MAC Kiss & Don’t Tell Lipglass

MAC Kiss & Don’t Tell Lipglass ($16.50 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright coral.” It’s a vibrant pink-coral with subtle warm undertones and a cream finish. MAC Star Quality is darker with more red in it. OCC Trollop is brighter, more opaque. MAC Viva Glam Nicki is lighter, pinker.

It has mostly opaque color coverage with some underlying translucency. The color settled somewhat into lip lines but was not particularly noticeable from a normal viewing distance. It did apply evenly and smoothly, though. Kiss & Don’t Tell was the first color I tested for today, and it wore for three hours. Β The consistency was on the thicker side (but consistent with Lipglass), tacky, and neither hydrating nor drying.

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Serious question – does ANY lip color look bad on you? Can you name one? lol. This looks great on you but I think it would look wayyyy too orange on me.
