MAC Indulge Lipsticks for Fall 2013 Review, Photos & Swatches

MAC Indulge Lipsticks for Fall 2013

The MAC Indulge Collection for Fall 2013 includes five MAC Lipsticks ($15 USD / $18 CAD) in beautiful neutral shades and luxurious textures. The collection will be available online August 15, 2013 and on counters August 22, 2013 (North America) & October 2013 (International) at MAC. Check out the entire collection here.

The two shades I have include By Design, a soft, shimmering beige and Smash Hit, a sheer golden sparkle. MAC always makes incredible lipsticks, and these two definitely hold their own.

By Design is a Frost texture, which gives it a metallic, reflective sheen. It’s a very interested shade, because while it is beige, it looks almost taupe on the lips. While I don’t think I’ll be reaching for it a lot, it is quite nice and I think it would make a great nude lipstick for some skin tones. It wears comfortably for a few hours and applies really nicely too.

Smash Hit is a Dazzle texture; it reminds me of those sparkle ‘top-coat’ eyeshadows, only for lips. It’s a sheer lipstick that really just deposits glitter on the lips. It’s slightly gritty, with a patchy application, but it’s meant to be that way. I think it looks beautiful on its own if you’re going for a bit of sparkle, but it would also be great to top off any other lip color or stain for some extra shimmer. Even after the lipstick wears off (which doesn’t take long) the glitter lingers on lips for hours.

I can’t say that either of these shades are must-have material, but I think they are pretty good- as long as you’re into frost and shimmer!
