MAC Chatterbox Lipstick

The Summer Season: MAC Chatterbox Lipstick

MAC Chatterbox Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is an opaque, pretty-in-pink lipstick. It’s a smidgen on the cooler side, but it’s a rather neutral pink overall. It has a creamy feel while still clinging to lips–the slight creaminess keeps it from being drying. One of the best things about Chatterbox is it’s a standout pink, but it’s not bright, neon, or overwhelming in any way. It’s great with a lighter smoky eye, or you can slick on a sheer nude gloss to mute the color a bit more, too, and pair it with a smoldering eye!

Is this the right pink for you? Would you wear it?

Girl About Town lipstick is a creamy, opaque hot pink. To me this is one of the overall must-have lipsticks, period.

Impassioned lipstick is a bright hot pink that runs a little warmer, a little more orange-red tone to it. It has a super creamy finish, and it is ultra pigmented.
