MAC lipstick in Fusion Pink - Review

So last week, I blogged about my first Back 2 MAC experience, and I picked up the shade Fusion Pink for free. I finally got around to wearing it (I say finally, but it's been what, a week?) so here are my thoughts!

Fusion Pink is described as a "bright pink" and is apart of the Amplified Creme finish family. Fusion Pink is indeed a bright pink with warm undertones, and it has a pearly iridescence to it that keeps it from being a flat shade. However, it does not turn frosty, which was a concern. The application was smooth and the formula is slightly sheer yet still pretty pigmented, which should be a given considering the Amplified finish. You still get full color with one swipe. When applying, there is a definite scent to the lipstick, the traditional MAC vanilla mixed with the scent of lipstick, but it fades away.  The wear is quite comfortable. I paired this with no lip liner, and did not experience any bleeding or feathering. I also paired this with my trusty MAC Prep and Prime lip. I did, however, experience some color gathering into the lip lines, as well as some highlighted flakes on my lips. I didn't experience the formula to be overly drying, however.

I wound up needing to reapply later in the day, as the lipstick was transferring onto my cup, even after blotting. The formula has a definite amount of slip, most likely due to the Creme portion of the Amplified Creme finish. This isn't the longest wearing MAC lipstick I have, but a lot of the issues such as the product collecting into the lip lines can be fixed by pressing the lips together. I like that I was able to put it on without a lip liner.

  • Pigmented
  • Smooth application
