MAC Peacocky Collection Kissable Lipcolour Reviews and Swatches

The latest Kissable Lipcolours ($18) from MAC’s Peacocky collection combine the “smooth glide of a lipgloss with the creamy pigment-rich look of a lipstick”.

The new lip product comes in a slim tube with a doe-foot applicator just like the Dare To Wear Lipglass.

There is a nice selection of colors to choose from, ranging from wearable pinks, reds, browns and plums to a bright, look-at-me blue. I ended up with So Vain, a “muted dirty coral” that shows up exactly like the description.

The Kissable Lipcolour goes on very opaque and true to color. Its texture is creamy, non-drying and feels really lightweight. Unlike the Lipglass and Cremesheen Glass, the finish looks just like a cream with a tad of shine and zero glossiness. It also manages to stay on after a few drinks but I do have to reapply after a meal.
