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?

The Summer Season is a series of posts featuring bright, vibrant shades of coral, orange, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for a summer of fun — that runs through July 2010.

    This lipstick is soooo pretty! I don’t know why I returned it the first time; and still ended up repurchasing it because it’s so pretty. It looks great on you =)

  5. Mel

    How pretty! I want it!

  6. Kerri

    I’ve been meaning to buy this shade for a while now but every time I go to Mac I get distracted by all the pretty colors I forget about it. I should really start bringing a list when I go.

    Christine, can you ask community a question about favorite looks for a specific eye color in combo with a specific skin tone? For example, what are people’s fav eyeshadows for blue, hazel, etc color of eyes in combination with cool, warm complexion.
    Sorry for posting it here, I cannot figure out how to submit this idea for “Temptalia Asks You” forum.

    i have chatterbox and i just got it out to compare, and maybe it’s my screen but it looks a lot paler and closer to a baby pink in your pictures when in reality it’s a lot more of a richer true pink. Is it my screen or does anyone else think so too?

    • The pictures look like the way mine does, but our lip colors could differ, so that might be why it looks different on lips?

    • Deborah

      I agree. Even when I swatch this l/s on my hand, it looks a lot brighter than the swatches on my computer screen.

    This is my favorite MAC lipstick! It’s the perfect bright pink for my pigmented lips. Love it!

  10. Tatiana

    This is a beautiful pink. I would buy this. Do you think it would work for darker skintones such as NC50?

  11. eblu

    Hey Christine, how does chatterbox compare with Angel?

  12. Laurels

    It is a beautiful lipstick! I have it myself. Sometimes I layer it on top of Revlon’s Peach Petal Superlustrous gloss and I get a very nice soft pink.

  13. Azaza

    Oh wow that looks so pretty, I want to buy that lippie

  14. Tanya

    I don’t have this one–how does it compare to Viva Glam GAGA? I <3 that one, and to my eye they look similar, especially on the lip.

  15. Jessica

    I love this color! I like pinks, especially light bright pinks, what is a good lipglass to wear this with?

  16. Pretty pink! How does it compare to Viva Glam Gaga?

  17. Nora

    My all-time favorite MAC lipstick! Such a pretty bright, tropical pink, I love it!

  18. Wilcoa

    Love this pink though I always hope to stumble across a lipgloss version since I’m not a huge lipstick wearer.

  19. Zoe

    AH i need this!

  20. Karin

    How similar is to the the Lady Gaga Viva Glam?

  21. chiffonrobot

  30. Annalisa

    oh it looks soooo pretty on you!!!!!!
    I love pink lipsticks and I love Chatterbox, but I already have Speed Dial and they are pretty similar, in my opinion.

  31. Patricia

  32. Jazmin

  34. vikaki

  35. Rachel

    Hi, could someone tell me what this color is called? I am trying to find a really nice light pink. Thank you

  36. Aqua

    This looks gorgeous on you!

  37. do you think chatterbox is great on light-medium warm skin tone?
    i love it, but im not sure if it is good for me,
    i hAve bpught lovelorn and its awesome, just the perfect pink, not to bright, not to fair(:
    chatteerbox looks really good on you! you are so pretty(:

  38. This lipstick looks so similare (almost a low-end dupe) to a lipstick I have, Maybelline Sensational in 162 Feel Pink. πŸ˜› I love that color. <— this lipstick.

    :/ Too bad, feel pink is a bit old now so I dont think I can use it (its smell a bit funny compared to another maybelline lipstick I own).

    I will start buying MAC lipstick soon and Chatterbox gonna be one of them. πŸ˜€ But since I am not so girly with liptick,so I think I will wait getting the brighter pinks. πŸ˜›

    Skintone: If mac had lighter foundations, i would be N10 or something. N15 & N20 are too dark :/

  39. christine, do you have a light pink with coral,
    i find this :
    or any shadre (from mac) that is light pink with some coral in it!?
    thankks a loot!
