Powder Kiss Details

Matte, totally reinvented. Delivering a romantic blur of soft-focus colour, M·A·C’s weightless moisture-matte Powder Kiss Lipstick was developed to replicate a backstage technique: blending out edges of matte lipstick for a hazy effect. Its groundbreaking formula contains moisture-coated powder pigments that condition and hydrate lips. The result is the zero-shine look of a matte lipstick with the cushiony, lightweight feel of a balm. Fall for this all-new soft-touch, misty matte kiss of colour.

Benefits:

  • Provides immediate and long-term hydration
  • Features a comfortable formula
  • Blurs lines and smoothes lips
  • Lightweight

The lipsticks do have a little bit of shine and slip, with the feel of a silicone primer, so you can’t call them “zero shine”. The pigmentation ranges from semi-opaque to opaque, with the lighter shades not applying evenly and having the tendency to accentuate dry lips. The darker shades from the Powder Kiss range apply better and are less likely to emphasize texture. They have a decent wear time, but do require reapplication. They also apply patchy, which is a tragedy.

 

There’s a slight disagreement over the scent of the lipstick. While some people find the scent quite disturbing, others don’t pick up anything at all. The scent does not linger for long post application, but the sweet taste of the Powder Kiss tends to stay.

 

The Powder Kiss lipsticks retail for INR 1650. Find them in stores and online.
