MAC Warm & Cozy Collection: Lipsticks

I was pleasantly surprised by the texture and coverage of both Siss and Warm Me Up. Siss is permanent, by the way, so you don’t have to rush out and purchase that one if it catches your eye and you’re on a budget. (I didn’t own it previously, though, so I still picked one up.) My favorite was easily Warm Me Up — it’s totally a shade I’d gravitate towards, and the finish is truly lovely. Spiced Tea was definitely the disappointing one of the three.

  • Siss is a fleshy-beige with a peachy undertone. It reminded me of the color of foundation (well, a darker foundation than my own, I suppose). It’s not flattering on my lips, and I doubt I’d wear it alone — perhaps layered with a coral gloss or even a red.
  • Warm Me Up is a creamy medium pink with a little warmed-up yellow in it. I know MAC says it’s a neutral pink, but I think it has a lil’ warmth in it still! It has a nice amplified finish, so it’s rich in pigmentation and goes on smooth. It reminded me of a much pinker version of Brave New Bronze for some reason…
  • Spiced Tea is a semi-sheer coppery bronze with an orange warmth to it. It has a golden shimmer in it. I thought it wasn’t so bad at first, but on my lips, it looks a little splotchy. I just found it really trying to get an even finish/color with this particular shade.

Siss looks like its going to be my new one.

Also, something I was wondering about Creme d’Nude, is it fully pigmented like Siss lipstick is? I’ve seen loads of swatches on people, some light pink, some look unbearably sheer and some look just dull. Is Creme d’Nude anything like Siss?

I think I finally found a winner! Thankgod its a perm since I’m getting surgery soon on my leg so I won’t have to kill myself to get it immediately.

It is! It’s like every time you try to layer it on (I always just apply straight from the tube, ’cause let’s face it, that’s how most of us do it! — plus, it’s just for swatches), the shimmer budges one way, the color slips the other way… annoying!

Yeah i was just thinking the same thing. Esspecailly with Spiced Tea. I also think Siss looks a little too much concealer like but maybe thats just me. Id only get Warm me up. Seems lovley.

Warm Me Up is the kind of color I’ve been looking for for ages. I may well be the only thing I get from this collection. Why do I have the exact same taste in lip products as you? It’s dangerous! 😛

I use to have Siss, it is one of my earlier MAC purchases and my very first “nude” lipstick. Looking at the swatches, I may buy Warm Me Up lipstick because it does remind me of Brave New Bronze and I missed out on that one.

Warm Me Up looks nice, and I love Amplifieds. I’m not sure how it’ll look with my skin tone, but I’ll have to check it out next time I’m at MAC. I’ll probably get either Warm Me Up or one of the tinted lip conditioners.

I bought “Siss” lipstick a while ago. It’s definetly a SUPER nude lipcolour and has to be worn with a lipgloss lest you look lifeless.

The crazy thing is I’m a NW 20/25 (!) and I wear it with coral lipgloss but it doesn’t look weird if I have a strong or colored eyeshadow look.

Warm me up looks gorgeous. It’s not the color that I like to wear but I will make an exception cause it really looks nice on your lips :).Maybe it will look good on me too…although I’m kind of pale 🙂

so I lip swatched it the other day.. it’s kind of pinkier than it looks? I thought maybe it would be a more muted pink. but it looked super pink on me. so i passed =\

haha Siss looks just a shade or 2 darker than my own foundation..hahha but then again…i’m getting lighter

I really love Warm Me Up…i want it TT…i really love my Brave New Bronze, but a little pink looks better!

hmmm Spiced Tea my friend has that looks amazing on her…but did not show up on me TT it just looks like lipgloss faded on my lips..eww

I wish Spiced Tea looked better! I’m going to try it with a gloss on top, which I’m sure will help it along, but boo for it being so bleh! by itself.

Aww seeing how bright and light the Warm Me Up lipstick looks against you makes me sad! 🙁 Tell me, is Warm Me Up lipstick anything like a lipstick by MAC called Malt? Malt was a Satin(?) lipstick that MAC had all the way back in 2001. Malt looked like a permanent color at the time but I guess they discontinued it some years back! LOL

IMO, no, not really like Malt. I remember Malt (I think I may have a stub left, but I may have used it for B2M) being a lot more taupe/brown, I guess. This is kind of like a more coral version of Cosmo.

I’m an NC45 and I already have Siss but I have to mix that with a lip pencil or with Touch lipstick. I think that Siss suits people that are like two or three shades lighter than NC45. I bought Warm Me Up and I’ll use that one with either the Cremestick Liner lip pencil in Beurre or the Half Red lip pencil.

I highly recommend the Spiced Tea lipstick which is a Glaze, but don’t bother buying it if you already have the lipstick called Shag because Shag is very similar. I didn’t bother buying Spiced Tea because I have Shag somewhere.

Hi Christine, thanks for the great swatches! I really like Warm It Up but am wondering is it very similar to Hi Def lipstick? It looks like Warm It up is slightly pinker and more opaque?

Do you think Warm It Up is different enough to justify getting it if I already own Hi Def?

Thanks!

It’s definitely pinker and creamier – they’re different enough that I’d get both, but if you’re on a really tight budget, you could skip and maybe wait for a more distinct color!

I received the Warm Me Up lipstick as an early birthday present yesterday, it looks pinkier on me than it is on you. i’m an nc42 though.

Aww, I’m such a fan of this collection.. Funny but Warm me up looked on me pretty much like Spiced tea does on you. It’s my natural lip colour with a little brown..
Now is it worth 20$ to look like myself with a little bit of a bang?? IS IT? Arg decisions decisions..
