My first MAC lipstick!! I would best describe this as a pinky red with major violet undertones. Unfortunately it's too garish for my skin tone. I really love the glossy texture, but it bleeds an hour after wearing it. A clear wax lip liner solves this problem. For an expensive lipstick that's a huge hassle. With a lighter cremesheen lipstick, you probably wouldn't notice, but Lickable is pretty saturated in colour.
This colour is fantastic!
I reckon it would suit any colouring too. It's a beautiful bright pink, the kind Cheryl Cole usually wears out on the town and although it's very colourful, it really does wonders. The formula is cremesheen which means it glides on and stays put without drying up. It leaves a nice light stain on the lips after long wear and fades rather than disappears.
I really think this is fabulous and it's my HG bright pink next to my HG bright reds Ruby Woo and MAC Red.
Can easily be dabbed on with your finger over a little lip balm to add a pop or hint of colour or just whack it on and cover it in gloss to go full on.
The best part of this lipstick is that it makes your teeth look really white, which is always a bonus!
If you're at a MAC counter looking for something with more colour than your usual, try it out, it's definitely an underrated top lippie!
Beautiful color with good staying power. My skin has strong olive undertones, and as long as I keep the rest of my makeup fairly neutral, this works really well. It's a bit drying, though, so be sure to slather on the lipbalm under this!
When I went to America for my last visit, I made a trip to the MAC counter. I wanted to get some lipsticks in colors that are not normally my norm because the price is cheaper than in the country where I live. I decided to get this bright pink color just because it was different, and I thougt that I should start pushing my norms a bit, become a bit more daring. I applied it once I was in the car, and my mother immediately commented on what a beautiful color. When I got out of the elevator, I saw my aunt who commented on how beautiful I looked (the only makeup I had on was powder (nw 20 for refrence), so I know she was talking about this lipstick). When I returned to my country, my SO also commented on how striking this color is. I have worn it for about a month now, not every day, but often enough to do a review. This color seems to almost stain my lips, which means the more I wear it, the less I have to apply. Although I do have to reapply after eating, I feel that the color is strong and that I don't have to make many touch-ups throughout the day. The formula is not drying, nor does it feel heavy on my lips. It is a great color for those who want to try something daring, and for those who love hot pink. I am very happy with my purchace.
I purchased this lipstick because I wanted a glamorous alternative to classic red. I'm in love with the shade, it's very flattering on my fair skin and blue eyes. However, it doesn't have a special staying power, nor any hydrating property, so I have to reapply after one or two hours if I want it to appear flawless. The price (£10 in the UK) was ok.
Beautiful hot pink color. I have to apply it lightly though to achieve the look I want..if i apply straight from the tube it just looks too pink. I like to put on lip balm and then thinly apply one layer from the tube and use a lip brush to even it out. Looks good with funtabulous on top too but i prefer to wear it alone with lip chap for a stain sort of look. This gives a beautiful hot pink color to my lips which was exactly what i was looking for for spring and summer. I like to pair this with just urban decay's sin (or any champagne color) on the lids, black liquid liner on the top winged out a bit, a brighter pink blush (ie dollymix from mac) and mascara. Love this look and I will be wearing this a lot this summer. I can't wait to try other bright pinks and fuschias like show orchid and girl about town. Only took off a lippie because it was more dramatic than i thought applied straight from the tube how I'd normal apply lighter colors.
Love this color! Would have never found myself wearing this color, but it looks great--especially with natural eyes! I also like it with Funtabulous dazzleglass over it! :D
YES! this is the pink/coral shade I always wanted but had to mix to obtain the right color.
it is almost perfect for me no matter what haircolor I have..lol.
Ok, I went to the MAC counter today to purchase another Fix + Spray.
I ended up with that plus 3 lipsticks and a gloss.
And a MSF. :D Omg, I do that all the time lol. :D (gotta stop that haha)
This lipstick was totally not something I would normally go for. The color is totally intimidating haha. Bright bright pink :D I try to stick with chill colors lol. But this color...has changed me. 0.0 haha. LOVE IT. So glad I got over myself and tried something new! The color is amazing. Totally brightens up my whole face :D It is so creamy and smooth! It seems like a lipstain, and can be built up very well. Aww I love it so much, alone or with a nice gloss. I have gotten lots of compliments! So try something new ladies, check it out ;) <3 I got in my car after purchasing it, and walked right back in for a backup haha :D
I absolutely adore this lipstick, because it does happen to be in probably my favorite formulation, cremesheen. This glides on so absolutely creamy, and is so pigmented sometimes a swipe is all you need.
I will admit, it is very very bright, so the rest of your face really does have to quite neutral to pull this off without looking over the top. It is definitely a beautiful bright pink that has a blue base, so it makes one's teeth look quite white.
I am very wary about wearing bright pinks, because my hair is a bright strawberry blonde...so sometimes colors like this make me look sickly. But Lickable is definitely an exception, because it brightens up my whole face, and everyone said that my light blue eyes really were shining bright and I looked awake and fresh no matter how tired I really am.
Now that I have this I definitely could not live with out it, and although its not an every day type look its great for the once in a while occasion where you are feeling like putting something on that is hot and spicy.
