This is an underrated lipstick! I just love it. Its a medium pink with gold shimmer and its perfect for spring and summer. I got this as my free lipstick when I returned empties and I'm sooo glad I got it. I haven't stopped wearing it!

Bombshell is a pink/coral/gold shimmer frost. Such a pretty color, tempted to buy it after seeing photos of various women wearing it. It's a basically a calm, no frills color w/a hint of frosty shimmer. The frost can be a bit drying at time & MAC lippies tend to stay put for a long time, until you eat. Its a matter of finding a lipliner or lipglass to make this color pop, though.

Its a beautiful soft pink with a touch of gold coral but its such a shame that its so drying it makes me lips crack and bleed. Even used with a lip balm it still cause some major drying. It looks so beautiful but I will not be re-purchasing this.

MAC Bombshell Lipstick is a soft rosy pink with pink and golden shimmer. It's a frost formula lipstick, so if you don't like frost, this might not be a lipstick for you - but for reference, I can tolerate many of MAC's Frost Lipsticks as the actual formula is nice and they don't tend to be overly frosty.
The lipstick is smooth (non-gritty and dry like many frost lipsticks) and applies just as silky as any of their other formulas. It has a satin finish, but if it was a bit more glossy I'd love this lipstick so much more. I think it has a tendency to sometimes looks a little dull on my lips, but it's nothing a little gloss doesn't fix. I've read that it looks great when layered with MAC Nymphette Lipglass, although I just grab any similar pink gloss and it always looks nice.
I notice that when I'm tanner (NC35), it looks more cool toned on my lips, and when I'm lighter (NC25), it looks a bit more rosy. I think Pink Icing would've been an appropriate name, because that's almost what it looks like on my lips.
It's a fabulous shade for every-day, and if you're in the market for a frosty pink that doesn't make you look like a porn-star, check out MAC Bombshell.

I really like this lipstick, maybe because this was my first MAC lipstick ever. I bought it without swatching it because i was just looking for a sheer, pink lipstick that is easy for on the go. This wasn't what i was looking for but i still liked it. Except for the fact that it has some shimmer in it that makes it looks TOO frosty on my lips. If it wasn't for the frostiness, it would get 5 lippies from me.

Great with a tan, nuf said! Perfection pink with a bit of gold....don't know that the heck those photos are up there of, my Bombshell does not look like that at all.

Very pretty shade of brightish pink w/a slight gold sheen. Looks nice w/my NC25 (w/yellower undertones) skin.

I wanted to love this lipstick, but it did nothing for me. I am not fond of frost finishes and this is no exception. Bombshell is a beautiful cool pink with touches of gold shimmer. One swipe of this shade didn't really show up, but upon building up the formula, it looked chalky and flat on my pigmented lips. I'm NC40ish so when I wear pinks, they have to pack a lot of pigment on their own. I wonder if I have a dud because I've seen WOC rock this lippie beautifully. *shrug* This is definitely a pretty color, just not on me.

This is a really pretty pink lipstick with a hint of coral and a gold sheen to it. It really warms up my nw25 complexion I love to pair this with coralista blush for a heathy warm glow. This also go lovely with mac dainty, and nars deep throat. I love mac and love the variety of colours they have in their collections my only problem with some of the lipsticks is their textures as some of them can be quite drying, so I usually put a dab of vasaline lip balm on first and that solves the problem. I recieved this in a swap but would almost definitley purchase.

This lipstick looks nothing like the pics on here on me. It looks like gramma-barbie frosty pink. I think the color is pretty if it wasn't so darn frosty, but it is a frost and therefore a fail. I give it 3 lippies because it's MAC - great brand!

LOVE this color! I bought this color without actually seeing it in person, I checked this review and some other blogs and I thought it'd look good on my NW15 skin. And I wasn't wrong!
To me, Bombshell is like the older sister of Rimmel Airy Fairy (which is my go-to nude lipstick). While Airy Fairy is more pinkish nude, Bomshell is pink but has the same golden shimmer that brings warmth to my skin. It immediately brightens up my face whenever I put it on.
I was a little bit afraid the Frost finish would feel drying on my lips, but I find it very moisturizing. It has a great payoff on my pigmented lips, kind of MLBB because of that subtle golden shimmer. It's my pink go-to lipstick!

I used to use Bombshell years ago but found it drying. After several years of looking for a nice pink and not finding it, I repurchased Bombshell. As long as I wear balm underneath it, it is not drying. It is just enough pink to go with warm or cool skin tones and not too pink fake looking, not bubblegum pink, not blue or red, just enough pink. If you want a little pink that isn't over the top, try Bombshell at any age. I think an 80 year old can look nice in this color too.

This is one lipstick I have swapped again and repurchased over the past 10 years as I have changed my hair color and color preferences. But, this is a classic shade of pink that I have not been able to find anywhere else that I can pull off with my tanned skin tone. I like the sheerness and the light shimmer that this has. It is not TOO pink and goes well with warm/cool skin tones.

I LOVE this lipstick! Probably my favourite pink. It's a frost so has good coverage and colour payoff. I even prefer it to Chatterbox which I find is slightly drying (though I still love!). I'm an NC20 and it doesn't look too bold me and totally suits my skin. It's got a redish tint to it so it's not so pink, but I still adore the colour and I really recommend it. :-)

Love this lipstick! I line my lips and fill them in with No. 7 lip liner in 20 nude and put Bombshell over the top. It's my "my lips but better" color.

When I walked up to the MAC counter and asked the sales person for some help in "matching a colour" I think she was in shock when we matched Bombshell. I had this colour of lipstick that I had received in a kit when I took a makeup course and I loved it but didn't know even what brand it was. We matched it to Bombshell and it's a dead ringer. It's is an extremely flattering soft coral pink with a slight gold shimmer. It's really pretty. I'm always trying out new makeup colours and testing the limits of what I can wear and how I can wear it. I hate routine and the same thing over and over. I added this baby to my lipstick lottery (reach into makeup bag and whatever colour you pick is the colour for the day!!!!). I'm glad I bought it and I also love the scent of MAC lipsticks - they just smell delicious!

A pink lipstick with some gold shimmer (not chunky at all! it is literally just combined as the colour) with a slight purple hue - but it does not appear purple. The frost finish seems fine and the colour pigmentation is very good! You can build up the colour easily and the lipstick is quite creamy. Great in the summer and with a tan! It is very flattering and is suitable for day wear and night wear! Definitely check it out.
