Its a beautiful wine red color but I was displeased to find that this color has been released by MAC just with a different name. I hate when companies release the same product labeled with a new name. Studded Kiss is an exact dupe of MAC’s Fixed On Drama from the
Retro Matte Collection and Dark Side. And Riri Hearts MAC Heaux might be another dupe. I have yet to swatch that one side by side with Studded Kiss but I assume its dupable too. I guess it will be years before I have to go out and buy another wine colored lipstick.
MAC Studded Kiss Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “dark oxblood red [with a Matte finish].” It’s a medium-dark, red-burgundy with a fairly matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage, but there was a smidgen of the natural lip color coming through. On me, it lasted for six hours with a bit of feathering after five hours, and it was very slightly drying. This shade has been released previously.
