Most Helpful Positive Review Can I give this more than 5 stars?
I honestly had no idea how much I needed this finish option. I went in looking for a long wear, transfer free lip, which I purchased, but I fell for powder kiss while I was at it. Lasts fairly well for non-liquid, non drying lip. I wouldn't say that it wears as long as the traditional mac lip, but i can get a solid 4 hours even through my morning water and coffee.
This finish is...interesting. Hands down the lightest weight out of the matte or satin lipsticks I've ever tried. I love that it manages to be moisturizing and matte at the same time. I feel like the finish appears best over a bare lip - maybe a set/dried primer at most - so that you get the full effect of the powdery edges. I tend to have dry lips, but i don't feel like i need to supplement this with balm. The blurred finish is very edgy and high fashion, but still everyday wearable.
I've seen comments about maintenance (I.e.) reapplication, but this one def. pays off. It is the perfect liner free, blot free, lip balm free look. My new go to for a night out since I only have to fit one tube in my purse or pocket. NO LINER TOUCH UPS, LADIES! Bought 3 shades, will be buying more.
Most Helpful Critical Review Lasting Passion isn't passionate enough for pigmented lips
Was really excited about the Powder Kiss lipsticks from the pictures and the based on the concept, and went for a shade that seemed to be a safe bet. I know the whole point of this lipstick is to start of light and cheer, and be more so like a lip balm that transforms into lipstick if you keep layering, but this shade does not layer too well on even the lightest of pigmented lips, so this shade is better for people who have a very equal distribution of lip pigmentation, prep their lips with concealer or foundation, or prefer to mix shades a lot. You will not end up with the lips you've seen on the model pictures without layering a lot. I'm disappointed by the fact that I've gotten a better and more equal distribution of colour on my lips using the MAC Lustre Lipstick in See Sheer than Powder Kiss Lasting Passion.
Other than that, I guess the fact that lipstick has a sweet taste is nice? Didn't see that coming, but overall I'm willing to get another Powder Kiss lipstick, either in their deepest brown choice, purple or pink, which was works better on lighter pigmented lips, but unsure of how it'll build-up since this one wasn't really good.

Love the consistency

I always have problems with my dry lips peeling when I wear lipstick. I found that using a lip balm first and then layering this powder lipstick on top really works well. I got the shade "My Tweedy" and it looks very nice and natural.
Feels great, doesn't look the way I wanted
Flowergirl from New York
This lipstick feels great but didn't really look the way I expected it to. I feel like it emphasized any dryness I had on my lips and lines as well. I don't feel that way about the other formulas.its also extremely sheer. It does feel velvety smooth though. Just didn't work for my lips though ☹️

Where do I even start with this? Let me begin by saying I used to work for a makeup company and have tried my fair share of lip products - this is by far my favorite. I have extremely cool tones to my skin, so this strangely looks very natural on me (even more so than most nudes do) while still being unique. As far as matte products go, this isn't drying at all and sits very naturally on my lips. The blur effect was the huge selling point for me, as it is more forgiving. It has now become my go-to regardless of wether it's lounging around the house or dressing up for a special occasion. I pray they never discontinue it!

Can't go by the color they show online- not even close.
Great color, unique texture
drjudy from San Francisco
I got it in Devoted to Chili and it's the perfect spiced red for fall. The texture is very matte but comfortable to wear. Only nit is that it is not as long lasting as other matte lipsticks but still long lasting compared to non-mattes.
Smells like metallic fish
hautehacker from Tampa
I had bought the liquid powder kiss formula and wasn't a fan so customer service suggested I try the lipstick instead. As soon as I touched it to my lips I smelled what I could only explain as an "old can of tuna" smell. I had my mom smell it as well to see if it was just me. She smelled the same. It's unfortunate since it looks like the color would be very soft, pretty and diffused, which is what I'm looking for. I'm going to contact customer service and see if this is just an issue with this color or batch. I had a similar problem with a lip glass smelling like rancid oil and the next purchase of it did not. I would love for this to work but I can't deal with the smell. Hopefully a new one will not have the same problem.

Its looks so beautiful on the lips. Will definitely be buying 20 more lol
I would buy this product again

Great color. Powder kiss type lipstick not for me. Doesn't stay on very long regardless of how many layers. When came off it looked like my lips had lip liner on them. Not attractive. Returning
Love this matte!
Dee from Vermont
It's not drying. It applied well and left my lips feeling velvety soft. It was more pigmented than I expected and is a beautiful color for fall.
Very nice lipstick

I really like this lipstick from Mac. I recommend it.
Talie from VA
I just grabbed this lipstick without looking at the type of finish because I was in a rush and liked the color and oh my gosh am I glad I did. I love how it feels on my lips an the color really stays on for a long time. I am fair skinned and got the sultry move shade and it looks amazing. I think I found my new favorite lipstick.
Layerable, Great Wear, Smells Amazing!
TB from Baltimore, MD
I purchased the Stay Curious color after seeing Elanna Pecherle's "Must Have Bright & Bold Lipsticks" review on youtube. I am fair skinned with cool undertones, blue eyes and dark hair. I love the versatility of this lipstick. You can layer it on for a color-intense look, or blot it on with your fingers for a more subtle, just-drank-fruit-punch stained look. I don't like lipsticks that are heavy or high maintenance and I was surprised at how easy-to-wear this one is. It doesn't feel like you have anything on your lips, and the slight vanilla smell is amazing! Smells like frosting. I will definitely be trying more Powder Kiss lipsticks in the future!
I would not buy this product again it is not long wearing di

Did not like product.
momos from San Antonio Tx
I don't like using lipstick I have small lips. I was in the mood to try one because my lips need hydration and why not if I'm wearing a mask 😷 lol so I decided on this online purchase during quarantine I tried on virtual. Received today and I am happy to say I like it. Color is not too dramatic not too bright but just right. Ruby woo is pretty but not on me. This pink red is perfect for me. And now I will wear it. Always.
OMGGGG. I'll never buy another lippie.
LexusVuitton from Tampa, FL
Y'all. TRY IT. This lipstick is literally everything.ull it over is the perfect color for me (I'm olive skinned Venezuelan/Italian) everything about it is amazing. Consistency- the way it glides on, the taste. I'm obsessed. It's such a natural look that you don't even need lipliner, it doesn't bleed.

Never would have glanced it twice but saw it on a pintrest post, HAD to have it, Very flattering, neutral enough for daily use, mac tenacity - stays on, even after lunch. Great shade to play up eyes with.
If you love Amplified...
jcasmcdrn from Baton Rouge, LA
If you love Amplified lipstick in "Up the Amp", you are perfect for "P For Potent" Powder Kiss lipstick. It is a hint more plum than pink and one level more matte, but no caking or dryness. Lasts all day and is super sultry sexy!

This lipstick goes on very smooth and soft, love the color, perfect for my fair warm complexion. Staying power is great. Definitely recommend!
New favorite lipstick!
Bella from Washington
This is like a new & improved version of the Albeit lipstick they used to sell at Anthropology, which was my previous fav. I was immediately impressed with how smooth it goes on - this lipstick does everything it says it will and more. Mandarin O makes my lips looks pinker and brighter without any visible trace of product, and I'm obsessed with the effect. It even doubles as a good blush. I keep putting it on to just sit around the house! Highly recommended :)

Luv this type of lipstick but what happened to the shade Best of me & Influentially it. I'm heartbroken. My all time faves & can't find it anywhere anymore. So sad
ftgillini from chicago, il
I received a mini lipstick as a gift with my recent purchase. This is my first time trying a powder kiss lipstick and I love it! It goes on soft and stays soft, and my lips never felt dry. This color makes my lips look like they have more of a natural pink tint, which I love and have been looking for. For reference I am Indian and wear NC44 foundation and median dark powder.

The color is not what I expected at all.
