MAC Kissable LipColours from Shop MAC- Review & Swatches

Top to bottom: Woo Me, Enchantee, Flaunting It, Scan-delicious
There are five limited edition shades of MAC Kissable Lipcolour from the Shop MAC Collection- though you probably remember these as repromotes from Peacocky about a year or so ago. I only got 4 out of the 5 because So Vain is a muted dirty coral, and such shades look horrible on my cool NC20-25 skin.

I love this formula so much- it is so comfortable to wear- it is in that hybrid category somewhere between a lipstick and a lip gloss. It has the opaque coverage and feel of a lipstick with the sheen of a lip gloss. It feels velvety and smooth on the lips, but isn't terribly long-wearing. With the lighter shades I find that I have to reapply after a couple of hours, whereas the darker ones wear a bit longer. They have the vanilla scent/taste that one expects with many of the MAC lip products, but that quickly fades.

Woo Me: is a light pinky nude shade. It leans a bit on the beige side and does contain some shimmer, but not an overwhelming amount. 
Enchantee: is a light blue pink that reminds me a bit of Viva Glam Gaga, but Enchantee is slightly warmer.
Flaunting it: is a grey mauve. To me it seems a bit more like a violet purple pink.
Scan-delicious: is a blue fuchsia. I think there is a good deal of red in this gorgeous shade.

Overall assessment: I love these Kissable Lipcolours and wish MAC would add them to their permanent range of products.

$19.00 0.17 oz.  MAC has sold out of Woo Me and Enchantee, but Nordstrom still has everything available but Enchantee online. However, the San Diego Nordstrom still has Enchantee in stock (619) 295-4441 Ext. 1066.
