MAC Art Supplies Pro Longwear Lip Stain Marker

MAC has once again assured themselves a place on my best of the year list with their new MAC Pro Longwear Lip Stain Markersicon, which are part of their Art Supplies Collection.  A year or so ago, CoverGirl came out with something similar, which I liked, but did not feel really lasted well. Here is the previous Cover Girl review: CoverGirl Outlast Lip Stain.   MAC’s lip stain markers are an improvement on that idea.

MAC Lip Stain Marker

MAC lip stain markers look and feel much like a standard magic marker. They have a felt-like tip that dispenses lip stain. The stain itself is decent quality. The pigment is good and it wears quite well. I wore mine through a can of diet cola and a light meal with no loss in color. MAC also has released the markers in a variety of shades for flexibility. One note though: Go darker than you think you might want—the lip stain wears fairly sheer.

Below are MAC Lip Stain swatches in Full of Flair, Style Setter, and Purposefully Red (my favorite):

Because they are sheer and light, lip stains are great for a natural look.  Lip stains can feel a bit dry, so I recommend wearing a light gloss over them. Another great use for them is as a layer for creating a long lasting lip look: Apply stain, then lip pencil and then lip color.

  1. Great review. What do you think of these vs the Pro Longwear Lipcolor from MAC?

    I really like the pro longwear, but they are quite different products. Pro longwear is a thicker stain, while the lip markers are liquid and thin. I prefer the markers simply because they are easier to apply and wear in general.
