MAC Silly Lipstick
MAC Silly Lipstick

MAC Silly Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “bright pink cream.” It’s a brightened, medium pink with a barely-there sheen that turns mostly matte after a half hour of wear. It has subtle blue undertones but doesn’t pull too cool-toned such that it borders on lavender. Chanel Kensington is darker and more luminous. NYX Pink Lyric is also darker and has a glossier shine. MAC Divine Choice is lighter. MAC Pink Nouveau is cooler-toned–bluer. MAC Naughty Saute is also bluer-based.

Silly has opaque color coverage that looks even and smooth. There’s a subtle sheen after it is initially applied, but it definitely fades away quickly and leaves behind a very matte finish. It has a lightly creamy consistency that made it so the color didn’t drag when I applied it, but it doesn’t feel heavy when worn and it clings to lips (but not in a drying, clingy kind of way) to help the color adhere better and longer. I plan to test this shade late this afternoon (I just put on the Lipglass), so I’ll update with a specific wear time after I’ve finished testing it, but based on prior experience with MAC’s formula and this finish, I would expect five hours of wear or so.

For those who find MAC's brighter pinks too cool-toned or bordering on lavender/lilac, you may appreciate Silly's subtler cool undertone.

    I hope this works on nc42. Cyy works on me, nicki Minaj doesn’t.

  9. Ellie

    This is the kind of pink shade that I’ve been waiting. I love the color of pink nouveau but sometimes it’s too cool leaning on lilac so I think silly is the perfect light bubblegum pink lipstick for me.

    Love the lipstick, but someone at MAC has an off eye. The nail polishes do not match the lipstick. Strange, still pretty tho.

  11. Cai

    This should have been a Betty Cooper lipstick!

  13. Sheena

    hi Christine! I always look for your swatches!! how do Silly compared to Viva Glam Nicki Minaj 1? Thanks a bunch!!

  14. This is such a stunning color and a definite need for my lipstick stash. It’s perfect for those nights out and just for an every day color actually when I’m feeling more bold than usual.

  21. Avatar of Molly Molly

    You pull off so many colors I could NEVER wear! Love it. I kind of live vicariously though you.

  22. Avatar of Rad Rad

    So i bought this and it looks horrible against my indian skin – its too pale pink neon. Warmer skin tones beware.

  23. Absolutely gorgeous! The silly lipstick goes on like a dream and wears beautifully; the pencil is a perfect match and gives a gorgeous dead-matte look when worn alone.
