MAC Fashion Force, Love Feeling, Soft Talkin’ Huggable Lipcolours
Here are the next three shades I have to review of MAC Huggable Lipcolour ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.), which is supposed to have shine, color, and long-wear (‘up to six hours”). The formula has a “gel base” for a “feather-light finish giving immediate moisture.” Fashion Force is a repromote, but the other two shades are new; all three are limited edition and will launch online on May 7th and in-stores on May 14th. The formula clings without feeling dry or uncomfortable, but it doesn’t have as much slip as a lot of glossy, balm-like formulas do, so it does wear a bit longer, though rarely the full six hours. It is lightly to moderating hydrating over time. The color coverage varies but tends to be semi-opaque. You’ll want to let the bullet melt against the warmth of your lips for a few seconds before applying, as this will help it glided across the lips.
MAC Fashion Force Huggable Lipcolour ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “soft tangerine orange.” It’s a muted, medium coral-orange with warm undertones and a light shine. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque pigmentation that sat well on the lips and looked even. This shade wore well for three and a half hours and was lightly hydrating. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
MAC Love Feeling Huggable Lipcolour ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “vibrant deep orange.” It’s a brightened, medium orange with warm, yellow-red undertones and a soft sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage that went on fairly evenly and wore well for five hours. The formula felt lightly moisturizing while worn. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
MAC Soft Talkin’ Huggable Lipcolour ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.) is described as a “warm peachy nude.” It’s a muted, light-medium peach with warm undertones and soft gold pearl. It had semi-sheer color coverage that lightened my natural lip color while brightening and adding warmth, but this is the type of translucency and color that is likely going to look different depending on the natural color of your lips. It wore well for three hours and had a slightly more emollient formula compared to the other shades in the range. It was a harder shade to dupe with how it leans peach with more color than sheer but less than opaque. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
