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.

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.
What do you think of these romance novel-inspired shades? Do they whet your appetite?
Purchased by me. All opinions are honest and my own.
