Editor's Review

MAC Powder Kiss Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.10 oz.) is supposed to feel "weightless" with a "blur of effortless soft-focus color." Per the brand, the formula "provides immediate and long-term hydration" while "blur[ring] lines and smooth[ing] lips" and having "zero-shine." They have a bit of shine and slip; I wouldn't call them zero-shine so much as very smooth and more like a natural or soft matte finish. Like any finish with slight shine, they did wear down to a more, flat matte finish within an hour or so of wear. The consistency was lightweight, thin, and velvety with a bit of slip (a little like a silicone primer to me) and was comfortable to wear with a non-drying to lightly hydrating feel.

The pigmentation ranged from semi-opaque to opaque with deeper shades having more coverage. ... Read More.

The pigmentation ranged from semi-opaque to opaque with deeper shades having more coverage. There were a few very light shades, which did not apply as evenly and had a tendency to catch on any imperfections on my lips, whereas the deeper shades went on more smoothly and looked more flattering on as they were less likely to emphasize texture. They lasted between two and a half and six hours with deeper shades, unsurprisingly, lasting longer than the ultra-light ones.

I personally found the scent of these to be noticeably different, both that it was sweeter and less vanilla-based but I also got a strong rubber scent that came through. The scent did not linger for long, so it wasn't something that I detected throughout the wear, but it had a strong, sweet taste that was present until it was gone. Other readers who have smelled the formula in person did not catch any rubber/off-putting scent (my husband thought it smelled weird, not bad per se, but couldn't be more specific), and when I went back to double check each shade, each one of mine still had that rubbery note.

Matte, totally reinvented. Delivering a romantic blur of soft-focus colour, this weightless moisture-matte lipstick was developed to replicate a backstage technique: blending out edges of matte lipstick for a hazy effect. Its groundbreaking formula contains moisture-coated powder pigments that condition and hydrate lips. The result is the zero-shine look of a matte lipstick with the cushiony, lightweight feel of a balm. Fall for this all-new soft-touch, misty matte kiss of colour.

I like the idea of these blurry lipsticks. However, at least with this colour, it clings to any dry bits on the lips which kind of ruins the Korean lip effect.

I'm like a mix of NC42 and NC44 (in Fenty I'm 300 with a little 360) This is not cute on you if you have even the slightest uneven pigmentation on your lips. My natural lip color is basically the MAC Kinda Sexy shade with very little pigmentation around the edges of the lips, so basically, the middle portion is the palest. That\'s the spot where a bright patch of this vivid red just flashed, and it just looks pretty weird to me when I look closer. Someone with more visible lip pigmentation will probably have a much more frustrating time with this. I\'m a Neutral Cool undertone, but for whatever reason, this color just looks odd on me (I bought this thinking it was a little more vivid and cool than Ruby Woo). Another reason why I found this frustrating is because the Sheer lipsticks of MAC are actually really good, and this one is supposed to look matte but apply, spread and feel like your typical sheer lipstick, but this shade in particular just seems more lackluster? The darker, deeper, more pink or brown shades are probably more brown girl friendly than the brighter ones. Other than that, I do see that this swatches and feels amazing, but to me, this doesn't feel like a $18 lipstick at all.
