Purchased by Me

MAC Profile

MAC, my original high-end makeup love that first caught my attention over 14 years ago, produces both pro and general consumer makeup products that range from prep to finish along with quality makeup tools. 

MAC recently released their much anticipated collab collection with fashion label Proenza Schouler. I purchased several items from that collection and will be rolling out reviews this weekend. While my Mangrove lipstick unfortunately arrived damaged (so I was unable to take a picture of the lipstick bullet), I was able to scoop some product out for review. 

This lipstick was also featured in my recent Spring 2014 Lip Series - Seeing Red post. 

Price

This lipstick retails for $22

Where to Buy

As of the time of this post it is still available via MAC/Maccosmetics.com 


MAC Proenza Schouler Mangrove Lipstick Swatch & Review


Product Type

This is a limited edition lipstick.

Scent

This has MAC's standard vanilla scent

Shade

This shade does seem to translate a bit differently on different skintones. I am roughly between an NC 25 and 30 now that I have to stay completely out of the sun. My lips are extremely unpigmented and the swatch below was done on bare lips.

MAC x Proenza Schouler Mangrove - semi-matte coral-red

On the Lips

I did find this was slightly drying with wear, but by no means uncomfortable (nothing like some Sahara-dessert mattes I've worn in the past). This had an interested suede-like feel, but it was very light-weight at the same time. The pigmentation was off the charts without liner underneath it.

Final Thoughts

I absolutely love this lipstick and although it arrived damaged, I'm going to be packing it into a palette this weekend along with a few others. Sometimes you purchase limited edition makeup and the packaging is amazing, but the product is "eh". This was absolutely not the case. Fabulous, fabulous color and gorgeous lipstick tube!

Did you purchase anything from the MAC x Proenza Schouler collection? What do you think of Mangrove?
