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 reviewed:
Did you pick up any of the MAC Huggable Lip Colours? What were your favorites?

    These colours are gorgeous!!

    I like the Rich Marron one best I think 🙂 Can't wait for it to be available in Australia!

    Eat. Live. Love. Repeat.

    Hey Sabrina, I was going to say Out of Passion is my favorite on you. Apparently great minds think alike 😉 Haven't checked these out yet but I do plan to soon!

    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.

    Out for Passion does look the prettiest 😀 😀

    And thank you for the link, Sabrina! 🙂

    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)

    I agree with your husband–Out for Passion is beautiful on you. It looks like spring 🙂

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

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

    I liked the Rich Marron. Too Faced Sweet Maple looks similar on my lips. =o)
    I knew I should have gotten Cherry Crazed.

    Rich Marron is kind of perfect on you. The photos look amazing, I'm always striving to capture such a crisp white background
