MAC Huggable Lip Colour: Touché, Fresh & Frisky, Out for Passion and Rich Marrón


MAC Huggable Lip Colours ($20 each for 3.2g/0.11 oz, limited-edition) are a new lipstick formula that were released several weeks ago. I would have missed out had it not been for Café Makeup who pointed them out to me and recommended I check them out. As she noted, the colors have been selling out quickly. I had to visit two different stores to track down shades. After surveying the swatches on Café Makeup, Temptalia and Weekend Ramblings, I picked out four: Touché, Fresh & Frisky, Out for Passion and Rich Marrón.


These new Huggable Lip Colours have a similar feel to Dior Addict Lipsticks (like Diablotine reviewed here). They have a creamy moisturizing feel. They are very emollient but with a thicker texture so they really adhere to and hug the lips. What surprised me is the level of pigment. The colors have a rich payoff with a soft shine finish. Lasting power is also quite impressive. You can control the coverage by swiping back and forth a few times for more color. If you have time to go to the counter to test, I highly recommend you visit soon.

The four colors I picked (with links to where the colors are located right now online):


Touché is a good nude without being too nude:



Fresh & Frisky is a fresh natural peach that brightens the face:



Out for Passion is the best watermelon pink I've ever tried:



Rich Marrón is a nice classic, a bit brown but still nice for everyday:




Overall really pleased with these colors and formulas. I didn't have time to pull comparisons but these colors work well without any tweaking needed. My husband loves Out for Passion on me so I bought one more as a back-up. Right now the colors are limited-edition. I do hope that MAC considers making these permanent. There are 12 colors in the US, but various stores have certain shades sold out. You may have to do a bit of searching but stores probably still have stock of most colors. For the ones I reviewd:
Did you pick up any of the MAC Huggable Lip Colours? What were your favorites?

  4. I think Fresh & Frisky looks great on you too! I have to say the packaging and swatches remind me of Revlon Lip Butters, but I'm happy to see these have no shimmer.

    And thank you for the link, Sabrina! :)

  6. I picked up Love Beam which is a slightly warm medium pink yesterday. I'm now kicking myself that I didn't grab Fresh & Frisky while I had the chance. Dare I say I like this formula better than the Revlon Lip Butters? (ducks for cover)

  9. These are gorgeous. If they're like Dior Addict, I'm in! Plus, at $20 each, it's much less pricey.

  10. That Out For Passion looks absolutely stunning, though these are probably too shiny for my liking!

  14. Wow those look amazing. I'm a huge fan of the Dior lip products but these may be a more budget-friendly version.
