MAC Pro Longwear Lipstain marker

As soon as I saw the promo images, I knew I had to have a lipstain marker from the Art Supplies collection. One of my first darker lip colours was a lipstain from the Body Shop (a berry colour I believe) and I loved it’s long lasting abilities.

Although I swatched a few, I found the colour variation really disappointing. Initially I had Stylesetter in my hand(a pretty bright baby pink) I ended up getting Full of Flare on recommendation of the MUA.

Although this looks rather dark with the flash, it’s actually a great coral red. I love the thick nib of the pen(think permanent marker size) and it gives great precision when applying.

The formula dries onto the lips, which is how it lasts so long, so it works well under other colours. I have found a perfect partnership with my beloved MAC Viva Glam Cyndi

Have you got any of the lipstains? What are your thoughts?
