It’s interesting because the swatches seem semi-sheer but then on the lips they seem opaque. Going by the swatches, they look like they have more of a Lustre finish, but maybe it’s because of the pearl mixed in? Are these part of the new Cremesheen Pearls that came out? I’m getting confused and MAC needs to slow down, dangit.

Anyway, I’m eyeing Pillow Talk and Heaux and/or Quelle Surprise. Depending on the rating and how hydrating or at least non-drying they are, I may be heading down to the MAC counter very soon for swatching and buying.

These are so interesting and beautiful! I love how most have a shimmer or luminescent finish instead of either matte or Lustre formulas for a change. Love how Quelle Surprise, Heaux and Royally Riotous look applied. Seems like each has a contrasting pearl, most noticeable with Royally Riotous. Anxiously awaiting your verdict on these!

I just wish the Cremesheen formula lasted better/was less drying! Here’s hoping these are better, though ๐Ÿ™‚

I guess I’m pretty lucky that the Cremesheen formula doesn’t dry out my lips, but I do find that they need re-application at roughly 3 hours, give or take. If I’m not mistaken, I saw on MAC’s website that Royally Riotous is an Amplified? Which would make it a definite “yes” for me!

Yes is an amplified!! I’ve ordered from the website, cause in Italy is online exclusive…can’t wait to receive it…on my account they said shipped, i’m waiting for tracking number… But YES it is amplified….while pillow talk is creemsheen… ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks Christine! The arm swatches look very sheer but on your lips they seem to cover quite well. Which is true? Are they pigmented or sheer?

The uniform dots on the Pillow Talk lipstick make me wonder what the manufacturing process for this is like haha. The first one reminds me of Givenchy’s Couture Edition lipstick!

When is this colection coming out??
I’m really liking Pillow talk, Royally Riotous, Quelle surprise and flower scope

Oops never mind I see they launched already. I didn’t even look at the entire collection I thought it was just shadows, which I have a ton of.

I LOVE the colors of Flowerscope, Heaux, and Quelle Surprise, but I hate the Cremesheen formula. Why, MAC, why? I’ll just have to wait for dupes (chances are I have some already, at least for Heaux and Quelle Surprise).

Wow. They are all lighter than I thought. Royally Riotous is the most opaque one. Is it me or almost all of them have little specks of glitters? I don’t like glitters. ๐Ÿ™ and Heaux is lighter than the RiRi Heaux.

Hi I have a question about pillow talk lipstick. I wear NC45 mac foundation and I wanted to know if that would be a good color for me?

Thank you for your answer. I know it isn’t in stores yet but I didn’t want to buy it online and then not like it and have to return it.

I have Pillow Talk from a previous collection and if it’s the same one, I think it’s a perfect nude beige for brown girls. I would use a liner with it or you will look washed out. I am NC50 for reference. Hope that helps!

Just FYI, I ordered Heaux and both the box and the tube say it is an Amplified finish I tried asking MAC (the website says it’s a creamsheen) they insisted it was a creamsheen…maybe someone can get a straight answer out of them!

Every MAC Lipstick I have ever wanted has sold out. True story. That said, I’ve got my eye on Pillow Talk!

It was really difficult picking out colors without your guidance and swatches. I’ve been so dependant on you for color choices. Makes me appreciate you even more. I went with royally rioutous & quelle surprise they are really nice. Very creamy & pigmented.

The little wholes in ‘Pillow Talk’ make me think of a clothes iron, lol. *Snap out of it* I think Royally Riotous is a very interesting shade!

Isn’t Pillow Talk a repromote? I think I already have it that one from another collection.

Loving Flowerscope. That will be beautiful in the Fall.

Thanks
Sharon

I really like the three firs ones a lot. And the last one, Royally Rioteous. The two more neutral ones aren’t for me. Colours like that makes me look like a dead zombie ๐Ÿ™‚

Some of these look awesome! I’m actually digging Heaux as an amplified more than the matte…
Is it just me or did MAC raise their prices again super recently?? I’ve been stalking which lipstick to pick up next and I noticed that all the permanent colors are now $17 not $16. The Veluxe-a-Trois are still $16 but all the permanents are higher now… :/
