I’ve been wanting to try the new Powder Kiss formula for a while now and finally picked one up a few weeks ago.
I really like the look of matte lipsticks but it can be difficult to wear when you have dry lips. Matte formulas tend to stick to and emphasize dry patches, really dehydrate your lips after an hour or two of wear however, this formula does neither! It feels surprisingly moisturizing and the formula is a bit hard to describe if you haven’t swatched or applied it. It feels like a moisturizing powder that is extremely lightweight and glides on seamlessly.
You can apply a bit and blend it out for a subtle look or build it up to full coverage on the lips. There is a slight drawback; the formula is not as long wearing as Mac’s usual matte formulas. It does wear away after a while and especially if you eat. The formula is so forgiving on dry lips that I can easily reapply after eating and not worry about using a lip balm first.
I also wish that they would come out with more shades because I want a nice nude shade but haven’t liked any that they have; it’s either too white-based nude or too cool toned. I would definitely purchase more when/if they do come out with more shades. For now, I really like this warm rose color that I currently own.
