You may remember last year’s Mac Illustrated by Julie Verhoeven.…
Who says frosty lips have gone out of style? The MAC Star Trek collection is bringin’ them back in a big way!
When the collection launches on Sept 1, there will be four frosted finish lipsticks available. I admit, I was on the fence about frost lipsticks until I saw that beauty in the middle. Hello…
LLAP (Live Long and Proper) is a frosted rose gold. This one probably applied the best out of all three.
So I’m still not sure if I can pull off this lipstick but it sure is pretty. Plus I think MAC’s frost formula has changed over the years because it is super hydrating now.
The Enemy Within is a gilded yellow gold frost. I can only imagine how nice this would look on someone with a deeper skintone.
Yep, this looks bad on me. Real bad. The quality is good and it applied fairly well though!
Kling-It-On is a deep plum with burgundy shimmer in a frost finish. I know this looks a bit patchy, but trust me when I say it’s not that bad from further away.
Ugh I want to love this one so bad. It’s all the things I love: plum, sparkles, vampy. It wore pretty well for a couple hours then started to fade. And I’ll admit it took about four layers to get it this opacity.
Two layers of each lipstick shown above.
I would 100% recommend LLAP because it’s pretty, flattering and has even pigmentation. The other two, I’m on the fence. The yellow gold won’t suit a lot of skintones and Kling-It-On is just… an acquired taste.
