|Top to bottom: MAC Kissable Lipcolours in Scandelicious & Flaunting It|
MAC's Kissable Lipcolours are limited edition and part of the Peacocky Collection. For me, this has been the MAC collection I have most looked forward to as having read American beauty blogs, both the lipcolours and Mega Metal Eyeshadows were said to be great quality (I'll post on the eyeshadows separately).
There is quite a wide colour range available int he Kissable formula but I was immediately drawn to Flaunting It, a mauve, and Scandelicious, a Fuchsia. They are designed to be a hybrid of lipstick and gloss and this is an accurate description. They have a doe foot applicator and a slightly artificial scent of vanilla, but nothing too offensive to the nose! I got excellent wear from both colours, having drank a bottle of water and noticing zero transference, and it feels like you aren't really wearing anything. They remind me a lot of the Chanel Rouge Allure Laque, but although cheaper, from what I can work out you get twice as much product in the Chanel.

Although I love both shades, I am thrilled with Flaunting It. Some of you may remember that I was hugely disappointed with the Chanel Rouge Allure Laque in Stunt, a limited edition shade I had to get from America that claimed to be mauve. In reality it was more brown, mud brown, something I have an intense hatred of on my lips. I was concerned the same would be true of Flaunting It, but to my pleasant surprise, MAC are not colourblind and know what mauve is. Bravo for that.
