MAC Reel Sexy Lipsticks Review & Swatches

When I first heard about MAC’s Reel Sexy collection, I wanted nearly everything, but I only ended up picking out two lipsticks and two glosses. This review will feature two of the new lipstick shades released… Pink Popcorn and Reel Sexy.


MAC Pink Popcorn (L) and Reel Sexy (R) Lipsticks:

MAC Pink Popcorn Lipstick:

Pink Popcorn is a light-medium lavender pink with a lustre finish.

MAC Reel Sexy Lipstick:

Reel Sexy is a light-medium peachy-coral with an amplified finish.

At first, I wasn’t sure about getting Pink Popcorn because it looks very similar to Budding Love, but I’m glad I got it because I actually prefer Pink Popcorn over Budding Love as it looks more natural. This is most likely due to its sheer coverage. It’s quite buildable though, and it’s a very pretty color. Reel Sexy is another gorgeous color! It reminds me a bit of Flamingo, but Reel Sexy looks more peach/orange. I skipped Heroine (the other new shade released), because it looked very similar to Violetta (a color I rarely wear). Watch Me Simmer is a repromote and can be viewed here.

What do you think of these shades? Did you pick up anything from this collection?

Where to buy: MAC counters, stores, and online.

Disclosure: The products featured in this review have been purchased by me. All opinions are honest and completely mine.

  1. I am always anxiously waiting for your swatches because they are so natural! I only picked up Reel Sexy but when I applied it, it was such a scary bright coral color =]

    After looking at your swatches, I wish I picked up Pink Popcorn!

  2. Thank you! 🙂

    You can probably make Reel Sexy work by dabbing a bit on your lips then smooshing them together. Pink Popcorn is easier to wear for me because it's semi-sheer.

  3. I wore them a lot when they first came out and loved them. I do need to start wearing them again before the new fall colors come out and maybe post some photos. I've been distracted with new shades lately. LOL
