The transparent surfaces, like lustres, are usually only worn for a few hours and have a transparent cover (as intended) and are non-drying.

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

The Amplified and Satin surfaces tend to have good pigmentation, slightly creamy to moderately creamy consistencies with a little sheen and moderate to long wear with deeper, stronger shades that wear longer. The frost and metallic surfaces show the greatest variance between the colors. Coverage ranges from semi-transparent to opaque with average wear and non-drying to slightly drying formulas. All MAC lipsticks smell like vanilla, but have no discernible taste.

Drama

MAC Dramarama lipstick ($ 20.00 for 0.1 oz.) Is a vibrant neon pink with warmer undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had almost opaque paint coverage in a single stroke that could be built up with a little more layers to make a full coverage with a little more layers if needed. The product was applied fairly evenly, but it tended to separate and settle in my lip lines and there was a bit of streaking around the edges.

The lipstick was a denser, thicker consistency that was smooth and velvety to the touch, making it comfortable to apply in one liquid stroke, but less forgiving of lip texture and imperfections. It was good to wear for five hours, stain, and felt non-drying.

Atmospheric bloom

MAC Moody Bloom lipstick ($ 20.00 for 0.1 oz.) Is a deeper red with neutral to warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, slightly creamy consistency that was moderately dense but not too thick or too thin, so it had good adhesion, but was a little more forgiving of lip texture and associated imperfections. It took six hours, left a stain, and felt neither dry nor moisturizing over time.
