MAC Is Launching a Brand-New Powder Lipstick

There's something so great about MAC lipsticks. For starters, there are so many shades to choose from that you're guaranteed to find at least one that you're head over heels for. My personal MAC loves include Lady Danger (a vivid orange-red that makes me look tanned) and Whirl (a dirty rose). The textures are comfortable and long-lasting, and the matte textures have staying power. The pigments are also a thing of wonder—rich and opulent yet still flattering. Simply put, MAC lipsticks are brilliant.

But, as much as we love MAC lipsticks, there's a brand new line about to launch- and spoiler alert: it could be the best one yet. 

Seen backstage at fashion week, the MAC Powder Kiss Lipsticks give lips a softly-diffused kiss of colour, without feeling dry or at all powdery on the lips. 

Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, we tried out the lipsticks backstage at Roland Mouret S/S '19 and can confirm that the formula is more of a weightless lip balm than a dry, matte powder.

There's going to be 16 shades in the line (the dreamy one above is called 'Lasting Passion') but you'll have to wait until October to get your hands on them.

Still, since we're impatient, I've put together an edit of some of the cult shades that make for a good starting point. Keep scrolling to see the 15 MAC lipstick shades worth puckering up for.
