The MAC Beth Ditto Pro Longwear Lipcremes: A Study in Contrasts

Published in: Lips, MAC Makeup, Product Reviews

MAC Beth Ditto Pro Longwear Lipcreme in Heart Hangover on my lips

Sure, I’ll take a salty caramel, but I think I’ll pass on the chocolate-covered bacon.



It’s a big seller, you say? Really…? Who buys it? Yeah, I guess I can see it as a novelty, mixing contrasts like that. I guess that’s also what MAC had in mind with the new MAC Beth Ditto Pro Longwear Lipcremes ($17 each).

I don’t know. Something about the mix of quiet colors and bold brights just feels right to me.

LOL! No, not like chocolate and bacon. :) Probably more like salt and caramel.

The hushed hues in You’re Perfect Already (a neutral pale pink) and Love Long Distance (a light mauve) look like they were made with lighter lovelies in mind, while bronzed beauties and darker divas might fall in love with lush, vivid Heart Hangover (a deep purple), Dear Diary (a bright neon pink) and BOOYAH!! (a bright orange).

If you’re new to the Pro Longwear Lipcremes, you’re in luck (here’s a review)!

They’re like the MAC Amplified lipsticks, version 2.0. Creamy, moisturizing pigments with a touch of vanilla flavor and scent, and they last all day long on me, even through drinks and meals.

    Every time I read or hear about this collection, I think about Macbeth…which may be appropriate, I know some people who will kill for limited edition MAC prods.

  3. dear diary is soooo freaking gorgeous to me i think i may have to get that one!

    Thank you so much for those comparisons. I realize that Girl About Town is the perfect of the three for me.

  5. Rads says:

    You have the cutest smile..really!

  6. As expected, BOOYAH! looks amazing on you! I’ve never tried this formula from MAC–and don’t usually do bright lips for that matter. But BOOYAH just looks so…so fun!

  7. I really really really adore how Booyah! and Dear Diary look on you! I think they work SO well with your skin tone! It’s just all kinds of amazing! Heart Hangover would make a great shade for fall/winter too!

    I think I may have to haul BOOYAH! Awesome color! I actually have tried a chocolate-bacon bark that a local chocolatier makes and it’s not a bad flavor combo.

  9. Gwen says:

    I love lipsticks and these colors are awesome!

  10. BeckBeck says:

    I inappropriately want BOOYAH just for the name… and because I’ve just discovered I can pull off orangey reds.

  11. Naomi says:

    I love the name of You’re perfect already! I feel I need to get Booyah, just to say Booyah!!!

    Beth Ditto is awesome

  16. Xero says:

    You’re Perfect Already reminds me a lot of Think Pink from Wet n Wild’s Megalast range, it might be a good dupe.

  17. Nina says:

    I am torn – I kinda want Youre Perfect Already but im not sure if I can pull it off!

  18. Yasmeen says:
