MAC Studded Kiss

MAC recently launched the Punk Couture collection and I snapped up just one item, Studded Kiss matte lipstick.

Studded Kiss is a deep red toned wine colour.  It has a matte finish but applies smoothly over lip balm with no tugging at the lips.  Initially it has a glossy finish that dries down to a more matte finish-but is not completely matte.  Unusually for a matte lipstick I did experience some feathering around my top lip line.  Next time I'll use a lip liner to see if this prevents it.

Overall it's a lovely deep colour for the winter months that will suit most skintones.  It's not the most low maintenance lipstick you'll ever own but the colour payoff is definitely worth it!



  1. Such a gorgeous shade! It's a shame there was some feathering - I hate it when that happens! x

  2. Oh my godd this is so beautiful!! Such a 'me' colour haha, I loveee a good red and this one is so, sooo rich and gorgeous!
    It looks beautiful on you...and umm, this is now officially on my 'list'.

  3. That is one vampy lip color! Wouldn't dare to pick it up myself, but you're totally rocking it :)

  4. Hey Stacey, to be honest most items in this collection are a bit intimidating for me, but you managed to snap up a reasonably wearable one (in my book anyways)! Every lipstick looks so luscious on you!

  5. This is beautiful! Looks similar to Dubonnet which I also love xx

  6. Lovely shadee, I'm scared to try dark colours as I really don't think I can pull it off well enough ha xx

  7. Looks beautiful! I definitely want to invest in more MAC lipsticks because I really love my Shaghai Spice shade :-)

  8. It's such a gorgeous shade! I wish I suited deeper wine colours but I just can't pull it off. I would definitely have tried this if I had :) xx

  12. This is stunning, not something I would probably choose, but it is lovely x

  13. Looks really nice Stacey!
    I wish I could pull off red lipstick... I'm a nude lipstick gal! I haven't found one that I feel confident wearing... but I'm still on the hunt! One day maybe... ;-)
    Happy Saturday!

  14. Another fabulous colour. You suit so many different shades of lipsticks.
