MAC Luxurious Pink Lip Look Bag
MAC Luxurious Pink Lip Look Bag

Rich, Luxurious Pinks Galore

MAC Luxurious Pink Lip Look Bag ($39.50) contains Lickable (lipstick, bright, clean blue pink), Call Me Gorgeous (Cremesheen Glass, bright fuchsia with gold pearl), and Great Catch (lip pencil, bright cream fuchsia).

The lipstick is 0.10 oz. (full-sized), Cremesheen Glass is 0.09 oz. (full-sized), and the lip pencil is 0.02 oz. (full-sized is 0.05 oz.). The value of the three products is $40.50, and then you also get a vinyl bag with leopard-print and pink satin that peeks through it.

Lickable is a bright blue-based fuchsia pink with mostly opaque color coverage and a natural sheen. This shade has a Cremesheen finish, and it is part of the permanent range. Tom Ford Aphrodisiac is darker, redder. MAC Insanely It is redder. MAC Gulabi is similar. MAC Catharina is lighter. MAC Full Fuchsia is a smidgen redder. Tom Ford Pure Pink is a touch darker.

Call Me Gorgeous is a blue-based, medium magenta pink with gold shimmer. It has semi-opaque color coverage and while it settles slightly into lip lines, it isn’t noticeable at a distance. MAC Full Speed Ahead is more opaque and a little cooler-toned. MAC Sassy Lassy is a lot lighter. MAC True Babe is more blue-based. YSL Pure Hibiscus is similar but has no shimmer.

Great Catch is a dark fuchsia-red with a modern matte finish (barest of sheens, but still, mostly matte).

When layered together, the result is a vibrant, medium-dark fuchsia pink with sparkle and a glossy sheen.  The whole combination wore for seven hours, though the glossy sheen wore off within an hour.  There was a slight stain left behind.  MAC really delivered on a luxurious pink lip look here.

I wish Cremesheens worked better on me!  Lickable lasts six hours on its own, and while I didn’t experience hydration, I didn’t find it particularly drying, which was a nice surprise (I usually find Cremesheens slightly drying!).  It does pull a little at lips when you go to apply the color, but it does eventually apply more fluidly as the temperature of your lips heat it up.  Call Me Gorgeous wore for two hours when I tested it, which is short for wear.  Great Catch wears long and well, but again, it’s not a very comfortable formula on its own as it tends to cling to lips and doesn’t add any moisture.

A-
MAC really delivered on a luxurious pink lip look here! All three products have good color payoff, and while Cremesheens can be drying on me, Lickable was neither drying nor hydrating. Call Me Gorgeous wears off quickly, which may or may not be a deal-breaker for you.

    wow! end result is gorgeous! looks great against your skin tone

  2. I had my eyes on this one, so glad to see it delivers well!

  3. Whoop! Now we’re talking! Glad to see one hit among everything they put out!

  4. kasiaj85

    WOW! all of them together on your lips = stunning!!!!!

  5. Georgina

    Christine do you think this would be too bright on fair skin – NW20? I’d love to get this set but will not be able to swatch them. Thank you for putting up all the reviews and swatches so quickly!

  6. Liz

    So pretty! =)

  7. Sara

    Lickable is my favorite lipstick! I feel duty bound to buy this set now lol, I wanna make it look even better.

    Will you be reviewing Divine Desire Quite Coral kit as well?

  8. Teresa

    Cristine has MAC changed the packaging of their lipsticks in their permanent range products as well?

  9. AnGeLwInGz

    That set is fantastic! The colors compliment each other so well, and it looks great on you. Complete with the adorable bag it’s so much fun. I really wish I could pull off a bright fuschia like that. It’s gorgeous!

  10. I just don’t think these lip sets are a good value at all. Like a lot of this holiday collection, they’re seriously overpriced!

  11. An

    Wow, I love the lip look after you combined all the products in one look.

  12. Kafka

    I think the bag looks incredibly cheap but that lipstick is lovely and the last photo with all three combined…. spectacular!! The colour in that last photo looks a lot like MAC’s Pink Poodle lipstick which I think is now discontinued.

  13. blueraccoon

    It’s cute and all, although the colors are a little bright for me. This seems like a better deal than most of the other palettes MAC has released so far this holiday.

  14. Carrie Ann

    So pretty. I’m glad I got this one. The bag is really cute, too.

  15. crystallinity

    Looks really nice on you, Christine.

  16. Kestrel

    How does it compare to MAC Girl About Town?

  17. Jade

    I have Lickable and it looks so different on me! It’s a much darker pink, the lipstick alone on me looks more like the colour of the three layered products on you, Christine. I would imagine that it’s because I’m NC15 haha.

  18. Monika

    FYI, Girl About Town is a pretty close dupe for Lickable on my NC42 skin. I just checked this lip bag out because I wanted to see if it was worth buying, and I made a point to swatch Girl About Town next to Lickable. They looked about the same on me, but Lickable is sheerer and has more of a sheen to it (makes sense!). Just wanted to let everyone know since I know a lot of people love and own Girl About Town already!

      I second what you say, I have also swatched Girl about town which I already own next to lickable and I could hardly tell any difference, they are the same color with different finish. They look the same in my NC15 skin, I don´t know if I need both…

  19. The bag is so cute and I love the loud pink lips!

  20. I don’t like the bag, I do like what’s inside!:) but I think this color will be too pink for me :(

  21. VickyM

    I already have Girl about Town which is extremely similar to lickable on me…however the whole set together looks so lovely I´m very tempted, you look stunning in that last picture Christine, the products combined look spectacular on you :D .

  22. Lizz

    I am in love with the Cremesheen Glass but I would never wear the lip stick nor lip liner :/ I wish there was a way I could just purchase the glass.

  23. keonna

    This color is also very simular to “rare exotica” which is another limited edition color that MAC came out some months back. i purchased this and have been debating on returning it. i booked an appt and the guy used it on me and i loved it. only to return from my lunch to realize i have 3 lipsticks almost the same shade. no major difference. :-( i agree with most who say this collection is over priced! OAN i also purchased the vice pallete by urban decay..im totally disappointed with that as well. i get mad fall out and colors appear chalky. nice packaging tho :-(

  24. kristina

    I am totally lusting over this! I dont know if I can justify the price tag though. Beautiful color

  25. Joyce

    Just hopped by after you tweeted a post about Valentine’s Day lippies. But oh my goodness you are absolutely stunning in these photos!

  26. MAC Lickable Lipstick will be my next buy :-)
    beautiful shade
