MAC's Whirl and Stone in Lipstick Form!?

I'll be honest, I vowed to myself that I was done purchasing MAC lipsticks simply because I have too many and needed to explore different brands. In addition, since I've been exposed to so many brands that have magical lasting power, I've barely been reaching for my MAC's. However, I do reach for my Whirl and Stone lipliners all the time so when I heard about the colors releasing as lipsticks, I had to pick them up!
The top swatch is Whirl and the bottom is Stone. If you're wondering how true of a match the colors are to the lipliners, I'd say definitely 100%. Even though the lipstick is a matte formula, it's way less drying than wearing the lipliners alone so thank you MAC Gods for answering our prayers for a creamier Whirl and Stone option. The great thing about these colors are they are here to stay and not a limited edition release so if it's currently sold out in stores, you'll eventually be able to get your hands on these babies.

Stone is similar to one of my favorite limited edition MAC colors, Exclusive Event, but a little darker taupe (read more here.) I describe Whirl as a dusty rose nude - perfect for a subtle everyday color. I'll be honest, their lasting power is basically non-existent when you eat anything, which has always been a bummer for me but I still love their sleek packaging and the crazy amount of colors the lipsticks come in!

Have you guys picked up anything from MAC's new matte lipstick collection? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

    1. I think Lolita is darker in terms of the "Rose" color but I prefer Lolita any day because of it's ridiculously amazing lasting power. I'm actually wearing Lolita today too lol!

  11. Such special colours! I've been eyeing on these colours as well but I don't know if they will suit me. Maybe a bit to warm toned? I'd love to see how they suit you.
