MAC Cremesheen formulas are soft & creamy with some superb pigmentation & longevity. I won’t say they are highly moisturizing but then not very drying also, just good enough to keep lips comfortable. However I do love to top a transparent gloss or balm going down the wear time looking at my extremely dry lips. They give pretty good coverage on the lips with an understated shine good enough to make lips look healthy. The formula feels super light on lips even with tad bit of layering (you won’t need much layering with the formula!) & swipes smoothly across the lips without any bleeding or feathering once set.
Speak Louder is described as clean Poppy Blue Pink by MAC & it does look as a cool toned pink in tube but comes out as a beautiful bright Rosy Pink with slight blue tones on my NC42 skintone. A perky & vivid shade that instantly brightens up the face. Though it’s a clear cool toned shade, woos warmer complexions equally well. The shade is bright without being into the face colour. It safeguards itself well without entering neon’s territory still making a statement lips. It’s a quieter bright which doesn’t go all the way aggressive & stark! Speak Louder goes opaque with a single pass on my moderately pigmented lips & wears for solid 4+ hours with slight meals & drinks. If you looking for a wearable bright & vivacious pink check this one out!
- Soft & creamy texture which glides smoothly & applies evenly.

With a comfortable formula Speak Louder makes a very wearable bright & vivid pink. Though it’s in and out cool toned shade in the tube , compliments warmer complexions equally. It is highly pigmented, moisturising & long wearing and in whole brightens up the entire look. Highly Recommended!
