Mac Red Racer Lipstick Swatch & Review (Hey Sailor)

 Mac Red Racer Lipstick is a medium red and a satin finish with no shimmer. I think people's milage will really vary with this lipstick, it's supposed to have a yellow undertone which you can see in some lights but once applied I find this turns more pink and a bit darker. It has a semi shiny finish and is very pigmented so is opaque in one swipe, once it wears off you are left with a red stain on the lips.

 I found this lasted about 5 hours on me before it started to fade into a stain. I don't find the satin formula drying (nor do I find it hydrating) but I would recommend applying a balm before using these. It's also worth noting that these lipsticks from the Hey Sailor collection are more expensive that the standard shades on account of the special packaging.
