MAC launched a brand new components of matte lip shade referred to as Powder Kiss Lipstick ($19 every for three g/0.1 oz, made in Italy). These had been seen all around the backstage magnificence pictures in current style week protection and I believed these had been going to be too stylish for me however was pleasantly stunned. Very long time readers know I actually don’t like matte lips. These are described as, “A moisture-matte weightless lipstick that delivers a romantic blur of easy soft-focus color.” Relying in your lipstick end desire these are going to be hit and miss for you. For me these are a stable win.
The Powder Kiss Lipstick has a smooth blurred matte end with out trying or feeling dry. They’ve a weightless texture and end that just about feels prefer it’s carrying an ethereal cloud on the lips. The end is cushiony with full clean protection and I’m really stunned at how light-weight it’s. MAC describes these as having moisture-coated powder pigments which appears so attention-grabbing to me. They’re probably not as hydrating as a lip balm, however I do assume they’ve some moisture in them given the truth that they don’t look dry on the lips.
I attempted these individually on their very own. I think with a number of the lighter shades you’ll be able to combine and mix collectively for an ombre lip or to create your individual customized shade. There is just one shade that didn’t work for me by itself which is the palest possibility Better of Me. Nonetheless it utilized easily with none patchy points.
The packaging is rather like the common MAC Lipsticks however it has a barely matte end resembling the end of the lipstick components. Some have commented on the scent of those. I didn’t discover it whereas swatching or taking part in with them till I gave them a very good whiff proper out of the tube. It has MAC lipstick scent with a powdery barely rubber scent. It’s not sturdy sufficient to hassle me however it’s noticeable. I contemplate my nostril to be delicate and it didn’t hassle me.

Backside line I’m impressed, particularly since I’m a shiny lip lady. I actually like how these glide on and provides a blurred lip impact with out trying or feeling dry. There’s no tugging on the lip whenever you apply. I additionally love the weightless really feel. They didn’t dry out my lips. Lasting energy is superb, it stays on and adheres properly with out fading for hours. Shade isn’t transfer-proof although. My high three picks: Burning Love, My Tweedy and Sultriness.
A couple of ideas on this components in contrast to a couple others I’ve tried and like. MAC Matte Lipsticks are heavier and extra opaque in end with a thicker really feel. Pat McGrath Matte Trance has extra affect pigment-wise, it has extra weight to it whereas the MAC Powder Kiss looks like air. Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution virtually feels prefer it drags on the lips by comparability, and in actuality it doesn’t actually drag on my lips, however in the event you swipe it in comparison with the MAC Powder Kiss, the MAC glides on simpler/smoother.
