I have been on the hunt for a lip color that would give my lips the same color they turn in cold weather and this is that product. On me this is a great deep pink that still look fairly natural. I like that it's a color I could wear everyday or dress up if I had somewhere fancy to go.
A MUA @ Mac put this on me today; as well as a creme blush in Tickle Me Pink (i adore this blush. It was an instant buy for me). My first thought was it was kind of a lot but after wearing it for the day (well ok, until i decided to eat) it really grew on me and the combo was super pretty. I think i'm going to go back and pick it up.
For reference I am cool toned and fair skined. They put NC15 on me @ Mac only because the NW20 was too dark on me and she said NC15 is so light you can't even really tell it's warmer and after wearing it i agree.
I love the colour of this lipstick which goes beautifully with my nc37 skin colour. It goes on nicely but it does not have good staying power. It lasts for about 20 minutes then disappears, for this reason I will not repurchase.
I tend to stick with MLBB shades, but I'm trying to branch out. I was searching for something a few shades brighter than my usual choices but not over the top. This shade fits the bill! It's a true pink shade with an ever-so slight purple undertone. It has a sheen but isn't frosty. It's a versatile color, that can be kicked up a notch by using a bright liner or toned down with a neuteral liner. I feel more glamorous when I wear this lipstick. I am a dark eyed brunette with warm, yellow undertones, but I imagine this would be an ideal shade for all the cool-toned blonde as well. The only problem I have is the Cremesheen formula... I have to constantly reapply, because it has zero lasting power for me hence the 4 lippies. I'll buy it again if I can't find a dupe!
If youre fair and cool run to the Mac counter and get Hot Gossip. Its just a perfect shade of a sophisticated pink. It looks amazing with many of Mac's blushes, I especially like this with Mac's new LE blush Bite of an Apple which was released this fall. Hot Gossip is a must for all you blonde ladies out there.
MLBB! in the pics on this review page, the color looks more hot pink on the girl than it does on me. i'm NC 20-25 w/pigmented lips + tend to gravitate towards darker shades, so i was looking for a lippie for more conservative occasions. the SA recommended this, + it's just the right shade to even out my lip tone + look finished: a cool-toned darker pink.
I'm NC40-42 and this is a lovely pink on me - really pretty but not OTT or too bright. Great everyday lipstick which you can dress up by layering a darker gloss over the top. It doesn't dry you lips and lasts quite a few hours - i'm really happy with this :-) Try this if you like pink lipsticks but don't want to go for too strong a pink.
This is how I thought syrup would look like on me. This is a natural plummy pink mauve but not shockinly bright. I can wear this like a sheer lipstick or really put on alot for a bolder look.
Update I have returned this to my swap list
to sparkly & very drying even with prep prime under it
Hot Gossip is a cute pinky-plum shade with a slight shimmer. Its a cremesheen lipstick so it has a very smooth application. It of course comes with the delicious Vanilla smell that Mac lipstick's commonly have. I think the colour is very usable as you can were it on a daily basis but apply more layers for a more striking look. The colour is quite durable and lasts a good few hours. My only complaint would be that it is a bit too sparkly for my preferance. Overall, I am very happy with this product!
MAC's Hot Gossip is a shimmery mid toned plummy pink. Quite similar to MAC's Sweetie. Hot Gossip appears mostly pink in most lighting but its purplish undertones are more obvious in other types of lighting. I like that it's a Cremesheen, hence it has decent moisture also one can apply an additional layer for a more intense plummy pink look.
