MAC Taste Temptation Mattene Lipstick Reviews, Swatches and Photos

Besides the Making Pretty Face & Eye Brush Set, I also brought home the new, limited-edition MAC Taste Temptations Mattene Lipsticks.

MAC Nocturnal Instincts, Night Blooming and Seductive Intent Mattene Lipsticks

Nocturnal Instincts is “a mid-tone greyed lavender” with tiny red sparkles. It showed up a muted nude pink on my lips.

Night Blooming is a bright “mid-toned blue pink” and a tinge darker than Outrageously Fun from MAC’s Glamour Daze Collection.

Seductive Intent is a “vivid purple” that is similar to MAC Violetta from the permanent line. It is just a bit darker and more purple than Night Blooming.

As expected of the Mattene formula, these applied opaque and very creamy, despite the semi-matte finish. They are also vanilla scented and the slimline design makes it so easy to apply. I normally get a good 5-6 hours of wear with Mattene lipsticks and these were no different.

    • I would try your local MAC store/counters… Night Blooming has been sold out on and everywhere else online.
