Mac Maleficent - True Loves Kiss Lipstick

This is the latest offering in Mac's Limited Edition collections. I was eagerly awaiting this collection but unfortunately wasn't completely blown away with the shades on offer. So I only got myself the Lipstick called True Loves Kiss as I can never resist a new red lipstick.


Mac appeared to have managed to capture the essence of sexy evil with this lipstick! Its a bold but seductive Classic Red. Described as clean bright red with an amplified finish. It has a neutral undertone bordering on the warmer side with a slight metallic ruby shimmer throughout.



Like a lot of beauty lovers I'm slightly disappointed with the packaging they could have really gone all out with packaging rather than just adding the maleficent logo.


It feels really smooth and creamy on the lips and I love the almost wet look finish. Its intensely pigmented and a true classic red. It is not fully opaque in one swipe but you can achieve a fully opaque finish with an extra layer. I think the finish really brings an extra dimension the shade.

The formula applies like a dream without any tugging or pulling at the lips. I was really impressed with the lasting power, it lasted for a good 4 hours and considering the glossiness of the formula I thought it would disappear much quicker. The formula is not as moisturising as it looks but I didn't find it drying either.  I think if it were more moisturising it would have the tendency to slip and not be as long wearing.


Overall the shade itself is gorgeous but its the finish that makes the lipstick for me. The finish adds that extra captivating devilish flare that Angelina Jolie's Maleficent without a doubt possesses.

  4. Great colour! I saw Maleficent this week and it was terrific, much better than I was expecting. I think you should wear this lipstick, some scary cheekbones and a big pair of horns to go and see it.
