** Please note, the lipstick was applied using a lip brush, this will result in the lipstick looking lighter/brighter than if applied directly from the bullet - it also makes the lipstick last longer on the lips **

I don't have many MAC lipsticks, I kicked off my collection with Rebel, and then added Creme Cup, which I subsequently lost, and now I have another one to add to my collection.  I'm a big fan of matte lipsticks, they're my favourite, so when I saw this one crop up when searching online, I had to try it.

This, like any other MAC lipstick you'll have tried, is lovely quality.  Yes it's matte, which can often mean 'dry' but this isn't, it's surprisingly moist for a matte lipstick, and doesn't stain the lips too much either, unlike some.  It applies (with a brush) really nicely and stays put for a long time, another thing I love about matte lipsticks.

I really like the colour, although I'm not sure it goes that well with my freshly dyed red hair! Maybe if I applied it from the bullet it'd look better against my hair?  As much as I'm a total sucker for red lipsticks, I do really love a bright pink too - like the Illamasqua Eurydice matte pink, utterly gorgeous!

Overall I really love this lipstick and I'll definitely be wearing it more - I think it'll look much better in a couple of months when I dye my hair chocolate brown :)

  2. I love it and I think it looks fab with your hair!

  4. I think I am the only girl on the planet who doesn't own a single Mac lipstick, haha! This shade is very pretty and I think it suits you perfectly! x

  5. ooooh this looks lovely on you and not dry at all. I've got a few MAC lipsticks I used to wear when gong out a lot but they're all a bit bold for work now. I need to dig them out and get more use out of them.

  6. Thats a really nice shade of pink. That's definitely a color i would wear x

  7. I like how you can apply from the bullet and using a lip brush to get a completely different colour - it's like having two lipsticks!! xx
