MAC Huggable Lipcolour (2015): Part II

on
Friday, May 15, 2015

Yesterday, MAC released a collection called Huggable Lipcolour, which features the comeback of the limited edition lip formula of the same name that was originally launched last January. It is described as a "comforting, creamy formula" that "remains luminous for up to six hours. This lasting lipstick with juicy, bouncy shine also boosts collagen, leaving lips looking smooth, supple, and sculpted. The unique gel base melts into lips upon contact, allowing each shade to glide on effortlessly with a feather-light moisturizing finish." The entire collection features a total of ten shades of Huggable Lipcolour (two of which will not be reviewed here), nine of which are new and limited edition, and one of which is a re-promote. Each Huggable Lipcolour comes in gunmetal cylindrical tubes, contains 3.2 grams of product, and retails for $24. These are not applicable for the Back to MAC recycling program.

For those who missed out on Huggable Lipcolour last year, here's your chance to check them out now. Huggable was a total sleeper hit when it first came out because it's one of those formulas that you have to actually try on and see what it feels and looks like before becoming converted. (And you will be converted. That's why MAC brought these back to begin with. People went nuts for them after they figured out what they do for your lips.) The Huggable Lipcolours have a kind of strange consistency, where they tug a little bit at first because there's very little slip; it really feels like they are clinging on the lips (not in an uncomfortable way), which I found actually helps these colours from bleeding. I didn't really get what MAC meant by "lip-sculpting collagen" until I saw what these looked like on my lips about five minutes after applying them (once my lips warmed up the lip colour). Aside from making lips look juicier and more plump overall (they have a more gel-like look than creamy), I found that these have an almost "blurring" effect, smoothing out the texture of my lips completely so they look... perfect. These aren't immediately hydrating like the Sheen Supreme Lipsticks or Mineralize Rich Lipsticks, but I did find that they were hydrating over time. There's ten shades to check out this time around; something for everyone, and all totally appropriate for the Spring and Summer seasons. Also, they're limited edition (again), so check them out fast.
