When I visited the MAC Store to check out the new MAC SHOP MAC COOK MAC Collection, this lipstick was not on my list. Based on online swatches, I thought it was a generic bright pink and very dupe-able. However, when I saw this lipstick on the makeup artists at the shop, it was just so beautiful when worn and I felt I had to have it!
MAC Quick Sizzle lipstick is a matte hot pink. It is more moisturising than most mattes however. It is long lasting and leaves a slight stain on your lips even if most of it has come off. As for the colour itself, it is a medium hot pink, with slightly bluish undertones that are definitely flattering on the teeth making them appear a bit whiter! On my lips it turns a bit more bluish than on the tube.
Quick Sizzle vs my other hot pink lipsticks:
MAC Quick Sizzle seems brighter than Girl About Town, which is a tad darker and a lot glossier. MAC Quick Sizzle is also darker and more reddish than Petals and Peacocks or MAC Gladiola, which are more blue-based. Sleek MakeUP Amp is brighter and more blue-based than MAC Quick Sizzle.
I now think this is the must-have product in the collection, which is ironic as it wasn't on my list to begin with. The photos and swatches online don't do it justice at all, you should definitely check this out at your local shop when available.
This collection is available at Selfridges in the UK and will be available to other MAC stores from March 2012.
