Editor's Review

MAC Burning Love Powder Kiss Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a deep plum with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had excellent pigmentation that adhered evenly to my lips and applied fluidly without catching on imperfections or getting into my lip lines. The lipstick had a velvety, lightweight consistency that had enough slip to glide but never felt slippery when worn. The color stayed on nicely for six hours and was slightly moisturizing.

Claims / Ingredients

Matte, totally reinvented. Delivering a 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 soft-touch, misty matte kiss of colour.

MAC Burning Love is a medium-dark berry-plum shade (a dark raspberry), with slightly cool undertones and a satin-creamy finish. It's one of those colors that aren't universality flattering; it needs paired down with specific eyeshadow colors and won't look good on everybody. I'm light-medium with yellow warm undertones and Burning Love doesn't look that good on me, it looks too pinky-plum. As a fan of MAC Mate and Satin lipsticks, I was disappointed by the Powder Kiss formula (it reminds me more of Creamsheen). The texture is velvety-powdery and I just don't like it on my lips, it's matte in finish but slippery, I doesn't completely dry out (although it's not sticky) and it moves as I drink, eat or talk. I can feel it on my lips all day long. I need to use it more like a lip tint, in a very light layer. I agree that the pigmentation is excellent from the first swipe on the lips, and it wears out decently well during the day. It's overall a little moisturizing, but it's not as comfortable as the MAC Mate finish lipsticks.
