MAC Nocturnals Tastitints Set Review & Swatches

MAC Nocturnals Tastitints Set

MAC Nocturnals Tastitints Set ($32.50) is one of the limited edition Nocturnals Gift Sets that MAC introduced for Holiday 2013. This set is cute because it combines four different flavored and scented Tastitint Lip Conditioners. If like like MAC Suntints these are a similar style product and right on time for the Winter weather ahead as they keep lips moist, hydrated, and glossy!

MAC Nocturnals Tastitints Set Holiday 2013

The MAC Nocturnals Tastitints Set contains four 0.27 oz lip conditioners. These each have a unique flavor and color. Although tinted all four look exactly the same on my lips and run quite clear and sheer. Even on less than pigmented lips you’ll likely see very little color.

You get:

  • Mintessence (mint flavor)
  • Sugared Vanilla (sweet vanilla cookie-like flavor)
  • Taste of Paradise (fruity flavor)
  • Dash of Lavender (lavender flavor)

MAC Nocturnals Tastitints Lip Conditioners

These have a gel-like texture with a high glossy finish. They kinda remind me of a water down Vaseline lip product but don’t take that in the wrong way as they are very pleasant on lips. The texture is lightweight and highly shiny which makes them ideal for topping on lipstick to add shine and glossiness. They are pleasantly moist on my lips and have a lighter texture without any really tackiness or stickiness which means the wear time is a little shorter at around two hours or less. My lips feel quite plush during the wear and I can’t help but think what a life saver they’ll be when the super cold weather sets as I’m prone to chapped lips. The slick texture feels very comforting and soothing on my drier lips. And did I mention I love that each one as a unique flavor? The flavor and scent are subtle but those sensitive to scented and flavored lip products might want to test in store prior to committing.

Overall, the set is adorable and gains a Muse Approval for purchase. Granted these do not have the variety some other gloss sets have and a bit more tint would be quite a good deal nicer but the formula is such an A+ I don’t mind the lack of pigment!

Do check these out! You’ll likely love ’em!
