One of MAC's new collections for Fall 2011 brings us a bevy of Pro Longwear Products. Today, I have one of the Pro Longwear Lip Pencils to share with you in the shade Staunchly Stylish.
Staunchly Stylish is one of 10 shades released with the Stylishly Yours Collection.
Staunchly Stylish(pinky beige) is a nice and neutral shade. The formula is rather sticky BUT it just does not come off. I had to scrub til it hurt with a MAC Bulk Wipe, and to get it off of my arm I had to use the bulk wipe wrapped over my fingernails and scratch it off. You won't feel the stickiness of it when you put a lipglass or lipstick over top, so that is a nice plus.
The Pro Longwear Lip Pencil retails for $18.00 for only 1.2g of product. A regular MAC Lip Pencil retails for $14.00 for 1.45g of product. So, once again, we're met with a higher cost and slightly less product. However, the Pro Longwear does stay on much better than your usual MAC Lip Pencil, so IMO it's worth it, especially for the darker shades.
I took it upon myself to test out Dark As Night Pro Longwear Lipglass over top of it's Lip Pencil cousin and had much better results than when I just wore it alone. I still had to work at the application of the lipglass, but it wasn't nearly as difficult.
I plan to pick up a few more shades of the Pro Longwear Lip Pencil, especially in the red. I love to wear red lipstick but HATE when it fades and you're just left with a big ol' ring around the lips!
MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil retails for $18.00. This is part of the permanent line at all MAC locations as well as at MACcosmetics.com.
