MAC Huggable Lipstick- Swatched

The New Year brings a new lipstick formula from MAC- Huggable.

Huggable comes in a tube similar to Sheen Supreme but it's steel grey instead of black.

Huggable Lipstick is gel base with really good pigment and light moisture. One swipe will give you full color and  shine.  It's not quite a lip butter but a distant relation. What's odd is that being moisturizing , it's not super creamy on lips. There is some drag and pull when applying. But once on, it feels good on lips and they stay hydrated .

MAC says these are meant to be long wear , up to six hours. On me like most lippies I got average wear. Lipsticks on me seem to fade faster lately  so I got about one hour with little wear, and a second hour left a stain behind. Huggable lasted longer than a straight lipstick. My buddy The Muse got four hours wear , so it's really going to vary person to person I think.

The high point of these new lipsticks is the mix of pigment and  moisture. There are twelve shades and they will be on counter Jan. 2 for $20.

These look lovely! I'm especially drawn to Fresh & Frisky. Some of the Revlon lip butters are not the most hydrating on me. Would you say that these MAC lippies are more hydrating?

Hi Grinxdor,

I don't think these are more hydrating than the Lip Butters, which I find pretty good. But.. if you didn't find them as hydrating then the Huggable ones might seem better to you. Give them a test and see what you think.
