MAC Yield to Love and Hearts Aflame Lipstick Review & Swatches

MAC A Novel Romance Lipsticks

MAC Yield to Love and MAC Hearts Aflame Lipstick ($16) are two of the several limited edition shades that are launching with the MAC A Novel Romance Collection for Fall 2014.

Both shades are absolute must haves in my opinion as they are not only pigmented but create shades for Fall!

MAC Yield to Love Lipstick is a rather stunning rose shade with cooler undertones but still easy to where. Personally I don’t do cooler roses well but this shade looks incredible on. It has a nice balmy texture with a soft sheen finish and full pigment on a single swipe with an even, smooth, soft look on lips that wears for a nice five hour period without feeling dry or migrating on my drier lips. It’s a playful color that should be universally flattering shade on many skin tones.

MAC Hearts Aflame Lipstick is JUST the red I like for my skin tone. This is a warmer, vampy brick red with a matte finish. I admit it’s terribly uncomfortable to wear on my drier lips as I can feel it clinging to those drier areas but it does apply very well with incredible pigmentation and a creamy texture that didn’t tug on my lips as I applied. It wears very long at around five and half hours and leaves a hint of a stain behind well after it fades. I felt it was a touch drying so gloss on top did make things more comfortable for me. It is very dramatic though and the shade is opaque on a single application and really pops with gloss on top! This is a beautiful Fall red so if you like warmer shades of red and matte finishes I imagine Hearts Aflame will be on your hit list!

After trying these two new shades I’m quite excited for the others in the A Novel Romance Collection!

    I adore Hearts Aflame but if I’m realy honest I think it looks a lot like Viva Glam I and I And now I am going to repeat that sentence untill Hearts Aflame sells out.
