Mac Powder Kiss Lipstick: Matte, totally reinvented. Delivering a romantic blur of soft-focus colour, this weightless moisture-matte 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 – maccosmetics.com
Sometimes matte lipsticks can feel too dry and make our lips looked cracked and old. Meet MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick. The formula feels like you have on a lip balm. I do not know how they did this but WOW. This new lipstick formula is extremely comfortable on the lips. As I was swatching them they went on smooth and easy. Like your lips, when you swatch very matte lipsticks they do not swatch great. The red shades caught my attention right away. Style Shocked reminds me of a subdued Lady Danger. This shade is the perfect shade if you are new to a bold lip. Many of the more “bold” colors are.
As a disclaimer I did go back and forth a couple times for my swatches but they are pigmented and not sheer! I just wanted to get my swatch to look a bit straight and not super messy. On the lips these look exactly how they are described. However they can be worn as a more sheer look and very buildable. So much to love about this formula! I would say as you should with all lip products make sure to scrub your lips and prep them before hand. My lips are a bit chapped and were not prepped and you could see a lot of those lines when I was trying them out.
I highly recommend these as the formula is something I have never seen or experienced before. Hope you enjoy the swatches below and let me know in the comments if you plan to grab 1 or 3 shades lol! Shop the lippies HERE.

When it comes to Nude Lips its so personal. Why? Because not everyone’s lip color is the same. We all want to achieve and have that perfect nude lip and sometimes that is not easy to find especially at an affordable price. I love to rock a red lip but there is something so classic about a nude lip especially with a smokey eye.
For my skin tone I love a nude lip that is lighter brown/pinky toned but I also love to wear a darker brown shade especially in the fall. When I posted my most loved MAC nudes a reader said to me that the colors I posted were not “nude”. I was taken back by this comment a bit because I had an array of shades. What is nude for my lip color may not work on someone with a darker skin tone than me and vice versa. Nudes are not one size fits all and thanks to Maybelline, everyone can get a perfect nude for under $10. With their new Color Sensational Inti-Matte Nudes they “are warmer, more sensational nudes for every skin tone. Pucker up to radiant, confident color that highlights one’s natural beauty”

These lipsticks are most certainly BPAMC approved. You know I love a fabulous drugstore find and these fit the bill! Even though these are matte they are indeed super creamy and pigmented so they are super comfortable on the lips! They do not feel dry or heavy. It almost feels like you have a lip balm on. Just like all lipsticks they do need to be reapplied but I am okay with that. Just toss it in your purse for touch ups and you are good to go!
What is your go to Nude Lip Color? I love playing with so many different shades and textures.
