MAC Berry Black Friday Patentpolish Lip Pencil

MAC Berry Black Friday Patentpolish Lip Pencil
For me Black Friday implies sitting in my pajamas and eating leftover Thanksgiving pecan pie for breakfast.

And maybe also for lunch…


And possibly dinner…

Aaand it also implies playing fill the online shopping Cart, which is a game I like to play where I see how much I can put into various online shopping e-carts with no objective of actually completing the checkout, and going “WOW!” as the tally grows into the thousands of dollars.

For MAC, Black Friday implies another limited edition makeup launch on one of the most significant shopping days of the year.

This year, they’re putting the focus on lips with a new shade of Patentpolish Lip Pencil called Berry Black Friday. It’s a blackened plum with a shiny finish, and it’ll be $20, available exclusively on the MAC site (I believe it’s a one-day limited edition product available only on Black Friday).

If you like sheer-to-medium coverage dark lip shades, it’s a beauty.

I like colors like this one, which reminds me a little of an old-school Clinique Black Honey, because it lays down a good amount of pigment, but I can still see my natural lip color through it. That, and because it’s on the sheerer side, I don’t have to use it with a lip liner if I don’t feel like it.

Coverage-wise, the Patentpolish formula is flexible. When I apply Berry Black Friday, I typically just do it straight from the bullet for a sheer, but noticeable, blackened plum, but I also know that if I want to crank it up, all I have to do is apply it with a lip brush for much more opacity.

Also, the moderately moisturizing formula feels good and smooth. Lately my lips have been a High Flake Zone, particularly my bottom lip, but with Berry Black Friday, you can’t tell.

Wear time is around two or three hours, and I don’t really notice a flavor, but I can smell a very light vanilla.


What are your plans for Black Friday? Do you have any shopping lined up? I don’t think I’ll brave the crowds and traffic this year…but I do expect to be very concerned about the household pecan pie situation.
