The Summer Season: MAC Chatterbox Lipstick

MAC Chatterbox Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is an opaque, pretty-in-pink lipstick. It’s a smidgen on the cooler side, but it’s a rather neutral pink overall. It has a creamy feel while still clinging to lips–the slight creaminess keeps it from being drying. One of the best things about Chatterbox is it’s a standout pink, but it’s not bright, neon, or overwhelming in any way. It’s great with a lighter smoky eye, or you can slick on a sheer nude gloss to mute the color a bit more, too, and pair it with a smoldering eye!

Is this the right pink for you? Would you wear it?

The Summer Season is a series of posts featuring bright, vibrant shades of coral, orange, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for a summer of fun — that runs through July 2010.

This lipstick is soooo pretty! I don’t know why I returned it the first time; and still ended up repurchasing it because it’s so pretty. It looks great on you =)

I’ve been meaning to buy this shade for a while now but every time I go to Mac I get distracted by all the pretty colors I forget about it. I should really start bringing a list when I go.

Christine, can you ask community a question about favorite looks for a specific eye color in combo with a specific skin tone? For example, what are people’s fav eyeshadows for blue, hazel, etc color of eyes in combination with cool, warm complexion.
Sorry for posting it here, I cannot figure out how to submit this idea for “Temptalia Asks You” forum.

i have chatterbox and i just got it out to compare, and maybe it’s my screen but it looks a lot paler and closer to a baby pink in your pictures when in reality it’s a lot more of a richer true pink. Is it my screen or does anyone else think so too?

The pictures look like the way mine does, but our lip colors could differ, so that might be why it looks different on lips?

It is a beautiful lipstick! I have it myself. Sometimes I layer it on top of Revlon’s Peach Petal Superlustrous gloss and I get a very nice soft pink.

I don’t have this one–how does it compare to Viva Glam GAGA? I <3 that one, and to my eye they look similar, especially on the lip.

oh it looks soooo pretty on you!!!!!!
I love pink lipsticks and I love Chatterbox, but I already have Speed Dial and they are pretty similar, in my opinion.

what blush are you wearing your skin looks so fresh and glowy! chatterbox and pink noveau are my all time favorite Barbie like lipsticks

hhhm…doesn’t this looks like guerlain giulette but wthout the gold shimmer???
as you can understand i am trying to find a cheaper version of the guerlain lipstick which is gorgeousssssssssss!!
i would appreciate your answer!:)

do you think chatterbox is great on light-medium warm skin tone?
i love it, but im not sure if it is good for me,
i hAve bpught lovelorn and its awesome, just the perfect pink, not to bright, not to fair(:
chatteerbox looks really good on you! you are so pretty(:
thaks!

This lipstick looks so similare (almost a low-end dupe) to a lipstick I have, Maybelline Sensational in 162 Feel Pink. πŸ˜› I love that color.

http://www.florentziaart.blogspot.com/2011/04/maybelline-color-sensational-lipstick.html <— this lipstick.

:/ Too bad, feel pink is a bit old now so I dont think I can use it (its smell a bit funny compared to another maybelline lipstick I own).

I will start buying MAC lipstick soon and Chatterbox gonna be one of them. πŸ˜€ But since I am not so girly with liptick,so I think I will wait getting the brighter pinks. πŸ˜›

Skintone: If mac had lighter foundations, i would be N10 or something. N15 & N20 are too dark :/
