M.A.C Innocence, Beware! Lipstick – Review, Photos, Swatches

Product Breakdown:

Innocence, Beware! is described by MAC as a Light Yellow Pink in a Cremesheen Formula.

I would personally describe this as a pale pink based nude. This Lipstick is a repromote from the MAC Venomous Villains collection.

At first swipe, Innocence, Beware! provides a semi-sheer level of coverage, and if you are looking for full opacity you will need 2-3 layers of lipstick.

Ease of application:

Deceptively, this is not a swipe-and-go lipstick. The slight chalkiness, combined with a slightly thick formula makes Innocence, Beware! a very unforgiving lipstick. If you have dry patches, deep creases or flakiness on your lips, Innocence, Beware! will highlight them.

Before applying this lipstick it is almost essential to use a lip scrub and a good nourishing lip balm or primer to disguise any imperfections that this lipstick might cling to.

For me, the stuffing around is worth it because this is a perfect nude for my very pale, very pink-based skin tone.


I have not found Innocence, Beware! to be an especially long-lasting lipstick. It lasts for around 3 hours on my lips, but if I go anywhere near food or even a glass of water this seems to disappear off my lips.


This product is a standard-issue MAC Lipstick in the traditional black casing. Iconic, really.
