The Summer Season: MAC Chatterbox Lipstick

MAC Chatterbox Lipstick

The Summer Season: MAC Chatterbox Lipstick

MAC Chatterbox Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is an opaque, pretty-in-pink lipstick. It’s a smidgen on the cooler side, but it’s a rather neutral pink overall. It has a creamy feel while still clinging to lips–the slight creaminess keeps it from being drying. One of the best things about Chatterbox is it’s a standout pink, but it’s not bright, neon, or overwhelming in any way. It’s great with a lighter smoky eye, or you can slick on a sheer nude gloss to mute the color a bit more, too, and pair it with a smoldering eye!

Is this the right pink for you? Would you wear it?

The Summer Season is a series of posts featuring bright, vibrant shades of coral, orange, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for a summer of fun — that runs through July 2010.

The Summer Season: MAC See Sheer Lipstick

MAC See Sheer Lipstick

The Summer Season: MAC See Sheer Lipstick

MAC See Sheer Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a slightly muted coral-orange with a glossy sheen.  It has a creamier look to it, as there is no noticeable shimmer in it.  It delivers nearly full-color coverage–you can just lightly see the freckle on my lower lip.  It wears very well and feels incredibly comfortable on–soft, moisturizing, clinging enough to wear for three to four hours, but not tight or drying.  It’s a fun way to wear coral without going full-on coral.

Is this the right coral for you? Would you wear it?

MAC Dazzle Lipstick
Dazzle Lipstick: Baby’s On Fire, Glaringly Hip, Hellraiser, Hot Sass, Infused with Glam

Preview: MAC Dazzle Lipstick & Dazzleglass from Digi-Pop

MAC Digi-Pops: Lip Server Collection is available for pre-order at your local Nordstrom. It doesn’t launch until July 15th, but pre-orders are in full swing. There are thirteen shades of new (and of course, limited edition!) Dazzle Lipsticks and seven shades (some new, some repromoted, but all limited edition) Dazzleglasses.

I didn’t test any of these my lips, so I really can’t comment on the wear or feel on the lips. (Sorry all, I couldn’t bring myself to use a tester — the germaphobe in me refused to participate!) The Dazzle Lipsticks did not feel gritty or rough when I swatched them–surprisingly smooth. They look like they varied from sheer to semi-sheer in color, but it’s difficult to know for sure just how sheer or opaque they may lean without swatching them on lips. (Which I fully intend to do, when I’m able to pick up my pre-order!)

Dazzle Lipstick ($14.00 U.S. / $16.50 CDN)

  • Baby’s On Fire is a sheer darkened ruby red with silver sparkle.
  • Glaringly Hip is a muted peach with brown undertones and pink and white glitter.
  • Hellraiser is a sheer, darkened mauve-plum with bluish-silver glitter.
  • Hot Sass is a semi-sheer, muted orange with reddish-copper glitter.
  • Infused with Glam is a warmed-up brown with red undertones and reddish glitter.
  • Liquid Lurex is a sheer yellow gray-gold with silver glitter.
  • Naughty You is a brightened medium pink with fuchsia glitter.
  • Smash Hit is a sheer beige-gold with darkened gold glitter.
  • Snazzy is a semi-sheer red plum with fuchsia-purple glitter.
  • Sweet Bits is a grayish lilac with multi-color glitter (predominantly light fuchsia). It’s kind of like Vex eyeshadow in lipstick form.
  • Troublemaker is a darkened red-pink with fuchsia glitter. It’s a darker, more opaque version of Naughty You.
  • Wham is a red-brown with gold and copper glitter.
  • Win-Win is a light baby pink with blue undertones and gold glitter.

Dazzleglass ($18.50 U.S. / $21.50 CDN)

  • Boys Go Crazy is a darkened plum-berry purple with iridescent purple and blue-violet glitter.
  • Fabulous Fun is a brightened fuchsia-pink with fuchsia-purple glitter.
  • Glamour OD is a brightened red with a touch of coral and pink glitter. This is a repromote.
  • Hi-Falutin’ is a softened peach-coral with gold glitter.
  • Spanking Rich is a softened pink mauve with fuchsia glitter. This is a repromote.
  • Utterly Posh is a darkened orange with a little brown and orange-gold glitter. This is a repromote.
  • You Got the Look is a brightened tangerine orange with almost teal glitter.

The Summer Season: MAC Crosswires Lipstick

MAC Crosswires Lipstick

The Summer Season: MAC Crosswires Lipstick

MAC Crosswires Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a lovely shade of coral-pink–it’s not super bright like Vegas Volt, but it’s not so muted that it ends up looking washed out.  It’s easily one of my favorite corals amongst MAC’s permanent line, too.  The cremesheen formula gives Crosswires a soft glistening sheen while still giving a good deal of color coverage on lips.  It’s about as opaque as a lipstick can get on my lips!   It even has this almost-there golden sheen.  It’s very, very subtle, but it’s most noticeable in the sunlight.

Is this the right coral lipstick for you? Would you wear it?
