MAC Patentpolish Lip Pencil Swatches (Berry Bold & Revved Up)

Hi ladies, I know it's been a while. Just a quick update, I'm recently in Guam spending summer with my family, and I've been buying a lot of makeup here cause it's cheaper in US territories than in other parts of the world. I've been visiting the MAC counter a lot, and I feel sad cause I want to be a MAC artist so bad and I just can't be one since I live in KSA. Over there only Saudis can work at MAC and I just feel so bad that I can't share my interest, talent, and creativity to women who need help in finding the right makeup for them. :( As much as I want to leave KSA, I just can't cause my husband has a good job there and he doesn't want to be away from our daughter and I. :( oh well........ Ok enough of the rant and on to the swatches! 

According to the MAC website:
"The colour and shine of a gloss, the precision of a lip pencil - now in one colour stick. M•A•C Patentpolish Lip Pencil instantly achieves a luscious shine with a single swipe. Effortless twist-up keeps application clean and simple, with no need to sharpen. Enjoy colour in a range of 12 new shades - from bright corals to soft, rosy pinks and natural nudes - that stay bright and true on all skin tones."

My hubby got these for me for my birthday last month. Personally, I wouldn't pick it up for myself cause I saw the review and swatches online and it just didn't interest me. I'm more of a creamy/matte lipstick person cause i feel like lip glosses are all the same and I don't need that much glosses.

Revved Up ($21) & Berry Bold ($21)

MAC Revved Up

MAC Revved Up - This color is super sheer! It's close to MAC Hello Kitty Cutester but Cutester is creamier and it has tiny glitters. I'm not a fan of sheer lipsticks cause I have tiny blue veins on my lips and I don't like it to show. 

MAC Berry Bold

MAC Berry Bold - It reminds me of the Revlon Lip Butters but to be honest, the Revlon one has better formula and it stains the lips (which I like). This is just blah to me. For $21 it is overpriced while you can just buy a balm or gloss stain at the drugstore for just a few bucks. I have never been disappointed with a MAC product so this is the first one on my list.
