MAC’s new powder lipsticks are set to make wearing a matte lip a whole lot easier

Pulling off a matte lip isn’t easy. No matter how much you line and blot, as soon as you apply many matte lipsticks, they can either end up dry and thick, or smudging off altogether as soon as you eat or talk.

MAC’s lipsticks are often the exception to these rules, but if you don’t get on with its current formulations, you might be pleased to hear about a very exciting new launch that the iconic brand has on the way. Meet MAC Powder Kiss lipsticks, a revolutionary offering that’s said to give the bold finish of a matte lipstick with a comfortable, moisturised feel.

The product has been ‘backstage tested’ at both New York and London’s fashion weeks, with MAC giving its fans a sneak preview on their Instagram account.

‘Oh yesss! MAC is my favorite line and these colors are EVERYTHING! ❤️’ one excited make-up lover wrote, while another posted: ‘LOOK AT THE TEXTURE! Wow’.

‘Marvelously wonderful @maccosmetics!!’ a third commented. ‘They look so velvety, I can’t wait to try them out😍’

Describing the lipsticks as feeling like ‘a lightweight balm on the lips!’, in the comments section MAC says that there are ‘no shade details or date to share just yet’, but from the picture we can see a range of brights including a coral-orange red, a fuschia pink and a softer, rosy tone.

They add that ‘We’re excited to share that #MACPowderKiss Lipsticks are permanent!’, so if there’s a tone that you particularly love, it looks like it’ll be part of the main collection going forward.

MAC Powder Kiss lipsticks arrive in North America in October, with release dates for other territories yet to be confirmed. Either way, we predict a riot amongst lipstick lovers when they eventually land!
