MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick in “Burning Love” Review, Swatch & LOTD-

 

Hey lovelies!

I have almost forgotten the last time I bought a MAC lipstick since coming here in UK as I have been inundated with so many other brands we don’t get in India so I buy them instead. However, MAC very recently launched an entirely new lipstick finish called “Powder Kiss” which is supposed to be hydrating yet matte & I had to try one out.

What MAC Says-

Matte, totally reinvented. Delivering a romantic blur of soft focus colour, this weightless moisturematte lipstick was developed to replicate a backstage technique: blending out edges of matte lipstick for a hazy effect. Its groundbreaking formula contains moisture coated powder pigments that condition and hydrate lips. The result is the zero shine look of a matte lipstick with the cushiony, lightweight feel of a balm. Fall for this all new soft touch, misty matte kiss of colour.
  • Moisturizes lips immediately and overtime Extremely comfortable to wear
  • Soft focus look
  • Blurs lines and smooths the lips (reduces appearance of lip lines

Th shade “Burning Love” is described as a “Deep, reddened wine”.

My take on the MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick in “Burning Love”-

The packaging is the same MAC black & silver tube packaging though the tube feels more matte in texture & the lipstick bullet is definitely velvety both in look & feel. Overall as always, easy to use & travel with packaging.

The finish is “Powder Kiss” which is sort of satin matte really, very easy to apply on even dry lips & glides on without any tugging/pulling. It does not accentuate lip flaws & feels & looks very forgiving.

The pigmentation is medium-opaque where I need 3-4 swipes for full pigment & I was kind of expecting a richer color pay-off.

The shade “Burning Love” is a proper plum shade, not too red nor too cool toned & I love how it immediately brightens up my complexion & can be worn anywhere. It will look great on any complexion, especially medium skin tones I feel 🙂

The lipstick has great lasting power & easily lasts on my lips through 5-6 hours+ through light food & drinks & lots of conversation 🙂 It does not dry out my lips when it does wear away without leaving any stain.

Pros of the MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick in “Burning Love”:

1> Convenient, travel friendly packaging.

2> Smooth texture, glides easily on lips. does not emphasize flaws.

3> The shade “Burning Love” is a lovely perfect plum which looks great on everyone.

4> Staying power is great & lasts for 5-6 hours.

5> Not at all drying.

Cons of the MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick in “Burning Love”:

I wish the color payoff was richer, more opaque.

Do I recommend the MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick in “Burning Love”?

MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick in “Burning Love” is a beautiful plum shade in a new finish “powder kiss” which is hydrating, lightweight & does not emphasize dryness/fine lines. I do like it a lot but am not too crazy about the less opaque pigmentation so yeah, I will go back to my trusty matte finish instead ^_^
