MAC A Novel Romance (Partial) Collection Photos, Swatches, and Review

| 42 Comments

Hi, there! So, as you may or may not know, I’ve been taking some time off from wearing makeup because I broke out/allergic reaction to something, and I’m trying to narrow it down. So, you will be getting only lip swatches of the recent MAC A Novel Romance Collection. I picked up 3 the morning of the release: Yield to Love (Online Exclusive), Hearts Aflame, and Lingering Kiss.

(L-R: Hearts Aflame, Yield to Love, Lingering Kiss)

Yield to Love, Cremesheen, is a beautiful plum-toned pink, and it was also the ONLINE EXCLUSIVE. Super glossy and smooth, even finish to this lipstick. It’s a great natural looking pink.

Hearts Aflame, Matte, is my favorite. I need another one of these STAT. This is a beautiful matte brick red. Super sassy and chic. I was extremely pleased by the formula of this lipstick. It was super smooth and applied evenly!

Next, we have Lingering Kiss, Matte. When I put this on, I was seeing an almost black shade, so I asked my son. He said, “Purple!” So, there you have it, a nice purple-toned burgundy! I was impressed with the formula of this shade, as well. Pretty smooth and even. I definitely would recommend exfoliating lips before wearing this shade and the previous one.

I’m thinking of going into the store on Thursday, August 21st, for the store release, but you can also find these on the Macy’s and Nordstrom’s website.

  1. I bought a few things from this collection, everything will be in tomorrow. I cannot wait to dive into it!

  2. eeeekkkkkkk now I need to hit MAC asap. You always get the best lippies!!!

  3. All of those colors are gorgeous!! I really want to try lingering kiss- I love the wine-colored lips during fall and winter 🙂

  4. Wow that last color – the dark – I REALLY want to try something like that for fall! I just love the look!

  5. Gorgeous! I can’t wait to hit up MAC again. It’s been awhile, pretty sure I’m having withdrawals.

  6. I have a real love hate relationship with lipstick. I love how it looks and I like to use it, but it never stays on long. It is because I fiddle with my lips a lot, but it drives me crazy that the color doesn’t stay. How are these in that regard?

  7. I love these colours on your skin tone, but know for a fact they wouldn’t suit me. I can only wear blue tinted lip colours, otherwise they wash me out! I’ve never tried MAC lipsticks (not a massive fan of MAC), but of all their products I’ve heard great things about the lipstick!

  15. These look beautiful. I should mix up my look more. I stick to neutrals.
