REVIEW: MAC A Novel Romance Lipsticks – Lingering Kiss, Hearts Aflame & Yield to Love


Hey everyone!

I’m back with a mini lipstick haul from maccosmetics.com and they are limited edition from the latest collection “A Novel Romance”. Prior to the online release, I saw some images associated to the collection. I don’t know if they’re meant to be satirical but they’re so cheesy, they cracked me up! 😛

The hot Jesus lookalike model in the campaign pictures strangely looks more made-up than the female lol. I’m so loving the muscles smoky eye make-up the artist applied on the guy though 😀

Singaporeans! Find out how to buy from maccosmetics.com here!

Inspired by romance novel covers, this collection features deep and luscious shades like plum and burgundy (omg my most loved – shut up and take my money!). Products launched include eye shadows (A Novel Romance, An Amorous Adventure and A Passionate Quest), a mascara (Haut and Naughty Too Black Lash), tinted lipglass (in Bared For You, Wanting More, Pure Fiction, Reckless Desire and Talk Sexy), lipsticks (in Myself, Yield to Love, A Novel Romance, Good Kisser, Hearts Aflame and Lingering Kiss) and powder blush (in Fun Ending and Animal Instincts). I, of course, was more interested in the lipsticks! Honestly, all the lipstick shades are very pretty, but I couldn’t possibly buy all six of them – that would leave me broke for the rest of the month. So I chose my THREE I absolutely love!

All 6 lipstick colours. From left: Myself (soft shimmery nude beige), Yield to Love (midtone rose), A Novel Romance (light cool dusty pink), Good Kisser (midtone fuchsia), Hearts Aflame (midtone brick red), Lingering Kiss (deep plum red)

If you have read any of my FAVOURITES posts, you’d definitely be able to guess the colours I picked (without looking at the title of course). My top 3 choices were Hearts Aflame, Lingering Kiss and Yield to Love because as you can see from the official swatch, they are the darkest among all hehe. I was torn between Yield to Love and Good Kisser (what a gorgeous shade of pink) but I picked the former in the end due to it being “online exclusive”.

Compare!

Each lipstick retails for US$16 (S$20) on maccosmetics.com but the last time I checked, all of them were sold out! WOW. But I can totally understand why because the payoff is really awesome! And the colours are exactly the kind of dark I’m looking for.

Since most of them are not online exclusive, they should be available in Singapore outlets soon but it’s definitely going to be priced around S$30. I think there was a soft launch (or a sneak preview) of this collection in Raffles City outlet way before the official release because I saw someone selling Lingering Kiss on Carousell and the seller claimed that she bought the last piece. So MACaholics in Singapore, be sure to grab your desired products once this collection is launched in other MAC stores here! They will run out in no time.

My total damage for this haul is US$60 including shipping. I used comGateway for their forwarding service this time and I must say they’re a hundred times better than vPost in terms of efficiency, speed and cost. So goodbye vPost for now.

Did you buy anything from this collection? Feel free to share your reviews in the comments below!

Thanks for reading lovelies ❤

  1. Omg you look good in all 3! But I like Lingering Kiss best. Too bad it’s sold out, if not I might cave in to it 😦 MAC LE items always sold out one…. Sian.

    Also do you whiten your teeth?
