Welcome to my amazing new (ish) MAC lipstick of choice. I only have a couple of MAC lipsticks but I wanted each and every purchase to be well researched, swatched and tried on a few times. This wasn't quite that, but it's the idea that counts. I did research it though and saw it on several blogs and websites, I narrowed my purchase down to Girl About Town or Impassioned which I do believe is very similar. I went with this in the end when I saw a Debenhams 10% sale. It worked out at £12.60 which is still pretty expensive, but it felt better to get discount and justifiable since I needed a new lipstick for Christmas, obviously..

With that in mind, I am impressed with it and it's served me well on special occasions. It lasts a good couple of hours after eating and drinking but didn't last as long as I'd hoped, about 3 hours on average on my lips. After trying the Revlon lip stains that last hours and hours, I was spoilt and got used to them staining my mugs but still going strong. The colour pay off is amazing. As you can kind of see, it's a bright fuschia pink with blue undertones. It has an amplified-creme finish which doesn't dry out my lips.

As with all MAC lipsticks, I love the vanilla-fake scent. I won't be building up a huge collection of MAC products as some things aren't quite worth the price tag, but for now I'm happy with my collection. This is very long-lasting and I'll be swatching more products to spend my Christmas money on when the manic Christmas sales shopping has calmed down somewhat.

What was your favourite Christmas gift if you celebrate it? Do you have any Christmas traditions?

    1. It's worth it for the colour and pigmentation alone. Mac lipsticks are pretty good for their shade range and this doesn't disappoint x
