The MAC Metallic Lips Collection features 18 limited edition shades in a new, layer able, metallic finish.
You can make them “molten” but you can wear them somewhat sheer if you’re not quite as bold as all that.
All the shades are limited edition with two really unusual (and avant-garde) colors: “Zerocool” a stunning green, and “Anything Once” a blue with parti-color shimmer.
But the rest of the collection is really wearable, with a palette of copper, red, neutrals, and a white frost (Pearly One) plus a very light brown with gold glitter (“Digging for Gold”).
Our MAC Metallic Lips Samples:
Digging For Gold – light brown with gold glitter *I liked this one best on bare lips applied as a light coat, or take it all the way to “molten”
Jupiter – bronzed neutral *the most “molten” of the colors we tried, but wearable to the effect of molten metal if you want it that way
Pearly One – confetti’ed white frost *love this one! It makes lips poutier even when they are bare or try it over your favorite lip color
Metal Head – blackened purple with multi-coloured pearl *you can wear this as a sheer wash but for the bold, layer it as a new way to wear “dark” purple
Hades Fire – cool red burgundy *wear this slightly plummy burgundy as a warm weather alternative to a bold red
Disobedient – deep burgundy red wine *this is your “naughty” alter-ego. The shimmery wine is perfect for dazzling someone on date night

Why You Want * Need These:
These lipsticks are really not like any of the others we’ve tested. They’re shimmery and versatile, with a range of colors that are fun to try. Some can be layered over other colors and all of them make a sparkly to startlingly glamorous statement. Add at least one of these to your collection before they disappear!
