Most Helpful Positive Review You will love these!
To say I love these would be The Understatement of the Year. The PKLLs are dense mousse lipsticks that can provide everything from a soft blurred wash of color to a more opaque, stronger effect. You can create a sharp edge with the wand applicator or diffuse with a lip brush, your finger, or just by smushing your lips together. One coat will dry down slightly, preventing excessive transfer. Two or more coats will leave a softer balmy feeling, but with more chances to transfer and pill as the day wears on. These will also smear a bit if you are wearing your mask for an hour+. I have extremely wrinkly lips and these do not settle, crack or crease. However, they also do not leave much of a stain behind. I didn't find the online swatches helpful at all. I bought 3 "blind" (MACSMASH, Devoted to Chili, and A Little Tamed), loved them so much I bought 3 more (Over the Taupe, Make Love to the Camera, and the More the Mehr-ier) and loved all 6 of them SO MUCH I literally just ordered every single other color on the Ulta website because they are just $15 during the Black Friday sale. The photos were all taken in natural light. I have light/medium skin with both yellow and red undertones — for reference I can wear most foundations running NC20 to NW35 (I'm mixed race european and asian). Of course, YMMV and everyone has their own preferences regarding color, texture, scent, longevity, etc. but I really think most people will like these, as they are just the perfect liquid, bullet, powder hybrid. And if you liked but were somewhat underwhelmed by the original bullet Powder Kiss Lipsticks, and enjoyed the Pony Effect Limited edition mousse lipsticks even tho they don't last long, you will LOVE the PKLLs because they blow both the bullets and Pony out of the water in terms of performance, comfort, and color-saturation.
Most Helpful Critical Review I am SO bummed
I had SUCH high hopes for this when I initially tried it on! I purchased Date-Maker (because you can't try on in stores currently) and instantly fell in love when I tried it on in my car. It has an extremely light and soft weight. The color is BEAUTIFUL... a perfect warm nude that I have been searching for forever... (I typically wear Hitch Hiker or Uptight in the Urban Decay comfort mattes, but I've been on the hunt for a liquid lipstick that could survive wearing masks). However, by the time I got home from my 20 minute drive... the color disappeared! I thought maybe I didn't apply enough. The next day, I did full makeup and applied this... only to find it disappeared an hour later! So. I want to love it. I DID love it... but it frankly doesn't last longer than an average chapstick. If there is a trick to get this to last... lipliner or lipgloss or anything... I would try to purchase again. As of now, I returned it. If there is a long lasting lipstick in this same color, I would love to purchase it!!!

Not sure what was used to prep model's lips in advertisement but it was not the same on me. I will be returning this weekend.
I might buy this again in another color

The color displayed is not what the Over The Taupe shade is in person. It's a lot muddier and more of an orange brown. Texture is good.
Mandy from Jacksonville NC
Comes off easy and feels very thick.
Not what I was told
Alissa from Washington
I asked the personal working for an all-day-wear lip stain. He said this product was the best, I could wear it under a mask, even kiss my children, and it wouldn't move. NOT TRUE. I let it sit for 45 mins before I touched anything to my lips. The first sip of water, it was all over the glass.
Not a lip stain.
10 Minutes NOT 10 Hours of wear
10 Minutes of wear from San Francisco
I needed a long wear lipstick and was told this really stays on. Unfortunately it did not come close to the promised 10 Hours, but more like 10 Minutes after drinking coffee. I returned it the next day.
Just not what was advertised. Lately I have been quite disappointed with MAC products and I am trying other brands.
Smichelle from New York
This product is amazing. It leaves your feeling very moisturized. A little goes a long way. I highly recommend this product. I'll purchase in another color. Nice job MAC!!
Color selection is out of this world
Fifi from NYC
I love these bright, clear colors. The way the formula is made, there doesn't seem to be that white base that regular lipsticks can have which can look sort of "undead" on darker skintones. I'm light-medium (about NC25-30) and I've got several shades of these and each one is perfect. I'm getting older and regular waxy matte lipstick formulas don't look good on me anymore. This mousse texture stays hydrated and miraculously DOES NOT FEATHER across the edges of my mouth. No weird numbing or stinging sensation either. A little bit dabbed on the center of the lips and then smudged out is all you need. Less is more with this product.
Defective bottle from Queens New York
I brought for the first time couple days later I found the bottle in bag open the silver ring on top of the bottle came off I can't put it back together. now the it is drying out
These textures are heavenly
LipstickFearer from California
Never never never discontinue this formula, MAC! I will never buy another lipstick.
I have full, dry lips and the Powder Kiss formulation pigments amazingly, looks natural, stays on, and leaves my lips soft and comfortable.
Darker shade from Dallas
It didn't last as long as the others that I've purchased in the past and the shade was really darker than the pictures on here. Also i bought it and didn't get an offer for a free about samples 😔
FAVORITE LIPSTICK EVER!!!
Ryan from Detroit
I love this lipstick so much it's the best one I have. It smells like chocolate and it's a whipped consistency and so it's not going to be hard to work with come application. It's so comfortable on the lip and is very light weight. The smell isn't overpowering either and once you give it some time to dry down it stays on for a while even through greasy foods and mask wearing! I don't like the price point though but then again you will be paying a pretty penny for a high quality product so it adds up. 100% will be getting more and the color Mull It Over is so flattering!

Lipstick feel and looks great on
I would purchase again
Vanleigh79 from Virginia
Loved model off duty color. Creamy formula which was non drying on. But didn't last, the color faded and wore off almost immediately— such a same cause it was seeming amazing for less than an hour.
Abi from Guyana
It's a great lipcolor
Meh. Not my favorite lipstick.
Janessa from GA
This lipstick is ok but I expected more from MAC. The applicator is weird. The finish is nice, but the color was more pink than I expected. Also the color transfers easier than I expected. If your looking for a great feeling Matte lipstick this is a great product but be prepared to reapply throughout the day.
I thought YSL had great liquid lip
Nurzeprn from Nashvegas
Well now, back to MAC I go! This is my all time fave of liquid lip! It's takes a bit to finesse your skills to put on, add a LOL pencil and Vella
Looks like already opened
Tee D from GA
The lipstick arrived with no secure tape and the container has a flat top with a fingernail print on top. Lipstick is quite dry for a liquid type. Wonder if it was already opened before being shipped.
gorgeous color but awful staying power

Super comfortable but not long lasting
K from Washington, D.C.
I don't mind that this isn't a long-lasting formula, but go in knowing it will fade quickly compared to a traditional liquid lip. The lippie itself is very comfortable to wear though and definitely gives that soft blurred effect that's popular in K-beauty right now. The texture is light and mousse-y and the scent/flavor (vanilla?) is barely noticable. I really enjoy it, but it can sometimes look a bit patchy if I don't prep my lips right. The applicator is also not my favorite (I wish they would have just gone with a normal doe-foot). Mull it Over is a nice nude, almost peachy color on me (fair, pink undertone).
