MAC Chatterbox Lipstick Review, Photos and Swatches!

MAC Chatterbox Lipstick

MAC Chatterbox Lipstick ($15) is described as a bright, red-pink with an amplified creme finish. It's definitely vibrant, but it's not in the neon category (ie: Vegas Volt, Morange, Viva Glam Nicki, etc.) It's a medium, rosy pink that is really easy to wear and adds a bit of color and brightness to the face.

This is a shade I've had on my wishlist for a while now, and recently decided to pick it up as my 'Back to MAC' trade-in.

MAC Chatterbox is extremely pigmented, creamy and applies smooth and even.

I love MAC Lipsticks in general, and I don't have a problem with any of their formulas. The amplified formula is definitely one of my favorites because of the bold, bright pigmentation, shine and the comfortable wear.

The closest dupe I have in my collection is NYX Fig Round Lipstick. NYX Fig is just a smidgen lighter (although you can't tell much from the swatches) and Chatterbox is a tad more vibrant.

I love this shade and I can already tell it's a shade that will get lots of wear - especially on nights out.

The Round-Up

Pros:
  • Bold, opaque color
  • Very flattering on my current MAC NC30 skin tone (my coloring changes often due to self tanning)
  • Applies evenly
  • Comfortable wear
  • Great lasting power
Cons:
  • None! 
Price: $14.50, MAC.

  2. I was like 'neeeeeed that!' until I saw your swatches with NYX Fig, which I should receive next week. So I think I can skip this one! :)

    1. Haha! Fig is a great color. I personally prefer Chatterbox, because the formula isn't as slippery as the NYX Round Lipsticks, so the lasting power is a bit better. Some prefer NYX though! Regardless, it's a great color dupe. I hope you enjoy Fig!

  15. Hi,


    Recently I came across some great articles on your site. The other day, I was discussing ( http://www.missnattysbeautydiary.com/2012/07/mac-chatterbox-lipstick-review.html) with my colleagues and they suggested I submit an article of my own. Your site is just perfect for what I have written! Would it be ok to submit the article? It is free of charge, of course!

    Let me know what you think

  16. Hi there, i love this lipstick, but struggle with what blush to wear with it. I often wear peach toned such as Mac Melba but feel a pink would look better. Any suggestions gratefully accepted :)

  17. Hmm...I can't remember if i've swatched this or not. It looks quite vibrant but on me Vegas Volt looks tame so I can only imagine this would look even moreso.

  18. are you wearing any liner with that?
    if so what is it?
    looks great on you :)

  19. I just bought this shade today. Love the color!

  20. Would love to try it out soon. Love the shade and the glossy finish. Will probably check it in the mall. xoxo

  21. Hi, Miss Natty! I just bought this lipstick along with Please Me. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who thinks it's similar to NYX RLS Fig. When I first saw it, the first thing that came to mind was that it looked similar - and I know that Fig looks amazing. These kind of pinks are right up my alley. Thinking of purchasing Coral Bliss next. (I love pinks, peaches, and corals.) It's just that the Cremesheen finish is scaring me... I usually prefer matte ones and I don't want anymore lipsticks I'm not going to get a lot of wear with.
