Ok so really most of these aren’t “metallic” in the way that I think of metallic nail polish. They are more glittery/shimmery/multi-dimensional. None of them are particularly pigmented, they are one the more sheer kind of dry-ish side and can take a few swipes to really show up. They are a bit buildable. They don’t have a gritty texture even though they are very shimmery, but they definitely aren’t as smooth and hydrating as some of their other formulas. I do like the variety of shades represented and the darker ones are really cool looking in person. I probably wouldn’t ever wear these on their own as they aren’t pigmented enough for me, but definitely would wear them as a lipstick topper!
The MAC Metallic Lipstick Summer 2017 collection will be available on their site March 23rd and they are $17.00 each.
