MAC Huggable Lipcolour - Soft Talkin', Love Feeling, I'm Game - photos, swatches, review

Forget having an affair with New York like my makeup bag from Pamela Barsky says, I'm having an affair with MAC's Huggable Lipcolours!  This limited edition collection of ten glossy lippies have returned and I wish I'd picked some up when they were first launched.  If I was to be a lip product, and let's be honest, who doesn't think of these things, I would be a Huggable lip colour.

First of all, the packing is super sleek, like myself.  (In my dreams).  I like the flat topped bullet with the slight slant to make application easy peasy.  (I am not easy peasy).  But most of all, I love the formula.  I love a glossy finish and as someone with thin lips, I always feel that a glossy sheen helps them look a bit bigger.  In the summer, I like having shiny lips.  It's just my thing when the weather gets warmer.  Yes, it means that my hair sticks to my face which isn't very attractive, but it's worth it with lippies like these.

The MAC Huggables are decidedly moisturising on the lips and while a lot of sheer glossy lipsticks have a lot of slip in them, this has slight tackiness, but not stickiness, that helps them last longer.  I find that they look and feel better on the lips after a minute or so as they melt slightly and become one with you.  That sounds weird but when you try them out, you'll see what I mean.

I was given three to play with and play with them I have.  Ok, they've made me start talking like Yoda now.  On to the swatches.

MAC Huggable LipColour - Soft Talkin' 

Soft Talkin' was made for nude lip lovers like me.  It featured in my June favourites video because this was love at first application and I feel bad for the other two shades which don't get much of a look in on a day to day basis to be honest.  This is a warm, caramel, peachy nude that's perfect when you want something understated and easy to wear.  It's also one that can be applied without a mirror, making it my go to desk lip product.  I think I'll have to buy a back up of this before it disappears out of my life forever.

MAC Huggable LipColour - Love Feeling

Ooh I do love an orange lip in the summer and Love Feeling is a beaut!  It's nice and opaque and while it was a bit messier to apply compared to Soft Talkin', it's a gorgeous bright shade for those who love something vibrant and glossy.

MAC Huggable LipColour - I'm Game

Now, we know that I don't wear a lot of pink on my lips, but I'm Game has made me re-evaluate things because look at it!  It's a cool toned pink, is nice and opaque with a couple of swipes and again, the formula and shine just makes it easier to wear for me.  Especially with a pink as bright as this!

Ok, so these are €23 and are available on the Brown Thomas website now, in stores and on the MAC website.   And can I just say that I want Fashion Force because it's coral and the end.  It's coral.  So please MAC, let this limited edition collection stay until payday, ok thanks very much.

Will you be checking the Huggables out?

    I can't remember 100% but I think it's the Hourglass blush in Dim Infusion and the Hourglass bronzer? Or the recent MAC bronzer from the Wash & Dry collection? I took so many photos that day and I can't remember for sure!

    I was a bit messy using Love Feeling because I lost the run of myself with excitement, scarlet for me!
