Review | NEW MAC Huggable Lipcolour
On the MAC website it says that this is a gel-like lipstick with rich, glossy shine and a feather-light finish that lasts up to six hours.
A comforting, creamy formula in shades that stay luminous for up to six hours. This lasting lipstick with rich, glossy shine boosts collagen, leaving lips looking smooth, supple, sculpted. The unique gel base melts upon contact, allowing each shade to glide on effortlessly with a feather-light moisturizing finish. It also says that this is dermatologist tested.

So, I’m not quite sure what to think about these lipsticks, and I guess I expected them to be better than they are.
Now, I do like the fact that they are very comfortable to wear, and they’re both easy to apply and easy to layer so you can get them to the color they have in the tube (at least the lighter shades), but this is a very sheer formula, and the dark shade is nothing like it looks like in the tube, so that’s something to keep in mind if you’re interested in these.
However, even though these are very balmy and creamy, they really emphasize the dryness on my lips, they settle in my liplines and the light shades don’t last for more than an hour.
The dark shade on the other hand stays on longer, and it leaves kind of a stain, but it does bleed a little.
I do also recommend that you use a lipliner to fill in your entire lip before applying these if you want them to look better for a longer time.
With this said, I think that these would be better if you’re more into lipgloss, and are just starting to play with lipsticks, because these do really feel like a lipgloss in a lipstick form.
Or you could use them as a lipstick topper, but if you’re looking for a shiny/creamy lipstick that will last for more than 1-2 hours, I’d skip these.
I got mine from Kicks for 195nok (a piece).
