MAC Huggable Lipcolour ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.) are supposed to be long-wearing for as long as six hours, pigmented, hug lips while providing a glossy finish that gives lips a “smooth and sculpted” appearance and “immediate moisture.” If you’re familiar with MAC’s lipstick formulas, I would describe this as a cross between the Cremesheen finish and Mineralize Rich Lipsticks. They wear a little longer than Mineralize Rich Lipsticks and Sheen Supremes, but they have a thinner, clingier consistency that is much more like the Cremesheen finished lipsticks; I don’t think they’re very similar to Sheen Supremes, as they have a lot more slip, creaminess, and a glossier shine. The consistency isn’t lightweight, because it’s noticeably there, as it does feel a bit gel-like, slightly glossy, but mostly… clingy–maybe I mean huggable. It’s a little tacky, too. I wouldn’t describe the consistency was creamy, as the bullet does skip and tug at the lips. The best way to apply is to rest the bullet against your lip for about five seconds, and then slowly pull to glide the color across the lips–this seemed to give me the best glide and smoothest results. I’ve only worn four so far, and I have eight to go, but these four were somewhat hydrating. They did not feel immediately hydrating to me; there was some hydration over time, though.
