MAC Fusion Pink Lipstick

The Summer Season: MAC Fusion Pink Lipstick

MAC Fusion Pink Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is truly a retina-burning kind of pinky-red.  I wanted to put some shades on when I was editing this in its original size, because I swear, my eyes were like, “Hey, this is rude!”  This shade is a cross between a vibrant reddish coral and iridescent fuchsia pink.  It’s almost as if the base is this ridiculously bright red-coral with an iridescent fuchsia sheen that further blinds you.  This is most certainly not a shade for those who don’t dive headlong into color!  Heads up, it’s a PRO shade, but anybody can order or shop at PRO stores.

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.

    Sure. Not for the faint hearted, but seriously sexy indeed. To be totally honest?
    I love it! :)

  2. Rachael

    I adore bright lipsticks, this is a must for me, im wearing girl about town at the mo and have show orchid on back up and oh then theres always vegas volt!

    • Mandy

      Show Orchid and Girl About Town are my FAVES! I’m lemming Vegas Volt — and now, Fusion Pink! :D

  3. Amber

    WOW!!! That is some bright lipstick, with my very fair skin I do not think I could pull it off at all!

  4. Lynn

    Christine, it looks gorgeous on you and your beautiful dark coloring, but I would look like a clown wearing that with my fair skin. I think those with a tan (or those that are quite confident) could pull it off nicely!

  5. Rachel

    Its obnoxiously bright and i LOVE IT :D

  6. It looks beautiful!!! Major lemming coming on.

  7. Marie

    Wow, just wow, this is such a vibrant color. It looks great on you with subtle eye make-up. I wish I could pull this off. :p

  8. Jennifer

    I like this shade, vibrant and pretty :)

  9. Azaza

    Wow that is just amazingly bright. Not sure if I can wear that

  10. Elysia

    is this shade permanent? I love it!!!! it want it so much!

  11. Lauren

    I think it’s beautiful! Especially on you Christine! Is this a permanent color?

    wow it is bright, it seems like MAC impassioned and Nars funny face had a child to me!

  13. Yvonne

    LOVE THAT SHADE. looks awesome on you and makes your teeth look super bright!! good pick

  14. I need this lipstick!!!! Unfortunately it’s very dificult to find here at Brasil. But i’ll have it!! It’s a promisse!

  15. I LOVE it!! As a girl who strictly rocks neutrals, I’ve been going crazy for colorful lipsticks lately. I swear that I’ve been naughty with colors because of this blog (thank you!). I guess I decided that my makeup needed to be more vibrant so I’ve been dabbling into the world of hot pinks, bright pinks, reds, and whatever is in between. I realized color is not the threat, it’s just fun! By the way, you make it look gorgeous (so now I feel obligated to buy this one!).

  16. That colour on you is super pretty. I actually don’t find it rude at all (as in too bright). Love love love. I might pick this up for dance competitions (where bright lipstick is a bit of a must). Think this would look good on my NW15 skin?

  17. Gigi

    Ahhh so pretty, thanks for sharing! I think I’m slowly getting addicting to this shade, I love it.

  18. I’m probably in the minority here, but I actually quite like this colour. I may have to add it to my arsenal.

    Christine, Do you happen to know how it compares to Utter Fun? I picked that one up last fall, and I’ve used it about two times. It’s just sooo bright! They look like they might be similar.

  19. Love it! Will check it out when I’m next at a Mac counter!

  20. Jenn

    I love it!! I couldnt find this color on their website. Is it a pro color?
    Thanks for sharing :-)

  21. keana

    U can soooo wear this color

  22. Avatar of aradhana aradhana

    is this a permanent shade?

  23. Sabrina

    Oooh, I like it! Adding it to my list of things to ckeck out at MAC next time I go. :)

  24. Wow! This looks surprisingly pretty on the lips!

  25. Avatar of Sherri Sherri

    That color compliments you well :)

  26. halo

    you can sure rock a bright lipstick this is a little to metallicie for me lol but it looks great on you can you reccomend some good corals sheer to opaue and not too bright i know the right coral would look nice with my skintone and hair but i have yet to find the right one

  27. That is a great color! I love how crazy bright it is.

  28. christine, that is utterly gorgeous on you!

  29. Avatar of Deb Deb

    Pretty pretty! It reminds me just a bit of the Hello Kitty Big Bow lipstick, except with better coverage and no glitter. Okay, maybe they aren’t that similar. But they both have that fuchsia glow!

  30. Lesley

    wow thats very bright i have to wear shades to look at that lol.

  31. Stacie

    I have this color and I love it (NW20/redhead). It’s a great color to wear with a LBD.

    Christine – it looks fab on you!

  32. OMG I am in love. *~Swoon~*

  33. PeachBellini

    LOVING this shade, it’s suitably loud and vibrant. Waaaaant!:)

  34. Avatar of Brenda Brenda

    You wear it well!!!

  35. Mandy

    Christine, what finish is this?

  36. Hi Christine, how does Fusion Pink compare to Impassioned? I have Impassioned and it turns neon bright on me to – I wonder which of the two is brighter :D

  37. That color is gorgeous!! I have been wanting Fusion Pink l/s for a very long time!!

  38. Nancy

    Love it! But exactly how do you get your hands on this lipstick? To buy online at MAC Pro you must be a member, as in a pro MUA with credentials. Will a regular MAC store or the MAC counter in a department store order this? More info, please.

    • I call a local PRO store or shop at the PRO store in person. You don’t have to be a PRO member to purchase PRO products :)

      • Rachael

        Ordering PRO isn’t too bad if you haven’t got a store (I don’t there is only one in London) I have rung up and ordered MAC PRO (not sure what number it would be in USA but i just rang a store and it had an option for phone orders)they are really helpful and its just like a normal person you dont have to be anyone special!

  39. Rebecca

    Oh my gosh. This colour is beautiful!

    But we don’t have a Pro Store in Austria. :-(
    hm.. :-(

  40. Liza

    This color is ridiculous; I love it. Are there any dupes or near-dupes that come close? Thanks, Christine!

  41. abby

    i honestly think this lipstick looks beautiful on you :)

  42. abby

    Christine you can wear anything because everything looks absolutely beautiful on you!!

  43. melissa

    What finish is this? Am I missing it? Just wondering in terms of how drying or moisturizing it is, cause the colour is stunning! Thanks Christine!

  44. Alyssa

    This is GORGEOUS. I want it… no, I NEED it.

  45. Jaki

    Love love love this colour. I am NW15 and into brights, love Impassioned and Lady Danger (although as matte find LD a bit too drying). Picked this up today @ the MAC Pro Store in London and the best bit was I got it with ‘Back to Mac’

  46. Chassy

    I’m gonna be purchasing two of these lipsticks (one to use and one to keep forever), since this is the lipstick that prompted me to visit the MAC Pro store, which resulted in my discovery of the MAC Pro Student Card. Today I’m gonna make copies of all of my paperwork, and tomorrow I’ll be sending in an application! Yay! :D

  47. Pang

    I like it and I’d wear it but only on special occasion.

  48. allison

    love this color on you!!!!

  49. Caroline

    I’d be interested in any dupes, if you know of any. Same price point or less. Just easier accessibility. Or maybe something a couple shades lighter?

  50. Rutie

    I love the color soooo much! Is this a limited edition?

  51. abby

    Hi Christine! Do you know how many lipsticks and lipglosses i have purchased after seeing them on you? soooo many! and this will be another one!! :D

  52. Avatar of Giovanna Giovanna

    Totally in love with this lippie!

  53. Avatar of artemis artemis

  55. Rachel
