Powder Kiss Lipstick

MAC launched a new formula of matte lip màu sắc called Powder Kiss Lipstick ($19 each for 3 g/0.1 oz, made in Italy). These were seen all over the backstage beauty photos in recent fashion week coverage và I thought these were going to lớn be too trendy for me but was pleasantly surprised. Long time readers know I really vì not lượt thích matte lips. These are described as, “A moisture-matte weightless lipstick that delivers a lãng mạn blur of effortless soft-focus colour.” Depending on your lipstick finish preference these are going khổng lồ be hit or miss for you. For me these are a solid win.

The Powder Kiss Lipstick has a soft blurred matte finish without looking or feeling dry. They have a weightless texture và finish that almost feels like it’s wearing an airy cloud on the lips. The finish is cushiony with full smooth coverage & I am truly surprised at how lightweight it is. MAC describes these as having moisture-coated powder pigments which seems so interesting lớn me. They’re not really as hydrating as a lip balm, but I bởi think they have some moisture in them given the fact that they bởi not look dry on the lips.

I tried these individually on their own. I suspect with some of the lighter shades you can mix và blend together for an ombre lip or to lớn create your own custom color. There is only one shade that didn’t work for me by itself which is the palest option Best of Me. Still it applied smoothly without any patchy issues.

The packaging is just like the regular MAC Lipsticks but it has a slightly matte finish resembling the finish of the lipstick formula. Some have commented on the scent of these. I didn’t notice it while swatching or playing with them until I gave them a good whiff right out of the tube. It has MAC lipstick scent with a powdery slightly rubber smell. It’s not strong enough to bother me but it is noticeable. I consider my nose to be sensitive và it did not bother me.

Bottom line I’m impressed, especially since I’m a glossy lip girl. I really like how these glide on & give a blurred lip effect without looking or feeling dry. There’s no tugging at the lip when you apply. I also love the weightless feel. They did not dry out my lips. Lasting power nguồn is very good, it stays on & adheres well without fading for hours. Color isn’t transfer-proof though. My đứng đầu 3 picks: Burning Love, My Tweedy and Sultriness.

A few thoughts on this formula compared to a few others I’ve tried và like. MAC Matte Lipsticks are heavier and more opaque in finish with a thicker feel. Pat McGrath Matte Trance has more impact pigment-wise, it has more weight khổng lồ it while the MAC Powder Kiss feels lượt thích air. Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution almost feels lượt thích it drags on the lips by comparison, and in reality it doesn’t really drag on my lips, but if you swipe it compared to lớn the MAC Powder Kiss, the MAC glides on easier/smoother.

Available now at all MAC counters. Online at MAC Cosmetics, Nordstrom, Ulta Beauty, Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s and Saks Fifth Avenue. Have you tried these yet? Or bởi you have any matte lipstick favorites?
