MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in Absolutely It

I very rarely get a chance to try/swatch MAC products in real life, so when I was flying to visit my family at the beginning of December, I had to pop into MAC to get a couple of things at Duty Free prices :) Yay! One of the products I picked up is the MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil (£15.00) in Absolutely It and it is simply stunning!

I wanted a dark nude shade and I was hoping to get my mitts on Soar or Whirl, but they are sold out almost everywhere, so I opted for 'Absolutely It'. It is more of a soft berry shade than a dark nude, but it looks beautiful on the lips and goes with many lipsticks. I tried it with pink, berry and nude colours and it goes with all of them perfectly. The finish of the liner is a mixture between satin and frost and I love wearing it on it's own or with MAC Hug Me Lipstick (review coming soon).

I noticed that the formula and pigmentation of Absolutely It are much better than my previous purchases from MAC (Staunchly Stylish and Subculture). I find this one a bit more creamy and slightly more pigmented.  The lasting power is the same though - 3 to 4 hours.


Overall, I am really pleased with this purchase and I will be sticking to darker MAC lip liners from now on, as the lighter shades aren't as good.

What lip liners from MAC would you recommend? I think I need Cherry in my life.

  1. I love the pro longerwear liners better than the other liners, they're so much softer and get such a smoother line! x

  3. Probably not a colour I would think of buying but it looks really pretty! I have Vino and I think it's great if you're into purples/berries/darker reds.

  4. I've never tried Mac lip liners but this one is gorgeous! It's nice to know their lighter shades aren't that good since they're not the cheapest :/

  8. This looks like such a lovely wearable shade! While Whirl/Soar/Spice are all very popular I just can't see them working on me. Might need to make a little trip to MAC myself! :)

  10. I've never tried MAC lipliners, but after hearing so many great things I might have to give them a try. I have such a love/hate relationship with MAC. I do love some of their products, but I just have never had good experiences with their employees for some reason. Anyways, the color looks stunning on your lips. I think it's good that the others were sold out, because this one is more unique!

  11. This is the kind of red I love! I haven't heard too much about the pro-longwear formulation up until now, but it sounds amazing.
