At this time of year it seems to be all about the reds, the deep berries and as it is all year round, the nudes. But it’s unfair to leave the pinks out – especially the super bright ones.
I personally adore a bright pink lip, I think it just does something to brighten the face, it looks super cute and means you can get away with doing the minimal with the rest of your makeup.
This lipstick is a neon pink, matte finish triumph.
As with all MAC lipsticks, it’s got that beautiful – almost good enough to eat – vanilla sweet scent. As a matte, it glides beautifully onto the lips without drying them out throughout the day but it does stick around long enough for you to not have to worry about it fading.
The pigment is strong, so you can apply this with one coat – but personally I build it up to get the most vibrancy from this shade.
Now, don’t get me wrong, if you’re going to a dinner party, out for cocktails etc – I’d definitely recommend taking this with you because you’re gonna need to top up. As with most lipsticks, oil and plenty of liquid don’t mix with it and you can almost guarantee that they’ll be lipstick marks on your glass.
If you do need to top it up, be assured that it’s not going to weigh the lips down and it won’t leave them all cakey and patchily built up – which isn’t a look that anyone wants to go for.
However, if you’re nipping out shopping with friends and simply doing a lot of nattering – you’re probably not going to need to apply another layer. It’s pretty sturdy in that sense.
Overall, this is one of my all time favourite pop of colour lipsticks. As I said in the intro, it really brightens up the face and it doesn’t matter what time of year I put this on, it just makes me feel fabulous.
Do you have any lipsticks that just make you feel good? I’d love to know!
