Admittedly, it has been a long time since I’ve gotten excited over lipstick. I usually stick to the ones I love and stay loyal to them, and I only go out to buy a new tube when I run out (I get such a feeling of accomplishment when I finish products–especially makeup). My go-to lipstick has always been MAC Matte Lipstick in Honeylove. I’ve been wearing this for years and I always carry a tube in my bag.
That is, of course, until I tried MAC Powder Kiss lipstick. I was invited by MAC Cosmetics to try out this newest lipstick variant in their Powerplant store and I was completely blown away by it.
As a fan of matte lipsticks, this was something that appealed to me. The Powder Kiss formulation is velvety and light, and yes, it turns into this powdery finish that is not drying (actually, it has moisturizing properties). Really amazing innovative stuff. I couldn’t believe it myself until MAC’s resident makeup artist Niño Magno applied it on my eyelids and cheeks. Amazingly, it is also a multi-use product, and it comes in the most beautiful colors.
So okay, to make this a legit review, I’ve decided to write down my pros and cons about this lipstick. Just so you know what you’re getting into if you decide to give it a go.
PROS: It comes in vibrant, wearable colors; it is easy to apply (glides on easily); it has a buildable color (add on to get a richer color); it has a velvety powder finish (it doesn’t feel like anything on the lips); it is multi-use (can be used on your eyes and cheeks); and it comes in 15 beautiful shades.
CONS: It takes some getting used to because it really feels like you have nothing on your lips (especially if you’re used to wearing waxy or glossy lipstick); and I’ve been advised to store it in a cool place as it has a tendency to melt in super hot weather.
