Not too long ago, M.A.C. released a collection called Art Library, and among the amazing makeup products, I’ve found a new favorite: the MAC You Wouldn’t Get It matte lipstick. The entire Art Library collection is only made up of new MAC products entering the permanent line! Sometimes, I get tired of limited editions popping up in each and every brand. Especially when we’ve already seen so much of the sames hues and tones.
Now, the MAC lipstick You Wouldn’t Get It is one matte lipstick I would have gotten for myself even if it hadn’t been gifted to me by the store. The MAC Art Library collection is made of three eyeshadow palettes (I have one of them, the Nude Model eyeshadow palette that I’ll review in a few weeks), three new fake eyelashes and three new banging matte lipsticks. No face palette for this Art Library collection, but if you make your own like I’ve made my Extra Dimension blush palette, you won’t miss it too much.
What I’m reviewing today is one of the new and coolest MAC lipsticks, You Wouldn’t Get It, a beautiful lipstick that resembles slightly the iconic MAC Mehr Matte lipstick. I want to tell you all about the similarities and differences in color, and tell you, basically, that I am in love with the You Wouldn’t Get It MAC lipstick.
MAC Lipstick You Wouldn’t Get It | First Thoughts
With a name like that, so different from the one-word or two-word names like Persistence or Whirl, I would have expected the You Wouldn’t Get It lipstick to be limited-edition. Along with that muted pink matte lipstick that you can see in my Nude Model look, M.A.C. has released a beautiful peachy brown nude called Down to an Art.
They’ve also released the long-awaited Soar matte lipstick which is the same color as the Soar lipliner. The You Wouldn’t Get It lipstick and Mehr both work perfectly on top of the MAC Soar lipliner, to be fair. However, what an exceptionally amazing thing to be able to finally layer both same shades, like the Spice lipliner and lipgloss combo!
With Soar, you have to go over the swatch with the lipliner several times to get the same color as the lipstick. I love both of the other shades and I will get them in time as well, especially when my Spice Lipglass matches Down to an Art perfectly and my Heartmelter Lipglass from the Boom Boom Bloom collection matches Soar perfectly !
MAC You Wouldn’t Get It Matte Lipstick VS Mehr Swatches
When I first swatched the MAC lipstick You Wouldn’t Get It, I thought it looked like Mehr and I was like, “Why though?”. But then I swatched Mehr next to it, and there’s definitely a difference between the two lipsticks.
On my swatch, You Wouldn’t Get It is on the left and the Mehr lipstick is on the right: you can see that Mehr is more mauve when You Wouldn’t Get It is a perfect muted, natural and a more cool-toned pink. Muted it is, as we can see from the swatches, but the shade is still bright enough that I chose it over Soar. It’s a perfect lipstick color for spring, and a perfect nude for many fair-skinned women out there!
I am under the impression that the MAC You Wouldn’t Get It lipstick is easier to apply than some other MAC matte lipsticks. That’s an impression I’ve already had with the Framboise Moi lipstick – are MAC Cosmetics making their mattes softer? I’m not bothered, that’s actually much cooler to have a less draggy matte lipstick for once!
To sum everything up, the MAC You Wouldn’t Get It lipstick lasts a long time, is super pigmented, same overall quality as all the other MAC matte lipsticks I already own, if not better. It’s just a super nice lipstick to have in your collection. To be quite frank, it’s like the lipsticks You Wouldn’t Get It, Mehr and Soar now make a family, like a Pokemon evolution – how cool is that? Now, in the meantime, I’ve also worn the life out of the Inglot matte lipsticks, and if you love amazing makeup, you should definitely check them out!
