MAC Good Kisser, Lingering Kiss

x

Good Kisser and Lingering Kiss

Press Sample, Affiliate LinksThese lipsticks from the MAC A Novel Romance collection have sold out online, but they’re worth hunting for at your local department store, so don’t hesitate!

Generally pink isn’t thought of as a Fall color, but Good Kisser has an intensity and warmth that makes it work for fall.  Lingering Kiss is described as a deep plum red by MAC.  It was a hard color for me to describe.  Part burgundy, part wine, part brown… but one thing is for certain, it is quintessential Fall, and such a statement color!

Both shades are matte, but proof that matte needn’t be flat!  Keep scrolling for more photos of these beautiful lipsticks!

Retail price is $16 per lipstick.

It delivers semi-glossy color that looks playful, not too heavy.  Moody Bloom is a great color choice for this time of year.  It works equally well with shorts and a t-shirt as it does with professional attire.
