MAC Good Kisser, Lingering Kiss

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.

MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick, Moody Bloom

Press Sample, Affiliate LinksSheen Supreme Lipstick is one of my favorite MAC Lipstick formulas. Sheen Supreme feels positively emollient on the lips, more like a lip treatment than a 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.
