MAC Honeyflower Lipstick

The Spring Season: MAC Honeyflower Lipstick

MAC Honeyflower Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a warmed-up, peachy brown with an almost gold sheen to it. Honeyflower has a lustre finish, so it has that slightly frosty, shimmery-sheen look to it. It is surprisingly pigmented–definitely one of the better lustre finishes I’ve tried–and goes on pretty opaque. I think this is a great shade for darker skin tones and warmer skin tones in particular.

Is this the right brown lipstick for you? Would you wear it?

The Spring Season is a series of posts featuring my favorite soft beige, coral, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for the first blossom of spring — that runs through March 2010.

    i NEED that!

  2. Wow… that’s really pretty. I may need to add that to my collection…

  3. I’m colorblind, so I’m never quite sure about what colors work for me. The shade I’m seeing, though, looks pretty.

  4. This is a beautiful lustre! Is this lipstick permanent or LE?

  5. Meesh

    Wow, I’ve been eyeing but wasn’t sure. I need to put down on my things to get when I go out friday.

    Hey! Quick question: how do you prep your lips for when there is no lip liner being used? I mean, for all my lipsticks (which is like a grand total of five or so) I always have a matching lip liner that makes the lipstick look puuurfect. So what do you do?

    I have this and I really like this juicy peachy tangerine shade.

    is this available now???

    Psst… You typed “Honeylove” when I think you meant to type “Honeyflower.” It’s in the second line of the description. Sorry!

    Sooo pretty. Another one I’ve been wanting for a while. It’s definitely on my list.

  11. lameka

    i so need that like now!

  12. That’s a colour I normally wouldn’t go for, but it looks so nice. Ever since I bought MAC’s Ever Hip lipstick, I’m really starting to feel these oranges and corals.

  13. Tiffany

    that’s really pretty.

    I love the colour, but I don’t like the finish. I find that lip sticks (and glosses) with too much frost makes my lips look horribly unattractive. I tend to look best in shades that have more orange or coral to them, and this looks like it might suit my skin tone nicely.

    Would you (or other readers!) have any recommendations for similar shades with more of a cream or subtle shimmer finish? Around the same price range or lower if possible!

    What is the best coral/slight orange colour lipstick/lipgloss/liner from mac?

  16. Jessie

    What collection is this from Christine? Or is it a permanent colour?

  17. allison

    Very pretty Christine….I have this one on my list, but somehow it keeps getting moved closer and closer to the bottom. I need to check this one out! 😀

  18. a_cute_princess

    Pretty, Thats a nice neutral color. Wish my lips weren’t pigmented so much, so i could wear light colors.

  19. Jami

    This is pretty!! I think I’m gonna have to get it. I love that you do these reviews on not new products because I see things that I would have probably looked over otherwise.

  20. Donna

    Pretty! I think that would work for most skintones!

  21. leslie

    Do you think that color would work on thats NC42? What blushes and glosses would go with that? I never wear colors like that.Just deep pinks and berries.

  22. Lynniekae

    Lovin’ it! I think I may do this one instead of the Guerlain and save $30 :-)

  23. Mia

    OH! Want it!

  24. Alison

    I really, REALLY like this one on you!

  25. This colour is absolutely riveting without screaming “too bold” :)

  26. Angela

    Christine, I’m super bummed that I heard this lipstick was discontinued. I wish i had been a regular reader on your blog last year and I could have picked it up then! Can u recommend any good dupes for this? I loved the lip color when you layered this w/ nymphette lipglass & did smokey eyes. i’m trying to do this look for myself. thansk for all of your hard work on this site, by the way, it’s been incredibly helpful for us make up junkies :)
