MAC Kissable Lipcolour Swatches and Review

Monday, January 30, 2012

As I'm sure most of you have already heard, MAC will soon release a large collection call Shop Shop Shop, Cook Cook Cook.  There is a huge offering of various different products ranging from Tendertones, MAC Fluidlines, lipsticks, and eyeshadow quads to creme blushes.  Out of the numerous products to be released, the Kissable Lipcolours are one of my favorite lip formulas from MAC.  I originally picked these up from the Peacocky Collection.


 Kissable Lipcolours retail at $19USD for 5g/0.17oz. 


Unlike the traditional MAC lipglasses, these come in a slender long tube with a doe foot applicator.


The formula is similar to a liquid lipstick but goes on smoothly without drying out the lips.  I usually use the applicator to apply the colors directly onto my lips. These have the usual vanilla scents but don't smell like plastic after a couple of uses, which is a huge plus for me.  I only own 3 out of the 5 shades that are going to be included in the SSS, CCC collection - Woo Me, So Vain, and Scan-delicious.  However, I figured I should show you all of the shades in case these get released again in the future.


So Vain is a peachy pink that provides the natural MLBB look. This color is flattering on all skin tones but especially so for light to medium skin tones.  I remember this was sold out quickly when it was first released.

Woo Me was the star of the Peacocky Collection.  It is a beige pink that provides a lovely nude lip.  If I remember correctly, it was the first to be sold out and is highly sought after.  On me, it does create a true nude lip with just enough pink so I don't look like a corpse.

Scan-delicious is a bold fuchsia that is surprisingly very flattering on my skin tone.  It can certainly be sheered out with a lip brush. 


Strut Your Stuff is a blue based red that is not as coral as it seems in the swatches. For some reason, I can't seem to get the correct color to show up on this one. This shade is intense and definitely not for the color shy!

Temper Tantra is one of my favorite shades for a rosy MLBB look.  It is a deep brown rose that is similar to MAC's recent release, Pillow Talk.

Exxx-Hibitionist is a bright coral that is much bolder compared to So Vain. I find myself having to blot quite a few times just to tone down the color on my lips. 


All of the swatches shown are done with only 1 swipe of the brush.  As you can see, these Kissable Lipcolours are quite pigmented.  Below is a scrub test after the colors have been on my arm for about 20 minutes.


Overall, I am a fan of MAC's Kissable Lipcolours.  The colors are wearable and leave behind a nice soft stain. I do recommend prepping your lips prior to application if you have really dry lips.  The overall wear time for me is about 4-5 hours if I don't eat any greasy food.  It wears pretty well with drinking, especially with the darker shades.

Bottom Line: Do check out the Kissable Lipcolours in the upcoming Shop Shop Shop, Cook Cook Cook Collection. There is a shade that's flattering for everyone whether you're looking for a nude color or a bright, bold red.  Woo Me and So Vain are two very popular shades that will probably sell out quickly like last time.  If interested, I would nab these 2 first before they're all gone.

What's your take on the Kissable Lipcolours? Which shades are on your list?

Yayayay im so excited to get one of these babies. Im so sad though..... This collection wont have the temper tantra one. Sighhh i think i will just get the so vain one. Nothing should be able to go wrong with a coral color. Thxs for the swatches and reviews. I never tried any lip glosses from mac so how would you say these compare wih cremesheens?

I have Woo Me and Exxxhibitionist!! LOVE these!!! Thanks for the swatches!

Kumiko Mae - Sorry I haven't tried NYX Matte lipsticks so I can't say if they are silimar.

Popcorn - I would say these are not as glossy or slick compared to cremesheens. They are definitely more like Chanel Rouge Allure Lacque's formula.
