MAC Cosmetics Peacocky Collection is designed after the bold, beautiful colors of the exotic peacock. The Peacocky Collection contains twelve Kissable Lipcolour’s, designed to apply with a smooth finish like a lip gloss, but have opaque, rich color like a lipstick. Each lip colour comes packaged in a slimline vial, with a doe foot applicator. The color payoff is intense with these lip colours, applying like your average lip gloss, and then knocking your socks off with intense, opaque color like a lipstick. I loved so many of the Lipcolour’s in this collection, but I chose to choose only my favorites…the ones I would wear the most. I chose “So Vain,” and “Flaunting It.” To see the swatches and photographs of these two rich, opaque lip colour’s,
Each kissable lipcolour from this collection comes with more product than the average lip gloss from MAC. These contain 0.17oz of product, whereas the other lip glosses contain slightly less.
The slimline vial’s make the packaging long and skinny, and the doe foot applicator makes the formula apply like a lip gloss.
The color is very opaque, as you can see in the above swatches on my wrist. I was pleasantly surprised how much color these babies put down! I was expecting them to be sheer, but they gave me opaque, rich color. Each lip gloss lasted for about 2-4 hours of wear.
So Vain is a described by MAC as a “muted dirty coral,” which is pretty on target. It’s sort of a mash-up of pink, mauve, and coral, and it has a slightly milky finish to it. Take it from me, if you own this shade, you need to prep and prime your lips well beforehand because of its milkiness. I thought I had prepped my lips well enough for these swatches, and low and behold, it settled into some of the dry areas on my lips that I didn’t even realize I had! All in all, gorgeous color that is surprisingly neutral and wearable.
Flaunting It is a gray-mauve, and has purple/violet tones to it. I love this shade. It has a purple (my all-time favorite) tone to it, and it’s daring yet not too bold. I wore this shade the other day with my upper eyelids lined into a cat-eye, and the combination was simply saucy and gorgeous.
These lip colour’s are not sticky, and have no scent to them. I did feel that they were a little bit drying on the lips, so I would be sure your lips are in good, healthy condition before applying these.
