MAC Kelly Osbourne Lipstick ★ Strip Poker Review + Swatches

MAC Kelly Osbourne Lipstick: Strip Poker

When MAC released the Sharon & Kelly Osbourne collection in June, I was only able to grab the Peaches & Cream blush and a Dodgy Girl lipstick; I remember all the good stuff from this collection sold out so fast, especially the Kelly Osbourne lipsticks.

As usual, it doesn't matter if I like the lipstick shades or not, as long as it is a Limited Edition collection, I want it! Too bad I was only able to grab Dodgy Girl and I regret not getting Kelly Yum Yum >.< I thought, since I already have Candy Yum Yum and they are both quite similar, I really don't need a another one... Who would have thought I regret it now! Hahah ~

Later on I decided that I need another Kelly Osbourne lipstick in my life as I adore the packaging and I need a shade that is good for everyday wear, then I spot someone selling the MAC Strip Poker lipstick in the Walk in Wardrobe makeup sales group and of course, I immediately contact the seller and claims on it heheh.

MAC Strip Poker is described as a light nude with a Matte finish. It looks like a pinky beige from the lipstick bullet and when I wear it, the color looks more like a concealer than a nude lipstick on me. I guess I just love nude lipsticks so much, I try to convince myself they all suits my skin tone lol.

MAC Osbourne collection's packaging is... first look is weird and awkward, I mean purple and red together is just... I haven't come across anything with a mixture of purple and red, I usually see purple pair with pink ~ & then the more I look into the packaging, the prettier it gets.

MAC Strip Poker comes packaged in a light purple / lilac tube with Kelly Osbourne's autograph printed in red. I like this, it's not too much nor too boring and I love that the packaging matches Kelly's purple hair!

imageFORMULA / PIGMENTATIONimage
Strip Poker is a Matte finish, unlike Ruby Woo, it is a lot more creamier. I always compare all MAC matte lipsticks to Ruby Woo as I find it the most drying and hard application matte lipstick MAC ever came out with. I am thinking, maybe MAC has improved their formula? Because all the new matte formula lipstick MAC has came out with in 2014 are mostly creamy, no pull or drag during application.

Strip Poker has a great coverage and it is very pigmented. When first apply it is creamy but sets into a matte and since this is a nude NUDE lipstick shade with a matte finish, if you apply it on dry chapped lips, it's like disaster lol, the lipstick really emphasize dry areas and all these little dry flakes looks so obvious.

imageAPPLICATIONimage
No pull nor tugs during application, are you surprised with a MAC matte finish lipstick?! Me not as surprised anymore as most of the MAC matte finished lipsticks I have tried this year are all very creamy.

MAC Strip Poker applies smooth and easy.

I wish I can give an approximate hours of lasting time for MAC Strip Poker, but I can't sorry :(

Since it looks so pale, looks almost like a concealer on me; I always top with a gloss when wearing this lipstick, and sometimes mix it with another lip product.

  1. I actually really like the purple and red packaging! It's so pretty :) I hardly ever wear nude lipsticks because it makes me look really washed out and kind of sick LOL but the colour looks really good on you!!! It's a shame it emphasises dry patches on the lips :(

    1. Thanks Fifi ^^ yeah ~ the struggle of finding the perfect nude that doesn't make your skin look washed out... I have that problem too, Strip Poker is one of those that make me look pale as zzz but I still can't stay away from nudes hehehh

  2. Oooo...a creamy feeling matte nude! That sounds awesome! The only nude lipstick that I have that is truly a flesh tone nude is from Lime crime, however I don't wear it on its own, I need to add a bit more brown or pink to it! This looks great on you!

  3. What a pretty color on you! I tried my friend's matte lipstick in red, and it was really drying on my lips. But if you say this is creamy, then I'll have to check it out!

    1. They could all be a matte finish, but the formula really depends on the color, I think ~ I had Ruby Woo, it's a matte and that one really drags my lips and it's really drying. I have recently reviewed Mangrove (from Proenza Schouler collection), it's also matte but it's a creamy one :)
