MAC Lovelorn

Lovelorn is one of my many 'bought on a whim' purchases. It's kind of sad that I actually, for a couple of weeks, forgot that I even bought this lipstick. Only after recent a purse clean-out, I have remembered it! I guess that day I was just hungry for another pink lipstick, can anybody relate to that? After finding Lovelorn in my purse that day, I thought about returning it. Thanks to those whose swatches came up in my search that day, you definitely convinced me to keep this beaut :)


I learned to stay away from blue toned pink lipsticks the hard way. Oh I have lost count on how many I had to get rid off because I simply couldn't make them work with my skin tone. Lovelorn is a medium blue pink that seems to work with me though. I can finally and proudly say that I am able to wear a pink lipstick with blue undertones :D


I initially thought Lovelorn would be pretty close to the other famous pink MAC lipstick Angel. They are definitely in the same family, I'd say cousins. Lovelorn is a tad darker than Angel. I also think Angel's consistency is way creamier than Lovelorn's. It may be due to the fact that Angel is in Frost finish and Lovelorn is in Lustre finish. In my opinion they are both semi-opaque. I feel like Lovelorn is more of a summer color also, what do you think?


Photo on the left side has Angel on left but on swatches they are switched around, which makes Lovelorn on left and Angel on right.


 If you're looking for an everyday, easy-to-wear pink lipstick, definitely check out Lovelorn. It looks like such a boring color (sorry Lovelorn lovers!) in the tube, but once applied it's love! No wonder I initially wanted to return it, I love it now that I wear it :)

What is your favorite summery pink lipstick?

  2. I have and love Lovelorn! This was my first real pinky-pink lipstick I ever got, and I too let it sit unused for a while.... but I pulled it out this year and have in my makeup bag ever since - great shade!

  3. I have and love both Angel and Lovelorn... haha. This post reminded me I owned both. Yikes. Also, I'm not sure if I have a fave Summery pink. I'll have to get back to you on that! On the other hand, you rock Lovelorn. <3

  5. I prefer lovelorn to angel (I tend to hate frosts) but I can vaguely remember a few drugstore dupes that make me hesitate to purchase this. Still...a blue undertone that is wearable? Dreamy~

  7. Oh this is gorgeous, I don;t think I've ever seen it at the shops. Maybe coz as you said it looks boring in the tube so I never paid attention to it. It works beautifully with your complexion, I'll have to check it out. At the moment I'm loving Revlon Pink Pout, such an easy to wear matte that I'd been neglecting for a while.

  10. Thanks so much for this post, I have been looking for a nice (paler) pink lipstick. I have Creme Cup, but with my warm undertones it is hard to pull off. Lovelorn seems friendlier and lustre is definitely one of my favorite MAC finishes. Can't wait to check it out in store. PS: cute dog! :)

    I've not tried any MAC lipsticks yet... we don't get them where I live :( At the moment pink lipstick would have to be Korres' natural pink.favourite

  21. This colour is sooo pretty on you. I don't have any neutral pinks, I don't know if it'll suit my skintone though x

    Lovelorn is beautiful on you! What eyeshadows do you have on in these pictures? I love the look...

  23. Thank you hun :)

  24. So I am not the only one who forgot about it for a while huh? :) It's so wearable and such an everyday kind of color - glad I didn't return it :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. If we are reminded of the lipsticks we own by others' posts about them....then we have a huge problem! :D I'm the same way, gotta love being a makeup addict! Thanks so much! :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thank you Charlotte, looking forward to your post (or at least twitpic!) wearing this beauty! :))

    ReplyDelete
  27. Angel is my favorite MAC lipstick, still...though just like you I am not crazy about the frost finish at all! I am sure there is a dupe for it at the drugstore, it's not such a unique color. I am just happy about it because I can actually comfortably wear it :))

    ReplyDelete
  28. Glad you liked it! :)

  29. It's great that you rediscovered a product, you remind me to shop my stash as I have been neglecting lots of products myself! Yep it definitely looks boring, I would have never even looked at this color had the makeup artist not shown it to me. Who knows maybe there are more colors like this we have overlooked :)

  30. Thank you Esterlyn!

  31. It really is, doesn't make me self-conscious when I wear it out unlike some other pinks I have dealt with in the past :)

  32. Your very welcome! I've tried Creme Cup but it looked like death on me, just can't make it work, otherwise it's a very pretty shade! Definitely try it on before making your decision :) Hope you like it!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Your welcome lady! If I apply it heavily then it also makes me look like a corpse lol I know what you mean! So I do it lightly and I love the results :) But you're right Lovelorn is just much more wearable!

  34. Thanks for your comment Paula!!!!! Omg it's so nice to see a comment from you :D Hope to see you soon! ♥

    ReplyDelete
  35. Because it looks like such a blah color, that's probably why you haven't noticed it :) I wouldn't have noticed it if the makeup artist didn't show it to me that day! I've looked up Chatterbox and it looks gorgeous, I will definitely try it on myself on my next trip to MAC :)

  36. Thank you, and your welcome Maya :)

  37. Thank you!! I'm wearing all MAC products for this look - Sharkskin Shadestick (could be any dark gray pencil shadow, jumbo stick etc) all over lid, Hocus Pocus (dark gray with gold shimmer) eyeshadow right on top and blended onto the crease, Texture to blend (shimmery terracotta/brown) , Orb (soft ivory/beige) as highlight :)

  38. Can only agree! :D

  39. Thanks Kelly, yep it totally reminded me of Angel...until I swatched them right next to each other, it a bit darker :)

  42. I hope you can try MAC lipsticks soon, I think they're great! I've been wanting try Korres makeup for a while, I will look into this one, thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thank you Tass! Well based on my experience, you cannot know whether it'll suit you unless you try it on :) When I first looked at Lovelorn based on the makeup artist's recommendation I said no way! She insisted, I tried it, I forgot about it, and now I really like wearing it :)

  45. Lovelorn is gorgeous on you. I know what you mean about struggling to make blue based shades work for you. I have neutral skin that pulls warm, but I am so drawn to cool toned lipsticks!

  49. Ah, Lovelorn is one lipstick I've been meaning to get for ages - never thought it would work that well on a non-pink undertoned skin! Yay for universally flattering shades!!!
