MAC Mystical Lipstick Review & Swatches

MAC Mystical Lipstick summer 2014

I am in love with MAC Mystical Lipstick. This lovely little shade limited edition and will be available with the MAC Alluring Aquatics Summer 2014 Collection.

This is such a me shade and I know MANY of you are going to adore it.

Take a look!

MAC Mystical Lipstick is a stunning dusky shade of warm shade of rose. It’s delicious! It’s a color I’ll easily use daily and although it doesn’t really evoke Summer to me I think it’ll look incredible with bronze-y looks or tanned skin!

The color tugs slightly during application with a bit of tackiness for some reason and a hint of a glossy sheen on lips. It isn’t drying and feels very comfortable on my lips with a wear time of around five hours. It really pops further with a hint of gloss on top. It’s not a traditional MLBB rose but it still manages to give off that pretty MLBB finish…I dunno, I always consider dusky roses like this a good MLBB (my lips but better) shade for me.

MAC Mystical Lipstick Swatches

I’ve mentioned it in a few of my reviews for MAC’s Summer 2014 Collection but I love, love, love this packaging. All the pieces in the collection come in a aqua metallic mirrored casing that has tiny droplets of faux “water” on them. It’s a 3D effect so it gives the look like you just dropped the product into the ocean or something and droplets of water are still clinging to it after you scooped out!

MAC Mystical Lipstick is a must have shade in my opinion and will look incredible with the new MAC Sea Me Hear Me Extra Dimension Blush also launching with this collection! I’m hitting the Muse Approval on this shade! It’s too gorgeous not to grab up.

    This looks like a gorgeous “your lips but better” type of shade! Great review!


  • 5/9/14 15:28 Ashley:

    Love this color on you! Especially with the hot pink top, it balances nicely with your brown eyes and hair. A very nice berry shade, looks very hydrating too!


  • 5/9/14 15:52 jann:

    What a beautiful shade. It looks gorgeous on you! I’ll definitely have to go out and grab this.


  • 5/9/14 17:01 Annie:

    As lovely as the shade is, I wouldn’t say it’s “unique” or a “must-have” respectively/ I wished that the colours were more original, but the packaging is amazinggggggggg♥


  • 5/10/14 1:39 Olivia Frescura:

    Love that packaging! So cool.


  • 5/10/14 7:03 Susannah:

    Love it!

    Enjoy every moment of your vacation, Isabella. It will seem strange not reading your makeup reviews for over a week. I’ll just have to spend some time in the archives to get my “muse fix.”


  • 5/10/14 9:54 Divadebbi:

    Gorgeous! My type of color to the tee. A wee surprised how deep it is for a summer offering but this is my year round preference anyway.

    Is, it looks dewy and moist. Is it? I think my last MAC lip purchase was longwearing. It was horribly drying and I couldnt bear to use it.



  • 5/10/14 12:23 Monica!:

    Looking good muse! I have my mind set on getting all the eyeshadows, the lipsticks, we will see….


  • 5/10/14 13:48 Sara:

    Oh Muse how I envy you and your ability to “test” these products before they are available to the general public!!! I CAN NOT WAIT for this collection!!! :) :)


  • 5/10/14 21:40 deathbyjava:

    LOL – when I first saw the picture, I actually thought you had flung some water drops onto the lipstick case so it ties in with the aquatic theme.

    I am on a self-imposed no more buying lippy – I was rummaging around for my eyeliner yesterday and opened up my lip product drawer to find about six lippies that I haven’t even opened yet. But if I wasn’t on a ban, I would scoop this out. The shade looks like it would be a MLBB and I love these kind of shades as they are such no brainers to swipe on and go!


  • 5/11/14 16:33 Renu:

    That shade is SO pretty – I want it, despite not being much of a MAC fan. You know, Muse, I honestly thought you had dunked the bullet into water or at least held it to a sprinkler for a second or two to get that effect for the photographs!


    • 5/19/14 10:21 Isabella Muse:

      right? it’s a cool effect renu! The packaging is rather brilliant 😀


  • 5/12/14 1:09 Catluuvver:

    You look gorgeous. I absolutely love this lipstick on you. I usually try & pass on Cremesheens because of their wear time on me, but this looks like a must have, kind of neutral LS. I have a very hard time with nudes, I don’t have any because I have been wearing very bold & sometimes vampy lipsticks since an early start with the love of lipstick. I’d rather wear Chapstick than a nude LS. But with the packaging & seeing a few swatches of this lipstick it looks like this will be on my list.


  • 5/12/14 9:02 kellly:

    Wow, I love it! I’m definitely going to have to check out this collection. I love the packaging, too!


  • 5/12/14 14:50 Majick:

    OK so the packaging has me intrigued… Are the droplets actual bumps on the outside of the case? OR are they a 3-D picture on the outside? I love the aqua case but not sure I would like it if it always looked wet. LOL I’d be wiping it off every five minutes.

    I htink the color is really pretty and looks great on you. Just a little over MLBB – maybe like you bit your lip in anticipation. he he


    • 5/19/14 10:21 Isabella Muse:

      they are actually raised so they give the casing a textured feel. It’s quite cool! 😀 thanks!!!!!!!!!!!


  • 5/13/14 4:31 butterdaisy:

    I’ve been through all the swatches a million times and have finally settled on my list. LOL! 2 nail polishes, both blushes, 2 lipsticks (including Mystical), 1 eyeshadow, 1 lipglass, and the Refined Golden bronzing powder. I’m beyond excited! I have seen plenty of OMG cute packaging that I’ve been able to admire from afar, but these I can’t resist. Must haves! Thanks for sharing your swatches.


    • 5/19/14 10:19 Isabella Muse:

      sounds good to me chica 😀 my pleasure :) Hope it helped!


  • 5/15/14 17:29 Nora Gouma:

    It look so pretty on your lips….Nice review dear…..xoxoxo…..^_^


    • 5/19/14 9:58 Isabella Muse:

      thanks Nora!


  • 5/18/14 22:42 Nicola M:

    Just got one!! Classy as always it is.. Love MAC


  • 5/28/14 8:46 Bonnie:

    I love this collection! I bought the eyeshadow in the green shade, and the blush in Seduced by the Sea. They look amazing, and I just wish I had picked up the Mystical Lipstick too because in the store it looked perfect but I had just purchased other lipsticks at Sephora and didn’t want to spend more money. But I think I’ll have to visit MAC again to pick up that lipstick before it’s gone for good.


    • 5/28/14 9:14 Isabella Muse:

      nice haul Bonnie 😀 If you can find it def grab it, it’s a really lovely shade :)


  • 7/10/14 14:51 Samantha:

    This is a gorgeous shade on you! I would love to get my hands on this. I’m a sucker for packaging, and that’s what caught my eye in the first place haha. Thank you for sharing! One question: Is it drying? Or moisturizing?


    • 7/10/14 15:11 Isabella Muse:

      aw thanks Samantha you’re too kind! feels quite lovely on, not drying in the least, lightly hydrating!
