MAC Huggable Lipcolour
MAC Huggable Lipcolours

Here are four more shades of the new MAC Huggable Lipcolour ($20.00 for 0.11 oz.) formula that I’ve finished testing.  The new–and limited edition–formula is supposed to be long-wearing (up to six hours), have a glossy finish, leave lips looking and feeling hydrated and smooth.  To me, the formula is somewhere between MAC’s Cremesheen lipsticks and Mineralize Rich lipsticks.  These are somewhat hydrating with semi-sheer to semi-opaque color, last between two and five hours (lighter colors are quicker to disappear, deeper shades last longest), and have a consistency that’s a bit stiff.  The texture will tug and pull at the lip if you immediately try to glide it across lips; instead, I recommend pressing and holding for about five seconds, than gliding the bullet across lips as the warmth of your lip will help melt the color.  It does feel clingy–huggable–when worn, which is noticeable throughout the wear, but it is not drying.  Please see part one for a more in-depth review on the formula overall.

These are supposed to launch online on December 26th. The press release lists an in-store release date of January 2nd, though I would suggest checking with local counters/stores to ensure it’s not also releasing alongside Magnetic Nude (on December 26th). There are twelve shades available, with two shades being released everywhere but Asia (Rich Marron and Rusty), and two shades released exclusive to Asia (Extra Sweet and Sweet Creation).

Commotion is described as a “deep cool plum.” It’s a cool-toned, fuchsia berry with a soft shine. It had semi-opaque color coverage, applied evenly on the whole, and wore for five hours and left a slight stain behind. This is a fairly dupable color, so odds are, if this is the kind of color you gravitate towards, you may already have something similar in your stash. MAC Feeling Amorous? (LE, $20.00) is lighter. Revlon Whimsical (115) (P, $8.99) is similar. MAC Pleasure Bomb (LE, $16.00) is more opaque, brighter, matte. Guerlain Illusion (660) (LE, $35.00) is more shimmery. Revlon Plum Velour (P, $7.99) is more muted. Marc Jacobs Beauty Seduce Me (128) (P, $30.00) is glossier. Urban Decay Catfight (P, $22.00) is brighter, less cool-toned. Urban Decay Jilted (P, $22.00) is more iridescent. Revlon Sorbet (P, $7.49) is lighter. Guerlain Girly (P, $49.50) is brighter, pinker. See comparison swatches.

Feeling Amorous? is described as a “mid-tone fuchsia.” It’s a medium, fuchsia pink with slight cool undertones–it’s more like a muted fuchsia than a true fuchsia pink. It had a light shine and semi-sheer to semi-opaque color. The color lasted three and a half hours on me. MAC Commotion (LE, $20.00) is darker. Revlon Whimsical (115) (P, $8.99) is a bit darker. Revlon Berry Couture (P, $7.99) is lighter. Revlon Fuchsia Shock (P, $7.99) is pinker. Revlon Sorbet (P, $7.49) is very similar. Too Faced So Berry Sexy (P, $21.00) is less fuchsia. See comparison swatches.

Love Beam is described as a “mid-tone warm pink.” It’s a medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a subtle shine. It had semi-opaque color coverage and wore well for three hours on me. Tarte Tulip (P, $16.00) is warmer. Givenchy Rose Taffetas (201) (P, $36.00) is lighter. Chanel Surprenante (129) (P, $34.00) is frosted. Urban Decay Fiend (P, $22.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches.

What a Feeling! is described as a “mid-tone cool pink.” It’s a light-medium, blue-based pink with cool undertones and a soft shine. It was semi-sheer to semi-opaque, and this shade didn’t apply as evenly as the others. This shade only lasted for two and a half hours on me. Too Faced Razzle Dazzle Rose (P, $21.00) is very similar. Urban Decay Obsessed (P, $22.00) is a touch lighter, brighter. Revlon Cupcake (P, $7.49) is cooler-toned. NARS Roman Holiday (P, $26.00) is a touch lighter. MAC Divine Choice (P, $22.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

  1. loving how pretty feeling amorous looks!! I need that in my life <3
    Lisha Recently Posted: The Body Shop Vitamin E Body Butter Review & Swatch

  2. I think there’s a mistake in your captions above. It looks like the photos for Love Beam are captioned as Fresh & Frisky.

  3. Hi, Christine! I think one of these (or one in the last post) is mis-labeled, as there are two shades named “Fresh & Frisky.” I’m not sure if someone already said anything (I can’t see any comments on this post yet).

    Anyway, I love the Fresh & Frisky color from this post AND from the last post as well as a couple of other colors. I love them because they’re not full-on, opaque coverage. Would you say that the Revlon Lip Butters kind of feel/look the same way on lips? Maybe I can find drugstore dupes for these. If not, I’m going to have to splurge on one!

    • Fixed!

      It’s Love Beam, just to clarify :)

      Revlon Lip Butters are more comfortable to wear and, in general, glossier, but the color payoff is about the same, though if pressed, Revlon’s probably run sheerer.

  4. I love What A Feeling! It looks like it could possibly replace Revlon Strawberry Shortcake for me… which I love the color of but loathe the chalky consistency.

  5. Hmmm the packaging and look of this lipstick makes me feel like they’re trying to release their own version of UD’s Revolution lipsticks…

    xx -b.

  6. Hm… the colours are nice in principle, but I’m not sure if I’m happy with how patchy the darker ones come across… I think the more ‘nude’ shades from the previous post turned out better in terms of coverage (or the appearance of it).

  7. Whoa, gorgeous shades! I like all of them!

  8. i so love feeling amorous and commotion…I want it :) ur swatches and review are so good as always!!

    Love Beam looked really pretty in the promos but I think I’d actually prefer the finish of something more opaque like UD Fiend (I still haven’t tried any of the revolution lipsticks, I really should) or something from Givenchy or Chanel, that long wear… I’ve become such a lipstick snob. It was seriously a magical experience the first time I ate something and my lipstick didn’t disappear though.

  10. I think I need Commotion in my life! So pretty.

  11. Avatar of Ana Ana

    Christine, do you think What a Feeling! could work in a NC40 skin tone? Or is it too coll toned?

  12. Christine, so glad you reviewed these! For some reason I am greatly opposed to buying MAC products that are limited edition. But you’ve definitely just made up my mind to go buy Revlon Whimsical!

  13. Melissa

    These look gorgeous! Which colors do you think would suit fair skin/brown eyes/brown hair with copper undertones and highlights? I’m not a huge fan of warm-toned lip products.

    Thanks!

  14. Feeling Amorous? Lasted well about 6 hours on me. It is not prolongwear lipstick. So I was so amazed. It was not dried on lips. Awsome!
