What we say:
When it comes to make-up looks, there is nothing more beautiful than a clean complexion paired with a beautiful red statement lip!

In my opinion there is only one red lipstick that need be mentioned and that is MAC shade Russian Red. I have a cool skin tone, so I prefer lipstick shades that have a blue undertone and MAC have perfected that with Russian Red. It is the perfect true red that has just the right amount of cool tone in it!

If you are looking for a long lasting lipstick then MAC’s original lipstick formula is the one for you. I apply my lipstick with a lip brush as I find it to be the most precise application and once I have blotted my lips my lipstick is set for up to 4 hours. Considering this lipstick isn’t marketed as a “long wear” lipstick, I’d say 4 hours is pretty darn good, especially considering the fact that this lipstick can make it through eating!

The finish of this lipstick is the perfect mix of matte and high shine as it doesn’t have an overly glossy finish, but it stills has a touch of shine to it. Because it has a touch of shine to it, I also find that it isn’t as drying as most matte lipsticks.

I have two nude shades in this formula and I love them both equally. I honestly don’t think you can go wrong with this lipstick. With over 100 shades to choose from, you are bound to find our perfect shade for every season!

Satin Lipstick in Del Rio

Cleo Patrick

I’ve always been a MAC girl but for some reason, I’m super basic when it comes to lipstick. I just couldn’t bring myself to spend the money on it, but then I started getting into MAC’s lipsticks (the product that made them famous) and now I just cannot go back to anything else.

I just discovered the colour Del Rio in the Satin finish and I love it. The colour for my medium brown skin (NC45) is a lovely darker nude, which I’ve been searching for, for ages! The finish is a lovely semi-matte yet quite creamy so it doesn’t dry out your lips. Still, a lipstick primer is always a good idea! It also has a slight lustre, that I also enjoy when wearing a nude coloured lipstick.

I’m chuffed! It stays on for quite long, not all day but a lipstick that slips on easily and stays for a while is definitely a winner! I’m very pleased with MAC’s Satin formula.

So last week I purchased my first ever Mac Lipstick and oh my goodness… I love it !! No need to moisturise my lips before the application and it lasts soo soo long. Looks like i’ll need one in each shade.

The past week I have found myself being drawn to a certain MAC lipstick. I don’t use MAC very often because I find it expensive however I make an exception for lipsticks because I love the colour and feel of MAC on my lips.

This week I needed to use a dark purple shade of lipstick on a dark skinned girl. Being a huge fan of purple on coloured skin, I stumbled upon the lipstick named ‘rebel’.

I used it all week and each time, the colour came out just as beautiful as the time before. Since I was using the colour for screen, I needed to reply it and keep the colour fresh often. What I loved about this lipstick was that I did not have to completely reapply it each time, just touching it up seemed to do the trick.

Being able to only touch up the colour every few hours was great for me because I did not waste as much product. Additionally, the lipstick didn’t dry my model’s lips as much which made it a more pleasurable experience for her too. I was really impressed with this lipstick and am going to continue to grow my MAC lipstick collection.

Super luxurious and long lasting

I used the ‘Love Lorn’ shade and used it to its very last! It was a smooth application, colour rich so no need to apply heavily – which also feels light on the lips. Normally a long lasting lipstick dries out the lips but this one does not. The top gloss may dissapear as the day goes on but the colour stays and your lips stay soft. Amazing formula, nice scent and sleek black packaging. The lipstick for the busy, sophisticated, modern woman.

I have always had an obsession with lips, I think that they are the most beautiful part of the body, even more so when MAC Lipstick is applied. The volume, the intensity of the colours and the TEXTURE is absolutely amazing, I highly recommend MAC Lipstick to all in search of not only a great brand but a fantastic “pick me upper”.

Super staying power

I simply love the matte range of MAC lipstick. It has super staying power. Although it’s a bit pricey it’s definitely worth the investment.
