Coco Lust lipstick topped with Sexy Sweet gloss
MAC Pro Longwear Lustre Lipcolour ($20) sure lives up to its name, homie. I’ve used two of the nine recently released duos — Coco Lust/Sexy Sweet and Pink Air/High Top — and even after two meals, four bottles of water and three sticks of Orbit gum (mint mojito, yum), the colors held strong!
Each Longwear Lustre Lipcolour comes with a lustre lipstick base coat on one end and a gloss top coat on the other. Although MAC says they were designed to be worn together, rules like those were meant to be broken. I plan to mix ‘em up for even more flexibility.
Although I like the glosses (high shine and non-stick), I’m in love with the lipsticks. They’re thin and apply extremely well with the included doe-foot applicator. Worn alone they resemble other matte lipsticks, but the thin texture — feather light on the lips — doesn’t feel dry like so many other mattes do.

At $20, they’re more expensive than most MAC lipsticks and glosses, but I think they’re worth the price. A product that requires infrequent reapplication is a product built to last. Plus, by mixing and matching, you can create a variety of lip looks with these.
