MAC Moot Point & Love is Blind Matte Lip Mousses Reviews & Swatches

Moot Point

MAC Moot Point Matte Lip Mousse ($20.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish-copper with warm undertones and a natural sheen. This one seemed to have more light-reflecting properties to its finish compared to other shades in the range, though blotting lightly or letting it naturally wear down for an hour or two revealed a truer, “soft matte” finish.

It had a lightweight, thin consistency that spread fairly evenly across my lips in fluid strokes, but it had a more watery texture than other shades in the formula, which made it harder to control along the edges. I was able to apply it more precisely the second time I used it (for actual testing), so it was workable after learning that nuance about it. It wore well for six and a half hours and felt a little drying after that point.

Formula Overview

$20.00/0.24 oz. - $83.33 Per Ounce

The product is supposed to have "immediate and long-term hydration" paired with a "long-wearing," "sheer-to-medium buildable coverage" formula that has a "soft matte finish" that wears for "eight hours." All of the shades had the typical vanilla scent (but no discernible taste). The pigmentation was more medium coverage with some getting closer to semi-opaque coverage using one pull of product (applying across my lips using what was on the applicator after removing from the tube). To get sheerer coverage, you'd have to wipe away the excess or spread out with fingertips.

The texture was like a watery mousse; it didn't seem as whipped or as airy as a typical mousse, but it was very lightweight, thin, and had a soft-set--still some transfer initially but wore down to a transfer-resistant finish after a gentle blot or some drinking (where some product transferred onto the glass). The product didn't feel "wet" or creamy after it was applied. The finish was more satiny to me and wore down to semi-matte within an hour and then further mattified after one to two hours of wear. Some shades applied evenly and sat well on my lips, while others were streaky, patchy, or separated along and emphasized my lip lines.

The formula did not seem to be hydrating either immediately or long-term, as I felt like my lips were always drier and a bit worse for the wear after wearing the products for 16-18 hours per day. I did not use lip balm for 48 hours, and my lips started to crack, so I had to resume my normal use of lip balm (at night, while I sleep). They were long-wearing and flexible/comfortable to wear for the most part, and most of the shades lasted five to six hours with some lasting closer to the eight hours claimed. I didn't experience any feathering/bleeding during wear.

Love is Blind

MAC Love is Blind Matte Lip Mousse ($20.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a medium-dark, pink-plum with cooler undertones and a semi-matte finish. The color applied evenly and smoothly across my lips, and it didn’t seem to emphasize my lip lines (didn’t hide them either, so you can see some of my natural lip texture).

It had medium color coverage that was buildable to nearly full coverage with a second coat. The consistency felt lightweight, spread easily across my lips, and was controllable as it was slightly watery but not to the point where it slid all over the place. It stayed on well for six and a half hours and felt neither drying nor hydrating over time.
