MAC Studded Kiss Matte Lipstick (Punk Couture)

MAC Studded Kiss lipstick is part of the Punk Couture collection which launched on December 26th in Canada. This lipstick is sold out everywhere but we never know with MAC, they might restock some of the items. Studded Kiss is a beautiful lipstick for this season!

Studded Kiss is a dark oxblood red with a matte finish. It's highly pigmented, opaque, and this one looked smooth and even on my lips, unlike Instigator (another lipstick from the same collection) which was more tricky and required a good exfoliation and a primer. I found Studded Kiss to be less drying than Instigator too, but I still prefer to wear it over my MAC Prep + Prime Lip.

The staying power is great : I wore it 5 hours and it faded a little bit but otherwise it still looked great and no bleeding around the lips at all! And that is without any primer or lip pencil.

Rimmel #107 is lighter, MAC Deeply Adored is more red and lighter. Buxom Menace is more cool toned and the finish is completely different (super glossy).

If you can't find it, I heard MAC Diva is a good dupe. I can't confirm that since I don't own it though.

The MAC Studded Kiss Matte Lipstick retail for $18 CDN and it's a limited edition.


  1. I love your comparison pictures! They really help when an item is sold out, and when trying to decide if you might already own something very similar. ;)

  2. Perfect shade, but I think I like Deeply Adored more :) I´ll have to check MAC stores here.

    1. I'm pretty sure Deeply Adored is sold out everywhere though!
