Sorry for reviewing a product that was limited edition and is now sold out, but I’m sure this will pop up at Cosmetic Company Outlets at some point. I didn’t think I would be getting any of the lipsticks from the MAC x Nasty Gal collection but then one of my friends kindly gifted to me the color I was most interested in– Gunner.
Formula-wise, I think this lipstick is great. It’s really pigmented, long-wearing, and creamy enough so that it doesn’t tug on the lips upon application (unlike MAC’s Smoked Purple, a somewhat similar color). Gunner feels like a satin or semi-matte so it doesn’t bleed or transfer everywhere. What I find very peculiar is that Gunner seems to look quite different on everyone. On pale skin tones, it looks like a very deep purple but on myself and my friend (who is darker than me, probably an NW40) it looks borderline black. Gunner has definitely been one of the most unique purples MAC has released in a while.
Did you pick up any of the MAC x Nasty Gal lipsticks?
