MAC added ten brand new shades of the Huggable Lipcolors ($24 CAD) to its Summer 2016 Transformed Collection. With a gel-like formulation that's both lightweight and high-shine, the Huggable Lipcolors is also moisturizing and comfortable on the lips. To see some swatches of a couple of shades, click.......

The MAC Huggable Lipcolors come in very sleek and shiny gunmetal lipstick tubes. The tip of the lipsticks are flattened, not the best for a precise application but because the formulation of these is rather sheer, it's not a huge problem.

The Huggable Lipcolors are a moisturizing, semi-sheer lipsticks. The formulation is surprisingly hard so you really have to use pressure during application for the product to actually get on the lips. The lip colors have a sweet vanilla scent, the same as that of the MAC lipsticks. "Origami Orange" (a new shade for Summer 2016) is a gorgeous orange coral; the shade has a beautiful sheen and the color is buildable. "What a Feeling!" (a pre-existing shade) is a light cool-tone pink. This shade is rather sheer compared to the orange but it's still buildable. As you can imagine, the wear of these is not great but the color is very lightweight and comfy on the lips.
