  • "I am not a big fan of liquid lipsticks as they are very drying, but I felt this to be the opposite. It is very hydrating and long lasting. The colour is extremely vibrant and I can't wait to buy more colours in this. " in 300 reviews

Review for: Burnt Spice, So Me, Recollection more...
I looove the shades - especially for photo- shoots as they are so vibrant on photos and highly pigmented as well as very long lasting. The one con is that bright shades are so long lasting so they don’t come off at all so if You wish to switch from purple to lighter shade, after removing it You would have to do layer of high coverage foundation to mask the bright pink undercoat which is left on Your lips after removing the purple shade. Also it gets very dry on lips, but with all that it is even and vibrant shade of quality lip color!

Review for: Topped With Brandy more...
This review is only for the color Topped with Brandy which is
a gorgeous nude lip for deeper skin tones. I really like the packaging for this. My issue with this lip color is that
is oxidizes several shades darker within a hour. As pretty as this color is
once dried down, I have to bring another lipstick with me to tone down the
color once it oxidizes. I’m not sure if there is oxidation for the other shades, but I would not
purchase any more liquid lipsticks from MAC, but I will continue to buy their
regular tube lipsticks instead.

I have the shades Flesh Stone(gray nude) and Divine-Divine(bubble gum pink). I enjoy Flesh Stone, it’s a unique and interesting shade. Divine is my absolute fave shade of pink. Sadly though, both are drying, streaky, and uncomfortable. Flesh Stone is more forgiving, I can get it to go on fine and look good, for a few minutes. I’ll put it on for certain looks, but can’t leave it on for long. Divine-Divine is worse though, so streaky and cracks like crazy. It does not layer well at all, and sinks into fine lines so badly. I can’t wear that one at all. I just can’t get them to work the way I need them too. I sometimes wear Flesh Stone, but just can’t with Divine. I gave them 3 stars just for the colors. They are such great shades, just terrible as liquid lipsticks. Love MAC though!

The king of liquid lipstick, really long lasting . I wear this lipstick without any problem and any color loosing up to 8 hours , can I drink eat talk even kiss and the color stay up and perfect, depend of the color some person says , so far I tried 4 of them and all have the same results , PERFECT. Good price absolutely worth the product, dry Matte no transfer at all I recommend to wear before an hydrating primer for lip , will be more easy also to remove it in the end of the day !

This is my number one favorite liquid lipstick. It is a creamy formula that DOES NOT MOVE from my lips. I can eat the oiliest foods and my lipstick still looks freshly applied. The longest I have tried it for is 16 hours and no re-application was needed. It is completely transfer proof and does not feel heavy or dry on my lips. I do wish the neutral shades were less gray but otherwise love this! Even got my mom to start using this and she loves it!

Review for: Dance With Me more...

I bought Carnivorous. The color is true and very bold, just a few shades darker than Diva (matte lipstick). It goes on smooth and dries quickly. However, the difficulty of removal combined with the formula's quick drying means you need to apply 100% correctly, and fast. Not a huge deal, just means that when I'm in a rush and have to apply my makeup in the car, this is not what I reach for.
Once dry, the color stays through eating and drinking, although I wouldn't wear it while swimming or working out. Come to think of it, I wouldn't wear any makeup while swimming or working out.
It can be a little drying, and is not very easy to remove, but that kind of comes with the territory. Apart from that, no complaints.

Review for: Dance With Me more...
Mac really does do it best when it comes to liquid lipsticks. When I say this isn’t not drying on the lips at all I mean it. This is truly the beat formula of a liquid lipstick that I’ve ever tried and dance with me is a super flattering red. I normally hate to wear red lipstick and usually think it looks wild on me but I decided to try this and was pleasantly surprised at how pretty the tone was ontop of the comfort yesss

Review for: Feels So Grand more...
Very pigmented and lasts all day on the lips, great coverage and the applicator is nice because it is a doe foot that comes to a narrow point which really helps to get a clean shape. It does feel drying as you wear it through the day which is expected with a matte liquid lip but it's still not the nicest feeling. I actually started using these for coloured eyeliners with a brush and they work amazing in that respect!

Review for: Young Attitude more...
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS COLOR!!!! Very pigmented, barely needed two coats for full coverage. Goes on like a dream, dries down to where you don’t even feel it on your lips. Very long wearing, the smell isn’t overbearing like some liquid lipsticks. One of my favorite liquid lip formulas. Applicator is flat and pointed to you can get in tight spots without needing a lipliner. Definitely going to be buying more!
