MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick in “Burning Love” Review, Swatch & LOTD-
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-
- 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”.
Price: 17.50 GBP in UK & 19 USD in USA for 3 gm.
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.

My Rating: 4.5/5!
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 ^_^
