I reviewed and checked out MAC Kissable LipColours before but MAC has released five shades with the new MAC Shop Collection that you might just want to check out.
I find MAC Kissable LipColour jumps around a bit formula wise as lighter shades wear patchy and dry versus darker ones which have a smoother finish. I’m not a lover of lip creams and essentially I categorize this as such.

These run thicker than a typical gloss and have a cream finish with a satiny dry down. As I mentioned the formula jumps around a bit for me as I love some and own some great shades of the product but dislike others. The lighter shades seem to accentuate dry, chapped lips and tend to migrate around a fair bit on my mouth. Darker shades have a comfortable wear and a smoother finish, these I find I like.
MAC Shop is a mix of darker and lighter colors. The three shades I tested out were Scan-delicious (bright raspberry), So Vain (nude beige peach), and En-chantee (mod pink). You can probably guess En-Chantee was the worst of the lot. It applied very patchy and aged my lips. Even with balm underneath the wear is really rather bad. The other two shades had a nice finish and applied smoothly without issues. Wear time varies but I can get in about five hours in with these however I did feel they suck the moisture right out of my lips if I do head into a three hour wear period.
Out of the lot So Vain, a color I already own, proved the nicest.

Kissable LipColour is definitely a matter of preference. If you prefer lip creams with a satiny finish I imagine these will prove an absolute joy for you. If you’re more of a glossy, hydrating girl, you probably won’t like them.
These are available now at MAC counters or online at maccosmetics.com
